We had such a fun last time finding Lea Groesland with V Magazine that we’ve once again joined forces for another installment of “V A Model” – a search to find the next face of women’s fashion via a global model contest. Prospective models can submit photos online for a chance to become the next face of Ford Models.

Following the success of previous winners, V and Ford Models have decided to unite for a second female model search competition. A panel of fashion insiders and tastemakers serve as the judges for the competition that awards the winner an opportunity to appear in the pages of V Magazine and snag a coveted contract with Ford Models. We particularly love this model search because it culminates in an incredible photo shoot for V Magazine…which is another way of saying this winner will hit the fashion ground running!

Please visit VMAGAZINE.com for your chance to V A Model. Be sure to check VMAGAZINE.com daily to cast your vote for your favorite candidate.

We have never doubted Hyoni’s modeling ability. She is the Ford Models’ Supermodel of the World 2007 winner, she has done campaigns for Lacoste and DKNY Jeans. Not one to rest on her laurels, Hyoni has now partnered with two other people, a stylist and producer from Vogue Korea, to open a store in Soho called Reborn Process. Hyoni and her stylist partner Aeri have sourced vintage pieces and reworked them in the shop’s studio space to create a unique collection. For more information about Hyoni’s store, please visit Fashionista.com to read the article by Britt Aboutaleb.
