Erin Brady, Miss Connecticut, crowned Miss USA 2013
Erin Brady, or Miss Connecticut, won the 2013 Miss USA crown. 25-year old Brady, a finance major from Central Connecticut State University, works as an accountant but will be giving that up for her new role as Miss USA.
Miss Utah’s Marissa Powell managed to steal some of the morning headlines after her unfortunate attempt to answer a question on income inequality.
Ana Braga in Playboy Brazil
We want to congratulate Model Mayhem’s Ana Braga on her recent 10-page feature in Playboy Brazil. After being published in Playboy Romania a while back, many doors have been opening for her, especially in the Playboy family! Here is what Ana had to say about it: “I feel very honored and super lucky to come out in Playboy Brazil. They did a phone interview with me about my modeling career in the US and also my professional dancing when I performed with Lil John and Pitbull! I am really having fun without any pressure now. All dreams have been achieved!”
Leah Jung on cover of Tatowier Magazin
Model Mayhem’s Leah Jung recently landed the cover of Tatowier Magazin. It’s Germany’s oldest tattoo magazine. Leah has been published in numerous other magazines. She is becoming more and more well known internationally as an alternative model. We believe that she will continue to do well and we look forward to seeing more of her published work.
Irina Ansell in Koncept Magazine
Model Mayhem’s Irina Ansell is published in Koncept Magazine this month. She stated that it was a very fun shoot with Gilbert which combined glamour and fashion. Irina has been working hard over the last few months. Her star is rising and it’s great to see!
MM’s Jen on the runways at 47
When most people think of runway models, they usually think of girls aged 15-20 doing fashion shows. However, Model Mayhem’s Jen is living proof that it doesn’t have to be that way. She just turned 47 and has been shooting since last February. At 46, while living in Alaska, she was able to walk in a Couture show at the Jimmy Crystal Showroom in NYC. She credits the fact that she is on Model Mayhem and designer Danny Nguyen for the opportunity. Jen also added that she has two very large tattoos which did not stop her from taking advantage of this big break. You can watch some of the show on YouTube.
Kate Upton’s photo before fame
Ever wondered what Kate Upton looked like before she became super famous? This article in The Inquistr shows a photo of Kate before she entered superstardom. Prior to becoming famous, she was just another young girl working hard at trying to make it in the industry. Although her earlier photos showed potential, it wasn’t until much later that she gained fame. In fact, some people did not think that she was agency model material. However, one agent believed in her and took the time to properly market her image.
