The CW network announced today that Minneapolis-based model Raina Hein will be a contestant on the 14th cycle of America's Next Top Model. The 22-year-old has been represented by a variety of agencies locally, including Ignite Models Inc. and Moore Creative Talent.
It's been a big month for local models. After Vision model Monique Darton was announced last month as a contestant on the current season of Project Runway and Will Defiel (another Vision model) recently walking the runways in Milan.
The next cycle premieres March 10 on CW.
Here are some more images of the gorgeous Raina, who I first spotted modeling at METRO Magazine's Fashion Fight Night in February 2007. I've since worked with her at shows such as Voltage: Fashion Amplified and RetroRama.
