Eden Wood Modeling

Eden Wood Modeling, Behind a velvety curtain in a basement bar, chubby-cheeked little girls poke their heads out, bop tentatively to tinny music and dart their eyes around the room. All but one: Eden Wood. It’s showtime, and she’s got this.
The lights get bright, the volume goes up and out she struts, shaking her hips to “Achy Breaky Heart.” She slaps her bottom. She tosses her rhinestone-studded jean jacket into the crowd. After two minutes, she sashays backstage for the first of what will be several costume changes today.
So it goes for a brand ambassador, former pageant queen and an aspiring “model/actress/scientist/rock star” (her words). At 6 years old, her days can be twice as long as her age.
“It’s what she’s supposed to do,” said Wood’s mother, Mickie Wood, 46. “We didn’t go looking for it but we’re not stupid.”
Followers of the pint-size pageant set know Wood from “Toddlers and Tiaras,” the TLC show that made her famous. Over the summer, after winning more than 300 titles during her nearly five-year pageant career (she started at 14 months), the Arkansas native retired from the circuit to move onward and upward . “I think she’s following in the footsteps of some pretty big people who have done pageants, like Oprah Winfrey,” Mickie Wood told “Good Morning America” in July.
Step one: Serve as the face and feet of Cicciabella’s Cowgirl Riders line of boots. (Think Uggs with pointy toes.) More than half a dozen girls joined Wood for Thursday’s runway show turned dance-off in New York City’s Bryant Park Hotel. While some of them faltered when it came time to hit the catwalk, Wood nailed her three numbers, which included a Michael Jackson style moonwalk and a performance of her first single, “Cutie Patootie.”
