Well well well, Tatiana the Anonymous Model Blogger has just outed herself over at Jezebel, and it turns out our mate Patty Huntington was right all along - it's none other than American born, New Zealand raised model Jenna Sauers. But even better than that, she's from my own hometown Christchurch - and, if I'm not mistaken, she went to Rangi Ruru - the most expensive private girl's high school in town. If you haven't been following the A.M.B., she's basically been like a voice for the myriad of voiceless girls worldwide who model in the industry. Topics of blogs range from eating disorders to sleazebag photographers and everything in between.
It's been an entertaining and sometimes profound reading experience, and I salute Jenna Sauers for what she has done. In a witty, honest and at times bewildering article entitled I Am The Anonymous Model, Sauers explains who she is, how she got started in the industry and what she's made of her experience. Please read it, I promise you'll get something out of it. Yes, she's a bit high brow in her choice of words (some would call it eloquent? - most Rangi Ruru girls I know are), and yes she's a bit of a literature snob (some would call it well read?) but there's nothing I love more than a story about somebody's real life journey, and this is one of the best I've read in ages.
I can't wait to hear what she has to say for herself next.
I LIKE YOU!
