Douglas Perrett’s “Wild Things” Book : Makeup-less Models from Casting Pola’s
You are used to see them on the runways or on your favorite glossies, but how do they look without makeup at the beginning of the career ? I would say prettier and innocent. Casting director Douglas Perrett of COACD released a book called «Wild Things» in which he unveiled Polaroid pictures from 2000 to 2010 of future models at their first castings. Watch trailer below
