'Ugly' is the new beautiful with Ugly New York

A Talent agency in NYC is looking for Ugly. Founded in London with also an office in NYC I recently met with the agency heaad of Ugly New York, Simon Rogers. We shares some coffee at a diner and I enjoyed speaking to him about how his agency represents beauty all around us. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, for sure, and I believe that beauty is not a certain size, weight or height, and that perfection is becoming a bore!

Here is an article on Ugly Models on MSNBC.

This is a quote from Jorganna James, a model with Ugly New York.

“For me, being a little person, I never thought that I could be a model because you think of a model being 6 feet tall, skinny and beautiful,” actress/model Jordanna James told Roker. “And I’m only 3-11. So once I found out that I could say, ‘Yeah, I’m a model,’ I’m like, ‘Yeah! That’s really cool.’

Unique is in!
