The Cathy Outtakes: never-before-seen photos you won't believe!

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 blink...

or exhale awkwardly.

Fabrics cling...

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.

Happy Saturday, everybody!


  1. Hahahaha! I see you have just as much sewing going on there as I do here. Ahem. None.

    Happy Saturday backatcha.

  2. hehehehe

    Love the last shot. Did you do the embroidery on that white top? The glasses are really fetching, n'est ce pas?

  3. I was worried we were going to see Cathy modelling nothing more than her birthday suit and a sewing machine. Whew!

  4. Debbie, you're treadling on thin ice.

  5. Yesterday I told my best friend that I have a secret (and platonic) crush on you (not so secret anymore, non?). How can someone be that hilarious and come up with such great ideas for posting. I'm always happy to see that you posted something when I check my blogroll in the morning. Too damn funny.

  6. Wow...Cathy has a great bottom!

  7. Thanks, Alison. I'll tell her you said so.

    Yes, Katarina, I'm sort of the Rupert Everett of the sewing blogging world.

  8. Cathy also uses your almond oil routine? I'm going to have to try that. Also, I need to do more squats :-)

  9. I see someone is still not sewing someone's suit. Notice how I am posting this anonymously. (giggle)

  10. What generous soul Cathy is to let us see her in off moments. It only makes me love her more! BTW still love those glasses in the last shot.

    (Anything to keep from sewing?)

  11. Thanks for the great laugh! Where's the suit? Isn't the birthday coming up soon? A little guilt from your readers.

  12. Peter: I'm off to an adventuresome (unknowable) day of sewing - but this post made me laugh out loud and has put me in the right frame of mind to have some fun today.

  13. Oh, hell, I don't care if you ever finish that suit. Much love to you and Cathy for brightening up my day.

  14. Hm. Seems there's more sewing going on here than at your place, Peter. I'm finally making up Vogue 8060. As of two this morning, the main dress is sewn together and I was working on the overlay...

  15. Oh Pedro, thanks for the first good laugh of the week.

  16. Yay for putting off sewing! I adore those glasses in the last photo...very Jane Fonda in the early 80s only much much better.

  17. It's good to see that a Uber Supermodel like Cathy can have a few 'off' moments like the rest of us mere mortals.

  18. I can't stop laughing! Thank you!
