Known from movies
Elizabeth Turner is a model and Instagram sensation, who has attracted nearly a million followers to her social media accounts. She was also spotted with Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio, while the duo were chilling on the beach. Did they go out secretly?
Early life and family
Elizabeth Cameron Turner was born on July 30, 1992 in Griffin, Georgia, USA, so her zodiac sign is Leo and she is an American national. Her mother’s name is Annie Turner, who according to Elizabeth has always been very supportive of all her endeavors and has encouraged her to pursue her dreams, whatever they are. Elizabeth’s father is a retired businessman. She has an older sister, Sarah Taboada, who is a former model and currently works as a photographer, taking engagement photos, weddings, and family photos, and a younger brother, Harrison Turner.
Since childhood, Elizabeth loved being the center of attention; she has always been very active in different kinds of sports, she did a lot of volleyball, running and soccer.
Elizabeth graduated from Archbishop Spalding High School in 2010 and immediately enrolled at Duke University, graduating with a BSc in English Language and Literature/Letters. While attending college, Elizabeth underwent several successful internships, including Davis Entertainment, the Nasher Museum of Art, and Picture Shack Entertainment. She also worked as a news anchor at Duke Student Broadcasting. Elizabeth feels blessed to have such an education: “My most prized possession is probably my Duke degree.
Yes, I missed the start of my modeling career while at Duke, but I wouldn’t trade that degree for anything,” she shared in her interview with GQ in 2016. She also said that if she wasn’t a model she would be studying for a PhD in Psychology as she is totally in love with the subject and helping people.
Modeling career: first steps
Elizabeth began her modeling career in her senior year of high school, was featured in the pages of Teen Vogue in 2010, and signed her first contract with Factor Women Model Management, based in Atlanta, Georgia. In the spring of 2010, Elizabeth worked for Belk magazine and in November graced the cover of The South magazine.

She later appeared in the April 2011 issue of Seventeen Prom, and in January 2012 was featured in one of Kohl’s campaigns. Elizabeth quickly understood that it was difficult for her to balance her studies and her modeling career, so she took a break from work until she graduated, and started modeling again in 2014. The gap in her work experience did not faze anyone, and she soon received more offers from various brands and companies, as well as from modeling agencies.
Further career development
Since 2014, Elizabeth has had the opportunity to work with LA Models, Wilhelmina Models, Elite Model Management and Women/360 Management, as well as popular brands such as Luli Fama, Jockey International and PacSun, as well as being featured in respected magazines such as GQ and Maxim.
Elizabeth graced the cover of the March 2019 issue of Glitter Japan. Since 2015, Elizabeth has been working as a brand ambassador for Guess Jeans and Lingerie, appearing in numerous commercial campaigns of the brand, and even representing it at Coachella in 2016. It’s worth it worth saying that Guess has signed contracts with such notable models as Naomi Campbell, Kate Upton and Anna Nicole Smith, so Elizabeth is in pretty good company.
Since 2014, Elizabeth has been developing her Instagram account and her efforts have paid off. She has gained a huge following from her social media account, on her way to a million milestone in April 2020. She usually posts her photos from different photo shoots but sometimes shares something personal.
Her social media fame has earned Elizabeth commercial contracts with brands such as AmEx and Frankie’s Bikinis.
Controversy with SnapChat
In July 2011, Elizabeth modeled for a promotional campaign of the SnapChat application with her older sister Sarah, including shooting for the first Picaboo application for iPhone. However, the sisters later discovered that their photos were being used in further campaigns, so they both filed a lawsuit against SnapChat and Picaboo in September 2014, accusing them of reputational damage and misuse of the photos. Elizabeth too claimed that she worked with SnapChat’s co-founder named Evan Spiegel for free, who convinced her to actually donate her photos to the project, promising her not to use them anywhere else.
Sarah Turner also participated in the shoot, meeting Evan Spiegel and his colleague Bobby Murphy at Spiegel’s residence in Toyopa Drive, Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles. Elizabeth and Sarah later emphasized that their photos were only taken for an iPhone application version, when in fact they were used for the Android version of the app, as well as on the application’s website. Sarah and Elizabeth claimed that it was their photos that also helped SnapChat’s founders reach the app’s current valuation, which was around $10 billion at the time. The lawsuit was settled, but no information about the payment to the Turner sisters was revealed.
Private life. Did Elizabeth date Leonardo DiCaprio?
Elizabeth has always been very secretive about her private life, but her name was in the headlines of all media in 2017 and her photos with Leonardo DiCaprio.
The star of “Titanic” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” enjoyed his time with Elizabeth on one of Malibu’s beaches in September 2017, and they were also caught by paparazzi while having dinner together on December 2, 2017, according to Radar Online. Neither Elizabeth nor Leonardo have ever confirmed the fact of their relationship. It is worth noting that in the same year 2017, Leonardo dated another model Toni Garrn, with whom he had an affair from 2013 to 2014, and then broke up for unknown reasons.
Elizabeth dated tennis reporter Cale Hammond; the couple once enjoyed their time at one of the parties at the home of LeBron James (the basketball star) and were kicked out of the bedroom when LeBron himself appeared there to pass the time with three other women.
In September 2019, Elizabeth was spotted with Ryan James Eggold as they were seen together at the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. the New England Patriots.
Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts
Elizabeth trains a lot; her favorite form of cardio is boxing, sometimes kickboxing, which she says is much harder. She also enjoys reading and watching movies in the cinema. Elizabeth’s dream destination is Australia; she hasn’t been there yet, but she would love to travel there, as she shared her dreams in her interview with GQ in 2017. She rarely reads the comments on her photos on her social media accounts.
Elizabeth does a lot of volunteer work; she supported the Women’s Cancer Research Fund and also visited Food bank for New York City to participate in the “Feeding America” program, the largest hunger relief program in the US.
Being a vegan, Elizabeth also promoted PETA’s “Body By Vegan” campaign, encouraging her followers to give up meat meals at least once a day or one day a week: “If you know me, you know one of the most important things in my life is loving and protecting animals. I choose to be vegan because I love ALL animals equally,” Elizabeth shared on her Instagram account.
Speaking of her craziest experience during a photo shoot, Elizabeth laughs, “Once I sat in a water-filled bathtub for six hours. The shoot was for a make-up campaign and I had a team of four men who made sure I was always completely covered in bubbles,” she recalls the unusual situation in one of her Job interviews.
