Even the most glamorous celebrity can get caught in an unflattering moment. And really, doesn't that only make us love them more?
It's easy to think that a model like Cathy Lane looks perfect all time. We might think we can never be as beautiful, as chic, or as smartly accessorized. Well, that may be the case.
I've asked Cathy to let me show her to you when the camera isn't catching her at her loveliest. Of course, the worst of the worst of these photos have long since been destroyed, the unlabeled hard drives dumped at sea. But after careful vetting, Cathy has agreed to let me show you a few images that didn't make the final cut -- not by a long shot.
Cathy wants you to know she puts on her Christian Dior pantyhose one leg at a time, just like you.
And even Cathy has to deal with saggy nylons.
Sometimes poses don't quite work.
A model can lose focus...
or exhale awkwardly.
or fail to cling...
Moments of serendipity fall flat.
She might be caught putting comfort before image...
or be forced to model an irredeemable outfit.
It's all in a days work.
Cathy has only one piece of advice to you, wise readers:
Try not to let them catch you with your hair down.
