Balenciaga casting... WOOF.
What boring exclusives, the glaring lack of diversity, and I missed some of their regulars.

Karlie is the fourth (unless I'm forgetting some) high profile model this season who finally debuted at a high profile show which she hadn't done before.

Karlie - Balmain
Olga - Gucci
Magda - Prada
Jourdan - Fendi

I don't know why, but I find it so fascinating.

So these are the following non-Caucasian models who have walked for Balenciaga...

Devon Aoki
Liya Kebede (x 100 , I can't remember how many seasons she's done)
Yasmine Warsame
Liu Wen (x8)
Chanel Iman (x3)
Nyasha Matonhodze
Jeneil Williams

I have to say that I do quite like this rather exclusive group, but its time to bring some more Asian models into the fold, Mr. Ghesquière.

Caroline was there:


style

IDK why she & Fei Fei have skipped 75% of the season. They aren't established enough to be skipping, imo.

^ Fei Fei has had visa issues as far as I heard, so that's why she's not at any shows. IDK why Caroline has suddenly become mega-exclusive though, like really? You're only in your 5th season!

Not to elaborate, but I think Caroline was taking care of her health, she wasn't looking too hot at the HC shows.

The more I dwell on Balenciaga the more I like it (besides the lack of diversity). The girls, even the ones I wasn't taken by, seemed to fit their slightly tough yet natural beauty aesthetic well.

Come to think of it, what stunned me the most about Balenciaga is the disappearance of label favorites: Aymeline, Katlin, Mirte...that was definitely unexpected.

But how do you have visa issues in four different countries at the same time? It's a different visa for every country.

Hye Park walked Balenciaga her first 5 or 6 seasons before Liu Wen took her spot as the token asian.

I agree with everyone about balenciaga, very dissapointing casting. The reason why I love the casting there usually is because he is normally fairly loyal to his favorites, and they stay with him season after season. This time around it seemed to be all new girls. Blah

Walking Balenciaga used to be so special b/c if a new girl walked the show there was a good chance she would stick around and walk it again next year, but with half the cast being new(ish) that obviously is even more improbable. Now its like Prada, very blip-ish.
