    I’m surprised. When I have seen her snaps I wasn’t 100% sure, but when I saw the video my opinion changed. Heidi is great. And it’s also interesting to know her ethic, what a great mix. Can’t wait for more.

    Hahahaa I love how she mentioned Darlinka Hooverova as her “thinspiration”!! Everyone loves a funny model. It doesn’t hurt that she has a great look, also.

    She has sex appeal that most models don’t have.

    She IS young the rest of the industry are children.

    MODELS SHOULD BE ADULTS, NOT CHILDREN! IF YOU SERIOUSLY ARE A WOMAN AND WANT TO LOOK LIKE THE CHILDREN IN MOST ADS YOU HAVE SOME MENTAL ISSUES! NOTHING AGAINST THE CHILDREN, IT DOESN’T MAKE THEM LESS BEAUTIFUL, IT STILL DOESN’T MAKE THEM ADULTS THOUGH. LET THE CHILDREN BE CHILDREN AND LET THE ADULTS BE ADULTS. IF WE DON’T GIVE CHILDREN THE TIME TO BLOSSOM WIHT THE “TIME IS NOW” MENTALITY, THEN WHY SHOULD THEY WAIT TO DO OTHER ADULT THINGS……I’M SPEAKING SPECIFICALLY IN THE MODELING WORLD..
