Contemplating a comeback to the catwalk.


My publicist David J Mann called with some excited news. I have been asked to walked the runway at two  fashion shows; in Spring and Summer this year. Although I still model clothes for press features and editorial shoots, I haven’t been on the runway for years.

The last designer I walked for was Gavin Pierre Medford and that was long long ago, just before my modeling career ended rather unceremoniously, and most of you know why! But I said yes, anyway. Will tell you more once everything’s finalised. And these are the only two pictures I have from the last runway I appeared in.


This is a picture of me kissing fashion designer Gavine Pierre Medford at the Kerb Magazine launch party. I think he must have heard that I got stuck in the middle of the runway during his show, shivering and unable to move. Well, it all seems like ages ago. I am very lucky to have successfully battled my dangerous dependency on drugs (mainly) and alcohol. Now I stay away from booze and junk, and only allow myself a glass or two of wine once a week. Now that’s discipline!
