Wilhelmina modeller nyc

Does the perfect time to move ever come? Am I silly for wanting to (temporarily?) move to California in the summer? Help!

2020.03.10 02:42 GiveYourselfAFry Does the perfect time to move ever come? Am I silly for wanting to (temporarily?) move to California in the summer? Help!

I'm sure most will respond with some version of "Only you can answer this question," and while I know that is technically true, I still would like input from those with perspectives that may be different from my own.

** Jump to "fast forward to now" if you don't care about why/how I got into acting.

Background/Context: Despite being painfully shy, I wanted to be an actor when I was younger, so my parents took to me to casting calls & talent scouting things & whatnot. When I was about 5 or 6 I got to the final rounds of one of these talent things & was interviewing with some agent. He was trying to convince my parents to move us out to LA or NYC. They ended up deciding against it (I will never not regret this), but I did eventually end up signing with Wilhelmina models here. After signing, I did some modeling and acting classes but was so camera shy and had such bad anxiety that I thought maybe this wasn't for me. Once I got to high school I pretty much stopped pursuing it altogether. Fast forward to college, I gained some confidence, managed my anxiety better, and movies were filming in town. I decide to audition to be an extra & the movie bug has bitten me again. This then makes me decide to pursue acting again in the form of student films and local film projects etc. (I'm very proud of myself of mastering my stage-fright & insecurities the way I have!)

Fast forward to now:
I am a mid-20s female currently living in the midwest US. I've been pursuing acting in one capacity or another for a little less than a year. I have not attempted to sign with an agency yet (although more than one has approached me at local film events) because I know the first thing they are going to say is to go get new headshots and likely take more acting classes or what have you. I was trying to build my confidence & gain experience in student films & shorts so that I could audition for the agency with my best foot forward (I also know that once I sign I will likely be busy with auditions, so I am biding my time a bit). Granted, while I have no formal acting training - outside of the acting and modeling classes I took when I was much younger -, I do have a decent amount of "performance" experience and "skills", but I'm not sure if that counts for anything ...?

I was a competitive gymnast at an elite Olympic gym for ~13 years, I have formal dance training and performed with a professional ballet company for multiple years (I was not a professional though), I was a nationally competitive equestrian (jumping), I was a figure skater, I played tennis, did some archery and shooting. I'm an artist, photographer, writer etc. (With this in mind, I wonder if this will help pad my resume where I am lacking formal acting training?) .
(I also have an associates, BA, & BS in psychology & even have published research. Not sure if that matters either)

Here's my dilemma: I have been doing decently within the local film scene here in terms of working on projects and making connections within the last year. I'm grateful for this, but my goal has always been to move, ideally to California, especially because I know I will only ever to be able to accomplish so much where I'm at.
So, my close actofilmmakewriter friend is probably moving to Cali this summer and staying there for at least a year. He asked if I wanted to go with him and split the costs. I'm wondering if I should go...? If I went, it wouldn't mean I would have to stay for the entire year if it turned out to be going very poorly. I could come back and stay with my family if it went sour...
And I know I'm not going to land in Cali as a nobody & get cast in some breakthrough role or anything. However, I feel like if I go, I never know who I could end up meeting and where that could lead, especially since I get along with people very well & have had great success with the "foot in the door" strategy - in all areas of my life. So I wonder if just getting out there and networking would be to my benefit? Even if nothing concrete happens acting wise? Especially since that is how I have gotten many of my opportunities here - through networking. I mean you can't get cast if people don't know you exist and it is difficult to meet anyone in California if you're on the other side of the country.

I'm not worried about moving and uprooting my life or anything like that, that actually sounds exciting, and comforting that someone I know would also be out there (plus I have some family in Vegas). I'd also be perfectly willing to downgrade my way of living as well.
What I AM worried about is not having enough experience or money; however, I know I will feel like I never have enough money to go... I just feel like I am at a crossroads: either buckle down & get an agent here, or start putting my energy (& savings) towards preparing to move out there in the summer.
I'm just worried that I'm not getting any younger and that if I don't jump at this opportunity while it is here I may never get out there :( I feel I have wasted enough time.
There are always 1000 reasons not to do something and moving will always be an expense, but I feel like if I wait for the "right" time to come, I'll be waiting forever... I keep asking myself, "if not now, then when?"

Any advice?

2017.11.13 10:12 FeelMyOats ANTM - Where Are They Now? (Cycle 3)

Hi guys! Here are the girls from Cycle 3. If you guys know any of the missing girls’ social media handles, please let me know so I can add it to this post!
 
  Name: Magdalena Rivas Placed: 14th Age: 36/37 (Estimate only; birthday isn’t online) First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 0 (eliminated outside of panel) Twitter Followers: N/A Instagram Followers: 412 (@magdarivas) Magdalena Rivas on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 3 Joining America’s Next Top Model Cycle 3 did not necessarily put Rivas’ modeling career into high gear as she was the first one eliminated from the 14 finalists. She did get a little taste of what professional models go through everyday when they were flown from New York to Jamaica to do their very first photo shoot. She was eliminated on the spot, the morning after the photo shoot.
  POST-TOP MODEL Magdalena has kept a low profile since the show. She’s done some modeling work, but is not currently being represented by an agency. Magdalena has done print work for Vibe Magazine, ELLEGirl, and The Lab Uptown. She currently (according to her facebook) works for Children’s Health, a Nonprofit Organization based in Dallas, Texas. She has 2 beautiful girls, Nyla and Fiona.
  Name: Leah Darrow Placed: 13th Age: 36/37 (Estimate only; birthday isn’t online) First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: 23.7k (@leahdarrow) Instagram Followers: 27.3k (@leah.darrow) Leah Darrow on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 3 Although it’s clear that Leah possesses the physical attributes of a model, she was the second to be cut on America’s Next Top Model on Cycle 3. Her removal from the show was brought upon by Leah’s plain and unimpressive photo shoot. The photographer remarked that Leah did not make eye contact with the camera and Tyra Banks commented that she did not position herself well in the pictures. After being eliminated, she walked away from the room without bidding the others farewell, but vowed to keep on pursuing her dream to become a professional model.
  POST-TOP MODEL After appearing on the show, Leah appeared in FHM Magazine. Since then, she is now an advocate for the Roman Catholic Church and Catholic modeling, doing print work for publications for The St. Louis Review, The Catholic Weekly, Lighthouse Catholic Media, YFE.org, as well as the cover and a spread in Family Foundation Magazine. Some of Leah’s speeches cover topics such as modesty, chastity, the pro-life message (including the death penalty), “catholic” fashion, conversion from sin, and living your life for Christ.
  Since the show, Leah has a regular podcast entitled Do Something Beautiful (now on it’s fourth season) where she regularly discusses a variety of topics. She has also come out with her own book, The Other Side of Beauty, based on the lies we are told about our worth being tied to our appearance and instead invites us to look again at the real meaning of beauty. She has also appeared in TV series such as The Journey Home and Beloved. In 2012, she married her boyfriend Ricky, who serves in the US Military. Leah has 3 beautiful children: Agnes (born 2013), Ambrose (born 2015), and Violet (born 2016). In May 2017, Leah graduated with Magna cum Laude honors with her Masters in Theology from the Augustine Institute.
  Name: Julie Titus Placed: 12th Age: 31/32 (Estimate only; birthday isn’t online) First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: 214 (@JustifiedJulie) Instagram Followers: 632 (@ninewestjewel) Julie Titus on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 3 Julie seemed to have a promising start, but during the third photo shoot in America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 3, her performance fell short of being excellent to the judges. Furthermore, at the panel, Julie admitted that the reason why she joined the show was to gain more exposure as a clothes designer rather than a model. The revelation ultimately led to her elimination.
  POST-TOP MODEL Julie is another one of those girls has kept a low profile since the show. She doesn’t have a big online foot print, except for her twitter and her instagram. She has done print work for Republic of Brown, and has appeared the Ray Billion Look Book. Sometime after the show, she worked as a North American sales manager for the Thursday Island clothing line. She has also mentored models for The Model Experience. In July 2015 (I think), she married her boyfriend, Bill Clifford, in California.
  Name: Kristi Grommet Placed: 11th Age: 31/32 (Estimate only; birthday isn’t online) First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: N/A Instagram Followers: N/A Kristi Grommet on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 3 Kristi was memorable for coming into initial auditions wearing her senior prom dress, which was made from an American Flag. The fourth week in America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 3 had the models posing for Lee Jeans ads with hair extensions braided into their hair. Kristi Grommet may have had the looks and the body, but her lack of confidence during the challenge was what made Tyra and her fellow judges cut Kristi from the competition.
  POST-TOP MODEL After her stint on America’s Next Top Model, Kristi went on to model for In Touch Magazine, where she portrayed Miranda from the HBO series Sex and the City. She has done some test shots, but hasn’t really pursued modelling. In 2014, she directed a freshman/sophomore production of Arabian Nights. She is not currently represented by an agency. She doesn’t have a big footprint on the internet, since there was very little about her online. In 2006, her boyfriend Gunther proposed to her in Times Square in New York City. She currently has 2 sons and 1 daughter. Aside from that, not much is known about what she’s up to these days.
  Name: Jennipher Uralcher, née Frost Placed: 10th Age: 35 First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 2 Twitter Followers: 1,420 (@Jennipherfrost) Instagram Followers: 945 (@j.urlacher) Jennipher Frost on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 3 Her time on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 3 didn’t last very long as she was the fourth contestant eliminated by the judges. During her short stay in the competition, Jennipher frequently had confrontations with Eva Pigford because of the latter’s attitude. She also did not mix well with Ann Markley, with whom she almost engaged in a fight. Part of the makeover that Jennipher received from the show was a haircut, which she did not enjoy, as she was even seen crying after the hairstylist gave her a shoulder-length hairstyle. The fifth challenge for the season was to pose with roller skates on for a Dooney & Bourke accessories ad. The photos that were taken of her did not impress the judges at all, cutting her journey to the top short.
  POST-TOP MODEL Jennipher has done some print work, but is currently not represented by an agency. She had modeled for Magic Power Boats, Sex Symbol Jeans, Hot Boat, and Fiu Fiu. Sometime after the show, Jennipher became the food and beverage director of the SLS Beverly Hills. In 2012, Jennipher was the marketing manager at Andrea's in Las Vegas. On March 2016, Jennipher married Brian Urlacher, a former NFL linebacker. Their wedding was featured on the cover of Sports Entertainment Today. She is a step-mom to 3 children (from Brian’s former relationship): 2 daughters (Pam and Riley) and a son (Kennedy). Aside from this, not much is known regarding what else she does.
  Name: Kelle Jacob Placed: 9th Age: 32/33 (Estimate only; birthday isn’t online) First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 3 Twitter Followers: 190 (@KelleJ) Instagram Followers: 682 (@kellejacob) Kelle Jacob on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 3 Kelle was sent to the bottom two with Ann Markley during the sixth week of America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 3. Although Tyra criticized them both for not bringing their great personalities into their pictures, the judges decided to take out Kelle, believing that she had less potential as a model. After being eliminated, Kelle remarked that she’ll try hard to build her career on her own, but did not seem overly optimistic. During the show, she won one challenge where the girls had to pose as mannequins in a La Perla store window.
  POST-TOP MODEL After her appearance on the show, Kelle Jacob was in Source Magazine and had a cover of Eminence Magazine. Kelle has modeled for designers and brands such as College Fashionista. After the show, she attended Hunter College in NYC where she pursued her bachelor’s degree in media (with a minor in english).

  ANTM CYCLE 3 On America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 3, it was revealed that Cassie was suffering from bulimia. Tyra offered to give her counseling, but she refused it, choosing to deal with the condition on her own. However, it was not Cassie’s condition that made her the sixth person to be eliminated from the competition. Rather it was the lack of “fierceness” in her photos and her apparent disinterest that drove the judges to send Cassie home.
  POST-TOP MODEL Since the show, Cassie has graduated college in Oklahoma and has done some modeling work including a bridal shot. She was married in February of 2009.Not much else is known about Cassie after Top Model. She has no twitter, her instagram is private and most likely unused, and her fan page on facebook hasn’t been updated in years. Luckily, I found her husband’s facebook and it looks like the couple has 2 children, a boy and a girl.

  ANTM CYCLE 3 For the ninth week of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 3, the remaining girls, including Nicole, were flown to Tokyo in order to shoot a Japanese commercial for Campbell’s Soup. Although all the girls had a difficult time, most especially with learning their lines (which were in Japanese), it was Nicole whom the judges felt did not come through the commercial enough, thus making her the eight contestant to be sent home.
  POST-TOP MODEL Some time after being eliminated from the show, Nicole decided to relocate to San Clemente, California. Nicole did not pursue modeling; instead, she has pursued acting. However, I haven’t found anything from her (acting or modeling wise). Her instagram, which is her most active social media platform, doesn’t show us much about her. Her feed has a lot of selfies, her dog, and some of her other interests. It seems she has moved back home to North Dakota. A quick LinkedIn search shows that she works as an Assistant Manager for The Buckle Inc. Previous job experiences post-ANTM show that she worked for Victoria’s Secret as a Visual Merchandising Manager and Sears as Assistant Manager - Softlines.
  Name: Norelle Griffith, née Van Herk Placed: 5th Age: 33 (Estimate only; birthday isn’t online) First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: 36 (@NorelleGriffith) Instagram Followers: 509 (@norelle_griffith) Norelle Van Herk on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 3 As a finalist on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 3, Norelle was the only competitor among the fourteen girls who came into the competition with braces on her teeth. Her braces were removed as a part of her makeover for the show. Although her overall performance was impressive, her blunders in the Tokyo photo shoot and her difficulty walking on the runway were what compelled the judges to make Norelle the ninth contestant to be eliminated. Her photo shoot for T-Mobile went well, but was not well enough to keep her on the show for another week. During her stint on ANTM, Norelle won a make-up challenge featured during the show’s third episode.
  POST-TOP MODEL Norelle was able to attain considerable success as a model after her appearance on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 3. She received contracts from NOUS models and Dream Models in Asia, and working with these agencies were beneficial as she was able to book numerous advertisements. She has done print work for Sisters Magazine, Yes! Magazine, Sudden Weekly, and Goat Boutique. Norelle has also appeared on the TV show One on One. However, Norelle eventually decided to leave the fashion industry temporarily in order to pursue her education.
  Sometime after the show, Norelle got married to Dave Griffith and now has 2 beautiful kids; 2 sons and a daughter. Not much is know about what happened to her after she left the industry.

  ANTM CYCLE 3 Ann came close to making it to the Top 3 of America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 3, but was the tenth contestant eliminated from the show.

  ANTM CYCLE 3 During Cycle 3, the judges were amazed by her photos, especially the un-retouched beauty shot that she took during the third week of the competition. When she went on her go sees in Japan, she was told that she was too old by one of the designers. She participated in the finale along with winner Eva Pigford and Yaya Da Costa, but Amanda was eliminated when she and Eva were in the bottom 2. The judges had a difficult time deciding whom to send home, as all three contestants had strong CoverGirl photos, and all 3 were considered strong contenders, but in the end, it was Amanda. One of the judges, Janice Dickinson, was a dissenting voice on the judging panel, saying, “I love you!” to Swafford when she was eliminated.
  POST-TOP MODEL Amanda has appeared on the covers of Felt It! Stitch It! Fabulous!

  ANTM CYCLE 3 Yaya DaCosta was a contestant on Cycle 3 of America’s Next Top Model, where she came in second to Eva Pigford. On the show, Yaya showed insecurity regarding her skin, as she was still experiencing breakouts past puberty. While on the show, Yaya won 5 straight challenges (The race up the flight of stairs, the Go-Sees, The Red Carpet interview, The Acting challenge, and The Tea Ceremony. On the eigth episode (“The Girl Who Is Panic-Stricken”), the models were asked to choose a hat as part of their judging test. Yaya chose the cowboy hat, which surprised everyone since Yaya was the model who was proud of her african heritage. When asked why she did not choose the African hat, she claimed that she does not want to be a cliché. She claimed that the hat was made of a very artificial, very cheap kente. During the ninth episode (“The Girls Meet Taye Diggs”), during the judging session, the girls were set a test in which they had to read a commercial and eat umeboshi. Yaya chose to spit her umeboshi almost immediately after putting it in her mouth, which the judges said came across as very disrespectful to the client (if this were to happen in the real world).

2017.11.08 12:06 FeelMyOats ANTM - Where Are They Now? (Cycle 2)

Hi guys! Here's my compilation of the models from Cycle 2. This time it was a bit harder since a number of them have gotten married and have used their husband's last name. Also, there is a 40k character limit that I didn't know about (sue me lol), so I can no longer include the links to the pictures. Most of the girls' portfolio mentioned below is available on all-antm.net.
 
  Name: Anna Bradfield, née Capilli Placed: 12th Age: 38 First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: N/A Instagram Followers: 1306 (@annamariecapilli) Anna Bradfield on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 2 Anna appeared on the show as a plus-sized model on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 2, and was one of the 12 girls chosen to compete in the finals. During her brief stay in the show, her fellow Top Model finalist, Xiomara Frans, gave Anna the pet name “Momma” because of her maternal nature toward the girls. Anna was the first to be eliminated from the show after she refused to do the first photo shoot with Nigel Barker. The challenge was to pose as “Eve,” therefore requiring the girls to strip down. The girls would be posing alongside a male model (who is supposed to play “Adam”), whom would be naked as well. Even though each girl would be painted from head to toe, Anna felt that only her husband has the right to see her with no clothes, thus, she refused to do the nude photo shoot.
  POST-TOP MODEL After Cycle 2, Anna has done print work for Erin London, Forshe Boutique, Robin Callender, Anthony R. Lloyd, The Cotrice Collection, Lila couture bridal gowns, La Bella Vie Boutique, Nicci Hou Afrique Collection, Ruffs & Cuffs, Belk, Salon Next, Bernhardt Huntington Collection Catalogue, Aveva Activewear, and has been featured on MyLittleSecretsOnline.com.
  She has appeared in spreads for in the Spring 2011 issue of Hopelessly Romantic Magazine, Runway Magazine, the Oct/Nov 2011 issue of Oz Magazine, the March 2012 issue of Jezebel Magazine, and has appeared in ads for Fevour cosmetics, Goldilox Hair House, Bashinski Fine Gems & Jewelry, Cadieux Interiors: The Salon Collection, and Body Design Personal Training.
  She is currently raising 2 boys. Aside from modeling, she is currently practicing as a registered dental hygienist. She was allegedly also featured in a few Tyler Perry films, but I’ve yet to come across any proof of these.
  Name: Bethany Jacobs, née Harrison Placed: 11th Age: 36 (Going 37 this Nov 20th) First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: N/A Instagram Followers: N/A Bethany Harrison on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 2 On Cycle 2, she was the most well-endowed model out of the ten girls, but her heavy chest was not the reason why Bethany was the second to go home from the show. Her photos were strong, but her performance in front of the camera didn’t impress the judges as the competition progressed. The judges felt that Bethany lacked the versatility that all models need in order to succeed in the fashion industry. Furthermore, she was criticized for not being able to look ‘high fashion’ enough in her photos.
  POST-TOP MODEL After the show, Bethany has remained relatively mum. She was featured in Totally Texas Calendar, but that seems to be the end of her modeling career. Her facebook says that she was the former Event Director the Good Company Armadillo Palace in Houston, Texas from 2007 until 2016. The ANTM Cycle 2 wikipedia states that she was married, however, I believe that the relationship the page is referring MAY have ended. There are photos on her facebook which show that that she was recently married to Chris Jacob in 2016, and by the time this is posted, she must’ve given birth to their first child together (her facebook lists her as 7 months and 1 week pregnant as of September 2017). EDIT: Bethany has given birth to twin girls.
  Name: Heather McClure, née Blumberg Placed: 10th Age: 32 First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: 3 (@BlumbergHeather) ← Not totally sure if this twitter is hers (and just abandoned) Instagram Followers: 186 (@_heather24) Heather Blumberg on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 2 When Heather became a finalist on America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 2, she was known for her upbeat personality and perky behavior. Even though she had such a likeable personality, Heather had a hard time becoming friends with the other girls and often felt like an outcast. Even though Heather maintained strong performance, she became the third contestant to be eliminated from the show. The judges really felt Heather looked too much like a teenager to have a professional career in the industry.
  POST-TOP MODEL And I thought Bethany was off the grid. Heather was even more difficult to find on social media. It seems that she has abandoned modeling and is working as a full time Nurse. Since the show, she has gotten married and now goes by Heather McClure. Her husband, Jeff McClure, is a realtor in California. They have no children yet, however, they own a yorkshire who goes by the name Princess Fiona. Not much is known about Heather post-Top Model, though her last instagram update shows that she has had lash extensions.
  Name: Jenascia Carter, née Chakos Placed: 9th Age: 35 First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 2 Twitter Followers: 1304 (@Jenascia) Instagram Followers: 1617 (@jenas1a) Jenascia Chakos on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 2 Standing 5 feet, 7 inches, Jenascia was the shortest among the 12 Finalists in America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 2. For the first photo, Jenascia arrived three hours late because the other models did not wake her up when it was time to leave. She felt betrayed by all of them, especially by fellow Top Model finalist, April, whom she had helped the day before. She was not eliminated for being tardy, but was cut out off the show on the fourth week after failing to compensate for her lack of height.
  POST-TOP MODEL After the show, Jenascia returned to her job at Hooters and gave birth to a child in 2007. She has appeared in a few Seattle calendars and taken some test shots. She appeared in the Feb 2009 issue of DList Magazine. In January of 2010, Jenascia appeared as a contestant on Wheel of Fortune, where she won just under $50,000. In 2013, she was featured as a stylist in a BTS video of DList magazine shoot starring Cycle 23 winner, India Gants. In the same year, she also modeled for the Spring 2013 collection of the Rich Kids Brand. Nowadays, she works as an esthetician in SET, a Seattle based Waxing Salon, where she is known as The Vagine Queen of Seattle. She has also worked as a Fashion Director for DList Magazine from 2009 up until 2013. She married her boyfriend, Evan Lee Carter, in July 2017. She is also raising her child, TJ, from a previous relationship. She also has a cat named Tiiva and a dog named Bernice.
  Name: Xiomara Cuber, née Frans Placed: 8th Age: 39 First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 2 Twitter Followers: 209 (@xiomiofficial) Instagram Followers: N/A Xiomara Frans on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 2 As a finalist for America’s Next Top Model Cycle 2, Xiomara showed a lot of potential during the first few challenges in the show, but come the fifth week, was eliminated when her photos from the underwater photo shoot failed to impress the judges. Her walk was also criticized, having done so with her eyes unconventionally “bugging out.” Despite not being able to captivate the judges for a long time, her great personality and kindness won the hearts of the other girls in the finals.
  POST-TOP MODEL After her stint on ANTM, Xiomara (who goes by the name Xiomi these days) signed with New York’s Boss Model Management and has modeled for the likes of Carmen Marc Valvo, Terani Couture, and has also appeared in the New York Post Latino Issue, the 5th issue of TDInk Magazine, Lucier Magazine, as well as grace the cover and pages in the May/Jun 2016 issue of STS Luxury Style Magazine. She has appeared in the 2017 horror film Terrifier and will appear in the film Rounded in 2018.
  She chose to put a pause on her modeling career to focus on school. After obtaining her degree, the New Jersey native is currently pursuing her Masters’ Degree as a Nurse Practitioner and also works alongside her husband, Dr. Shain Cuber, one of NY/NJ’s busiest plastic surgeons. Xiomi has worked as an aesthetic and dermatologic nurse, and it was then that she realized that she wanted to concentrate on coaching women in order to achieve their best self from the inside out. She has a website, which focus on beauty, health, lifestyle, and wellness. “The website is based around me giving advice to women about different things. It incorporates both my clinical and beauty expertise; so you get the health tips and resources, as well as beauty tips, because I have the qualifications,” says Xiomara, “For me, it is important to be authentic because there are some others that claim to be health and beauty experts, but don’t really have the credentials. I’d like to be a resource for these women that wouldn’t go online and search for evidence based research articles, or have the time to read books on health, nutrition, beauty and wellness.”
  Name: Catie Anderson Placed: 7th Age: 32 First Call Outs: 1 Bottom 2: 2 Twitter Followers: N/A Instagram Followers: N/A Catie Anderson on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 2 As a finalist for America’s Next Top Model Cycle 2, many people thought that Catie would become the second winner of the show, but she ended up being the sixth contestant eliminated because she failed to produce a good black and white photograph. In addition, her emotional instability served as a hindrance to her growth.
  POST-TOP MODEL Catie is another one of those girls who have kept a relatively low online profile since the show ended in 2004. After appearing on the show, Catie has gone on to walk the runway in fashion shows like Alan Del Rosario (2007), Louis Verdad (2004), and California Market Center’s Direction (Spring 2005), L.A. Bikini Show (2005), Yves Castaldi (2008), Alan Del Rosario’s Bow and Arrow (Fall 2008). She has graced the pages of Fugue, Edge Magazine, the October 2011 issue of American Vogue. She has modeled for Yves Castaldi, Two Ten Ten Five Clothing, Oggi Jeans, and BU Trends. She also played a minor character in The Bold and the Beautiful and guest-appeared on one episode of the series, Eve. Catie has been signed with New York Model Management (NYM2 division) and L.A. Models (runway division). She has also been represented by Robbyn Navatto Talent & Model Management.

  ANTM CYCLE 2 As a finalist for America’s Next Top Model Cycle 2, she was the quiet girl of the group, occasionally seeing a goofy shine, but was dismissed seventh for being too sexy for the fashion industry. She was turned blonde in her makeover and only made it to the “Shake Ya Body” music video.
  POST-TOP MODEL After cycle 2, signed with TBM Models, APM Models and Mensa Management, has done print work for L'Oréa, Converse, The New York Post, Pulse, Cosmopolitan, Supermodels Unlimited, King, Maxim, American Salon, Rachel Ray Magazine, DList Magazine, WhyNot Magazine, and Alize.

  Name: Camille McDonald Placed: 6th (Cycle 2)/11th (Cycle 17) Age: 40 (Going 41 on Nov 26th) First Call Outs: 1 (Cycle 2)/ 0 (Cycle 17) Bottom 2: 3 (Cycle 2)/ 1 (Cycle 17) Twitter Followers: 6,915 (@camillemcdonald) Instagram Followers: 6,882 (@camillemcdonald) Camille McDonald on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 2 As a finalist on Cycle 2, Camille was not exactly well-liked by the other girls in the Top 12. Both Yoanna and Bethany confronted her because of her bad attitude, and even the judges grew increasingly tired of her arrogant behavior. Before she was eliminated from the show on the eighth week, she and Yoanna patched up their differences, but when Camille hinted to the judges about Yoanna’s eating disorder, Camille and Yoanna’s friendship quickly dissolved. Camille McDonald is known for the quote “This is my signature walk and this is what’s going to make me famous”, which she said during their go-sees in Milan. Camille was invited back in 2011 to participate in the All-Star cycle.
  ANTM CYCLE 17 During All Stars, Camille got a weird edit. She was given the “Older Model” edit. Leading up to their elimination, when the girls would receive care packages from home, Camille’s mail was mostly bills. She was eliminated during the 4th week, after the Express photo shoot, due to a weak photo.
  POST-TOP MODEL Camille later moved to Europe and signed with the prominent Modeling Agency Major Model Management (Milan), shooting editorials, signature walking down runways for designers such as Escada, Caroline Hedaya, Bikini Under The Bridge, Zam Barett, Victor Hou, Korto Momolu, Ice Blue, Byron Lars, and lingerie giant Wolfords of London to name a few.
  After returning to the United States, Camille began working with Major Model Management (New York), where she continued to secure runway shows, print ads, billboard campaigns and magazine layouts ranging from Azure Denim to D-Squared as well as been a Fit-Model for Marithe Francois Girbaud. Camille has shot for publications such as Elemental Magazine, Smooth Magazine, Ocean Style, Glamour Magazine, Women Wear Daily (WWD), Juicy Magazine, Heed Magazine, Black Men Magazine, Skirt Magazine, and W Magazine. She has also been on the covers of Harlem Magazine, Fashion 500, Where Itz At, Who’s Hot, Complete Hairstyles, Batchelor’s Magazine.
  Camille has also modeled for brands and designers such as Bikini Under The Bridge, Kimi Wear, Alador & Smith, Sukari New York, Geneviève Aiyana, Facto Lifestyle, and Nicka K New York.
  Camille’s most memorable internship has been with fashion guru Diane Von Furstenberg (DVF) where she learned a great deal about marketing. She also launched her own line of lingerie called Lingerwear, for which Naima Mora has modeled. Sometime after the show, she found Signature Walk Inc. In August 2014, she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Kennedy.
  Name: April Wilkner Placed: 4th Age: 37 First Call Outs: 1 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: 1,833 (@APRILWILKNER) Instagram Followers: 5,429 (@aprilwilkner) April Wilkner on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 2 She quickly became one of the 12 Finalists, but during the fashion show on the first week, April accidentally wore the wrong dress. Jenascia, another Finalist, was quick to rescue her. However, the following day, April failed to wake Jenascia up for their first photo shoot, causing their relationship to sour for awhile. She was eliminated on the ninth week because the judges thought she was too robotic and self-critical.
  POST-TOP MODEL Since appearing on the show, April has worked with NY Models Management and has modeled for New Look and the July 2004 edition of Stuff Magazine, MAMi. She has also appeared on the catwalk for Loungewear Betty for San Francisco Fashion Week 2004, ELLEGirl Presents: Olympus Fashion Week, Pnina Tornai (Spring 2009), ElleGirl Presents: Dare To Be You, Wal-Mart Meets America’s Next Top Models 2005.

  Name: Shandi Sullivan Placed: 3rd Age: 35 First Call Outs: 3 Bottom 2: 2 Twitter Followers: 74 (@ShandiSullivan) Instagram Followers: 1,810 (@shanthraxtothemax) Shandi Sullivan on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 2 As a finalist on the second season of the show, Shandi’s warm and kind personality gained the approval of not just her fellow finalists, but the viewers as well. She started off as one of the weakest models in the bunch, but gradually worked her way up to the Top 3. Her popularity intensified when she passed out due to her low blood sugar level during the third week. She is not without mistakes, however, as she slept with an Italian boy during a photo shoot in Milan. Shandi came clean to her boyfriend about her infidelity, but the guilt and emotional burden were enough to spoil her performance, and on the tenth week, she was eliminated from the competition.
  POST-TOP MODEL Since appearing on the show, Shandi reportedly has gone back to working as a DJ in New York. Shandi was signed with Trump Model Management but has left the industry. She has taken test shots and done some print work. She appeared in the April 2007 issue of Cover Magazine with fellow cycle 2 model, April Wilkner. She has also been featured in Nigel Barker’s Beauty Equation. In 2009, she appeared in a documentary called Best Worst Movie.
  The Tyra Banks show held the first (and only) Fiercee Awards for moments from ANTM’s first nine seasons. Shandi was nominated for craziest phone call and ugliest cry but lost both. She later won the award for the Most Dramatic Change.
  Shandi has modeled for different brands and designers such as Donna L’oren, Fred Flare, Arrojo Studio, DDRej, and Debora Francis. She has walked the runway for designers such as Lily Samii (San Francisco Fashion Week 2004), Gen Art New York (Spring 2005), and ELLEGirl Presents: Dare To Be You. These days, she manages Kennaland, a hair salon based in Manhattan. She also worked as a DJ in the early 2000s (post-ANTM), but I don’t think she does so anymore. TBH there isn’t much on her instagram about her personal life (except her boyfriend).

2017.11.03 08:54 FeelMyOats ANTM - Where Are They Now? (Cycle 1)

Hi guys! So I was on the /rupaulsdragrace sub and I got so inspired by u/evilsnowcookie's "Where Are They Now" post that I decided to incorporate that idea for ANTM
  So this will be a compilation of the different websites and news articles, as well as posts from the girls' social media accounts on what they are up to these days. Maybe if you guys enjoy this, I'd consider making one for the succeeding seasons but for now, lets reminisce on the girls from Cycle 1.
 
  Name: Tessa Carlson Placed: 10th Age: 33 First Call Outs: 0 Bottom 2: 1 Twitter Followers: N/A Instagram Followers: 521 (@tessacarlson) Tessa Carlson on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 1 Tessa was a contestant on the first season of America’s Next Top Model. She, along with fellow model Giselle, were the only models of the cycle who were not part of the pool of 20 semi-finalists (they were scouted for and joined the cast after a separate audition). During her brief stint on the show, she was shown to bond with fellow contestant Adrianne Curry through smoking after moving into their NYC Apartment. At their first photo shoot for swimsuits from J.Lo by Jennifer Lopez, photographer Elizabeth Moss commented that “She probably had people teach her how to model the wrong way … that was her problem.” In the end, she was eliminated for lacking a dominant personality and her inability to pose.
  POST-TOP MODEL After the show, Tessa modeled for Noah Kalina and Joey Quintero, but has since decided not to pursue modelling.

  ANTM CYCLE 1 When Ebony became one of the finalists in America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 1, she was met with harsh criticism from the two very devout Christian ANTM finalists, Robin and Shannon. The conflict escalated when Ebony’s partner dropped by the house, further angering Shannon and Robin. Things turned uglier for Ebony during the judging, as she became the fourth contestant eliminated. The judges reasoned that it was Ebony’s weak performance that drove them to cut her from the show.

  POST-TOP MODEL After the show, Ebony was signed onto Downtown Model Management, before moving on to Uptown Model Management (UMM) and Models Management Group (MMG). Currently, I’m not sure what agency she is signed to. She has walked in fashion shows for SA-SHEA and Ice Blue.

She has also appeared in appeared in Real Gay (a 2005 TV film) and Violet Tendencies (A 2010 movie). According to her instagram, she has shot her first sports shoot/TV show.

  ANTM CYCLE 1 Giselle was a contestant on the first season of America’s Next Top Model. She, along with fellow model Tessa, were the only models of the cycle who were not part of the pool of 20 semi-finalists (they were scouted for and joined the cast after a separate audition).During the fifth week of Cycle 1, both Giselle and fellow finalist Ebony fell into the bottom 2. Giselle was spared as Ebony was sent home, but her performance the following week betrayed her lack of confidence. Her photos with 2003 NFL Rookie of the Year Clinton Portis were not impressive enough to convince the judges to keep her, and so she became the fifth finalist to be cut from the show. Tyra said it was her lack of confidence that hindered her performance. Source
  POST-TOP MODEL After her season aired, Giselle appeared in SWITCH magazine and modeled for the brand Simply Fashion. Giselle was also a model on Deal or No Deal, has hosted segments on the Tyra Banks Show, Fox Sport's Net's "54321", and has appeared on TV shows such as Chuck, The Bold and The Beautiful, the short “Black?”, and has attended The 18th Annual Soul Train Music Awards.

  ANTM CYCLE 1 During the sixth week, the show flew Kesse and the other remaining Top Model finalists to Paris, where they were asked to pose with a male model wearing only lingerie. The challenge allowed a number of Parisian designers to view the models, and although all of them tried their best to produce spectacular pictures, the judges felt that Kesse did not possess enough desire to advance in the competition. Consequently, Kesse became the sixth finalist to be eliminated. Source
  POST-TOP MODEL As of late, Kesse has been keeping a relatively low profile. Since appearing on the show, Kesse has gone on to work under the management of Gilla Roos (but closed in 2009). Her runway projects include Yeohlee Teng Fall 2005/Spring 2006, Renee Larc for Milan and Francis Hendy.

  ANTM CYCLE 1 Being a Devout Christian like her fellow finalist Shannon Stewart, Robin often criticized the other girls when she felt that they were doing something immoral. She was extremely affected when openly gay model Ebony brought her partner to the house. On the seventh week, the challenge was to pose nude for a jewelry advertisement. She, along with Shannon, refused to participate, saying that it was against her morals. Consequently, she was eliminated from the show, becoming the seventh contestant to be cut. Source
  POST-TOP MODEL Robin, who now goes by the name Robbyne, has kept a relatively low profile since the show. She was the only contestant whose photos were not included in the Stuff Magazine shoot featured during the third episode (even though Tessa, the first contestant eliminated, was included in the issue). After her appearance on the show, Robin went on to do a Baby Phat fashion show with Elyse and Kesse. She was featured in the July 2003 issue of the TV Guide, on the cover of the 2003 Holiday Issue of Grace, as well as appear next to Janice Dickinson in an issue of O.

She did some church-related print work and some test shots, as well as a pictorial for Especially Yours, but is not currently with an agency. Robin’s name was once again brought to the attention in the media in 2014 when Dominic Jeffries (together with his 6 year old sister) went missing from Manning’s home. Robin is the child’s legal guardian, but it is not certain why (Dominic’s mother and Robin know each other from pre-school).
  Name: Elyse Sewell Placed: 3rd Age: 35 First Call Outs: 2 Bottom 2: 2 Twitter Followers: N/A Instagram Followers: 1,031 (@_elysesewell) Elyse Sewell on IMDB
  ANTM CYCLE 1 Sewell's was a contestant on the first cycle of America's Next Top Model. She was known on the show as the "edgy pre-med student". She placed third, after Adrianne Curry and Shannon Stewart. She was eliminated due to the fact that her intelligence came across as “derogatory”, despite her high fashion look. Her infamous confessional clip from the show, in which she expressed a profanity-laden rant against the people on the show, earned her 16th place on E!'s Most Outrageous TV Moments in 2005. She attributes this outburst to the unusual requirement on the show to voice one's private thoughts and to soliloquize in a "confessional booth".
  POST-TOP MODEL Elyse is probably the most successful girl out of all the contestants on Cycle 1. As a model, Elyse has been incredibly successful, especially in Asia where she has had print advertisements for Giordano, Chanel and Chow Sang Sang Jewelry and appeared on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Hong Kong. Sewell’s first book, Beauty and The Biz: The International Adventures of America's Third-to-Next Top Model, based in part on her LiveJournal Weblog, was published in Hong Kong in 2006. She appeared in multiple book signings across Hong Kong. She has been featured in advertisements for brands such as Azona, Chow Sang Sang, Dao, Darquer, DTC Diamonds, Flair by Joc, Giordano, iMaroon, Mae Von, Motorola, Paule Ka, Sa Sa CyberColors, and Staccato.
  Overseas, Elyse has been signed with Zucca Tokyo, ZEM Osaka, Mannequin Singapore, Model Genesis Hong Kong, Chadwicks Sydney, Eye For I Milan, Dream Models Hong Kong and Elite Santiago. Locally, Elyse has also been signed with Wilhelmina West Models, M4 Models, Q6 Models Portland, Model One (Hong Kong), Studio KLRP Paris, Seattle’s Model Guild, M4 Hamburg, Good Fashion Shenzhen and Model 1.
  Elyse dated Martin Crandall of the Shins until January 2008, when he allegedly assaulted her in a Sacramento hotel. Both Crandall and Elyse were charged with felony domestic assault, though their cases were later dismissed. Previously, Elyse told the Singapore Straits Times in an interview that she had dumped her boyfriend because he cheated on her while she was working in Japan, though they reconciled shortly afterwards. She’s not active on social media, and only has an instagram (which was last updated in 2015). A facebook page pops up if you search her name on facebook, however, I’m not sure if she runs it or if it is a fan account. She also participated in a Reddit AMA where she spoke about her experiences on the show.

  ANTM CYCLE 1 Stewart competed on the first season of America's Next Top Model. In the first week of competition, Shannon landed in the bottom two and if she hadn't won that week's challenge, she would have been eliminated.

But, in the semi-finals during a nude photoshoot in Paris, Shannon and fellow contestant Robin Manning caused controversy when they refused to take part in the photoshoot because of their Christian faith. However, this did not hinder Stewart's progression in the competition finishing second overall to Adrianne Curry. Source.

Stewart placed 6th overall in the All-Star competition after confusing the judges for refusing to wear lingerie that looked like a bathing suit while allowing herself to be photographed in a skimpier bathing suit in a previous week. She was the only model in the top 6 to have not won best photo.

Questions Answers
What the the funniest scene to film in Zombeavers? What was the most difficult/physically challenging? and what was the grossest/bloodiest? I think i can almost answer this question all in one! haha. the funniest scene//grossest (for rachel at least) was the scene when i turn into the Zombeaver... and crawl on top of "Mary" played by Rachel Melvin. The drool shown in that scene is real everyone ahhaahah bc of the beaver teeth glued in my mouth it was impossible to swallow my spit... so it ended up falling out all over Rachel while i was on top of her...
It was disgusting.. and absolutely hilarious... well for everyone besides Rachel. hahahahahahahahha she almost puked multiple times.
And the most physically challenging scene was when I was again when I was the Zombeaver... and where i was having to flap my beaver tale on the ground... it was no easy to get that thing to move... and i definitely got a good leg work out in that night! LOL.
I have another "gross/bloodiest" scene i want to mention... but i don't want to spoil it for those who haven't scene it!!! i'm sure once you watch you will know which one i'm talking about. hint: poor Sam. (Hutch Dano)
I'm not a big fan of any scary types of movies so Zombeaver probably isn't for me. But I can't wait for Ted 2!!! A few questions. Zombeavers isn't JUST scary... its hilarious... sexy... and fun!!! its for you...trust me! i have beaver experience.
Which actoactress would you absolutely love to work with? What's the weirdest experience you've had with with a fan? Will Ferrell. I'm obsessed... and if ... now i mean WHEN i work with him... i can start digging my grave ;) i've had lots of weird experiences... depends what you would consider weird for me to elaborate ha.
How did you transition from Pageants to Acting? Keep up the good work and best of luck!! I competed in pageants to begin with bc i wanted to move from IL to LA or NYC. and if u win Miss Teen USA u get to go to the New York Film Academy... so thats why pageants sparked my interest in the beginning. I always knew i wanted to act... just didn't know where to start coming from a small town in IL... so thats how i ended up getting involved and starting my career lol.
What made you decide to get into the pageant scene? Did you want to do anything else before? If you didn't become an actor, what would you have wanted to become? Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions! I wanted to be able to move to NY or LA... but my parents wouldn't let me move out until i was of age... but I found out if you win Miss Teen USA you get to go to the New York Film Academy... so i figured that was my way out;)
So thats where my interested stemmed from! I have always known i've wanted to be an actress :) :) :)
My mom also competed in Pageants... the same pageant actually.. which is also how I even knew of them to begin with lol.
Did you have different career aspirations as a kid? Growing up i literally wanted to be EVERYTHING.. which u can imagine was very confusing. I was a dancer all my life, in basically every sport imaginable, and everyday had a new interest (my poor parents) thank god for acting..i'm able to tap into all those people and aspirations that live inside me & can now make a career out of it lol!
What's your all time favorite cartoon and why? Family Guy. 100% for multiple reasons! i grew up watching it bc my family is obsessed with the show and our family "get togethers" consisted of simply watching FG... theres 6 of us in my fam so we all even have our own characters (I'm Bryan). LOL.
I alsooo loved spongebob,the fairly oddparents, Dexters laboratory & south park
Are you a Bears fan? I'd so, what's your thoughts on the recent changes to the team and coaching staff? Honestly...i'm not a big enough fan to know about the changes in team and coaching staff... but i'm one of those fans that says i'm a fan and goes to games to say i'm going to the game bc I'm a fan...
Kill me right. I'm embarrassing i know. my fams SUPER into sports... i think that gene missed me...
How does it feel to have the same last name as Ja Rule? I literally just goggled Ja Rule's name...Atkins... thats awesome! i didn't even know that...haha i love you for this question! now i feel super awesome and that i should start working on my rap career bc i obviously have great street cred in the fam
I have not watched Zombeavers, but I saw it available and put it in my queue on Netflix. You have been in other things, what got you first interested in the film (zombeavers), and have you given up on the "Miss" pageants/modelling type career? Well i can no longer compete in the USA pageant organization because I have already held titles... so yes i'm done in the pageant world... But i'm still modeling! I'm w/ Wilhelmina Modeling Agency here in LA.
But Zombeavers was actually one of the 3rd or 4th auditions i ever went out on once i signed with my Management here in LA!

She's so talented and is one of my good friends. i'm obsessed with her Jewelry Line bagatiba!!! if you haven't checked it out you should! also she's an amazing DJ... is there anything she can't do?
What was your favorite moment on set while filming zombeavers? also, you were my favorite character!! Awww thank you! I loved playing Jenn! My favorite moment was probably the scene were I actually turn into the beaver and crawl onto "Mary" who is played by Rachel Melvin...
The drool... was real..poor rachel.
What was it like working with Jennifer Lopez??? It was so much fun... but my arms were filled with bruises after we were done filming because i had to keep pinching myself ;) i <3 jenny from the block.

2015.02.06 18:47 The_Ewe_Pilgrim I just signed with an agency and have some questions about modeling.

Hi! I am a 22 year old female, 5' 6.5" with Filipina-German heritage. I had a really awkward time growing up, and would never have in a million years considered a career in modeling. A couple of weeks ago, my boss's cousin referred me to her modeling agency here in Boston. She has since moved to NYC to be represented by Wilhelmina there (!!!), but after attending my interview with her agent, they decided to sign me! I consider myself incredibly lucky.
I have never, ever, in any capacity modeled before. I have taken photos for my family or for friends, but remain kind of awkward in front of the camera. I do have a DSLR I can practice with, but what are some tips to start getting comfortable in front of the lens?
The agency has discouraged me from paying for a test shoot until a couple of weeks pass - they're giving my info out to potential photographers to see if perhaps I can get a trade-for-print (I think that's what he called it?) booking without having to shell out cash. How can I prepare in the meantime so that the test shoot is successful?
Considering my height and my look, I think I have an exotic but definitely girl-next-door style. What sorts of outfits, poses, scenes should I be enacting to best build my portfolio for commercial modeling?
I am the sort of person who truly dedicates herself to all endeavors she embarks upon, so I would love to become well-versed in this field! Thank you so much in advance for your advice and guidance!

Questions Answers
Seems like you listed quite a few cons there. What are the pro's of your profession? And if you were to consider another career, which one would it be? I really want to go to school for behavorial science, but Im keeping my options open. The pros are definitely travel and money. And dem male models.
How many of those are straight? enough for it to be a reliable dating demographic? All of them are straight. Well, not all, but most.
What tips would you give someone on sneaking into the high profile fashion shows? Carry a clipboard, look security in the eye and smile. If they ask for you badge, say you left it with a model. Give a models name, they'll never track her down. This only works backstage, so get through there. As soon as you're in, pursed lips, look frazzled and stressed and speewalk to wherever you need to go. And don't be embarrassed by your question :)
Just letting you know that I think you're fierce near the end of september I read on a fashion blog about someone meeting you after the prada SS 2012 show and that you have only started modelling for a few weeks and you had quite the touching story and this person took you out for pizza. I feel creepy for mentioning that but just thought I'd let you know that I think it's great you're getting work! meanest model you have met? Meanest? I'll never say her name, but, as you know, I'm new to the industry. I introduced myself to her and asked her her name. She was disgusted with me that I did not know her name. It was brutal.
Also favorite designers? :) Favorite designer? Varies completely. To see the art, alexander McQueen. To wear myself? I love Neil Barrett.
I was kind of sad that I didn't see you walking in this season's Prada show after being an exclusive last season. Didn't Miuccia say that you were "a part of the family"? I got crazy ridiculous crocodile lady excema, which I'm just getting over now. Doing the AMA is helping me not scratch!!! I have no idea what my career looks like until this clears up.
As for my question, since you're from Toronto (as am I), know any good places to eat? I'm tired of the places that I frequent and need a new place to get some food. Oh, and will you be walking in Toronto Fashion Week? As for food, the best Chinese in town is Kum Jug on spadina, (don't know it's real name, just ask around, someone will point you)
Up voted for Kum Jug. It's a real place! I swear!
No Fressen?? I've never actually been to fressen. For my birthday, my ex said he would either take me to fressen or get me a guinea pig. I named her Jude.
What would you say to all the girls (and potentially guys) out there who struggle with body image? To the ones who develop eating disorders to look the way you do? Have you ever had an eating disorder? You can always tell when someone is healthy. If you eat as healthy as you can, people notice. I can think of two people off the too of my head, exactly the same size in skinniness. One looks like she's on her death bed, the other glows and you know she eats well. As a health food kid, and the daughter of someone who always taught me the importance of working out, I can't imagine a life without eating the way I eat. Another thing, most people IN THE INDUSTRY, including the clients are disgusted with the eating disorders of the models. I get told all the time how happy they are to see someone who isn't scary skinny. I've also sometimes been booked over these girls. Skinny does not mean the best in this industry. I've also seen an agency tell a girl to gain weight. And no, I've never had an eating disorder, but I watched my best friend struggle from grade five to eleven with bulemia/anorexia before she got better, so I can spot it pretty well.
I didn't know he had a show! Okay another question...last one I promise! Around what age do you models typically get out of the business? 26/27 but I've seen them work into their 40's.
How logical/feasible would it be to either hire a personal assistant to keep track of the traveling arrangements or at least have a manager? My agent is my manager. And totallyfuckingnessesary. They do all the things like negotiate payment, booking me jobs, picking and choosing what castings I go to, coordinating with agents in other cities to hammer out when I fly, what jobs are more important than others, the things the do is mind blowing.
How long of breaks do you get in between jobs? In between jobs? Depends on the model and the season. Fashion week as a popular model? Good luck getting more than 4 hours of sleep a night. Max. (not from experience THANKGOD) but during the slower seasons for run of the mill models, could be a day, could be three weeks.
What are your plans on how to keep a relationship going? My boyfriend and I are only "seeing" each other when I'm in Toronto, otherwise, he can sleep with anyone, and I can sleep with anyone. I've been away constantly for 3 months, and haven't slept with him in 6, so having an open relationship is a must.
For your roommate: How does the male model industry compare to what the women have to go through? He is asleep now, but I can answer that by saying money. Men get paid much much much less, but they also have more downtime to enjoy the perks of the job, plus they don't get judged for partaking in them. (partying, copious amounts of sex, drugs, free drinks) although he's a pretty awesome guy. Yoga teacher hippie. Doesn't really do those kinds of things.
Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party of the United States? Not that I'm aware of, but I could have and then had my memory erased.
Do you know any ex-models now working in a completely unrelated field? Good question bra, Cant answer the first one, only ex models I know still dabble in modeling for the extra moolah.
If so, how'd they turn out? Sexiest thing? Probably the models undressing or getting full body makeup rubbed all over them, depending on whose doing the rubbing of course.
Also, if an invisible dude hung around a modelling show for a whole day with total access to every room, what's the sexiest thing he'd see and what's the most disgusting? Most disgusting? Everyone crowded around a table after the show trying to dye their eyebrows back to a normal colour.
I don't understand the eyebrows bit - what happens to their eyebrows during a show? Bleached to make a blank canvas.
Oh wow, that's crazy! Do they fall out after a lot of bleaching? Surprisingly not yet, will report back when they do.
Have you been offered money or may be a job or a gig for sex? Never been offered money for sex or a job.
American here, what the ever loving fuck is a Bloor and Dufferin? Hahaha an intersection. Not the skeeziest in Toronto, but, for some reason, the place I've been propositioned the most.
Is it true, what BNL say, that the intersection of Jane and St. Clair is the most beautiful intersection in Toronto (or something like that)? No, they LIED. But they were right about the west end being awesome.
Do you ever think a designer who you have to wear is completely insane and you think what you are wearing is ridiculous? My favorite thing? When I was doing looks for prada and they draped me in this peach cape. I was surprised I liked it, because It was very feminine, something I don't usually like.
Most ridiculous thing you have ever wore? Most ridiculous?
Your favorite thing you have ever wore? Hair extensions down to my ass, no shirt, tropical flowers in my hair and multicolored skinny jeans.
Do you think shows like "America's Next Top Model" help or hurt mainstream views of what 'modelling' really is like? Ohhhhhh, definatly hurt. It's like people knowing all about teachers watching "The Magic School Bus" or knowing about being a waitress at a shitty coffee place in NYC by watching "Freinds" ; it's going to look a lot easier than it is.
What's the ideal gig for a model? Campaign for sure. High profile, high paying. Bonus points for a perfume campaign by a well known brand.
What's a campaign? Like being the model for some perfume or brand of clothes or something? Appearing in an advertisement for a specific brand or product. It pays well because of usage fees.
I think I have some more. Do you see any other ethnicities in your line of work? Or is it generally mainly Caucasians? Mainly Caucasian. Unfourtunatly, I feel like the women of different ethnicities are hired so they seem more diverse in their tastes, not because their tastes are truly diverse. Not something I agree with of course, just something I notice.
How long did you train for the catwalk/other skills necessary to model? Hence my poor performance on my first runway and the look of sheer terror.
Oh man. Brave soul. o: How long did it take for you to become accustomed to the work and runways? Im still a little nervous each time. Getting easier though.
A RUNWAY, THANK YOU! I know this word, why I used every other word to describe it boggles me. Also, I'm sorry for your embarrassment. Now im wondering if a model has too many fails on the runway, does that severely affect her chances of being hired? I can't really think of any girl who has fallen many times. Even the greats take a spill sometimes though. I know Jessica Stam has at least one tumble under her belt.
I know you haven't done a ton of shoots and don't have a bunch of model friends...BUT for lingerie/swim/nudes does the photog/agent tell you what to do with the lady bush? or is that usually left to the girl's personal preference? It's common curtesy to always keep everything groomed, from nails, to armpits, to lady bushes.
Who is your favorite photographer to work with (personality wise) Can you show us your favorite image shot of you? Personality wise? My dad. Favorite picture of me? this one
Well... uhhh.... what exactly IS so hard about it? (no offense) The hours, the loneliness, the pressure. The age at which so many girls are and the very adult descisions they have to make. The pressure about your figure. Half are saying too skinny, half are saying too fat. The judgement from other people regarding your profession. The idea that we have a simple job, when there is more to it. It's not nessecarily how hard it is, it's how everyone sees it as the easiest job in the world.
Wouldn't wearing a fur coat in 30 degree weather be nice? I think we're working off different temperature systems here.
Oh, Canada! God I could go for a Timmy's right now.
Http://www.timhortons.com/us/locatolocations.html?q_loc=10001. I'm in Milan. Haven't been to North America in 3 months.
do you mean a "real" one North of the border? Please send Timmy's.
LOL, you're in Milan and lamenting not having Timmy's? I'm in SoCal, so nowhere near one, but if I could send you some, what would you want? SoCal? I would love a large French vanilla please. Or a medium double double.
Do you know any plus size models? I want to get into that but I'm scared to start? any advice? I don't know any plus size models personally, but I have heard good things about Wilhelmina in NYC! Good luck!
Since you're from Toronto, anything there? I think Elmer might have a plus size division, I would do some snooping.
OK, another question? Ever been totally starstruck in the presence of another model? If yes, who? I don't really know models, even now. But I do remember the day someone told me that woman I had been working with was THE Muccia Prada. Suddenly had to do a brain scan to see if I said anything or did anything ever. It's actually a common problem with me. I don't think you'll know who Russel Marsh is, but he's a very top notch casting director, and I didn't understand his influence so I kid around with him and told him he looked like Michael Cane. Got the job anyways.
What's the most awesomest swag you have scored during the fashion week? I know a lot of designers tend to give a goodies in lieu of cash payment, how do you feel about it? I worked mostly for one company who didn't give things away, but the best was this place called modellounge in NYC at union square. Free magazines, full use of laptops, water, snacks, a place to hang out inbetween castings. Amazing. So nice since I lived up at 49th and 3rd.
You've already mentioned that most models get scouted, but is there anything else one can do to 'break into' the industry, like directly contacting a modeling agency? Or should one just walk around wearing the hippest clothes? You can definatly walk into a modeling agency. I got scouted, then truned down many times by one agency, so I walked into another one. So i was a half half.
How many fees does the agency take out of your paycheck? Also does every agency you are signed to get a cut of the money you make off of a job? The agency takes a percentage, depending on the country theyre from. And the agency that books me gets the cut, and my mother agency receives 10 percent of that. Or so I'm told.
How much is your dignity worth? Like getting undressed ?? Well I haven't done nudes yet, and as I mentioned before, if there was a serious shoot, with artistic potential, I would talk it over with my dad first and get his opinion. If at any time I changed my mind and felt uncomfortable, I would speak up. Also, I don't know why people are down voting. Legitimate question. I have a friend who has done French playboy, and the pictures are beautiful. I fully support her decision to do it.
How's the food usually backstage? It depends. One story though, which you reminded me of, more of a rant to be honest. So most models eat healthy so they don't HAVE to succumb to eating disorders. I would rather eat tons of healthy food and feel great then eat a little junk food and feel terrible. Logic. I should also note that the vast majority of models are vegetarian. Anyways, some genius decides to order about 20 pepperoni pizzas. We all looked like dipshits because we're not eating pizza like "anorexic models" when a pizza is really not what we want when they're sticking us in a skintight dress to go out on the runway. The perfect food is usually wraps, fruit, veggies, COFFEE salads, chickpeas, rice, basically just good food. (the coffee is the most important.)
"COFFEE salads?" "LEMON curry?" Coffee salads would be the staple food of a model if they existed.
Have you ever been to http://fashin.livejournal.com/? Huh. No I have not. Good. Now they know I'm a nerd. Not that the buffy thing didn't tip them off.
Runway show makeup artists - do they wash their brushes/hands between girls? They dip the brushes in an alcohol solution, bust some of them dont. Freaks me out.
Also How on earth do girls keep their hair healthy after the amount of styling it goes through during fashion month? My hair thankfully doesn't get styled too much, so I can't report on that. Possibly hair masks?
So, the "Poloroids" on your model profile page. Are they really Poloroids? What's the point of having them in addition to, and separate from, your portfolio pictures? Because protfolio pictures are always always always photoshopped. Polaroids are the opposite. It lets them know what you really look like. Nessesary for shows.
I know I, myself, would never be allowed into it, because while I am average in weight, i'm only 5'5''. That being said, do you think it is the models who contribute to this system of belief; that people of average to a bit larger than average size are not beautiful enough to walk the runway? No offense taken, I think that the only reason they have to be so tiny is because, first off, the clothes are made to one size, and secondly, the advertisers, at the end of the day, are selling youth and beauty.
is it a combination of the people hiring the models, models, advertisers, ect? I don't know why we associate extreme thinness with beauty, but we do.
how do you see that problem, as a model in the industry? I don't think anyone looks down on people who are a bit larger than average, save for some girls who got to their weight through an eating disorder and have a skewed relationship with weight.
Do you look down on people who are aren't quite up to modelling standards, or do other models? I hope that answers some questions.
I have to travel quite a bit and sometimes have to attend 'society events' or parties. would it be strange for me to 'hire' a model to accompany me? If I were to approach you, how would you react to this? As a non-sexual date? Hmmm. Very doable I think, but you would have to familiarize yourself with a modeling agency, or one specific booker. I would suggest NOT taking any girls under the age of 21/22 who are a little older, know whats going on etc. expect them to turn you down thinking you want sex. Also, depending on the event, promoters might be bringing models, but I don't know how old they'd be,
Would you work nude with Terry Richardson if offered the opportunity? I have no idea. I'd probably talk it over with my dad first to be honest, get his opinion.
Quick question, how tall are you? 5'10 and a half. (apparently the half is important)
Have you met Miranda Kerr? No I have not. I hear she's a total sweetheart though. My roommate loves her for her yoga enthusiasm.
What kind of places were you scouted in? Like walking around in the mall? Down the street, in a bookstore, my local Starbucks, just places I happen to be.
How did you get started in this? Also I like burgers. Kept getting scouted since I was 14, it kind of fell on me. Harvey's has the best veggie burgers. Especially hooker Harvey's.
Uh...I didn't know that they had recruiters...Like sports almost? Yes. Exactly. Only you look for models in the wild.
What's your impression of photographers? What sets apart good ones from bad ones? Heart. Soul, passion. The best photographers will tell me what they want, and I'll explore it, the not-so-great ones will already know the exact pose they want you to be in.
What's the money like? Pretty good. About €500 average per show and €100 for a days shoot, but the sky is the limit.
Have you seen the movie scott pilgrim vs the world? Yes. Of course. I watched them film fake winter in the Annex.
Of course I can't think of anything exciting to ask you right now. But who's your male model roomie? Lukas bossert, ladyboner winner extraordinaire.
Pics or it didn't happen. surely OP will deliver
Does he tan? how do male models stay so damn bronzed? His skin tone is actually naturally like that. Very curious to see what happens when he tans o_0.
So, how big is the drug problem in the model industry. $10k worth of cocaine a day? I can't tell you dollars, as I don't do it myself. I have no idea.
What did you like best about tokyo? I'm moving there in March. How polite everyone was, how I got free drinks everywhere I went, the low low low crime rate. Plus it's a crazy crazy city! I was only there for 3 days. Enjoy!
What is your favorite city to visit on your modeling adventures? Milan, hands down. Tokyo was a blast and a half though.
How tall are you, how much do you weigh, and what is your bust / waist / hip size? 5'10 1/2, no idea how much I weigh or what my bust/ waist / hip size is. Should be on my compmcard. Any reason, out of curiosity?
What % of models would you say are coked up psychos? I don't think I could tell you, to be honest. A lot of them. More than there should be. More than in most industries save for film and prostitution.
Is it strange to think that you're going to make lots of money just because you're tall and thin? Very surreal.
Haha, In Milan I always feel ugly and unfashionable, thanks to damn kids like you flying in from around the world and getting paid to be photographed. Passive-agressive attack on the fashion industry aside, I was wondering how much of Italy or Lombardia you have explored? For me and many Italians, Milan is really quite an average city - so this always interests me. Also, do you plan to relocate wherever your work is, or do you intend to maintain a base of sorts where you are now? I'm in porta romana, but I always kick myself that I haven't traveled Italy yet. I still haven't been to Verona, Roma, Venice, Naples, etc. I can't leave Italy with out seeing all these places! But I have no idea what my future holds at the moment. We'll see,
Madison! I barely know you, but we are facebook friends because of a guy I used to date. Anyway, I just wanted to say great AMA! Congrats on your success, I wish you all the best. I do have a question- what are you thinking when you are in front of a camera? I also feel shy and awkward- how do you make that not show up on your face? Hey! Damn, I'm trying to think now, prayer for Owen Meany reference. Hmmm. Is it through Paul? Thanks! It went a lot better than expected to be honest. As for the question, I think about the "mood " the photographer gives me. If i need to be happy, I think about being on the patio of axis with a ceasar on a summers day. If I need to be angry, honestly? I think about how pissed I am that I cant really do a good angry face. Usually turns out all right. But sometimes there are no-brainier shoots, and it's usually just normal brain function. Song lyrics, dinner plans, embarrassing memories, once, the photographer took a picture of my involuntary wince at an embarrassing memory. It was pretty funny. And for your last comment, my dad is a photographer, so I grew up around cameras. That helped a lot! Also remembering how you see yourself 10x worse than everybody else sees you. So if you think you look awesome, you probably look superfuckingawsome. Oh, the suspense is killing me! Who are you?
What kind of workout routine do you do? Personally? I used to be a cross-country runner, so I run for about an hour a day, and I'm currently trying to correct my knock-knees, so leg lifts, and occasional yoga with my roommate. I also do core workouts, depending on how my energy levels are after my run. If I don't have any energy after, it usually means I didn't eat a big enough breakfast.
Normal people: do they have any chance hitting on a model? Do you have any funny stories of people trying to attempt such endeavors? Of course, models are people, And honestly, models date more "regular people" than other models.
How much money do you get? Well some of the lesser known models make very little money, but per job? No. It means they're agent isn't very reputable. Even "average" models can easily pocket €200 for a job. Easily.
Also, some famous model, maybe Kate Moss, once said that a lot of people think models are dumb, but it's just because they don't eat, like "how smart are you going to be if you've eaten one banana in the last 24 hours?". Is that true in your experience? But in my experience, the kindest, most open, and smartest models were the top models I met.
€200 is about $300? What's that as an hourly rate? And how many of those jobs can you do in a day? About two, three if you're ambitious. But two max really,
It's hard to imagine anyone who sat in those shlumpy old couches now walking for Prada, haha! Though I can think of 5 weirder moments with Rob just off the top of my head. Did you used to work at Kaplansky's? Were you a waitress? Hahaha, I never worked at Kaplansky's. Although, now that I think about it, in the student lounge at the nook is where I got my signature short haircut that I've had ever since. Huh.
Really? I've been hearing from a lot of people that 14-16 is the time to start and 18-20 is WAY too old and you've gotta be super special to get in. Jesus, am I just hanging around a bunch of haters? Well now that more and more clients like to go with girls a bit older, no. It's not too old.
Do you think your a beautiful model compared to your model friends/co workers? There is nothing more evident to me now that beauty is so, so subjective.
Can you turn left? :) Never heard that one before. :D.
Same here! :D. After my own heart.
Describe your perfect Sunday. Wake up, hour run after a breakfast prepared by and had with my roommate, (he's an amazing cook) After my run, I would go to Arnold's coffee for a soy chai tea latte. I would then take my latte to-go and head to duomo with my tea and just sit and watch it, especially at around 3/4. The way the sun hits it as its going down is incredible. I would then come home and reddit for an hour then FaceTime with my Dad. Lukas, my roommate, would cook us dinner, and share it with me and my friends as he puts on Hans Zimmer (he recently got obsessed) while all of us eat, smoke, drink wine and talk. Then bedtimes. Boom. Perfect Sunday. EDIT: Formatting.
Ganz schön! Is that for me or my roommate?
Sie! But I don't understand German!
What's your number? 867-5309.
