Josie Maran may be the founder of one of the world’s most-recognized cosmetics lines, but before her business success, she was a three-time SI Swimsuit model (2000-02). The California native got her start in modeling while a high school student and was a Guess Girl by the time she was 20. Her biggest career achievement (arguably) was appearing in the Backstreet Boys’ 1999 video for Everybody (Backstreet’s Back). She’s also appeared in a number of movies including The Aviator, The Confession, Van Helsing and Little Black Book. In this 2002 video from Guatemala, Josie discusses working with a female photographer (Pamela Hanson) and how it differs from a man. She also is clearly in awe of the Guatemalan scenery and calls it the most beautiful place she’s ever visited.
