Sorry I wasn`t ranting much, Ger. I was busy with nearly a month straight of Fashion Weeks in New York, Paris and Milan. Then I came straight home and went to work in a haunted house.

And yes, thats me in the Alexander McQueen show in Paris just a few weeks ago.

Some of those look really painful. It`s the shoes really, some of them are obnoxiously big. I remember them doing that on America`s Next Top Model. Both scary and entertaining at the same time. I hope no one got seriously hurt.

"It could be affect on girls` future in fashion."

Does anyone else feel that there`s something wrong with this sentence?

"vv Uh-oh, don`t tell Iroj...

drat fashion models and drat the fashion industry. It`s all 100% crap. All the women are forced to shape their bodies into something nasty to look at, and all the "clothes" are no more clothes than rap is music. Fake, thrown together nonsensical garbage.
The entire fashion industry needs to burn to the drating ground."

When will designers get a clue and design shoes that can actually be used for walking?

Alfie, are they professional international models or are they the bleach blond whores from the mall tricked into paying $4000 dollars to a scam agency so they can pose on cars in bikinis?

Because there is a HUGE difference.

> go back to your lab and finish curing cancer

[Lionhart goes down to the shed and comes back with a cancer cure half an hour later] Honestly, I didn`t know it was such a problem in the world, I`m surprised no-one asked me for one years ago!

The cure for cancer is the same as the cure for dang near everything else - just inject smaller doses into your system to build up immunity to it! That`s my excuse for being a smoker and I`m sticking to it!

Yes, but I meant it in the `walking clothes hanger` way. I just worded it poorly.

The clothes drape better on smaller people than it would with a woman who is curvy and give a better idea of the silhouette to the article of clothing rather than the woman. The clothes are you, not the other way around. You`re only there to give it life.

Iroj, like I said, I understand what you were getting at as far as tall thin women being preferred because it shows how the clothing drapes better and because you`re supposed to be a "walking clothes hanger" but your comment that, "Clothing looks better on smaller people. Face it." was egotistical and quite frankly way off base. It weakened your arguement is all I`m saying.

You know I really don`t want to upset any aspiring or current Models out there, but honestly, modelling is like the most BASIC job in the world. Step 1 - wear clothes. I mean even the cavemen worked that one out, its possibly the first thing humankind did after they learned to pick up a stick and kill something with it. Probably well before discovering fire. I mean if the only job requirement is caveman-level skills, modelling is truly the Career for people who are completely useless for everything else.

Mollie signed with a good agency, but she`s not a name you hear or see often. She`s pretty much faded off.

And yes, I`ve done some print work. I`m by no means a famous name, actually, I`m pretty much coming to the end of my career. I think I only have a season or so left. I`m already getting the `old` comment.

His career has REALLY taken off since Manhunt. He was with Janice for a bit before getting a major offer in Asia.

He`s doing very well for himself. I met him once at New York Fashion Week and he was absolutely darling. I kept looking at him, he`d look at me then we`d look away.

Finally I walked over and said "You`re John from Manhunt." and he smiled and was like "Yeah! I know your work too!"

Then I told him he was cut way too early from that show, but I am glad he`s doing well. We walked outside Bryant Park to get some Soulless Bucks (Starbucks) and to talk.

He`s on my Facebook. He`s moved home to Las Vegas and is working in the Starbucks in the Albertson`s shopping mall, but is heading back to Asia to do more work.

Very nice guy. Actually, I should call him tomorrow.

"But all male models are gay"

No. Very few male models are gay. Off the top of my head the only male model I have met (out of the hundreds I`ve known from working at fashion shows) is John Stallings.

And yes, Prime, there is more to life than just, like, being really, really good looking. ;P

Lauraly, I`m not saying only thin girls are attractive. One of my very close friends is a size 14 and I think she`s one of the most beautiful looking girls I`ve ever known. What I am saying, is that through out fashion history the model is supposed to be tall and thin. When Fashion Shows first started in France in the 1500`s, thin women were picked because the designers worried that if they had a girl who was too curvy, it would distract from their clothing because everyone would be commenting on how beautiful SHE is.

Curvy women aren`t angular enough. A runway model is literally a walking clothes hanger. Thats what we`re there for. Its not us we`re selling, its the outfit.

Ive never understood how all these fasion people, and big namers shape their clothes around this ridiculously skinny and nasty and unhealthy people.... where are they making their money?
Look at health charts, theres normal, and obese, but their is also danger, and high danger levels for being too skinny and not having enough fat.. they look so gross =(

Eh...honestly except for 1 girl those definitely weren`t the thinnest models I have ever seen which is a nice change. There is NOTHING wrong with being skinny but there is a such thing as too much. I mean when you can see every indivudal rib and their clavicles, scapulas and hip bones look like they could poke out your eye that`s when it gets disgusting. These girls truly weren`t that bad.

On another note I think i`m the only girl who in the world who doesn`t find heels sexy.

I`m sorry Iroj, but I have to disagree with you on your whole "clothes look better on thinner people" comment. The morbidly obese gross me out (I understand being overweight, but unless you have a serious disability, there is no reason to be disgustingly fat) about the same as the ridiculously thin. It`s a personal preference, but the whole "thin = beauty" bullpoo is perpetuated by the fashion industry. I`d prefer to see women with curves or at least a muscular build (you guys might work out, but look at any major fashion model; she isn`t exactly built). Your statement that models are thin to see how the garment will drape makes sense, but don`t spout off about only thin girls being attractive.

-sigh- Reply to this is like banging your head against a brick wall. No one ever learns anything, but here we go.

As a few of you know, I work the cat-walk as a part of my living. During the off-season (between fashion weeks and major campaigns) I have a regular job.

So, here is my response to a few comments (not that it won`t stop the flood of idiots and their opinions):

"Here`s your job: walk down to there, turn around and walk back. Try not to fall over."

Here`s your job: Get to work on time, do something on the computer at your desk, pretend to look important. Try not to drat it up.

"Anyone who thinks this is hard has never worked a day in their lives."

So, why don`t you come do my job then, and I`ll switch your rocket-science/curing cancer job for a week. I mean, how hard can it be to prance?

No, we`re not out there curing cancer, sending monkeys into space or cloning your ass, but its not an easy task to perform. Allow me to enlighten you:

Clothing comes in what is called `sample sizes` which is a 0-2 (very rarely 4), the model tries on the outfit usually a few days/weeks before the show to make sure it looks right on her. Very little alteration is done.

The clothing, depending on what designer you work for (and if its Ready-To-Wear or Haute Couture), can be easy to work with or VERY hard and constricting, especially if the size is too small, which it often is. A size 0-2 is a 23"-25" waist while the hips are 32"-34". Think about that.

Now we get to the shoes. The Alice asked why not use simple flats in the shows. The term "the shoes make or break the outfit" applies very much in fashion. Not only do these designers have clothes to show off, but shoes, hates, glasses, and pretty much everything else under the sun. You are right in saying its all about exaggeration, especially in Haute Couture power houses where its about the ART of the clothing, not the ready

to wear ease of it. High shoes also give the illusion of making your leg longer and slimmer than it is, and we all know that is the goal of the runway. In all my years of runway work, I`ve only had three pairs of shoes that actually fit. The shoes also come in Sample Sizes: usually much too small (size 6-7. The average model`s foot is 8-9) or too large (10-11). Consider the fact you`re up on very very high, thin points and having to walk in too small or too high shoes. Its difficult, as many girls who wear proper-fitting shoes will tell you.

Finally, you had to the fact that you CAN NOT look down, must walk a certain way (toe to heel rather than heel to toe), have a certain facial expression, bring the clothing to life, are blinded by dozens of camera flashes every second and the runways are very slick and often reflecting the light back up to you.

"If they weren`t so bony and had more muscle" Yet another common misconception. Models HAVE to work out. We can`t just be

skinny with no tone to us. That would NOT fly and we would get dropped from our agencies. You must maintain tone. Pilates is a very popular exercise because it gives you muscle tone without bulking you up. Same with yoga.

"if i designed clothes id want my models to be over weight. bigger canvas ya see"
There is a reason tall, skinny girls are picked for this job. Its the same reason "plus size" models are sizes 10-12. Clothing looks better on smaller people. Face it.

You`re not there to be seen. You are there because you have a sharp, angular body much like a clothes hanger. You want to see how the clothing will drape, not how it looks on Miss BBW Fabu-Ass 2009.

I could get more into the actual history of it...but I`ve already rambled enough. Not like anyone is going to read this or change their minds.

alice_X I KNOW! I share the same view! I mean if women were meant to walk all tippy-toe their legs and feet would have grown that way! I mean we all have perfectly fine heels on our feet, why try to build a new one over the existing one?

I mean if it`s about how tall a girl is, that`s what platform shoes are for, right? They add about half a foot or more material to the bottom of the shoe and there ya go!

But even then the center of gravity may be a bit off...

I don`t get the point in making the models job so difficult... i know catwalks are all about exxageration, but humans walk on their feet...if they are wearing shoes impossible to walk in, they will fall, making the designers outfit look bad aswel as the model.

Not that I`m necessarily a fan of high fashion, or that I am a fan of emaciated models, but these women get shoved into 4-inch even 5-inch heels that are usually too small or too big.

It`s hard enough walking in normal heels that fit correctly...I can`t imagine walking in those beasts.
