While I was browsing today's collections (yep, before 9 AM), I got a little distracted from enjoying the Marc Jacobs details by the same thing that has distracted me a zillion times before.
Models have some nasty feet.
I mean, I'm guessing you or I would, too, if our job was to walk around for weeks straight in the Medieval torture devices designers call high fashion shoes, but you'd really think that photographers would think twice before handing over a detail of a model's bloody, crunched toes as something they actually expect a site to consider posting-- especially when she's wearing the same shoes as half of the other models.
Perhaps this is what it means when they say that beauty is pain, but either way it makes me pretty darn thankful I'm not a model.
