A model of success: WVU graduate lands national magazine cover

WVU alumna lands cover of Bella Gladys, a national magazine

West Virginia University alumna Elleyse Gemondo just took her modeling career to the next level, landing her first national magazine cover earlier this summer.

“Last year, Bella Gladys, a high-end publication that features models, brands, designers and photographers from around the world, invited me to be a model in its summer issue of 2017,” Gemondo, fashion, dress and merchandising graduate, said. “We did the photoshoots last fall with two different photographers and teams.”
