Currently watching the documentary on British Vogue and find the commentary by former fashion director Lucinda Chambers on the modelling industry during a production scene back in 2016, with model Lineisy Montero and photographer Demarchelier super relevant and very much an inside look at the industry. "Today's models have a more of a fragile, less obvious healthy beauty (when compared to the super models of the past). Whats difficult about right now is they come and go. Five and ten years ago there was a longevity to girls, you could watch them grow develop, flourish, hate modeling and come back to modeling. Now what you see is a much faster pace. Its almost as if the industry is not giving them a chance to grow into their own skin." I believe the reality stands true today although social media is bringing back the personality factor to many models, creating a particular interest in their private lives.
Last year she was " fired" and controversially said the fashion industry could “chew you up and spit you out. I know glossy magazines are meant to be aspirational, but why not be both useful and aspirational? That's the kind of fashion magazine I’d like to see." ....Love her.
