It hurts so bad! Too much to think about!
Somebody needs to help me out with this one. We have TWO photos purporting to show fashion models “listening to instructions” before presenting creations at a fashion show.
I can buy a team of surgeons getting final instructions before creating the Six Million Dollar Man, but what kind of instructions do models need to hear?
“Let’s pay attention folks, to avoid some of the unfortunate mishaps we had at yesterday’s show.
“First, try to remember the runway doesn’t go on forever. Just because Melanie forgot to stop doesn’t mean the rest of you had to keep going and fall on her….
“Candy, I saw you smile out there yesterday. Not good. Remember, this is a sullen, mopey collection we’re presenting. Let’s see some serious pouting out there!
“Now, I don’t want to accuse anyone by name, but there were FOUR carrot sticks missing from the kitchen this morning. One of you has been binge-eating, and it has to stop!
“That’s it from me, any questions? Kenny? Sigh. Kenny, you’re a male model. Your job is to go out there, let people see your pants, and come back. Look, what if I put it on cue cards. Would that help?”
