As I recall, Arlenis Sosa wasn't discovered. Didn't she just walk into a modeling agency and got signed at the spot?

Guinevere Van Seenus doesn't have a discovery story either. From portfoliopad.com:

Quote:
Guinevere Van Seenus was born in Washington D.C. and moved to Santa Barbara, CA during
her freshman year of high school. She joined a local modeling school and modeled part-time
until she relocated to Paris to pursue her career full time.

^No, not at all.
Being discovered is just that.....someone spots you/scouts you out of the blue.
Entering a contest, well you therefore are asking/wanting to be a model.
.......my take anyways

I think friends of her sent her photos to the judges.

If being in a modeling contest were to count, then Denisa Dvorakova and Francis Lane might have been self-starters. But I've always assumed that people who participated in big modeling contests were in some sense maybe "recruited" to participate, and/or had previous modeling experience... and were therefore possibly discovered beforehand. Maybe it depends on the individual participant. I guess I don't really know what getting involved in them entails.

And even though it's not the same as being scouted, I don't feel that a relative or friend submitting someone's pictures to an agency or "volunteering" them for the job exactly counts.. I guess that kind of circumstance is sort of a gray area.

^ then why Denisa always shows the "I don't care about this at all." face if she did volunteer to do modeling?

Rasa Zukauskaite wasn't discovered, her sister sent her pictures to the agency in Lithuania.

If it weren't for her sister, Rasa Zukauskaite could still be aiming for a career in engineering instead of becoming the face of Prada.
