Whats the funniest memory you have from a shoot? I had to pretend to eat a hotdog (I’m vegetarian) and a couple of months ago I booked for NY Fashion Week and The designer was Amy Yang, a couture designer from China. On the day of the show, backstage nobody spoke English…not any of the dressers, make up or hair people not even the person running the show.They didn’t know how to communicate or how they were going to match up the kids to the grown models or anything else, they started yelling and one person even stood up on a table and yelled something in Chinese. It was crazy. We were there for many hours before the show to get hair and make up. Five different people were working on my hair they tried three different styles until deciding on the final look, a bun the shape of a bow which took a long time. Right before we supposed to go out on the runway and everyone was dressed in their silk couture and starving, they brought out cold noodles in peanut sauce the messiest Chinese dish you could choose. All the models were bending over in ridiculous poses trying to eat the noodles with out forks, they only had chopsticks, It was hilarious watching the models trying to eat without getting peanut sauce on the beautiful couture gowns.The runway was very far from the dressing area so when we got off the stage we had to run full speed into the dressing room to change the dresses were flying like capes behind them.The show was great but you would never know the craziness that was going on behind the scenes.
