The mother of a model has just published her book Making A Supermodel, a guide for parents whose daughters want to work as clothes horses. Janice Celeste is the mother of model Sessilee Lopez, and she’s seen the world of modeling up close. Today, the Huffington Post shared the following two excerpts from the book:
“Mostly, the models there live out of their suitcases. Sometimes, their personal items will go missing, as the other girls often will ‘borrow’ personal items from one another without asking. The girl who took the item can easily forget she has it, then unexpectedly be on an airplane the next day to some exotic location for a job. She’s gone, and the item she took is gone as well.”
“I’ve seen some life-threatening measures models have gone through to lose weight. Luckily my daughter has never had a weight problem that kick-boxing couldn’t solve. I personally know of one model who dipped cotton balls in orange juice and consumed it to feel full. Later it came out that she had anorexia.”
We knew it was catty and bad for your health. We’re glad we’ve got real girls to model for us!
