Melissa "MJ" Johannsen
I'm intrigued by this girl She's 15 years old from Alice Springs, Australia. She won the Finesse Colonnades International Model Search competition while on a shopping trip to Adelaide last month. She has signed with Finesse Adelaide, Vivien's Sydney and Wilhelmina New York. Source: frockwriter

She's 5'11, but I can't seem to find much on her

According to frockwriter she has a whole speard in the Sunday Mail (adelaide's sunday paper)... I am and Adelaide girl so on Sunday I'll be sure to upload some scans. Can't wait to see her at the Adelaide Fashion Festival. Can't believe she's only been modelling for around 10 days, crazy

Wilhelmina overload in New York! With Perth-native Dempsey Stewart presenting herself at Richard Chai Love today, fabulous Chloe gracing two pages in the new Love issue and Melodie Monrose being the only ethnic girl at BCBG we are more than curious to find out which girl of the magic package is currently still flying under the radar but has big things in store for the coming weeks as well.
Checking out their Image Division once more, MJ from Alice Springs is definitely what we would consider to be a future attention getter. Incredibly versatile and expressive in print, MJ is said to be getting a great response on the strength of her pure & silent beauty and nordic elegance.
This sixteen-year-old Aussie knows how to sell her looks and how to turn every model spotter's head, make sure to see her brand new testing results from New York!

Go MJ go!!!! YAY!!!! This is sooo exciting. We photographed Mj for our latest lookbook just before she left for NY and she is an absolute darling, she deserves all the success in the world. Hailing from Alice Springs (the desert) in central Australia she is so down to earth and was a real pleasure to work with. MJ has a gigantic future ahead of her and it seriously couldn’t happen to a nicer person!!!! Wooohoooo, we heart you MJ, mwah mwah mwah xxd
