Eileen Ford created her own profession by opening a modelling agency. She was a self made woman who followed her extraordinary sense of time and never took a step back from a career that she chose for herself. “Model Woman” by Robert Lacey is a biography that presents a multidimensional image of Mrs. Ford, that in many aspects was bitter sweet. Apart from reading about an interesting and inspiring persona, the book offers an insight into a birth of a modern day modelling and an evolution of a profession,that led from anonymous photo-models to international super stars. An interesting reading for all who would like to know a little bit more on the subject.
