Maggie Rizer knew she had made it as a model when, about a year after she moved from the small town of Watertown, in upstate New York, to Manhattan, her agent called to tell her that she had booked a Louis Vuitton ad campaign. "I remember him saying, 'It pays only $200,000鈥攂ut don't worry: Your rate will go up,'" she recalls, breaking into a laugh over breakfast at Sant Ambroeus on the Upper East Side.

A two-year relationship with Alex Mehran, 27, a real estate developer who lives with Rizer and golden retrievers Henry and Albert in New York City, has helped, as has a return to the spotlight. In October she signed with Trump Model Management ("Maggie is iconic; she can easily be big again," says her agent, Dean Rogers) and in the past few months has shot ads for Sephora and worked with designer Nicole Miller, in addition to appearing as a guest judge on the new CW reality competition Stylista.

His death, when she was 14, "still hurts," says Rizer, who is producing an AIDS documentary. "It's a big thing missing from my life."
