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?"


"Oh, so many times you wouldn't believe, especially when I was just starting my career, June. One specific time is on my third or fourth casting and I'd got into the habit of wearing all my best clothes and being all 'HIIIIIII!' and the designers would look at me like, 'Why the hell is she vomiting rainbows everywhere?' It's all about knowing you're on a learning curve, for a lot of you, modelling is a completely new thing and everybody has to start somewhere. I'd say you just have to take it on the chin."
June slowly eases up as Mae starts to answer her question.

"You know, I hate to sound so snooty, but I think I get a little bit of comfort knowing you and the other judges aren't perfect. I mean, you ladies got to where you are by doing something right. And in this competition, I think i've begun to realize that I'm turning into a perfectionist, and its driving me crazy! I've noticed myself stressing about the simplest things, like, OMG, are these the right shoes, or UGH, i should have worn this bracelet instead! But the fact that you said that we have to know and realize we are on a learning curve, helped alot! That is so true. There is always room for mistakes, as long as you learn from them. Right???" June asks Mae diligently.

"You're right, June. Even if you do have say a less than perfect pair of shoes, your pose, outfit and expression should rock it anyway. We all start somewhere, and even now I look at shoots of myself and think 'I could've done it that way,' or 'I should maybe have lifted that left leg higher,' but a fabulous photo is made by a fabulous model, not a divine pair of shoes."
