America's Next Top Model

Kelly Marie Falk, better known as Isabella Falk, is an American fashion model. She was on cycle 12 of ANTM in 2009, where she was the first girl eliminated.

Early Life

Isabella was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was fifteen years old.[1]

ANTM

Isabella revealed her epilepsy during casting week. She was the eleventh girl chosen to enter the house.

In episode two, Isabella was concerned at the first runway challenge, because the strobe lights might cause her to have a seizure. Luckily, it didn't happen and she walked fine. At the first photoshoot, she kept accidentally putting her arms over her face so the camera could not capture it. In the end, Isabella's struggle showed in her photo, with her pulling out one of the worst pictures in the bunch. She landed in the bottom two with Sandra, and her weaker photo and presence is what sent her home.

Post-Show

Isabella later signed with Elite Model Management in Chicago, under her real name.[2]

She had a cover and spread in Richmond Bride, and was in Iconography the Magazine.[3] She was in a campaign for an epilepsy organization called Purple Day Every Day.[4] She modeled for a lingerie brand called Derriere de Soie.[5]

She is since retired from modeling, and is now working as an artist and yoga teacher.
