(IH Live Access) – Model Mariah Cummings is aiming for perfection at the Internet Hollywood party and I don’t think anyone else in the show could really blame her for that. She was recently added on to Samantha Gottlich’s lineup to represent her brand NROR ART and she has been excited since. I caught up with the model earlier today to discuss her big moment that’s about to take place and she has a lot to share. Check it out!
~*~*Internet Hollywood Access*~*~
Internet Hollywood: Hey Mariah! The countdown is on before the magical moment that is expected to one for the ages for upcoming talented in the New England area. Internet Hollywood’s first fashion show is expected to hit the Natick Elks Lodge in Natick, Massachusetts and many people are planning on making special appearances for the occasion. How did you feel when you found out you were chosen by Samantha Gottlich to walk for her brand NROR ART?
Mariah: I was humbled. Samantha is such a gifted artist and designer. Knowing how mindful I am about my craft, I can imagine she was extremely selective in choosing those she feels would represent her brand effectively. I feel truly blessed to have been chosen to help express such creative work.
Internet Hollywood: As the date approaches many people have been expressing how nervous they are now that the show is closer than ever. How do you emotionally feel as you see all the promotion going on. Do you feel nervous at all?
Mariah: While runway work is still relatively new to me, any nerves I could have channel immediately into excitement for such an exhilarating event! With so many ideas and looks I’ve gotten a taste of, I feel intrigued to meet so many influential, beautiful creators.
Internet Hollywood: This will be your very first Internet Hollywood party appearance. Every Internet Hollywood party there is new faces that finds their way into the building and this time you will definitely be one of them. Do you have any worries or goals set that you wish to fulfill during the night of the event?
Mariah: Honestly, I have my fingers crossed that I won’t fall! And if I do, I hope I don’t laugh at myself so hard I can’t get up. Needless to say, my goal is to not do either of those! Also, I want to network with new faces and a few amazing artists I haven’t gotten the chance to meet yet!
Internet Hollywood: One thing I’ve been asking everyone about is the kind of music they would like to hear from the DJ during the event. What genre of music do you feel the most comfortable hearing and if you could get a request in what kind of songs would you like to hear?
Mariah: As a musician, I’m really not too picky. Music is my entire life and drummers can tap into anything.
Internet Hollywood: A lot of people have been revealing their shopping plans for the event and some even did shopping online to get the perfect outfit to show off for the cameras. Have you already decided to do shopping of your own for this event?
Mariah: I definitely have some looks in mind! The only spoiler I’ll give is that I love to accessorize. I guess you’ll have to see the rest when I get there.
Internet Hollywood: What kind of message are you hoping to send to everyone that will be attending this event after the night is over?
Mariah: Ultimately, my entire modeling career is rooted in self-acceptance, empowerment, and body positivity. I strive to project that in my work and I hope to convey that toward others. I spent years hating myself and being cruel to my body, but there is an incredible freedom in self-acceptance and choosing to love yourself. From there, you can empower others. One of my favorite quotes is, “empowered women empower women”, and modeling has shown me the irrevocable truth to that.
Internet Hollywood: Thank you so much for the interview, Mariah. I look forward to meeting you!
