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?"


Mae gave a bashful grin. "I grew up in a rather modest family, and both of my parents are painfully bashful. My first nude shoot was for designer Celia Hudson, I wore nothing but a diamond necklace and to tell you the truth, I was sooo nervous. But after I saw the final print, there was nothing really exposed and it felt rather liberating; the female form when in the right type of photoshoot is actually really beautiful, and there isn't anything seedy about it all. On the flipside though, I've rejected quite a few offers from 'lads-mag' type photoshoot, I just think they're really not my thing. In that sense I think high fashion nudity is completely different to glamour modelling."
Fleur nodded her head, offering a petite smile. "I understand completely -my views are rather similar to yours, I think. I could never see myself doing something for a lads-mag, but...high-fashion? I think I'd give it a go. Thank you, Mae."
"The big difference I think is the chief objective of such campaigns; high fashion is about beauty, and admiring haute couture as a crucial element of fashion. However, glamour seems to be based around men looking at these images because the women look attractive, it's all a little primitive in my opinion."
