Things to do in Sacramento and Beyond

More needs models

More-magazine.jpgOne of my favorite issues of More magazine is the one where it announces the winners of its nationwide model search. If you're not familiar with the pub, it's for women 40 and older. That means all the models and all the articles are targeted at this demographic, which would include me!

Anyway, this is the eighth annual search, which More conducts along with the Wilhelmina modeling agency. What are they looking for? Well, it isn't someone size 0. It's women 40 and over who are "beautiful, accomplished and confident."

There are open calls in various cities. None of the venues is close to Sacramento - unless you're up for traveling to the Talbots store in Las Vegas on Nov. 10. Otherwise, if you think you've got what it takes, you can enter online with More or Wilhelmina: click here or or here.

Online entries need to be completed by midnight Nov. 15.

You can also mail an entry (current photo and a $25 processing fee) to More/Wilhelmina Model Search, P.O. Box 9151, Garden City, N.Y., 11530-9151. Entries must be postmarked by Nov. 15 and received by Nov. 26.

So, what if you get picked as a Top 10 finalist? You get to go to the Big Apple (free, of course) to participate in the finals on Feb. 20, 2008. The top three winners will be decided by a panel of More editors, Wilhelmina agents and other fashion big wigs.

The big prize is a modeling contract and a huge spread in an issue of More, likely next spring. The hair-care products and clothes are bonus perks!

So, come on Sacramento, enter!

About Comments

Reader comments on are the opinions of the writer, not The Sacramento Bee. If you see an objectionable comment, click the "report abuse" button below it. We will delete comments containing inappropriate links, obscenities, hate speech, and personal attacks. Flagrant or repeat violators will be banned. See more about comments here.

What You Should Know About Comments on is happy to provide a forum for reader interaction, discussion, feedback and reaction to our stories. However, we reserve the right to delete inappropriate comments or ban users who can't play nice. (See our full terms of service here.)

Here are some rules of the road:

• Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "report abuse" button to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.

• Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.

• Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.

• Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand. If you want to discuss an issue with a specific user, click on his profile name and send him a direct message.

• Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.

• Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.

• Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.

• Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.

You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted. You are more likely to see inappropriate comments before our staff does, so we ask that you click the "report abuse" button to submit those comments for moderator review. You also may notify us via email at Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment. Remember, comment moderation is subjective. You may find some material objectionable that we won't and vice versa.

If you submit a comment, the user name of your account will appear along with it. Users cannot remove their own comments once they have submitted them, but you may ask our staff to retract one of your comments by sending an email to Again, make sure you note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us your profile name.

hide comments

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
