This place could use a little fabulous right about now.
Oh, look. Little PR fairies came in the night and built a press release. What does it say?
“Bravo’s creative competition series “Make Me A Supermodel” returns for season two with supermodel Tyson Beckford returning as the show’s host and mentor to the male models. Australian supermodel Nicole Trunfio joins the show as mentor to the female models. Also, a new panel of esteemed judges joins the series, including world-renowned designer Catherine Malandrino, model Jenny Shimizu, and famed photographer Perou and international model scout Marlon. “Make Me A Supermodel” follows a group of beautiful and talented men and women who will compete for $100,000 and the chance to become the next great supermodel. The series is scheduled to premiere on Bravo in the first quarter of 2009. “
“Australian supermodel Nicole Trunfio is both a staple in print modeling and a force on the runway. She has been featured across the globe in numerous fashion magazines, including Italian Vogue, Italian Elle, Marie Clare, German Vogue, French Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and Allure, and has worked with renowned photographers such as Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh, Patrick Shaw, Steven Klein, Alexei Hay and Karl Lagerfeld. Trunfio’s resume boasts various advertising campaigns ranging from Pantene to Ann Taylor to D&G and Lacoste. She can currently be seen in ads for Guess and BCBG. Trunfio has walked in runway shows by fashion’s hottest designers including Fendi, Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Versace, Missoni, Roberto Cavalli, Michael Kors and Gucci. Outside of modeling, Nicole studies acting and enjoys playing the guitar, reading and writing poetry, photography, running, and participating in extreme sports.”
Well, as self-proclaimed fashion television bloggers, this can only be seen as good news because right now, the landscape is looking bleak, sisters. We didn’t get too involved in Season 1 of this show because we were busy with PR stuff and we’ll be blunt: we didn’t have much faith in its success. We mistakenly thought this was going to be a poor man’s version of America’s Next Top Model, which is already pretty poor television. How could we ever doubt our Bravo overlords, who of course, managed to put together a far more stylish, more real-world-rooted modeling reality show? With the prospect of a PR season 6 seeming further and further away, we’ll happily blog the shit out of this show to while away the time. Let’s hope the boys are cute, the girls are fierce, and the judges are tragic.
