Fashion & Modeling today could not be any more exciting, It seems that everyone from designers to consumers took a long break with no real direction or style and now Its Back , bigger and better than ever, From pin up to gothic to Jackie Kennedy.... Style is all around us and anything goes. But whats really fun is when your the mall and that one ,, you know that one girl has the courage to do it different,, all eyes are on her,, and its catching on.

Break lose girls , have some fun, ditch the jeans their over rated, and uncomfortable..

New York Kids is coming up fast, and it will be a great experience for all those kids going to new York to model. Living and working the New York Market for a summer is amazing,The Kids and moms go from go see to go see, by the end of the first month their calender is full with jobs, photo shoots, runway, print for catalogs, 

By the end of the day mom and child are exhausted and success has happened on a level they never expected. 

yes its big bucks , but its alot of work.

Hi its stephanie with your tip of the day!  Spring Trends,  imaginations run wild this season with vivid florals , sugary pastel, and patterns with atribal vibe a fashion free-for-all....  and designes are on fertile ground with vibrant flowes and retro shapes.  Ruffles flapper-friendly tiers and small casade from neckline to knee.   Faded Psatels  strike a balance between modern silhouettes and antique-washed colors.   and that is your tip of the day!!

Hi Everyone,

I told of the role in the Tyler Perry movie, well it has been delayed because of some of the cast couldn't be there to begin. So when it does get taping I will keep you up to par on that journey with me.

One short set back but that is all good and in the modeling and acting world set backs always happen just can't let it discourage you in anyway. Any of you have any up coming journeys would love to hear about them.

Update and Insight

Hi Everyone,

Found out the call that I told you about in my last blog. It is on the 3rd. of June at the orlando convention center at 6pm. So girls try to get to it and hopefully I will see you there. Hair modeling isn't glamorous but it brings in some needed money to live on till you get that glam job.

Plus you get to model the style in front of many and get photos for your portfolio, which we all know can help get that next bigger job. Also who can turn down free product. The chances of getting other jobs from the professionals at the show is very likely.  So put on your best face and strut yourself, it's worth it.

When a Modeling agency sends you out on a go see and you get the same call for a go see from another agent your with, Whats the DEAL?

Its normal , in a market that does not demand exclusive agreements to be with a agent. The clients work with usually 2-3 agents in every market to fill their needs.So when you see postings online and another agent or casting company has them , no worries  its normal.

Do I like it NO. But thats what you get in small markets, less professional than what I would like to see, In my  opinion it ruins the market and and is a detriment to the talent and their earnings. You don't have the classy feel of the industry that you would find in NY, Paris, Miami or LA., if the agents made you sign exclusive agreements, Top clients would know they were getting qualified applicants/talent. And it allows for the agents to keep the booking $ consistent

I was reading up on some blogs around the country, the Modeling / TV/ Film & Print industry and It was a little disheartening on some of the posts That talent posted about their experiences. 

In every persons life their are basic needs, Food, Shelter , Clothing etc. It is no different in this industry, Agents, Casting Directors, employers & talent all share the same need to make a living, and the illusion that a agent or casting company is going to go find jobs for people book them for free is a fantasy. This is the hardest industry in the world to make a living at at for both talent and agency, Most jobs that are billed and not paid for 60 days, the 10-20% we make is a tough go when your starting out, again for both talent and agent.  If you are the right look, height or extreamly  talented and get picked up by a top agent then its simple, you get booked, agent takes a %, But what about the short girl,the talent in Idaho, the housewife that always wanted to be in a Mr Clean commercial?  Or the client that wants a talent or beautiful girl and can't pay the 3500 booking fee for a day for the new faces of Ford or Elite? Thats were the online companies come in, Affordabilaty, get seen by agents and casting companies around the world even if you live in Idaho. For $10-30 a month. no booking fees, no commissions , the talent wins and the client saves money.Get booked direct A shoot that pays $1000 @ 20% = $200 in commissions, one job? vs getting seen for a year online?

He Everyone,

Coming to you to share with you all that I just recently got called for an audition, In a feature film called 'Release'. It's a little part but when it comes to modeling or acting there are no little parts just little people playing the parts. Which in our world terms, it's a foot in the door that can lead to bigger and better jobs. 

So girls keep dreaming and your dreams will come true and always be prepared for anything that may be coming your way. Are dreams are what kicks our buts through life to gain the ultimate out come which is? Well that question is different for everyone and only you can answer that.

hey it's stephanie with your tip of the day !!        to prepare for your upcoming   modeling shoot give your hair glossy highlights with a citrus conditioning mix!  squeeze the juices of one lemon, lime, and orange together in a spray bottle, then mix in a dollop of conditioning and shake it up. spritz on wet hair (just from midlength  to ends for the most natural highlighted look), and comb  through. leave in for 30min then rinse. and that your tip for the day!!

Successful actress, singer and a CoverGirl, and now the multi-talented star is adding designer to her resumé with a new clothing line. The Queen Collection. This is going to be great She is a Great  model, and I love her clothing too. She singles out the chic, leather handbags she created as a favorite from the collection — for personal reasons. “I have a bag fetish,” she confesses. “I’ll have on sweatpants and a $3000 purse. I don’t deny myself, bags are the one thing I’ll allow myself to splurge on.” “I definitely want to be able to rock my bag. I figured, if I can rock it, why shouldn’t other people be able to?” The Queen Collection, including outerwear, will be available beginning August 27. Fashion comes in all forms so good luck Queen Latifah ! This just goes to show that talent is created through the love of creation!

I am a huge fan of his I love his work! Recently there is a great book out called Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty by Andrew Bolton Shortly before the McQueen tribute at the Met gala, critics questioned the place of fashion in a venue dedicated to art.
