i'm quietly fascinated by the beauty of the models here in NZ for realzies - they're like some very strange looking, very ethereal young women with poignant features and these intense-looking doe-eyes. its the opposite end of the spectrum from paris, london, milan etc where the eastern european, anaemic-looking gals look emaciated etc. these girls look healthy in a good way. they're still thin and realistically sample-size and all but they've got these very left-of-centre looks that are rather hypnotic in their own way. below, some beauties from yesterday afternoon's altogether impressive annah stretton show.
