Also I just realised she's so soft-looking, not to sound weird or anything..

It's clever to start with domestic market, I mean the tendency has changed dramatically from baby face to a more mature look such as Aymeline Valade,Saskia de Brauw, Kati Nescher etc, who knows how the international market will react ? But im not saying Gemma has no chance to make it , on the contrary i think she has special advantages , she might become the only supermodel of 2010s if she didn't give up early, nobody could get the hype as Gemma could, even after several years she quit, the comeback rumors attracted more discussion than IT girls do, she's unique and irreplaceable ,anyway her comeback is certainly epic no matter what results it will lead

I don't know how things will be but i'm happy she wants to be back, i quite miss her. I think if she wants a big comeback in the big scenes she has to do a full runway comeback like new girls, not 50 shows but at least 20/25 shows, i doubt she will book covers like Vogue Paris and UK or campaigns like Roberto Cavalli or Versace without making a runway comeback. Yes, she was one of the biggest girls 5 years ago, but the industry move on very fast and i doubt they're waiting for her, i think it won't easy after so many years but i hope i'm wrong of course

I dunno... i think the industry IS waiting for her, actually. She had legendary status. I wouldn't be surprised if high-profile clients snapped her up.

People to this day STILL talk about her. She hasn't modeled in FIVE YEARS.

While I would be ecstatic to see Gemma return to hf modelling, I am wondering if perhaps she has signed with IMG Aus in a manner similar to special bookings, like many actors and celebrities are signed with modelling agencies. After all she has been pursuing acting quite seriously and like you say OllieJE, the market and aesthetic has changed from her doll-face alien hey-days.

Still, praying to the gods to see her in Vogue soon.

I personally think the industry would and should pay whatever she demands for her return to modelling. Someone just needs to hand her a blank cheque. This thread will blow up when she returns, if she returns.

I was just thinking about his!! Some models become irrelevant if they miss one season and she's been gone not ONE picture and she still has soooo many followers, fans. I'm sure she's going to be demanded!

Pat McGrath just tweeted a old picture of Gemma that was shot by Meisel. There is definitely industry love there!

I was a latecomer to the world of fashion and models. And even before I knew anything of either...I knew exactly who Gemma was how big of a deal she was. She was transcendent. There's no way she's not coming back to a major Vogue cover and an to a high end blue chip campaign. I doubt she'd come back just for the minor leagues....and I doubt she'd plot a comeback without doing some vetting to see if there is any interest by the big names. I'm confident if she decided to come back it's because she already has something worth coming back for booked.

That's for sure. Edward Enninful also tweeted about missing Gemma. It's amazing to see that truly influential people in fashion miss her and want to see her back. I hope her comeback is epic.
