From duckling to swan.

Miranda Kerr. First impression: “She would always do her castings with her blonde friend, another Aussie who would always get the job. She never booked the jobs.”

Rosie Huntington-Whitely. First impression: “Upbeat character, she seemed to have her eye on the big picture.”

Abbey Lee Kershaw. First impression: “They kept sending her over to hang out. I wasn’t sure why, neither was she.”

Chanel Iman. First impression: “Realized how young these kids are. She needed a hug that day.”

Daul Kim. First impression: “We just connected in a nerdy bloggy kind of way; lots of staring and grunting sounds.”

Can you imagine a time when Miranda Kerr was upstaged by some blonde or Abbey Lee was unsure of herself? These snaps are test polaroid shots of Douglas Perrett, founder and creative director of casting agency COACD. They were taken between the year 2000 and 2010. How adorable do these little supermodels look?! Naw.

Perrett has compiled these shots into a book, unfortunately there are only going to 250 copies of the book printed, to be used as gifts for COACD’s client list.

Hope you enjoyed these images though! It’s nice to see the way these girls have grown into the beautiful, confident women they are today. Like the ugly duckling becoming a swan. Not that any of these girls are even remotely close to ugly – they’re all stunning and always have been!

Hopefully one day I’ll turn into a swan…hahaha NOT. I’ll just resign myself to being a duck 🙂
I’m all cool with that.
