Celia Holman Lee exclusively told Goss.ie how social media has changed modelling.
Last weekend she was crowned Most Stylish Ever at the Peer Mark VIP Style Awards 17 years she won the inaugural awards ceremony.
The 67-year-old has attended the fabulous event every year since and shared with Goss.ie how she has seen the modelling industry change she started in it at the age of 15.
“Social media has done so much wonderful things for the industry. The models nowadays can sell themselves. They can work themselves, you know? Which is a fantastic thing”
“Put a profile out there. Build a profile. Become famous on the internet or Whatsapp and next thing everybody is looking to book them. We never had that.”
“I depended on the newspapers and the odd TV show to say ‘I won the VIP Style Awards’ and VIP magazine as well of course.” She continued by saying, “I think the graft was harder [then], having said that, the only thing is the competition is vast now!”
The agency owner also gave her top three tips for summer style this year: “Loads of floral, low to the ground and loads of 40s influence!”
