I had the great luck to have had Frederique as a client and friend over the past few years. Given her superstar status and arresting natural beauty (h...
American Vogue has never featured an Asian model on its cover in its 40-plus years of featuring models.
We have a complaint. Truth be told we have lots of complaints, but we're on a bitching diet and are limiting ourselves to one really good bitch a day...
