Trying to break into the â€œbiz but don’t know where to start? Kym Canter, creative director of J. Mandel, penned Star Von Bunny A Model Tale , an adorable tongue-in-cheek look at how a small, furry, unconventional-looking model made her way into the inner circles of fashion and Hollywood.
The book serves as a true rags to riches memoire of Star Von Bunny, a stuffed animal hailing from Hallmark, who steadily and confidently paws her way to supermodel status.
In the book, Star divulges secrets to breaking into the industry, offers health and beauty tips, favorite L.A. hangouts, and even shares personal photos of herself with high profile rock star, designer, and celebrity friends (including Bono, Beyonce, Nina Garcia, and Christie Turlington!).
Here are some of our favorite quotes from the book:
â€œAfter checking out the competition, I start to realize I have something the other girls don’t: floppy ears, furry pawsâ€¦They understand my unique type of beauty.
â€œStart kissing up the hairdresser and the makeup artist, since they are responsible for making you look beautiful on the shoot.
â€œâ€¦I refuse to date anyone under two feet. A girl’s got to have standards.
Star’s story is an inspiration to all. So next time you’re feeling a little dejected, just reach for A Model Tale and remind yourself that if an 18 stuffed bunny from the bowels of Hallmark can do it, then so can you!
