Video Vixens.net is a website dedicated specifically to models that have appeared in music videos. Music Videos are the medium where an urban model can shine and not worry about if she is tall enough or skinny enough to be considered for work. Video Vixens come in all shapes and sizes and music videos embrace all that is beautiful about a woman. Honestly do you think anybody would watch music videos if it weren't for the models? VideoVixens.net has broken the art of video modeling into three separate categories:
VIDEO VIXENS: A Video Vixen is what would be considered to be a veteran in the music video modeling game. A Video Vixen is a model that has been cast in at least one major music video in featured or a principal role as well as having appeared in a major magazine publication such as KING, Black Mens, Smooth, or XXL. There are several types of video vixens from the fresh new faces who have just recently gotten their first music video feature like Ahni Luv, Chessika Cartwright, LaShontae, Nancy Ermina, Miya Granatello, Vanna Black, Nicole Narain, LaShontae, Shauna Faith, Amber Burnside aka Absolutely Amber, and Janelle Stein to the already established vixens who have several features in music videos to their credit like The Glenn Twins, Erica Mena, Azzareya Curtis, Esther Baxter, Buffie... The Body, Simone Baptiste and Summer Walker to the OG veteran Video Vixens who have careers that span over 5 years in the industry like Melyssa Ford, Gloria Velez, Sincerely Ward and KiToy Johnson.
VIDEO HONEYS: A Video Honey is what is considered to be a rookie to the music video modeling game. They are young ladies who have modeling experience and have appeared in at least one music video but not necessarily in a feature or principal role and they have not appeared in a major magazine publication. They are the next in line to shine and are one step away from becoming Video Vixens themselves. They have been on music video sets before and they know about the process and the long hours that come with the job so they have a little experience.
In December 2005, Hot Video Honeys 2006 (National Video Models Poster Search) was developed through a national casting at www.onemodelplace.com that attracted hundreds of music video models from all over the world. Through this casting process video honeys were selected from Atlanta, L.A., Canada, New York, Detroit, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, Miami, and Washington D.C. These are a few of the Hot Video Honeys 2006 that the video music industry should keep an eye on: Jazmin Velazquez, Donna Baker, Ajay Milan, Rose Washington, Michelle Attai, Jackie Pitcher, Rayne Craft, Amanda Davis, Dazelle Yvette, Norionna Porter, and Mandy Marie.
VIDEO DIMES: A Video Dime is considered to be a recruit to the music video modeling game. They are young ladies who have modeling experience as far as dealing with photographers and agencies but they have no experience on music video sets. They have the look to be considered the next new hot thing in the industry but they lack the experience. A Video Dime has not appeared in a music video or in a magazine spread but they hope to in the near future. These are a few of the Hot Video Dimes that the video music industry should keep an eye on: Michelle Rivers, Rabbitt, Gia Jai, Naiya, Amrit Dhaliwal, Shawna Philips, Milena Roucha, Amber Ettinger, Dalene Costley and Nashifa Bhagwandin.
The exposure a model can gain from being cast in a major music video can lead to opportunities in other aspects of the entertainment industry. Several actresses and entertainers got their start by being a Video Vixen such as LisaRaye, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Traci Bingham, Nia Long, Keshia Knight Pulliam, K.D. Aubert, Leila Arcieri, Angell Conwell, Regean Gomez-Preston and Taraji P. Henson.
At VideoVixens.net it is the mission of this dynamic team to focus on the positives of video modeling and show aspiring models how to parlay the exposure gained to branch off into all aspects of the entertainment industry. www.VideoVixens.net is so unique because of its international appeal and interest of the careers of top music video models that you have seen on BET, VH-1, and MTV. This website allows for the first time in the history of the music video world the opportunity to plug into the national fan base and media interest of these radiant beauties. VideoVixens.net will showcase the hot video projects, video vixens, honeys and dimes spotlight, casting calls, photo shoots, interviews, information directory on music video models, featured websites, corporate banners, video model search, and streaming music videos that are heating the charts.
