Having modeled professionally and appeared on everything from commercials to catalogues, the Chicago native Erica Milde has a lot going for her. She got her first modeling job at age 20, when she posed for Milwaukee Info magazine. She looks up to Christy Turlington, who she refers to as a classic beauty.
Hoping to make her modeling dreams a reality, Erica Milde became known for being one of the contestants on Lifetime’s Models of the Runway. She joined 15 other hopefuls for a chance to make it big in the industry, by appearing on the sister show to the successful Project Runway. Things heated up as they were paired off with designers and they get picked off one by one each week. She was the third to be eliminated from the competition, but she has since continued her career in modeling.
