  5. There’s quite a story behind 21-year-old transgender model Valentijn de Hingh. Discovered as an eight-year-old boy by Dutch filmmaker Hetty Niesch, de Hingh was filmed from then until seventeen in what was originally part of a small piece on transgender youth but which became a longer (nine year!) documentary when the director decided to focus solely on her growth and development. The film debuted on Dutch television in 2007. De Hingh, who had gender reassignment surgery just before the release, was “very happy” with its success and how well it portrayed the trials and decisions that transgender youth face.

    One day, her angular features and willowy frame earned the attention of a modeling scout while she was shopping in Amsterdam and she soon made her runway debut in the Spring 2008 shows, walking for Maison Martin Margiela and Comme des Garçons. However, when she shot up from her then-height of 5’9″ to 6’1″, agencies deemed her too tall for runway and the bookings stopped. She instead enrolled in the University of Amsterdam to study literature science, hoping to pursue a career in fashion journalism.

  8. “I do sincerely hope that American Vogue will continue to use Asian models, and that this is not some ‘flash in the pan trend” comments JP on Models.com. “After all, American Vogue has never featured an Asian model on its cover, and I can’t remember the last time I saw a single Asian girl story in the magazine.”
…Not everybody has been ungenerous about the feature however, with many conceding that any progress is progress. “Wow, this is AMAZING! Finally Vogue is featuring Asian models!” comments one happy Models.com reader. What remains to be seen is whether Vogue will continue the positive progress in forthcoming issues. With Asian models becoming so commonplace in the industry as a whole, and with a whole new generation breaking through at the most recent collections, hopefully that cover won’t be far off.

  9. They were the sweetest, dirtiest talking, weirdest, comic-book-loving, Internet nerding, most breathtakingly cynical, tallest, hard-drinkingest, Proust-readingest, silliest, one-day-I’m-going-to-fuck-all-this-and-be-a-lawyerest, funniest, toughest crowd I’d ever run with.

  10. I often reflected on the fact that studies show that women, after looking at fashion magazines — full of pictures of girls very much like me, sometimes even pictures of me — feel bad about themselves. I also often wondered why it is, given this fact, that we buy the magazines again next month.

“BRAZILIAN models were hot a few years ago. Then there was the Russian invasion. Who’s next? Indian beauties. Besides Padma Lakshmi and Ujwalla Raut, there’s Lakshmi Menon, who just snagged the Givenchy and Hermes campaigns. Menon also posed for Mario Testino in Paris Vogue. “There’s a new girl, though, who might be the country’s next big thing,” Style.com reports. Kangana Dutta , recently signed by IMG, was shot for Harper’s Bazaar by Oliviero Toscani. “Indian women stand out, from the color of their skin to their features,” Dutta says. “Without us, fashion isn’t complete.”
-New York Post
My girlfriend Emily sent this to me. Talk about a confidence booster! I love that Indian women are being recognized for their beauty. But, that’s not the only thing to focus on; most Indian women I know are equally, if not more so, gifted with intelligence. About a year and a half ago, I saw one of my beautiful Indian girlfriends give a speech at Wharton’s MBA graduation ceremony in front of thousands of people. And get this- she spoke right after Lakshmi Mittal. To me, the most beautiful Indian women are like her: strong, well educated, and most importantly hardworking. With that, I still can’t help being amazed that every South Asian event this year has had better looking attendees than a model party. YAY- for the Indians, now if only we can get people to recognize us for our CRAZY dance moves (bhangra, anyone?).
