If you feel like there are a disproportionate number of extremely tall, lithe, good looking people on Nicollet Mall this week, it's true. They're The Models. Pros from New York have descended on the Twin Cities this week to prep for Glamorama, which happens Friday at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis. More than a runway show, Glam is like a Broadway production requiring a lot of coordination, glitzy numbers and plenty of dancing. (Models will not only shake their booties - they are allowed to smile.) Poor things, they'll be working long hours on stage, in fittings, with hair and makeup all week. Many tell me they live a bit like hermits while working - early to bed, nothing stronger than milk to drink.
They're here all week, so dress nice, get a blow out and be ready to cross to the other side of the street to avoid an inferiority complex.
