Modelling opportunities opened up for Benitez soon after, first in Mexico, where she started out her career, and then in the United States and Europe.

In 1996, she appeared on the cover of Vogue Italy three times; April, August and September. After signing with Elite Model Management, she then managed to appear on the covers of many fashion magazines, including Vogue, Elle, Glamour, Mademoiselle, Harper's Bazaar, and Marie Claire.

The Mexican beauty has also done advertising campaign work for Dolce & Gabbana, Macy's, Episode, I-N-C, J.Crew, Oscar de la Renta, Rena Lange, Nine West, Valentino, and Jones New York. Benitez also has modelled for Victoria's Secret.

Benitez appeared in the 1999 Pirelli Calendar that featured "Women Through the Decades". She was photographed as a representative of the "groovy '70s". Benitez was also selected to be on the cover of the 2001 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
