JC/DC wants...Me?

Some time, over a week ago, I was reading news on Elluk.com and found an article saying that JC/DC otherwise known as Jean Charles de Castelbajac is launching a diffusion line that will feature skirt, t-shirts and jackets adorned with his colourfull and quirky designs. It also said that they were looking for models to walk at the launch on September 17th prior to London Fashion Week. I decided to try my luck my emailing them with this headshot: Now, I am not a deluded person and clearly know that I am not 'model material' per say se but at 5"10 I thought I'd give it a try. In my email I also stated my age (16) and my height. Yesterday I got a reply. They want me to come to a casting! The opening lines of the email read: 'We are pleased to inform you that you have what we are looking for, and we would love you to come to the casting for the historic launch of JC/DC!' Whilst a part of me wanted to jump excitedly and then dial my entire contact list as I screame 'YES!YES!YES!' the other part remained realistic. I know why they want me. My height is one of a model and judging by my age they are hoping that puberty hasn't rolled on yet meaning that I must look like a stick-insect. Well, aren't they going to be suprised when they see a 16 year old with a booty to rival J-Lo. I could save myself from disappointement by not going but I figure why not. After all I am very tall and at size 8-10 not exactly over-weight. (I hear Lara Stone is UK size 8). The casting is on Thursday at the Jean Charles de Catelbajac's store so you will hear how it goes!

good luck on the casting!! and you are model material btw. My jewelry will be pretty affordable but not cheap because it's all handmade and very good quality. I'd say it will mostly range from $40-$175....

Just wanted to say congrats for the casting, I think you have a good chance, you could certainly be a model judging on your headshot.
