The gorgeous Taylor Hannum (@taylorhannum_) plays Robin Thicke’s betrayed lover in his latest music video, “Get Her Back”! The mesmerizing visuals perfectly compliment the video. Check it out below!
We recently chatted with Jocelyn ( @jocelyncoe_ ) and her mother, Jennifer Coe, who was also a model! Now we know where Jocelyn gets her good looks from!
Nous Models: What made you want to model?
Jennifer Coe: A friend of my parents was friends with Nina Blanchard and he suggested I model. My parents were not really informed about the modeling biz, but thought that it might be a good way to pay for college. I worked in a retail clothing store during high school (at $1.65/hr!) and needed more $$ for college.
N: When did you start modeling, and how did you like it?
Jennifer: Nina Blanchard found me when I was in high school. She shared my photos with Eileen Ford, who invited me to live with her in New York the summer after graduation! It took a long time for me to find my niche…. Back to LA for school, NY in the summers. I booked a Breck shampoo commercial which was cut into 5 commercials, and could afford to stay long enough to find steady work in the catalogue side of the business. I was with Ford for 21 years… a lot of very good times and happy memories!
N: Has the industry changed since then?
Jennifer: YES! Trememdously—the internet is the most obvious change. Portfolios online, clients online, and communications much faster. We didn’t even have cell phones—I carried rolls of dimes and knew where every phone booth in town was!
N: How do you feel about Jocelyn’s career?
Jennifer: Mixed—I know how hard it can be. Few careers require constant job interviews and rejection which at times can feel personal. Sometimes it is hard to keep one’s spirits up when you are “judged”. You learn every “flaw” you have physically, which can be a bit cumbersome. However, the opportunities to travel, meet so many different people, and make a good living at a young age are very rewarding.
N: Jocelyn, did your mom influence you to become a model?
Jocelyn: Yes! She was a really good model. I look at her photos regularly for inspiration. She didn’t want me to go this way, but she knows how excited I am about it so she’s doing what she can to help me! I feel very lucky and proud to have ended up at Nous!
N: Jennifer, anything you’d like to say to Jocelyn and other young models?
Jennifer: I’d like to remind her that modeling is for young people, and that she will not always be young. Remind her that modeling can be used to open doors—and she should be aware of those openings. Remind her to enjoy, but work hard and never stop learning—in school or out of it. She will be her own boss and run her own business!
Wise words, indeed!

The lead single “Maps” will be released September 2 on Maroon 5’s new album, V.

Who else could look this good after being hit by a car!? Check out the full video below!
Weekend 1 of the 2014 Coachella festival has wrapped, and a few of our girls were front and center for it all. Alexis Ren, Monica Ollander (arriving by helicopter, no less), Brianna Gilchrist, Laura Harrier, and Cameron Richardson were just a few of the thousands of people that flocked to Indio, CA for the three day event. It was beyond awesome, and we’ve got the pictures to prove it.
We had so much fun at our Sweet 16 Party last Friday at The Warwick! It was such a beautiful space and Bolthouse Productions put on the most amazing party, we could not have had a better time. Rony’s Photobooth came out and took these amazing photos documenting our night. Thank you to everyone who helped make it happen!
Sunday is Father’s Day, a day to celebrate the dads, grandfathers and the other father figures in our lives. Read as our models share what they have planned for the special men in their lives. From plane trips, dinner dates, neat gifts, these girls have covered it all!
“I like to keep it simple with my papa. He always want some quality time with his kids, so I make sure that I spend lots of time with him doing what he loves most. But I also try to shower him with his all time favorites. This fathers day, I managed to buy him a ticket to LA to visit me next month, and packaged a big box full of all his favorite workout attire, and all of his favorite goodies for him to enjoy!” – Lauren Johnson
“This year he is getting a sampler package of cigars and season one of the Newsroom on DVD.” – Lisa Marlier
“I’m planning on getting him this photo framed and sending him a gift card to a nice restaurant.” – Chebo
“I bought my dad an ivory razor.” – Giza Lagarce
“For Father’s Day I’ve decided I’m going to make my dad a pie from scratch (his fav) and I’m putting together a small scrapbook. He hates getting presents, so he actually planned a surprise for the rest of us.” – Kym Ellis
Whether you’re based in Los Angeles or not, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard of Runyon Canyon. According to their official site, “Runyon Canyon is a 160-acre park smack dab in the heart of everything – a stone’s throw away from the historic Hollywood strip.” The park provides various hiking trails, scenic outlooks, free daily yoga classes and areas for meditating. Angelinos can often spot fitness instructors, celebrities and our models of course while hiking.
