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

  • aaaa

    Photoshopped! last 4 images are her real real skin, not those lighter ones! but great edited

  • wow really like her “martha graham” images.

  • troy

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

    She looks so much like Charlize Theron in the last shots with the black tank top. Gorgeous girl.

  • kitkat

    she’s getting the same start as candice swanepoel and you know what happened to her..

    love it

  • Renee

    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.

  • macaroon

    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.

  • Sam

    So beautiful. She is a money maker!
