Another Fashion & Beauty Reality Show

It seems that Janice Dickinson will be making a splash again starting next year.

Freemantle Media has been commissioned to help create a fashion/beauty reality series that follows Janice Dickinson as she creates her own Hollywood modelling agency. The series is set to debut sometime this year.

The 10-episode series from Krasnow Productions and FremantleMedia North America offers viewers an intimate view into Dickinsonís life as she tackles the gruelling work of starting her own business and teaching a new generation of aspiring models the business from the ground up.

Viewers watch as Dickinson juggles motherhood, champions her new models, and tries to run a profitable agency, all while dealing with skepticism from the industry she helped to define. The show goes beyond Dickinsonís runway persona to show a woman on the verge of a new phase in her career and determined to redefine American beauty.

Sure Janice is outrageous, and loud, and zany, but I hardly believe she’s the “quintessential Oxygen personality.”

Personally, after seeing her display on the Surreal Life (and a few displays on ANTM), I have to wonder if all of Janice’s sense is firmly intact.

Hopefully this show doesn’t turn into a spectacle because Oxygen is a great network and has already set such a high standard for women everywhere.

Treat Yourself To A Facial

A model needs to look her (or his) best at all times. And one of the first places an agency notices will be your face, so it’s important that your first impression be a good one.

Proper facial and skin care is essential to this industry – even if you are a hand or foot model. So, if you haven’t already taken the time to give yourself a facial, now is as good a time as any. Try to make it a weekly habit.

Below you’ll find a 30 minute quick and dirty facial regimen.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 small facial towels
  • Herbal tea
  • Facial cleanser suited to your skin type
  • Facial scrub suited to your skin type
  • Quick drying facial mask
  • Facial toner suited to your skin type
  • Facial moisturizer suited to your skin type

Let’s get started:

  1. Set your herbal tea to boiling in an open pot and let that set while you prepare.
  2. Get started by washing your face with lukewarm water and pat dry with one of the towels.
  3. Using gloves or something heat resistance, dip one of the small towels in the pot and soak up the herbal tea.
    • Wring the towel out and let it cool, but don’t let it get too cold.
    • When the towel is comfortable to the touch with bare hands, place gently over the face while you lay down.
    • Once the towel cools down to luke warm, place it in the fridge.
  4. While your pores are still open, use the scrub and make sure to slosh off any dead skin.
  5. When you’ve completed the scrub, next spread the quick drying mask liberally over the skin, being careful to avoid the eye and mouth area
  6. Once the mask is dry, clean off (following the instructions) and pat dry with towel, then apply the skin toner.
  7. Remove the other towel from the fridge and rest on the face for a few minutes to close up the pores.
  8. Finish up your facial with a soothing moisturizer.

Je T’aime Petite’s Nationwide Model Search

If you’re a petite model, then your eyes can perk up and take notice of the Je T’aime Petite’s Nationwide Model Search for the Petite Figure.

DALLAS, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ — Je T’aime Petite, a luxury designer fashion
line for the Petite is seeking 20 models ranging in ages from 18-60. Models
will participate in a “Fashion Event of the Decade” with the theme “Romance in
Paris.”

PLACE: Fashion Debut/Gala in Dallas, Texas.

THEME: “ROMANCE in PARIS”.

DEBUT: Summer 2006, exact date and location to be announced on
December 31, 2005

Je T’aime Petite is an elegant, chic, glamorous and sophisticated luxury
designer-collection and will be promoted as: “THE FASHION EVENT of the
DECADE.”

[Press Release at PRNewsWire]

The press release prompts you to visit the Je T’aime Petite website for more information so I swung by before posting this. In my opinion, it looks like it hasn’t been updated in a couple years (the copyright still reads 2003). It has missing links to some pages, outdated style, and I couldn’t find further information regarding this model search.

The website can simply be outdated because Ms. Allen may be swamped with work, but I also noted the date and time for the search hasn’t been solidified.

I know just how bad things can get and how quickly without proper planning and diligent attention to details and I’ve seen more than one fashion search/contest cancelled for those reasons.

As with just about anything in life, I’d recommend doing some further investigation on your own and make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into when you’re signing yourself up for the Je T’aime Petite model search.

Apparently Imitation Is Still The Sincerest Form of Flattery

Well, it seems that a full blown trend is about to start here. I mentioned it yesterday, but when I saw a new show being promoted called Africa’s Next Super Model, it seemed like deja vu.

This one is a little more obvious though – change the words Africa to America and Super to Top and you have the same show.

Africa’s Next Supermodel TV show is an exciting Reality TV show from Beauties of Africa Inc. that is expected to be broadcast in Europe, The United States and Africa to a Global Audience of millions viewers every week. For the first time Black and African models will be taking part in a TV reality show…
[Africa’s Next Super Model]

While America’s Next Top Model isn’t exclusive to only black women, they certainly have no restrictions against it, but then again – it’s America’s Next Top Model, not Africa’s. I guess I’m happy in a way because imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so it means ANTM has really hit the big time.

Now I’ll finish up my small rant and let you all know that they are currently looking for models to participate in their program.

The Global search for Africa’s next Supermodel ™ has officially begun, and we are looking for the next Black Super Model, castings and auditions will be held in different locations in Africa Europe and the United States to enable as many contestants the chance to participate in the Global search, we have agents in some countries and in others we will conduct open auditions and castings, the search involves a global audition and casting process involving agent in many different countries in the world.

If you think you have what it takes to become Africa’s Next Super Model, are between 16-26 years old and at least one black parent, then you can fill out their entry form and send it in (they’ll even pay to have you go to Europe for the duration of the show).
