    She may not be the next household name but she will be a working model – I can see her on the runway, with that chiseled-marble face, hair pulled back in slick pony tail and brigh, hot-pink lips.

    Yasin, I’m sorry, I have to disagree!

    At 17 years old, this girl is far from “boring.” I declare,
    she is, indeed, the perfect canvas that every designer, make-up artist, and stylist requires.

    If you want to see boring simply turn on your TV.

    On the contrary, this girl is a undeniable rarity, and a treasure to adorn due to her unusual generic structure…

    Irish, German = diva = she’ll bloom into a star, just you wait and see.

  • annie
