Early years

Rayder was born in River Falls, Wisconsin, where she was identified as Heidi Rayder. She moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, a large city near her home town, where she was first approached by a model scout who ignited her curiosity in the field as a teen. She had her first big success in 1992, when she met photographer Steven Meisel. Meisel paid for a photo shoot, the first of many. Rayder's first session was shortly published in the magazine Italian Glamour. She attended River Falls High School, where she competed for the basketball team, and Caryn Modeling & Talent Agency in Minneapolis began her modeling work. In her youth, she worked at a golf clubhouse. To be more exotic, she was given the stage name Francesca.

Personal life

Rayder has three sisters and one brother; her father was still living in River Falls in 2004.

Rayder was mistakenly attached to Nicolas Cage after his friendship with Lisa Marie Presley ended and she was dating his cousin Roman Coppola in 2002. Coppola's family was long-running and fruitful; by some accounts, she was close to marrying Francis Ford Coppola's son. Rayder and her sister Missy lived across the street from each other early in their careers. Both of them were photographed on Harper's Bazaar's May 2000 front page together. The Rayder sisters (along with a new sister named Molly) appeared in holiday advertisements for Gap as siblings in 2003, the theme "Put a Little Love in Your Heart" was a play on televisions. The Rayder sisters appeared in Gap holiday ads as a pair in later years.

Flea, Rayder's bass player, first appeared on Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2004. The couple revealed their marriage in January 2005. Sunny Bebop Balzary, Rayder's first child, was born on October 26, 2005. Sunny's godfather, John Frusciante, is Flea's bandmate. Anthony Kiedis wrote "Hard to Concentrate" from the Red Hot Chili Peppers' 2006 album Stadium Arcadium as a wedding plan for Flea and Rayder. Rayder and Flea lived together in Malibu, California, before separating.

Rayder is featured in the October 2010 issue of "'C' Magazine" as part of a group of women friends known as "The L.A. Ladies Choir" who meets at her and Flea's house in Los Feliz. Flea is her husband, according to the piece, and he plays bass for the women's group. "Joyfully" is the choir's group's first album in September.

Rayder is a knowledgeable Boston Red Sox fan who is also a Green Bay Packers fan. Rayder has volunteered her time for youth in the arts. Rayder has a tattoo on her back.

Career highlights

On the 1997 fall runway for designers like Chanel, Christian Lacroix, and Dries van Noten, Rayder made her Paris runway debut.

She became the face of Givenchy and Meisel photographers for Dolce & Gabbana and Versace ad campaigns in 1999. The New York Times referred to her and her sister together as the infamous Rayder Sisters in the fall of 2000. Frankie was also referred to as an it girl at the time.

She became Givenchy's star in 1999. Rayder was booked solid for four or five shows during New York Fashion Week 1999, including Marc Jacobs, Badgley Mischka, Daryl K, Tommy Hilfiger, and John Bartlett. She was one of the top-priced models in 2000. She appeared in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for the first time this season. She was a nominee at the 2000 VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards for Model of the Year along with Gisele Bündchen, Carmen Kass, Angela Lindvall, and Maggie Rizer, but Kass was the king after defending champion Bundchen was voted to host the event later this year.

In 2003, Chanel's face was born. Rayder spent several years with top designers at New York Fashion Week. Stewart Shining photographed Rayder during the 40th anniversary of the Swimsuit Issue. Rayder, as well as Cheryl Tiegs and Melissa Keller, are two of the many models associated with Minnesota who have made a name for themselves in the Swimsuit Issue. She has appeared in 1999, 2000, 2002, and 2003 Victoria's Secret fashion shows, as well as a cameo appearance in the 2001 film Zoolander. GQ named her the Sexiest Woman in the World in the early 2000s.

In 2004, Ann Taylor, Patti Hansen, Patti Hansen, Alexandra Richards, Twiggy, and Beverly Johnson were among the featured models in the 50-model Ann Taylor ad campaign photographed by Annie Leibovitz. Rayder was also mentioned in the press for many months as a result of a Godiva Chocolatier ad campaign. In 2005, she appeared in advertisements, which also included models such as Sophie Dahl and Anouck Lepere, where the models posed lovingly with chocolate items for Valentine's Day in Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and Elle. The promotion was for chocolate items that came with a "lottery" ticket, which could have cost the purchaser 52 pairs of Manolo Blahnik shoes, one of which was custom-designed by Blahnik himself. In the fall of 2004, the ads first gained exposure.

Rayder went on a long hiatus from runway modeling between 2004 and 2009. In February 2009, she returned to the stage in New York for the Fall 2009 show. She had previously worked in print advertising for both Stella McCartney and Roberto Cavalli, as well as the 2008 Gap holiday campaign. Rayder was also one of The Gap's United States and Japan 2009 spring/summer campaigns. Rayder did covergirl work for the February 2009 Vogue Espaa and one of fourteen alternative covers for the September 2008 Vogue magazine as part of her comeback.
