I was around 15-16 when I saw an Elle (Elle France or Elle Spain I think, not sure..) cover of Karen Elson at the shop and I was in awe, I bought it and read her story and even before reading it, I felt so identified with her look, like she wasn't ugly but she was odd and quirky; I was always surrounded by gorgeous girls at school and though I wasn't ugly, I wasn't gorgeous like them either, I always had beauty issues until I saw that cover. Those days fashion magazine covers were invaded by Amber and Shalom and Nadja, when I saw Karen it was like I finally arrived. Around 1999 I started buying more fashion magazines and that's when I really got into it, the photography, the models, the clothes, the hair and makeup.. I wouldn't wanna be a model, or a photographer, or designer or makeup artist (I lack creativity, I used to be very creative when I was younger but it faded away), but I enjoy so much looking at clothes and hair and the latest models and cool editorials and covers. So that's my reason for liking models so much, what about you guys??
