She wore a dress made out of newspaper, got into a “sticky” situation with double-sided tape and earned a spread in the February issue of Marie Claire. Now that Kalyn Hemphill has cat-walked her way to the winner’s circle on Lifetime’s Models of the Runway: Season One, the model/actress/singer is moving her focus from the runway to Broadway.

The triple threat started out performing local theater in her hometown of Lake Jackson, Texas and quickly progressed to larger stages in Houston. There, she took on chorus roles such as Rizzo from Grease, Cinderella, and her personal favorite, a “dancing plate” in the “Be Our Guest” scene of Beauty and the Beast.

“If you had asked me five years ago what my life would be like right now, I would have never guessed I would be on the path that I am on and that I would have won Models of the Runway,” Kalyn said.
