America’s Next Top Model Rip (Miss Seventeen)

I knew it was bound to happen. We see it all the time with the regular manufacturers and cable networks, so I knew it was only a matter of time before it actually happened to America’s Next Top Model.

It’s been so successful (I believe it’s been a lot more successful than anyone expected) that others are trying to get in on the action. More specifically – Miss Seventeen.

They have gathered a group of girls and put them in a house together to determine who has what it takes to be Miss Seventeen and whoever wins gets to be on the cover of Seventeen magazine.

17 accomplished and ambitious young women compete in weekly character-testing challenges, all under the watchful eye of Seventeen magazine editor-in-chief Atoosa Rubenstein.

Doesn’t that description sound familiar to you? Not even an “inspired by America’s Next Top Model” (because we all know she was).

Now, I have nothing against Seventeen, but it always seems to nag at me a little bit when I see other companies trying to jump on a bandwagon and not give credit where it’s due when they see the originator experiences some success with it. But I guess that’s just how business works.

About this Miss Seventeen thing – the series premieres this fall on MTV (actually, it’s airing October 17th) and you can bet your bodice (or briefs) that I’ll be watching just to see what it’s all about. I’ll be sure to report back here with my thoughts on it.

The deadline to enter for this season has passed, however, you can sign up to be kept updated in the event they will be holding castings again.

2005 Fashion!Dallas/Kim Dawson Model Search Results Are In

The winners of the 2005 Fashion!Dallas/Kim Dawson Model Search have been chosen. After some 7,000 readers cast their votes, Ali Michael and Kennard Hendricks were chosen from a group of 55 finallists whittled down from 2,000. That’s not too shabby for two people who haven’t even finished high school yet.

Though some of the other finalists also will receive modeling contracts with Kim Dawson, Ali and Kennard emerged on top, each earning the title “winner,” a Dallas Morning News photo shoot and $500 in Galleria Dallas spending money. Here’s more about the very photogenic, and very excited, young Texans.

Let’s Be Real For A Moment

Let me be frank for a moment. We are responsible for our self and our own actions. If we do something we know is wrong, we must accept the unpleasant consequences as we would accept the pleasant consequences when we do something right.

With the recent flurry of news over the Kate Moss drug scandal, Naomi Campbell felt compelled to defend her, although Naomi has issues of her own – but that’s another entry for another day. Naomi says:

“Kate Moss is my friend … I think it’s like everybody is being bad to her,” … “It’s not the first time it has happened in the world …”

Kate Moss has done something wrong and she is now suffering the unpleasant consequences of her action. No one is “being bad to her” – however, she can’t sweep it under the rug and pretend it never happened.

It doesn’t matter if she’s not the only one in the world who has done it, they will have to deal with their own negative repercussions, right now, Kate must deal with her own. Being famous or well known does not make you automatically exempt from dealing with negative consequences.

It does not mean she is a bad person – I don’t know her personally – however, it just means that she must pay for her mistake.

It’s reported that she’s lost three modeling contracts due to these drug allegations and checking into a rehab clinic, but this is bad PR, not only for her, but for the modeling agencies and their clients.

This goes back to the basic principle of – learn from your mistakes. This is certainly not the end of the world for Kate. Life has a way of working itself out.

Epitome Models 2005 International Fashion Model Search

Alexandria Levingston’s Epitome Models story is a truly inspiring one and shows the true potential in having a dream and following through with it. Now, she is hosting the Epitome Models 2005 International Fashion Model Search.

Whilst Alexandria is always looking for the next great face of fashion, she has a very specific idea of what the next Epitome model will exemplify. For a model to be considered, Alexandria looks at everything from hair, skin, nails, teeth and figure to being well versed and articulate. Chosen models are often sent abroad to strengthen their books and develop skills. [continue reading Alexandria’s story]

The model search contestants have a chance to win a $100,000 modeling contract, become a spokesmodel for Jahkur fragrance, be featured on Seventeen magazine’s Check It Out promotional listings, and a 7 day all expenses paid vacation to Kauai (think you need a vacation yet?).

If you’re a girl between 14-22 years of age, and think you may be what Epitome Models is looking for, take a moment to enter the model search.
