Should a 15-year-old girl be told she’s a supermodel? Sutherland Models thinks so

It’s no surprise that models are in their prime when they’re young, because they’re still, well, youthful, and have yet to develop massive egos. In a competition run by the Sutherland Models agency at the Convention Centre, 15-year-old Anna Stephenson, of Toronto, took first place and was named Sutherland’s supermodel of 2012. Ann Sutherland, the agency’s president, says she is “thrilled to have found such an extraordinary new face—the next Canadian supermodel!” The question now is: will Stephenson be able to maintain a proper work-life balance? We just hope she finishes school, on the off chance that this is just an annual publicity stunt for Sutherland Models. We’d hate to see her at an auto show giggling when gentlemen ask her if she comes with the car.
