A Model Life Paperback
Whilst recovering from a canoeing accident in the South of France, and with a promising professional swimming career in tatters, 16 year-old Marion sees an advert that will change her life: Icon models are holding a contest.
She enters, gets whipped into shape by militant stylists, cross-dressing walking experts and chain-smoking make-up artists and manages to win a modelling contract.
But when she arrives in Paris to begin modelling, her glamorous ideas are quickly dispelled.
She becomes indebted to the agency and struggles to get her first break.
Based on true events, A Model Life follows Marion's career as she climbs up the modelling food-chain, from dealing with pervy photographers in Paris to trudging through snow to castings in New York, from Armani to Playboy Marion has seen it all.
This book is a must for anyone who wants to know what modelling is really like...
The real Marion has enjoyed an international modelling career for over 15 years, including haute couture shows, designer campaigns and TV commercial work.
