Hamster Model Master “Blue Steel”
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
According to his manager, Christian the hamster has finally gotten down the most fabled look in modeling.
"He did ‘Blue Steel,’" says Len Perlstein. "We were shooting for the Sears fall catalog, and all of a sudden he just does it. It was like someone sucked the air out of the room. Time stood still. It was glorious."
Long considered the most challenging look a model can master, “Blue Steel” has evaded some of the most famous names in runway fashion.
"No one’s done it correctly since ‘86," says Perlstein. "Christian’s just a special hamster. Now, if I could get him to lay off the pellets, that would be amazing."
