    Tashia Senn’s trunk show on March 27 had more than just fashion. It also had the fashion-able, including Bianca, the bald beauty from “America’s Next Top Model” who kept fellow contestants on their toes in cycle 13. Looking stunning in drape-y black jumpsuit, the model sat down with S2S to chat about what she’s been up to since her stint on “ANTM.” 

    She first had to comment on one particular piece she noticed during Tashia’s show: a tan jumper with a high collar and exposed zipper that she thought was truly fabulous. “I really, really liked that,” she said. “It’s more my style.”

    So what has she been up to? She’s currently a senior at Howard University, majoring in public relations and minoring in fashion merchandising. As an only child, and an only grandchild, Bianca said her mom and grandmother made so many sacrifices for her when she was growing up in South Carolina. 

    “To me, that’s what I owe them,”she said. “So if it takes me not sleeping for a couple years, that’s fine! At least I have that to show them, and then I’ll do what I want to do.”

    As far as her modeling goes, Bianca recently signed to Wilhelmina Models, Inc. She’s working on new pictures for her portfolio. “I’m kinda revamping and reinventing myself and kind of changing my image altogether,” she said, adding that the new Bianca makes time to speak to youth and host events.
    She is also looking to establish some sort of fashion outlet in her hometown, citing Oscar James and Peggy Dillard as some fabs in the fashion business who hail from South Carolina. “There’s a lot of talent where I’m from,” she said.
    The other project on her mind, and probably the most fun to work on, is a recipe book. “I can cook!” Bianca said with a laugh. She’s debating on possible titles, including Who Says Models Can’t Cook? She calls the theme, “contemporary meets southern cooking.” She lists fried shrimp, a recipe passed down from her grandmother, and lasagna (yum!) as two recipes to look out for.
