    I know she has a thread dedicated to her journey, but I thought she deserved a proper profile thread too. I had actually toyed with the idea of making one earlier, however I have a closer relationship with her than I do most other models on SG and it seemed invasive to put her here for some reason. However I think this show season is going to be huge for her (she's already being touted as one to watch by numerous large publications) and if I didn't make a thread, it was only a matter of time before someone else did. She's a real beauty, a talent, and an incredibly kind soul too.

    Ooh, thanks for making that thread, I was thinking about doing it too, but I swear to god I think I've seen hers a few months back.. probably hallucinated..

    Anyway, I love her, she really grew on me! :oops:
    What she has gone through is even more inspiring! I hope she makes it big, she deserves it!

    She reminds a bit of Gemma in certain pictures. I love her lips as well ;) She pulls of the bee-stung look a lot better than Lindsey Wixson imo!

    She does kind of pulls the same face a lot of the time though... it suits her very well, but she should widen her range of facial expressions I think :)

    I love her face and her story is just so inspiring to me, I just instantly loved her for it, haha. I was super excited to see her at couture week and I really hope she'll walk some big shows at FW :)

    She looks great, although it would be nice to see some facial variation. :whistling:

    I think she could stand to lose some more on her thighs. She has already come so far! :)

    The stylist doesn't look half bad either.

    I'm so impressed by her journey
    And I'm also impressed by her modelling
    Not to sound rude, but I'm kind of surprised how much I like her work. I think because she really worked to achieve her body she has a better work ethic for modelling, and is more sure of her body and what she wants to achieve in modelling

    I'm sure we'll see plenty of great work from her if she chooses to continue to develop her modelling prowess

    Yep, and I was surprised to see her SO MUCH this season, she was even first face at dsquared, pretty amazing! :highfive:

    She walked 31 shows!! :)

    Again, kudos for her for going from obese (literally!) http://static2.stuff.co.nz/1346632268/484/7601484.jpg

    to high-fashion skinny:

    I totally agree about the work ethic. Maybe this is terrible of me to say, but generally speaking I find East European models to be the hardest working. It's astounding to me that a girl in her situation found it in herself to make such a drastic lifestyle change.

    New Zealanders do have a reputation of being hard workers too though.. maybe not so much in the modeling arena as it's not one NZ has really dominated in (yet), but generally speaking.

    Because if you don't work your ass off, you go back to Eastern Europe, and that's a much better motivation to work than for other models, who just go back to relatively cosy countries like England or America ;)

    On the other hand, Eastern European girls are also more prone to giving up with the excuse ''I'll just marry a wealthy guy'' (4 girls from my class in high school are already married; I'm 21 for fuck's sake), because it's a really patriarchal culture and that kind of thinking is acceptable. Every society has their lazy quitters. ;)

    Anyway, on topic: I love Holly, when it comes to weight loss she's more inspirational than any other model , she's the only one who does not and can not sell that stupid, frustrating story about skinny genes. (except for Snejana, maybe, she was also chubs before starting her career)

    She looks like a pretty, skinny, doll-like version of Wixson!
