Wilhelmina must be saber rattling, which may be smart on their part so that Next will not go after any of their bigger fish, because of the models in question, none are fashion models and it seems like only one could be considered a commercial model. Presumably the models in question are money makers but probably doing non-visible stuff like showroom work.
Yeah it may be sleazy for Next to poach, but if I were a non-top model and Next was eyeballing me, I would hightail it over there because they get their girls work, I am not sure if Karlie would have gotten to the level that she is if she stayed at Elite. Yeah, Coco did a lot but I don't know if I would trust that they could replicate her success.
Just curious why did the mother agencies stop working with them?
