Donna Feldman nominated to The Most Beautiful List
Israeli Supermodel Donna Feldman has been nominated to the most beautiful list, which names the 100 most beautiful women in the world. It’s no surprise that she is nominated to the list given the fact that she has been the face of several multi-million dollar ad campaigns. Donna has modeled for Christian Audigier Swimwear, Fila, Jaguar, Lucky Brand, Nautica, Bacardi and Revlon. An ad for Visa Black Card with Donna Feldman has been featured in almost every luxury magazine over the past two years. Donna has an extensive list of publications under her belt, including Esquire, GQ, Maxim and FHM.
MM’s Amelia Nightmare scores cover of Tattoo Life
Congratulations to Model Mayhem’s Amelia Nightmare on her recent cover of Tattoo Life. Not only is she a fantastic model, but she is also a make-up artist and hair stylist. The image on the cover was shot by Christian Saint. Amelia has had quite a few covers and we are definitely on the lookout for other great work from her down the road. We wish her all the best!
How to get into the modeling industry
Are you an aspiring model who would like to break into the modeling industry? If yes, then you may want to check out UKMA, a directory for modeling agencies in the UK which also offers modeling advice to new models. Although it is not necessary to spend hundreds of dollars on photoshoots, it is always better to pay a professional photographer to take some photos for your portfolio. Sometimes agencies and potential clients need to see what you are capable of as a model before they take you on, since the whole idea is for the agency to make money. However, it is very important not to fall victim to scams and portfolio mills, so it is crucial to do your research before spending your time and money.

Aussie models make world’s top 50
Beautiful blonde Australian Julia Nobis is the latest addition to the list of the world’s top 50 models. Since she was discovered by an agent two years ago her career has skyrocketed and she has become one of the top-earning catwalk stars. Getting discovered, however, has become very rare because there are thousands of girls knocking on agents’ doors trying to actively get signed. Right now more than ever, models have to work very hard and have the right attitude in addition to the right look to get signed. Julia Nobis is the fourth Australian model on the list. Also making the top 50 are Abbey Lee Kershaw at number 5, Miranda Kerr at number 10, and Ajak Deng at number 47.
Kaela Humphries: I feel “really blessed” to be modeling
Kaela Humphries is one of the very few people for whom success came quickly in this industry. It was not too long ago that she left her job of six years as a medical sales rep to take a leap of faith and accept a contract with Ford Models in their plus division. The best part of her story is that she understands that modeling is a privilege and not a right, and she’s willing to work for it. Kaela does not act like she is entitled to success in the industry, which is a great attitude to have. She stated that she feels really blessed to be doing this and that she understands that success like hers does not happen for most people that quickly.
