When I Was (Almost In) Seventeen
When I was sixteen, I was almost in Seventeen. Well, I say almost, not really. On a whim I entered the Seventeen Cover Model Contest and made it to the semi-finals. Obviously I never had the bone structure to make it in the biz, but I got these photos out of it and they're pretty funny to look back on nonetheless. I came across these shots earlier today when I was cleaning out my apartment.
Lord, that lipstick I'm wearing in the red outfit is so 90's! How we ever thought it was a good idea to wear brown on our lips is beyond me. I remember it was 15 degrees outside when they took these pics. After Seventeen junked all the losing entries into the trash, a custodian fished out my application and called me at home in Houston and asked if I would come visit him in New York. Freak.
