^ Yeah,Click to see Spoiler:I was thinking that I recalled several mentions of the others being with Next and only one reference to Valeria. (I don't recall any references to Angelika, though. But maybe I'm blocking them out!). Which made me wonder (about Valeria). I did have this feeling they didn't sign Valeria but then there was that one reference to her being with Next. So I was all confused. And still am! As to why they wouldn't sign her.... I don't know. She's lovely. They've complained numerous times about Beatrice and they signed her!
As for the show tonight:
Good scenes at the fashion shows. I was surprised that Nicole Miller took the time to walk with Michelle down the runway. I would have thought she was too busy (and it's not like they were doing a general run through for all the models). I have a feeling that Nicole Miller and the producers of A Model Life came to an agreement that she would get exposure on the show as long as she picked one of the models to be in her show. And I guess that model was Michelle. There was probably a similar quid pro quo for the Chris Habana show (I did notice on his website that he gives a shout out to Karl, the makeup guy, so there's that connection as well). Jenni Kayne was probably also interested in the extra publicity as it was her first showing in New York.
Angelika, of course, knew everything about runway walking already. Because she is a pro and Valeria is not. That said, Angelika did walk well. Valeria was a bit sideways and I think the fact that her collar was also pulled sideways emphasized it even more. Michelle was ok, a bit stiff. Abi didn't actually have to walk so I can't rate her.
