With the world becoming more visual and smaller due to social media many hopefuls hope to be seen as well as discovered. Our feature photographer was just mentioning how many times you will see IG bios including an email as well as the words, “Serious inquires only!” Moreover, what about the countless memes joking about males and females being models apart of the Instagram modeling agency?
Those scenarios and situations only highlight the dream of going from Instagram unknown to a major force to be reckoned with in the modeling world. Nevertheless, for one fortunate young lady that is exactly what happened! Model Alexis Primous took part in an Instagram model search that was conducted in behalf of IMG Models as well as W Magazine. The search turned out to be fruitful giving girls from all over the chance to show off their modeling abilities instead of having to go to cities such as NYC or Los Angeles. Alexis hails from Florida proving that a Instagram contest can discover talent in all places quickly.
Primous beat out hundreds of hopefuls in order to star in her very first editorial. Looking at the photos of her shoot will amaze you by her talent level rendering her a complete natural in front of the camera. Alexis poses like a vet so that it is so hard to believe that it was her first shoot ever.
Alexis Primous’ editorial is solidifying her as a promising new face in the modeling industry. Her editorial which can be found in the September issue of W mag is 14 pages deep. The shoot was styled by the fab Edward Enninful and lensed by Mario Sorrenti.
