    she's way too pretty and good to be modelling for baby phat :sick:

    Are there even any arabic/middle eastern models out there? I guess you can consider that asian since it is in asia :)

    edit: is middle east its own continent? things have changed since grade 2...

    Yeah I have to agree... Je deteste Baby Phat... :sick: :sick:

    And I don't know if there are any arabic models... I wanna know the same thing.
    The ARAB world is the middle east + northern Africa (where I'm from!!! La Tunisie to be specific! ps. I hate it when people mistake us to be middle eastern).. But the MIDDLE EAST itself is most of the panhandle of southwestern Asia...

    The Middle East is part of Asia. What about Kimorea Lee Simmons? She use to be a model.

    Actually if you take a stroll down Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei, Tokyo, or Seoul (and probably a multitude of other Asian cities. I haven't been to South Asia yet so someone'll have to tell me about that), you'll see quite a number of tall girls. Okay, maybe not as much as if you were in, say, Copenhagen or Amsterdam, but still a considerable amount. I think the stereotype that Asian girls are small generated in the 80s when true, the asians people see were pretty petite. But now a lot of asian girls are tall. My sister, for one, is 5'9" (while I'm only 5'7", how unfair)

    Also, my discovery is that notion of 'short' Asian girls is more apparent in countries in Southeast Asia, like the Philippines, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, etc. than in northeastern asian countries (Japan, China, Korea, etc). But that's just my observation. I'm sure there are exceptions. [/b][/quote]
    Southeast Asian girls are typically short. I'm Vietnamese, and about 5'3. When I compare my height to other Vietnamese girls, I tend to be taller.

    The Japanese are typically short, but have been getting taller over the years. I believe it has to do with a change in diet. The staple was fish and rice. Though it still is, there is more variety. In the more recent generations, people have been getting noticeably taller.

    I'm not trying to be Ms. Politically Correct, but folks, Asians are not "Oriental. Reserve that term for rugs and other decor, style, etc. :flower:

    I love Ling and Ai! But I'm not so keen on some of the newer ones :blink: They look a bit too sullen. China's a huge country, there are a wide variety of heights and physical appearances. The whole myth about Chinese being short probably comes from that Southern Chinese, being near the water were more likely to migrate (Guangzhou, Hong Kong,etc) and this is apparent in Southern Chinese food being well known. Girls from other parts of China are known to be a lot taller - some of them are easily 6 foot +. And anyway, I'm 5'9" and Chinese :D

    I do not think devon is pretty at all :sick: and i think her facial features and blah.....though i do find them interesting but in a strange way but that makes them unique so i like unique....... I really dont' think she is pretty BUT BECAUSE she has a doll shape face and has these VERY intersting FEATURES.....I see that is how she is a model bc of her uniqueness and stuff.....otherwise for looks wise NO NO NO NO NO
