Eileen Ford revolutionized the modeling industry more than 60 years ago when she founded Ford Models. Together with her husband Jerry, Ford established practices that transformed model agencies into the organized businesses they are today. Christie Brinkley and Cheryl Tiegs are just two of the famous faces she shepherded to superstardom. Having thrived in a trade built on presentation, no detail is lost on Ford. At 88, she is immaculate. Long red nails and double-strand pearls accent her dark knit pantsuit. Over an Earl Grey tea, Ford casts her eagle eye on today’s model industry and reveals how she stays on top of her game.
