A key acquisition in this production was Chalita Tharpe, a makeup artist I'd met at a runway show, who not only knew exactly what would work best for makeup, but also took over the hair design, which was going to be my, much less successful job. That being done, she hung around to help the inexperienced model (that would be me) some tips on how to make her body look interesting. Without her and Amber giving me direction all the time, it would have looked like we had grabbed whomever was around to wear our clothes. Which we had.
And let me just say - I was seriously sore the next day! The hours of standing and twisting and stretching, and holding myself up at odd angles...it was exhausting. No life of modeling for me! I plan to stick to the decorating of models, thanks very much.
