    Congrats to the winners! I can’t help but notice that most of the girls that win elite model competition always have their hair shaved off! Call me fussy but I think this is reinforcing stereotypes for black women that in order to be the ideal model you have to be clean shaven!

    I would love to see models winning with whatever hair type they’ve got, natural or relaxed…just my two cents!

    • Aisha

      October 2, 2012 at 4:18 pm

      I agree with perplexed . . Always shaven hair!
      I am a model scout with premier UK and a black girl with shaven hair doesn’t necessarily mean she,s a model potential . For e.g Naomi , tyra all had long hair extension. Nothing wrong with shaven hair but I ,ve noticed that in Nigeria most of the models have shaven hair.

      The 2009 winner and 2011 winner had hair.

      Honestly, most times when models are clean shaven, they have a more striking look and their facial features are more pronounced… if I could pull it off, I would totally be rocking an almost clean shaven look myself, but no one needs to see the contours of my head! #coversface.

    The two of them have a highly unusual looks; and that girls killer thighs. i think they’ll do very well as models. However, on a personal note, whats wrong with these modelling agencies sef? Where are all the curvy & deliciously looking ladies? As much as i see slim and skinny models on the run way, whats not to ilke about some flesh? When would we all be realistic?
