We asked some of our favourite people in the industry a few questions about themselves.
First up fashion stylist Verity Parker…
1. What do you do?
I am a freelance stylist/fashion editor, working with lovely and talented people on a day to day basis!
Premier Model Management, one of London’s best and most loved modelling agencies, is looking for an office junior and social media hack. The ideal candidate should be almost obsessed with the modelling side of the fashion industry, have a comprehensive knowledge of international media and magazines, be a keen follower of blogs and social media that surround it. Having a good knowledge of WordPress would be a bonus – if not, the ability to learn fast and adapt is key. You will need to be able to string together sentences to create fun and insightful blog posts.
We’re looking for someone young, bright, exciting, with oodles of personality – a go-getter that is hungry to learn and grow our social media platforms. There will also be some office admin tasks (like many jobs), but we want a team player who is eager, positive and enthusiastic.

What a week for tabloids like the Daily Mail!
Angelina this and that and that and this, will she have her ovaries removed in due course, wedding to Brad imminent, formula 1 speed type of celebrity support tweets… I mean at some point I had to scroll down, until oblivion it seemed, to find my usual favorite daily-celebs like the “ever-shrinking” Abbey… Give her a break please, the girl is simply trying to make it into “The Posh and Becks” olymp, and as perfectly demonstrated by Posh, you gotta be skin and bones in order to even stand a chance. And it worked for Posh, didn’t it?
Having said all that, the above rant does not mean I don’t think Miss Jolie isn’t heroic, I just find it funny how the gossip columns seem to have very little else going on if they need to “butcher” this story like they did.
I mean don’t they have their hands full with Miley’s on-off engagement, Leanne Rimes’ yoyo effect and the Jessica Simpsons of this world? – I am ranting. I am stopping.
