If you attended the Coachella music festival this year, you may have been lucky enough to spot some celebrities like Queen Latifah, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Diane Kruger, Kate Bosworth, Emma Roberts, Leah Michele, Fergie, Paris Hilton, and supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio (pictured here with Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers), who got attention for bringing her young daughter Anja to the festival. While we will never know what these two were discussing when this photo was taken, we can only hope that Joe kept his cool and didn't break any of the cardinal rules of what not to say to a supermodel.

You're so tall.

This is one line that many top models over six feet tall have probably heard before, like Victoria's Secret Angel Karlie Kloss. Standing 6'1" Kloss' hobbies include performing classical ballet, while other statuesque supermodels enjoy sports - like former pro volleyball player / fashion model Gabrielle Reece (6'3") and Fashion Star host, Elle 'The Body' Macpherson (6'0") who once produced her own series of workout videos.

Are those your grandchildren?

Although you would never guess it from her youthful appearance, actress and model Halle Berry had two children after turning 40, with the second at age 46. But having children later in life is nothing new for supermodels. Christie Brinkley, Heidi Klum, and Elle Macpherson were all moms to newborns and toddlers after reaching their 40th birthdays, and they looked great doing it.

Prior to judging America's Next Top Model Cycles 10 and 12, Paulina Porizkova was the first model from Central Europe to grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition back in 1984. She told Oprah during a panel interview of 90s supermodels that it was hurtful when recently asked by her mailman if she knew that a 'hot model' lived in her building.

In celebration of her 60th birthday, Christie Brinkley revealed to People Magazine that she dates younger men, and that men her own age generally show little interest in women her age. The top model who gained fame in the 80s is still going strong - touring with Chicago the musical and launching her own line of wigs and hairpieces.

Do you have a sister?

While many supermodels do have siblings, there are probably none more famous than the sister of top fashion model and singer Solange Knowles, younger sister of Beyonce. The two made headlines when Beyonce (left) joined her baby sis Solange (right) on stage at Coachella 2014.
