Elite Modeling Agency Cuts Models and Bookers

Maybe the hair wouldn't be so bad if her right eye
wasn't half-closed?

We've heard a lot lately about layoffs at fashion labels, but little to nothing about cuts in their sister modeling industry. But agencies aren't immune to the downturn either. A model friend tells us Elite cut 25 models and 3 bookers. We have no confirmation at this time, but it's sad news if true — modeling is a hard-knock life as it is. If anyone has more details, e-mail us at thecut@nymag.com.
