Top 50! in Just!Proud!

I got an email notification today that I made it to the top 50 in the Just!Proud Fashion Brand Contest based on votes. Thank you!! If you haven’t voted for me to be the face of this revolutionary little brand, please vote here. Voting ends NOV 18.

From there you can link to FB, Digg, stumbleupon, twitter etc., if you so choose.

Here is my motivation statement:  “I love fashion as an art form and as an empowerment tool. People should be free to express themselves through fashion, regardless whether they fit into a stereotype of ‘traditional’ beauty. Plus modeling & posing is much fun!! Cameras love me!”

A little more information about Just!Proud ~~ it’s not just for models, it’s for fashion-lovers, designers, photographer and anyone who aspires to make an impact through fashion & design art. It’s a grassroots, but international idea. Contestants in the modeling contest represented 24 countries!

You do have to created a login to vote. This is simply so they can track and make sure no one votes more than once. After that, you don’t have to participate if you don’t want to .. but there will also be ambassador roles and the community will play a big role in the direction of this brand  via discussions & forums etc. …

So please check it out –>

Just!Proud Fashion contest

A new international, community-driven [read: social media] fashion brand is emerging on the ‘interwebs’. It’s called Just!Proud.



I entered the contest to be the ‘face’ of this brand because it seems to me to represent a new way of thinking in the fashion & modeling industry. I view fashion as an empowerment tool, allowing people to express themselves. I like that Just!Proud doesn’t have the ‘prereqs’ for their models ~ i.e.  have to be a certain height & weight. It seems much more democratic – fashion by the people, for the people. 😀   Appeals to the idealist in me ..

So, please vote for me!! –>

The winner represents this new fashion brand internationally for once year. Sort of like a Ms. America … but it depends on YOU!
