Another "major fashion capital" show season is over - this was the season when the high fashion pros were allegedly going to "explore good taste" (tells you what kind of taste the so-called "A-List" normally represents - in case you haven't noticed yet).
On top of that, the industry giants, like Ivan Bart, claimed that "...addicts, aliens and other forlorn creatures of the catwalks will probably be pushed to the margins...to make way for a new breed of swan..."
Natalia Zavillova, from Slovakia, when I first saw her, five years ago - she obviously isn't quirky enough for high fashion success

Last time I checked, Karen Elson was still very much hip (guess which sort of "creature" she may be) and the various Bugs were very visible - although I am not sure what a high fashion "swan" is supposed to look like...but then again, if a ton of elegance ever falls on Bart's or Rowland's head, they still won't know what hit them.

The NYC biz "pros" talked about their current models having no "real identity and a memorable face", being "marginal and often unremarkable faces", who "don't inspire any kind of longing" - Bart reportedly "sniffed out" that there will be "a return to glamour", starting this season.

I guess the plan was postponed, and they just glamourized K Elson, Missy Rayder and others from the "ye olde faithful" NYC club, along with all sorts of real or fake redheads. (Btw this was obviously the season for the losers at Elite to do something with Natalia Zavillova - but then, they wouldn't be the losers that they are). The resurrection of Kristen McMenamy was probably the pinnacle of the "return to glamour", NYC-style.

Still doing post-mortem analysis, with FTV having more expanded show coverage than in recent seasons, but the fact is that when you check the names of the mods who "impressed" the usual suspects, it's business as usual.

Wow, Natalia Zavillova is gorgeous! It's sad that some frankly ugly and boring looking women (who even the model scouts say so!) are making it when beauties like her are being left behind, or have to do with just catalog jobs...
