An End To New Young Pretty Things On Our Catwalk?
Now catwalk rules state you must be 16 and over to walk a catwalk. Most models are, however, a large majority are also 15, some even 14.
Anna Mariya Urazhevskaya, a new model to emerge is just 15, yet the designers already love her. Tanya Dziahileva, 15, a young golden haired beauty has been a catwalk favourite for a while. Not forgetting Chanel Iman, the 14 year old dark skined model of the moment. Though models spend a lot of time doing editorial and other shoots the catwalk propels them even further.
Whilst I do think you can't have fifty 13 year old waltzing up and down the catwalk, (unless that's the designer's type of thing) I do think it's going to be a shame to see such talent being restricted.
Though the girls only have a year or so to wait what I wonder is will the designers ever abide by this rule?
You can take the girl off the catwalk but from the catwalk off the girl. If she's got it in her....flaunt it. Don't let the talent shrivel up and die.
