The day got off to a slow start with traffic at a stand-still around the The Madison Hotel, causing almost the entire crew to arrive later than scheduled. As soon as everyone got to the suite, they launched into a frenzy of preparation. The model, Abbey Sowick, was primped, coiffed and prettied up, dressed in an impossibly glamorous Gucci iridescent feather pencil skirt and delicate see-through mesh body suit.
