Facebook competition helps Hatfield student secure modelling fame

MANY young women dream of appearing in a national ad campaign for a top high street fashion label.

Rosie Hart is no such woman. Because for Rosie, it’s not a dream, it’s a reality.

After finishing in the top five of a competition hosted on social networking website Facebook, Rosie is one of 10 models appearing in the new denim advertising campaign for UK fashion giant Next.

The ads have already appeared in several fashion and gossip magazines, as well as in Next store windows and shopping bags.

And the 21-year-old University of Hertfordshire marketing student hopes it could lead to a few more modelling jobs, before she completes her course.

“I’m not interested in making a career out of it or anything, but I loved every minute of it so I’d welcome any offer with open arms!”
