Educating Lisa

You learn something new every day. This morning we got an email from Columbia University informing us that the uptown Ivy League institution "has become the educational hub for successful fashion models who want a rigorous education that mirrors their rigorous careers." Wow, okay. Who knew? But just who are these models? It turns out doe-eyed Lisa Cant, she of two consecutive Italian Vogue covers by Steven Meisel, Cameron Russell and Sara Ziff are all currently enrolled there. And apparently the industry's crush on Columbia goes back to 1957, the year Ford agency co-founder Jerry Ford graduated. So hats off to you, Columbia, for helping make fashion a less dumber place.
