I’m sporty and sexy and what else?
Blog Guy, I was intrigued by your post about models having to get “instructions” before fashion shows. Were you able to learn anything more about what they were being told?
No, but I have learned more about how important it is to motivate folks just before a big event.
Here is a shot of an actual backstage inspirational note for the models at an actual fashion show in New York this week. It tells them they are sporty and sexy, blah blah blah, and says, “And remember, EVERYONE wants to be YOU!”
Yikes. Did the designer write that crap himself?
Well no, I believe it’s a word-for-word copy of the note they gave Saddam Hussein before they hanged him, but whatever works.
Is that the entire note?
No. There’s a second page that is more specific. You know, stuff like “EVERYONE wants to be YOU, lady who doesn’t even get to wear any real pants, and YOU, chick who has to go out there in a see-through shirt with nothing underneath…”
Yeah, I can see why they’d need some extra motivation. Do you have a similar note in your office?
Of course, but mine says “NOBODY” instead of “EVERYONE.”
