As iconic models who have earned millions, there’s no denying that Naomi Campbell and Karlie Kloss are major, major bosses. And guess what? For each crazy-successful woman, it all started in a mall. Now you can live out your own “discovered at the mall” dreams as fashion retailer Torrid launches its third annual Torrid model search and casting call, coming to a mall near you.
The Torrid 2018 Model Search tour kicks off in SoCal at Del Amo Fashion Center. The brand says it’s looking for, “confident, sexy and fearless women who wear sizes 10-30” and will consider women 18 or over. Applicants will model live for a panel of judges, who will help select the top ten finalists of the competition. And these aren’t just any judges. Project Runway winner Ashley Nell Tipton and celebrity makeup artist Priscilla Ono will help pick finalists, along with IMG model Candice Huffine, who will serve on the panel at the LA live casting.
“I’m most looking forward to the mentoring aspect of the model search. I know these women are confident and brave just by entering the search, so I want to enhance that and enable them to express their individuality and feel unstoppable,” Huffine said in a release.
The winner of the North American search (announced in January 2018) will earn a Torrid modeling contract and wardrobe; host Torrid store openings and events as a brand ambassador; star in seasonal fashion campaigns; and appear on the brand’s social media channels throughout the year. Bam! Body confidence has never been more lucrative.
