Modeling news roundup

This week’s highlights: Nordstrom hires paraplegic model for upcoming campaign; MM’s Red Electro shot for TG4 in Ireland; MM’s Amber Reyne, Lauren WK and Priscilla Caripan score magazine features.
Nordstrom hires paraplegic model for upcoming campaign
A big congratulations to Model Mayhem’s Angela Rockwood for being selected to be a part of Nordstrom’s upcoming ad campaign. What’s amazing about Angela’s story is that even a tragic car accident that caused her to become paraplegic has not stopped her from success in the industry. Nordstrom is a large retailer known for using models with disabilities in their advertising campaigns, and using Angela reflects very well on the company. Angela’s road to recovery has been nothing short of inspirational, and we wish her the best.
MM’s Red Electro shot for TG4 in Ireland
Model: Red Electro; Director: Brian Williams
Model Mayhem’s Red Electro (Sophie Merry) recently shot an indent for TG4, an Irish television channel. She has been modeling for a long time and has been involved with many print editorials and advertising campaigns. Sophie had a few things to say to MM about the shoot: “We shot it in a lake in the country. Brian Williams, the director, wanted me to move fluidly while giving off an energy of someone who had been on a journey and arrived to find her family again (the swans). It’s based on ‘The Children of Lir’ (an old Irish fable), but the cracked white and earthy makeup and textured black eye gave it a modern look. The MUA Julie Caulfield and I had some space to explore options, which was great!”
MM’s Amber Reyne in Southern Vixens Magazine
Model: Amber Reynne
Congratulations to Model Mayhem’s Amber Reynne, who was recently featured in Southern Vixens Magazine. Here is what she has to say about being published: “Networking is the best way to get published. Get to know magazines and other models on Facebook. Models can find magazine and publisher websites just from browsing likes of fellow models and simply contact the magazine! Magazines will usually have simple instructions on how to submit, and any model can do it. That’s what I’ve done.” We look forward to seeing more features from Amber!
MM’s Priscilla Caripan in Maxim en Español
A big congratulations to Model Mayhem’s Priscilla Caripan, who has eight pages in the September 2012 issue of Maxim en Español. Eikona shot the photos while Ivy Lam provided makeup, hair and wardrobe. In addition to being featured in Maxim, Priscilla is also a Playboy model and has been published in American Curves Magazine.
MM’s Lauren WK in Orlando Style
Congratulations to Model Mayhem’s Lauren WK on her recent feature in Orlando Style. MIDNIGHT EXPRESS took the photo and also did the hair and makeup. We are sure that we will see more features from Lauren very soon.
