I remember Lily's story. She was with a friend that day! I wonder how jealous her friend must be.

^ Lol, I know the scout was probably trying to pull her away and the poor friend must have felt very left out.

Close enough...she won in a similarly themed modeling show called Mallikoulu (model school)...but it wasn't a Top Model franchise...


Irina Kulikova was discovered by Liv Tyler...I think I saw that in FTV model's talk or something...


ETA: Oh wait, I read it in Irina K's nymag profile...Liv and an IMG scout spotted her in the restaurant they were eating and they immediately had her flown to New York...

Marina Pérez

Quote:
Llegó al mundo de la moda a los once años de la mano de su madre, que fue quien le animó a posar para catálogos y anuncios.

Vogue.es.-: ¿Cómo aprendió a ser modelo?
Marina Pérez.-: Nunca aprendí un método ni fui a una escuela de modelos. Absorbí todo lo que sé viendo la tele y fijándome mucho. Soy muy observadora y enseguida capto lo que me interesa. Así que mi carrera no ha seguido el orden lógico.

She came at the fashion world when she was 11, motivated by her mother, who encouraged her to appear on catalogs and advertisements.

Vogue.es.-: How did you learn to be a model?
Marina Pérez.-: I didn't learn any method to be a model nor I didn't go to a fashion school. I learnt everything what I know watching TV and being meticulous about detail. I'm very observant and I catch inmediately what I'm interested in, so my career has not followed any logical order
