The Model In These Photos
Kady Ruth Ashcraft

This was a charming piece, but it reminds me that being a model is a rough job. It’s all about your appearance. It requires being a mutant to start, then adhering to an insane routine to maintain the “look”. The model thinks that fruit is a dessert because she knows that if she ate anything else for dessert, she’d be out on her not quite as insanely skinny ass.

There’s a reason models live on nicotine and cocaine. It’s a nasty life. They usually start out as teenagers and are finished by the time they are in their early 20s. They are surrounded by sharks who are eager to exploit them. Only if they are smart and lucky, can they build alternate careers that will take them into middle age.
