    lovely model, I saw Sonic Youth in Champaign, IL among many other great bands there, good party college town…, however, rabbit fur belongs on rabbits and cows meat belongs on a cow…

    Very beautiful – She could do absolutely anything.
    There is something so inocente, gentle, secretive about her.
    Quality of established girls like edita, anna etc.
    And sweet personality.

    why 21 (!!!!!)? Is a model more than 20 without interest?

    @thegoldiegirl because now she is legal to drink in america

    @goldiegirl and @amy, isn’t it because 21 is pretty late to start modeling? i’m not saying she won’t be successful (Iekeliene also started modeling at 21) but usually girls start modeling around 15, no?

  8. MissNicole says:

    She’s hardly just started. As she stated she was with Elite in Chicago & probably just signed with Supreme.

    And on my own tangent, what would it matter if she had just started? 21 is not 65 & I am sooooo over the fashion industry setting this disgusting standard that if you’re in your 20’s, you’re over the hill. I know women in their 30’s who are more beautiful and youthful than many of the 20 somethings I know.

    Plus, please tell me how many 15 year olds are buying, say, Gucci, Prada, Alexander Wang? Who are these people marketing to?

    (walking around the drama llamas above) Love Whitney. Such a sweetheart. Couldn’t be a nicer girl and I’m pulling for her to make it big.

    Great look. She looks younger than 21, and reminds me of another former MOTW, Emily Wake.
    Well, I am happy for these girls who starts their career in an elder age,
    their minds are more matured and understands what is good and bad for them.

    Helloooo Maryna Linchuk!

    (what’s the thing with the exclamation marks behind her age? I thought agencys usually want to “hide” the age, if the models are a bit older??? )

  13. Kaitlyn says:

    November 23rd, 2010 at 1:29 pm

    She is beautiful. I wish I looked exactly like her <3

  14. Matt says:

    November 23rd, 2010 at 2:45 pm

    Gorgeous and sexy. Her shape is perfect for fashion.
    I think this one can do it all. Needs a bit of grooming on her expressions.

  15. maddie says:

    November 23rd, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    I was just suggesting why the exclamation points could have been there…didn’t mean to start drama, guys.

    first of all, 21 is still very young, and about the marketing thing, I bet not many 21-year-olds are buying designer labels either. just saying. anyways, I think she is a great model (: the third to last pic is magic, reminding me a bit of natasha poly with the cheek bones. lovely girl (:

    haha weird..shes from where I’m from and she’s half norwegian like me…very pretty

  21. J. says:

    November 23rd, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Oh my gosh, she is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!!! Despite her being a little bit older than the typical new model, I’m certain she can have a great career if managed correctly. She has that ‘girl next door’ beauty from far away, but when looking closer, it’s obvious that she’s so much more than that. She looks like a cross between Maryna Linchuk and Elsa Sylvan, but with a more conventional beauty. Good luck!

    Gorgeous eyes!So special!

  26. E says:

    November 24th, 2010 at 5:43 pm

    I’m guessing the models fill out the forms themselves and, considering she’s an American, the exclamation points are most likely there because she’s recently 21 and excited about it.

    She’s beautiful, but not my usual cup of tea.

  27. Charlie says:

    One in a million x

  28. Lola says:

  38. MarthaAurelia says:

    January 29th, 2011 at 6:48 am

    I don’t understand why someone like her with her looks should NOT become a model just because of the age? I mean She’s not in her 30’! And sinally, she’s a mature girl, not some 14-15y. old.

  39. Felpestrada says:

    February 7th, 2011 at 11:12 pm
