GOLCAR teenager Abi Fox is a modelling star.
She has just been confirmed as the winner of the Sugar/Rimmel Model Competition 2005.
Voted for by readers of Sugar magazine, Abi will appear on the cover of its July issue - and could land a lucrative modelling contract with top agency Storm Model Management.
Abi, 14, will also receive a fantastic trip to the USA, where she'll be given £500 spending money. She will also be photographed for a fashion and beauty feature for Sugar magazine.
But yesterday, the would-be supermodel had more down to earth problems - studies at Colne Valley High School, back in action after Thursday's snowy shutdown.
Her mum Joyce said: "She was absolutely delighted, as we all are.
"Abi never had aspirations to be a model, but that may well change now.
"She entered the competition because they were offering goody bags of make-up and magazines to all entrants.
"Whatever she chooses to do in the future will be because she enjoys it."
Abi is likely to take her mum on the dream holiday to the USA.
And Mrs Fox is certainly looking forward to the magazine coming out in a few months time.
"I'll be so proud to see her as a cover girl".
Sugar Magazine, with the help of Rimmel London and Storm Model Management, scoured shopping centres across the UK and Ireland throughout October 2004.
Abi was spotted at the Meadowhall Shopping Centre in Sheffield and plucked from thousands of entries to be in with the chance of appearing on the cover of Sugar, Britain's biggest selling teenage girl's magazine.
The finalists were invited to London to take part in a fashion photo shoot and were also treated to a celebratory dinner at a top London restaurant.
All six finalists appeared in the March issue of Sugar, which went on sale in January with instructions on how to vote for them via a phone line and text system.
Abi said that her style icon is Kate Moss and if she could be a celebrity she would choose to be Joss Stone.
Sugar is Britain's best-selling teen magazine. It sells 295,364 copies every month and is read by more than 800,000 teenagers.
