Featurekins // Model Spotlight: Cassidy Eveler

It’s Friday afternoon at the Starbucks on Spring Street in Soho and ten year old Cassidy giggles beside me, tall hot chocolate in hand, as I wrangle her awesomely-tangled hair into two trendy “inside out” french braids. Her positive and endearing personality warm up the room and she’s bursting with energy; you’d never know she’s been working around the clock all week on a SS15 campaign uptown. Although she’s only been signed for thirteen months, by the end of the shoot, it’s obvious why Cassidy has booked a dozen top campaigns (Ralph Lauren, Calvin Clein, H&M… to name a few). It takes a special kid to model Summer clothing in the snow; Cassidy does it with a smile.

So one day did you just say, “Mom I want to model!” and the rest is history?

Well, we sent in pictures and in ten minutes an agent called back. This has been my dream since I was like four! (Mom, Jess, harps in, “There was an infomercial on the radio and I thought ‘We’re not doing that’. She kept going back to it, talking about it, so we went to Nashville and they told us to go to New York. I thought, ‘WHAT THE HECK. Why not!’. It was crazy. Like she said, an agent called me within 10 minutes.)

What was your favorite job of 2014?

The most fun project I did in 2014 was H&M because the photographer, Frank Malthiery, was very funny. He’s French! He said “Bonjour mademoiselle!”

Aside from modeling, what are some of your other interests?

Sing, act. I acted in an android commercial. My dream job is to be on Disney Channel. I played football and I was the fastest girl on the team… well, I was the only girl on the team. I love animals! I think I like Bryant Park best in NYC because it’s so peaceful; the taxis here honk for no reason!

What’s the hardest part of being a model?

Waking up so early to get on the plane! (Cassidy is from a small town outside of Memphis, Tennessee. For most flights, her normal wakeup call is around 3am!)

Fashionkins :: Je t’aime NYC

Print issue one was so full of amazing photography that it was hard to pick what would go into it and what we couldn’t use. One editorial that was beautifully done was Je t’aime NYC by Priscilla Gragg. Here are some of the images that didn’t get used but are just too cute to not show you!
