Perhaps I should be watching Australia’s Next Top Model instead of writing this blog.
I just got told about this HILARIOUS comment former wife of James Packer and Tigerlily founder, Jodhi Meares, reportedly says about a model looking like Vogue Australia’s EIC, Kirstier Clements.
While I could have regurgitated the story, the SMH says it a lot better….
Vogue magazine staffers will be tittering behind their double-shot skinny lattes next week after the first episode on Tuesday of the new series of Foxtel’s beauty contest Australia’s Next Top Model.
In the episode, the host, Jodhi Meares, compares one young contestant, Alamela Rowan, to Vogue’s editor, Kirstie Clements. While SiT struggled to see the similarity between the 17-year-old high school student from Byron Bay and the fashion maven at the series launch in Sydney on Wednesday, Meares disagreed. “They do, they have the same look!” the model said.
Alamela told SiT she found the comparison “very flattering”, although Clements, who had yet to see the first episode, was a little taken aback. “No, that had never occurred to me,” she said, laughing.
Clements said she enjoyed her role in the show as a confessed “ogre” – a character no doubt inspired by Meryl Streep’s turn as the US Vogue editor Anna Wintour in the film The Devil Wears Prada. “In one of the episodes I say to one of the girls, ‘Have you put on weight?”‘ Clements said. “After that episode, I am going to be Kirstie ‘Have You Put on Weight?’ Clements.”
She has a sense of humour for the public to see after all… Shame I have more important things to spend my money on than Foxtel.
