WESTFIELD – Are you one of New Jersey’s next top models? As a prelude to Fashion & Beauty Week 2011, event sponsor Lord & Taylor announced plans to host a runway model search on Thursday, Aug. 25 to discover the freshest new face ready to make the big time.
The model search is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Lord & Taylor in Westfield. Applications will be available at all Central and North Jersey Lord & Taylor locations or online (www.lordandtaylor.com) under news and events Westfield. All applications must be received at the Westfield store by Monday, Aug. 22.
The runway model contest is open to females, age 16-35. No prior modeling experience is necessary. Contestants will be asked to bring a dress and high heels, be runway ready with hair and makeup, and bring a smiling face and positive attitude. A panel of celebrity and industry judges, including Fashion & Beauty Week founder Jack Panico, a top Lord & Taylor executive and Real Housewives of New Jersey Kathy Wakile will choose one model to represent Lord & Taylor at the Fashion & Beauty Week event on Oct. 3 and 4 at the Pleasantdale Chateau in West Orange. Judges are looking for that stand out runway presence – someone beautiful who can command the runway as the ultimate model.
“New Jersey is establishing itself as a fashion leader with all different eclectic and trendsetting styles,” said Michelle Cousoulis, GM, Lord & Taylor, Westfield. “This model search will showcase the amazing new talent in this region. It’s a great way for aspiring models to break into the business and get discovered.”
