*doesn’t do homework and hopes for the best*
Gemma Ward opening Prada Spring/Summer 2015
Rumors of Gemma Ward’s comeback have been swirling ever since she signed with IMG Australia in January of last year. Despite receiving a showcard for Australian fashion week that spring, the model was a no-show, and hopes of a return slowly died down again. However, no one could have predicted that the supermodel would obliterate expectations by showing up in Milan and opening Prada’s spring/summer 2015 show.
Vogue Australia spoke exclusively to the Gemma on the eve of her return to the spotlight on how it feels being back. “Very different,” she told Zara Wong.
This is the first time Gemma has been back on the runway since 2008, and her first modelling appearance since the birth of her daughter Naia this past December. She says motherhood has improved her confidence. “I do feel a lot more confident in myself as a mother,” she said. “I felt ready to explore working again, I felt this is still a delicate time in Naia’s life, she’s still young but I felt ready and the opportunity came at the right time.”
And don’t expect Gemma to shy away from the spotlight again. IMG tweeted, “Don’t call it a comeback @Gem_Ward is here to stay!”
The model says she is now open to all kinds of work in the future. “Yes. Overseas. Here. Both. All. Any option. I think I’ll take the opportunities as they come- just celebrate it.”

Pacific Rim, 2013
One of the greatest things about this quote (and this movie) is that it had all the potential in the world to spread the dark and terrible (and often truthful) idea that in order to fight the darkness, one must absorb some of that darkness. It was very prominent in The Dark Knight trilogy, especially as articulated by Harvey Dent: “You die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”
Pacific Rim doesn’t do this. Mankind bands together for a true world war. There are already enough monsters coming for them; they do not need to become monstrous themselves. The monsters they create are not beasts but guards and armor to protect, not universally destroy. The jaegers rarely deliberately destroy massive structures (remember Lady Danger carefully stepping over a large walkway and nimbly navigating between buildings during the fight in Hong Kong). The pilots in the jaegers are very human and imperfect but are still heroes. They may have created monsters, but they did not become them.
Everyone and their mother has lauded this, but it bears repeating: in Pacific Rim, mankind’s power is not in its capacity for destruction or power or control or harnessing its deepest instincts but instead in its humanity—its ability to rebuild, to persevere, to empathize and to understand.
