Dallas Austin represents on "Supermodel"

  • Austin calls the shots

We knew Justin Timberlake is behind William Rast jeans and P Diddy is the namesake of Sean John. But we didn't realize Dallas Austin has his own clothing line, called Rowdy — after his record label — until last night, when the Atlanta super producer appeared on Bravo's "Make Me a Supermodel."

Apparently, Austin needed some new faces for his advertising campaign and the MMAS kids were brought in to compete to be in the six shots that would be used (they didn't say where they'd be used).

During a long photo shoot on a Manhattan rooftop, with Austin providing some art direction suggestions, the three female models were asked to lose their shirts. Not surprisingly, more of their shots ended up making the final cut. As she's done several times this season, Salome — the curvy brunette whom I've picked to win the whole show — easily won the photo-shoot competition.

A little research shows that Rowdy Clothing made its debut at Bill Hallman's Virginia-Highland Boutique early last year, so maybe I have seen the line, but it didn't make a strong impression — unlike fellow Atlantan Andre 3000's Benjamin Bixby line. Now those are some wild clothes!
