Check out these new shots of Kathryn, from our midwest office… We first introduced you to her here when Brandis scouted her at her mother’s store in Green Bay. First Photo by Lawrence Lau others by by Richard Winslow. So Pretty!
Check out these new shots of Noelle S, our small town girl from Lynchburg that we posted about here when she worked on Scouted.
Noelle is a dynamite looking girl, perfect skin, amazing bod and we are in the process of development with her. Shot by photographer Alejandro Poveda a new shooter we are working with from Argentina. We love his fresh, clean approach to shooting and look foward to working more with him!
Say hello to new face Kathryn B of Green Bay WI. Director of New Faces for MW, Brandis Ohlsson, decided to hold an open call for children last month to keep our kids board fresh. Sometimes we will partner with a children’s related business to spread the word of the open call. This time the call was hosted by Aymee Balison owner of Sweetpeas in Green Bay. While Brandis was meeting children she noticed a tall, gorgeous girl, who turned out to be Aymee’s daughter , Kathryn. At 14 and 5’11” and with that angelic face we signed her to an exclusive contract and are in the process of development. What you see below is her first test ever…( amazing) …. shot by Chicago photographer Meredith Morton with hair and makeup by Kerre Berry. Love this girl!
As promised, a post about some of the girls involved in Scouted that were not used in an episode this season. Some of these girls were freshly scouted, some I had met a few months prior, but all are lovely and were gracious enough to let E! film them, their families and their journey into modeling.
First is Noelle. She is an all american beauty with a dynamite smile and equally dynamite body. The networked loved the fact that she is a small town girl (her family is from a town near Lynchburg) and that she thought of Richmond as “the city”. Her mom and dad are terrific people and I thank them for allowing me to work with Noelle. We are still working on getting her tested, and developing her look, so check back with the MW website to see her grow. Shot below by Todd Wright.
Next is Emily. Emily had a great story in that one of my fashion guys, Max, goes to school with her and scouted her for me. He showed me some polaroids of her and we brought her in. A 5’11” equestrian with a great personality, we loved her immediately . Luis Aragon tested her for us (see below) and she looks amazing, even in a first test.
Caroline is another beautiful blonde. With mile high legs she is clearly a runway girl. The entire family has been friends of MW for a long time and we have watched Caroline grow into an gorgeous young woman. Legs for days… crazy. This photo from a recent shoot in Miami. Although Caroline was not used in the show, you did see her on the promos looking adorable.
Bronwyn is another girl they spent time with in Richmond. Tall, with a Cheryl Teigs type of beauty, we expect her to be a great commercial girl and her bubbly personality is just a bonus. Shot by Todd Wright
What most of you dont know is that we were also planning on having some of our men on Scouted. We had just scouted Alex when the producers came to town, and they LOVED Alex, (who would’nt… see the shot below , done just this week by Tim Coburn) but in the end, the agency E! went with , One Model Management, does not have a men’s board, so they cut all the boys at the last minute.
It’s amazing to how much footage was taken and how much time went into this show, and how little actually ends up on air. We love the way the show turned out, but I wanted to give some props to these great girls and boys too. Looking forward to next season!
Last night was the final episode of Scouted on E! The season ended with both girls getting signed ( did you agree with Scott’s decision?) …an all around feel-good ending.
For those of you who have asked for updates, here’s the scoop on the girls we brought up for the show. Amy & Kim Mervine, the twins from Virginia, are still modeling and building their portfolios. They have both booked work together and separately, and are becoming client favorites. After their episode, an agent from a top agency in NY called MW and asked to rep the girls in NY. They are scheduled to be in NY last week of January. As soon as the ink is dry on the contract, I’ll post who we signed them with. Both girls will be working in NY, then looking at travel abroad for the summer.
Hallie H. is a busy, busy girl. After her episode aired we were swamped with calls from fashion photographers wanting to shoot her and she is taking advantage of the interest and building her book. She will be meeting with agencies in NY in March and we are very confident she will sign with a top agency. After that the sky’s the limit for that girl . I am so proud of Hallie, finishing the commitment she made to her school and her parents before moving on to modeling. She is not only an amazing beauty, but has a wonderful character. Stay tuned to see updates on her often, including some pretty spectacular shoots we have planned for her.
What some of you may not realize is that while E! was here filming me scout Richmond, they filmed the storys of many other girls. I don’t know why some were featured on the show and some were not, that’ the network’s decision, but I do know that these other girls spent a good deal of time and energy being filmed for the show, and I’d like to introduce them too.
I will be doing a post on about 6 of those models tomorrow so you can meet them too! Until then… !
