Hand model Ellen Sirot has long been a huge name in the commercial modeling business. So when Sunday Morning interviewed her, it was bound to be interesting. What I didn't expect, however, were posing lessons where Ellen teaches her interviewer how to make her hands "seductively snake-like" and admits that she views her hands as "elite athletes." Check out the video below for a peek into a totally different world; if nothing else, you'll learn how to apply hand cream . . . sexily.
Ellen Sirot is one of the most in-demand models in the business, but you probably wouldn't recognize her face. That's because Sirot is a parts model, using her hands, legs, and feet to land clients including Clinique, Maybelline, Estee Lauder, and Elizabeth Arden. (And that's only a minuscule sampling of the thousands of jobs she's done!) Her new line of hand-care treatments, Hand Perfection, was developed after years of caring for her own money-making mitts.
