As we reported earlier this month, international modeling agency Wilhelmina Models is on the hunt for models over 30 to represent today's woman. The public voted online, and the hunt has been narrowed to 10 finalists -- five of which are 45+.
Surprised? We aren't. The contestants -- from audience favorite Peggy Gregory to the sassy Michele Torres -- are naturally gorgeous and vibrant.
They also have more going on for them than just their winning looks. Four of the five women answered a few of Huff/Post50's "Big Life Questions," sharing their biggest regrets, and what they know now that they wish they knew when they were younger, among other topics. Click through our slideshow to learn more about the finalists.
The finalists will be featured in O, The Oprah Magazine, and the winner will be revealed at the June 27 finale in New York City, sponsored by Macy's and Miraclesuit. Judges include Roshumba Williams, Stacey Fuller VP of Wilhelmina, Bruce Waldman of Miraclesuit and Adam Glassman of O Magazine.
