And of course Julia Nobis takes the cake again, scientists everywhere are still struggling to find an explanation.....
Maybe I'm saying something stupid but is it perhaps possible that Julia is perhaps just a good catwalker? It seems countless of stylists/agents/designers still seem to think so after a couple of years. Something she's doing must be good.

Yeah, I don't get the Julia Nobis thing either. I mean, I can sort of, kind of, perhaps begin to come to understand the look, but her walk is really not great and she always sticks out in a lineup - in a bad way. I wonder if she's basically the new Freja. The sort of token androgynous girl that all the designers somehow cream over.
I'm also quite surprise by the lack fo 'stars' in Milan. Usually it's the glitzy city in terms of casting, but I'd say it was even lower key than NY.
It doesn't bother me as much to see Julia walk for so many shows but I just don't see her as that token androgynous girl. If anything, I think that belongs to Aymeline. The only thing Julia has covered is her personality. Ok, yeah we get it, she sticks to her tomboy roots and she probably has great work ethics too but as far as her impact on the runway and even in print, she doesn't exactly ooze sexuality from every pore or have enough raw power to standout. I also think Maria Bradley is slowly but surely giving a run for her money with the whole androgyny deal. She's going through a solid season as well and her signature moody, boyish walk is certainly more appealing than Julia's neutral, whatever-let's-just-get-this-over-with walk imo.
i wasn't sure about julia at first but i really do understand why she gets all these shows. :-) she may not be everyones type but she definitely looks good in all the clothes and i think she wears make-up pretty well. i think personality is probably a big thing too, she seems happy and to be enjoying herself all the time, designers must love her for that.
I don't think she looks good on the catwalk. I'm biased because I don't like her look in general but she just looks awkward and lazy when walking. Guess I gotta have to deal with that since she's like booking everything ( ).
I think this season is much better than last season in terms of casting so far. We have a better mix of blondes & brunettes, and imo the newcomers are better (Marikka Juhler, Marine Deleeuw, Tsheca White). The star power has also developed more this time around (Joan, Karlie, Daria, Karmen & Aymeline). I see all these girls as stars now. It was a hard adjustment going from Natasha, Anja, Freja & Sasha as the main stars of shows, to this newer generation of top models. Now that I'm used to it, I like it.
