Milwaukee's Top Model search


Move over beer and brats, Milwaukee is also being recognized for its fashion-forward attitudes and good-looking residents. Milwaukee media purveyors and Milwaukee Magazine are hosting  Milwaukee’s Next Top Model search throughout the month of July to showcase these brew-city beauties.

"This is another chance for the city and its people to shine. Milwaukee's Top Model Search gives us yet another reason to toast the creative talent that's all over the greater Milwaukee area," says President Jeff Sherman.

Entrants can be male or female, but must be 21-year-old or older and a Wisconsin resident to enter. Voting closes July 22 and the announcement of the 10 finalists, including one readers’ choice finalist, will take place at an event on July 29 at the newly renovated Hyatt Milwaukee.

On August 8, the Top Model finalists will have the chance to strut the runway and model summer fashions at Bradford Beach where celebrity judges will choose Milwaukee's Top Model.

Only one male or female will be chosen as Milwaukee’s top model and will receive:

• Two round trip tickets from AirTran airways

• Published in upcoming issue of Milwaukee Magazine and featured on

• Participation in Lela boutique’s 5th annual "Tents Under Broadway" fashion event in September 2009

• Fashion Board Delegate for Milwaukee's Top Model 2010

• Lifelong subscription to Milwaukee Magazine

• Portfolio quality prints

“Milwaukee is a growing fashion hub, and we want Milwaukee's Top Model Search to help grow the scene while providing exposure and opportunities for local models,” says Milwaukee Magazine Associate Publisher Linda Lundeen.
