$10,000 A Day

I remember reading an article over 10 years ago about supermodel Naomi Campbell or Linda Evangelista not getting out of bed for less than $10,000 a day.  I used to think that was ridiculous, all they had to do was sit around and take some pictures; I was wrong. 

I was a model for a photo shoot not too long ago.  It is going to sound stupid, but sitting around and having people throw you in clothes to try on, pull your hair, poke you in the eye with mascara brushes, paint your face, etc is not easy.  It's actually pretty tiring.  You can't really do anything except sit still.  Trying on clothes took about 30 minutes.  Hair took about two hours.  Make up took another two hours.  Rollers coming off took about 15 minutes.  Make up touch up, another 15 minutes.  Pictures, another 15 minutes.  It was almost a full day of work!!  Taking off the makeup?  At least 15 minutes.
