Big Moment for Natalie Keyser!

We love this pic that our girl, Natalie Keyser, posted on her instagram.  All you models out there know that it is a big deal when one of your pictures ends up in a frame at your agency's office.  It means that out of all the work, from every model they represent, the photo of yours is one that they deem noteworthy, and they want others to be sure to see it too!  This picture is from Natalie's agency that we have her with in Mexico, Paragon Model Management.  Congrats on achieving your goal Nat, we are just as thrilled as you are.

Also, we loved this article about the realities of being a model.  Modeling can be very exciting and glamorous, but this article entails some of the less glamorous things about modeling, and we think it is a must-read for all models, their friends and family, and any aspiring models.  For the people who want to get into modeling, it is good to know what you are getting into and to have realistic expectations.

Carson Spotted on Marc Jacobs' Instagram

As far as designers go, there are few as big as Marc Jacobs.  We were ecstatic when we saw our girl Carson Bruner on his international instagram.  Carson is showing a look from his Pre-Fall 2014 Collection and both she and the clothes look amazing! Congrats Carson, we know this isn't your first time working for Marc Jacobs, and we are sure this won't be your last time!

How Do You Say "Lucky" in French?

One of the major perks of working in the modeling industry is being able to introduce our models to places, people and cultures that they may not otherwise be exposed to.  Two of our favorite models, Carson Bruner and Armon Eastman jetted off to Paris this week and we are loving seeing their pictures.  Pulse Mgmt President (and Armon's Dad), Stacey Eastman, accompanied these two on their trip.  Carson and Armon will be busy working while in France, but it is fun to see these pictures of them, just being teenagers in one of the world's most amazing cities.  Keep posting pictures you guys, we love seeing them!

Happy (Belated) Birthday Shayna!

With all of the madness over the holiday weekend, we didn't post about one of the most important days of the year.  Happy birthday to the one and only Shayna Eastman!  She is one of the most beautiful people we know.  Pulse Management would not be where it is today with out this woman, and we are all so grateful for her. Shayna is the COO of Pulse, wife to Stacey, mother of six kids, and she is a friend to all of our models.  As a former model and actress, she can provide the unique perspective of someone who has worked in the industry to our models, and that advice and guidance has proven to be valuable more than we can say! She heads up our Dolls Model Management and Development and it couldn't be in better hands.  She is truly one of a kind, and we are so lucky that she (and Stacey) head up this Pulse Mgmt team.  Happy birthday Shayna, you just keep getting better!

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Ali Stephens for Calvin Klein Jeans

Seeing as it is Memorial Day, reflecting on a Major Moment only seems fitting.  For today's Major Moment Monday we are going back to F/W 2008 when Pulse Management discovery, Ali Stephens, booked this Calvin Klein Jeans ad campaign.  This happened just as we were launching Ali, and it really let the fashion industry know that she was going to be a major model.  The ad was photographed by the incomparable Steven Meisel, and Ali modeled alongside other models like Toni Garrn and Abbey Lee Kershaw, all three of whom have gone on to have continued success in this fickle industry.  This moment was a huge one in Ali's career, and a huge one for Pulse Mgmt as well.
