Guys, meet a real fashion model!
There was a time when being a model in Paris meant something glamorous, but today, when you can’t tell a haute couture runway from a set for the Addams Family, apparently things are different.
Guys, if somebody offers to fix you up on a blind date with a “fashion model,” it’s okay to ask some diplomatic questions before you meet her. Here are some that have worked for me:
a) By the way, do you keep a dial telephone on a Greek column at your house?
b) So, what do you think of that Sunset Boulevard movie, anyway?
c) Do you spend much time digging in your backyard?
d) Will your dolly be joining us for dinner?
