Recent college grad Melinda has only been in the industry for 6 months but already has modeling down to a fine art. On her first ever overseas assignment, Melinda set Greece alight, shooting 14 editorials in a month. Intimidatingly beautiful, intelligent and confident, Melinda is the type of girl people want to work with because she just gets it. Add to the mix her perfect runway strut and it’s obvious that this girl is a natural.

    Very healthy looking, interesting… possibly good for commercial but not runway despite her great height. Reminds me slightly of Blake Lively.

    Same measurements as me! :p

    I actually really like her. Most people pointed out that she’s very healthy looking, which is nice. I hope to see her in NY and I hope she doesn’t lose much weight. She looks perfect :)

    she is so gorgeous. i definitely can she her in runway, editorial and commercial. she already had what a supermodel needs and she has both feminine and androgynous looks.

    her face is very strong so she looks like a little mean girl…she should make her photos a little softer…if i look in her photos its interesting that i can see a versatile model and a beautiful girl at the same time…very nice strong photos…very good model

    very different look. Usually models have their eyes very far apart, while Melinda has hers closer than most. Nice face.

    dree, noot sears, raquel… I also see them in her a little bit.,.
    great body, but I’m not a fan of her face.
