I agree. I would include Marikka and Nele as well. They seem to have a good chance in Europe, along with those other girls mentioned. It'll be interesting to see the shift when it comes to London and Paris especially since there are a lot more new faces who haven't shown up yet.

Calvin cast was just awful. The cast was weak overall and I found the complete lack of models of color repulsing. Definitely my least favorite cast of theirs.

this may be a silly question, but it seems the casting process is quite lengthy so I was wondering how the models are chosen for other fashion weeks for example London when they aren't even in the city because they're in New York doing NY fashion week? Are they casted for London, Paris, Milan way in advance?
Hope this makes sense lol!

There are castings in each city, but a lot of the casting for Europe does happen in advance. Casting directors and fashion houses know who they like from seasons past, and since many casting directors work in NY as well as Europe by the time the shows in Europe start they already have a sense of who they liked from their NY castings. And for some big shows (Prada, Balenciaga, etc) pre-castings are held in NY during NYFW and options for exclusives are placed even before NYFW starts.

calvin klein's exclusives this season might be the most underwhelming in ages. they all look the same, which i guess is the point, the aesthetic or whatever.

Lucky me... I lost my interest in Ck a long time ago...at this point, we should assume its cast always is weak and underwhelming. Karlies tonis, is just the past....pitifully. I loved to see Bette there, though.

The Wall Street Journal has two articles in today's paper about S/S 13 NYFW casting that I think tFS might find interesting. Unfortunately they're not available for free on their website, but if you have a chance to find today's paper, it's a cool read.

I don't think this season New York were that bad. We have seen Naomi Campbell, Carolyn Murphy (2 times), Isabeli Fontana (2 times), Karolina Kurkova, Erin O'Connor (2 times), Hilary Rhoda (4 times), Coco Rocha, Erin Wasson, Liberty Ross and Angela Lindvall. Last season besides Alexander Wang with Gisele, Natasha, Karolina, Frankie, Shalom and Carmen we had nothing, best casts ever probably but in the other shows nothing. I think London and Milan in terms of icons will be a desert. Finger crossed for Paris fashion week ;-)

I thought it was just a rumor/urban legend about Meisel? But it's actually true?
