Miss Arencibia is one of the Cuban examples of the current trend affecting the ballet world today. Tall, elegant, lyric, long limbed, thin ballerina who seems to be always trying to look for the perfect placement and posture, but lacking in old school force and solid technique, which is the complete opposite case with Valdes.
One of Arencibia's faults IMO, is the tendency to pose as a way to accent the music, instead of actually moving to it in order to convey emotion. So in that sense I can sort of agree with you on "trying to look for perfect placement...". But even then, she still has the sort of old skool quality that I admire in Cuban dancers, say what you will about her look or build. The Cuban quality of actual dancing and clean technique that they and POB dancers have, over the floridly affected manner of dancing that many Mariinsky ballerinas adopt at the expense of technique especially footwork or petit allegro. Arencibia does look different in physique from other BNC ballerinas, so I don't know if that has any influence on how she uses her Cuban schooling to accentuate it.
