Model Behavior

I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m hooked on a bunch of reality TV shows. My top choices are the design shows — Project Runway and Design Star are both very special — and cooking shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Top Chef aren’t far behind. Between the designing and the cooking, though, is the modeling: America’s Next Top Model.

I am hooked on ANTM, and that addiction has extended to a furious devouring of all things modelish. I’ve even been known to watch Australia’s Next Top Model between seasons. The drama, the clothes, the challenges…I love it all. I especially love that this past season the winner of ANTM was a plus-sized model.

If you’re like me and love watching the drama behind the scenes of the fashion industry, don’t despair because the ANTM season is over and Project Runway has yet to begin: there’s been an influx of teen titles all about modeling and fashion lately! Here are a few to get you started.

Violet’s always been too tall, skinny and gawky to stand out, until she’s discovered in a movie theater by a modeling agent. Then she stands out in a big way.

Enjoy!
