    not every model you have up here is going to be a favorite of your readers. I do not like her. sheesh so what? just post it. That’s the world of fashion. stop trying to baby every model you have up here.

    • We have no problem with comments that aren’t positive, so long as they are well expressed or at least humorous.

  • Best possible choice! She’s killing it right now. One of my best friends and the Muse of my exhibition at the Valentine De badereau Gallery In St. Barth in the F.W.I. on August 3rd. Not to mention at least 50 pages of my book. I love you Erin, You DESERVE THIS. We shall celebrate in 3 weeks under a mango tree….

    To Natasha = you should meet her in person. She glows. Not to mention one of the more conscious connected people ive ever had the pleasure of knowing.

    I adore you.

  • odd angularity of face, nice figure – hope she is eating, obviously comfortable with her figure

  • i love the fact that she’s 23 :D

  • Al

    shes stunning and her body is amazing. I would like to see more beautiful models who deserve the ads because I am bored of new faces with no personality behind them. Erin seems like a stong and interesting girl and I would put her on a cover!

  • Lovely, poise and beauty! I only wish the photos were a bit clearer, to have top billing and be featured in Newfaces, I would think every effort would be made to provide the best snapshots. I get where you’re going with the amature snap shots, but keep them sharp.

  • This is one beautiful girl :) I happen to know her. She’s had this talent to entertain since she was 1 year old and loved making others smile :) Being the youngest of 6 daughters she was always wanting to have her hair and makeup done by 2 years of age :)!! The inside heart of Erin is even more beautiful than the outside, if that is possible and her work magnifies that.

  • I noticed her…a couple of days ago I think! So glad you featured her!! :)

  • Devon

    she is absolutely beautiful, but maybe a little old? just playing devils advocate. i prefer her more mature look over some of the 14 year olds parading around as adults. best of luck to you, you are gorgeous and your curves are killer.

  • Natasha N

    I LOOOOVE that she is 23……she has quite an unusual face, sort of a distinct beauty you can’t put your finger on. Nice though

  • Models and Style

    Wow she has amazing features!! but I agree she is a bit old,but we will see

  • Gabby

    Screw you, Erin – Montana is awesome.

    You look gorgeous, though, so best of luck.

  • Fatma

    She looks great! Although she is not 23…Erin is in her late 20’s and has been modeling in Los Angeles for years! Older models are back! It’s sad that agents feel that they still need to lie about models ages. If you look great that’s all that matters. I have had the pleasure of working with her years ago. She took a break for awhile and got married. Unfortunately that didn’t work out, but then she had the opportunity to move back to New York and It was a great move and glad to see that she is re-emerging. Much success to her!

  • Erin

    Hey Ya’ll!

    First of all, I am definitely NOT in my late 20’s.. my age is the truth.. Yes I got married very young, to my best friend, but now I am divorced and re-married to my job! I am grateful for all of the comments and support from everyone! Thank you so much..
    Second of all, I absolutely LOVE being from Montana! Its one of the most stunning places to behold..
    I am in Paris at the moment! First time! Very much enjoying! I am very excited to where my career is going! Yesterday, I did an editorial for L’Official Magazine In Normandie, France!! Oct. Issue! Watch out for it!! Sending love out into the Universe.. I hope you all can feel it! xoxo

    I don’t know why there aren’t better pictures of her up here. Her work with Jason Lee Parry is amazing: http://www.thephotographylink.com/archives/4001

  • jenna

    oh, and http://www.thecomune.com/blog/2009/11/09/jason-lee-parry-them-animals/. been a fan of this girl for a while!

  • Summer01

    Fatma needs to shut her mouth. and stop spreading rumors about people. This girl will go far! Good luck!

  • Maria

    According to a video on youtube she’s at least 25/26..

  • her body is seriously insane. love this girl.

  • you are definitely going to go a long way.. please keep at it.. can see you doing many campaigns and at a high level… your look, gaze, emotion and stillness is amazing… this is definitely a kate moss superseeder..

  • just checked out links for older stuff and must say she is getting finer with age just like an exclusive bottle of wine :)) KM is 36 and still going.. and its great to see the character and maturity and this stuff is definitely important on campaigns and being able to move product.. most of the Vic Secret Angels for example are in their late 20’s and early 30’s and its for a reason as its relatable on campaigns and products…

    also really feel these photos are great at showing off the model and knowing what to expect.. :))
