Dominicana Models Heralded In Vogue As The New ‘It’ Girls


Milly Reuter of the Dominican Republic

NEW YORK – The second-most shared story on Vogue’s website today is that Dominicana women have replaced Brazilian models as the new, most in-demand exotic models in the world.

The article features five women from the Dominican Republic: Ysaunny Brito, Lineisy Montero, Milly Reuter, Luisana Gonzalez and Afrodita Dorado Dominguez.

“Like any other fashion trend, model scouts tend to hone in on a locale (Brazil, Russia) and seek out the very best in what it has to offer, and this season, models from the Dominican Republic were front and center at nearly every big show,” Vogue reporter Janelle Okwodu writes. “While Dominican catwalkers have always had a place in fashion, with stars like Omahyra Mota and Arlenis Sosa setting the standard, the Spring 2016 season provided a moment for the new generation to shine.”

Meanwhile, when the Vogue story was posted to the Virgin Islands Free Press’ Facebook site and the “St. Croix Sync Tank” on Facebook it immediately started burning up the Internet, getting more attention than 95% of all the other posts so far today.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
