Fresh off of a whirlwind New York Fashion Week (that we posted about here), our model Sophia Skloss hopped on a plane to Europe to be in the shows there too. Here is a recap of the shows that Sophia walked in while she was in Europe. Also, please keep in mind that these fashion shows are the top designers in Europe, and there are no bigger runway shows than those during the show season in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. So each picture and show listed here is a major accomplishment for any model, let alone one model! (Each link with the designer name will take you directly to the writeup and photos of the show from Vogue.com)
Do you all remember our model (turned superstar) BriAnn Rachele? She is one of our favorite models, and we have absolutely loved managing her career over the years. She filmed season one of Model Turned Superstar in Australia with Alessandra Ambrosio. We can't tell you exactly what place she came in on the show, but I can tell you that it is in the top five, which is amazing!
Since wrapping up filming BriAnn kept busy in Australia filming two short films and a comedy series. She attended the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), and has been working as a TV host and sports broadcaster. Not bad for a model that we found in Utah!
BriAnn is now back in the states and getting ready to move out to LA to take on the acting world. We are so proud of everything that she has accomplished so far, and it has been both rewarding and fun to manage her career.
When I asked her about her experience on Model Turned Superstar she said:
"Being on Model Turned Superstar was an experience of a lifetime! I met so many beautiful people and had the opportunity to go to some really amazing locations. The challenges were so much fun (some a bit scary!) and I feel I got to learn and do a lot of things that I normally wouldn't have, which is so cool! They really took care of us on set and made the entire experience beyond memorable - every day was a spectacular one!! I learned so much there about myself and where I want my career to go and to come back and to have the support of Stacey is phenomenal, as always!! I'm very excited for what's coming and even more excited knowing I have my Pulse family behind me every step of the way and now the support of the life-long friends i've made from Model Turned Superstar! Stay tuned for the show to air - it will be fun to reminisce and I want everyone to take this journey with me. xoxo "
We tell our models all the time how important their personality is for their career. Beautiful models are a dime a dozen, and their personality is what is going to set them apart from all of the other models at the castings they go to. At their photoshoots, being upbeat and positive makes a big impression on the rest of the crew. No one wants to work (in any capacity) with someone who is complaining all the time.
Some models are more reserved, and it is a challenge to be outgoing and upbeat in front of the camera. Our model Alex Romney is not one of them. We recently received this video from her, and it shows why we love her so much. Her fun personality is infectious, and we know that it is a big reason why people love having her on jobs. Remember thisAeropostale shoot she did? Some of the bookers at the agencies we have set up Alex to work with even send out videos like this of her to potential clients, and we can definitely see why.
Alex, you are amazing, and we love managing your career!
These photos of Liz Kennedy from the Oscar de la Renta Bridal Fall 2016 look book are bridal beauty at its finest! Being the single model booked for a look book is a big deal, but when you are the only model booked for a designer like Oscar de la Renta it is HUGE! Liz looks like she was made to wear these exquisite gowns, and it's hard to imagine that she is just a regular teenager from Minnesota. This is really shaping up to be an amazing year for Liz, and we know she has so many incredible things in store.
Happy (major moment) Monday everyone! I have been waiting all weekend to show you this editorial of Olivia Hamilton for Schön! Magazine. Not only are the photos (taken by Anna Peftieva) some of our new favorite pictures of Olivia, they are published in a magazine that will be distributed in 13 countries! To see the entire editorial click here. You may remember we posted a teaser of this shoot here, and we have been anxiously anticipating seeing the rest of this editorial ever since. Olivia exceeded our high expectations, and we couldn't be more proud of her.
