Models on Parade ~ Phoenix Fashion Week

I am no model.

I'm about 5'3" and I have no experience. Although, I do think I have a pretty good runway walk. But my position as a Style Team member for Phoenix Fashion Week allowed me to participate in a model search for the upcoming fashion show in October.

Basically, I made sure the models got their head shots, were lined up correctly and were properly styled for the designer shoots. Here are some photos of what I've been up to.

More than 150 models auditioned to be a part of the top 40 who will walk in the October fashion show. We selected 30 girls and 10 guys for the event.

Here are a few of the models doing a shoot for designer Mabella Chic.

At the Model Announcement event, Cassie was the winner of the head shot challenge. Just look at those cheek bones!

And I just had to include this photo. This is a model (not one of the top 40) who was at the model announcement event wearing this dress and hat made entirely of balloons.

~The Top 40~

What do you think?
Also, a big THANK YOU to everyone who voted for me in the Style a Shape contest!
And I was featured as a Style Muse on Muse Origins so go check it out!

Love all the pics! Wish I could have gone. Looks like quite a fun day. All the models are gorgeous. I'm guessing that balloon dress should only be worn if you plan on standing all night?? :)
