Tomlinson is 180cm high, and her measurements are 86cm-59cm-86cm. She has brown hair and blue/green eyes. Her dress size is 34, while her shoe size is 41. She is well known for her delicate bone structure and her long legs.
Tomlinson made her runway debut in 2004 when she appeared in shows in Milan and Paris for big names like Chanel, Christian Dior, Marni, Jil Sander, Giorgio Armani, and Louis Vuitton. In 2006, she then walked in the spring shows in New York and Paris for 3.1 philip lim, Derek Lam, Carolina Herrera, and John Galliano. While Tomlinson only walked in a few major shows for 2005 and 2006, her runway work picked up in 2007. She walked in the spring show for Christian Dior, Givenchy, and Armani Prive in Paris in January. Then in September, she appeared on the catwalk for Balenciaga, Hermes, Lanvin, Givenchy, and she closed the spring Adam Lippes show.
January 2008 saw Tomlinson on the runway for Christian Dior, Armani Prive, Valentino, and Givenchy in Paris. She also walked in the fall show for Balenciaga in Paris in March. That summer saw Tomlinson modelling designs by Christian Dior, Givenchy, and Armani Prive in Paris. 2008 would become one of Tomlinson’s busiest years—in September, she once again took to the runway, walking for Chanel, John Galliano, Sonia Rykiel, Christian Lacroix, and Yves Saint Laurent.
It was during the January 2009 Chanel show that Tomlinson took a small tumble. She was wearing very high heels, and her right foot came down wrong on the runway. She had recovered by March, however, and fearlessly opened the Anne Valerie Hash fall show in Paris.

In 2008, she was featured in Numero, Muse, Italian Vogue, and appeared on the cover of Italian Flair. Finally, her 2009 appearances in print include modelling for ad campaigns for St. John and Roberto Cavalli Class, and she made appearances on the covers of two Italian magazines: Marie Claire (in June and September) and Flair.
