At this time in my life there is so much to be thankful for — however unless I am actually with the person or people who have assisted me so dearly, it remains a difficult task to simply say “thank you.” Not that I haven’t tried mind you; I maintain several boxes of Very Special one-of-a-kind Thank you cards with room to write dearly and/or deeply to the recipient.
And it is not all about the photographer (though don’t tell them that!), or creative director, or stylist, or make-up and hair coiffures, sometimes the most meaningful person could quite easily be any number of assistants who are either working for free or very little in the form of wages.
It just might be that smaller and really young ‘gopher’ who runs around the model seeing to it that the gown or wedding dress is lying perfectly in front of you; yep, these are the ones who brave waking up the crew at ungodly hours in the morning, but still manage to know how you prepare your coffee or tea.
These are the absolute ‘go-too’ ladies (girls really) when something is not fitting properly and creating the biggest uncomfortable mess it seems like one’s ever been in; it’s these worker’s of wonder that have the simple stitch that can turn a hugely uncomfortably, uncompromising shoot into a memorable day spent in a hospital emergency room!
Before I forget to mention her, up above is the enormously successful on the pathway of gaining Supermodel status and my buddy, Rosie, who I swear has the longest legs that could rival Anna Hickman’s sticks. Talk about fun, Rosie knows fun! It’s like everybody knows her, and the first round of cocktails (regardless of how many in her party) are always on the House. She is an absolute doll that can spice up any evening with popcorn and a film from the 1970s! She knows how much I love her…so there you go, sweet cheeks featurette on my blog.
The aspiring model just above is far more known for her acting skills than as a magnificent model. We’ve been friends for what seems like our entire lives; if ever anyone found themselves in a pinch this gorgeous girl would spare at nothing to lend a hand, or car, or home, or a date, or that special someone that always has that ‘just right’ accessory or plaid skirt needed for a girls night out.
Up top is without question the greatest specimen of tush I could imagine! Look hangin’ out with a bunch of ladies for work might seem like a dream come true to most male friends I know; however, during our ‘monthlies’ most ladies make even being around them a real chore. Any way one could easily say “…Girl, you’re backstage with the elite of elites with nothing on but some sexy panties or some lingerie and they’re getting dressed…” “And” I say to these folks, sometimes several of us will help them into their skinny jeans when were done, or there are always those times when when someone needs a hand for her unmentionables and you’re the only one around.
This little bombshell above with the cutest butt-dimples I swear could make a decent living just featuring her bum and those dimples! But then as one gets into her posture, lines and quintessentially perfect hair and face…oh well some just get it all. And she is so nice, unassuming, and as modest as a little girl. She is such a love…
Now then…word has it — the truth — about modelling is roughly similar to that of a mannequin. Whenever any model starts getting an attitude they’re sharply reminded of the fact that it’s the clothes, jewelry, lingerie, furs, jeans, blouses, that are on a given model because they matched up well at a casting call or perhaps someone just wanted you to wear their designs. Then again those folks up top would look amazingly funny if either of them was with a mannequin! Especially one of those faceless or anonymous looking dreadful things…What would you do? Chances are that these two models perhaps don’t even know the other’s name. Better still, they probably are not native English speakers either. So we have this hunk from Greece teamed up with a lady from Slovakia because they look good together. What are they advertising…his farmer John arms or it must be the fabric on the pillows in the background. Hell they sure did a great job!
