Renee is likely my all time favorite model (if one must choose a Number One favorite). There were other wonderful models: Carol Alt, Christie Brinkley, Dayle Haddon...several more.

A part of being a great model (too me) included being a nice person.

All those I mentioned here are lovely human beings as well as being excellent models.

Modeling is a strange business with a shield of arrogance to protect fragile egos. These girls remained warm, and kind throughout, sometimes, trying circumstances.
