Last Hurrah

If one is going to introduce the hideous notion of the end of summer, best to do it with a musical romp and perfume wafts. Over the weekend, Rufus Wainwright and Norah Jones—along with Rufus' sister Martha Wainwright, who belted out material from her new CD of Edith Piaf songs—did just that with Last Song of Summer, an intimate concert in Bridgehampton, sponsored by Viktor & Rolf Parfums...

Hint's model editor Joseph Tenni has a quickie Q&A with Elettra Wiedemann, who, besides spokesmodeling for Lancôme, also happens to be the daughter of Isabella Rossellini, a brainiac who's getting her master's at the London College of Economics and the founder of the JustOneFrickinDay charity...

What is your favorite thing about modeling?
The characters I meet and get to hang out with.

Least favorite?
The TSA at the airport and incessant annoucements during a flight. I've never once seen anyone buy duty free on board, so stop talking about it!

What is something about you that people would be surprised to learn?
Um, that I wanted to be a vet, but couldn't handle the idea of putting a family pet down or failing the test and becoming a meatpacker. So I studied international relations instead.

What's your favorite place to visit and why?
My house in the country. Because it's beautiful and quiet and full of dogs.

Describe your style.
Comfortable and probably not as elegant as it should be.

What's on your iPod?
Lots of music and Family Guy episodes.

Model Behavior

Rogan, Giambattista Valli, Phillip Lim and Chris Benz, among others, have created limited-edition tees to help build the first solar-powered hospital in Burundi, the poorest country in the world. Starting today you can buy them for only $60 at JustOneFrickinDay.com, a charity founded by Elettra Wiedemann—yes, the model and daughter of Isabella Rossellini, but did you know she'll also attend grad school in biomedicine this fall?...
