Model laid the groundwork early


Even before she could officially call herself a fashion model, Brooke Arnold was laying the foundation for her future career.

Growing up, the now 16-year-old would practice putting on makeup, teaching herself to style her hair and picking out trendy attire (with a casual flair, thank you very much). To top it off, she enjoys getting her nails done and shopping.

Brooke started getting more serious about modeling when she enrolled in, and graduated from Barbizon School of Modeling and Acting.

Now she has walked runways from New York to Tennessee and has been published in several magazines.

Most recently, she has booked walks with Victoria Henley. Victoria reached out to Brooke last February and was offered opportunities to walk in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. at the Magnifique fashion competition (where she was one of the winners), NYC and Los Angeles. She is currently most often seen wearing designs by Renee Soucy.

In addition to modeling, Brooke is trying her hand at acting.  She played opposite the lead in a short film called “After the Veil,” which was shot in Harlem.

Brooke also is the typical teen: hanging out with friends, playing volleyball and basketball and driving her 1992 Chevy pick-up truck.

Besides modeling and acting, Brooke is looking to study law in college.

Watch for Brooke as she grows in the modeling and acting industry.
