Phoenix Fashion Week Announces the Top 40 Models of 2013

There are many aspects behind a runway show to make it successful, and models are one of those key factors! On July 11, Phoenix Fashion Week announced the Top 40 male and female models who will be walking in the October showcase.

995727_10151704354073320_1302683455_nThese talented and stunning models were chosen from the casting call in June. Some seasoned veterans and some fresh faces, but all ready to rise to the challenge. Toni&Guy and No7 Cosmetics helped each model put their best foot forward on the runway with complete makeovers a couple weeks prior to the announcement. If you didn’t see the coverage of the event yet by Team SAK –> Check it out!

The atmosphere was full with excitement as bloggers, model’s friends and family, the emerging designers for PHXFW, and local fashion lovers gathered at The Mint to see which two models won the first challenge: The Headshot Challenge.

I was glad to have my trustee sidekick, Kelly B. to come to the event with me! We had so much fun!
