Gone are the days of the Supermodel.
I can confidently say that the advertisement world killed them all!
This post I decided to gather up my fav mag covers for July 2010. I noticed the lack of models and replacement of celebs.
Lucky for Kate Moss I think she is “the last of a dying breed.” Tyra Banks recently said that your chance of becoming a model was as great as getting struck by lightning, and I agree.
With brands looking to become these mega brands, how could you sell your product with the face of a model? They barely exist. And you wonder why we are all obsessed with celebrities – they are everywhere.
Take a look at all the covers I loved for the month of July (all Hey Bella approved). I searched for models … I couldn’t find them??
