it's really hard to make models look ugly eigh ?? no matter how ugly their facial expressions are, they always manage to make it look pretty and cool .
i guess that's the joy of having a pretty face.

This is a really interesting post, Carrie. It's nice to see the fun and not-so-serious side of models. It shows they're human and they like to have fun with fashion as well.

Anika said...

Ugly made pretty. I like. Interesting post, and here's to food for thought on making models look ugly (but in the realm of pretty).
