93.9% of Australians are deemed as being of either Anglo-Celt or other European descent. The next major racial group is Asian with 4.5%. The Aboriginal percent of the population is 1% whilst all other groups fall into the other o.6% (source: Australian Department of Immigration and Citizenship). This is compared to the U.S where the African population makes up 13.1%. Australia’s population therefore is predominantly white, and the line up of models in Australian Fashion Week reflects this. You should be more aghast at the lack of Asian models if anything. Also, you failed to point out that Samantha Harris, who is half Aboriginal, walked during Australian Fashion Week. She is also the face of Australian Indigenous Fashion Week.
Matt Smith was also in the Ruby in the Smoke miniseries with Billie Piper. No one seems to remember that.
On the other hand, who can forget that Dominic Monaghan was in Hetty Wainthrop? WhenIsee him in anything else I’m all “it’s the dude from Hetty Wainthrop!”
