    I am genuinely scared. Sometimes i don’t understand how people get to be “models”. I suspect some are just generically beautiful and some are chosen because they have an oddly unique aesthetic, which I usually appreciate more, but not in this case.

    Proves my theory that most models aren’t more attractive than the average woman, simply that they look different.

    And that they have bigger heads.

    When you see these girls on the street the last thing that comes to your mind is “average” If they were average they wouldn’t stick out so much from all the average looking people around them.

    I have to say Lily Cole on the runway scares me too. But on this picture she actually looks very soft and pretty to me! :)

    agree with a. passerby.
    Lily scares me. There are models whose popularity i don’t understand–think MariaCarla Boscone, Lisa Cant, etc. But Lily genuinely freaks me out…it’s as though she’s an evil doll come to life.

    Her and Kate Moss look like aliens. What the Brits lack in beauty they truly make up in weirdness…

    I think that it must be a British thing then. Here in England, Lily Cole is adored and she is huge. This pre-raphaelite thing is really popular. And the whole point of models surely is the fact that they look different? Lily isn’t conventionally beautiful, but that what makes her even more stunning. And her colouring should be seen more on the catwalk.

    lily is lovely and so different from the standard models with chiselled features. She’s soft and feminine, even her arms and hands are beautifully formed. Yet she has strehgth of character that shines through and lifts her to a different level. Maybe this is why some people get scared, its the femininity and strength combination which maybe creates jealousy too.
    and she has a bright mind, what a star

    I don’t think anyone with an intelligent opinion can say that the British lack in the beauty department – i think ‘anonymous’ forgot about:

    Lily Donaldson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Naomi Campbell, Agyness Deyn, Jourdan Dunn, Georgia May Jagger, Tamsin Egerton, Gemma Arteton, Elizabeth Taylor, Elizabeth Hurley, Kelly Brook, Keira Knightly, Naomi Watts…….. and many many more for that matter :)
