The life of a model…
Last week Beth flew from LA to San Francisco for the Chanel Runway show.
She arranged for a cab to pick her up at 6:30am to take her to the airport. Unfortunately, the cab did not show up so she had to call around until she found a new cab that could get there very quickly. After much stress, she finally made it to her gate with just 10 minutes to spare.
Once she landed Chanel had arranged for a van to drive the models to the hotel. After a little down time in the hotel it was time to head to the Chanel Boutique for her fitting.
After the fitting she walked down the street to the Lux Salon where all the models got manicures and pedicures. One very nice perk from doing the show. Beth had so many blisters from New York Fashion week that she was very happy to finally get a pedicure and get her feet and fingernails all cleaned up.
After her spa time she was chosen to be the hair model. Which means the hair people practice the look for tomorrows show on her so everyone on the team knows what they’re doing the next day. There was another model that they did the make up look on. While Beth and the other model were waiting they were drooling over all the Chanel purses and shoes that were sitting around the room. Sadly no trade from this show.
Back to the hotel and to bed for an early day again tomorrow. Beth shared her room with a Brazilian model that didn’t speak much English, so no late night chats for them. They were both to sleep very early.
The next morning the van picked up all the models at 7:30am then took them to a private home in Atherton where the show took place.
After the show the models were brought straight to the airport for their return flight.
This is the second time Beth has done a Chanel runway show, the first time was in Istanbul. She really enjoyed the show and the little side trip was a nice distraction from all the bus taking in LA (which she does not enjoy.)
Here are a couple pics from the day that I snagged off Facebook. Thank goodness for Facebook or I would never get to see what Beth was up to!
