Wilhelmina is looking for Hot Body Models

EXTRA, EXTRA read about all about it. Saturday September 26th, in NYC, Wilhelmina is looking for Hot Body Models. But in other cities the dates are later on. (See below) The agency does not welcome petite's and stresses this on their website bluntly, but I don't see a height requirement for this contest, and in fitness and body part modeling sometimes a shorter girl can get in the door. If you want to do it, it might be worth it. Up to you. Here is the headline:

Wilhelmina International Expands Special Event Activities in Partnership with
