She’s a real love-her-or-hate-her model. I can see her not being to everyone’s taste (she doesn’t have the otherworldliness of Emily DiDonato, or the bubbly bombshell aura of Kate Upton, for example). But she looks like a hot, approachable girl in one of your college classes. She’d probably be on the volleyball team and prefer a beer to a cosmo. I think that’s what hooks the guys who are hooked by her.
There is, of course, room for varying opinions, and to each his own. Having said that, anyone who thinks Julie is ugly does not know how to look at women.
