FACE of an An­gel

SHE Carribean Magazine - - FASHION NOTEBOOK -

She is only 13 years old, but Nas­sau na­tive An­gel Cul­mer has been de­clared the “Fash­ion Face of the Ba­hamas.” An­gel beat out 16 other beau­ties to cap­ture the ti­tle in the first ever Fash­ion Face model search to be held in the coun­try.

Hosted by Pro­files98 Mag­a­zine in con­junc­tion with Saint In­ter­na­tional (Ja­maica), the com­pe­ti­tion in­volved a two-day work­shop at the Bri­tish Colo­nial Hil­ton last Fri­day and Satur­day, dur­ing which the con­tes­tants were groomed, trained and primed for the grand fi­nale in Au­gust.

Com­ing in sec­ond place was Tarea Stur­rup, 18, while Kelly Pierre, 17, placed third. All three of the top win­ners will be signed to the Saint In­ter­na­tional model man­age­ment and will rep­re­sent the Ba­hamas at the Fash­ion Face of the Caribbean model search in Ja­maica in March 2015.

Some of the world’s top agents are ex­pected to be in attendance at the model com­pe­ti­tion in Kingston next year. In the past, top-tier in­ter­na­tional agen­cies such as ELITE, Wil­helmina, MUSE Mod­els, IMG and NEXT have come to judge and of­fer con­tes­tants on-the spot con­tracts.

Saint In­ter­na­tional’s Founder and CEO Dewight Peters, who was in Nas­sau for the event, said he was so im­pressed with the cal­i­bre of mod­els that he first named the top five can­di­dates be­fore an­nounc­ing the top three win­ners. The other two con­tes­tants round­ing out the fi­nal five were Ereisha Mackey, 17, and Car­roll Stubbs, 23.

Also on hand for the event and serv­ing as judges were pro­fes­sional dancer Khadija Ni­cholas and Wal­ter Green, in­ter­na­tional fash­ion writer/ guru and fash­ion ed­i­to­rial di­rec­tor at Pro­files98 Mag­a­zine. Khadija, who re­cently shot to fame after she was se­lected for the cover of Pharell’s “Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe” sin­gle, as­sisted as a trainer dur­ing the work­shops and as the em­cee dur­ing the fi­nale.
