There are no washrooms for models backstage at WIFW. A male model was heard complaining, “We have to walk almost half-a-kilometre to reach the washroom.” What?
Hair’s the problem
Two firangi models awaiting their turn for a hair job the fourth time in six hours were heard lamenting, “They first curled our hair. Now it’s so frizzy; it’s almost ruined. And now they’ll flatten it with an iron. Our hair’s almost gone.”
Make-up for it!
Interestingly, a senior make-up artist from a particular brand (the products of which sell like hot cakes) actually went up to another make-up artist and purchased eight products. Now, whoever coined the term ‘professional rivalry’ can go take a hike!
Kids outshine moms
When kids walked the ramp for Shane & Falguni Peacock, a birdie chirped, “Thank God the mommies have given
way to their kids. What a horror it was to see cellulite thighs, stretch-marks and sucked-in bellies that bloated back as the society mommies gasped for breath on the ramp last season.” Ouch.
The ladies who came without valid invites, hoping to catch the shows, failed and hung around the coffee lounge. And if they saw a familiar face, they deftly avoided embarrassment by saying, “Oh, I just came here for a cuppa with my client.” Yeah, right!
