Brianna Michelle – “Miss December” Female Model of the Month

01 Dec

Brianna Michelle

We proudly present the lovely Brianna Michelle. She’s our ‘Miss December’ and the epitome of the strong & beautiful black woman living her dreams. Here’s more about Miss December.

Where are you from?

I am from the Pacific Northwest, Seattle, WA

When did you start modeling?

I started modeling when I was in middle school. My counselor and mentor Virginia Owens was a successful model and she got me started with SMG Model Management.

What drives/drove you to pursue a career in the modeling/fashion industry?

I really felt that I had a unique look with being dark skin with natural green eyes and I had the height so I figured, “Let me see how the industry responds to me.”. Not to mention, I really wanted to see more ethnic models in the high fashion magazines.  Someone that young black girls can relate to.

What are some of your best/worst experiences modeling?

The best experience for me is living out my reality and testing my confidence and ambition because this industry is not easy.  I would say a disadvantage of this industry is that in all the major magazines, there is still less than 3% of minorities represented.  Flipping through magazines, knowing that you will only see a 1-5 pages of someone who you can relate to is very disheartening especially when we are consumers and just a beautiful.

What advice would you give to hopeful models?

I would say be faithful, ambition and consistent.  Never stop no matter how many times you hear no because you will hear a yes when it’s your time!

What is your dream job?

My dream jobs are working with DeBeers, Chanel and Versace!

How can you be booked?

I am working with A few agents here in NY (Direct Model Management, The Agency and managers). You could also contact me at bm@iambriannamichelle.com
What would you consider your best feature?

I would say my eyes and my skin 🙂

What are some of the jobs/campaigns you’ve been booked for or are recognized in?

L’Oreal‘s Dark N Lovely brand and my new campaign with Clairol

What do you do to stay in ‘Model’ Shape?

Eating well and bikram yoga…
