Ten women over age 35 contend to be the next great supermodel. While living together in a New York City loft, they compete on the runway and in photo shoots. These women have experience and depth. They have stories to tell. Bahia, 37, was raised in a conservative Muslim family and is finally embracing her beauty. Celeste, 50, once walked the runways in Europe. Hope, 35, is a mom of three who never gave up her dream of modeling. Karin, 40, is a striking Swede who was once shy and awkward. Kathy, 39, gave up her modeling career to stay home with her kids. Melissa, 38, says she looks better now than ever before. Paula, 37, put herself through college on a sports scholarship. Roxanne, 40, is a redheaded, spiritual beauty. Sharon is a recently widowed 63-year-old stunner. Tanya, 45, overcame a difficult childhood and is committed to her family and community. Only one will win a contract with Wilhelmina Models, Inc. and a photo spread in SELF magazine.
