I told him about how I started his thread and started talking about all the shows he did. I was so happy to see him in London.

I wish I could say all about how he was and stuff. but he was really uninterested.

It's a shame because I've always been hoping that someday I might meet him. I don't care how stupid I sound but I did, and I wasn't ever expecting to, anytime soon.

I've always heard how lovely and friendly he is but he didn't seem to be at all. And please, don't tell me that maybe he was having a bad day or was tired. He was fine and very talkative to the make-up artist and everyone else backstage. I'm not saying he is a bad person or anything, but im just really upset.
Kushie, I know how you must feel. I meet models all the time and there's something very strange about meeting someone whose pics you adore, yet in person, does not return the favor of being equally excited to meet you (this happened to me with Carmen Kass, a long time ago). All I can say is that it's extremely exhausting to always be "on" (like he was with the makeup artist, etc) and many times models are suspicious of people who've they've never met who are overly familiar with them.

Especially this past fashion week, I noticed at the Tents in Bryant Park, there are more people than ever, wanting a piece of them, a picture, an interview, etc. For many of these young models, it's overwhelming to be thrust into the spotlight. People say, well don't get into the business if you can't handle it.. It's the same as being an actor, many models truly like being in front of the camera or love the money it brings, but many do not realize the price they pay for privacy or a chance to rest. I watched Abbey Lee morph from a free spirited girl from the beach to someone who while still professional, became extremely guarded.

Backstage at shows, I usually ask to take their photos and then leave them be. I actually like to leave models alone, unless I know them well. I see many models on the subway or the streets of New York and could totally go up to them esp bec of where I work, but I've learned from being in the business for almost 2 decades that they are people, like you and me, who need their privacy. Think of it this way, if you are made up of a thousand parts, and a thousand people want a piece of you, you are left with nothing. I would bet money that if you had met him, through a friend and wasn't concerned with his modeling, he would have been a normal person and not closed off and unfriendly.

It took me a long time to get over being "rejected" by Carmen Kass for a photo, it was a great learning experience for me, though.
