Could You Be The New Guess Girl? – do you look like, or know somebody who looks like, Claudia Schiffer, Eva Herzigova or Kate Upton? If so you or your friend could be the next Guess Girl.
Back in 1989 Guess launched a new black and white ad campaign featuring the then unknown 19-year old model Claudia Schiffer. Pretty soon things changed for Claudia and Guess found themselves a whole lot more publicity than they expected.
After Claudia appeared in a number of different ad campaigns for the company they used a number of other models including Anna Nicole Smith in 1993. Anyone remembering her from later on would be surprised by how sexy Anna looks in her Guess Girl photos.
1993 also saw Guess use sexy French model Laetitia Casta as a new Guess Girl. The stunning French model also worked as an actress playing Brigitte Bardot in the 2010 movie Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life. Victoria’s Secret model Laetitia was voted the Number 1 in a 2001 poll of the World’s Most Beautiful Women. At the time she said her breasts were ‘made in Normandy from butter and crème fraiche.
Following Laetitia were new Guess Girls Drew Barrymore, Josie Maran, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adrianna Lima. The brand have recently used Kate Upton for their ad campaigns but now anyone woman aged 16 or over in the US or Canada can get the chance to follow in the footsteps (or should that be the heels) of the women above.
Applicants need to go to the guessgirl.com site between 19 April and 15 May and upload 3 photos of themselves. There are also a number of on-location casting sessions taking place in the US and Canada on 20th and 27th of April. From the website entries and the in-store sessions a public vote will select the 5 finalists and the winner will be chosen by a team from Guess, Elle and Ford Models.
Apart from the chance to follow all of those famous fashion names the winner will also receive an Elle photo shoot, a $2500 shopping trip courtesy of Guess and the chance to join the books of Ford Models.
Oh and in case you think that this sort of career might be short-lived keep in mind that Claudia Schiffer returned for a special 30th anniversary year shoot for Guess just last year, 23 years after her first fashion shoot for them and she still looked as hot as she did in the first set of photos.
