Miss J's new book, Follow the Model: Miss J’s Guide to Unleashing Presence, Poise and Power, includes a story about how he was denied access to a Fashion Week show one season. He arrived at the show and a tall man told him, “I’m sorry to do this to you, but I’ve been told they really don’t want you here.” Miss J left without flying into a rage. When he later encountered the same tall man at a different event, the man told him the PR firm instructed him not to let Miss J into that particular show. Miss J writes:
I still don’t know why I was shut out of that show As fate would have it, the same Brazilian designer later begged the producers of ANTM for two weeks to do our final runway show for cycle twelve with them in Brazil. All I have to say about that is God don’t like ugly, and Rosa Cha was such a a [sic] better choice and a total dream to work with.
This is why bitchery in fashion doesn't always pay. You never know when the person you treated like crap may suddenly be more famous and powerful than you.
