      Fashion Talk: In the know with top model Bianca Chardei

      COLUMBIA (WACH)-If you cycle your fashion obsession back to September 2009, you may remember America's Next Top Model Cycle 13.

      One of the contestants, Columbia's own, Bianca Richardson, was a 21-year-old student and aspiring model was living in Washington, D.C.

      During casting, Bianca (who now goes by â??Bianca Chardeiâ??) revealed that she had just come out of an abusive relationship which prompted her to shave her head.

      Fast forward to episode five when Bianca would be sent home and her next journey would begin. Since ANTM, Bianca has signed with Wilhelmina Models, been featured in Campaigns for Jeffrey Campbell Shoes, Indique Hair International and two upcoming Fall Campaigns, Espion Collection and Aman Itomi Jewelry Collection. â??

      She is also preparing for her television show and her recipe book will be released in January. She also started an organization called â??Love Yourselfâ?? geared towards Young Women ages 12-25. Most recently, Bianca has decided to get her hometown fashionistas "In the Know." Join her and myself on Good Day Columbia, bi-weekly, for Fashion Talk to discuss every aspect of fashion.

      We know you're talking about it around the house, nail salon, beauty shop anyway, now you can do it with a little more expertise.
