Video vixens are changing the face of modeling for the better. From cosmetic companies to clothing lines, more and more vixens are setting their bikinis aside for pants suits and blazers as they step into the "business" side of modeling.
Vanessa Posso (It's Rich Girlz)
You may not know the name and you have most likely seen her in a rap video or two but you have definitely seen her jewelry while watching your favorite reality tv show. Vanessa took her love for large hoop earrings and turned it into a lucrative accessories boutique called Its Rich Girlz. She now sells bracelets, rings, necklaces as well. Her jewelry has been worn by Love and Hip-Hop NY cast members, celebs including Draya (during a few clips/episodes of BBW LA Season 2), on magazine covers and more. My favorite quote from her is “If you have a passion for something be the BEST at it and chase it”.
Keyshia Ka'oir (Ka'oir Cosmetics)
Instead of waiting around for a contract with a cosmetic company (which seems to be coveted for fashion models), Keyshia Dior created her own cosmetic company called Ka'oir. She started with a handful of brightly colored lipsticks and now has a nearly complete line ranging from lip gloss to eye shadow. Her latest business strategy was teaming up with The Jersey Shore's Snookie, to create a lipstick color called "Snookilicious".
Rosa Acosta (Body By Rosa Acosta)
Rosa was, and still is, one of the rare video vixens to embrace and promote healthy eating, fitness and exercising. Rosa is a trained ballerina turned video model who became known for her insane flexibility. After landing endorsement deals with urban wear company T.I.T.S (Two in the Shirt) and 9Five Eyewear, earlier this year Rosa launched her own line of cute and colorful active wear called Body by Rosa Acosta. She was also named the Video Model of The Decade by King Magazine.
Amber has come a long way since being the blonde girl with the buzz cut in that Ludacris video years ago. While Amber has spent most of career being known as Wiz Khalifa or Kanye's boo-thang, she landed a multitude of endorsements deals including a national ad campaign with Smirnoff Vodka and Ford Modeling Contract.
How do you feel about video models in the corporate world?
I would love your input :-)
