    I wish she was just that little bit taller, then I think she could cover more markets successfully.

    @ aaaa – of course the images are photoshopped, they’re professional photographs! The last 4 are polaroids!

    Gorgeous girl, looks like a Victoria’s Secret Angel

    beautiful and nice, but she isn’t a very charismatic beauty, is not the bomb.

    Since when is 5’9.5 not in the clearing? That’s a perfect height for a model. Anywhere between 5’8-5’11 is perfect in my opinion. She has great potential! But I don’t see her in the high fashion market, maybe more swim/commercial.

    she is not short. 5’9.5″ is not short. and you can see it in her proportions. her legs aren’t karlie kloss long. but she has long proportions–a long neck etc.
