This week there were some SERIOUS model lessons learned amongst the antigravity yoga madness and the superman-style telephone box dressing room (agree, Dajana?). Here are a few, we at Team Tres took home with us:
Model Lesson No. 1: Do NOT bite the hand that dresses
When Dajana let rip at Alex for his frayed laces, she was committing a cardinal model sin: do not disrespect the house of Perry, or any other designer/artist/professional, ever. Can you imagine anyone screaming at Valentino like that? Oh, gosh, I shudder to think. Lucky she made up for it in the mirror shoot. Close call.
Model Lesson No 2: Multi talents maketh the model
Unless you can get your body to move at the same rate as your face (ie. quicker than the speed of light), you probably need to either practice (a lot) or rethink your career as a model. Unfortunately for models like, Melissa, Shanali and Shannon this is not coming naturally.
Model Lesson No 3: Everybody has a story
Snaps Didier for taking some personal time out for the girls. It’s amazing to hear how far some of these girls have come and the determination it has taken for them to get there. Stories from models like Jade and Duckie prove that you can set your mind to something and achieve it, no matter what!
At the end of the day though, it was Shannon’s time to go. And as much as this is sad for her and her fans, I think it’s nothing a little time and practice can’t fix. Go Shannon, go!
Yours of the mind that Duckie or Dajana could take this thing HOME!!
