Meet Jocelyn Téyler

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jocelyn Téyler.

Jocelyn, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started modeling in 2018 where I met creative director Lana Rae who hired me for numerous fashion-related opportunities. I was booked for several TV fashion segments on Fox, NBC and CBS.

I was later hired by Chris Bivins for music videos and other related bookings. My first shoot was for an innovative silent disco commercial for Tostitos on BET. This led to more fashion shows and fashion events with The Doll House Boutique and many others.

Working with Dorothy Milone and other influencers, I was granted early access to the new Reels app on Instagram. We connected with other creatives and had a blast creating content all over LA to add to our posts.

I pride myself on giving back to the community whenever I can. I’ve enjoyed working with well-known artists, Jen The Body Painter. She used me as a human canvas for an in-store promotion for Target and Casey Cares Foundation. We helped raise money for critically ill children and their families.

I also still like to pick up the makeup brushes to help out when possible. I am proud of the work that I did with the Denny’s restaurant chain for their “Hungry for Education” campaign.

So far, two of the pinnacles of my modeling career was a shoot for Chris Brown’s “Black Pyramid clothing line along with the phenomenal opportunity to model for Snipes USA during its campaign to honor Women’s History Month.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It is really disheartening when I do not get a gig based on my height because clearly this is something that I cannot control. Another challenge for me has been coming to a mental understanding of the difference between positive feedback on Instagram and my ultimate selection for an audition. Likes on social media are not necessarily representative of a model’s ability to walk the runway, present herself appropriately on television, or even interact effectively with officials in the modeling industry. Anyone can post a decent picture on Instagram and get a bunch of likes, but to be a model requires some real-life legwork.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I am a model and I enjoy every minute of it! One of the true highlights of my career so far was seeing my image plastered in the storefront windows of DTLR stores. I hope that I can inspire others to get out of their comfort zones and risk it, do what you love and put the hard work in.

You can catch me this Christmas in the new BET movie “The Holiday Heartbreak”. Don’t blink (hahaha!)

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I plan on never giving up, I’ve worked so hard to get to where I’m at and what I’ve accomplished. I just plan on continuing to accomplish great things. I have bigger dreams I want to travel the world and work with as many creatives as I possibly can
