Eva and Jessica are Cover Girls!

IMTA alums Eva Longoria and Jessica Biel are on the June covers of popular magazines. Eva graces the cover of June GQ Mexico and was on the cover of Singapore Harper Bazaar in April! Jessica is on the cover of Gotham and the June cover of Allure.

Eva competed at IMTA in 1998 and signed with a manager she had met at the convention. Eva told Pageantry Magazine that, “The first day they signed me I had four auditions...It was pretty fast.” She quickly moved to Los Angeles and landed guest-starring roles on Beverly Hills 90210, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless. In 2003, she took a role as a detective in a TV remake of LA Dragnet and made her big-screen film debut in Carlita’s Secret, and also starred in the films Harsh Times, and The Sentinel. Eva's breakthrough role is as the beautiful Gabrielle Solis on the award-winning Desperate Housewives on ABC.
Jessica's latest project, an animated film called Planet 51, is due in theaters on November 20. She was also voted #11 on this year's Maxim 2009 Hot 100 List and is the new face of Revlon. Jessica competed at IMTA in 1994 where she signed with an agent and manager who helped her land the breakthrough role of Mary Camden on the beloved long-running WB series 7th Heaven. She has starred in many major motion pictures such as I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, The Illusionist, Stealth, Elizabethtown, Home of the Brave, Nailed and Next. Jessica is working on two new films Valentine's Day and The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. Jessica's film Powder Blue is now out on DVD!
