Homeless models. Will pose for food.





Seriously, the challenge on a recent episode of America’s Next Top Model was for the girls to pose with homeless women and portray their inner struggle. I’m struggling not to cringe and then maybe vomit.

Having worked in mags for a long time and having conceived many a photo shoot, it’s not often that a fashion editor will suggest "I’m seeing, like, a homeless person and maybe some rags with, like a cardboard sign and some fingerless gloves."
My office used to be across the street from a park where lots of actual homeless people lived. The worlds of fashion and homelessness don’t often merge. AND THERE’S A GOOD REASON FOR THAT TYRA BECAUSE IT IS SICK AND INSENSITIVE.
