From New York comes Kalyn Hemphill who stands at 5’10” and looks up to supermodel Cindy Crawford. She got signed with an agency at the age of 14, and obtained her first photoshoot for Academy, a sportswear store. If she doesn’t make it in that business, she admits that she’d love to work on television or film. But for now, she’s taking her chances.
Hoping to make her modeling dreams a reality, Kalyn Hemphill 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 named the winner of the competition, along with Project Runway's Irina Shabayeva. She has continued her modeling career since then, making her mark on the industry. She appeared on a music video by Aris Ziagos, in addition to spending time volunteering for her favorite charities: Autism Society of America and the US Autism and Asperger Association.
