1) How, in a cast of more than 20, do you not cast a single non-Caucasian?
2) When you book Liisa Winkler to open your show, and follow with exclusives on Taryn Davidson and Amanda Laine, why wouldn't you tip off the media?
Wiinkler, for those that don't know, is one of the most underappreciated models in the days before Daria.
The Belleville model, and wife to Canadian ballet star Ryan Boorne, was an international fashion superstar (and is one of my personal, all-time favourites).
I don't want to go overboard, but Winkler deserves a lot of credit for the success today's Canadian models enjoy. She, as much as anyone, showed you could be a major industry player AND be pleasant to be around.
One of my favourite memories in fact, is of Wiinkler flying home to assist with the Canadian Model & Talent Convention. There was no attitude, no attention-starved antics... just a girl that wanted to be helpful.
I love that she opened Caoc's show... just wish I had known beforehand so I could thank her myself... as you all should.
