JD’s Picks: Caroline West
A weekly update on modeling’s freshest new faces, from photographer, man-about-town, and Twitpic’er JD Ferguson. This week: 5′ 11′ Caroline West. The 17-year-old basketball-playing Virginia native was in New York City on spring break when she attended an open call at Elite and was signed on the spot.

Through my neighbor. She wanted to become a makeup artist and she needed someone to make her book with. When she asked me, I wasn’t really sure about it, but I was going to give it a chance. I loved it.
Is this your first time in New York?
No, but it’s my first time walking around alone and figuring the subway out.
