‘Top Model’ Bre Makes a Visit to the District

Taking a break from the catwalks of Valentino and Prada, “America’s Next Top Model” star Bre paid a visit to the District on Thursday night.

“We’re opening a new club called Elevation and Temptation at R n R Bar and Lounge,” she said.

The model also plans to make an important announcement concerning her career.

“We’re just gonna have a good time tomorrow, have a couple of cocktails and enjoy ourselves,” she said.

Recently, she was signed to the major modeling agency, FORD Models. In addition, she has shot a commercial for Pantene Pro-V, which will air in September and completed a photo shoot with CosmoGirl  Magazine in August. She also returned to her roots with “America’s Next Top Model” when she did a photo shoot with Jocelyn for the eighth season of the program.

Born Brittney Scullark in New York, the model and actress has been blazing a trail for herself since her worldwide debut on the Tyra Banks’ hit  television show. As a little girl, Scullark started her path on the road to success by posing for family pictures and swimming competitively.

At the age of 12, she started to do runway fashion for the likes of Twist Magazine and Cosmo.

However, it was not until high school that she truly fell in love with fashion. She worked in retail and realized that she had a talent for putting clothes together. At Sullivan College Upstate New York, she studied international sales and interned with Vincent Nessi’s Showroom. By 2005, she found herself on cycle 5 of “America’s Next Top Model,” beating out 36,000 girls for a spot in the house.

“I have to say that I’m truly blessed. The show itself was phenomenal. It was really a stepping stone for my career,” she said.

After winning third place, she has kept the ball rolling, despite the trend reality television stars often face.

“A lot of times reality television stars have their 15 minutes of fame and then they fall off the map. I would hate to be on reality TV,” said sophomore finance major Kellen Sims.

According to Scullark, it takes time.

“What happens a lot of times with reality celebrities is that you’re so excited to be in the industry,” she said. “When you pace yourself it takes you from being the jack-of-all-trades to becoming a master at something,” she added.

Scullark’s patience has paid off. In March, she was featured on BET’s Rip the Runway and New York radio station HOT 97’s fashion show. She has also been featured in several magazines including Essence, Vibe, and Hype Hair. She has a print deal with Soft Sheen Carson, as well as a commercial with Dark and Lovely hair line. To top it off, she will be hosting Music Choice’s first interactive music video show titled “Certified,” airing on cable television.

“I think it’s nice that she’s trying to continue her career, I just hope that she doesn’t end up like everyone else,” Sims said.
Scullark knows the importance of remembering where home is.

“Most of all, I’m always gonna be humble,” she said.

Content with her career, Bre does not have any complaints about her status. If there is anyone to compete with, “I’m in competition with myself,” she said. “I’m in a good space right now.”
