Test Shots of Miranda Kerr, Abbey Lee, Arizona Muse & More
Supermodels before they were supermodels from Wild Things book.
Can you imagine a time when Miranda Kerr was upstaged by an unknown blonde, a world away from superstardom and the 2.5 million Fantasy Treasure Bra? Or what about when Chanel Iman wasn't the eternally bubbly and confident person she seems to be but just a kid in need of a hug? Forthcoming book Wild Things: COACD Go Sees 2000 - 2010 showcases the private Polaroid collection of Douglas Perrett, founder and creative director of casting agency COACD. Taken between 2000 and 2010, the test shots by Perrett himself (and edited by Kathy Lo) feature some of the biggest names in modeling, along with Perrett's first impressions of the girls; some of which aren't as venerating as you might imagine compared to their successes now. The title of the book takes its name from the hastag Perrett used when uploading the Polaroids onto Twitter, which were a hit. The result is a collection of snapshots of young girls not yet sure of themselves and their place in the industry. Unfortunately for us, Wild Things will not be available to the public as it has been created in a limited run of 250 copies exclusively as gifts for COACD's client list, however some of the images are available online including one of the late Daul Kim, with whom Perrett bonded:
