HOUSTON — What does one wear to a model search? For Houston teens, it seems that basic is better.
The place was packed with pretty young things in basic jeans and T-shirts when Delia’s staged a model search Aug. 23 at its newest store in the Houston Galleria mall. About 150 hopeful applicants with friends or parents in tow lined up at the store to enter the "Supermodel of the World" national contest sponsored by Delia’s and Ford Models.
