Remember when we shared this post with you, about Liz Kennedy's time in Tokyo? We we recently found these pictures from an editorial she did in Japan called Emotion, in Motion. We are digging Liz's edgy look, she could fit right in with Joan Jett, and that is a big compliment. Also, we just got a pic of Liz's new editorial for Elle Vietnam, and it is amazing. Hmmmm, I think I'll share it with you tomorrow, so come back and check it out!

Pulse Management is proud to introduce the beautiful Bella as one of our new faces. Bella was scouted in Hawaii by Bree Hanneman and we are thanking our lucky stars that Bree found her. Bella lives in Hawaii, which worked out perfectly because Bree is an incredible photographer and this picture is from a photoshoot that they did together. This just goes to show that when you pair a new model with a talented photographer some magic can happen. We can see great things happening for this beauty, stay tuned for updates!

Look out New York City, because our girl Olivia Hamilton is back and she is looking better than ever! After spending a little bit of time at home and catching up on her school work, she is back in the city that is practically becoming her second home. We love seeing pictures of her, seemingly in her element in New York. It is always reassuring to us when we see our models becoming comfortable with their surroundings in New York, because the fashion market there is crucial. Also, looking at these pictures we can't help but think that if Olivia is looking this good in her instagram snaps, her photoshoots are going to be out of this world!

For today's Major Moment Monday we are throwing it back to October of 2013, when this editorial of Pulse Management Discovery Hannah Holman was published. The editorial ran in the Sunday Times Style Magazine, and Hannah looks as incredible as ever. For those not familiar with this publication, it features some of the most prominent and promising models in the industry. Over the years Karlie Kloss, Dourzen Kroes, Alexa Chung, Jourdan Dunn, Christy Turlington, Elle Macpherson and Alessandra Ambrosio have been in editorials in the mag, and thats just naming a few! We were excited when Hannah booked this job that she would be included amongst so many of her talented peers.

I don't know how the weather is where you are, but where I'm sitting in Southern California it is HOT! These summer days remind me of when Hannah Holman was in the Bershka SS 14 Ad Campaign, and looking through these pictures all I want to be doing is spending time on a beach in Rio! We scouted Hannah in a small town in Utah, but we love how she fits right in hanging on the beaches in Brazil. Who knows if Hannah would have ever had a chance to travel to Rio, and all of the other incredible places she has been if she never started modeling. We are glad that we were able to launch Hannah's career, and help her find an incredible way to travel the world. We are just happy we get to see pictures from all of her journeys.

It's been a while since our last Throwback Thursday post, and I don't know about you but I've missed them. There is something about the nostalgia combined with the instant gratification of seeing how far a model has come that I love. For instance the above picture of Nichole Martinez is from her first photo shoot with us. Back in 2011 our scout Lacey found Nichole in Colorado, and then Nichole had a test shoot and from it we made her first comp card. Below you can see Nichole's comp card from the most recent NYFW, last February. Since last summer Nichole has been featured on Models.com, and twice in WWD. We are looking forward to seeing what else Nichole accomplishes during her career, and we will continue to keep you posted on this beauty.

We have always though that Liz Kennedy looks pretty luminous, so the title of one of her newer editorials, "Everything is Illuminated" is very fitting. This picture was featured in On the Rocks Magazine, and was photographed by Charlotte Wales. Wales has photographed editorials for Vogue, W Magazine, and V Magazine amongst many others, so we were thrilled that our model Liz had the opportunity to be in a photo shoot with her.
Right now Liz is back in her hometown in Minnesota, enjoying a little bit of a summer break and hanging out with her friends. We discover our models all over the place, so we like to see them getting back to their normal lives and being regular teenagers every once in awhile. We try to help them stay as balanced as possible. So enjoy it Liz because come September, you will be needed back on the runways in NYC!

Have you ever had that feeling where you know something exciting is going to happen, and you just can't wait for it? Thats kind of how we feel about our model Kristina Jordan. As I look through this series of photos of her, I know that this model has the potential for an incredible career and I'm so excited to see all of the things she accomplishes. She recently returned home from working in New York, which we documented here and here. It is going to be exciting to be a part of her developing career, and don't worry we will keep you all posted on everything she accomplishes! In the meantime enjoy this stunning series of photos from one of her test shoots.

slideshow reposted from Teen Vogue
Each week on the Teen Vogue Instagram they post a slideshow called #modelmonday, where they share the faces of some new up and coming models. Last Monday, TWO of our models were featured. Georgia Weeks and Hazel Eakman's photos were included. We are thrilled that out of nine models shown last week, two of them were discovered by us and are part of our Pulse Management team! We have always seen great potential in these two models, and its amazing to see that Teen Vogue does too.

This picture of Liz Kennedy and Olivia Hamilton is like the gift that keeps on giving. First we liked it because it is a great backstage photo of when these two walked in the Dennis Basso show during February's NYFW. The when we saw Liz's instagram caption with it, that she missed her best friend, it made us so happy! We love when our models are friends with each other, and when they can support each other's successes shows not only true friendship, but also maturity on their part.
Then we saw that Liz wrote that Cece Drake (actress Vanessa Shaw's character from Pretty Little Liars) is in the background of this pic, it just made the picture that much better. If anyone here watches Pretty Little Liars, you know what a cult following it has.
Just when we thought we have uncovered all of the awesome layers in this picture, we looked in the comments of Liz's post, and guess who commented? Dennis Basso, the designer of the fashion show! So not only do we love this picture of our beautiful besties, the designer of the show that they walked in together also liked the picture. It doesn't get much cooler than that!

Have you all seen the feature Meet the Muse on High Snobiety? This week they featured our model, Gia Whited, click here to see it. We always love seeing our models' personalities come through, and when they are interviewed it makes it even better! Gia's pictures for the feature look effortlessly cool, as always, but we think her interview answers are even better. Way to represent Pulse Gia, you are definitely one of our favorite muses.

We are hoping you saw our post yesterday about our model Ashland Wendlandt walking in the Dior show in Tokyo. We have a couple new pictures for you that we had to share. Also, news stories about the show were popping up everywhere yesterday. The fact that Rihanna was in attendance and it was her first event as the guest of honor was particularly noteworthy. Check out this story from WWD, and this one from Style.com (two of the biggest publications in fashion). This show is hopefully going to lead to some big things for Ashland, and as soon as we can share details with you, you better believe we will.

Ashland, Rihanna, and some of the other models after the show
Yesterday our model Ashland had quite an exciting day. She walked in the Dior show in Tokyo, which any fashion lover will know is huge. There aren't many fashion brands as iconic as Dior, and Ashland now has walking down their runway under her belt. After the show Ashland got the pleasure to meet Rihanna, who is currently starring in a Dior campaign. Ashland who we discovered at a concert, went from being a normal Wisconsin teenager to walking the runway in Japan and hanging out with Rihanna. We are so proud of you Ashland, and we know there are exciting things ahead for you. This is just the beginning!

During February's NYFW, the famous (or infamous) designer Marjan Pejoski of KTZ made his debut. KTZ has been showing at London Fashion Week previously, but this year he decided to show in New York. Pulse Management model Liz Kennedy walked in the show, and I have to say her look is one of the most memorable from the show. We are getting excited for fashion week in September, it will be upon us before we know it. We have a group of models that we are readying for NYFW this fall, and we think it is going to be our biggest fashion week yet!

Readers of our blog know that our model Olivia Hamilton has had a whirlwind year. She is from Colorado, but modeling takes her to New York, Europe, and Asia so she really is all over the place. We recently discovered that while Olivia has been traveling all over, she has been not only keeping up with her school work, she made the honor roll! It is of the utmost importance that our models keep up on their school work, and Olivia making the Honor Roll goes to show that it is not only possible to keep up, a model can excel at her studies while working. Olivia is a model, ballerina, scholar, and more and we are so proud of her.

One of the exciting (and frustrating) things about modeling is sometimes you never know when you are going to get pictures back, or when you will stumble on pictures from a shoot you were in. Natalie Keyser recently found these pictures from an editorial she shot for a Mexican fashion magazine called Elfes Magazine. Natalie spent some time working in Mexico City, and we were continually impressed by the quality of the editorials she was in during her time there.
