Barnard seeks Next Top Model for its revamped website
Barnard, in the hopes of earning the coveted “Best Dressed Women’s College” title, is searching for its own next top model to become the face for the new Barnard website.
In a secretive, yet oddly specific email sent to Barnard students on Friday, the Residential Life & Housing Committee at Barnard announced a photo shoot to occur later this week. The email, which tells interested models what to bring and wear and stuff, has very precise instructions! (Thinking about wearing pastels? Think again.) They even ask students to bring men along to the photo shoot so that they may “show that aspect of campus life.” Full email after the jump.
The Barnard Communications office is seeking students to participate in two photo shoots that will provide imagery for the *new* web site and other College materials. Please feel free to bring along college-age friends, including men as we need to show that aspect of campus life.
They are currently coordinating for Thursday, July 22 at 10-12, 1-3, 3:30-5:30
If you are interested in participating, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for any of the times below that fit your schedule:
Wear mostly solid colors in dark or bright tones. Do not wear white or pastels. Wear or change into clothes you would typically wear to school, not summer dresses, tank tops or flip flops. Most of the shoot will be in air conditioned spaces. Please bring a few accessories to change your look a bit. Like hats, scarves, (not necessarily winter-type hats and scarves), belts, light jackets or sweaters, possibly another pair of shoes or boots. Opaque tights or leggings would be ideal with shorter skirts.
They will have some props, but the more, and more varied, the better. Water bottles, travel mugs, bags, purses, books, notebooks, papers, iPods/mp3 players and headphones, cell phones, pens, pencils. The usual accoutrements of campus life. They will have a couple laptops.
This is also a chance to show off the unique personalities and style of Barnard students. If you think there is a look, accessory, etc. that stands out as a hallmark of a Barnard Woman, please come prepared to personify that.
They will follow up with more details, but plan on meeting in the Diana Center lobby 15 minutes before your time block.
If you have questions or would like to volunteer, please contact Laura Downs-Buma at email@example.com.
