That's such an interesting one! I am always curious to know if models scout other girls into being models. I'm sure there more than a few stories, but I just find it so funny that a girl can learn so much about what it takes to be a model that they can "scout" other girls. Really cool actually.

Who would have better baseline than current/former succesfull model for scouting? By this I don`t mean all of them could be scouts, but the basis are good. They see hundread of models, they know what it takes professionally, physically and mentally, they know how the business goes and which kinds of girls could have a chance. Plus they travel all the time and have good networks.

Kasia
Quote:
She might have sent in her photo to a local model competition as a joke, but Kasia Struss has been a part of the tight knit circle of the models-to-follow since her appearance in Vogue Paris April 2008. Five years later, the Polish beauty hasn’t lost the cheerful, carefree charm seen within the Balmain collections look books, and laughing backstage with her model friends, Hanne Gaby Odiele and Jacquelyn Jablonski. For April 2013, Kasia Struss embodies the Peruvian mountain style at the gates of Cuzco for photographers Claudia & Stefan in the Miss Vogue edit.

I absolutely love Kasia but the whole 'as a joke' thing is a bit of an eye roller

^I literally rolled my eyes when I read that sentence They all say that, maybe they don`t want to sound arrogant (you know, seem like they think too highly of themselves and sending pics to the agency by themselves).

those aren't Kasia's own words, though, the original French version only claims that she tried her luck in a local modeling contest "without much hope", or something along those lines.

so i believe what they really mean is that she sent in the photos on a whim, not expecting it to lead anywhere

Yeah, the French translation wasn't 100 percent on point, I'm sure they just added that for effect.

Karen Mulder
Quote:
When Karen was 17, she was looking through a magazine and noticed details of a modelling contest in Amsterdam. Karen wore braces on her teeth at that time and dismissed the idea immediately. However, unknown to her, a friend entered Karen without her knowledge. Karen was invited by the agency to attend the competition and she won.
Quote:
She took part in the 1985 Elite Look of the Year contest and came second, after which she was signed by Elite Paris.
