It was only a matter of time before some plucky entrepreneur — or, in this case, two — came along to disrupt the modeling industry. According to a "Page Six" spy, the Winklevoss twins were overheard at photographer Ben Watts's "Shark Attack" party this weekend, pitching One Model Management's Scott Lipps on the idea of paying models in the oh-so-stable currency that is Bitcoin. No word on whether this ill-fated plan will take hold, but we suppose it beats being paid in trade.
