During her childhood, she was mocked by the others because of her atypical physique: she was extra-thin, 6 feet tall and had a ‘strange face’. She even confessed to Cable News Network: "I would never think that a girl who spent most of her childhood with a unibrow, glasses and a Yoda shirt would be in Vogue Italia", and that she was embracing an "alien-rat-demon-goblin-gremlin sort of vibe". She also admitted to have been a very strange child.
She was scouted in a flea market in New York by an agent of The Society Management, a branch of Elite, and one of the biggest American modeling agencies.
She said her first show (Proenza Schouler) got her confused, because she wasn’t expecting to walk the runway just one week after being scouted. Molly Bair is now at The Society New York, Elite London, Elite Milan and Elite Paris.
