Don’t like her, i don’t think she’ll b a good model! But anyway good luck!

She is way to young to be getting into the model industry. You need to be mature and be able to handle major rejection. I do not think she is at that point yet. She is pretty tho.Maybe in the next 4 years or so she will be able to handle it. Modeling is probably the toughest industry. This is not the time to be getting into modeling. She should focus all her energy into acting.

I had no idea she was only 14! Though that’s about average for acting/modeling (Mila Kunis was that young when 70’s started, models are almost always start in the 13-16 range, etc.) I think this is a smart move on her part. Success in the entertainment business can be gone in a flash, she’s just taking advantage of every opportunity while she still has a chance. Good for her.

Whoever says 14 is young is just dumb. Modeling careers usually end at 21! Wow, your smart.

Taylor has an extremely classic look that i believe will make her stand out on the runway these days, and the fact that she is only 14 makes it even more impressive.

CHEAP publicity stunt. C’mon, what happened to IMG’s standards?

I think she’s way too young to be a model – it’ll screw up her perception of life. She also is kind of gawky and has a strange nose. Seeing her modeling for a product wouldn’t make me want to buy it.

Erin on

She looks like she’s 20, which is gross.

But she is gorgeous and I love the show and I love her character and I am rooting for her =]

I think she will make a great commercial model

I think that she is way too young to get into something like that but I also think that if I had the oppurtunity to do it as well then I would take it too!
