Suvi Koponen

are you joking me?

well well well, never in a milliion years would i have guessed that Suvi Koponen was the winner of Finlands next top model!

I don't see Danielle, Caridee and co strutting down the runway at Prada, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs. So few of the thousands of reality tv stars who are constantly bombarding our screens actually make something of themselves so I'm pretty impressed that someone who's making a name for herself in the farrrshan industry came from a Next Top Model show.....

Maybe theres hope.

Wow, impressive! Season 2 of Hollands Next Topmodel is on, the first winner of HNTM, Sanne, has won the Elle Elite Model competition!

& about that post, it is coming this week! Sorry for the lack of it lately :P!

Yeah, what was with Caridee's Seventeen cover anyway? It was nowhere as cool as "high fashion". If they actually gave them good prizes like non teen magazines and runway shows instead of covergirl, they could go places. It seems like the Americans who basically invented reality tv don't know how to do it properly. Rubin?

WOW I would have never guess Suvi came from a Top Model show, that is amazing. Considering that the winners of the original American version disappear into obscurity rather quickly. Once in a while you'd find them doing Walmart fashion shows. Yeah.

Actually, Suvi didn't win a Finland's Next Top Model - competition, because the whole Next Top Model phenomenon didn't exist yet back then in our small and distant Finland. :D She won a finnish (non-Tyra-based) reality TV-show called Mallikoulu (Model school). So maybe that's why she made it further than f.ex. Caridee & co. because all the big shots in fashion industry didn't know that she'd won a TV-competition. But even us Finns surely didn't expect her to go this far! :) I rememer her in the beginning of the show... the walk... OMG - Jay Alexander would have fainted on the runway, it was so bad. :D But now she's fabulous! <3 It always raises patriotic pride in my heart when I see her face in the big magazines like Vogue. :D
