This week we celebrate you! Our stunners! The unique models in our modeling community, may I add! It has been a journey starting 2009 and we have now grown to over 400k models! Let’s dive into just a few of the model experiences over these past couple of years.
Masha Yerokhova breaks down modelling stereotypes as she has never been represented by an agency due to her short height. Her response? Create your own fashion, rather than follow it. Could not agree more Masha!
BBHMM (B*tch better have my money) modelmanagement.com’s modeling contest Fresh Faces Winner Sita Abellán, starred in Rihanna’s music video as one of RiRi’s bad girls. Her career did not stop there as she got signed with Wilhelmina Models shortly after taking the spotlight in our modelling competition and was cast for Moschino, Jeremy Scott and more!
Sita is not the only star found on MM, Monika Reiterova took the spotlight in the music video of famous Italian rapper Ghali called Marijuana. Ghali wanted a model representing class and a hint of fashion instead of the usual ‘’big booty models’’ shown in hip hop music videos.
Or how about Chelsea Princess, one of our MM success stories who went on to star in campaigns for Bata and BONPRIX!
From the gym to the cover of Cosmopolitan in Germany. Rudi Witkowsky and girlfriend, Victoria Botha were discovered by Rebecca von Rehn. The couple’s charm, uniqueness (and blue hair!) were details that stole Rebecca’s heart and that of German Cosmopolitan as they wrote an article on the shoot calling them the ‘’sweetest couple ever’’. #CoupleGoals!
Surprised is how Ricardo Fernandez started his modelling career as he was selected as a Fresh Faces contest Winner and was signed by an agency straight away. Daniel Perez experienced the same, as he walked for famous brands like Prada and Armani right after the competition.
Another Fresh Faces Winner is Ana Margarida from sunny Portugal. She is now signed with Central Models, the same agency that represents Sara Sampaio from Victoria Secret! She is featured in several campaigns and is on her way to becoming the next Portuguese Top Model!
Birgitta Petursdottir from Iceland was scouted at age 19 by an agency. Birgitta mentions the opportunities to have a modelling career in Iceland are minimum and thanks her career to the internet.
A new door opens.. Jessica Aidi was casted by Karl Lagerfeld (out of over 2000 applicants!) to be on the cover of ELLE France. With little modelling experience she managed to heat up the game and is currently signed with elite modelling agency, Next Paris.
Fan Wang has signed contracts with Milk Model Management (London), Nathaliee Models (Paris), Metro Models (Switzerland) and Uno (Barcelona). Nowadays Fan Wang is busy walking for Pret-aPorter shows in Paris, Milan and London.
Haven’t you learned to never ask a lady for her age? Inspiring model Alicia Valle has joined the community as a senior model at the age of 50 years. Her photos are beautiful! Another barrier breaker is Samantha Sam, who is covered in artistic tattoos, she works as both a catwalk and photography model. Her first catwalk was for designer Anna Naagy.
Andrea Talamantes, Valeria López and Kristine Skaiste were casted in a 3 series shoot with photographer Juan Chu. Juan has work published in magazines such as: Period, Scorpion Jun, HUF Magazine and more.
This is just a glimpse of our busy bees, as there are now over 400k incredible models of types from Fashion to Plus size, to Tattooed to Alternative active in the community! These models believe in their capabilities of being awesome and are sharing their unique beauty with the world. Aspiring, Professional, Purple and Pink, everyone can be a model, as can you! Let’s raise our virtual champagne glass and say cheers! Whoooop! 400K Hooray!
