Casablancas
Every once in a while, people get angry with journalists and authors who write about them. John Casablancas, the founder of Elite Models, was livid when my book Model: The Ugly Business of Beautiful Women was published and even threatened to sue me over my portrayal of his life and times. So imagine my surprise when he invited me to lunch through a relative of mine, Harvey Tanton, who happens to be his accountant. That’s us (above), making peace and catching up at Rue 57 today. It’s good to know that time heals some wounds.
