Can someone clarify what the sources were for the models on the ?? list. Any corrections? Thanks.
Dioni Tabbers -> I also want to know this!!!???????? so idk why she was confirmed...I really hope it's true, though. it would be the most exciting newcomer this year
Elsa Hosk -> confirmed by herself via twitter
Jessica Hart -> according to an interviewand she said via twitter she was getting ready for vsfs
Lais Ribeiro -> confirmed by herself via twitter
Shanina Shaik -> confirmed by herself via twitter (she retwitters about vsfs several times)
Regarding Dioni, she seems as confused about her linkage with VSFS as we are. She is in Miami right now and this is what she said on twitter
"Did i miss something? #VSFS"
She's so perfect for VS. If she showed up, people would go wild over her.
Regarding VS and payment--
It depends on what type of stuff the model is going to be doing in the catalog like lingerie, clothes, PJs, swim
But VS "tests" girls before they actually move forward and book them for the catalog and they pay for the tests. If I recall correctly, they pay 4000 for the test and then it goes up from there depending on what you're booked for...
just watched the chanel iman video posted earlier and her walk is actually quite awesome especially at Dsq. Am sure shes going to be at the show considering that shes currently the most cross over black model
African fashion made global
VS may have had a chance had one of their higher ups not bad mouthed Kate Upton earlier this year. IIRC Kate actually said that she was invited to the VSFS casting and turned it down because she was shooting SI. I don't necessarily think that VS is chomping at the bit to have Kate Upton walk the VSFS, but that bridge was needlessly burned IMO and the brand looked mean and narrow-minded in doing so. I can see Kate doing print work for them down the road if only because VS pays well.
Well said, I still find it hard to believe that the women said that, so unbelievably unprofessional, Iím guessing she wasn't expecting Kate to reach the level of success and fame she has in such a short amount time.
...Also i think Candice tweeted a picture of herself from a fitting of one of her outfits, she had on a 'bow' wing. looked cute....
