I'm sure even Kate Moss often looks 'quite ordinary' in real life.

Fashion imagery has absolutely nothing to do with reality. Fashion imagery is all about fabricating a fantasy/illusion using a variety of different methods and components. Models are merely one part of the equation. The purpose of a go-see is simply to determine whether a model has the potential to be one of those components.

A go-see photo is not a 'fashion image'. It's just a reference snapshot.

Looking at a go-see photo and saying "dont think any of them are going to be the next kate moss" is like looking at blank canvas and saying "dont think that's going to be the next Mona Lisa" or looking at a pile of bricks and saying "dont think that's going to be the next Guggenheim".

what a weak and kinda ridiculous argument Aaron k

so you're saying any old human being could be a fashion model once they're all dressed up with make up on?

i agree with the other annon that all the finalists are really a bit average
and noone said it was your go-see photos which made them look average, no need to get defensive haha

Laura looks AMAZING! i think aaron k knows what he's talking about - hes not saying everyone can be a model with the right clothes and makeup. just that goo-sees are important to see if the model has the right structure and look to be the foundation of the illusion/vision that is being created.

Also telling someone
"no need to get defensive" when they're not is just annoying
