Self- delusion, incorporated

Are models really stupid? Well, after watching this film, I'd have to say, "almost always." Being beautiful does not preclude one from possessing intelligence, nor opening a book. I learned more "truths" from Eileen Ford and John Casablancas than anyone else. If you were a reader of "Seventeen" magazine, which I wasn't, then you can see what time has wrought. Only a couple of the models were truly beautiful- the rest had the necessary "blank faces" upon which skillful makeup application produces wonders. The gossip-y "bad stuff" in modeling always happened to other people, and they were always far, far away... Very few comments of the former models could be even remotely viewed as insightful. In fact, they were all pretty vapid (including Brooke Shields- and what a surprise). By the way- can anyone recall Whitney Houston's modeling career?
