Guess? Who This Lovely Model Is
Megan Ewing (born September 30, 1984) is an American model who was born in Abilene and grew up in Brady, Texas. She is the middle child of three.
Megan Ewing is notable for her freckles. Ewing is very well remembered as the Guess? jeans girl who starred in a series of provocative ads. Then, she abruptly disappeared from the scene. What happened? Let's see if we can find out.
Of mixed German and Mexican heritage, Megan noticed a model search casting notice set up by her local newspaper and attended; a scout liked her look and she was off to Dallas.
I was discovered by my agent, Ty Kilinc of Clipse Management, at a model search in Texas.In Dallas, Megan participated in the Model Search of America convention.
That led her to sign with Ty Kilinc of Clipse Model Management, and later with Marilyn Agency of Paris.
Megan's first paying job was with Abercrombie and Fitch when in her mid-teens. People quickly noticed her piercing eyes.
After some work with Assoulin (photographed by Mario Sorrenti), and Abercrombie & Fitch (Bruce Weber), Megan moved on to a major Guess? campaign in January 2000.
Megan's Guess work is what most of her fans - of which there are many - remember Megan Ewing for. It received widespread distribution and put her in the Big Leagues of modelling.
Megan then moved on to a Wailea campaign with Adriana Lima, and then to Victoria's Secret for some catalog work. During this period, Megan appeared in the Lenny Kravitz "Believe in Me" video in 2002.
Megan's covers include:
- Italy: 'Elle' - July 2001
- Mexico: 'Elle' - July 2002
Megan Ewing took a break from modelling to have her son sometime around 2004, and her departure appears to be permanent. But, you never know, she apparently is still working with Marilyn Agency in New York City.
Megan is quite happy raising her boy.
She does not appear to miss modelling. She has posted a message on Model Mayhem:
Again, I'm not working at this point in time. If you message me with a job offer and I don't reply, this is why, thanks! I will also not accept any jobs that do not go through my agency, Marilyn. Sorry, it's for my own safety, and I'm under contract!
However, she is still young and you never know when the modelling bug will bite again.
While Megan has a Twitter page, she appears not to be updating it these day.
Megan lists her home as Brady, Texas, so apparently she has gone back there. Wherever she is, we wish Megan Ewing well.
