Strength: ''She's the only contestant I had never met before, which meant I didn't have too many preconceived ideas about who she was.''
Weakness: ''As much as she is very true to herself and her faith, in an industry that requires you to walk that thin line between what's okay and what's not, you can run yourself into trouble.''
2 of 14
Strength: ''She has that confidence, and confidence is key to being a successful model.''
Weakness: ''Her confidence is borderline. Conceit is not an attractive attribute.''
3 of 14
Strength: ''She's very vivacious, has a huge smile, and people love her. She's a crowd-pleaser.''
Weakness: ''But at the same time, that overexuberance can end up looking a bit cheesy and on the opposite end of the editorial, high-end-fashion mode that Italian Vogue is looking for.''
4 of 14
Strength: ''You walk with her outside and people know her by name. That's a powerful thing to have if you're trying to be an All-Star.''
Weakness: ''Her look isn't everyone else's cup of tea. It isn't particularly chic and has an element of being slightly trashy.''
5 of 14
Strength: ''She's a little more serious, a little more intense. She's someone you feel can be a friend. She's a bit like a rock.''
Weakness: ''But is that sexy? Is that flirty? Is that exciting? Not necessarily. In fashion, there's that element of danger sometimes.''
6 of 14
Strength: ''You want the raw emotion to come out in a photograph, and she has that. She's gorgeous, she's tall, she has a lot of experience, and she's got a great body — one of the best of the bunch as far as model statistics.''
Weakness: ''One of her biggest problems is knowing when to react to something and when to not. That emotional roller coaster causes a lot of confrontation.''
7 of 14
Strength: ''I think she has two children now and you'd never know it. She's in incredible shape. When she's not androgynous, she's looking like a sex bomb.''
Weakness: ''She does the right thing a lot of the time, but sometimes you need to cause a commotion. There's got to be an element of creating your own look that makes you stand out not just in appearance but in character, too. It's important, especially in All-Stars, to be multidimensional.''
8 of 14
Strength: ''She was a homeless young boy who's become a young girl. What a powerful individual and role model. A big part of All-Stars is being a role model.''
Weakness: ''Of course her story is also a part of what makes her perhaps unacceptable for certain people, and it's something she'll always have to deal with.''
9 of 14
Strength: ''She's one of our va-va-voom girls, the girl who gives you a wink when you go by. I find it slightly humorous.''
Weakness: ''With the nuances of the fashion business, you want to have many different shades to whatever color you are. You shouldn't be one tone.''
10 of 14
Strength: ''She has these massive eyes, she's awkward, and she has this unusual way of walking, but it's signature and unique.''
Weakness: ''Her problem is also her advantage. She needs to know how to harness [her awkwardness].''
11 of 14
Strength: ''She's a charming girl, very beautiful and ingratiating, and manages to endear everybody she speaks to. That's her power.''
Weakness: ''But is that too sickly sweet? There's an element within the fashion industry with the bad-girl aspect. It's something that'll make you more exclusive.''
12 of 14
Strength: ''She's the girl who slept in train stations and was virtually homeless. She had a tough story and wants it really badly.''
Weakness: ''But she's fragile at the same time. She takes things very much to heart and can explode.''
13 of 14
Strength: ''She came out of her cycle and announced she was gay. She was abused, and had a difficult family life and a dramatic story.''
Weakness: ''This is All-Stars, and a lot of girls have great stories. The gay card or abused-child card won't necessarily play out in the same way. What is it about you that's new and interesting?''
14 of 14
Strength: ''She was just on, and she's very familiar with how everything works. It's like an extension of the previous cycle for her.''
Weakness: ''She can be quite bitchy and lippy. And has she had time to realize what the rest of her life will be like after the show? It'll be interesting to see how she copes with the other girls.''
