Famous child model Fatima Ptacek graced the Time Out Kids cover way back in 2005

kidshrmini09 If the little girl on our November-December 2005 cover at left looks familiar, you've got a good eye. A recent article in the New York Post (which got picked up all over the place ) profiled the now nine-year-old Fatima Ptacek on what it's like to be a super-successful child model in NYC. The Queens elementary schooler has been seen in Gap ads, Saturday Night Live skits and McDonald's commercials. But months before she was signed by the Wilhelmina modeling agency, she was our cute cover girl, and also modeled funky winter styles in a fashion story . Fatima stopped by the Time Out Kids office earlier this week to pose for some new pictures and update us on her success. Read the interview here . Now we don't want to brag or anything, but it kind of feels like we discovered her!
