How do you feel about Layla saying in her AsNTM exit interview that modeling isn't something she has a passion for?

I'm surprised. It certainly didnt show thru her work; she has always been extremely professional and hardworking in jobs.

I think 1.68 is a reasonable height requirement! i mean in europe, models are way taller than that! + many girls who havent even reached the teen stage are already 1.65m!

Yeah

What do you think about someone with a very Korean-esque look, with airy bangs and straight brows and all? Would you consider signing someone like that?

Hi Bonita, I'm still not sure how u measure the hips because when I measure around the fattest part of my butt cheek is 35 inches without jeans and with jeans it's slightly above 36 inches. Is that not fitting the requirement?

You're fine. Come for OC

why would u accept ppl who come back twice for OC? u mentioned some of ur models were accepted in second OC?

During OC I do ask some applicants to work on certain aspects and come see me the next casting, and if they really do turn up the next round with changes, I'll usually sign them right away because it shows that they are taking in constructive feedbacks seriously and have been putting effort to make it work. I like that kind of attitude.

tbh i totally understand why u need to increase the height requirement. it'll also make your team of models more professional as in understand that on global platforms it is tougher for asian models and 175 and above is preferred. i am personally 174 so see u there!

See ya!

hi bonita, measurement of the hips is at the widest part right? and of the waist the narrowest?

Hips - put the tape around your butt cheek.
Waist - put the tape at the smallest part between your rib cage and where your jeans sits.
