I do like Phelora even for a new model she has lots of expression and faces. She can only get better.

Her face does nothing for me, just the skin and body. SA is the right market for her.

8) Rose Cordero
9) Joan Smalls
10) Gracie Carvalho
11) Lyndsey Scott
12) Lais Ribeiro

14) Wakeema Hollis
15) Ariel Meredith
16) Ana Bela Santos (i know she doesn't do a lot of runway or eds but she's just sooo gorgeous & i don't understand why. maybe she should change agencies)
17) R'el dade

Great list! I hope to see more Sedene in the future.

does it bother anyone else that black models are STILL struggling?! i thought the mood had changed in the f/w 2010-2011 & s/s 2011-2012 fashion season but it seems to be changing back. it really IRKS me to see bland models with lackluster personalities & competent walks at best booking great shows while there's still a quota on how many if any black girls should be in a show. to me the ONLY reason to hire someone (black, white, asian, latina, middleeastern, biracial or other) should be:

a) are they pretty
b) do they fit into the clothes
c) can they walk
d) do they have a personality
e) can they portray what i'm going for (elegant, sexiness, innocence etc)

anything else is just irrelevent

Her name is Phelora and she is 19.
