Unique vs. pretty? - Models?
I've been wondering...what kind of people model agencies are looking for these days? They aren't only looking for really good looking ones but also looking for unique ones right? Take...I don't know, Devon Aoki for example, she was found as her mixed race combination, she is half Japanese and half German, and also have freckles, it makes her look very unique. So what do you guys think? By the way: I am asking this question because I am simply 'interested' in everyone's opinions, no other reason.

They definitely prefer unique and conventional looking girls over the girl-next-door type pretty, especially for runway modeling and high fashion print ads.

There are a lot of pretty/beautiful people in this world. There are a lot of tall people too. But it all boils down to the features.
