Uh-huh, yes she is, according to the prestigious Ford modelling agency. The agency picked Korean Kang Seung-hyun to be its next “it” girl and face on Jan 16.
Judges of the Ford Supermodel of the World competition named Kang as the grand winner. She walked away with the coveted US$250,000 (RM821,786) contract with Ford Models.
The competition, which is into its 28th year, scouts for the world’s freshest face. This year, 50 finalists from around the world flew to New York last week for a supermodel boot camp of photo shoots, go-sees and walking lessons. The competition culminated in a final runway show in midtown Manhattan on Wednesday.
