The working life of a model is actually pretty gruelling – the working life of a YEEZY model is completely insane.

For Kanye’s Season 3 show, the models – of which there were 1000, directed by Vanessa Beacroft – were given a set of strict instructions.

Model rules are kind of a norm, but we’ve never seen anything like this before…
