  1. Janelle, can you find out what Jasmine uses for her skin? She is so impeccably radiant!!!!!!!
    I remember hearing a photographer saying once that she is the only model who never needed any retouching whatsoever.

  2. Jasmine is perfection!!! she needs campaigns and covers and a beauty contract asap!!!!
    @Janelle side note… i noticed Ajak Deng was slipping in the top 50. I’d like to point out that she scored the Kenzo s/s 2012 campaign along with Alek Wek and Nairobi Matos. I didn’t see the campaign in the database either… I know its a bit off topic but i have to look out for one of my fav models! :)
