Brooklyn Native Iesha Hodges Named Ford’s Next Top Model

Submitted by on January 29, 2014 – 9:12 amOne Comment

Sorry, Tyra, but Iesha Hodges is America’s Next Top Model. After a worldwide search, the 19-year-old rookie from Brooklyn, N.Y. was chosen by V Magazine and Ford Models out of thousands of hopefuls as the new face of fashion.

“I just started screaming,” Hodges told the Huffington Post about the moment she received her initial callback. “The whole time I was thinking—this is my moment. This is my time. It just felt right.”

As the winner of the elusive modeling contract, Iesha’s life will be changed forever. Now signed to Ford Models in both New York and Paris, the 5’11″ stunner will be featured in an editorial shot by industry heavyweights, photographer Kacper Kasprzyk and stylist Robbie Spencer. Aptly titled, “New Season, New Girls, New Looks”, Iesha will rock this season’s must have looks from Prada, Calvin Klein, Christopher Kane, Jil Sander, Céline, and Givenchy and many others high-fashion designer duds alongside contest finalists Angelica & Rachelle.

“I’ve aspired to be in a magazine my whole life,” Iesha gushed. “Winning this contest is definitely a dream come true!”

And while winning the crown basically means that Iesha is the most beautiful girl in the world, the newbie believes there is more to being a supermodel than just delivering a perfect photo. “It’s about taking care of your insides more than your image,” she says.

Take a look at Iesha in action below. Do you think she’s “America’s Next Top Model”?
