Well, isn’t this a juicy little item.
Every week WWD chats with an up-and-coming model for it’s “Model Call” column. Sometimes the interviews are boring, and sometimes models say things they shouldn’t. Today’s piece involves the latter. Here’s the delicious bit of knowledge unintentionally dropped by 21-year-old Kel Markey:

You think they’d do bare-bones since only us models would see it, but it was really nice upholstery and luggage racks and all this beautiful wood paneling. I guess when Marc does things, he does them perfectly.
