Beckford: 'Celebs Shouldn't Muscle In On Models' Jobs'
Male supermodel TYSON BECKFORD has slammed the media for using celebrities in high fashion campaigns instead of models - insisting actors aren't beautiful enough to naturally look good in glossy print.
The Make Me A Supermodel host isn't impressed with the current trend for movie and TV stars to land advertising deals or grace the covers of glossy magazines.
But the hunk believes the fashion industry will come full circle - when they get sick of retouching the images of less-than-perfect stars.
He says, "You have to do a lot of tweaking and airbrushing to get the same from a celebrity that you would get from a model. A lot of celebrities - I'm gonna tell you right now - they're not 5'11"; they're not a size two to fit into these designer dresses, but the designers want exposure so they're willing to make the specific dress for that actor or actress to get them to look good on the cover."
"It'll all come back around. One day some designer will wake up and say, 'You know what? I don't want to use Gwyneth Paltrow. I want to use Adriana Lima, I want to use Gisele (Bundchen), I want to go back to the high fashion.' I think slowly but surely you'll see that start happening."
