Think you've got the cheekbones or the clothes-hanger frame to become a model? Mario Tricoci Hair Salon & Day Spa is holding its annual search for new talent, "Mario, Make Me a Model."
Finalists will wear work by the designers in residence at the Chicago Fashion Incubator at Fashion Focus Chicago this October and get a shot at a contract with Ford Models. An open call for men and women starts Tuesday at 10 AM at Mario Tricoci's location at 900 N. Michigan. Hopefuls must be at least 16 years old.
It's not all about the skinny chicks today: Vive la Femme hosts a trunk show of a new plus-size line of office-ready pieces, Kingley and Posh, from 5 to 7 PM. Owner and designer Fresia Rodriguez, who launched the label last year, will be on hand.
