Dear Celebrities, Tyson Beckford Is So Over You

Tyson Beckford: "You have to do a lot of tweaking and airbrushing to get the same from a celebrity that you would get from a model. A lot of celebrities — I'm gonna tell you right now — they're not 5'11"; they're not a size 2 to fit into these designer dresses, but the designers want exposure so they're willing to make the specific dress for that actor or actress to get them to look good on the cover.... One day, some designer will wake up and say, 'You know what? I don't want to use Gwyneth Paltrow. I want to use Adriana Lima, I want to use Gisele [Bündchen], I want to go back to the high fashion.' I think slowly but surely you'll see that start happening." [AP]
