We picked Chantelle right off the bat from the agency package. Chantelle has one killer face that is ready to be everywhere in fashion. She has the drive and will power to break into the fashion industry. Standing at 5’11 (180cm). My predictions she will definitely be exclusive next season. Watch out for this killer new face.

SC: What has been your favourite modelling career moment so far?
CJ: Doing a shoot with Charlotte Tilbury. That was my first ever modelling experience, so I was really nervous but it turned out to be a lot of fun.
SC: Do you believe in Aliens?
CJ: Yes, I do. There is no way that we’re the only beings in the whole universe. When you realize how tiny we are, you start to question it alone.
SC: What does your family think about your modelling and travelling the world?
CJ: My mum and my brothers have been wanting me to get into modelling for a while now, so they’re really proud.
SC: Any music artists you recommend?
CJ: There are a few but PARTYNEXTDOOR, Drake, IAMDDB, Summer Walker, D Block Europe, SL, The Internet/Syd and Tyler the Creator.
SC: As every model has its struggles. What are you currently struggling within this day and age as a model?
CJ: Confidence and self-doubt have always been an issue for me. I am currently trying to overcome this because there is no space for being timid in the modelling industry.
SC: What do you think about fashion including all sizes/genders?
CJ: I think it is really important to be inclusive of all sizes and genders. I don’t believe there is a reason why fashion should not accommodate everyone. Also, if designers do accommodate for all sizes and genders, it only increases their market, so it really is a win-win.
SC: In what city would you settle?
CJ: Anywhere that’s warmer than London.
Casting & Production: Charlotte Smith
