Love Culture’s Next Top Model

Love Culture Blogger Brunch Recap

January 8, 2016


Booze, brunch, and babes

In January we gathered some of our fav blogger gal pals for a mimosa brunch at ZINC CAFE & MARKET, a trendy spot in the Arts District of Los Angeles. With floor to ceiling glass walls and rustic wooden tables, it was the perfect place for girls to dress up and take photos for the ‘gram. The babes mingled while enjoying flowing glasses of mimosas and stacked plates of buttery avocados, fresh chopped salad, and garlic-mushroom rice.



To make it a little more interesting than your run-of-the-mill blogger brunch, we threw in an ANTM twist. Our very own Christina hosted the brunch as chrisTYRA, while our noted fashion photographer Anne and fabulous stylist Jerome served as judges.


There are ten beautiful girls who stand before me, but only nine will continue on…

After a few mimosa refills, the manager of Zinc popped in the room to announce, “...TYRAAAA MAAAIL!”

The time had come to decide Love Culture’s NextTop Model.

Each girl had three minutes to go at the racks of clothing we brought in, and style out a complete outfit. Our two photographer friends, @ryanbyryanchua and @alecdibell , then took the girls outside of Zinc in their new LC outfits for a mini photoshoot.

Take a peek at all the fun outfits below!
