I think this text is about Use the title, pictures and all other outstanding things to predict Out of the Frying Pan into Attire By Rebecca Gonsalves 1 When Alexander Beck, 17, went on a shopping trip to Cambridge he had no idea that events that day would change his life in such a dramatic fashion. He was about to enter a bookshop with friends when a stranger shouted out to him: “Stop, I love your face.” The rather forward stranger was a modelling scout, Ceasar Perin, who saw something in Beck that he knew would be perfect for the world of high fashion. 2 A month later, the seventeen-year-old put a hold on his studies at Newport Free Grammar School and threw in the towel at his £6-an-hour side-job. He posed for a series of portfolio photos, which were sent to international fashion houses. 3 Mr Perin knew his instincts had paid off as labels clamoured to book the new face. The teenager could swap the drudgery of manning the deep-fat fryer at his local fish-and-chip shop for a life of international glamour as a model. “All the labels, including Gucci, wanted to book Alex, but Prada booked him exclusively,” Mr Perin said. After Milan, the scout took his protégé to Paris, where he appeared on the catwalk of Dior, as well as those of Yves St Laurent, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Raf Simons and Acne. 4 A model’s life is something of a change for the low-maintenance teenager. He confessed: “I used to get up 15 minutes before my school bus would leave and didn’t take time over my appearance. I never thought I was good enough to be a model.” The Independent, 2011 32 EXAM PREPARATION - GENERAL STRATEGIES - KBL
