At the end of 2008, we ran a contest to find a cover model for Carol Alt's new book, MODEL, INCORPORATED. Hundreds of young women entered, and a panel of judges--including Carol, her editor, and the art director--narrowed the pool down to four finalists.
(You can see the finalists at our Flickr stream HERE.
After all our votes were tallied, we had a winner: the lovely Rianna!
Below you can see her winning photo:
Yes, that is Rianna on the cover of MODEL, INCORPORATED. The photo shoot was an absolute blast. I had a great time and, never having been to a cover shoot before, it was absolutely fascinating to see how it all comes together. Just one more fascinating step in the long journey from manuscript to book.
