Survival of the prettiest: The mysterious power of attractive people

“As the owner of a boutique modelling agency in Vancouver, Liz Bell has to be careful about the dazzling women and men she chooses to represent. Looks are paramount, she concedes, but in an industry requiring poise, tenacity and punctuality, character is important, too. “Once you’re in the business, everybody’s beautiful,” she says. “You have to have qualities like gratitude and humility and trustworthiness. If you don’t, the clients will forget about you pretty fast.” So, after sifting out the visual gems from the scores of portfolios she receives each month, Bell interviews applicants and their parents at her Coal Harbour offices, listening and watching for warning signs.”
