PULSE MGMT'S Hye Park from the Modelinia iPhone App

Hye Rim Park was born on January 17, 1985, in Seoul, South Korea, and immigrated with her family to Salt Lake City when she was 13. She was discovered by Stacey Eastman of power house management company Pulse Mgmt. While attending the University of Utah in 2004. Hye is one of the few Asian models on the international high-fashion scene—there is a regrettable lack in the industry.

Hye’s first break came in early 2005, when Steven Meisel shot her for ItalianVogue prior to the Fall 2005 shows. After the shoot, she was asked to walk for major shows at New York Fall 2005 Fashion Week, including Marc Jacobs and Anna Sui. Her real big break came when Miuccia Prada and Russell Marsh cast her in the Prada and Miu Miu shows during Milan fashion week. She became the first non-Caucasian model since Naomi Campbell in 1997 to walk the show, and only the second Asian female model to walk for Prada. The Prada/Miu Miu bookings led to a flurry of bookings in Paris (Balenciaga, Chloe, Lanvin, Rochas), and Hye has since appeared on the catwalk for many other designers, including Christian Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Max Azria, Alexander McQueen, and Burberry.

Hye has collaborated with top photographers like Mario Testino, Steven Klein, Annie Leibovitz, Patrick Demarchelier, Craig McDean, and David Sims, in addition to her ongoing work with Meisel. Hye has also been booked for editorials for many magazines, including Vogue(American, French, Italian, Chinese, and Korean editions), Flair, Numéro,W, Allure, The New York Times, Pop, and Harper’s Baazar. She has posed in international campaigns for Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana, D&G, H&M, M.A.C. Cosmetics, Gap, Le Printemps, Marc Jacobs, Cesare Paciotti, Tiffany & Co., MaxMara, Saks Fifth Avenue, Plastic Island, and Love, Sex, Money. She also has been the face of Korean brands H&T (Hangten) and KeraSys.

Hye still lives in Salt Lake City, near her family. “I don’t really like New York,” she says, because she finds it “too crowded. I like Paris better. It’s more quiet and fun.” In June 2008, Hye married her boyfriend of three years.

When she isn’t modeling, Hye says she likes “shopping, and I spend a lot of time on Cyworld.” (The website is the Korean equivalent of MySpace.) And when she’s done modeling? “I want to be a nurse,” she says. Lucky patients!

PULSE MGMT'S discovery Tori Praver from the Modelinia iPhone App

Born June 4, 1986 in San Diego, California, Pulse Mgmt's Stacey Eastman discovers Tori Praver grew up on the beaches of Maui, and was discovered at 11 in a local supermarket.

When she was 13, Tori moved to New York to start modeling, but realized she wasn't ready for life in the fast lane and moved back to Hawaii to finish high school. At 18, she returned to New York to model full time, landing campaigns for Guess, and scoring covers for magazines likeCosmopolitan, Glamour, and Elle. She was even lucky enough to have her photo featured in the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition three years in a row (2007 through 2009).

A beach lover and avid surfer, Tori took her experience in the fashion industry and translated it into her own bathing suit line. She launched Tori Praver Swimwear in 2009 and has been fashioning beach bunnies ever since. We can't wait to see what she'll do next.

Hannah Holman Poses for Victoria's Secret Pink

Hannah Holman Joins the VS Crew - Featured in

Around this time every year, our minds turn to one thing: the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! And the excitement for this year’s glittery event has already begun, since Adriana Lima decorated New York City with the $2 million Fantasy Bra just last week.

Since our brain is filled with wings, over the top lingerie outfits, and angels, it makes perfect sense to give into the VS addiction and flip through the latest catalogue, right?

While perusing the latest offerings and model poses, we spied none other than adorable Hannah Holman, dressed up in VS Pink gear! Interestingly, hers is not the only surprising model appearance in collegiate sweats and precious bright colors as of late. Remember back in June when we spotted Coco Rocha jumping alongside Behati Prinsloo and Chanel Iman?

Now the real question is: Does this mean Hannah could very possibly make an appearance on the 2010 Victoria’s Secret runway? She is 19, so her age wouldn’t be an issue…
