It's nothing new either... I remembered seeing similar posters in Chinatown, and then discovered this website. Also, when I was reading the In-Between World of Vikram Lall, by M.G. Vasanji, the main character's mother continuously made comments about how a certain person, or group wasn't as attractive because they had darker skin.

to be honest...actualy..most Asians..(not Asian Americans) PREFER to look at a model who does not have the typical Asian features...Hooded eyelids, dark skin, long or round face, ..etc... They'd rather look at a model who looks white... Big eyes, etc.... So I'm not surprised Designers haven't emphasized the typical Asian look in their lineup. There's not a big following for that look even for (I'll say Asian natives.

It's often I hear a Filipino mother say, (about newborns) *thank goodness he/she doesn't look too Asian, i.e Chinese* With FIlipino babies, *Chinese looking* babies are kinda like that *red-headed step child* of the caucasian race...I think. And it's not a preferable look. (*from my personal experience*)

i thought models are chosen on the basis of lookign beautiful and interesting and not on the ratio they represent. whats more even the 2% indian american ratio isnt represented and even the models chosen dont just appeal to america but to the whole world.

If that was indeed the case we'd be seeing much more of Yasmin Warsame and less Hana Soukupova.

Actually it's more about appealing to those who consume the most in terms of fashion and its related industries. Otherwise we'd also see alot more of Ujjwallah and Ai as well. It's also about who decides what is "appealing" and who has the power to put images in magazines.

thus we should be blaming the people with the power to determine who is appealing and who isnt. i mean alek was literally forced down peoples throats and now they cant get enough of her or her lookalikes>

I guess that is why so many American models do so well in Asia.
