ford supermodel of the world insanity

Here are the winners of recent times (and of course I'm going to biasedly promote Charo Ronquillo):

2005 winner, Brazilian Camila Finn (who was 13 when she won), has done campaigns for Benetton and Emporio Armani. You know you're still going strong when you're doing shows like Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs, and Narciso Rodriguez. No news from first runner-up Otilia Aionesei from Romania. Second runner-up, Canadian Ingrid Schram, left Ford and switched over to Elite. She did a few SS07 shows like Ann Demeulemeester and Badgley Mischka.

Did you know? Eva Helene Skarvig (IMG) started out as Denmark's contestant in 2005. She's walked for MaxMara, Missoni, and Proenza Schouler in the SS07 shows.

Belarusian Katsia Damankova, 2006's winner, walked for Josh Goot and Dragana Ognjenovic this past season. I haven't seen much of first runner-up Bojana Reljic. I know second runner-up Charo Ronquillo from the Philippines (woot!) did Lacoste, Nanette Lepore, and Project Runway for Chloe Dao. Recently, she did Spanish Vogue and Teen Vogue.

Oh and look at this.

Is there something going on between Brad Kroenig and Charo?

Brad and Charo last year at Supermodel of the World.

Brad and Charo this year.

I have a future in rag mag writing. Ew, just kidding.

Additional runners-up of 2006 include American Chanel Iman who channeled and manned her way through show after show after city after city. No doubt about that. Dutch runner-up Rosanne Doosje might've been a sign of the times, a predictor of the following year. She's such a beautiful girl but has such a gawd-awful walk.

This is the second year that Ford picked five winners. Hmmmmmm, I wonder why. I wouldn't have picked Dutch contestant Sanne Nijhof as the winner but hey, congratulations to her! Oh and runners up from Belarus, Denmark, Canada, and Brazil. Model cultivating fields!

Michelle from the Philippines didn't do too well, but at least Pinoys have Charo to cheer on!
