Previous thread: >>237156

Last thread maxed out.
Dako-chin let herself get fat, bald and sallow and continues to upload hilariously unrealistic, heavily edited selfies to her Instagram, but hasn't been obviously buying views/followers ever since aomw farmers started checking her shit with Socialblade. Dako hasn't booked a decent quality job in over a year now, opting instead to do app game ads and web shows as a novelty guest. Pic related is from the most legit job she's had in ages, a commercial for a candy that she probably got by technicality for still being inexplicably signed to Bravo models. It was also discovered that she's a direct booking client, means her potential employers only have her hilariously inaccurate Bravo profile measurements and her photoshopped portfolio to go by if they want to hire her. Anons continue to speculate and wonder how she can afford a 2LDR in Shibuya and how she keeps her visa&contract despite hardly working and getting shit tier token gaijin gigs.

I truly don't understand why her hair is this bad. I actually feel sorry for her in this regard. :( Also, this may have been mentioned in the previous thread, but that eyeshadow palette is a couple of months old. And I'm also pretty sure Tonymoly isn't vegan and tests on animals.

I doubt it would have fit if she'd tried to pull it down. Plus, non-elastic skirts that have clasp or button closures are supposed to be worn on your natural waist, which Dakota doesn't really have. So it probably just rode up on her.

not here to ass-kiss kooter, but it is actually ok to use products meant for "mature" skin when you are still young. Starting a routine in your early 20's is ideal. The products she has look super cheap though.

She needs to get some Olay Regenerist. Affordable and does an ok enough job.

I realize that using anti-aging products are good even at a young age, but no, she shouldn't be using something specifically marketed towards mature skin. It's going to be way too heavy.

Because it's more believable. She's living in Tokyo for going on 5 years now in a big apartment and has a contract with Bravo just for being white & speaking Japanese, despite her obvious weight gain, hair loss and lack of work? Totes. She had maybe 2 good years where her being a model was believable, but she let herself go so hard that it's not even remotely feasible anymore. Girls lose contracts with companies like Bravo for gaining a few too many cm on their waist or bust, yet Dakota gained 15+ pounds and there's printed proof of it yet her Bravo profile still lies about her measurements and has a portfolio full of edited headshots of her wearing heavy makeup and extensions/wigs.

no one here knows how much money she makes now or back then, there's no check showing she gets 1000 yen monthly these days. so it's ludicrous to automatically believe she must not even be making enough to pay rent, and from that jump straight into "she must be fucking that old man in exchange for money, it's the only explanation". but whatever, just like the people who hardcore wanna believe she's in her mid twenties with no proof, i know there are certain anons who are gonna fight for this theory even if the only way they can back it up is with even more theories.

I didn't say shit about how much money she makes, Sperg. All I said was she shouldn't still be signed to Bravo, that they lie about her measurements, she shouldn't be able to afford her apartment and she doesn't get enough legit work to justify an entertainment visa. Hell, her own profile on Bravo has her most recent work listed as 02/2016 for Last Kiss and the second Hiromichi Nakano fashion show which was also in 2016. Nothing about Takoaka Kimono fest, Fitts, Tiara Milly, BTSSB, or any of the other D-list gigs she gets. She does the same amount of work that bored foreigners do to supplement their income, not A-list agency work. The only time she gets something through Bravo is when several other Bravo models get the same jobs and they just throw her in.

No. 258529

Speculations are there for a reason. Being a model isn't that great, it's been proven that it doesn't pay that much especially if you're not a high-end one.

It just doesn't make sense that :
- Kota is getting less and less gigs and still can live in a flat in Tokyo instead of those dormitories models are crammed in
- She's definitely gotten fat(ter) and doesn't seem anxious at being dropped, otherwise she'd haul her ass to the gym like any other model

When you look at it, it makes the most sense that she's getting money from somewhere besides her modeling jobs. It could be her family supporting her like Taylor's did but we know they aren't that loaded. She could have a husband/sugar daddy on the side but then how didn't she get dropped by Bravo after causing problems in Korea, being nasty on a comedy show and getting fatter and balder by the day ?

Even her japanese fanbase is getting sick of her, so the whole real barbie girl stick is over now. Honestly it makes the most sense that her manager is pulling some strings to keep her around and what for if it wasn't for shagging her ?

No. 258664


That still doesn't explain why she's still listed as a model and why they are lying about her.

I'm also certain that she hasn't even finished high school which would mean she doesn't qualify for that type of job. ( though I read sugar daddies sometimes hire their sugar babies as personal assistants/ receptionist. So she could personally work for Hiroshi but not the company )

No. 258746

They are a different kind of model than even a commercial model in the west. A lot of Popteen models start off as Dokusha models (literally reader models) girls who are teenagers and might read the magazines themselves (It's also the reason that most of those types of magazines have exclusively Japanese models) . They are supposed to look cute - not beautiful- and make the popular fashion look good. They are more relatable as opposed to aspirational.
But Koots missed the mark because she wasn't relatable and stopped seeming aspirational really fast.
The only reason she got Popteen anyway was because of Candydoll and her connection at the time to Tsubasa.

>tl;dr- Different kinds of models have different standards and Koots manages to meet none of them.

No. 258749

Popteen and other magazines aimed at teen girls use "ugly" or average models so that the girls who read their magazines can better relate to them. That also why they are allowed to have their own makeup and styles, and do tutorials.

No. 258751


So… They picked Koots because she's ugly ?

No. 258756

Hiroshi picked her because he liked her, Popteen picked her because she used to actually be cute and at least pretended for a while to have a personality. But her appeal was that she got famous and looked like a doll with only makeup and hairstyling, which any girl could do. Too bad they couldn't spot the photoshop and then had to roll with it once her real face was plastered everywhere.

Nope because they thought their readers would like her. She was presented like a literal doll in her intro. They were riding the Candydoll wave.
They thought she would be aspirational. They even super-shooped her her in the beginning. Pic related.

Really wish we could get to the bottom of where Kota is getting this privileges from.
Im one of the 'fucking for money' folks because its one of the plausible. Shes the worst kind of model and she would have been dropped ages ago but she got a gajin hunter for a manager. And yes men would do a fucking lot for their favorite piece of candy. Ive heaed of men faking businesses to scam investors for money to pay for their side piece's gifts and shit.

No. 258772

Because shes a fucking model. All female models have to maintain a certain weight and measurement no matter the country. Girls will get dropped for being a few cm over. And her ass has always been chubby and out of shape; not even a basic tone body from light workouts.

No. 258777

Yeah, I'm sure the magazine that's outlining her shooped pictures like some obsessed waifufag couldn't possibly have fudged the numbers and are being completely truthful in saying that she weighs 88 pounds.

You're repulsed by people criticizing a model about her weight but not the blatant objectification and exploitative nature of that zine spread?

No. 258785

Dude she gained about 25lbs while modeling in Japan. She screwed herself into a hole by lying about her weight and measurements to be begin with (you were never 5'4" and 88lbs Koots) but then she went from being about 100lbs when she got there to about 125lbs now. No that isn't in any way fat for a regular person but for a model in Japan, it's big.

>And yes men would do a fucking lot for their favorite piece of candy
Too true. Even happens in high fashion with genuinely quality girls.

this comment actually triggered me.

It's been said like a dozen times in this thread that Kooter is fat for a model and she is fat by Japan's standards. I don't know how many times people have to clarify this until people stop whiteknighting her.

No. 258841

All my japanese friends are called fat by their parents and they are average. Their parents even call them that while in front of their friends. Japanese people are savage when it's about weight. So yes, Kota is fat for Japan. She could improve a lot by cutting her hair, cutting bangs again and going to the gym 3 times per week (and eating healthy + taking care of her skin and hair). She could be cute again and could book decent jobs. But her ass is lazy and prefers to stay in the couch (and maybe suck Hiroshi's dick)

No. 258852

Nah have you seen the average Japanese some of them is fugly as shit. Popteen picked their models on cuteness and marketable. Imo michopa, and that other model name nachos or something is the cutest. All their models have a niche yura is the pure innocent Asian lol. Mochopa is the rocker edgy type. That other chick Nicola is the harajuku style type. Koots niche was the living doll but when she start letting herself go popteen kicked her out along with she awkward as hell around the other models

No. 258856

Everytime someone mention weight on this thread it triggers the fatty Chans. Koots is fat for a model take it or leave it. We don't need a whole thread derailed just because your feelings were hurt because you're a fatty like koots.

No. 258859

They pretty much got Nicorun to replace Koots. She's actually hafu, relatable, fluent in Japanese, younger, actually thin, good personality, and she became super popular. As soon as she was in, her being hafu fulfilled the exotic niche that Koots used to occupy, so the started using Koots less and less.

No. 258861

I agree with everyone in this thread. Dakota is a model, that is why we judge her to a higher standard. That and Dakota is short. Five pounds is actually a lot of weight to gain for a model her height.

Models are suppose to be cute clothes hangers for designers. Flat tummy and a waist is what they want for females.

Heck, even being fit but having a sexy plump ass and thick thighs is frowned upon for the average model. But for normal girls it is the ideal.

At this point she should use shapewear

Sorry if this has been discussed before, I've been following Koots for a while now on lolcow and still have a few questions.

How good is her Japanese? I know nothing about the language.

Also, how did she learn Japanese? Did she study it intensively before going to Japan or what?

Thanks in advance.

No. 258967

Honestly, it's good. Very upper level conversational with a good accent and intonation. Her grammar and vocab are not great but because of her accent, she can pass for fluent. Very natural sounding for a foreigner. A good ear I guess.
She learned on the job in Japan. Before she came she hadn't studied much. It only got really good when she started working at Popteen.

Thanks for the answer, anon. Appreciate it. I feel like a newfag for asking this.

I'm curious, do the Japanese girls make fun of other models' weight and such while being completely savage about it or is it just Kota? What do they say about the other models compared to what they say about her? Sometimes the comments that come out of girls channel that have been posted are more vicious than here. Which is funny because the Ostrengas heavily target here more but it's completely okay when the Japanese make fun of her.

She lies about everything. I mean it seems almost pathological. Why did she lie about how she learned Japanese 3 or 4 times differently each time? Why did she lie about wearing child's clothing?

Rich coming from Japanese girls considering pretty much all of them use meitu on every one of their selfies.

She was also the only one wearing a suuper baggy shirt which was really weird.

It looks like she was the only one who didn't bring a change of clothing to play in. She was wearing the white button down from the photo-shoot which was apparently huge on her.

No. 259730

Popteen is a teen fashion magazine that was(and is) pretty much a gyaru staple. Fits is type of candy sold by the manufacture Lottes.
That video was actually an event that Popteen models did with their readers. A lot of the girls in the video are fans of magazine and models, which in retrospect makes it even more obnoxious that Koots was acting like a sour bitch.

No. 259733

She missed so many verbal cues in these videos that I wouldn't be surprised that she had no idea what she was showing up for.

She had no clue what was going on during each of these children's PhysEd class activities either. Probably more so because she was freaking homeschooled.

I think they lazily cut her out because she's not part of Popteen but they're releasing old videos only now.

At her height, she could be 120-125. According to her height, B/W/H, and other measurements from the last time Popteen printed them, not to mention just looking at candids of her, 54-56kg would be believable. Pic related.

I mean at that point, it wasn't even that. She was doing this with Popteen (which was pretty much the height of her modeling success). Basically all of the popular models were there and they were having fun. Only Koots was acting like a sad sack.

That actually made me feel really bad. She looks like the typical socially stunted outcast in class. I bet she must have felt very embarassed, she doesn't seem to understand what's going on half the time.

That said, she could have put a bit more effort and good energy, at least in smiling more. Her posture is terribly introverted in these, she looks miserable. It's her job to look good so she could've at least pretended, no wonder she got fired.

I noticed that too. I wonder what she said or if she maybe complained thinking it would be funny to.

Honestly Dakota probably did get picked apart by the other girls, but who wouldn't nickpick her. She's given special treatment,doesn't meet standards and is a miserable bitch in every video. Even popteen lied for her just like Bravo. I'd be pretty annoyed if someone came in and half assed everything and didn't have to work hard to maintain their weight/looks, and got treated better then most and labeled "real barbie" when looking like a slab of ham.

She labeled herself "real Barbie" on YT and then later pretended it was just what Chinese news channels started calling her.

I'm aware of that anon, but the Japanese carried on with calling her that even after she stopped. Its like her introduction when she does go on Tv. ( and then disappointment when you watch her stand beside her shoops from 2012 while its 2017 now ) Think she'd cue in that they liked those edits more then her current ones when they only use the really old ones.

No. 259808

I honestly don't think she was bullied or not picked especially not to her face. I think the other models gave her a chance. In the beginning they even hung out with her outside of work. Obviously she wore out her welcome in some way and they up on her. Maybe they couldn't relate culturally or maybe she couldn't read the social atmosphere. There are a lot of reasons they have ended up not liking her. But even this video is a good example. She doesn't try to have fun and at the end whenever else is standing she decided to sit like a lump on the stage. It's like if she's not the center of attention she can't pretend to care about anyone else.

No. 259814

This. I remember a Popteen backstage video where one of the models went around with a camera 'interviewing' the other models. When she got to Dakota, she was sitting by herself at a table scrolling through her phone. The camera girl spoke to her and Dakota didn't even look up from her phone at first, and when she saw the camera she covered her face. She seems like the kind of person who stays quietly buried in their phone off to the side at parties.

in these videos she seems to have realized just how much her "star power" is fading. that or she was already aware and it's being made all the more clear. dakota got so much attention on the news. she was showered with interviews and extreme praise. it was all about her, she was a sensation in pop culture for just a bit. for an extreme narcissist who grew up in an overbearing household, it was heaven.

and now time has passed. people got bored. she was revealed to not look much like her "doll" self she was advertising. for awhile, she rode the wave. but the attention continued to fade, and fade, and fade.

watching how all the other girls are having fun, wearing cute flattering clothes, having the cameras focused on them far more than her, it must have stung.

and now, it seems, after trying her best with a new photoshopped 'look', she is giving up. she doesn't care anymore. she looks hollow inside, honestly. like she's withering away just like her care toward being a famous model in japan.

No. 260103

Is that Hiroshi romance confirmed or is it just a theory?

No. 260104

It's all really complicated tbh. But this is my interpretation.
As crazy as it sounds to us, Koots is still riding her rep as a living doll and Bravo is good for pushing that narrative aggressively. She's not blacklisted because Bravo, the agency could get pissed and not hire out their other models (and they have a big name pool of talent in their direct booking section). But more than that, it would also be considered very rude to blacklist her, especially since Koots is a foreigner. As a foreign model, her agency and not her is held responsible for her mistakes and if Bravo isn't stepping up and taking responsibility, no one is necessarily going to call them on it for fear of disrupting the wa. And that's a big piece of it. If she were Japanese, Dakota would have been blacklisted, but because she's gaijin people don't call her on her bullshit and give her a lot more passes than she deserves.

way tl;dr- Bravo counts on Japanese professional politeness to keep getting Dakota jobs. Dakota accidentally gaijin smashes her way through the JP model/entertainment industry.

No. 260106

Samefag but just to add. You'll notice she rarely gets rebooked for jobs and doesn't seem to have clients that use her over and over. Basically, once the client is done with her, they seem not use her again, but they won't complain to Bravo. They just won't use her.

Oh thank you for answering.

>t's pretty obvious someone at the agency is pulling strings for her.

I think it's not a bad theory but, I'm going to compare her situation with Taylor's:

Taylor is still listed as a model and has an entertainment visa but she rarely works as a model, does this mean someone in her agency is pulling the strings for her so she can stay in Japan? mmmh, I think sometimes the agency simply likes them and believes in them, even if they aren't popular all the time, if they get some good jobs every once in a while, it's better and cheaper for them and potential costumers to have them around than to pay airplane tickets, make the arrangements etc.

Also, take into consideration that Dakota speaks Japanese, this helps her a lot, Japanese people enjoy to see foreigners that speak the language more than you think, she has been on TV shows many times, fashion shows, magazines etc.

Not saying someone's not helping, she was underage when she first arrived, so she probably had a very special contract and treatment (they paid the rent, taxis, etc), and maybe her agency still pays a part of her expenses. It depens on your contract.

No. 260125

Makes sense, anon.
they'd rather avoid confrontation and just put up with her, lest they damage their relationship with bravo in the future, or anyone else because who wants to be seen as potentially difficult…

No. 260127

Apologies in advance for the essay:

>Taylor is still listed as a model and has an entertainment visa but she rarely works as a model, does this mean someone in her agency is pulling the strings for her so she can stay in Japan?

Taylor gets away with it, because her agency isn't footing her bills.If they were she would either be working a lot more or out on her ass.

> I think sometimes the agency simply likes them and believes in them, even if they aren't popular all the time, if they get some good jobs every once in a while

No it doesn't work like that. Because if Koots isn't working regularly she is costing Bravo money. Maybe, she is like Taylor and she is being provided for by someone then bravo could keep her without worrying about the financial aspect. But if she's not, her agency is footing the bill.

>Also, take into consideration that Dakota speaks Japanese, this helps her a lot, Japanese people enjoy to see foreigners that speak the language more than you think, she has been on TV shows many times, fashion shows, magazines etc.

Dakota's Japanese is not amazing. Moreover, she not the only white model to speak Japanese and not even the best. She got on TV because someone got her on TV.

>she was underage when she first arrived, so she probably had a very special contract and treatment

Most models are underage. You know that right? Do you think they all get super special sweetheart contracts. That's rich. Tell that to the 15 year olds on shitty 3 month contracts at Bravo hustling to make money to send back to their families in Russia and Eastern Europe.
Sorry for the tone anon, but this has been talked around ad nauseum. We can't know for sure but if you have any knowledge of the way the industry works, it's a more than reasonable guess.

Her Bravo portfolio is full of extremely flattering shooped pics of her in lolita or sitting down, with her fake measurements even on her print composite. They're outright lying about their client and letting her get away with it. They can lie for as long as they want, but just because they're Bravo doesn't mean everyone else will swallow it forever.

I think Taylor's agency keeps her because she has a pretty auccsssful YouTube channel. I remember watching one of her vids talking about the direction of her channel stating that her agency was wanting to know what she had planned out. Dakot had nothing and does nothing. She gave up her YouTube years ago

No. 260221

Agreed. I think Taylor's agency considers YouTube to be an understated or less significant form of tarento. She's earning money through revenue, sometimes promotes products (iherb for example), and has a strong social media presence, so her lack of bookings can be set aside.
Dakota's Youtube has flatlined and there's no growth potential. She has Instagram, which is usually really beneficial for models, but she doesn't know how to use it to promote herself or make companies want to work with her. Also, when you start accepting low quality jobs it really lowers the bar for future bookings. That's why a lot of models who pose for major things like Vogue are unpaid. They do it to help their career in hopes they get better paying jobs. This girl gets paid peanuts to do low level shit.

No. 260223

they keep her because they can just throw any easy job on her lap once in a while - let's face it… she doesn't need the money. Modeling for Tay is basically just a hobby to earn a little cash on the side

No. 260252

The big difference between Taylor and Kooter is that Taylor has a presence. Taylor's YT has interest attached to it and Bravo probably gets a look at what sponsors she gets offered.

Plus she's a good worker to have. She looks the way she does IRL and in case she'd become super popular on YT, Bravo already has her under a contract that benefits them. I wouldn't be surprised if some other agencies would like to poach her.

As many others have pointed out, Kooter is not working any of her platforms. What she puts out isn't interesting enough. It's just some photos of herself. Her outfits are not especially note worthy.

No. 260278

taylor also mentioned that the modelling industry is dying and they're relying more on an online presence. i know in the western world they're hiring models more and more based on how many followers they have on instagram. so social media really is a big part of modelling these days, and will be around long for the future. even if taylor isn't working very much now, i'm sure she has a lot of opportunities waiting for her should she ever want to start. i wish she would tbh i really enjoyed her modelling.

I've been modelling since I was 15 years old. You don't get a special treatment just because you're underage. They don't paid for your expenses. Well, they do. But they just lend you the money, you have to pay back with your earns. You're mostly in debt. My parents had to send me money 24/7 and most designers pay you with clothes, not real money. You also share flat with 4 or 5 more girls. Dakota has been living alone since the first time she step a foot in Japan. She receives a special treatment because she was an internet sensation and might be fucking someone from Bravo. Look at Kendall, Gigi, Bella… they also receive a special treatment because who they are, due to their surnames. They don't have to go to castings and they're in all shows. All the models I know that have worked with them are hella mad because of the treatment they receive, if they cancel a show the night before there's no problem. But if I cancel a show, I'm out and my career ends. This is why Popteen models didn't like Dakota. If some of them gain 5 kg they'll tell them to follow a liquid diet so they'll lose weight (my former flatmate was told that) If Dakota gains 5kg, they just let her cover her stomach with a towel.

Not the Anon you're replying to, but maybe it was in the beginning. In the beginning she was all over news sites and Tv and many people were spreading her images all over ( especially her family ).

No, that's why I said she might be fucking someone from Bravo. I've seen girls that are model material being fired, so why is she still with Bravo? Sexual favours or her parents are paying to keep her contract. It's sad to see young girls crying because the agency doesn't want to continue representing them and then see Dakota gaining more and more weight and not taking care of herself and still be in Bravo. I think that's one of the reasons why Kota is buying followers. My agency does a lot of reposts from our accounts and also promote us in their network sites so we will gain more followers. If Bravo did the same with Kota, people would laugh and Bravo would end up looking like a shit agency in the eyes of the top people from the industry (think about people like Anna Wintour). What would you think if an agency that claims to be on the top posted pictures of a girl that shoops to hell and back to look like an alien fetus? They would stain their image. I guess she's "okay"" for Japan commercials since she's foreign, blonde and white. But not "okay" to be in a high fashion model agency. The only short and not too pretty to be models I've seen getting big gigs are those who have a large following online (inflencers/it girls) and those are listed as talent, not as main models.

Your experience as a model =/= other models. Dakota was hired because she was an internet sensation, she already was someone, it wasn't the typical girl who sent her photos to her agency and worked hard to become a good model, she was already popular, it's a waste of time to ask why? Why Dakota if there're more beautiful models? it just happened and still happens, many successful models aren't pretty or special AT ALL (imo), but they are there…

Of course, is up to you if you want to push the other theory, I prefer to be skeptical.

No. 260429

You're missing the point. Dakota WAS someone. She's a nobody now, she's been exposed even by the Japanese. Hence, Bravo doesn't have any reasons to keep her when she's abandoned herself and her popularity died long time ago. She doesn't produce good quality content.

No. 260432

her experience is reflective of the industry and how they treat their models tho. yes dakota was hired under different circumstances but these are still the same people who want the same things from any model, at the end of the day. i don't think anyone is going to believe that the industry would make an exception for a haggard fattie who lies about her measurements and face.

You're very right, employing models wih great social media following is extra advertising and publicity for whoever they're modelling for.

In a way, Dakooter did pioneer in using social media to get ahead in another career path but she didn't keep up with it. Taylor took an established career and changed it to what she does now. Whereas I know many will disgaree, I do think Taylor does work on her channel and her trying out new things shows an active interest in envolving herself within the platforms she uses.

Even if Dakooter would revert to what made her popular back in 2012, she would never reach the same level of popularity. Dakooter, much like her sister, is stuck in her era of popularity. Whereas I have no sympathy towards Kiki and limited sympathy towards Kooter, I will say Kooter did work a lot harder then her sister.

it's still so funny how taylor copied dakota in her prime. then grew into her own thing. then dakota started copying taylor.

No. 260460

No agency on earth is gonna keep a model for 5 years because she had 1 year of internet fame. Especially when she looks nothing like the pics that got her famous, she gained 15+ pounds, is losing hair and aging like milk, is rude and lazy and introverted. Saying she's still there because she was a Tumblr sensation or a YouTube viral sensation doesn't explain anything, because she hasn't been either of those things for 3-4 years now. She should have been dropped by now.

Anon get your head out of your ass, it's been explained before, read the goddamn thread.

Taylor has a wealthier fam, she's a legit model and was modeling well before Kota, she's way more professionnal (works out, know how to properly model) when Dakota just recently learned how to smile in shoots and can't even walk a catwalk properly. She's at least thin a head full of hair, and puts out much more videos and has more views than Kota.

How tf do you compare a legit model who's way more determined and a chubby talent with a nasty personnality ?

At least Taylor is a real youtuber and gets views. Plus her following is real, unlike Kota's and she makes decent content. I can see Taylor as a 'tarento', it's a pity she doesn't speak Japanese because I'm sure she would get t.v gigs.

At least Kiki doesnt shoop as much, I'll give her credit for that. I kinda wonder if Kota has body dysmorphia, which would mean modeling isn't going to help her mindset. I guess shes in too deep now

She barely works because she doesn't have to - she has a rich boyfriend that pays for everything. I'm sure her agency knows this and that she doesn't need the money so they're just kind of enough to keep her visa going and throw a befitting job here and there for her. Taylor by far the worst example to use for model's lifestyle in Japan, most girls have to work every damn day, she doesn't have to since she got her HK bf's money.

No. 260718

Someone sounds super salty that they don't have a rich HK boyfriend.
But I agree the agency not having to pay for anything for Taylor is probably the biggest reason that they keep her. After that it is her social media presence, which gives the agency free exposure and which they get a cut of her youtube money and jobs that she does.
Without money or youtube/insta/etc she wouldn't still be signed, I think.

No. 260756

One anon commented about how agencies loan money on models and how it puts them in debt more then they even earn.

Is Dakota severely in debt to Bravo then ?? I highly doubt Hiroshi is paying for her apartment while also risking his reputation to keep her signed. It doesn't seem impossible that he'd just get her a signed loan under the agency rather then pay out of pocket for it. In my honest opinion she's to plain and frankly ugly to be that spoiled for a sugar baby/prostitute …. He's probably only helping her stay in the agency and nothing else really.


Taylor's agency not to long ago featured her on their insta, so I'd say not having to loan to Taylor plus gaining some recognition from her social media is why they keep her. Plus she actually looks like her pictures and has a good modelling portfolio with a wide range of variety. Kota doesn't have variety nor does she look like her pictures as well as probably cost the company more then they make off of her.

I suppose this could be true to some extent, but fashion is probably one of the only industries in Japan in which there are more women, who make a majority of the decisions concerning casting, so I'm not sure that the fuck-your-way-to-the-top method would really work. But it should be accepted that as a foreign model you mostly likely won't be getting many high fashion jobs as most of them are either given to Japanese girls or to models that they specifically fly in for a shoot or event.

It depends purely on the agency and the model. But Japan is fairly strict about visas, so I would imagine they aren't very long. The question is whether they'll agree to renew it.

No. 260822

Fucking your way to the top works in any language as long as the one on top wants to fuck you. Dakota didn't speak Japanese when she got there, and she didn't start using it publicly herself until 3 years later. She learned it via immersion and the fact that Hiroshi is a native speaker and fluent in English. Her intonation and flow are incredible, but her grammar and keigo have gaping holes in them. So, she had a lot of speaking/listening practice but probably only about the same stuff over and over like small talk or things related to her jobs. It makes more sense that Hiroshi has been supporting her for the last ~3 years as well as helping her with Japanese. Nobody else gets that much help and handouts fresh off the plane, especially after giving up on themself, their reputation, and their own website/social media. Dakota fucking Hiroshi is the only plausible way she is still in Japan and still with Bravo. If her situation were all about her being the Real Barbie makeup guru, then why hasn't anyone else reached out to support her? Throw her some decent jobs so she can feel like she's sticking it to all the ugly fat pedo lesbians again? Why didn't her friend with the clothing line use her as a model? She even bought one of the dresses. Why hasn't she had a role in a movie/drama yet? She was doing all those movie release press events for a while. Where's her clothing line? Her Dakota Rose makeup palettes? All the things she should be able to do if the Japanese love her sooo much just for being white and speaking Japanese?

>How Long Do Modeling Contracts Last?
>That depends on the type of contract, but usually it’s anywhere from one to three years. It’s also important to note that contracts don’t magically end on their expiry date. Usually, they automatically renew unless you provide the agency with the proper termination notice (usually 30 - 60 days written notice).

Forgot to add, that's only if you want to finish your contract. They can fire you too. Especially if you give bad reputation to the agency due to your behaviour.

Lol no, your contract doesn't automatically renew. The company decides if they want to renew your contract and you sign a new one if they do. It's not something you can just sit on until you fuck up enough that they decide to fire you. Modeling is way too high demand for that retail-tier shit.

No. 260835

By automatically renew it means they want to keep you. Unless you present the termination, you can't finish the contract. Other thing is if they stop liking you and tell you it's over. If you are a model and they want to keep you, and you want to continue there, it's why they say automatically.

No. 260865

>It makes more sense that Hiroshi has been supporting her for the last ~3 years as well as helping her with Japanese.
I've sort of suspected this as well for a long time. Based on your post I put together a timeline of how I think that Dakota's relationship with Bravo might
have progressed. Sorry for the length.

>April-October 2012- Dakota arrives in Japan. She is signed to a standard short her term contract.Bravo has already set up a crapload of work for her based on her shooped image including fake Polaroids. Then the big reveal. No matter they just send her to Korea and HK to see if she catches on there. She doesn't. Work dries up and they change her status to special request only.

>Roughly Nov 2012-April 2013- Dakota is getting no work. She spends time with her friend in Mie. She shoops like crazy and makes videos.
>March 2013-March 2014 Dakota suddenly returns to Bravo's site but now as a direct booking. They start rebuilding her career from the ground up and heavily pushing her brand as the super nihongo fluent Real Barbie.A lot of work and money is put into promoting this ideal. Most of her clients start shooping her face to try to match her own photoshops. Highly unusual. It's obvious that she is being given special treatment. Her Japanese slowly starts to improve. Her accent and intonation especially, indicating that she is spending a lot of time with a native speaker. She keeps getting work and clients keep shooping how she wants with a couple notable exceptions. All of this effort culminates in her getting hired by Candydoll. She uses Tsubasa (probably the most famous Popteen graduate) to get her into Popteen and Cutie.
>2014~now From there on, her career kind of builds itself and what we're seeing now is a combination of the dregs of that success and whatever Bravo can rustle up for her. At the moment her career is stalled because she's made herself pretty difficult to work with between the weight gain and attitude. But she is being kept.

tl;dr- Hiroshi spent way too much time and effort trying to make Dakota a success after her initial buzz wore off. Agents and agencies don't usually do this unless they think there will be a big payoff. Dakota didn't deliver.

No. 260902

Yeah, between 2012 and 2013 is when she would have needed to take off in Japan to keep a deal like this for so long if she's not married to or at least having sex with her manager. The only thing that doesn't add up is that Dakota would have been too young to marry in Japan, right?

No. 260907


Didn't Venus marry under the age as long as a parent was there to consent to it ? Or is that only if you're a year under the age.. ?

I always do wonder why she wears a ring ( albeit not on the right finger ) Just a plain little ring that she always wears, and has for the past .. however long ?

No. 260937

I didn't say anything about Dakota specifically, I was responding to a comment that suggested foreign models are all prostitutes.
And while I do think that Dakota is probably fucking Hiroshi, I wouldn't call that fucking your way to the top because at the moment she's scraping rock bottom. It's pure desperation and it's also career sabotage.
I guess my original point was that, although there are some situations like Dakota's, the majority of foreign models can't or won't fuck people to get legitimate modeling jobs because it doesn't work. Maybe to cling to a visa like a million other foreign women in Japan, but not actual bookings.

No. 260956

>indicating that she is spending a lot of time with a native speaker
This is a really good point actually. She seems to always keep to herself and barely has any friends. Compared to Taylor's Japanese, her's is way ahead. And it makes no sense. There has to be some secret somebody with her. Whether it's Hiroshi or she married someone. She doesn't seem like someone who would put a lot of effort into anything (as we already know) let alone learning a new language.

This is the biggest reason I do not believe she's a sugarbaby or whatever. She has many ways of making money if she were really that bottom pit desperate and needed something other than modeling to fall back on. Before she actually became a model she was making bank off her blog and youtube. After she became a model the activity was much less frequent until she unofficially stopped entirely 2 years ago. but i remember back in the day people used to calculate how much she was making, and it was enough to live off.

she could continue to just make robotic hair tutorials she finds on japanese magazines with video game music in the background… the whole reason she was so popular on youtube was because of the AE after all, no one gave a fuck about the tutorials.

Or she could be like Venus and start making click-bait content like "how i learned japanese", "my shoe collection", "tour of my room" etc people would fucking eat that up. she could easily become more youtube successful than Venus.

No. 261244

Just because she has "potential to earn money" doesn't mean she isn't a sugar baby. Nothing she is currently doing is enough to to support her or justify an entertainment visa. Even if it was, she shouldn't still be with Bravo after ~2 years of bad shoops, D-lsit jobs and agin 5 years and gaining 5kg. The fact that she isn't using her YT, her website, or making videos yet is still signed, still in her apartment and still in Japan without doing any of those things kind of debunks your "she's not a SB because she could X/Y/Z" theory. Especially considering how she currently looks.

No. 261248

>She could easily become more YouTube successful than Venus

Lol, no, she couldn't. It took her a month to wit her last IG video and it still looked like a dumpster fire. She chopped off half her jaw, stretched her legs to oblivion and shrank her head voodoo style, and the entire video was only a minute and a half long. Even if she was willing to make longer videos and upload regularly, her current shoop style is ugly and her sense of fashion is middle aged substitute teacher mixed with whatever Taylor is trying to pull off. Venus and Taylor get views because they upload regularly and don't have to hide their faces under a fuckload of AE and clever lighting/angles or talk through clenched teeth.

No. 261249


I personally feel she isn't a sugar baby either. She doesn't have anything to show for it besides an apartment, which if you ask me I wouldn't put it past Hiroshi to bill that to the company rather then pay out of pocket for it. Kota isn't pretty enough for a talent agent to cater completely too as he sees a constant flow of desperate prettier girls trying to get in the agency.

I think its perhaps just a simple trade off of sexual favours for a contract and paid for apartment. I bet you any money though that she probably has a large owing sum to pay back to Bravo ( Maybe Hiroshi loaned too much and now he only keeps her to earn it back )

Did you miss the part where we agreed that her shooping is part of the thing stopping her and that if she just filmed herself normally she would get enough views just for being a model in japan irregardless of her actual looks?

>I think its perhaps just a simple trade off of sexual favours for a contract and paid for apartment.

That's exactly what a sugar baby is. As for her apartment, she sure isn't the one paying for it. Trading sex for a place to life is also what sugar babies do, even if they work on the side legitimately and just want a nicer place to live than they can afford. Not all SBs want to be fully supported 24/7, sometimes it's just for extras like nice things, trips abroad, paying for college or to pay off debts like student loans.

>I wouldn't put it past Hiroshi to bill that to the company rather then pay out of pocket for it.

Yeah, I'm sure the agency would just look the other way and whistle Dixie while he bills an apartment to his employer. Maybe if he were the one living there, which would explain it being 2 bedrooms and would mean Dakota lives with him, at least part time. That explains her natural sounding conversational Japanese skills. If she had had a tutor or taken classes, her grammar would be a lot better.

>Maybe Hiroshi loaned too much and now he only keeps her to earn it back

Except keeping her there would continue to cost them money. If she were in debt to them they would fire her and she would still owe them for any money lost supporting her for the last 3 years.

You don't know that. do you know how much her latest gig paid her? how much her rent costs, or what her grocery bill is? do you know how much yen she's getting per month? You're the one with the X/Y/Z theories but no valid proof for anything you say.

Lol wow, someone is personally offended

No. 261275

as someone also in the asian modelling industry, I can tell you guys that she is no way poor or broke. She's basically moved up to a tier that most model nowadays wishes they were at.

Print ad is chump change and you are basically paid minimum wage, while runway work is a lot of effort for the amount of pay.

The most lucrative line of work for us is appearances through/from brand sponsorship. Working with well-established brands like Shiseido is really tough, while the pay-off is enormous, you are under a lot of scrutiny in terms of image and job restrictions. However, middle-level sponsorships, like the ones that she's under, are easy, short-termed, with reasonable limitations and hefty pay-offs.

Many of us consider her very fortunate, because at the time she got into the business, instagram wasn't as big as it is now, and the "online personalities" boom had just started and agencies here were advise they need to grab as many as possible while their fees were still cheap and lock them in.

No. 261287

>you're aware that she has the potential to be financially independent, but.. what?

The fact that she's doing none of those things that you claim could "earn her so much money", which was your "proof" se isn't sugaring.

And no, I don't know how much she makes and I don't know how much she spends on food. Probably not much, considering she says she hardly eats and only posts pics of junk food or nice restaurant food. Her apartment, based on how big it is and the fact that it's in Shibuya proper means it's upward of $2K a month easy. As for how much work she gets/how much she makes, if a fat, balding slob like Dakota, who is antisocial and rude, can pull enough money and work to keep her contract for 5 years, her apartment (that she claims she lives alone in) for 3 and still have enough to live on- then why aren't other, prettier girls doing it? Dakota is the outlier, she black sheep at Bravo. Find another A list international agency that lies, edits, and censors a model's work for her while she gains weight, ignores everyone and refuses to wear makeup or dress nicely. Good luck.

The real world doesn't work that way. Real modeling agencies aren't that lenient. They aren't that generous either. And they sure as hell aren't so hard up for white girls with a gimmick that they're scared of losing her.

Honestly I don't care either way, but the fact that Dakota made her career and got to Japan by lying, taking shortcuts, deleting fucking everything and doing the least amount of actual work possible (since she did it all with PS/AE) is what makes it so much more believable that she's sugaring to stay in Japan and live her pretend dream life. Neither her nor Kiki have ever put in actual work or effort for anything the claim they want, they just had their parents buy things for them, cover their asses and whore them out to every media outlet possible. Dakota isn't even willing to eat healthy, get some kind of treatment for that tragic hair loss or even replace her tired ass 4 year old shoes. That's why I honestly don't believe she's really still there because hard work or "earning potential". Which really, she doesn't even have anymore because most of her Japanese feedback is lukewarm at best.

No. 261298

She sure looks and acts broke. And I doubt any other models wish they were Dakota. See >>258019

Totarry enviable desho~~

And she doesn't do much runway work. Se does 1-2 a year maybe? And her apartment and living expenses, if she were payment by for them, would burn through that. She also takes taxis everywhere, which is expensive.

Plus, if the scrutiny is so tough and strict, why does none of it apply to Dakota? They lie about her weight, measurements, and made her direct booking to trick people into thinking she's some kawaii smol dolly and not some bloated has been.

And what sponsorships does she have? She lost Etude, Candydoll, Dollywink, Samsung, Popteen, and every other "mid level" sponsorship she had. All she's been doing are print ads and web commercials for the last year.

As for YouTube/Instagram fame, I doubt she's still there just because she was the first girl to get a deal based on her online following. Taylor makes money off of her YT, so does Venus, and so do a lot of other pretty, thin girls in Japan who may or may not speak Japanese.

Sage for repetitive BS. Dakota still being signed/in her apartment VS. how she looks and the jobs she gets doesn't add up. Something stinks and I'm sure it's not just her greasy hair.

I think you've misunderstood some of the things I brought up. My point is that in Asia, being a C-list model is sometimes much easier and better than becoming "successful".

She isn't under a lot of scrutiny because she ISN'T an A-list model. She gets away with photoshopping because she ISN'T an A-list model.

Btw, Agency ALWAYS lies on publicly-listed profiles, it's common practice. I myself is listed at 181cm 47kg when I'm 175 and 50kg, and I didn't fudge those numbers myself. It's kinda seen as "I COULD be 180, if I were in heels, and I could be 47kg, if you gave me 10 days to go on a diet"

She also didn't lose the sponsorships, contracts end after 6-14 months, which is why they are called mid-level sponsorships. Trends in Asia moves much quicker, fashion/retailer needs new faces each year so their terms are usually shorter than say in Europe or the US.

Also, taxi to and from jobs/agency/salons are 100% compensated, although usually we must arrive at the job site via company car. A perk of working in Asia.

No. 261313

If she's a C-list model why is she signed to an A-list agency? That's the issue. She's the only C-lister in their lineup. And she's getting D-list work for a supposed C-lister. I'm sure lots of A-list models do envy how little she has to do to keep her spot at Bravo. But she sure isn't C-list anymore. She was wen she was on TV twice a month and booking BTSSB and with Popteen, but since those contracts 'ended' she hasn't picked up any more. Lotte Fitts? They didn't bother to shoop her or try to make her look good.

No. 261336

Firstly, Bravo isn't an A-list agency. While they are one of the first place many people look to for white models in editorials, they lack proper connections within Japan to be called a top agency.

Without going into too much, Dakota is also signed through a Japanese talent agency, which is actually giving her more work than Bravo is. That's why the bulk of her work now are more "talento" based.

I can see why many people think she's doing more terrible, because aesthetically editorial is a lot more glamorous, but trust me when I say that the lame and cheesy shoots that she does makes her a lot more money.

Ok, tell me more about the industry I'm actually in.

You know how she's under "special booking"?

Well Bravo nowadays actually functions more like an intermediary company, while they have a few notable models signed, most of their big names (usually under "special booking")are actually signed to other agencies, and Bravo simply handles their activities in Japan. Models shown on their websites are the ones they have contracted agreements with for work within Japan.

Visas are a huge issue in Japan, and a lot of Japanese agency don't have the legal team/knowledge to handle foreign talents, so they rely on agencies like Bravo and Free Wave to act as guarantors.

Honestly I hate that it sounds like I'm defending her, I'm not, but there's just a lot of misinformation here that muddles actual reasons to dislike her.

I've never met her, but all I can say is that except for her bf, she's as lonely as you guys think she is. Also from what I've heard, she's scared as fuck about Taylor.

No. 261380

Do you have mutual acquaintances/connections with her? I'm just super curious- not surprised she's scared of Taylor. Can you please go more into detail?

No. 261407


We run in different circles but you do hear things.

Modelling in Japan can be very lonely. I'm half so it's easier, but foreign models comes and goes, so sustaining long term friendships is hard.

I think she really tried hard to make only Japanese friends when she first got here, which is a rookie mistake. It's very hard to forge true friendship with a Japanese as a foreigner here.

Her reasons for being scared of Taylor is because Taylor is much better managed in terms of branding and expansion. Dakota blew up because she was the "first" of her kind, but also because of that they've made a lot of crucial mistakes(like signing popteen), while Taylor's management was able to observe and improve on.

But I can confirm anecdotally that most foreign models who decide to work AND live in Japan long-term do so because of their SO.

No. 261423

Did she give up on modeling and is only doing the bare minimum amount of work nowadays so she can stay in Japan with the SO? I wanted to see Dakota be successful in work so bad, such a let down that she's not trying.

Popteen and bravo maybe have a really close business relationship with each other that goes back years ago idk.

Is Vivienne Westwood even expensive though ?
( I don't wear or buy Japanese brands )


Could explain why she speaks "manly"-esq slang, because its all she's been around. Maybe she's one of those girls who are " I only have guy friends because girls are too bitchy" type of people. All in all it doesn't explain why a company would throw money into a pit hole to keep her.

No. 261617

Bit OT but I have a strange feeling that Bravo used to insinuate that she was hafu because it seems like a lot of Japanese used to think so. I know Dakota actually used to push that narrative herself and during 2012-2014 all of her shoops had that look (blurred rounded nose bridge, stretched eyes and a psuedo inner epicanthic fold, rounded features etc). I feel like they promoted her as hafu because I can't understand how anyone looking at her could make that mistake. She is aggressively white.

Until model-chan comes back and give specifics, I'll remain skeptical. Of course Dakota is threatened by Taylor.You don't have be in the industry to know that. Although come to think of it, why would have model anon know it? It seems weird that Koots is just blabbing about her insecurities and that model-chan just happened to hear about it.
On a side note, I'm pretty convinced that Koots was in on the Kiki-spergathon even if she wasn't an active participant.

I'm getting hues of shadiness coming from ModelAnon. I don't know what to believe as some of what they say sounds fairly believable while other things just really don't add up. How would they know anything ? Dakota doesn't talk to anyone or really leave the apartment all that much.

Maybe model anon is that model from pictures with Dakota ? The one that agreed to post an edited version of Dakota and her on IG. ( Lia_JP / though she's 100% Korean and not hafu )

There really is a lot that isn't adding up. First of all, this talent agency is nowhere to be found. Fellow moon-capable anons, is you feel like searching go ahead. I just searched through a whole bunch of of garbage "real barbie" articles full of old shoops (btw does Bravo pay people to still write this shit because it like 2012 all over again)and came up with nothing. Whereas, I can find the talent agencies of just about every other talent.

I know this has probably been said before but I don't keep up to date with this thread and I can't be fucked to read through them all.

BUT, Dakota isn't ugly or busted or fat. She's just painfully average. Obviously FOR A MODEL, she's on the chubby side, but in reality she's average size (or even smaller) for an American girl.

If she just took better care of herself by changing up her diet and exercising then she'd probably look so much prettier.

No. 262091


I would still call her fat just because she looks fat. Idc if she's ~technialy average~, she looks flabby af and I can tell she doesn't exercise. She gains weight in her middle and doesn't have much hips or tits, which is unfortunate and I get that she can't do much about it, but if you have all the factors for looks fatter than you actually are, you have to put in more effort than other girls who can look thin with more weight on them because they store it differently.

Anyhow, her weight is neither here nor there IMO. Its more her lack of personal care, shitty shoops and snotty personality that make her a snowflake. Since I'm sure shes not the first model who got famous despite lack of skill and she won't be the last.

No. 262237

Just because anons call Dakota fat doesn't make them anorexic. She does look fat because she's a dumpy mess from not taking care of herself. At her height (5"3) and current weight, she's fat. She was average when she first got to Japan, not super skinny, just average. Then she gained 15 pounds (that we know of, could be more). Also fat =/= obese, her being ~smol~ doesn't buy her more skinny points just because most fatties are tall or much fatter.

Sorry if it triggers you stan, but that doesn't make t anymore less true just because she's been able to get everyone to lie about her gaining 15 pounds.

Why did the thread suddenly fill up with a large amount of simply-written posts praising Dakota's appearance, right after this investigative post? Some examples linked in this post (also what caused me to notice.)
It's an interesting change in pattern. Especially since everyone just saw her latest work, and it's some of her least impressive, ever, unfortunately. Farmers critiqued and criticized it, and while the reaction was not positive, it's accurate.

My personal theory is Kiki got a new VPN/changed settings on her current one and is on a rampage again. Maybe she is even hafu model chan, trying to plant theories that would cause farmers to view Dakota in a more sympathetic or positive light. Farmers scrutinize, so they will notice a similar pattern of grammatical errors in posts when all of these express a similar sentiment. (Is proofreading that difficult?) Like okay Koots, lots of people really want your career to work out too, but girl, you need to get it together. Just like Donald Trump cannot, in reality, "make America great again" by straight-up lying, Kiki cannot "make Dakota great again" by shitposting.

Just go to the gym a few times a week, decrease your carb intake, and everyone would shut the fuck up about your jello body. Kiki, seek therapy.

Being a fat/extremely average commercial model doesn't matter, but Bravo doesn't have a commercial model division, they only have high fashion models. When they scout a girl they think about if they can use her for commercial, catalogue and runway. If the girl doesn't fit in one of these categories (usually runway due to height) they won't hire her. If she's incredibly beautiful and is at least 168 they'll hire her and say she's 170. The 168 girls that are in the website are 165 irl but they're pretty and can bring money to the agency (and I can totally see them doing shoots for high end brands, look at those faces). They were fooled by Dakota (shooped polaroids) and they're stuck with a girl that doesn't look like her photos and doesn't take care of her. So yes, for a high fashion model in a high fashion agency, she's fat. As I said, she can gain weight and not worry about her job, the others are constantly worried about gaining a single kg. She's been there for 5 years, she has to renew her contract next year unless they put her on an exclusive and for life contract which I doubt. Or maybe the contract is for 5-7 years. My advice is lose weight and take care of yourself, Dakota, because once it's over you'll be back to Kiki's side. If you want to live there you should work hard. And as for her flat and expenses, if her parents aren't paying for it and Bravo is paying, she's going to drown in debt.

No. 262586


It's hilarious how angry you get over Dakota being fat. She looks fat, lies about her measurements and only wears baggy clothes to hide her gut and thunder thighs. Not to mention her saddle bags and bingo wings, her saggy jowls and her caveman forehead. She looks like a fat slob. Crying whenever someone calls her fat isn't going to change that she looks like a washed up fat hag. She honestly does look like she pushed out a couple kids and hasn't had a full nights' sleep in weeks.

I don't trust halfu model-chan. She says that the reason Dakota can stay in Japan is because she gets high brand name jobs, not print ad jobs. Even if this were the case, with the amount of jobs that she gets, it would not be enough to sustain her. Even if something like the Fit's job paid her $10,000, she doesn't get enough of these jobs.

Life in Tokyo is expensive. Having a 2LDR in Shibuya is extremely expensive. I highly doubt that she makes enough to sustain herself. It's likely that Bravo or manager-san are chipping in, which is NOT the usual case for a model.

Most models are thrown into small, shared apartments. They are genuinely disposable, especially to an agency like Bravo, and their contracts only last a few months to MAYBE a year. There are hundreds of other skinny white girls clambering for their time in the spotlight, so if you gain a few cm in your waist they'll find someone else who can maintain it. There is absolutely NO excuse to gain that much weight as a model. Anyone else would be dropped insanely quick.

Other models are also usually very invested in getting hair sets, nails done, new bags, shoes, etc. I'm not sure if it's just because she's depressed and doesn't give a fuck, but it could also just be that she's broke as fuck.

It's just weird. And no, I can't find her listed under any talent agency. Why would they go through another talent agency when she already has connections to Tsubasa and the Popteen team through Bravo? Makes no sense. She is definitely being kept. This is not normal.

Yeah nothing came up for me either and tried a number of combos;ダコタローズ+事務所(agency)、タレント(talent)、芸能社(talent agency). Nothing but Bravo came up.
But honestly, I think the fact that she gained so much weight should be an indicator that she isn't signed with a Japanese agency because I have a hard time believing that they would be ok with that. Even if they didn't drop her, wouldn't they at least pressure her to lose weight and be more presentable? Unless of course this "talent agency" is a shitty gaijin farm full of "charisma" guys named Todd. The maybe it would be believable.

She's white, not eastern Asian so she will never have their frame or height. If Dakota was to weigh the same as those Japanese models she would look emaciated, just like Taylor does. Ofcourse an American/European woman will be taller and have a larger frame, that doesn't mean she is fat ana-chans.

No. 262713

First of all Taylor doesn't look emaciated at all. And why bring her up??
Secondly, Koots, actually is about their average heights. And for a western girl she has a petite bone structure. You can tell from her wrists. It's the reason that she didn't end up sized out of Popteen earlier. It's the reason she could model for Tiara Miley (despite having a gut). If she was average framed, she'd be around 130-135 instead of 120-125. Her hips would have been around 37-38inches which would knock her out of most gyaru style fashion.

She isn't a tarento. For one, she has written "model" in every single social media bio of hers. Other than the few TV shows that she was on a few years ago, when has she recently done tarento work? You are still a model even if you are appearing in videos or are making media appearances. It doesn't just mean print ads and runway.

They tried hard to make her a "gimmick" tarento with the whole catchphrase thing a while back, but she completely failed due to her rude personality.

Kind of a rough way of saying "what the hell!" or "no freaking way." It was her usual answer to "have you had plastic surgery?"

She hasn't been on TV programs for a while, though. This screencap was from June 2015, and the singing competition was shortly after that. I don't think she was ever booked for any variety programs after that, because a lot of people on Twitter were complaining about how rude she was. She can't really be considered a "tarento" in 2017 with her recent body of work. Hell, the "model" label barely still applies with how few jobs she gets.

Who is she? Her waist is amazing

No. 262889

Dakota IS short. 1.62 or 1.63 are pretty accurate imo. That's not a lie.

>They don't say her weight

That's not necessary and it's not a rule. They have photos to judge that.

And even if they were lying, that's not Dakota's fault. So you giving her shit for something she doesn't even posted or said is stupid.

No. 262893

Who is "they"? Her agency doesn't. Her social media bios don't. You realize anyone can edit Wikipedia articles, right? Even if it wasn't her, you can also see right there that her measurements were taken in 2015. It's outdated.

The Fit's campaign is still modeling. Just because it's a commercial doesn't mean she's a tarento. She also hasn't been interviewed or really had news coverage at all, like normal tarento would get.

It hasn't just been a week, either. She's been off television shows for almost two years now.

Always comparing myself and my agency with Kota's? When did I? I've never compared myself with Kota and never compared my agency with Bravo. I only talked about how agencies take care of your expenses and that she has a special treatment while being the huge walking lie she is.

ok but she isn't that thin yet still gets jobs and apparently is doing well. so what is the sense in arguing whether she is "fat for a model" or even fat at all? point is she isn't "chubby" enough to not get any work and still will continue to do so. sorry everyone but she has another 20lbs to go to get out of work and that'll take another few years. we are sitting here bickering about how fat she is but the industry she's in doesn't seem to give a flying fuck so what's the sense

I just thought of something -
if you consider what a massive hypocrite kiki is and all the slip ups she has made, then remember how obsessed she was with insisting that Taylor is only getting work in Japan because her father pays for it…

eh you know just an idea man

No. 263038

I think she hates herself. Shame because she could be really pretty if she took care of her appearance. Maybe that's why her looks are going worse over time.

(blog) I have a cousin that's blonde, blue-eyed, thin and very pretty, and her familly always said she was going to be a famous model and get them out of poverty. (blog)

I think thats what happened to Kota and she feels like a failure, she is a really sad girl ans she probably thought she only had cuteness as a good point but is now sorrounded by girls that are so much more thin and cute than her.

She looks like she wants to cry in >>261691 and >>259625

Look I understand where you're coming from but she's made her own bed. She made it when she shooped everything even Polaroids. She made it when she used to copyright everything remotely negative under the sun. She made it when she wasn't able to rein in her boredom and attitude on TV. Basically, Koots jack-hammered her way into a career she simply wasn't suited for and it's worked for the most part.
She was handed every opportunity on on silver platter. I haven't seen that kind of pimping of a gaijin since Leah Dizon (who at least had the looks to back it up).
I haven't seen anything from her yet that suggests that she has changed for the better. Her most recent reply to a comment I saw was self important, vaguely condescending, and an outright lie.

then you must be new, because the BMI thing took over last thread for awhile. and people have been nitpicking about how exactly fat she is for awhile.

my point is that you can't say "dakota is thin she's a normal size for an average person". she's fat no matter how you spin it, because she's either fat in general or too fat to be a model. now calm the fuck down before you sperg any harder.

Are you being deliberately obtuse. We don't know if she affords her apartment herself. I kind of doubt it because a 2LDK in the middle of fucking Shibuya is probably not under 3000 dollars a month. And no I don't think that Dakota makes enough regularly to afford that.
No. That was Dakota in all of her obnoxious glory. I'll see if I can find the video.

No. 263295

I wonder if the apartment is paid up front by her modelling agencies and therefore is part of the debt she owes to them. This is how other agencies work.

No. 263299

Usually, yeah. But I just can't see Bravo or anyone else telling her to give that low of a score, ya know? It completely ruined her chances of being a regular on variety shows. It never would have been presented as "quirky" or "cute" to give him such a low score, it's just straight-up rude. Especially in Japan.

True, but most models are thrown into cheap, shared houses that don't cost the agency much to maintain. Kooter lives in a 2LDR in the middle of Shibuya, supposedly by herself. That would be costing them thousands a month just for one model. One that's not even really getting much work, for that matter. If she were Rola or something, I could see it. As it is, though, it just doesn't add up.

No. 263312

Anon, they're hiked up because it only fits at her waist. Her hips are too wide due to her weight gain. You see how in >>262665, it's showing her stomach pouch. She wouldn't be able to get it any lower than that.

No. 263323

Yeah it was a special moment.I can't find the video anymore but what she said when asked about the score was paraphrased in kind nasty fake saccharine tone.

She heavily implied in her tour video that it was all hers. She says that it's hard for her to rent anywhere because most landloards don't like renting to *~*~celebrities~*~* or something along those lines. It does seem completely ridiculous to think she'd get such a huge space and live alone there.

No. 263356

Yeah anything that comes out of koots mouth is bs. She could've a roomie and just film when her roomie is not there.

No. 263357

No im not trying to be obtuse. I just think the reality might be she does well despite that she doesn't look like her photos. Maybe she has gained weight because she is secure and knows she will get work anyway. She seems very lazy about her entire image, physically and on the internet. Maybe she only does work when she needs to. Though I wouldn't be surprised if she had someone paying for her and feeding her cash too, there's that option too

This spare room just looks like she plastered self shrines on the window to give the illusion she's there on her own. I wouldn't be surprised if she befriended/bestied a more top tier model who travels abroad a lot.

Maybe Bravo is okay with covering the rent since a higher ranked model lives there ? I could see them doing that for a successful model.

Also, I think Dakota avoids female friendships (especially western) because she is afraid that someone may spill tea about her personal life somewhere, just like Charms did once. I think she is not interested at all about making friends because of that.

I think it's the weight gain and being malnourished. Taylor for example I would wager eats far more fibre, vitamins and protein, and keeps anaemia at bay. Kooter lives off carbs and cheap shit. It shows. You don't put vegetable oil in a benz and expect it to run great, but like a moron she does when her face and body are supposed to be her moneymakers.

If it were a choker it would be tighter and higher up on her neck. It's a leather collar, salty.

It has to be a joke, 30.5 BMI would make her about 80kg/175pounds. She's realistically probably 50-60kg.

Lol, guess they can't bill her as the "Real Barbie" when she looks like that. Trying to pass her off as a model is pretty kekworthy though. That really kills all the stans' arguments that she's still there because of her 2012 shoops and her ~long lasting efame~.

Absolutely.

I went back in the catalog and found the cap of the tweet she made, since it's been deleted. She did say she had a degree in sound engineering, but that has to be bullshit. Her and Kiki went to Valencia college before she went viral but a degree in sound engineering takes 2 years and you have to be 16 to enroll. Valencia does offer one-off technical courses in sound and music production, but the age limit would still apply. Either she's lying about her age or she's lying about having the degree.

I know Kaka has the degree. Pic related.
Whether Tooters didn't actually do it with her and just lied and said she did, or she did do it and she's older than she says, I don't know.
I don't ever remember Kota showing hers off though. But then again, she's not as much of a humblebrag as Kirsten.

Why are you so angry?
In that pic from when she started at Popteen she was barely still pulling off the cutesy look. She needed to be perfectly lit to offset her harsh bone structure. The same with Kiki. Both of the Ostrengas peaked in their mid teens and are aging like milk.
It's not that uncommon for that to happen. You see it with a lot of models where, their strong bone structure is still delicate enough in their teens, but when they hit their 20's it becomes sharper and more masculine. That's what's happened to both Kiki and Koots. She could still look good if she wanted to, but the kawaii look doesn't suit her anymore. She could make a decent go at the insta-ho look which favors strong bone structure and a lot of make-up (which Koot's face can handle).

Wrong. She never took off in the west because she completely refused to acknowledge anything that wasn't east asian. I know that places like latin America lost their fucking brains over her. you wouldn't believe just how many TV news, front page magazines, and official online websites covered her. The middle east also paid immense attention to her during her 15 minutes in 2012. Hoards of Russians sites too, in fact it was the Russian "insekts" that told Valeria about Dakota, and caused Valeria to start dressing up as a "living doll" because they taunted her that Dakota was more beautiful than her (pic related). And her photo from this article was once the top page story on the Daily Mail.


she had to FORCE Asia to notice her. one of her first ever videos had korean subtitles. then she made a weibo and promised to learn chinese, then she started making her popular videos with japanese subtitles. I really think at the height of her popularity she could have chosen any country, done videos in their language, and have probably nabbed a modeling contract in there. She was able to hand-pick Japan because it was her prime choice.

I honestly believe some of you guys are just unknowingly fooled by her old shoops and actually think she used to be prettier back then. when in fact she's always had the same meaty face and laugh lines. we're just seeing it in their full glory now that we're getting more candids and videos than back then.

No. 264482

This picture actually proves my point. Her face here is softer and her features more delicate. This was her peak facially. Her harsh cheekbones were offset by baby-fat. Her laugh-lines have always been prominent but when her face was softer they didn't look as harsh. Her jaw and chin were also less prominent and masculine.

Maybe her masseter muscles got bigger from all the shiitake mushroom sampling she's been doing over the years.

i actually remember both of them going around calling themselves "audio/sound engineers" as if it was their profession. I know dakota did it on her old formspring. that's one of the reasons I used to think she was much older, because she made herself seem like she had a professional job.

yet what did they even do with it? kiki failed multiple times at selling her ripoff music on iTunes, there are still some hilariously bad reviews if you look up Kiki Mimuex over there. and the kickstarter back when dakota had already gone viral but not yet realized she could cash in on modeling, and they both planned on wasting $20k just to drive around the country.

No. 265405

I thin yet might have both taken multiple courses. Dakota's 2011-2012 shoops could have been practice for one of the photo/video editing classes that teach PS/AE and how to edit videos using professional software and equipment. It would explain how they got all that shit in the first place- if you need equipment for school you can get it covered by a grant. But yeah, they didn't do much with sound or music once Dakota made a Tumblr and started shoopin'. She always claimed she had no plans for going viral or gettin noticed with her pics, and that she only uploaded them to Tumblr as a hobby. Maybe she was shopping her selfies for an editing class and put them online just to have somewhere to store the finished pics.

No. 266503

Damn, the least they could've done was put a little eyeliner on the poor girl. Her eyes look as bald as her scalp.

No. 266550

Well technically they do, but it just doesn't have to be big size like Kim K and Nicki Minaj. And a lot of men (regardless of country) who claim to like 'curvy' still prefer women to have a small waist (a wasp shape), so gaining weight and having bigger boobs/hips/ass doesn't really help if you also gain a bigger waist. As for Dakota, she's still a model, so it makes sense she has to stay skinny for modeling. I don't think that has anything to do with what men prefer. But anyway, imo what modeling agencies prefer, and what men prefer, have equally harsh standards either way.

I'll leave this here.

Admittedly they were acting like cunts. I used to really like Micaela's videos but based on this and some other comments she's made she seems like she has a terrible personality. I'd actually have no idea who the fuck Mimei is if I didn't browse here. I honestly can't stand these people. They're all in competition to profit the most off of Wacky Japan!! and I think that's what I can't stand about them. I think they're salty that they're still shilling Youtube videos titled shit like "Trying Weird Japanese Snacks!" while Dakota has been able to make a living in Japan without having to commodify her mundane daily experience of buying onigiri from the famima to the weebs back home.

Taylor is the only bearable one of them all because she doesn't shit pettiness like this all over twitter. Can you imagine how the other jvloggers would've reacted if they'd been in Tay's position when kiki-is-spergchan-gate happened? They'd have a field day. They'd have squeezed at least three videos out of that.

That's a super vague income guesstimate, but even if she was reaching the median there it wouldn't be bad at all as a supplemental income. Really makes me wonder why she stopped making (good) videos.

She has the potential to be pretty, but in reality she's rather plain. if I knew nothing about her shoops or who she was, I would wonder what contest she won to be in this ad.

Japan isn't a nation of pedophiles. True, the focus there is on cute and youthful rather than sexy and sultry, but that doesn't mean all Japanese men prefer lolis and jailbait who pander to ephebophiles(?). According to Charms, before Dakota ever went viral or dressed kawaii, she told we she liked Asian guys, and preferred older men. Her going viral and Japan noticing her was her perfect chance to start pandering to that demographic- older Asian men who like young girls who act cutesy and shy. That doesn't mean she went viral in Japan because they all wanted to fuck an underaged white girl. She went viral because she tagged her videos and pics with the kind of shit those men already use to search for their fap material.

I think she realizes she peaked at 16 and unless she does actually start working to improve herself or do something for her future she's fucked. Unless she really is married to her manager and she thinks he'll keep her forever and not leave her for the next desperate underaged foreigner dying to be a sugar baby in Tokyo like he did for her.

She peaked in her teens, but that doesn't mean she was gorgeous or pretty. All it means is thats when she looked her best and now its going down hill. Whereas most are starting to peak now in their 20s.

Anons here aren't stupid, they know all her images were shooped, but at least back then she could actually pull off some of the cutesy shit. Now she just looks like a corpse that sat in water to long and is starting to lose hair and bloat.

i disagree. i still say she looked exactly the same irl, pic related on the left. If anything has made her go downhill it's growing out her bangs and putting less makeup (eyeliner, mascara etc) that's literally the only difference I see.

No. 269509

Man…this is awful. I think as she's maturing her chin and jowls are really filling out. Also, no eyemakeup means you focus on the bottom of her face.

She definitely needs different styling and layers to frame that jaw.

Even here, it seems like she suffers bloat on the regular, but her jaw isn't as insane as it is now. It makes sense if she's moving from her teens into her mid twenties (I don't care if she's 2 years older or younger) her face is chiseling out.

She really has too many harsh features to be a Japanese model and not enough strange or striking features to be a Western model. Not saying she's hideous, but the camera ain't kind to a judging audience with what she has to offer.

Her chin didn't look as prominent because she was 16-17 and wasn't finished growing into (or out of, depending on who you ask) her face. Losing weight won't make her jaw smaller, but it might help her look less doughy in the face.

Calm down, aspie. Her chin was never as small as her shoops and I never said it was. All I sad was that losing weight isn't going to make her chin shrink, because she's always had a meaty chin, and that her face looked smaller even without shoop then because she was still maturing facially (unless you're actually claiming people's faces don't grow/change from 16-21). I then said that losing weight would make her face look better. But she's never going to look as good without shoop as she did circa 2012 after her Japan debut when they were actually styling her and she was still thin and cared about herself.

I see you also think everyone looks the same at 21 as they do at 16 because what is puberty, amirite

I would, but I'm not a ~model~ and I don't lie about what I look like by changing my entire bone structure and outward appearance in photoshop.

Dakota looks like shit because she looks like shit. She does. Getting mad isn't going to change that. Nobody forced her to get fat, nobody forced her to stop wearing makeup and nobody forced her to let herself turn into a lazy, gross slob who can hardly get work without looking like a middle aged woman in her candids. She has no business being a model, she's a shitstain on Bravo's roster. You can't say every pic of her that she doesn't post herself is just "unfortunate angles" or "just not a very flattering pic" and then continue to insist she's a real, legitimate model. She only gets decent quality work when they can put her in a crowd in something baggy, andnwhen they do show her face it's shit like >>266714. It's sad when the legit Bravo-tier jobs she gets make her look like such shit, and you know they already tried to shoop her to look better. I'd hate to be whoever gets stuck with her as a model, I'd feel ripped off paying for that.

I don't know how to reference the comment I'm replying to. Anyway I'm not offended but it's just stupid of you to say that an edited 40 year old looks better than dakota . No 40 year old will look better than a 20 year old ever.

Also it's admirable ( sort of ) how she was able to pull off all of this with her lies . So what if she's chubby and shooped ? Any of you would accept if you had her opportunity. She wanted to be a model she is a model . In the end she got what she wanted. Everything is photoshopped these days so it really doesn't seem such a big deal .

Kinda sick of the "everybody photoshop in the model industry" comment. You know you need high res pics to print and those graphic designers probably don't have that much time on their hands to liquefy her whole face without it looking wonky AND still have a good enough picture to print ?

Plus it's easy to make someone appear relatively slimmer when they're already slim and the clothes look good on them. It's almost impossible to make a stuffed sausage looks good like she did on the Tiara Milly one.

They only make efforts for really famous people like Britney Spears cause they don't want to hurt her image. They don't give much crap about c-list models, their job is to make it look good without resorting to too much editing and waste people's time.

God, I loved these, they're hilarious. For god's sake, Kota herself could have done an 100 times better job at shooping that. The jagged white pixels on the edge of the pink dress though. Just awful!

I'm wondering, why did they even decide to shoop the dresses on her? Did they not have those outfits at the shoot and were just that lazy? It seems to me like shooping them on would take more time anyway though and not only that but it looks terrible.
Is it possible that Toots rocked up to the shoot and couldn't fit into any of their stuff because of her false measurements? It does kinda seem like they shot her in her underwear or a bikini or something. Super weird.

No. 271888

No this is when she was probably at her thinnest, late 2013 early 2014. she would have had no problem fitting this stuff. They managed to squeeze her into stuff even as late as late 2015. The thing about Koots is that she (and Kaka for that matter) naturally has a slight bone structure. It's why she looks so awful now even though, she's probably about 125 lbs max and its the reason that she was able to pour herself into gyaru-style clothing despite looking lumpy and chubby.

No. 271890

Adding that shitty shoop has to do with TMs low rent-ness. I think they were style to digitally change the color.

I just caught up on this thread and was going to throw this in there too…
I've been following them both online since I was like 14 and I'm the same age as Kiki, so it's been about a decade now, didn't keep up with anything until Dakota got famous on tumblr though.
She was always the chubby little sister and I do believe she eventually developed an eating disorder.
You have to be a very low weight to look small at her height and she obviously wasn't genetically predispositioned to be small like Kiki, so I assume she either starved or purged.
Both will age you quickly, it explains the jowls and harsh lines, and the fact that she gained so quickly.
