This is an intimate glimpse into the rarified lives of the supermodels, written by an ex-model and fashion industry insider. The book profiles over 50 of the world's top models, predicting the stars of 2000 and dipping into the history of the industry, from Coco Chanel's troupe of models in the 1940s, via Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton in the `60s, to today. The author interviews five rising stars, revealing the secrets of their discovery. She also follows a model around for a typical day, from her agency, to a casting and a shoot. Finally, she introduces the reader to the people who have the power to make, or break, the stars - the photographers, designers and magazines.
