Who's got the look?

TVLand presents 'Top Model' for the Baby Boomer crowd.

Who's got the look?This season, Whitney broke the modeling mold when she became the first plus-sized woman to win "America's Next Top Model." Now, ten more contestants are out to break another modeling stereotype by becoming a top model over 35!

On June 4, TVLand will pull the wrapping off of "She's Got The Look" and it's about time.

"She's Got The Look" follows 10 contestants, 35 years old and older, as they vie for a modeling contract with Wilhelmina and a spread in SELF Magazine.  These women come in all shapes, colors and backgrounds, some overcoming huge challenges in life and others just coping with the daily struggles of being a wife and mom. 

Supermodel Kim Alexis is the host with Supermodel Beverly Johnson, Celebrity Stylist Robert Verdi and Wilhelmina President Sean Patterson Serve as Judges.  Throughout the six episode series, the women will live together in a New York loft and compete in the typical photo shoot and runway challenges.  But this modeling show will be anything but typical.  Instead of a house full of girl's just finding themselves, this house will be full of confident women who have strength and maturity in their corner.

"Television and the fashion world have historically overlooked real women in their 40s and 50s," states Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "TV Land is thrilled to showcase in an entertaining way these ten gorgeous women with rich life experiences."

"She's Got The Look's" ten contestants are:

Bahia, 37
Hometown: Beverly Hills, CA
Raised in a conservative Muslim family, Bahia is finally at a place in her life where she can embrace her beauty instead of trying to minimize it. She is ready to show the world that she is beautiful inside AND out.

Celeste, 50
Hometown: Chicago, IL
This vivacious 50-year old believes that this competition is her second chance at becoming a supermodel. Having strutted the runways in Europe when she was younger, Celeste knows exactly what it takes to make it in this business.

Karin, 40

This natural beauty thought she had made the decision twenty years ago to give up a career when she married her high school sweetheart and chose to stay home and raise her two kids.

Having overcome a difficult childhood, Tanya's proudest achievement is creating a positive life for her family.
