  • Quotes (5)

    • (to a male model about her cannibal shoot) A.J.: Oh, you'll get eaten and love it!

    • Tyra: The fashion industry and modelling and all that--it's just brainwashing people to think something's fabulous.

    • Twiggy: I actually think her abs are a bit scary. Tyra: They're drawn. Twiggy: Oh! They're drawn! Oh my goodness! Thank God! I was really worried about that. Miss Jay: God, Twigglets!

    • (in reference to CariDee's Elephant Woman picture) Nigel: You're modeling through the nose, I love it!

    • CariDee: Melrose always sucks up when it comes time to, like, meeting people. Which is a good strategy, but it's kinda funny to see her stick her nose right up their ass.
