The supermodel with a wise word

Since the last elimination, the mood in the house was lethargic to say the least; Krystal had been a popular, cheerful housemate and her presence was sorely missed. At around noon, the sound of stiletto heels could be heard on the penthouse steps as the elevator doors opened...


"Hi ladies!" Mae chuckled as the girls sat up, suprised that their host and mentor had popped in for a visit. "How're are you all? Let's all meet on the sofas!"

Mae made herself and the girls a pot of tea as she sat down, sipping from a teacup in a rather British manner (much to Emmeline's delight).

"So girls what's going down? I've visited today because, well I know how you guys felt when we eliminated Krystal, she's a lovely girl but like I said, this is a competition and each week somebody must go home. But that's besides the point, I'm here to answer any questions about the modelling world, advice, tips, anything! And also, I feel like I need to get to know you guys a bit better, after all, the new face of Fleur de Lys needs personality in addition to beauty! So come on hit me, whose first?"


Shyly, Vivienne held a teacup near her lips for lack of anything better to do with her hands. Seeing that everyone else was still thinking of what to ask, she spoke up first.

"What, in your opinion, is the most difficult part of taking a good picture? Do you have any...suggestions about how to overcome that?"
"Good question Vivienne. Models have to remember that it's not always about being conventionally beautiful, and furthermore you can't simply rely on your beauty. A good picture can only be obtained if you're willing to take risks and show versatility; you'll be applauded a lot more if you have a fabulous photo were you have taken a risk, as opposed to a good photo were you played it relatively safe."
"That doesn't make any sense. Of course you'll be more praised for a fabulous photo than a good one. What if you take a good photo with a risk as opposed to a fabulous one where you were safe? What's the situation then?"
"Sorry," Mae chuckled, "That wasn't very articulate. What I was basically trying to say is, don't be afraid to take risks. It's always lovely to see girls who try to think outside the box in terms of posing and emotion."
"Not relying on beauty sounds pretty difficult...but I suppose that's what we're here to learn. If you don't mind me asking, then, what for you has been the most rewarding thing about being a model? What kinds of experiences should we be looking forward to?"
