On the evidence of the show packages we’ve received, it seems that recent discussions on racial diversity in modeling have had some impact on the model boards. We wouldn’t call it a sea change—blondes and Eastern Europeans proliferate—but it’s heartening to see women of color, like Korea’s Seung-Hyun Kang, winner of Ford’s Supermodel of the World contest, represented. Another new face that caught our eye is that of Austria Ulloa, who, despite her name, is not from that small Alpine country but the Dominican Republic. Ullola, likes to hang out at the movie theater when she’s not playing volleyball or listening to music. Her favorite city? Paris, of course.
