    what model do you admire? just like the other topic not mainly because of their looks but because of their process of success.

    i realize that a lot of models are just discovered by i admire natalia vodianova above them all. i like how she was working at a fruit market to support her family and then became one of the biggest model in the country.

    and then married an aristocrat in case she should become unpopular. HA

    Alek Wek.

    I admire her because her story is, details aside, the same story that so many people have except they'll never be famous--therefore never have the opportunity to have a voice--and be in a thread like this.

    Here's an interview with her to learn all about this amazing person.

    I think models that come from impoverished nations can be admired for overcoming difficulties and rising to the top. This includes, but is not limited to, Natalia V, Natasha Vojnovic, Alek Wek, and Yasmin Warsame.

    However, when I think of admiring someone I think of people who genuinely do good for a great number of people: philanthropists, nurses, doctors, etc. And I don't we can laud models in this same way. It seems a little silly.

    ok we'll not say admire...

    we'll just say what model you find interesting, other than how they look.

    They may not be the most talented, but they're still human and have facets to admire like everyone else... :flower:

    Alek Wek - because she has overcome huge obstacles to be one of the most successful models in the world, and she seems like a sweet person :flower:

    Caitriona Balfe - because she seems like a grounded and cool person and was discovered doing volunteer work in Dublin for people with multiple sclerosis, which is a great thing to do :)

    Angela Lindvall - because she has a lovely website geared at encourging people to really communicate with each other, find out what each other are thinking - that's something that the world has seemed to lose touch of, and I think it's wonderful that she would take the time to address the issue
    Also, she's done spreads to encourage awareness about heart disease among women - and I find that very admirable :flower:

    Christy Turlington!

    She is exotically beautiful and devotes her time to cancer related charities and designing yoga apparel.
