On the blogs: a real story about the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

November 30, 2007/23.01

Spotted on Stevie Wilson’s LA-Story site: a video on the casting of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

It came to my attention today that someone is going around New York with a stylist’s pull letter apparently signed by me.    Thanks to a showroom rep who had excellent instincts, I was alerted. His words: ‘He was suspicious from the get go. I’m glad I check[ed] this out. I work with a few of […]
