Nope, C Kass wasn't the star at Madrid FW - Raica was...appearing in anything from "you won't see that in NYC" lingerie to 60s Ipanema girl / Jackie O fashions...Ronaldo, who is still scoring lots of goals for Real Madrid, was of course there, since Raica is now his fiancee - after all, Ronaldo's mom approves...
In the small pic, the 40 Grauss boss with Raica and Ana Bia...




Some semi-knowledgable high fashion characters are once again floating the idea of Daria W being the "new Romy Schneider"...but there may be a slight problem with this approach:
German speakers (and many others) remember Romy as a teenager, playing Empress Sissi - note Romy's popular teen image, as seen in these rare postcards...



If you think that teen Romy looked more like ...Natalia Vodianova, you are right - it's not just wise-ass FV, German Elle mentioned the resemblance when they featured Natalia, a year or so before high fashion discovered her...
Daria looks more like a 30 or 35 year old Romy, which is OK if you are trying to sell products to 35+ year olds, but I doubt that was the intention...
Romy appeared in dozens of forgettable movies in later years, but it is the Sissi image that still remains dominant
And don't forget that Z Macasova had her 15 min of fame coz someone thought she "resembled" 45 yo Carine Roitfeld (who UK papers claimed could pass as Iggy Pop's sister - some sinister folks claimed Iggy's brother would be more appropriate...)

As for what the avid Lady Bunny fans saw in Natalia when she arrived in NYC - I would rather not think about it...
Excellent Natalia V pic from French Marie Claire, when she was still slightly chubby...
