Local model to appear on next season of "Project Runway"

Lifetime announced the contestants for Project Runway's seventh season yesterday, and unfortunately there are no local designers to be found on the lineup. However, there is one local model who will be competing. Her name is Monique Darton, and here's what I've been able to find out about her: she's originally from Brainerd, where she graduated from high school in 2003 and signed with Minneapolis agency Vision Model Management. She now lives in New York and is signed with Wilhelmina Models.

I actually recognize her from Vision's website (which she is no longer on), and remember being struck by her gorgeous hair and beautiful face. Hopefully she gets picked up by a strong designer on PR. Here's some more images of her:

  1. Monique Darton is exquisite and obviously
    talented! Her parents must be very, very
    proud of her. We'd like to see more of
    her in a Vogue cover shoot!
