MEET THE V & FORD MODEL SEARCH FINALISTS!

HERE'S SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT—AFTER SO MUCH SUCCESS WITH THE VMAN & FORD MODEL SEARCH, V WANTED IN ON THE ACTION. OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, OUR FIRST V & FORD MODEL SEARCH ATTRACTED BEAUTIFUL WOMEN FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, INVITING THEM TO APPLY FOR AN OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME


The road here was a long one, paved with selfies. Picking three finalists from thousands of fun, funny and fresh submissions was a struggle, to say the least, but we can at least say we're confident that the girls we went with are simply gorgeous, and not only on the outside. Pick up V87, on stands in January 16th, 2014, to see these finalists in a fashion story photographed by Kacper Kasprzyk. Plus: find out the winner!

Click through the slideshow and read below to meet our finalists: Iesha, Angelica and Rachelle.


IESHA

Q: If you could walk for any designer living or dead, who would it be?
A: Alexander McQueen. His shows were one of a kind. As a model you weren’t just wearing the latest designs for his collection, you were wearing pieces of art.
 
Q: What’s your first fashion memory?
A: Playing dress-up in my mom’s closet. I remember playing in her makeup, trying on her dresses, and wearing her pocketbooks all around the house, then trying to put everything back just the way it was so I wouldn’t get caught. Eventually, I did get caught. My mom is just that good!
  
Q: What’s your favorite song of 2013?
A: That would have to be “Too Much” by Drake. It’s one of my favorites from his new album. The song is very calming and always reminds me not to overthink any situation and sometimes to accept things as they are.
 
Q: Favorite movie of 2013?
A: My favorite movie of all time is Twilight! The entire series is amazing. I love the cast and I love how I can watch Breaking Dawn or The Eclipse and never get tired of seeing them.
 
Q: Which team are you on?
A: Team Jacob all the way! 

Q: What is your beauty advice for the cold winter months?
A: Embrace the coldness! Wear moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated and moisturized! Also drink warm or hot fluids, and most of all, layer up!
 
Q: How are you planning to celebrate New Year’s Eve?
A: I’m going to bring in the New Year at church with my family and then dinner at home. It’s what I do every year!
 
Q: What is your New Year’s resolution?
A: To perfect my craft, and to become a better writer.

ANGELICA
 
Q: If you could walk for any designer, who would it be?
A: I would love to walk for Versace.

Q: What’s your first fashion memory? 
A: Being eight and going into my mother's room and trying on all her fancy dresses.
 
Q: What is your favorite thing to wear during the winter? 
A: Big, oversized jumpers! They look cute and are also very warm and cozy.
 
Q: What’s your favorite song of 2013?
A: Taylor Swift, "I Knew You Were Trouble."
 
Q: What’s you favorite movie of 2013?
A: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire. 
 
Q: Who’s your celebrity crush?
A: Ian Somerhalder.
 
Q: Any beauty tips for our readers?
A: Always look after yourself and your skin and be confident and it will shine through.
 
Q: How are you planning to celebrate New Year’s Eve?
A: Go see some fireworks! 
 
Q: What is your New Year’s resolution?
A: Eat better, take care of myself and have fun.

RACHELLE
 
Q: What’s your first fashion memory?
A: To be quite honest, when I was a kid, I was anything but fashionable. Once, when I was just about eleven years old, at the start of summer, long after my mother had given up on telling me what to wear, I left the house wearing a pair of shorts, a pair of gumboots, a fleece zip-up sweater and a pair of earmuffs. (This incident gave me the nickname "Gumboot" for years to come after). Even though I was wearing all four seasons, I hadn't a care in the world. I was proud of who I was, and though my eye for style has grown since then, I'm still proud of who I am today.
 
Q: How did your style change?
A: At the start of high school, I was a little eccentric. Once, when I was a freshman, for a school dance, I wore white fishnets, bright pink leg warmers, a pink bandeau, highlighter short shorts, cardigan and headband to match, and a knitted white mesh shirt. Not only was my outfit bright and attention grabbing, I had decided to doll my eyes in every color of the rainbow and sported rainbow lips as well. It was pretty out there, but that's me.
 
Q: If you could walk for any designer, who would it be?
A:  Victoria’s Secret. To be an Angel, holy mac, a definite dream come true.
   
Q: What’s your favorite song of 2013?
A: "Here's To Never Growing Up," by Avril Lavigne, and "I Choose U," by Timeflies.
 
Q: Favorite movie of 2013?
A: I have yet to see The Hobbit, Desolation of Smaug, but I am convinced it will be my favorite movie of the year. Runner up would have to be Catching Fire
 
A: Who is your celebrity crush?
Q: Benedict Cumberbatch—Sherlock Holmes in BBC's Sherlock (the third season is coming out in January; I am literally counting down the days.)
 
A: Any beauty tips for readers?
Q: Don't be afraid to be the e.e. cummings of fashion. Break the rules and relish in it, because I mean, what is fashion if not a boundless art form?
  
Q: How are you planning to celebrate New Year’s Eve?
A: Confessions of a fangirl: I'll be watching seasons one and two of BBC's Sherlock in preparation for the third season's premiere New Years Day. Seriously if you haven't yet watched that show, get on it.  It is so beautiful I could cry.
