The Prada campaigns sure have come a long way considering Shannan Click's were just her holding a shoe.

Irina L walked for Prada in S/S 06 & F/W 06

I read in a previous thread that Hana never walked for Prada, but she has walked for Miu Miu once

For me, the models that were the perfect faces for prada had already walked for it, models like Hana, Trentini, Hilary, Flavia etc. aren't models that I would like to see walking for Prada ...

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.
As far as Miuccia telling her to go home because she was too ugly, I've no doubt that's a complete exaggeration. Miuccia Prada does not speak to the girls. She speaks in Italian and to her employees and casting director. She tells the casting director if she likes a girl or not and leaves it to him to sort it out. The casting director does not say "sorry you're canceled because you're too ugly" he says "she didn't think your look fit with the others" or "your look isn't right for this season" and then there's also "she's dropping your outfit from the show" (4 or 5 outfits are dropped last minute and the girls with them every season)

Also with Siri I imagine that given Milan's interest in the anti-anorexia campaigns and publicity (they have rather moving billboards all over the city of a naked skeletal woman posing, captioned "No Anorexia") it could be due to the particularly controversial reaction in the Milan industry to one of Siri's resent editorial images portraying her bare back. Many designers in Milan have gotten on the boat of discussing their desire to not cast for such an image.

Iselin did walk for Prada/ S/S 2004 (Although, she wore a hat and it was hard to see her face under it) and S/S 2005 as well. I believe she walked for Miu Miu those seasons as well, but I could be wrong about that.

Pretty tough to get dropped from Prada at the last minute. Do the other casting directors sort of know about it, so it doesn't hurt a model's rep?

Like, at least she was considered...

Actually Iselin started her career as with a Calvin exclusive and a Prada exclusive.

Wow, I thought Gemma Ward had opened Prada before but it turns out she hasn't opened or closed. Interesting, because I read an article about how they flew Gemma to Milan to meet Miuccia and her first reaction was "bella" (beautiful). I figured she would get an opening/closing slot at least.

I, for one, am extremely surprised by the casting of Lindvall in this show. She hasn't walked for Prada for almost a decade (since Fall 2000), when she was replaced in the ongoing campaigns. For years she did nothing that had to do with Prada or Muiccia. And now she's sort of become the older, sexy model in a sea of new girls, walking mainly for Lagerfeld, Galliano and the such. Why cast her now? I love it because I love anything Angela, but it is totally surprising.

^me either, I'm more shocked by Catherine McNeil! I guess she is the real deal and walking Prada cements it.

Although about Catherine, now that she's walked Prada, and she's walked Anna Sui which Steven Meisel casts, do you think he'll end his fued with her and actually use her for photographic work? That would be amazing.
