    Abelard, did she mean petite as in a subset of the industry or petite as in "she's small?" Kate Moss was specifically picked by Calvin Klein because he thought it was time for a change and it's one of the most genius moves the man has ever made.

    Um...I'm sorry...I didn't know Kate Moss was 5'4" and under.

    She's not, she's just short of 5'7". She was discovered at 14 but exploded when she did the Obession ads. At that time everyone else was 5'9" or taller and too supermodely.

    I don't know what Tyra meant by "petite," but she used that term and she used Kate Moss as an example. (Bad Tyra didn't define her terms.) I knew that Kate Moss had been "discovered" when she was very young. I think Tyra may have used Moss as an example because Regis & Kelly had actually heard of her. Some people say that Kate Moss is really only 5'6". ;-) In the modeling world, under 5'8" is petite, I guess. No, really, I don't know that; but Tyra used the word petite.

    How dare Tyra not be specific when she knows we're so attentive to detail?

    I looked up "petite modeling" and found that it is an industry sector but not very significant. The idea mirrors the plus-size side in that they use statistics to point out the 80% of American women are under 5'6" so it stands to reason using models of average height will get to that market. It's limited to catalog and there's no runway/high fashion editorial prospects really.

    I'm thinking Tyra meant smaller and wasn't talking about the peitite industry. Kate Moss shows 1" or 2" doesn't really make a difference for Kate Moss because, well, she's Kate Moss. Circular reasonsing, I'll admit, but it was about having the right look at the right place at the right time.

    Things I want to see next season

    I bet next season they will have a borderline porn star on there, an uninhibited girl roaming about sleeping her way to the top.

    How about some scandal, like a girl that may have been planted there by an agency.

    Perhaps a spin around Milan with Giorgio Armani.

    A trunk show perhaps even a small runway show infront of the public.

    I think there may be a judge that is well known, a Vivienne Westwood, or a Fabien Baron, how about Matthew Rolston (Sorry M, I know you would never stoop so low).
