2016 Cover Model Search Winners Revealed!

Sep 08, 2016
King Jewelers Reveals 2016 Lifestyle Campaign Starring Cover Model Search Winners Sophie Myers, Allee-Sutton Hethcoat, and Katje Lael

Every year King Jewelers hosts the Cover Model Search- an open contest in which anyone with a dream to become a model may enter for a chance to star in our national lifestyle campaign. This year we were lucky to have our largest number of entries ever, which of course made choosing a winner infinitely more difficult! Rather than choosing just one winner and risk losing out on the opportunity to shoot with such talented models, King Jewelers decided to choose THREE winners in this year’s Cover Model Search, in no particular order, and award ALL THREE winners the grand prize.

Get to know these beautiful, strong, and successful women in their own words! Don’t forget to check back next year for your chance to be chosen as the King Jewelers Cover Model. Keep track of the contest using the hashtag #KJModelSearch and start taking the perfect three images to use as your submission photos. Remember, the winner receives a free photo shoot with award-winning Kristy Belcher Photography, local and national exposure in our King Jewelers lifestyle campaign, and a $1,000.00 gift certificate to King Jewelers!

Sophie Myers

“Hello, my name is Sophie Myers! I am 22 years old and am originally from Nashville, Tennessee. I am currently a student at Middle Tennessee State University studying Marketing and Management. When I have free time I love cooking, exercising, reading, and shopping! I love modeling because it is such a fun experience, and I learn something new each time I get to be a part of a photo-shoot.”

In the photo above, taken from our May shoot, Sophie is wearing a Chopard timepiece, stackable Kwiat bangles, a Majolie curved bar diamond necklace, and A. Link diamond earrings.

Sophie is an absolute pleasure to work with and is eager to learn about every aspect of the industry. We send her our congratulations on her recent engagement and wish her and her fiance all the happiness in the world. Visit Sophie’s website here.

Allee-Sutton Hethcoat

“Hi all! My name is Allee-Sutton Hethcoat. I am a born and raised Nashvillian, a law student at Nashville School of Law and an actor. I love spending time with my family and friends, eating Mexican food, cooking, walking, hiking, watching movies, and traveling.”

In the photo above, taken from our May shoot, Allee stuns in a King Jewelers Private Collection diamond necklace and cuff bracelet, Kwiat diamond ring, bracelet, and earrings, Cartier timepiece, and KJ5 engagement ring.

Allee’s vivacious personality and willingness to work hard for her dreams is truly inspiring! She juggles life as a talented actress, model, and law student and somehow makes it all look easy. We will all be rooting for her as she competes to be Ms. Tennessee USA this October! You can follow Allee on Instagram here.

Katje Lael

“I’m originally from Baltimore, Maryland and have lived in Nashville for seven years. I started modeling about 11 years ago. I was scouted by an agent in DC, was signed, and started working at the age of 15. Shortly after, I fell in love with working behind the scenes as a makeup artist. If I wasn’t in front of the camera, I was behind it interning with a makeup artist. I’ve been fortunate enough to work as a makeup artist and model full time for the past 10 years. I also love wellness and clean living. It’s become a passion of mine to educate others on how to achieve optimal health with the power of essential oils.”

In the photo above, taken from our May shoot, Katje sports a Breitling timepiece, Diamonds by the Yard necklace, Kwiat hoop earrings, cross necklace, and diamond fashion ring, Forevermark diamond fashion ring, and King Jewelers Private Label connected bracelet/ring.

Katje is a true professional and her passion for healthy living and essential oils is infectious. We’re so happy to have worked with her. Visit Katje’s website to learn more about her thriving business as a hair and makeup artist.
