Quote of the Day (Jennifer Sky, on Wolves Who Chase Models)

“We’d be invited to a fashionable club, and GiGi would be introduced to a guy twice her age who would soon disappear. The guy who dumped her this time didn’t even have the decency to call. This man was known to date only models. In the years to come, I would watch ‘modelizers’ become part of the pop culture canon—Mr. Big, in an early episode of Sex and the City, was even suggested to be a modelizer. They were sold as capricious fellows, just doing what fellows do. They were promoted as heroes and conquerors for bedding those elusive creatures called models. But that day, I was only a teenager comforting another teen with a broken heart.” —Jennifer Sky, “On The Prowl: Models and The Men We Dated,” The New York Observer, February 24, 2014

The “modelizers” featured prominently in this article are Leonardo DiCaprio and Hugh Grant. Among others, past and present, according to this Huffington Post article from last summer: Mick Jagger, Adam Levine, Johnny Depp, Richard Gere, Rod Stewart, George Clooney, Seal, and Eric Clapton.
