Olivia Hamilton on Health

Well apparently this week is Liz and Olivia week, but these two beautiful best friends keep providing us with material that is too good not to share with all of you. Yesterday morning Olivia Hamilton posted a Facebook status about health that really verbalized exactly what we try to tell our models all the time. In order to model you have to have a certain figure, and really it is more about keeping up your overall health, than just losing weight. In order to be able to model you have to have the stamina to be in front of the camera (which sometimes entails running, jumping, dancing, etc.), not to mention be able to run from casting to casting, and be able to do a lot of it in stilettos. Having models who will be able to keep themselves healthy is key, because if a model is starving herself to just be thin there is no way she will be able to keep up with her career (not to mention how unhealthy that is!).

Olivia said, "I think a lot of people struggle with the concept of health. Just because someone's skinny doesn't mean they are healthy and just because someone is healthy doesn't mean they are skinny. Any size person can be malnourished and any size person can be healthy to a degree. The difference is a diet of veggies, fruit, lean proteins, and whole grains versus a diet of skipping meals, restricting calories, etc. With the right amount of healthy portion control, healthy foods, and exercising, your results will be far better than the other route. I don't understand why people choose to do it the unhealthy way instead of increase their life span and live a happy, healthy life. In the long run that's what matters."

So the moral of the story is, we want you all to be healthy, especially as the New Year approaches and everyone is making their resolutions. Don't look for short cuts to a perfect body, instead focus on your overall health and choose a way to get healthy that you can sustain for the long run.

Liz Kennedy for L'Officiel Japan

You are getting a double dose of Liz Kennedy this week, but when we I see photos like these I can't help but post them right away! These pages are from an editorial in L'official Japan, and I have to say that this edgier look on Liz looks pretty cool. It's funny to think of sweet Liz, our midwestern highschooler, looking grungy in this Japanese fashion magazine. That's one of the things we love about modeling though, where you are from doesn't matter it is how your photos turn out that make or break your career. We can't wait to see the rest of the photos from this editorial Liz, because we are loving what we have seen so far!

Olivia the Graduate!

We have to give a major shout out to our model Olivia Hamilton. She has been working with us for a few years now, traveling all over the world, and staying on the Honor Roll while doing it. Olivia just finished high school, a semester early, and kept up her impressive grades while doing it. This girl is not only beautiful, but she is smart, and she is a hard worker, which is an incredible combination. We are proud of you Olivia, and we know that you will be able to accomplish anything you put your mind to.

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Liz Kennedy for Telegraph Magazine

The Monday after a holiday weekend is always a little bit rough, but hopefully this editorial of Liz Kennedy will help brighten your day. These photos ran in the Telegraph Magazine in the UK, and we can't get over the lush scenery paired with the cozy wool pieces in the wardrobe. Liz shot this when she was in London, and it turned out incredibly. Great work Liz, another killer editorial to add to your book.

Merry Christmas!

Shayna and Stacey Eastman

We hope you all are having a wonderful holiday season. As we reflect on this year we can't help but feel very grateful for everything we have experienced, and more importantly for all of you. Whether you are a colleague, one of our models, the family members of our models, potential models, or friends of ours through social media, we are grateful for all of you. Tomorrow we will be celebrating Christmas with our families, and we hope that no matter what holiday you are celebrating your season has been filled with love and light.

Sophie Skloss on the Cover of Red Thread Magazine

We have a feeling that being on the cover of the inaugural issue of Red Thread Journal is going to be one the highlights of Sophia Skloss' holiday season! Red Thread Journal is a bi-annual British fashion magazine, so it is definitely notable that out of their two covers they will have in a year they selected Sophia to be on the cover of one. 

Sophia's birthday was on Sunday, and we are always impressed by her maturity and composure that is well-beyond her years. In the past year she worked with designers and labels like Burberry, Delpozo, Phillip Lim, Zac Posen, Rodarte, and the list goes on and on! We are looking forward to seeing what the new year brings for this beauty.

Pulse Management Introduces Brook Swanson

Before all of the Star Wars madness we were introducing you to some of our new faces, and we can't let another day pass without introducing you to Brook Swanson. Brook and her mom Melissa flew to New York from North Dakota for her Dolls Model Management photo shoot. Timothy Rosado worked his magic with Brook, and her photos are beautiful. Brook we are so excited to manage you (that gorgeous complexion of yours is just begging to be in a beauty campaign), and are looking forward to an exciting career ahead.

Hazel Eakman's Star Wars Inspired Makeup for Refinery 29

Refinery 29 teamed up with CoverGirl to share some makeup looks inspired by Star Wars, and our model Hazel Eakman was one of the models for the feature. Last week we posted about Hazel modeling a Star Wars shirt for Macy's, so we weren't exaggerating when we said the force is strong with Hazel. Apparently she is our go-to model for all things Star Wars, and judging by the movie's box office records, being linked to Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn't a bad thing! Once again Hazel looks incredible, and this makeup has us embracing our inner fangirl!

The Force is Strong in This One!

Just in case you missed it (which seems kind of impossible), the latest Star Wars movie opens this weekend. I'm sure seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be on a lot of your to do lists this weekend. The other day when Stacey was flying home from NYC, he saw the Star Wars plane that was carrying many of the cast members to London for the film's premiere. Seriously, this movie is everywhere and it just came out!

Our model, Hazel Eakman, can be seen on the Macy's website modeling this Star Wars tee. Even without seeing her face we think that Hazel looks incredible in this shirt, and we can see why Macy's booked her for this shoot. (She modeled multiple looks, but we think this Star Wars one is the most appropriate for today)

Congrats to Andie Miller

We interrupt introducing you to some of our new models, to bring you an update on one of our more established models. We scouted Andie Miller and launched her modeling career. She currently is living and working as a model in LA (with LA Models), and we have to give her a huge shout out for her national commercial with Tradesy. We will be keeping our eyes peeled to see the whole thing, but in the meantime this photo teaser will have to do.

Pulse Management Introduces Hadley Krueger

Our scouts are on fire lately, because they have found us the most incredible models. The past Dolls Model Management shoot in NYC last weekend was one of the best ones we've had. Pictured here is Hadley Kreuger, who came from the midwest to meet us in New York. We had the incredible team of Timothy Rosado, Aracely Arocho, and Edwin Pierrot for her photo shoot, and the results are nothing short of impressive, especially for Hadley's first shoot. 

Hadley and her mom came to New York for the weekend, and texted us after that they had an amazing weekend, and that they loved the experience of the photo shoot. We loved having them with us, and are so glad that Hadley is part of the Pulse Management team.

Pulse Management Introduces: Siri Olsen

In continuing with our week of introducing you to some of our new faces, we'd like to introduce you to Siri Olsen. Siri and her mom joined us in New York, all the way from Minnesota, and we are so glad that they did. We aren't the only ones that are enamored with this beauty though, Timothy Rosado has posted her photo on his instagram, and there is a video clip on the Omit Magazine instagram of her as well. Not too bad for a girl's first weekend as a model!

Pulse Management Introduces: Lilli Junge

Pulse Management president, Stacey Eastman, has been pounding the pavement in New York city the past few days doing test shoots of some of our new models. Our latest Dolls Model Management shoot occurred over the weekend, and we could not be happier with the results!

First up we'd like to introduce you all to Lilli Junge, and saying we are blown away by her photos by Timothy Rosado is an understatement. Our scouts have been finding us the best models lately, and Lilli is just one of the stunning examples. Lilli and her mom flew out to New York for the test shoot, and we are so grateful for their willingness to trust Pulse Management to develop and launch her modeling career. We think this is just the beginning of a great partnership with Lilli!

Olivia Hamilton for Big Magazine

I don't know what it is about this photo of our model Olivia Hamilton, but I think it is one of my favorite photos of her yet! She was photographed by Craig Salmon, hair was styled by John Ruidant, and makeup by Paco Blancas, for an editorial for Big Magazine. The covers of Big Magazine have been graced by supermodels like Lauren Hutton and Shalom Harlow, and we are proud to say that our Olivia Hamilton has also been featured inside the magazine. Not bad company to keep!

Christian Sereika in Funny or Die Video

Christian Sereika, one of our Action Sports Athletes, was recently in a video posted on Funny or Die, and it is pretty funny. So far more the video has more than 21k views! Christian appears at the beginning and then he gets more camera time at the 2:49 mark. You can check out the video HERE. Warning, this video has some profanity, so please keep that in mind if you click to watch it.

We have been managing Christian for years now, and he is every bit as cool and down to earth as he is talented (and good looking). We are looking forward to many more years of exciting stuff ahead with Christian.

Fusion's Leomie Anderson in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Were you all amongst the millions of people who watched the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show last night? If you did you saw our partner, Fusion Model Management's Leomie Anderson walk the runway. Booking the Victoria's Secret fashion show is one of the biggest jobs a model can book, and the fact that Fusion had a girl in the show is HUGE! We are not surprised because both Fusion and Leomie are amazing. We have nothing but confidence in Fusion's abilities, which is why we have so many of our models placed with them in New York City.

Leomie is rightfully getting all kinds of buzz right now because of the fashion show. We loved this article about her in i-D Magazine. Our favorite part is when she said, "I just believe people will continue to work with you because you've got a good personality and you're good at your job. I am not interested in being a one season girl." This is exactly along the lines of what we tell our models all the time!

We can't issue a big enough, heartfelt congratulations to our partners at Fusion and to Leomie for such a major accomplishment!

Hazel Eakman for Zak Posen Pre-Fall 2016

Seeing our model Hazel Eakman pop up on our instagram feed is nothing out of the ordinary. Seeing our model Hazel Eakman pop up on our instagram feed in ZAC POSEN's picture is definitely something new and exciting! Hazel was cast in Posen's Pre-fall collection showing, and we loved that  all of his million instagram followers saw our model wearing one of his beautiful gowns. Hazel also shared a backstage picture of her hair and makeup look for the showing on her instagram. Congrats Hazel, this was a big deal, and we are excited for you!

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Hazel and Madison for Haunted Mag

Last week we posted this about our models Hazel Eakman and Madison Moehling on the cover of Haunted Mag's latest issue. Its been a week since we saw the cover photo, but the excitement hasn't worn off that two of our models shared their first magazine cover together! Today we have the photos from the accompanying editorial and we can't get enough of them. Also, maybe I need to add all of the clothing from the shoot to my Christmas list, because they styling is off the charts.
