In 2007, Amanda moved to Nashville where she found work as a stylist for bands and music industry stars. She is currently a full-time wardrobe stylist and costume designer, working on projects ranging from music videos to commercial shoots to red carpet appearances.

Valentine is extremely conscious of how a woman wants to look and feel in her clothes, how those clothes fit into an everyday wardrobe, and is hyper-aware of proportion, line and fit. Growing up in a large family may help Amanda in terms of finding compromise and diplomacy in a team environment. Above all, SHE WANTS IT!

Valentine's favorite past contestants are Jeffrey Sebelia and Gretchen Jones, while her favorite designers are Isabel Marant, Yves Saint Laurent, Balmain, Alexander Wang, Gareth Pugh, Holly Fulton, Vena Cava and Balenciaga. Valentine's style icon is Cindy Crawford — circa 1994 in the MTV House of Style Era.
