New faces: Olivia Ludington

Bay watch

Another week, another Australian modelling competition launches new talent.

Olivia Ludington won the 2013 edition of the Girlfriend Rimmel Model Search last month, but she is yet to even graduate to the website of Chic Management, with which she has scored a two-year contract - in addition to an introduction to Chic's New York affiliate, Next Model Management.

But this first test is a good start for the 5'11" 15 year-old schoolgirl from Yowie Bay in the NSW Sutherland Shire.

The Girlfriend competition is of course better-established than Australia's Next Top Model - Cycle 8 of which, as we reported last week, has seen not just winner Melissa Juratowitch but a total of at least one dozen entrants now signed to professional modelling contracts.

Ludington joins a long list of previous GMS winners, who include Catherine McNeil, Abbey Lee Kershaw, Ruby Rose, Samantha Harris, Alyssa Sutherland and last year's winner, Grace Simmons.
