Fall 2014 Fashion Must-Haves!

Hey there, Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. family! Now that we are officially into fall, we thought that it was due time to give you our list of Fall 2014 fashion must-haves. We at Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. want to help you look your best season after season, which is why we have compiled this great list of our favorites!

Over-the-Knee Boots- Whether you're trying to dress up your favorite pair of jeans, or stay warm while rocking an all-too-cute skirt or dress, over-the-knee boots are the way to go! They come in many different styles, so whether you're trying to get that business casual look, or something a little bit more eccentric, you'll be able to find a pair that suits your needs.

Biker Jacket- If you want to try adding some edge to your look, try a biker jacket! Make sure
that it is a fitted one though, as oversized leather jackets are a trend of the past. Pair with a cute floral dress for a look all your own, or go with a pair of sleek, black skinny jeans to keep your look in the biker vein.

Leggings- They're in! And they're everywhere! In ever style that you could possibly image! Get funky with an interesting print or pattern, go a little edgy with some zippers or faux leather embellishments, or keep your look cozy by rocking a cute knit pair with a warm sweater dress.

Capes- Want to dress up but can't find a coat or jacket that fits
the look? Try a cape! They look great with skirts, leggings, skinny jeans, and fitted knit sweater dresses! Oh, and did we mention that they're warm?!? They can be used to substitute most outerwear.

Column Dresses- It's the most versatile piece of clothing that one could rock this season! You can wear it as a dress, with tights, or wear it as a tunic, with pants. With those two alternatives, you've already got two looks, now decide whether you feel like donning your favorite belt with it as well! You really can't go wrong and there's just so many options out there!

Between Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt.'s development  and IMTA opening up doors to the industry's top movers and shakers, these two ladies were simply destined for success!

Words from Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt./ IMTA Alums Part 6

As many of you know, our attendance at the LA IMTA convention earlier this year was one of our most lucrative! We had an unheard of 100% callback rate! Of course that translates great for us as a "mother agency" but it also means great things for our contestants! See what contestant, Kendall, had to say about her experience. At the end of this blog, Kendall's mother, Jaime, also chimes in on her experience; one through the eyes of a parent.

I attended the IMTA LA Convention, it was a trip I will never forget. I experienced so many amazing things and meet some incredible people. It is a life changing experience! Without the help and training of the Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. staff I would not have had as much success as I did. I was prepared for everything that happened from the time I walked into the hotel until the time I left. Thank you to the Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. staff, you are truly amazing.

Kendall Hancox

My thoughts on IMTA...WOW!! What an amazing opportunity and experience for my daughter! Kendall had the time of her life at the convention. She walked away with several awards and lots of offers but more importantly she walked away with confidence in herself. Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. did an amazing job at preparing both Kendall and myself for everything we encountered at the IMTA convention, from the simplest details (of what Kendall should wear) to how to conduct herself. Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. staff, alumni and contestants became not only friends through this but family! I am truly grateful to Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. for all the opportunities and doors that have been opened for Kendall. Also a big thank you to the other contestants and their families for sharing this experience with us. Can't wait to see what the future holds for Kendall and the rest the contestants. As a parent my advice would be to let your child follow their dreams and be supportive.

Sincerely, Jaime Hancox

Brenton Duplessie Kills with New Gut Buster!

Happy weekend, Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. family! Many of you have heard about PMTM/ IMTA alum Brenton Duplessie and all of his recent success. Well, did you know that he has a movie coming out this month? It's called Jersey Shore Massacre, and it kills with its gut busting humor!

Brenton Duplessie stars as the character “Vinnie” in the horror-comedy JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE from Executive Producer Jenni Farley, best known as ‘JWOWW’ from the MTV hit series Jersey Shore. Written and directed by Paul Tarnopol, the film also stars Sal Governale, Richard Christy, and Bigfoot. Attack Entertainment is releasing JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE in theaters and on VOD, DVD and Blu-ray in August 2014.

JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE explores a day in the life of Teresa and her girlfriends when they leave their suburban New Jersey salon for a weekend of sun down the shore. The girls hook up with Vinnie and four other fist-pumping delinquents who find themselves thrown out from a seaside bar for inciting a dance floor brawl. With nowhere else to go, the group winds up at Teresa’s uncle Vito’s hideaway in the New
Jersey Pine Barrens. What was supposed to be a night of fun soon turns into a bloodbath when the group becomes unsuspecting targets of a mentally deranged killer. One by one, the body count rises at the hands of a killer who has much more than just an axe to grind.

The world premiere of JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE will be on Tuesday, August 19th at the AMC
Lincoln Square Theater in NYC and exclusively on DirecTV. The film will begin a limited engagement on Friday, August 22nd at the Cobble Hill Cinema in Brooklyn, NY and at the Laemmle Theater in North Hollywood, CA. JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE will be available on DVD, Blu-ray, iTunes, Time Warner, Comcast and all other Video On Demand platforms on Tuesday, August 26th.

It's a "Daly" thing!

Hello, Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. family! Many of you are already quite aware of, if not acquainted with, Pamela Daly. For those of you who are not, or are interested in learning more about our starlet, this blog is for you! While it features information on Ms. Daly, there is also a special announcement about an upcoming project that she is involved in! So read on and find yourself in awe of this wonderful lady!

Pamela Daly became involved with Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. when her son, Seth, began working with us. Both Seth and Pamela are successful models and actors that still work with us in Ohio while doing double time in LA.

An actress who really knows how to get to the core of her emotions, Pamela is genuine and spontaneous in her approach to acting. This has garnered her a lot of attention which has landed her roles in several great movies, television series, short films, and
a lot of great parts on stage! As a teacher, she is also able to help her students find and define that skill in themselves as they practice perfecting their own craft.

It comes to no surprise to us that Pamela continues to find such great success in LA! When she told us about her one woman show, SANGER: One Woman, One Story., we simply knew that she would hit this project right out of the park! Her organic acting is great at captivating audiences, leaving them entertained and inspired with it's lasting influence.

Anyone in the Los Angeles area will definitely want to attend this show! Guaranteed to be spectacular, Pamela's performance is also sure to encourage other actors to continue doing what they love. The play will be held at the historic El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood. It will run from August 22nd until the 31st. Times are Thursday - Saturday at 8pm and Saturday - Sunday at 3pm. Tickets can be purchased by clicking here.

To Pamela, we must say... Great job! You continue to make us and the rest of the Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. family so proud! Break a leg!

Tips to Curing Sunburn!

We at Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. know that the weather has been fickle this summer! From scorching hot and humid, to disastrous stormy weather, to hoodie teamperatures, it's all just a part of being an Ohioan! No matter the weather, though, sunburn can happen at almost anytime! That's why we thought it would be helpful to provide you with some DIY tips to cure, or at least alleviate, your sunburn woes!

Wash it with witch hazel:
Witch hazel is a staple when it comes to healing a number of ailments and maladies. Witch hazel is a plant, but only the leaves bark, and twigs, are used medicinally. They contain chemicals called “tannins” which, when applied to directly to the skin, can help reduce swelling, repair damaged skin, and ward off nasty bacteria. You’ll most likely find witch hazel in a distilled liquid extract form, which simply distilled from the dried leaves, bark, and twigs of the plant. It may also be called witch hazel water.

You will need…
-3 tablespoons of witch hazel, approximately
-Cotton balls or a clean soft cloth

The amount of witch hazel you will need will depend on the area of the burn you want to cover. Pour the necessary amount into a bowl, and soak cotton balls or a clean cloth in the liquid. Dab on just enough to cover the burn-it doesn’t need to be dripping off. Reapply as needed for pain.

Cool off with mint & tea:
Mint naturally cools and soothes whatever it touches, and sunburns are no exception. The tannic acid and theobromine found in green tea also helps relieve pain and heal damaged skin when applied

You will need…
-1 quart of boiling water
-5 green tea bags
-3 cups of fresh mint leaves
-Cotton pads or a clean soft cloth

Bring 1 quart of water to a boil. Remove the strings and tags from the 5 tea bags and add them, as well as 3 cups of fresh mint leaves, to a pan. Pour the boiling water over the mint leaves and tea bags and cover with a lid, letting is sit for approximately an hour so you can get all the good stuff out of it. Strain and then chill. When the mixture has chilled thoroughly, use cotton pads or a clean soft cloth soaked in the liquid and apply directly to the burn. You can also pour it over the burn if you wish. If you find yourself without green tea you can substitute black tea, which also contains tannins.

Cool milk compress:
A cool milk compress is one of the quickest, simplest and low-cost ways to treat sunburn. It doesn’t get much easier than just heading to the refrigerator for relief-and easy is good when treating anything. The
initial coolness of the milk will ease the heat, while it also creates a layer of protein to protect your skin, help it heal, and further soothe discomfort.

You will need…
-Gauze or a clean, soft, washcloth
-Chilled milk

Pour a bowl of milk high enough so that you can thoroughly soak your compress in it. When the gauze or washcloth is saturated, let the excess liquid drain off. Drape across your burn, pressing gently so that it stays in place, and leave it on for as long as needed. If the milk in the bowl becomes room temperature chill it before re-dunking your compress.
