Ford Models‘Â Supermodel of the World Contest, US winner, Olivia from Seattle. (promo images courtesy of Ford)
MDC popped by the Ford Supermodel of the World contest (the US finals) and spent a fun filled afternoon with the wonderful Ford team. We watched as 250+ hopefuls marched in and out of the W Hotel aiming to represent the US for the eventual worldwide finals taking place in January in Brazil. While the eventual US winner, Olivia, would come out of the Ford LA contest, there were quite a few lovely young ladies that caught the eye of the discerning NY Ford team. For pictures of the event and some interviews with some of Ford’s finest, check out MDC’s exclusive coverage below the cards.
All behind the scenes images and videos, below, Betty for MDC.
