*As Derek Zoolander will tell you, it's hard being really, really, ridiculously good looking... and poor auld male models in Vietnam are peeved because they don't get as much cash as the chicks: "male models struggle to make ends meet in an under developed industry plagued by gender bias..." or so says this article in Thanh Nien, sublimely titled: The Adonis Dilemma.
Binh Minh said, “In most shows, we only function as a foil for the girls. We can't change our status. Yet, we still remain on the catwalk due to our love and dedication for the art of fashion..." while the reporter ponders... "how long it will be before Vietnam invests sufficiently to address the industry's gender compensation gap and wholeheartedly promote its local Adonises to the world."
Sometimes it is hard to be a man. As well as really, really, ridiculously good looking. But I'm sure a few Orange Mocha Frappuchini will cheer them up.

* The Minsk Club's famous victory over the Drink team is reviewed with no bias whatsoever by that outrageously handsome midfielder Richard 'the Boy' Rastall. Could have been a model if it weren't for his love of nature, a pint of bitter and a pack of tabs...
