How young is too young for girls to model?
World’s first supermodel worries what could befall 13-year-old Australian
By Mike Celizic

Janice Dickinson was the world’s first supermodel, and she doesn’t care how adult and graceful Australian model Maddison Gabriel looks on a fashion runway. At barely 13 years of age, she’s just too young, Dickinson said.
“There’s lots of drugs, there’s lots of alcohol, there’s lots of photographers preying on these girls,” Dickinson said Tuesday on TODAY. “Thirteen is way too young.”
Maddison turned 13 on Sunday; she was still 12 when she was chosen as the “face” and official ambassador of the Gold Coast Fashion Week in Australia. At 5 feet 7 inches, the blue-eyed girl has the looks and the moves to model clothing — some of it provocative — designed for women two and three times her age.
“It doesn’t matter about the age,” she says with adolescent insouciance. “It matters that you can do the job. I can fit into women’s clothes. I can model women’s clothes, so I should be able to do it.”
“Well, there’s babies on TV, isn’t there, doing commercials,” says her mother, Michelle Gabriel, who has been wildly criticized in Australia for allowing her daughter to start modeling at such a young age. “You tell me. What is too young?”
The Gabriels were in London when they made those statements recently. Maddison can not work as a fashion model in Europe, though; the age limit for runway work there is 16.
And Dickinson said that she will not allow any girls under 18 to model for her agency.
“I have about 32 girls who are dying to break that 18-year-old mark,” she told TODAY co-host Matt Lauer. “Get your high school diploma and then come and see me.”
Dickinson knows what she’s talking about. Born in 1955 in Brooklyn to parents she’s described as dysfunctional at best, she went to Europe to become a model in the 1970s and catapulted to stardom.
She also leaped into the world of Studio 54, alcohol, drugs and indiscriminate sex, once telling Howard Stern that she had slept with at least 1,000 men.
Dickinson, who still looks spectacular at 52, is sober now, the owner of her own modeling agency and a judge on “America’s Next Top Model.” She also appears on “The Surreal Life.”

Janice Dickinson Defends Hewitt In A Bikini As Healthy: "Tyra Banks Is Fat"
The Today Show is not one to miss an opportunity to show off the Jennifer Love Hewitt bikini pictures.
They continued the streak today by inviting Janice Dickinson, the self-described first supermodel, and discussed whether a size 2 is fat. Janice defended Hewitt, called her "healthy" and "not emaciated." She continued, "You want to see someone who's fat, I'm sorry, Tyra, Tyra Banks is fat." Banks used to be Dickinson's boss in the early seasons of "America's Next Top Model" and has herself been the subject of unflattering bathing suit photos.
After she was confronted by Al Roker about the remark, she sort of backed off, but it's unclear is she was being genuine.

Janice is runner up
“Oh maaaaaaaan!” Janice was pipped to the podium by Jungle King Biggins.
Branded a “big, bold and beautiful lunatic” by Katie, Janice Dickinson is one contestant that we won’t forget in a hurry.
And with a rat bite and record 10 Bushtucker Trials under her belt, we have a feeling that the experience made a bit of a mark on the lady herself too.
“I thought it was a holiday,” the former supermodel barked as she bounded back from the jungle. “I thought it was a spa, and I thought I was going to get a shot at him!” she added, pointing at Dec.
“I’m sort of a room service kind of girl, or so I thought. I feel like I’ve really conquered some fears.” And she couldn’t have done it without the support of our hosts with the most.
Yes, after cracking on to Dec, nicknaming Ant “Junior”, and finally conquering those cockroaches in her final stunning Trial, Stake Out, was Janice really that terrified as she shrieked, “I can’t eat croc d**k, are you insane?”
“I meant it,” she insisted. “There was no acting about it, otherwise I would be in Hollywood."
And did The Dickinson think that she’d romp all the way to the final?
“Noo!” she hollered at the boys. “I’m elated. I got this far, I’m grateful to the people of the United Kingdom… A rat came onto my bed and took a chomp. I got beaten up, knocked over, bowled over and bitten.
“I didn’t think I’d make it through anything. I equate this to the delivery of my two children – the most difficult thing I’ve ever experienced in my life.
“It’s been the biggest, most extraordinary experience in my life and I’m so grateful for everything I’m A Celebrity has given me.
“God save the King!” she bawled, as her interview wrapped and she leapt towards the bridge.
'Here here!' we holler, and bottoms up to the both of you.
