Will Australia ever have another Miranda Kerr or Gemma Ward, well nobody knows, but if we ever do it would be out of this dozen of girls. 2005 saw an invasion of Australians on the modelling circuit. Alexander Agoston, Alyssa Sutherland, Elyse Taylor, Miranda Kerr, Pania Rose, Nicole Trunfio, Gemma Ward, Jessica Gomes, Shanay Hall and Talluah Morton were all doing wonderful things. I would not consider this group very strong, but their was a lot of talent there. It is now 2011, and we have a new breed of models. I am going to review the potential of each of the 12 girls listed in order to help bring a better understanding of who is our next 'Supermodel'
Bambi Northwood-Blyth: She is short, but has a powerful look. In her first season she booked major runway shows for Chanel and Balenciaga. I don't think she will go very far unfortunately, even though she is one of my favourites.
Abbey-Lee Kershaw: There is nothing to say about this girl, she is a true star
Jessica Hart: Last season she proved that she is more then a sports illustrated girl by doing numerous shows for London fashion week. She has worked for the Victorias Secret catalogue, but the only way she will become a top model is by attempting to dominate the swimwear and lingerie field
Stephanie Cherry: I am not a fan of her, she looks like a normal girl. She is pretty, but thats it
Shanina Shaik: this Make Me A Supermodel Alumni has proved she can work in the harsh US Market. She has booked big commercial work with iconic American brands such as Macys, Ann Taylor, and Aeropostale. I can see her dominating the worlds commercial market, but not high fashion, she looks too exotic. I would not be surprised If she worked for Victorias Secret sometime in the future. Its unbelievable to think that she is only 19
Lauren Brown: She has proved that she can book runway work, but she struggles to book campaigns. I do not think she can become a supermodel
Samantha Harris: I think she could be a very good commercial top model. I can't see her on the runways of Paris, Milan and New York, but I can see her on the Victorias Secret Runway. She is taking too long to go international, soon the buzz in which surrounds her is going to fade
Meg Lindsay: I see a lot of potential in her. I think it is time she trys the international circuit. She is signed with NEXT, I really hope they can use her well. Watch out, soon this girl is going to be everywhere
Julia Nobis: She has proved herself as a fantastic runway model, now I want her to embrace her commercial side
Juliana Forge: I can see her having a similar career to Miranda Kerr. Juliana has already attended castings for Victorias Secret, so she has caught their eye.
Annaleise Smith: She has had an impressive debut season, I just want her to try book campaigns and catalogue work so she can prove that she is not only a runway model
Codie Young: She is the industries next couture runway star
