Model is the definitive story of the international modeling business -- and its evil twin: legalized flesh peddling. Its a tale of beautiful women empowered and subjugated, of vast sums of money, of sex and drugs, obsession, and tragic death. At its heart is the most unholy combination in commerce: beautiful, young women and rich, lascivious men. Investigative journalist Michael Gross has interviewed modelings pioneers, survivors, and hangers-on, telling the story of the greats: Lisa Fonssagrives; Anita Colby; Candy Jones; Dorian Leigh and her sister Suzy Parker; Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy; Veruschka and Lauren Hutton; Janice Dickinson and Patti Hansen; and the supermodel Trinity: Christy, Naomi, and Linda. Taking us into the private studios and hidden villas where models play and are preyed upon, Gross tears down modelings carefully constructed fa?nbsp;ade to reveal untold truths of the ugly trade in pretty women.
