    Nice edit but these models are ugly, I've never thought that Alek Wek is beautiful, but for some reason the fashion world has always been gaga over her

    god, gorgeous girls!
    I wish I'd get to see some of them in more important editorials

    I feel that lately what I'm seeing is getting quite "stuck", always the same kind of beauty, not so interesting styling, and overphotoshoped…

    where is the challenge?

    Been too long since I've seen Oluchi anywhere. Wish she got more work.
