Cybill Shepherd

"According to Shepherd's autobiography, it was a 1970 Glamour magazine cover that caught the eye of film director Peter Bogdanovich. His then-wife, Polly Platt, claimed that it was she who, upon seeing the cover in a check-out line in a Ralphs grocery store in southern California, said "That's Jacy,"[3] referring to the role Bogdanovich was casting—and ultimately offered to Shepherd—in The Last Picture Show (1971). She became intimately involved with him, as well as co-star Jeff Bridges, screenwriter Larry McMurtry, and then location manager Frank Marshall." (Wikipédia)

"In the early 1980s, MacDowell modelled for Vogue magazine and appeared in ad campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent, Vassarette, Armani perfume, Sabeth-Row, Mink International, Anne Klein and Bill Blass. A series of billboards in Times Square and national television commercials for Calvin Klein drew attention to her and led to her 1984 film debut in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, a role in which her lines were dubbed by Glenn Close because her Southern accent was too pronounced for her to play the role of an Englishwoman.[5] In 1985, she had a small part in St. Elmo's Fire."

Kim Basinger

"Basinger studied ballet from about age three to her mid-teens. By her mid teens, she grew in confidence and successfully auditioned for the school cheerleading team.[1] When Basinger was 16, she started modeling, by winning the Athens Junior Miss contest. She then won the title "Junior Miss Georgia".[8] She competed in the national Junior Miss pageant and was offered a modeling contract with the Ford Modeling Agency.[1] She turned it down in favor of singing and acting, and enrolled at the University of Georgia, but soon reconsidered and went to New York to become a Ford model.[1] Despite earning $1,000 a day, Basinger never enjoyed modeling, saying "It was very hard to go from one booking to another and always have to deal with the way I looked. I couldn't stand it. I felt myself choking."[1] Basinger has said that even as a model, when others relished looking in the mirror before appearing, she abhorred it and would avoid mirrors out of insecurity.[9] Not long after her Ford deal, Basinger appeared on the cover of magazines. She appeared in hundreds of advertisements throughout the early 1970s, most notably as the Breck Shampoo girl." (Wikipédia)

In that year, Bellucci made the transition to acting and began taking acting classes.

"In 1997, she studied acting in Los Angeles and New York.[3] In 1998, she paced down runways in ready-to-wear fashion shows for designers such as Antonio Berardi, Bella Freud, Corinne Cobson, Claude Montana, and Dolce & Gabbana. As for print advertising, Velásquez appeared in ads for Chanel's Allure, Roberto Verino's Verino fragrance, as well as Victoria's Secret. Early in her modelling career, she appeared in several issues of the annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. This led to a large number of further modeling engagements, which ultimately culminated in her being ranked #45 on the Maxim Hot 100 Women of 2001[4] and #16 in Stuff magazine's "102 Sexiest Women in the World" poll in 2002."

Milla Jovovich

" A few days later, after shooting her first test, her pictures were shown to famed photographer Herb Ritz who immediately recognized the child Milla's beauty and strong persona. The next day Ritts booked the 11-year-old Milla for the cover of Italian magazine Lei, and London style magazine The Face. The covers gave the young Milla her launch and soon after legendary photographer Richard Avedon hired her for the American Edition of Mademoiselle. When the magazine became aware of Milla's age they refused to run the cover insisting that the magazine was a Women's magazine. Avedon threatened to stop shooting for the publication if they did not honor his artistic choice and the magazine relented and ran the cover, making eleven-year-old Milla the youngest model to ever appear on the cover of an American Women's Fashion Magazine. Avedon was also head of marketing at Revlon at the time, and chose young Milla to appear with established models Alexa Singer and Sandra Zatezalo in Revlon's "Most Unforgettable Women in the World" advertisements.

It was Milla's early work with Ritz, Avedon and Peter Lindbergh that led to her success in advertising, bringing the young model contracts and covers for both Vogue and Cosmopolitan.[13] Since then, she has been featured on more than 100 magazine covers, including all the major fashion magazines in the US.[25] She has been part of campaigns for Banana Republic, Christian Dior, Damiani, Donna Karan, Gap, Versace, Calvin Klein, DKNY, Coach, Giorgio Armani, H&M, and Revlon."

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley - Transformers

Abbey Lee Kershaw - Mad Max: Fury Road

Kate Upton - The Other Woman

Brooklyn Decker - Just Go With It

Heidi Klum - Ella Enchanted

Shalom Harlow - Vanilla Sky

Tao Okamoto - Wolverine

Devon Aoki - 2 Fast 2 Furious

Cara Delevingne - Paper Towns

Suki Waterhouse and Agyness Deyn - Pusher

Emily Ratajkowski - Gone Girl

I would count Milla, Uma, Jessica, Diane, Olga, Andie, and Famke as actresses more then models these days.

Thus would
Cameron Diaz - The Mask
Halle Berry - X-Men
Charlize Theron - The Devil's Advocate
Jaime King - Sin City
Monica Bellucci - Bram Stoker's Dracula
Saffron Burrows - Deep Blue Sea
Freida Pinto - Slumdog Millionaire

be acceptable applicants for the list as they had successful modelling careers before they became actresses?
