IMG has certainly thrown down their early gauntlet for the SS 10 New Faces sweepstakes in the form of this Dallas born beauty deftly named Nik. The face is exquisite, the body boasts major runway lines  and the buzz on this girl just hit 10. Stay tuned for Nik’s first bookings.

  1. what is it with IMG and their penchant for these nickname? Mak, Jac and now Nik? i’m getting confused, I always think of jac as monika anyway

  2. IDENTICAL to chantal deberry who used to be at fusion. woah. great body, so-so face.

  3. upon second look at chantel deberry, they are too similar. they HAVE to be the same girl!

  4. Shes pretty but I dont look at her and get all excited and her legs are too long…and too skinny.

    Pretty girl, but I wouldnt be surprised if she got lost in a see of others that look just like her.

  5. Weather Nik is ” Chantel ” or another name or whatever you might want to call her. She is Hot, Hot, Hot, her lines are so runway, her gorgeous mouth and those blue eye’s Nik is FANTASTIC.

  6. It’s chantel deberry shes amazing and the next big thing. Little girl from texas blowing up NYC!

  7. Nik is Hot, Hot, Hot….her body is so runway ready the face is so fresh and clean. Regardless if her name is Chantel or Nik she is FANTASTIC. Good Luck to her…..Oh and her legs are so perfect I thought models are suppose to have long in shape legs.

  8. What does it matter what her name is ? She’s lovely, I would agree with a few other’s very fresh her eyes are intriguing.She reminds me of the model version of scarlett johansson. Love Her!!!!!!

  9. The most amazing leggs I have ever seen whaou – I Also like her sweet face!


  11. I think it is very strange that they changed her name when she has already been working in NYC. I liked the other name better.

  12. They probably just wanted to market her as a new face…not Chantel DeBerry from fusion…

  13. She’ll be a runway sensation if she can walk. Give her a few seasons to master her face and learn her angles. At first glance, the first shot took me back to Balenciaga S/S06 ad campaign. sign?


  14. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!! she is beautiful and has A LOT of potential.
    A supermodel in the making..

  15. Nik is amazing. As always has an amazing way to finding these new fresh faces. Regardless if Nik was with an agency before it doesn’t matter now this young beauty is visible. ” Thanks to the staff and IMG”

    Agents must do there job’s by: Developing a model in a timely manner and then marketing. If the agency can’t do it, It’s the models choice to leave. ” Money is Time and Time is Money ”

    If Fusion was her previous agency I never saw her and if I’m correct Fusion is more of a Men’s agency. I think people should focus on what they are known for or best at. ” It’s TRUTH and FACT ” I’m just being honest that’s the problem don’t try to sell a product if you don’t have the resources.

    Thanks again

  16. can say that again.
    Fusion has always been a male agency. Booking gals is a whole different philosphy and you must know what you are doing.

  17. …and THANKS to Daryl Washington for discovering this AMAZING girl last year!

  18. I never met him. A few girls say he found them as well.

    He also found Jordan Richardson at Elite, Susan Cobel who is now with Ford I’m sure he will appear again.

    I think he used to work for one of the boutique agencies.

  19. I know him and I know he found Nik… because when he 1st discovered her he send her to meet me for a go-see. That was about one year ago.
    He is a lovely guy and, as a client, I enjoyed working with him.
    He found a lot of great girls.

    Great job Daryl Washington. Looking forward to see more girls from you =)

  20. besides Jasmine Sanders..def the best young model getting gigs..many different distinct looks great modeling body for runways.A future star.

  21. Actually, a talent/model scout named Nikki Pederson discovered Chantel (Nik) in Texas. She introduced Nik to Darryl Washington. You are right…Darryl does have a great eye for beauty. And as they say, “The rest is history”!
