Jumpstart your Modeling Career: the steps you need to do now to make 2018 your best year ever


There is no better time than the new year to kick start your modeling career and to take things up a notch, making 2018 your breakout year. It can be hard to get back into the swing of things and even know what you should be doing to elevate yourself and your career after the holidays, so I have compiled a list to help you hit the ground running:


Reach out to all your agencies in an email, or drop in if they are local to you.  Send them all your new images in hi-res so they can update your online portfolio.  Express your commitment to your career, your desire to travel to different markets, and your ambitions.  Ask them to help you reach out and see what other markets and agents would be good for you.  Make sure they have all your current sizes, updated digitals or polaroids, test shots, tear sheets, contact info, and all the tools they need to help you succeed.  


Commit to working out and actually do it.  It is good for your body, your health, your modeling prospects, your mind, and your stress levels.


Get a hair trim to maintain your hair in good condition for work, or consider a new haircut to change your image, but always ask the agency first. Start doing regular facials at home to maintain a good complexion, so you will always be ready for shoots.



Eat well, drink less alcohol and don’t smoke - your career depends on it.  You must maintain a good weight with healthy eating to be strong and able to actually do the job, and alcohol and smoking destroys your skin and makes you look old and haggard. 


Commit to increasing your social media presence.  Set a schedule for posting, follow industry pros such as top and emerging photographers, hair and makeup artists, magazines, editors, stylists, brands, designers, and other models. “Like” and comment regularly.  Do Instagram “stories”.  Always follow your agency guidelines when posting.


If you are trying to find an agent or get scouted, do updated research to identify the best agents, agencies, and scouts, and follow their submissions guidelines to the letter. 

A new year requires a new commitment if you want to take your career to new heights.  Put some energy into it and you will see results.  Put it out there into the universe and ask for help to make your dreams come true.  Be smart about it and treat it like a business and watch your career take off.  Good luck in 2018!

Holiday Warm Weather Escape - Be Beauty-Ready for the Beach


The snow is falling, the holiday stress is starting to wear a bit thin, and thoughts naturally run to warm weather getaways filled with stress-free days on a remote beach.  Peeling off the layers and donning a swimsuit requires a bit of preparation to arrive glowing and and ready for the sun and sand. 


Start with exfoliation to brush off winter body skin, using a scrub that leaves behind smooth skin hydrated: try Herbivore Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish.  Follow up with a glow-inducing body treatment:  Kopari Coconut Body Glow.  Finish up with a self-tanner that is simple to apply and creates a sun-kissed look:  try Vita Liberata Body Blur Instant HD Skin Finish.  


Prep your face and neck by using a mask that brightens as it gently exfoliates: try Glam Glow FlashMud Brightening Treatment.  Create a golden glow without sun damage with Clarins Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster. Don’t forget to pack your sunscreen. As you already know, using self-tanner does not protect you from the sun.  


Easy hair is one of the perks of vacation beauty, and that means no fussy or tricky hairstyles when heading to the beach.  Follow up with a leave-in conditioner that controls frizz and hydrates at the same time: try IGK Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm.


Being beauty-ready before the plane even takes off means you can head straight to the beach upon landing knowing you look like you have been there a week already, rather than someone desperately escaping frigid temperatures with dry skin and a stressed out complexion.  Happy travels!

Victoria's Secret Angels Take Shanghai 2017


It seems like the holiday season doesn’t officially start until the Angels take to the runway in the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.  Each year the show gets larger and more spectacular, featuring the hottest music artists perfuming while the supermodels strut down the runway in costumes that somehow seem to out-do those of the previous shows. 


This year the Angels traveled to Shanghai, to the enormous excitement of their eastern fans.  In a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show first the brand collaborated with legendary design house Balmain who created punk princess studded jackets with rhinestone and metal embellishments, pieces that were so stunning on their own you almost forgot they were being worn over lingerie on a supermodel.  Talk about a game changer.




Stars Harry Styles, Leslie Odom Jr., Miguel, and Chinese pianist Li Yundi rocked the runway while the models stomped to the beat in true rock-chick fashion.  Every year the VS designers up their game and this year was no exception, with the wings, thigh-high laced boots, exotic jewelry, carnivale costumes and headpieces that can only be described as decadent. 



Walking in her last show after a seventeen-year long career with VS, Alessandra Ambrosio took her final turn as an Angel to huge applause and love from her fans, as she moves on to new projects and adventures.  It’s hard to imagine the show without Alessandra, and she will be greatly missed.  The new crop of VS models some appearing in the show for the first time were star-struck walking alongside their idols like Adriana Lima, Jasmine Tookes, Sara Sampaio, Elsa Hosk, and Josephine Skriver. The fantasy bra honor went to Brazilian beauty Lais Ribero, to gasps of admiration from the audience. 



In one of the most heart-warming moments of the show Ming Xi proudly walking in front of her family and hometown stumbled on the runway, and like a true supermodel she gracefully rose, taking the hand of the sweetest of models Gizele Oliveira, and continued her walk smiling and winning the hearts and support of every person in the audience. 




The show has so many elements from supermodels, to international music artists, to extraordinary styling, that you see the whole package and not just the beautiful lingerie.  This year’s collection didn’t disappoint.  I know what’s on my Christmas list – do you?
