Summary
Investigative journalist Michael Gross delves into the history of models and takes us into the private studios and hidden villas where models play and are preyed upon, going beyond modeling's carefully constructed facade of glamour to expose the scandal and untold truths that permeate the seemingly glamorous business.Here for the first time is the complete story of the international model business—and its evil twin: legalized flesh peddling. It's a tale of vast sums of money, rape both symbolic and of the flesh, sex and drugs, obsession and tragic death. At its heart is the most unholy combination in commerce: beautiful, young women and rich, lascivious men.Fashion insider Michael Gross has interviewed modeling's pioneers, survivors, and hangers–on, and he tells the story of the greats: Lisa Fonssagrives; Anita Colby, Candy Jones; Dorian Leigh and her sister Suzy Parker; Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy; Veruschka and Lauren Hutton; and today's supermodel trinity, Christy, Naomi and Linda
