Cynthia Bailey Model Search Winner Nisaa Pouncey Rocks Photoshoot [Video]
Rocawear’s Iconix Brand Group and the Cynthia Bailey School of Fashion joined forces for the 3-city model search.
Held at Atlanta’s Biltmore Hotel in August, the finale was hosted by Real Housewives of Atlanta star and supermodel Cynthia Bailey along with co-host Tyson Beckford. In the company of fashion elite, including judges Reggie Wells, Susie Sugarman, Marcus Jckson, Derek Blanks, Derek J, Satchel Jester, Rodney Harris and Nadia Shahrik, Atlanta’s own Nisaa Pouncey was selected as the winner of a $10,000 cash prize and a one-year contract with Click Models.
The newly crowned model was photographed by celebrity shooter Derek Blanks himself for a four-page fashion spread set to appear in VIBE Vixen’s Dec/Jan issue out next week. (We can’t give all the goods away just yet!)
