i literally CANNOT understand why Arlenis wouldn't be cast. they've been using her fairly consistently all year in the catalogues - there's even been talk of her possibly signing an "Angel" contract. and she looks amazing AND went to the castings!!! someone please explain this to me!

This is one of the best castings VS has ever had. confused about no arlenis but this year is very diverse. Liu wen really broke barriers and gave more asian girls a shot. Super exciteddd!
I wish they would look into some of the other models with asian backgrounds who could give the white models with sexy, athletic bodies a run for their money. Like Hana Mayeda, Aline Nakashima and Jarah Mariano. It just kills me when I see negative generalizations about asians and "asian bodies" on blogs like ONTD. The current girls don't really fight against it as I see people using pictures from last years show to reinforce some horrible stereotypes.
I simply cannot wrap my head around why someone like Jac Jab and Dorothea would get chosen over the likes of Maryna, Arlenis, Bianca Balti, Emiliy Didonto, Magda, Eniko, and Cintia ughh
There are so few spots, so EVERY girl truly counts. There aren't any spots to waste. Hilary is by far the superstar new face this year though! I can't remember the last time a huge, established HF top model walked their show for the first time. It would be like Daria W walking the show. Who knows, maybe Hilary's time with VS will blossom into something bigger...
Hilary would be a great Angel
they've been pushing Pink because it saved the brand so it's a no brainer, but I think they're starting to alienate their non-Pink consumer and that's where someone like Hilary comes in.
