Dueling Julies

Did a bit of a double-take on Swim Daily today. This is, of course, not the Julie Henderson I’m accustomed to seeing in SI.
This Julie Henderson has a bit of a Tyra-meets-Noemie look to her. And as a bonus, she’s one of a handful of casting call candidates who’s not a blonde white chick.

Don’t get me wrong. Blonde white chicks in the swimsuit issue are awesome. My Julie Henderson is a blonde white chick

And the casting call I’m by far most excited about? Another blonde white chick.

But SI is trotting out a lot of them in the casting calls.

Including Hailey Clauson, who’s actually been confirmed via paparazzo.
2013 and 2014 brought us sixteen rookies, and the vast majority were white. Let’s get a bigger splash of diversity.

It was pretty stunning last year with 12 rookies that there was only one African/Asian American and one Dominican included.
