Be a fashion 'Star'
New faces are needed to grace the Star-Bulletin Style pages throughout the year, so we are launching a model search for those -- male, female, young and not so -- who want to be discovered.
Those without agency affiliation can submit a head shot and full-body shot true to your current appearance by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 6. Or, send photos by snail mail to Model search, Honolulu Star-Bulletin, 7 Waterfront Plaza, Suite 210, Honolulu, HI 96813. Photos will not be returned.
Include the following information: height, dress or shirt size, availability and phone number.
Those selected will be invited to a casting call, where the local designers behind Fighting Eel will also be seeking a female model for the company's Spring 2008 catalog.
The Fighting Eel winner will receive a photo shoot with Rona Bennett and will be featured in this paper and on the Fighting Eel Web site, as well as receive a five-piece Fighting Eel wardrobe valued at up to $750. We'll be watching for you!
New face of aloha
Tommy (pronounced Tammy) Hobbs (above) is the new face of Aloha Street, a company whose Web site, aloha-street.com, and Japanese- language magazine keeps Japanese visitors informed before, during and after their visits to Hawaii.
The 17-year-old Iolani School student replaces previous model and University of Hawaii graduate Caitlin Edwards, whose nine-year association with Aloha Street made her a celebrity in Japan.
Tommy fit the bill of a multinational model with a fresh look who would appeal to Japanese women making travel plans for their families.
