Top Model

I've noticed that several Web sites that focus on fashion also focus on the lives of models. But as obsessed as I am with fashion, I've never really cared about models, except when they've done something scandalous or smart -- both rarities, I'd say.

But I will admit to a mild obsession with the faces of the J.Crew catalog. Since high school, the natural beauty of those girls has inspired my look, even when their fashions were off the mark. I saw one of the girls at an East Village bar about a year ago and almost went up to her, declaring my admiration. Then I remembered that she's a model, and a model whose name I don't even know, and decided that would probably seem creepy.

In the last J.Crew catalog, I noticed this girl in particular, and determined she was my favorite model of the moment. Then I spied her on the Chanel resort runway. Her name is Lisa Cant. Yay for the J.Crew girl with the chops to do runway!

I agree - As much as I ogle at hot, muscular, oiled men in Dsquared2 and Dolce & Gabbana ads, I don't really care much about their personal lives.
