From Clear Lake, Texas comes aspiring model Dalya, who lists Alexander McQueen and Giambattista Valli as her favorite designers. She signed up as one of the fourteen contestants competing for the title on the 16th Cycle of America’s Next Top Model, and is confident in her talents on the runway. She enjoys reading, shopping and hanging out with her friends, but claims she’s always in “model mode”.
Though afraid that the judges would not understand her, Dalya still hopes to take home the prize on America’s Next Top Model 16. The winner will receive a contract with IMG Models, one of the top international modeling management companies in the world; a fashion spread in Vogue Italia and an additional spread and cover of Beauty in Vogue; and a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl Cosmetics.
