Model Woman: Eileen Ford and the Business of Beauty (English Edition) Kindle电子书
“Ford’s status as a controversial, demanding figure isn’t ignored in Lacey’s portrait of one of the hardest working women in fashion. The juicy details of a tell-all are met with the nuance of a memoir in this portrait of the woman he recalls as the ‘matriarch of modeling.’” (New York Observer)
“A high-powered page-turner.” (Daily Beast)
“Unputdownable ... left me not only full of admiration for her achievements but also rather liking her....Lacey weaves riveting narratives into his account of the life of Ford ... with an eye for detail and juicy anecdotes.” (Financial Times)
“Exhaustively and painstakingly researched, yielding a biography that serves as a testament both to this woman’s professional prowess as well as her personal life….In the world of fashion related biographies, this surely ranks up there with some of the best.” (New York Journal of Books)
“A fascinating look at the woman who, perhaps more than anyone, shaped our ideas of what it means to be a sophisticated American beauty.” (People)
“Culled from countless hours of interviews... Lacey diligently maps the agency’s explosive success and skillfully intertwines the glitz and cutthroat melodrama of the modeling world with Ford’s shrewd, intimidating business strategies, uncanny vision, and ability to merge beauty with fame.” (Kirkus)
“In the fascinating Model Woman, author Robert Lacey paints Ford as an intriguing paradox….A wholly entertaining, insightful and slightly bitchy look inside the moneyed world of modeling.” (BookPage)
“An intensive look at a highly competitive business, with fabulous turf battles and clashing egos among the biggest names in fashion.... A compelling portrait of a savvy businesswoman who transformed the modeling business.” (Booklist) --此文字指其他 kindle_edition 版本。

Good job, Robert Lacey.
The book gets into great detail on her bio + how the agency got started and how it functioned in its first 5-10 years. The detail wanes off when the author gets into the 1960's and beyond. It leaves the reader really wanting more than what is written. The reader learns about how the Ford Agency tried to quash Casablancas from opening in New York and in Paris. The Ford Agency really stomped on anybody trying to open a modeling agency and for the longest time, the Ford Agency was a monopoly. Then ultimately, Casablancas - as did many others - did open an agency in both places.
What this book lacked - and what I thought it would include - was more interesting information and details about the models that the agency worked with. Details about how the bookers worked, how they coordinated a model's schedule, a week-at-a-glance or day-at-a-glance of a model's typical schedule....and of course, more stories about the models. There's a few sentences about a booker at Ford whom Eileen considered the best in the business who left to work for Casablancas' agency Elite. But no back story about why she was the best booker that Ford had other than she handled Cindy Crawford. There are some stories in the book about Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell, Cheryl Tiegs, Christie Brinkley, and some others -- but just to whet your appetite.
Towards the end it covers Jerry's death, the sale of the agency, and then Eileen's death really quickly. It was like "Jerry didn't feel good, went to the hospital, then died a couple of weeks later..." The last 1-2 chapters is a skim-through -- kind of like the author just wanted to get it over with.
I guess I was expecting more "logistical" information about modeling and with the stable of models that Ford had during its heyday, I thought there'd be more model-stories.
The book still is interesting and offers a glimpse into the steel-iness of Eileen Ford which was balanced by her behind-the-scenes husband Jerry.
