Model Crush Monday – Alanna Arrington

It has been an extraordinarily life-changing year for 18 year old Alanna Arrington from Iowa.  After a breakout show season where she both opened and closed shows during her first ever fashion week, walking in the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and fronting a campaign for Stella McCartney, Alanna has gone from mid-western teen to international model in a giant leap. 

Scouted at a drop in go-see at age fifteen by the scouting duo of Mother Model Management, modeling had not really been on Alanna’s radar, other than comments from friends and family that she was tall and lean and it might be an option.  Her first ever trip out of the country was to London Fashion Week, following a whirlwind week in NYC doing shows. 

Like many models before her, Alanna’s star turn came by way of a career-altering haircut.  Normally rocking long curls, she took a chance and let her hair be cut up to a shorter length, followed by bangs and a few more inches off, and voila, she had the look of the season that made her stand out.  Her ethnic ambiguity makes her unique and gives her broad appeal across demographics, and has quickly made her a favorite of designers, editors and photographers.

Considering all she has accomplished in such a short time, it’s hard to remember that she is just now breaking out into the model of the moment.  Almost daily, she appears in new international campaigns and editorials, and is set to be a fixture on the show circuit.   Regardless, she is still a teen at heart wanting to sing, dance, play basketball, and devour Harry Potter novels.  There is so much awaiting this beauty!  This girl is on her way.

Model Crush Monday - Dutch Beauty Romee Strijd

Natural beauty Romee Strijd isn’t new to the modeling world, but at 21 years old she is breaking out to be one of 2017’s hottest models in the business.  At 5’11”with fresh girl-next-door looks along with a sexy-sporty body, Romee was an obvious choice for Victoria’s Secret, becoming an Angel in age 19, appearing in the catalogues and most notably in the VS runway show. 

Approached by an agent at age 13, Romee was too shy to pursue a career in modeling, but by age 15 she had spent enough time streaming the Victoria’s Secret shows on her computer and practicing her own runway walk, that she was eager to give the business a try.  After two years of modeling, traveling and missing teenage life, she returned home to finish school.  After graduation she was back to work where she quickly caught the eye of designers and editors who cast her in the top shows and magazine editorials.  Timing is everything and a model has to be ready for the industry just as the industry has to be ready for her particular look. 

Romee loves to work out and does weight training, cross training and barre classes with her fellow VS models.  Her love of fitness makes her a natural for Victoria’s Secrets VSX Sports line of athletic wear.  She proves that a healthy, fit body is far sexier than a rail thin figure in her recent Maxim magazine spread shot by the legendary Gilles Bensimon.

At just 21 years old, fresh, sexy, sporty Romee will be on the industry radar for years to come.

Model Crush Monday – Sports Illustrated Swimwear Edition 2017 Rookie Lais Ribero

Brazilian supermodel Lais Ribero has been announced as one of Sports Illustrated Swimwear Edition's Rookies for 2017, a star turn that is sure to cement her ranking as one of the most in-demand models of the moment.  At 6’1” and 26 years old, this striking Amazonian beauty with curves that don’t quit, appearing in the coveted swimwear issue is a giant leap forward in an already stellar career, assuring that if she isn't already, she soon will be a household name. 

Lais works regularly for Victoria’s Secret and has walked in their show since 2010, making her one of the brand’s most bankable models.  Swimwear and lingerie aside, Lais has walked dozens of runways and appeared in international editions of Vogue, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar, shooting with the most influential designers, editors and photographers in the business. 

With one million followers on Instagram, her feed is playful and fun not to mention sexy, as she shares photos from her recent work and plenty of animated behind-the-scenes shots with her fellow VS models and photographers. 

2017 is shaping up to be a breakout year for this South American beauty – we are sure she won’t stay a Sports Illustrated Rookie for long!  She is guaranteed to become a fan favorite - not bad for a woman who only thought about modeling after having a child. Lais is one hot mama!
