Skye Stracke

Being known for her pout, Skye Stracke has definitely caught my eye.

She is absolutely beautiful and I cant seem to get enough of her. She has the perfect amount of softness and innocence mixed with a sexy attitude! Although she is only seventeen she has already done shows with Chanel, D&G, and has been featured in magazines such as numero , teen vogue, Russian vogue, and the list really goes on and on.

I played MC2's little Holiday helper. I had to drive all around south beach and deliver champagne to all of our important clients. Giving it to them in person was really cool and it i met some very interesting people, some very intimidating but mostly i met some really good people. We celebrated Christmas at the office with Champagne and Cheese friday after noon. DELICIOUS
Thankfully I got time off from the office so that I could be with my family but before i left i had to get really organized and I set up about eight different photo shoots for eight different models. When I get back I am going to have so much to do.

New photo shoot with a really amazing photographer.
Pictures will be posted tomorrow! You must see them.

And what to expect.

I have been on both sides of an open call being that i started off wanting to be a model and now i actual book models. Open calls can be so scarey! You get so nervous and so worked up about meeting them and before you know it its all over.

First thing you should do is call all the agencies that you are interested in meeting with to find out what days and times they hold their open calls. Every agency is different.

When going to an open call you should bring pictures. If you have a portfolio, thats great! If you dont have a portfolio then just bring polaroids and simple snap shots of yourself. Just remember not to take anything too seriously and if they aren't pleasant with you its probably because they are just really busy. Sometimes people for open calls just seem to come in at the wrong time. When you get there someone will take your pictures or your portfolio and look at them in private and show the other agents while you just wait...up front or something. IF they like you they will have you come in , get measured , and take more digital pictures of you. You should always bring a swim suit with you to an open call!!!! If they dont like you, its no big deal. They will just tell you their not interested. When i went to my first open call with allison i was so nervous, we both were. We didnt even want to get out of the car and go in.

If you have the look they are wanting then you could get signed that day. Think that doesnt happen... just ask allison. The very day she went in for an open call she got a contract!

If one agency doesnt like you, dont give up! You might just be exactly what the next agency is looking for and then you will be on your way to success! haha well okay maybe you will finally have your foot in the door which is better than before.

Today in the office there were lots of people coming and going. I always love it when there are plenty of people to meet and talk too. I met a model today who is with out a doubt drop dead gorgeous but in person she was not like most models. Although her pictures were amazing there was something about her that was very different ... With the hieght of only 5'6.. i was amazed that she was discovered as a model. Dont get me wrong because i think that she is amazing but it was definitely a change to see such a short model. Meeting her gave me a lot of hope... i have always been told that i am too short... well thats not going to stand in my way anymore. This girl gets a lot of work and has been living in paris and traveling back and forth to a lot of other countries.One of the bookers turned to me today and told me " see if she can be a model , then you can too..."

After all the stress and planing the MC2 in Fashion Photo exhbit turned out to be a success.

Despite running around and still having to work, I had an amazing time. It was very Glarmorous. It was really funny because when I got there they couldnt find my name on the list... and I was like BUT I MADE THE LIST! how crazy is that... haha They actually lost the list and Jean Luc had to come and get us. Thank God all of the models made it there and on time... I was in charge of having a car pick them up. I new everyone at this event, it was amazing! This industry is crazy. When you love it you just really LOVE IT!

See Naomi Campbell in person was unbelievable. She just has this radiance to her and she looks like such a powerful woman. I was standing right next to her and I have to say I was a little star struck. I still get excited about famous people. There are so many people I talk to who are like yeah I saw so and so who is famous and its like no big deal to them. I guess im still like a kid when it comes to that stuff. I just love meeting new people and the artist that i admire and look up too. Now im not going to lie and say that i have been a big fan of Naomi all my life, because really I havent. She is a wonderful model but she has never really been one of my most favorite models.

Allison got booked for a Nike job!

How awesome is that? Basically, If I understand correctly she has to go to NIKE sales meetings and wear the NIKE apparel. She said its kind of like a Casual runway show. Sounds easy enough.

Whatever makes the money!

so living in the model apartments... is it really that great?

I was talking with one our models today and she was telling me she has been surprised by an unexpected model being in her model apartment on more than one occasion. She said today that when she left her apartment she remembered turning the light off to her bathroom... when she got back from shopping she noticed that the bathroom light was on. She went into the bathroom and there was a random girl standing in there doing her hair! The random new comer introduced herself and explained to the model currently living there that she was her new room mate. We constantly have girls coming in and out of town so this happens a lot. Imagine living some where and not having any control over who is going to be your room mate. Never knowing when someone would just come through the front door with their suit cases. Imagine not being able to understand the person you live with because of a language barrier...

By the way , models have the heaviest and biggest suit cases i have ever seen! :P

I was catching up with Sara Anne and here is what she had to say.

Victoria Secret fashion show 2008 Fountain Bleu
I tried i really did. I mean I put forth my best skinny intern skills and could not get into the victoria secret fashion at all... I was so close so many times! So many people I knew had tickets and back stage passes and they ended up not even using them! I cant believe that. Any time anyone would mention the show I was all ears. I wanted to go so bad. I at least wanted to go to the after party.

So many celebs were here in miami. Paris hilton/P didddy/Mariah Carey etc.

ugh i really missed out. I guess I can just watch it on tv though...

Nov 18, 2008

So... I went to a modeling convention. It was weird. Especially when I saw an agent there that I remember from seven years ago. Yes he was one of the agents at the model search i went to when i was younger. Honestly its really weird that I'm now a modeling agent. I always thought it would be cool to be one but never knew how to get to this point and some how it just happened. right place at the right time.

Its kind of sad being at the convention though because everyone has such high hopes and dreams of being a super star and a model but for majority of them its just not going to happen. You see girls cry and get all nervous... you see some people that get call backs from every agency. Its an interesting experience.

Im going to Destin, Florida for another model scout convention. I will be all on my own representing MC2. Im actually really excited about it though because I get to get away for the weekend and I get to take Allison of coarse. We are going to have a suite at a really nice hotel and Destin is a really nice place.

Nov 17, 2008

New pictures. YAY
androgynous is my thing.

Ive been so busy. Right now is the time to be in the business. The season has definently picked up!

I love meeting all the new models and clients. I love seeing Allison get booked for jobs and im glad to finally feel as if im getting respect around the office.

Nov 12, 2008

Test TEst TeST

Thats really what models should be doing if there isn't any work, unless the model already has a strong portfolio. Sometimes a new photo in a model's book equals a job with a client. You can tell when a model hasn't updated his/her portfolio in a while. Also the more tests the model does, the more practice he or she gets.

Sara Anne is a Model we signed a couple of months ago and she has taken it into her own hands to meet with photographers about doing Test shoots. This is really great because she is getting a lot of practice and a lot of great new images for her portfolio. She is definently a go getter! By her doing all of these photoshoots she is also networking and making connections , not only for herself but also for the agency. A normal week for Sara anne does not consist of laying on the beach waiting for a phone call from her booker, it actually consist of her doing as many shoots as she can. She is always shooting! She has had a shoot almost every day for the past two weeks.

Skinny Intern: "What would you say is your favorite thing about modeling and doing test?"
Sara Anne: "Everyone is relaxed. Everyone WANTS to be there and the focus is on obtaining a beautiful image that everyone is proud of."

I have to tell you about the shoot I was on last sunday!

It was amazing. Even though I wasnt the model, It was great to sit back and watch.

The model was from New york and is with MC2 and she is actually the owners favorite :P

I think that the pictures turned out great! Not only was the photographer amazing but the creative team was also fantastic. It was nice to get to sit and watch another model do a shoot. Everyone is different so its really cool to see how someone else does things.

Congrats! ... to ME :D

Its like im finally official. Today I got my own computer and my own desk area.

It was great to finally feel like i belonged there. So i spent the day nesting and setting up everything. Also... my agency recently invested in purchasing Nylon magazine... which is a magazine that I love... but they looked at it and hated it. I didnt understand! I was like "WHAT?! I love that magazine" They said to me " thats because your rock and roll, your just too rock and roll"

What? is that a bad thing? because im taking that as one hell of a compliment!


Oct 22, 2008

Another Job I have at MC2 is to take videos of the models so that we can send them to clients and casting directors. So of coarse i have to post this video of Allison even though she is going to kill me =D

Be careful what you wish for. =D

Friday I was at work and I was so bored. It was my first time working on a friday and it was just dragging. Im so use to three day weekends so it was hard to hang in there.

So I was at lunch on the phone with Allison and I was telling her that I hope that something really fun happens after lunch because I was going crazy...I didnt know how i was going to make it through the rest of my day with out falling asleep or something.
Anyways I went back to work after lunch and settled in at my desk. This model from Estonia came in and she was not having a good day because she had just flown in and all of her luggage was lost! She had nothing. So my job for the rest of the day was to take her shopping around Miami. I felt so relieved to get out of the office and I couldn't believe that my job consisted of taking a model Shopping! She was so cute with her little estonia accent. We talked about how long she had been modeling for ( only a year and she has been to Italy, Finland, Paris, and now America) and we compared the likes and differences of our countrys. It was very cool to hang out with someone from such a different culture and thats another thing that i like about my job.
So I took her up and down lincoln road so that she could shop and I also got to see the model apartments. Our model apartments are sweeeet!

By the time we got done shopping it was six o'clock. I had to run (litterally) back to the agency so that I could get my things before being locked out. Once I got there they were still waiting for me (so nice) thank God because I don't know what I would do if I had to leave my computer at the office for the entire weekend. I dont think that I could survive(haha)

So yeah, I spent half the day being bored and the rest of the day getting paid to have a blast!
I never know with this life.

The Most amazing compliment I've ever gotten.

I was on a shoot, just being myself and having fun!

All of sudden i hear them talking about this girl ....this girl named Agyness Deyn. Then I realized they were comparing me to her. I was so ecstatic! They told me, you know you have the personality of Agyness, which is the best compliment ever because I think that she is amazing and totally goofy.

Oct 17, 2008


Favorite magazine.(Thanks to Julious)

Most beautiful pictures Ive ever seen. Real Models.

Im so hooked to this French magazine... its just not even safe anymore. So inspirational.

Oct 16, 2008


Whats going on in the agency..????.

Models getting boob jobs with advanced money from the agency!(with out telling the agency)

Casting Directors contacting the models personally... big no no

Male Models that used to be strippers! we dont need to know that!!

Having to beg a model to go to africa for a job that pays $25,000... a DAY!

... wow

...lets get it together people


Um can i just say that i really want to own this entire outfit.
If I could walk up into MC2 wearing this... i think i would be taken more seriously...haha
Well okay this outfit might be a little more for the new york office because in the miami office its VERY casual. I would still wear it though :P and i would feel like such a badass.

freaking amazing...

hey guys sry its been so long since my last post :( so basically kristin mentioned everything about the richie rich fashion show but it was so freaking awesome that i have to reiterate some parts because of how freaking awesome they were!!!!!! ok we got there, i waited to get my makeup done. there were about 15 MAC employees standing in front of all this MAC make up laid out on like 6 tables. needless to say i wanted all of it :) ne ways the models were sitting in directors chairs as they got their makeup done. the set up was pretty cool. well after a little bit i got my makeup done which took a while but it was worth it. it looked amazing! and i know i say that a lot but i seriously mean AMAZING! hot pink lips, flawless face, and black and shiny white eye makeup. so pretty! then it was time for hair. which btw the lady who did my hair said that i was her favorite of the night. :) also kristin could have definitely gotten her hair and makeup done because everyone thought she was a model ne wayz.... that would have been cool. then the rain came :( it poured literally. but that didn't ruin our night nothing would have... about this time the bottles started poppin....hypnotic and champagne all night baby haha. we hung out for a while then kristin had to leave me which stunk :( but not for too long though b cuz they had us get in our first outfits soon. it was crazy backstage like kristin said a whole new experience and atmosphere. the clothes were electrifying, exuberant, and freaking fantastic! the accessories, the shoes...everything was!!!!! the show so fun! it is such an amazing feeling when your out on the runway. its like everyone is looking you and you know it but you cant see any faces. just dark all around you with a million flashes going off. plus a huge rush of intensity, excitement, nervousness, and question. you dont really know if your doing horrible or working it...its crazy haha. oh and a word of advice. runway floors most of the time suck. they are slippery. ne ways it was so fun and im so glad i have an amazing friend like kristin to come with me!! btw she is the best duh!

okay basically i have three shoots lined up for this weekend. So be prepared to see some pretty amazing shots from some newly found photographers. So far I have learned that every photographer is different and they dont always like what the last photographer may have liked... which is totally cool because this helps me Switch it up and try new things!

I just want to say this... photographers... you really got it hard. Even if someone likes your work doesn't mean they are going to pay you. I have definently witness this first hand being in the office. Amazing photographers will come in and ask to shoot and then the agents have them do tests so that they can see how they are... well two test turns into four ... which turns into like twelve or something! You really have to watch out because agencys try to get as many free pictures out of you as they can.

And yes thats in all caps because I dont know how else to express how amazing and exciting its going to be.
Are you still wondering what the hell im talking about???

okay short version. Allison is going to be in the Richie Rich Fashion show tomorrow night.

Longer version: So yesterday I was at the office working and I had to call the booker for the Heatherette fashion show and tell him that one of our models canceled because she had a family emergency. I really didnt want to do this but ... its part of the job.
So i called the guy up and told him what happened and he was so dissapointed. So just then I looked over to the wall of models and I
saw Allison's comp card and what happened next was unbelieavable... I just started talking like a pro! I was like "Yes well i do have this one girl who is available and she is the same size as the other model and is so outrageous her name is Allison zinn, would you like me to send you pictures of her because i think that she would be perfect!~"
.... he replied "....yes, send pictures of her over"

SO i sent him pictures of Allison and he loved her . So shes in the show! And she totally met Richie Rich today during the fitting. How amazing is that?!!

Hell yeah! Leah walked up in the office today( the lady that cast allison for all the fashion shows) and she was surprised to see me sitting there. She came in and pulled some comp cards off the wall of the girls that she wanted and then she came up to me and was like "you, be in my show" and i was like haha okaaaay... and then i realized she was serious and then she gave me the casting information! So Allison and I are both going to be in a fashion show together friday night. Its going to be amazing and its going to be my first fashion show.

Skinny Intern here!
Hey everyone i know its been a while. I have to say that not a lot has been going on otherwise you know i would fill you in on all the skinny! The agency has been really slow with fashion week finishing up in new york and everything ...we are just waiting for season to come.

I have to say this ... if you want to be a model please please please keep your hair looking nice. Thats my tip of the day for everyone. Agencys will rag on you so bad if your roots are bad or your hair is damaged. Honestly they will not let it go. We have been seeing a lot of photographers come in and out wanting to shoot our models but i have to say that usually i find way better photographers and the other agents agree.

I have a feeling that next week in the office is going to be pretty busy for me and everyone else. Im still trying to get the hang of it and i think that im doing a lot better. Sometimes you just have to dive right in. This weekend im doing a test and it should be a lot of fun.

Sep 19, 2008

So, I really have to post these pictures from the fashion show, it was so much fun. I think that everyone will get a kick out of looking at them. I took video too, but I always take forever to upload videos. But anyway, this is just some behind the scenes pictures of Allison's Fashion show at Dolce. The show was exciting and I stayed backstage to help her and the other models change clothes. One of the models didnt show up, so I was almost in the show! The director of the show came over to me and was like "can you walk?!" and I of course said yes and she was like "okay your in the show." I got so nervous but I was totally going to do it. Unfortunately, I ended up not being in the show because the model that didnt show...had the clothes...

Here is how the night went.

Lots of goofing off back stage, followed by Champayne and dancing!
I love fashion shows.
