The pioneering model agent Eileen Ford died yesterday. My friend Neal Hamil and I were scheduled to have lunch with her this past December and sadly I had to cancel, I was snowed in.
When I started at Vogue as the Bookings editor (models and photographers), I was in my early 20s and Eileen looked out for me. I traveled far and wide with her and Jerry as a judge for their Ford Supermodel of the Year contest, and she thanked me in Hermès scarves. Frank and opinionated, I always knew where I stood with Eileen, which was refreshing. Christmas lunch at “21”, parties in their brownstone, and weekends in NJ. The end of an era.People
