They might not be household names like Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell, but these 40+ Wilhelmina models are industry vets who are still in the game. They joined Dancing With The Stars costume designer Randall Christensen yesterday for a lunch to celebrate the launch of the Wilhelmina Models 40+ Model search presented by Miraclesuit. Chic wondered.....


Who is your favorite model of all time?  


Victoria Hill:  "I'd have to go with my darling Christy Turlington."

Holly Hammond: "Carol Alt. She's timeless." 

Simone Banos: "Gisele."

Caprice Benedetti: "That's between Carmen Dell'Orefice and Linda Evangelista, absolutely! Timeless beauties and great models."

Randall Christensen: "I don't have a favorite model of all time." 


What models do you have your eye on now? 

 Victoria Hill: "I love Chanel Iman and Jessica White."  

Simone Banos: "Brooklyn Decker. She seems to have an outstanding character. From what I understand, she's always on time and always in great shape when she shows up. Those are the things that impress me. I've been shooting my whole life and I was always on set first." 

Caprice Benedetti: "I haven't seen anyone who is unique. I've been waiting for them. I feel like a resurgence of the '80s Benetton girls is starting to come up. There are a couple of young girls who I saw on the street—I don't know what their names are or what agency they are with—but they are really interesting. I'm looking forward to different shapes and sizes and colors." 

Holly Hammond: "That's an interesting question, because I can't even answer it. I am such a non-model model. I can tell you anything about running a marathon or doing triathlons. I don't even read fashion magazines. I do know all the models from the '80s…."


The first open call is March 12th in NYC. Click here for more details.
