MIM Models ‘Fresh Faces’ Search
Following my appearance at the launch of Ladies Who Lunch, I took MIM Models up on their offer to be a guest judge in their Fresh Faces Model Search held at the St. Laurent Shopping Centre.

I absolutely loved Reneé and Erica’s shoes!
Not to mention, Sophie’s nail polish and accessories…
The event was hosted by stylist Erica Wark and finalists competed in four categories: Teen, Kids, Lifestyle, and International, with the winners—Vivian, Jacob, Bonnie, and Clea—receiving a full modeling contract from MIM.

There was tons of excitement and laughs all around as Jacob, the winner of the Kids division, stole the showcase with his big personality.
Aside from myself, the judging panel included photographer Joel Bedford, his girlfriend stylist Justyna Baraniecki, model agents Nadia from Montage & Cynthia from Spot 6, Ottawa Citizen Style Magazine editor Jennifer Campbell (pictured below), and MIM owners Sophie & Reneé.
It was truly a wonderful experience getting a first-hand look at the inner workings of the modelling industry.
Afterwards, I went to check out Viens Avec Moi Boutique on Wellington, which is also owned by Sophie & Reneé.
And then we made our way to a cozy restaurant across the street called the Gastro Pub before calling it a night.
Stay tuned for more of my fashion adventures in the city of Ottawa!
