Why does Scoreland make models look older?

In other words: Why do the stylists hired by Score often apply makeups and hairdos that make the models 5 -8 years older? Quite unlikely this doesn't just happen because it's the stylists' personal decision, because they think the model simply looks better or hotter that way. Throughout the years, photo sets and videos published by the Score Group always had quite consistent esthetics. And when they changed a bit, that change happened across the board, on all their sites like Scoreland, XLGirls or the sites dedicated to particular models. It's safe to assume that such fundamental decisions are made in the upper management. Are the stylists working without general instructions? I doubt that.

I'm not saying that this 'more mature look' is applied all the time. I've started to notice it occasionally - often enough to see it as a recurring pattern. But what's the reasoning behind that? Does it look more 'porn'? Do they want to cater the older subscribers? Or is it something like: A model either has to look really young or more mature? I have no idea. I wished somebody, probably working for Score, could clue me in.

But it's not only the direct effect of the stylist's work. The models also seem to make rather 'hard', not to say 'frozen' expressions. What makes them look older as well.

Rather randomly i collected a few examples and show them back to back to photos these models did for other sites. In other words i did not try HARD to find the best examples to support that 'pattern'. They still should be revealing enough.

My first example shows April Mckenzie.

She was 23 at the time of both shots. On the Score example i would estimate her over 30. Of course these are very different pictures, in various aspects. Like the shot from her personal site is more 'amateur'. What matters is that she looks so much older (then she is in reality) on the Score shot . Why in the world?

Second example is Sienna Hills.

FeedHerFuckHer sample versus PlumperPass sample. Again there seem to be ages between these shots. Certainly her more lively expression on the shot for PlumperPass makes her look younger as well.

Jade Parker aka Jade38H is the most striking example. Thus i had to make two comps.

Actually i had to look twice to recognize her, even after being a many times recurring member of her personal site. Can this be true? At the time of both shots Jade was 26, what she looks like on the sets from her own site. On the basis of the XLGirls shots i would guess she's much older, probably in her mid or late 30s.

I have to mention however that Jade currently is listed as the most popular XLGirls model!!! But does that suffice to say that they must have done something right? As somebody who rather would consider a glass half full than half empty, i'm tempted to say: She is that popular not because but despite setting her in scene that oddly.

What happened to Kristina Milan? Pregnant? Turned into a BBW? No longer Modeling? [Upd. 2011-05-03]

Not instantly, but for a while now i have a weakness for this 23 year old voluptuous beauty from Puerto Rico. I took my time not necessarily because i'm allergic against hype (it was huge when she made her debut). But the sole news that a model has 42K boobs ain't enough to get me started. And her being the PROPERTY of TitsAndAssPass, a subsidiary of IncrediblePass, who are notorious for displaying their models in a grimly derogatory style, didn't help either.

There's something about her. Obviously her large bouncy boobs on her soft, slightly plump body. But there's also something very unique about her appeal. That, despite her being on a 'porn-porn' site where a model just gotta have the right assets and totally to serve as a 'vehicle' for gonzo-style fantasies, like submissively suck & getting taken from all angles. And, at the end of a scene, has to take a spoon to swallow the cum that hit her. Showing something like a personal style or even personality is the least thing required or tolerated. Rather the model has to fake her excitement constantly, like making carried-away faces and moaning, even before the signs of any action - EXCESSIVELY, even compared to regular porn sites

Kristina Milan's talents as a performer in hardcore scenes have been the subject of various discussions. Some guys mercilessly voted her as one of the worst performers ever. I can see why: unlike an established pornstar, who would go through such scenes with cold-blooded & smooth routine, plus a convincing smile, Kristina always has something hesitant, mildly-clumsy and dorky in her performance - paired with those 'funny' expressions. The evangelists of 'proper' porn certainly do disapprove that. On the other hand it gives her a personal quality of ... well, not innocence, but genuineness. She comes across as a real character. Probably she was discovered and got into the biz as a total amateur, got not proper guidance except a few harsh instructions, and she locks herself totally up during the scenes, as some kind of protection to let things not get too close to her. That prevents her from becoming a 'pro' but, indirectly, makes her quite cute and adorable - a quality you wouldn't expect on that type of network.

For a while now she is appearing on various webcam networks as well. Being on her own, with nobody barking instructions at her, her peculiar look, something between a bit distant (but friendly), curious, mildly bored, cute, but also totally real becomes even more apparent. Those few captured camshows from mid last year are serious fan material.

In the last months a real tsunami crashed over TitsAndAssPass and IncrediblePass: Accusations of credit card fraud, affiliate sites pulling out and the huge controversy over getting Miosotis over from Miosotis-Claribel to ClubMiosotis. For reference, check discussions on ChubbyParade here or there. Or the extensive blog by Titstoknees. But what happened to Kristina Milan in the meantime?

After constant updates on her site (part of the TitsAndAssPass network), the gaps got longer this year, with updates completely drying out after April 2009, according to my sources. Of course they advance-shoot her content in batches, so that they usually have content for 6 months to come i reckon. Quite likely her last material was shot way back in 2008. Occasional speculation came up: Kristina got knocked and/or gained lots of weight. No hints whatsoever, till these webcam captures emerged:

My first impression: sure thing, she is preggerz. This video, apparently from the same time, seems to confirm that. But then - she always had a lil belly sticking out!! And some girls, after gaining a bit of weight, tend to look 'pregnant'. Making a few screen captures of this clip doesn't help the decision either.

This poster on Curvage claims to have chatted with her:
"I'm not sure she's pregnant, I chatted to her on the cam site where that video is from and she just looked fat. And huge, very, very huge! She also looked very bored! Was strange seeing such a massively voluptuous woman live in front of me and being strangely turned off, she could not have looked more disinterested.
I have no proof mind so she could well be preggas."

I can't decide either. And leave the speculation to others. Or till more evidence shows up.

Confusing as well is her repeated change of chathost names. On IMLive she started as KristinaMilan1. This account still exists but her last activity was early September 2008. Later in 2008 she opened another account on IMLive as F4nnyHill, where she showed off her expanded curves. That account is deleted now. VERY strange!!!

From the end of 2008 til (at least) springtime 2009 she was active as AngelMilan on Lives.Net. She looks bigger than usual again but hasn't grown compared to the IMLive shots - although the release date of pics of course isn't a real proof. The tiny video there looks like a sample from a so far unreleased scene. Pictures from Lives.Net: lists her as well as AngelMilan, has the same pix as and claims her latest activity as yesterday (August 8th). Not sure if that info is trustworthy.

Remains as well the question what is going on with her site on the TitsAndAssPass network. She continued to do cam shows, so she hasn't left the biz. Not unlikely that she split from the ChimpCrew, as people have started to call BossXXX's company. Like Maria Moore did. So they lost 2 of the most popular models. But what will that mean for Kristina? She definitely will get offers by Scoreland and others. But that will not bring her a new personal site. A model that already had a site, with lots of not so attractive content being released, is never the first option for an established company, even if the model's name is Kristina Milan. Her being located in Puerto Rico might be another hurdle. She needs a dedicated webmaster who believes in her and is able to provide valid guidance. And probably somebody local to shoot consistently good content with her - exceeding the standards of TitsAndPass isn't that hard though. I would deeply regret to see a model with her potential disappear form the scene.

I wonder if she will reappear at Myspace. Okay, she would get BOMBARDED with questions, offers etc. Her old profile (if it wasn't a bogus account) saw me stopping by regularly. She updated her blog frequently, mainly with sharing her insights about everyday life questions. Sometimes a bit generic but with a very positive attitude. It's nice to see when a model has a big natural confidence, beyond her modeling work. Hopefully that will help her find ways for her career as well.

Update 09-09-05
Titstoknees, who has done serious investigations about Miosotis and other models working for IncrediblePass and TitsAndAssPass and published the results at various places, told me in a reply on ChubbyParade that Kristina indeed had a baby. As well he added that the sites of Kristina Milan and Vanessa Del on TitsAndAssPass "are as good as dead".

Update 10-10-15
Just found on Score's EboobScore that the Busty Brown Sugar DVD has been released presenting, among others, a hardcore scene with Kristina which was shot, unlike the web releases earlier this year, long after her pregnancy. On my RadiantBomba blog i have a little entry about it. 

Update 11-05-03:
In case a search engine took you directly to this older post: Today i've published a short interview with Kristina Milan! It came as a very positive surprise when Kristina told me that she's ready to answer a couple of questions.
