Sarah Doukas of Storm Modeling Agency: The beauty spotter
She saw the dog first. A few months ago, Sarah Doukas had nipped into Knightsbridge for a lightning spot of lunch-break shopping, when a comely canine caught her eye. "That dog was just gorgeous," says Doukas. "And when I looked up, so was the girl walking it. So I stopped her." Doukas swooped and now that girl, 16-year-old Anya Taylor, is signed to Storm Models. "We're doing incredibly well with Anya," reports Doukas, "and she's acting and going up the movie path, too."
Spotting Anya is the last time Doukas felt the tingling thrill that comes when she sees a face in the crowd that she knows might make it as a fashion model. And Doukas's facility for scouting models, while not unerring (she recently brought back a handsome road sweeper to her office, only to have him rejected by her men's team) is as good as anyone's in the business.
