E! Launches New Supermodel Docu-Series Starring Devon Windsor and Olivia Culpo
E! just announced a new docu-series titled “Model Squad,” with a preview special scheduled to air on February 12, during New York Fashion Week. The show, which will officially launch later this year, follows some of today’s most in-demand models — like Devon Windsor, Shanina Shaik, and Olivia Culpo — as they navigate the glamorous (and not-so-glamorous) world of fashion.
Meet the show’s full cast of characters, below, and prepare yourself for the drama to come!
1. Devon Windsor
Windsor was discovered by a local photographer at a bar-mitzvah party in her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri.

2. Olivia Culpo
As a student at Boston University, Culpo entered the Miss Rhode Island competition on a whim. She went on to win and also took the crown in Miss USA and Miss Universe in 2012, making her the first US contestant to win Miss Universe in 15 years. Since then, she has worked with several top fashion brands including Cartier, Tod’s, Timex and L’Oreal and has amassed a following of 2.1 million fans on Instagram.
3. Shanina Shaik
Melbourne, Australia native Shaik began her modeling career at age eight and received her big break in 2013, courtesy of the Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show.

5. Daniela Braga
Discovered in her native São Paolo, Brazil, Daniela received her big break in the Givenchy campaign in 2012, shot by Mert and Marcus.

Additionally, Daniela has become a favorite of fashion legend Carine Roitfield and is often featured in CR Fashion Book. Daniela has appeared on covers of V Magazine and Harper’s Bazaar and featured in several notable publications including British Vogue, ELLE, Glamour and L’Officiel.
6. Hannah Ferguson

7. Ping Hue
Hue was born and raised on Manhattan’s Bowery Street and landed her first editorial feature in Vogue China alongside supermodels Liu, Tao, Danni Li, and Du Juan, photographed by Dan Jackson. Always an overachiever, Ping balanced her budding modeling career with a college education — initially studied nursing and chemical engineering — and graduated with a degree in finance. In addition to portfolio spreads in Teen Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, and 10 Magazine, Ping has walked in shows for Yohji Yamamoto, Polo Ralph Lauren, Naeem Khan, Vivienne Tam, Marchesa, Zimmerman and Ports 1961, during the international collections season.

Additionally, Caroline co-starred in Funny or Die’s Swimsuit Issue: Climate Change Edition alongside Hannah Ferguson and Erin Heatherton.
9. Ashley Moore
Moore hails from Oceanside, California but lived all across the country growing up because both of her parents were in the military. Before going to college, Ashley begged her mom to go to Los Angeles for two weeks to try and make it as a model. She went to various open calls and got turned away due to her height. She was eventually signed by Nous Model Agency, and since then she has graced the cover of ARCADIA magazine and appeared in editorials for GQ, Seventeen, Cosmopolitan and Nylon.
