Quote Me: According To Jennifer Starr, Model Casting Is Getting A Lot More Diverse

Things have changed dramatically, but we still have a ways to go. Years ago, if you looked at an agency's roster, maybe 2 percent was black and 1 percent was Asian. I am not faulting the agencies, though; if there was demand, there would have been more. Today, if you open up the newest issue of Vogue, you'll see Joan Smalls, Liu Wen, and Arlenis Sosa representing the most prestigious beauty brands in the business. The challenge for fashion brands is to understand what is considered "cool" in Tokyo, as that’s different than London or Austin, Texas. We have to piece together an inclusive casting of people, but stay on point with the message of the brand. Now, as casting directors, we have to cast our nets further by traveling ourselves or using social media to find that tattooed skater boy who is just as likely to come from Singapore as he is from Bushwick.

Want To Be In 'Sex And The City'?

Victoria Beckham will be, Katie Price might be, and who really knows about Patricia Field in the wardrobe department...but now's your turn (maybe) to get close to Carrie Bradshaw. Movie producers of the 'Sex and the City' sequel are holding an open casting call for movie extras on Aug. 4, according to Popwatch.

Be sure to stop in if you fit any of the following categories: "international types," professional soccer players, fashion models, urban club goers, gays and lesbians, celebrity types or upscale socialites. We're not sure what this means for the plot, but let us know what happens if you go to the call.
