The new season of America's Next Top Model - infamously cast for models 5'7" and under - includes the 21-year-old stay-at-home mom from Rochester, Minn. named Rae Weisz. It's not apparent that she's had much, if any local modeling experience as details on her are sparse. This blog helpfully points out that she and the show's three past Minnesotan contestants (Catie Anderson, Rebecca Epley and Coryn Woitel) have all been blonde. How very Minnesotan. Cycle 13 premieres September 19 on the CW network.

Meanwhile, local 18-year-old fashion plates/identical twins Coco & Breezy have been keeping busy stylin' it up in NYC. Here is a photo of them that was featured on NYC-based hair blog Girl My Hair. They got their chic cuts at Jungle Red Salon in Minneapolis.
