Jessica Stam Advises Models to Be on Time

Jessica Stam Warns Models to Be on Time For Fashion Week

Jessica Stam may now be one of the modeling industry's biggest faces, but the beginning of her career was overshadowed by a serious punctuality problem.

"One time, years ago, she was all dressed and lined up for the runway when, to James Scully's horror, she disappeared," wrote The Cut's Charlotte Cowles after attending an advisement panel Stam attended for 27 of IMG Model's Fashion Week newcomers. "They had to hold up the entire show while they mounted a panicky search; she was eventually found in line at the Starbucks across the street. 'I don't know what I was thinking,' she said. Scully eventually forgave her, and now they exchange Starbucks gift cards at Christmas. 'Still, don't do that,' she warned. 'I had to earn a lot of people's trust back.'"

David Cunningham, IMG's vice-president of development, said the event was "a bit like summer camp orientation, isn't it?"
