Is Gemma Going Down (I Hope Not)

March 27th, 2006 // 9 Comments

Does Gemma Ward need to start looking for a new career? A look-a-like in the form of Sasha Pivivarova might be upstaging the alien beauty. Who cares if they’re from two different countries? Just look at this pic and see if you can tell them apart.

Frightening, isn’t it? One thing’s for sure though. Sash looks much less like an alien that Gemma, which spells v-e-r-s-a-t-i-l-i-t-y. And while Gemma wasn’t much of a presence at New York Fashion Week, guess who was? That’s right, sneaky little Sasha managed to get her hands on a number of catwalks. Fine, Gemma did a lot more shows in Milan and Paris but was nowhere near as ubiquitous as she was at last year’s fashion weeks. Hmmm.

Ok, maybe she doesn’t need to worry all that much. She’s still the number two model. Boring, old how-did-she-even-get-to-be-number-one Daria is at the top. Newcomer Sasha still has a little ways to go before she breaks into the top 5, but of course in the modeling world that’s about a couple of months. Look at Sasha on the W cover.

Someone’s starting to get all mainstream. And is it a coincidence that it’s called the Power Issue? I think not. Gemma better be looking into acting. She better be getting herself an agent and some scripts. Because where else can you have a career end at 18? Just warning you Gemma. Not everyone can be Kate Moss and working at 31.

    Gemma (who is my all time favorite supermodel) is the one on the left. Simply Beautiful! Sasha always looks pissed off and posessed to me.

    I am so sure everyone is scrambling to own these fine albino nun outfits!

    I’m pretty sure it’s “Pivovarova.”

    This Sasha girl looks great in the W cover, but in the severe white outfit she looks freaky. Meaning – she doesn’t do severe out-there fashion (aka couture) well. B/c of her slight doll-ness, I think Gemma Ward brings a softness to the freakier fashions, which makes her perfect for modelling couture. I don’t think Sasha’ll fare as well as Gemma.

    the difference is that gemma is way hotter! they have the same look, but gemma’s just better at it – sasha’s usually not so wide eyed, and just doesn’t pull off the doll thing as well.

    i LOVE sasha and dont really like gemma that much anymore, even though i used to.
    and yes it is “pivovarova”.
    sasha looks so scary on the catwalk but her look is so much edgier than gemma’s. gemma annoys me now. i’m not sure why. i think she tries to be older than she is.

    Gemma is way prettier and better than Sasha.
