Character Descriptions and Notes (plus Storyline if applicable):

[CHIC MOM] Female. Mid-30’s. Caucasian or Ethnically Ambiguous. Fairly tall and slender with enough athleticism to let us know she appreciates the outdoors. A primarily white chic with an awesome mixed ethnicity that skews Euro/global. Someone like a Charlize Theron, Jessica Alba, Eva Green or Penélope Cruz.

[DAUGHTER] Female. 6-8. Caucasian or Ethnically Ambiguous. Will match the looks of our CHIC MOM. Two girls will be chosen. Girls should range from straight Caucasian to a slight mix of ethnicity to skew Euro/global. Should look like they could be the daughter of Charlize Theron, Jessica Alba, Eva Green or Penélope Cruz, for examples.
