    Oof it's happening. First they lost Meghan Roche to IMG and now a majority of their stars are switching to Elite NYC.

    Did Elite NY have that strong of a roster prior to all this switching around? I feel like Naki, Sijia, and Xie Chaoyu were probably their more busy models?

    Elite NYC's roster was actually fairly weak. Poaching Women doesn't solve their problem -- they don't have a strong network of sister agencies in Europe and Asia to feed their pipeline of new girls. Unless, they've done something to address that.

    Alicia, Giedre and Ophelie probably arent even the biggest names to switch! Wouldnt be surprised if Poly, Feifei Sun or MCB are going to Elite as well.

    ^ I believe MCB moved to IMG a few months back, so contractually she wouldn’t be able to switch. Natasha and Fei Fei would be HUGE switches.

    Alana Zimmer has since been another name mentioned in multiple articles regarding the Women & Elite fiasco.

    I did contact Alicia yesterday regarding the original TMZ article on the matter (and other articles which have followed) and while Giedre and Ophelie have switched, Alicia has said she has not switched to Elite, although she’s not with Supreme either.
    Anna Ewers: Women Direct Milan, signed to Marilyn Paris shortly after
    Behati Prinsloo: Supreme
    Alexina Graham: Ford
    Rebecca Longendyke: IMG
    Giedre Dukauskaite: NYMM, was with Women Milan
    Ophelie Guillermand: Marilyn Paris, signed to Marilyn NY shortly after
    Issa Lish: Women Direct

    Who is the guy who moved to Elite? A booker, the head booker, someone in management? Would he be in a position that all the top Women models would follow him? Something's been happening at Women for months even before he left. Some defections here and there that made me wonder what was happening. Ever since that talent agency bought The Society and Women, Women has been been undergoing a slow attrition. And its pipeline of new girls hasn't been as strong.

    The spoiler was for the first ever agencies the models were signed to before the Elite switch, sorry for any confusion. Rebecca at the very start of her career was with IMG, then switched to Women, and now is with Elite.

    Does the recent Women Agency exodus have anything to do with the Jeffrey Epstein scandal?

    Apparenly the directof of a French modeling agency is linked to Jeffrey Epstein. He denied but there is a case open. It is the (former?) director of Karin Model Agency
