Once again, watching Mad Men, I was struck with a “hey I know that face …” during the finale episode, Tomorrowland. This time the face was Carolyn Jones, the fired Topaz pantyhose model.
I know that tight face… those pursed lips. That “I’m a model!” attitude!
It’s Cassie (or Cassandra Whitehead, now known as Cassandra Jean
), who first became known when she left season 5 of America’s Next Top Model because she refused to get her hair cut. As Tyra said, repeatedly, she wanted Cassie to have Mia Farrow’s hair cut from Rose-mary’s Bay-bee (pronounced just like that). Despite the opportunity to get the cut done by a very expensive stylist, Cassie refused, wanting to return to pageants.
Well I guess it’s worked well for her. Seriously, 2 minutes on Mad Men? Far more successful than any past ANTM contestant. Right? Nothing else is coming to mind …
