I remember the season Coco walked.. Anna Mariya Opened as yourbestfriend said.. there were TONS of new girls that season.. same with last season.. just a sea of new faces.

I think certain season are more select that others.. the season Suvi opened was very selective I think.. very few new faces.

^yeah it was the same girls over and over again, very small casting, just Sasha, Alana, Bette and Suvi.

I think major agencies own a certain percentage of their shows, so a set number of girls from a certain agency have to walk for them, so maybe IMG and Women own the biggest shares. Maybe it isn't that much of a romantic industry as well think it is, it's probably a lot to do with numbers and business, maybe the girls who will work for the pay that is optimum for the agency, booker and Prada itself is the girl who gets to walk.

Not to mention some girls probably do it as a favour, or for free because it's such a priviledge.

for me the F/W 08 campaign will be totally a surprise, even if it's Sasha, I'll be surprised, I don't think Snejana will get a campaign, neither Catherine. Miuccia said that the sexy is back, so I'm betting on a model that is not too alien ... another bet of mine is Natalia, as she opened and closed the show!

Natalia would be my bet too. She is a VERY sexy girl. Then again, Sasha can be a sex kitten too....

I dunno but I have never thought of as Sasha as sexy. I just don't get that 'appeal' of her. I don't even think she's that versatile personally.

Very interesting thread Carmen. Enjoyed reading it. :p

i don't think we'll ever understand the method to russell's/miuccia's madness. they're loyal to some girls, they turn their backs on others. that's how it usually goes in the fashion business.

I've heard Prada pays a few thousand.

Also, the casting relationship is also depedant on Russel Marsh's relationship with different agents at the agencies. If they're relationship is better, he is probably more likely to take on a friend's girl over a girl at another agency.

Can we think of some big models who have never walked Prada or Miu Miu?
The ones that come to mind are:

1)Valentina
2)Inguna
3)Doutzen
4)Iselin? <--- I'm not sure if she has or not.
5)Anja Rubik
6)Maria Carla??

Anymore?

Liya, Trentini, Hana (I believe), Agyness, Hilary

And then you had other big girls who only walked Prada once like Coco, Lily D, Irina L, etc.

Is the Trentini sotry true? That she was going to walk Prada and one season she was cast and backstage Miuccia tapped her on the shoulder and said you're too ugly please go home? What a cruel thing to do. I mean if you can cast Vlada and Stam who look exacty like her then why not Trentini?

Oh and I don't think Heather Marks has never walked for Prada.
Niether have
Du Juan,
Chanel Iman,
Magdalena (not sure if she has walked for Miu Miu though),
Irina L.
Maryna Linchuk
Georgia Frost
Rachel Clark
Behati Prinsloo? <---Not sure about her
Masha N?
Kinee D
Mariya Markina??
Dunno about Lisa cant

Please correct me If I'm worng. I think Siri's case is odd, she may become one of thosee girls who only walked once, I wonder why she wasn't there this season.

Irina L walked FW06, and I know Behati walked for Prada. I think she was on an exclusive? Neither has Flavia, Ai, Alek (basically any black/asian model not named Naomi, Hye or Jourdan). I don't think Tiiu has either.

Shannan Click walked only S/S 05. (She was one of S/S05 campaign models)
and Behati walked only S/S 06.
Julia Stegner walked only S/S04.
