After working backstage at Bauer Media’s 30 Days of Fashion and Beauty in Sydney, I’ve gained some interesting insight into the personalities of models.
If you’re wondering…they are as cliche as you think, well at least thats the conclusion I’ve drawn. With phrases like, “Well I was going to buy the Jimmy Choo’s” and, “Babe is this your handbag?-NO! I only buy Chanel handbags”, you can’t help but think they are all superficial.
One thing I did notice, was that all the models did not dress in designer labels- contrary to what I actually thought. Mostly, all dressed in cheap jeans, loose sweaters and Converse shoes-at least half with dirty shoes and rips in their jeans. However, they all had designer handbags. Whether it was Chanel, Louis Vuitton, or Miu Miu, it was as if it was the only extravagant purchase they had made.
Another thing I noticed , was if you managed to grab a model by themselves in conversation with you, they would politely respond but as soon as they could they would start talking to their fellow models. It was as if it was beneath them to talk to their dressers.
With that being said, I was fortunate enough to work with some models throughout the event that did not personify this theory, Such as Rachel in my featured image.
