Be a the next new fashion star
New faces are needed to grace the Star-Bulletin Style pages, so we are launching a model search for those who want to be discovered -- male, female, young and not so.
Those without agency affiliation can submit a headshot and full-body shot true to your current appearance by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Friday's the deadline. Or send photos by snail mail to: Model search, Honolulu Star-Bulletin, 7 Waterfront Plaza Suite 210, Honolulu 96813. Photos will not be returned.
Include 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, 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!
