Sessilee Lopez is one of the hottest models in the game right now, and that’s possible thanks to the support of her mother, Janice Celeste. Janice has recently penned a book called Making a Supermodel, which is a parents guide to the modeling industry:
“I am writing this book because I want to help other parents help their daughters become high fashion models,” she writes. “Parents often message me on Facebook to ask for advice on how to get their teens into modeling, and many have no idea what it really takes.” Celeste started her daughter off when she was just 12, and used her last pay check after she lost her job to take her daughter to New York to go on open castings.
Celeste even dishes on crazy extremes that she’s witness models experience to stay thin:
“I’ve seen some life-threatening measures models have gone through to lose weight. Luckily my daughter has never had a weight problem that kick-boxing couldn’t solve. I personally know of one model who dipped cotton balls in orange juice and consumed it to feel full. Later it came out that she had anorexia.”
