Fashion Update: Hot tips for supermodels
Thursday 17 February 1994
These hard-luck tales of life at the top are just a taste of what's inside Arthur Elgort's Model Manual (see left), the Vogue photographer's how-to guide to modelling, launched this month in the US.
Printed in scrapbook format, Elgort, (the first photographer to spot Christy Turlington's potential), has compiled a jumble of 'off camera' snaps; snippets of conversations with model stars past and present, plus some pretty basic but indispensable bite-sized advice on what every aspiring model should know but rarely does: 'Don't be lazy. Don't complain. Learn to act like someone else, but also be yourself. Be on time.'
Designers, agents, editors and actresses all get a look-in. But the book is far from being hollow gloss - it's a refreshingly realistic view of a world that all too often trades in ego.
