Elite model Frederique van der Wal will answer questions about her modeling
career and how she has combined her savvy for business with her artistic
talent to develop outside projects when she visits ABC Online on Tueday March
28 at 7 pm ET.

As a student in Holland majoring in economics and languages, Elite model
Frederique had no idea that she would soon experience an amazing career
turnaround in her life. Although headed for the business world, Frederique
was persuaded to enter the Elite "Look Of The Year" contest. She won first
place and walked away with a two-year contract with Elite Model Management,
and a plane ticket to New York.

Once in New York, Frederique began appearing in top magazines, from Vogue and
Harper's Bazaar to Glamour, Mademoiselle and Cosmopolitan. Over the years,
she has graced the covers of many of them, including Cosmopolitan covers shot
by Francesco Sacvullo.

Frederique has been the face of many campaigns, including Revlon's "Most
Unforgettable Women in the World" shot by Richard Avedon. Her campaigns for
Guess? gave her recognizability across the world. She regularly graces the
pages of Victoria's Secret catalogue.

Frederique's celebrity has not escaped the attentioin of the television
medium, either. She has appeared on Entertainment Tonight, CNN, Late Night
with Conan O'Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Extra, Oprah Winfrey,
Lifestyles Of The Rich and Famous, E! Entertainment, MTV and VH-1.

Modelling has given Frederique recognition, notoriety and the tremendous
opportunity to combine her savvy for business with her talent to develop
outside projects. She has created and designed her own swimwear line. She
has launched her own fragrance, "Frederique," and will soon follow with a
body moisturizer and shower gel. Her workout video "Frederique Presents
Chris Imbo's Peak 10" is in stores across the country. Currently, she is
working on an underwear line which will premiere in the latter part of 1995.

One very special lady you don't want to miss. Frederique van der Wal Live in
the Globe! See you there!

Recently graduated with a bachelor's degree from Columbia University and

the consensus of my friends is that this, plus the Sept95 Playboy cover &
photo shoot are all carefully calculated ploys to get back on the hot list
and get back to modeling. Also appeared in The FACE this summer showing
off her tatoos (2 ankle and one right at the end of her spine) as

"She was discovered near an athletic-shoe store in a shopping
mall in Mechanicsburg, PA, where she grew up. Since then Stacey
has made great strides in her modeling career and shown that her
personality runs deep. She can be innocent, quiet and sensitive
one moment, only to turn up as a life-of-the-party jokester the
next. Introspective and thoughtful, Stacey is a faithful devotee
of yoga and dreams of opening her own studio one day."
