"EYES AND EYEBROWS, THE
REST IS EMPTY WORDS"
from turkish Hayat 10. September 1984 #37
While there is a big competition between european models, a young and
alluring girl named Stephanie Collins became a star suddenly. Stepahnie
is only 18 and her most important features are her blue eyes and
Stephanie is making so much money from the face photographs that she
can not find time to walk on the runway. The young model says "I always
dreamed of walking on runways when I was a kid, but I became a photo
model instead. For exactly one year I have been posing for fashion
magazines and advertisements. My life is under bright spotlights heat.
This is not very enjoyable. But experts told me that fame and fortune
are made by modelling (posing), not by walking on the runways, so I
accepted my situation". When asked why she is so scucessful: "My eyes
and eyebrows are enough. No one is interested in my body. Therefore I
take care of my skin to be in a very good condition."
The model, who earns so much money, can not find anywhere to spend her
money. In her private life she wears blue jeans only and the clothes
she wears in advertisements are given to her as gifts. She is almost
always hungry. She says that she likes cooking very much, "It is too
bad not to be able to eat after you cook something. I feel very happy
when my friends like what I cook."
The beautiful model can not go on vacations either. Think where else
can she spend money. Stephanie says, "I do not have time now, but I
will be comfortable later in life."
