Megan Ewing can do a lot more than GUESS, with proper styling - probably her best photo, in Dior, from a French Marie Claire cover, April 2001 -photo by Peter Christian

Sorry, I hit "publish your comment" too soon! :D Anyway, thank you so very much for that very, very, VERY rare cover! :D I only have a small copy of it, and that nice large picture is a blessing. I'm sure that Trimalynn (who runs a great Megan site-- www.meganewing.net-- will love to put it up as soon as possible!)

Where did you find it? Did "Peter Christian" email it to you? Or is Peter the photographer.

And I'm going to put it up on her Chilax forum right now! If you'd like to come and chat about Megan with her fans-- or about any other models, actually-- feel free! We're always looking to find new models fans for Chilax. :)

Being in the fashion biz in Dallas has given me a little insight into Megan's career. She started with a smsll (unnamed) agency in Dallas. Her agent would accompany her to all her photoshoots, interviews,etc. because he was fearful that she would wise up and switch to a better agency, and he would lose the golden goose (Kim Smith is his other major model, also a Guess model,whose career has devolved into being a "Maxim" girl,whom he also would shadow everywhere she went). I'm not even sure if Megan is still in the business; I hope that she is. What the greed and lack of imagination on an agent's part can do to a beautiful model's career.
In stark contrast to the previously named agency, the Kim Dawson Agency in Dallas is where the careers of Erin Wasson, Bridgett Hall, Chandra North and others began...
P.S: I'm not associated with Kim Dawson or the other agency, but I've had a lot of dealings with both.

I think both Kim and Megan have far more mass appeal than the other mods (although Chandra is still popular outside NYC) - in my opinion, the best US models are names like James King, Amy Wesson, Megan Ewing, etc - because they can sell products to even a French or Russian teenager, and that's how a capable model should be judged (except for those who subscribe to the two-season wonder theory)

Megan did a great job selling GUESS all over the world for a couple of years - I dunno how she got pregnant or what the problem was, but I bet the Marcianos could use her even today.

Shannon Click , the rather bland blonde with sizable boobs who was in GUESS ads with Megan and Patricia Barros, is now with Women NYC and consequently certified "high fashion compatible" - Top 10 First Season Face in fact - by the usual assholes
(who would have dismissed her as a "GUESS model" a few months ago, if she was with a "lesser" agency)
That's how NYC modelling operates - if you ger Rowland, Bart and Co behind you, your past modelling history (or lack of) doesn't matter much

Hey Anonymous... you should really email me at Zml2122@aol.com! I'd love to hear more stories about Megan's career! :D

Yes, I think I know exactly what you're talking about when you tell me about Megan's first agency in Dallas bungling up her career! Actually, I know that you are talking about Clipse Model Management Agency (http://www.clipsemanagement.com) and about Ty Kilinc (the very slimy head agent there!) Ty Kilinc actually showed up in Megan's BThere video about her shopping to go to the Maxim Hot 100 Party in 2001 (the video: http://www.bthere.tv/story.asp?sid=89). Honestly, I think he acted like a pretty disgusting pervert with her, always calling her baby and telling her she should wear a bikini to the party. (Here is a picture of the two of them together: http://www.bthere.tv/DBimages/pic/Megan_Ewing2_pic.jpg).

Anyway, yeah, I've actually read about his sleazy business practices before! I've read a Vogue (?) article about how the head of ID models managment actually had to "fire" Kim Smith because Ty Kilinc would always take her around to booking jobs and try to tell the hiring companies to contact him directly!

As far as I'm concerned, Ty Kilinc is part of the slime of the fashion world who takes mismanages the biggest models he has been able to get. I honestly think he's doing an amazingly shoddy job with Kim Smith's career (see her website at: www.kimsmithmodel.com). She used to be a Guess and Mac and Jac type of model... now she's trying to making it into the movies (with an endlessly hyped 5-minute cameo in that bomb "Catwoman") and trashy Maxim appearences. And of course... Clipse is the only agency Kim is affiliated with now!

Megan is off a LITTLE better though! She is still with Clipse of Dallas and mentioned on their website... but she is also with Marilyn NYCAgency (www.marilynagency.com-- you can see her under NY models, and I have called them and heard them say she was with them) and Flash of Milan (http://www.flashmodelmanagement.com/shop/?page=shop/flypage&product_id=69&category_id=a636e8100c3411fc298412dcbc73e5ad). I'm not sure how good of an agency Flash is, but Marilyn Agency will hopefully get a hold of some good jobs for her! :D

This comment and the comment before this one are mine! Sorry to put my name on it again!

Yes, FV, I think Megan, Kim, etc. do have a lot of mass appeal! More so than some other US high fashion chickies like Erin Wasson (gag!) anyway. (So much bitchface on that model alone... so much bitchface.)

Megan especially has an international appeal, I think. She's American, of course, but she also is a latina because of her Mexican heritage, and she can look Italian, Mexican, Spanish or American depending on her styling. And of course, she has shown that she's capable of pushing product in Asia (with Japanese fashion mags), Europe (with La Perla, Skiny, CAT), and of course in America! I just wish she would land a good campaign again... she hasn't had one since 2002, after her rumored "pregnancy".

I think both Kim and Megan have far more mass appeal than the other mods (although Chandra is still popular outside NYC) - in my opinion, the best US models are names like James King, Amy Wesson, Megan Ewing, etc - because they can sell products to even a French or Russian teenager, and that's how a capable model should be judged (except for those who subscribe to the two-season wonder theory)

In response to a comment here- I am very impressed with Erin Wasson's look. I think she has a unique flare and stunning features. Megan looks alright when she is highly made up, but I think she looks rather average behind the scenes. When I first saw her with Adriana Lima for Guess? I thought both had a very exotic appearance, but as I saw more of Megan I saw her more as an average, young, American girl. Adriana, on the other hand, impressed me further as she went on to shoot more and more stunning photos. I don't think Megan quite makes it into the supermodel category.

The question is - what sells today?

Jerry Hall was huge in the 70s, but if you brought her back today, I doubt she would have 5% of the allure she had back then - still, much of the "talent" NYC modelling produces look like they jumped out of a 70s B-movie. Erin Wasson is the "millennium" version of that.

The US remains rather isolated from international trends - the UK was in a far worst shape, but in less than a decade, after their borders opened up to the rest of Europe, the public there learned to admire the "alien" Sklenarikova types (as opposed to the horrible "classic English" beauties high fashion is so fond of) who still look too "complicated" for a US beauty campaign


This deviation from world norms is very evident in US women's fashion - while the major model agencies in the 90s tried to steer the US market towards the international mainstream, where faces like Korina Longin, Megan Ewing, Amy Wesson or even Bekah Jenkins are the ones who can sell product in the US and worldwide, the current fashion illuminati still drool about "the next door girl" look and try to discover models who look like Amber V/Angie L or any other beauty queen from west Kansas

Not because they are traditionalists - the same people adore K Elson's weirdness - but because that's what they think the US consumer should be getting.

The NY Times hacks express the views of the local fashion crowd when they talk about the disturbing (to them) "exotic" or "zezebel" type model image - meaning women who don't just have big breasts and bland features, which appeal to the high school or "T&A" crowd, but can actually look seducing in the sense that Monica Bellucci does

The fear of the sensual woman is very much evident in US fashion circles - their duty seems to be to keep such "dangerous" women away from the pubic view

Erin Wasson sells the all-American "sexy bitch" image - someone with a "character" who plays the role of the old-style fashion "supermodel".
Fashion loves that - not only in the US, in fact many fashionable Parisienne still can't forget Jerry Hall - but the modern consumer, to whom the model is supposed to appeal and sell a product, couldn't care less.

>>>Megan looks alright when she is highly made up, but I think she looks rather average behind the scenes. When I first saw her with Adriana Lima for Guess? I thought both had a very exotic appearance, but as I saw more of Megan I saw her more as an average, young, American girl.<<<

Megan Ewing often did come off like an average American girl in videos... because she was an average American girl when she was younger! (Now that she's 20 years old, has a child, and has traveled overseas extensively, she's probably much more grown up.)

But the wondrous thing about Megan Ewing is how grown up, how seductive and how mature she looks ON CAMERA. She is one of the most amazingly photogenic people I've ever seen-- the camera just adores her! And this is apparent in more than just her GUESS images-- go to Trimalynn's excellent site www.meganewing.net to see some gorgeous images of Megan from brands like La Perla, Victoria's Secret, Skiny and CAT and magazines like Elle, Marie Claire, and Glamour. She has a whole range of looks like her GUESS ads alone does not show.

Also FV, I STRONGLY agree with you when you say that fashion "insiders" too often neglect women like Monica Belluci and Adriana Lima-- women who are sexy, sensual but not sleazy looking (like the Pam Anderson type.) They think that consumers would rather look at bored, haughty stick figures like the odious Erin Wasson-- who I think probably scares the average person off! :D

I know Ty, and he happens to be one of the best. Are you one of the many whitetrash types that he turned down fo representation and now you blog your revenge.

Kim Smith just got Bulgari Arte Campaign, she shot 4 episodes on Friday Night Lights, and landed a national Miller Spot which will make her half mill. Kilinc is married for over 16 years to the same woman that have mothered his 4 beautiful children. He is active in his community and donates much of his free time to underprivilidged children. He opened a sports complex so that kids could have a place to participate in sports programs.

You are but a mere nobody who wishes to be these models that you pretend to know. Megan Ewing blew her career by sleeping around with drug dealers whom she grew up around in her lovely home town of Brady Texas. She was emprenated by the same drug dealer boyfriend wqho beat her senseless, the same scum who Kilinc removed from her life and protected her from only to be let back in by Ewing. Ty Kilinc is a man that needs nointro in the entertainment business, his success in areas which span much more than entertainment business would be non comprehendable to someone like you. You have so much time on your hand that you sit on your fat ass and bad people and hide behind the internet and your blogs. Make yourself known so that Kilinc can slap you with a lawsuit for defaming his character.

Those of you wondering who I am, I'm a former male model represented by him, and once he saved me from myself, had it not been for his interference in my messed up life I would not be writing this today and would not be married to a great girl and would not the sweetest little baby girl. I have not modeled in over 5 years and currently work within my families company and remain friends with Ty and his bride of 16 years , his children refer to Kim Smith asa their older sister and Ty has not only protected her as he has many other young girls starting in the business made her a formidible name. Watch what happens with Kim this year

This and much more this year and still under the management of Clipse. Ty does travel with the young girls and only to protect them from the real scum, like Brunell from Karens and Casablanca, men who drug these impressionable young girls. Kilinc is married for over 16 years to the same woman that have mothered his 4 beautiful children. He is active in his community and donates much of his free time to underprivilidged children.

Ty Kilinc is a man that needs no intro in the entertainment business, his success in areas which span much further than the entertainment business. He represents Olympic Gold Medalists and NFL athletes. These things someone like you could not fathom and surely could not comprehend.You have so much time on your hand that you sit on your fat ass and badmouth people That you dont even know. Then you hide behind the internet and your blogs. Make yourself known so that Kilinc can slap you with a lawsuit for defaming his character.

Watch what happens with Kim this year. You are nothing but a jelous nobody with way to much time on your hand!!!! I showed this blog to Ty and he laughed about it and said " Only God knows man". That's the way he is.

Get a life!!!
