Margaux Brooke made it to the bitter end on The Face last season, and she's been working hard on the big name modeling circuit since! In fact, you may have seen her on TV between the Target, Sony, and Uniqlo ads...oh, and have you seen a little thing called Britney Spears' "Work B*tch" video? Pause at 1:35 and say hello to the chic and fabulous Margaux!
Scroll down to read a catch-up Q&A with the ex-Face contestant, and read more about her recent adventures....as well as some of her advice for Season 2 contestants.
What modeling work have you done since we saw you on The Face?
A lot of great things have happened with my modeling career since The Face. I have done campaigns for brands like Target, Always, Adidas, Stile, Lenovo, and John Frieda. Commercials for Target, Uniqlo, Scion, and Sony. Editorials for Nylon, Zink, Treats, Creem and Dossier Journal. I’ve been featured in music videos including Britney Spears’ “Work B*tch”, “Echelon” by Angel Haze, and “These Four Words” by The Maine and more! Recently in 2014 I completed my first season of New York Fashion Week where I walked in the Autumn/Winter ‘14 show for Marc Jacobs.
How about other kinds of work or hobbies?
When I was on The Face I was rock climbing competitively but have since had to stop because I was getting “too buff” for modeling. I’ve really been trying to focus on my writing lately. I write as often as I can, usually in the form of a journal but I’ve also been doing some fiction writing exercises. One day I would really like to write a novel.
Have you had any major life events happen?
I've taken a break from school to fully focus on my modeling career. I've also been back to New York for work three times since the show ended, including New York Fashion week where I walked my first season. Last year I really focused on my commercial work, this year will hopefully be more focused on my editorial career. I just signed with Models 1 in London and Monster Management in Milan, so I plan on doing a lot of traveling this year as well.
What advice would you give to the Season 2 girls?
My advice is do not be too hard on yourselves. While the show is a learning experience, it is a VERY condensed version of modeling in the real world. Just be yourself, be kind, and take everything with a grain of salt. Whether you fail or succeed on the show, it has no bearing on how successful you will be if you continue to model after the show in the real world.
Tune into the premiere of 'The Face' Season 2, airing March 5 at 10/9c!
