Model Search

Update: Our 2019 Search is now closed. Thank you for your interest. Please watch this page for future opportunities and announcements. 

Derriere de Soie is actively seeking women to represent our brand in upcoming advertisements and marketing campaigns. But: this isn’t your average model call. We want to get to know you – what your interests are, and why you feel you are a Derriere de Soie woman. We want to even out the field of representation in our marketing materials: if you’ve never thought of yourself as a “model-type” we want to talk to you! Over 65? Awesome! Have wrinkles or stretch marks? Not a problem! We want to put more realistic images of women into the world – in part to combat excessive photoshopping, but also to celebrate that perfection is boring, and that beauty is not one size or shape.


It is so important to us to show people as they are in our ads – we don’t photoshop the women we feature, and we won’t be photoshopping anyone in this campaign. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and we’d rather stand with our clients, and make the stand, for bodies as they are.

We stand for this for ourselves, our friends, and our children – because every body is a good body. Every person has something to offer this world, and everyone deserves to be represented.

We did our first model call in Charlottesville in 2015 – and are so excited to do another in Roanoke to celebrate our new store location. We’ll be accepting submissions until June 10, 2019 – with a photo shoot occurring sometime in July 2019, in the Roanoke area.

Interested? Here’s how to apply.

1.) Copy/Paste the interview questions at the bottom of this page into an email – and answer the questions to help us get to know you better. Please note that you must be over the age of 18, willing to sign a model release to work with us, and able to get to the shoot location in the Roanoke area.
2.) Attach at least 1 full body photo (with your clothes on please!), and one headshot to your email. These do not need to be professionally done.
3.) Include anything else about your story to help us get a feel for your personality. If you’re active on social media or have a blog/website, send us the link. Please make sure to also answer the required questions listed below.


Interview Questions:

What is your full name?
How old are you?
Best email and phone number to contact you at:

If you could tell your 13 year old self anything, what would it be?

Please note that our stores are unable to answer any questions regarding the search, and that it will take us some time to go through the submissions. If you have a question about the application process, please send your inquiries to us via the email above.

We anticipate making our final selections, and notifying selected individuals around June 20, 2019.

Thank you so much for your interest in Derriere de Soie, and in our mission to empower women and girls to see their own beauty. We feel that as a lingerie brand, it is our responsibility to put positive imaging into the world – and we are so excited to have your help with this.
