Are you the world’s next top supermodel?

No, Tyra won’t be jumping out with some wacky costume for you to wear in this competition.  The Ford supermodel of the year competition is much more conventional than the sensational reality shows in which average women try to claw their way to “supermodel” status.

At the open casting, on Saturday at the W Hotel in Westwood, wannabe models will have their snapshots taken and walk for Ford agents.  This weekend's winner will represent the U.S. in the world finals in Sao Paolo, Brazil.  And the winner of the world competition will receive $250,000 and a contract with Ford.

But just like a little show called “American Idol,” you don’t necessarily have to take first prize to launch a successful career.  Past runners-up in the Ford competition include Chanel Iman and Alexina Graham -- both uber-models of the moment.

Think you’ve got what it takes to rule the runway? Register here.
