Help me to understand. Is she a ''runway model'' these days? Is her height (or lack thereof) pose a problem for her modeling career? I'm guessing she's about 5' 4'' or 5' 5'' tall. I always thought your classic runway models were much much taller. I remember seeing a picture of Itano Tomomi modeling designer handbags years ago in Japan and they posed her standing between two European models who appeared to be over 6 feet taller. And I remember laughing at the caption which, more or less, read------''this is why Japanese women do not become runway fashion models''.
