America's Next Top Model

Sara Albert-Hallmark was a contestant on cycle 6 of ANTM in 2006. She placed fourth.

Early Life

Sara was working as a Marketing Assistant for the Advisory Board Company in Washington, D.C. before the show.[1]


Sara was known to not audition for the show, but be found by a producer while shopping at a mall, who convinced her to join.

She had natural talent despite never having any previous modeling experience. However, the judges constantly called her passion into question. In episode seven, she was placed in the bottom two because of this, but was saved over Leslie.

In episode eleven, she got into a rivalry with Joanie because Sara stole Joanie's poses for the photoshoot on an elephant. That judging, Joanie was called first while Sara second.

Sara was eliminated in episode twelve.


Sara signed with Elite Model Management. She had a cover and spread in SacTown and Engaged!, the latter with her husband John Hallmark. She walked in the fall '06 runway show for Jared Gold.

She retired from modeling, and worked at Hogan Lovells as a law firm associate.[2] She's currently working as an attorney for the US Department of Justice.[3]


Her makeover ranked number 16 on MsMojo's YouTube video "Top 20 Worst America's Next Top Model Makeovers".[4]
