New York — Cosmopolitan's editor-in-chief Kate White says that Jennifer Love Hewitt once told her that appearing on the magazine's cover was "every girl's fantasy."
That dream will become reality for one aspiring model. The magazine and TV partner "Entertainment Tonight" are launching the Cosmo Cover Model Search.
Supermodels and famous actresses need not apply -- only new faces are eligible for the contest. Women who are currently modeling can enter if they haven't yet appeared in a major advertising campaign or on a major magazine cover.
Even those who don't want to model can participate by helping to choose the winner. The April issue of Cosmopolitan will present 25 semifinalists, and from March 18 to April 1 readers can vote for their favorite on the magazine's Web site.
The result of that vote narrows the search to four finalists, who will appear in the July issue. Readers can then choose from that field from June 10 to July 1.
"Entertainment Tonight" will chronicle the countdown. The winner will appear on a fall cover.
