Scene: I'm walking through the National Hall, looking for my stadium seat at Vivienne Westwood's Red Label Show. I have to make my way through a rabid pack of people who are not paparazzi. I'm not sure what they're doing, or why they're banded together, or why they're all young girls. Suddenly, I realize they've descended upon Lily Cole, not you know who, and they're asking for her autograph. If, or when, you meet your favorite model, or any model for that matter - would you ask for his or her autograph? We've never really understood the concept of an autograph anyway, but it seems all the stranger when applied to models. No one in the office would ever ask anyone to sign a piece of paper, though Natalie can understand asking someone like Kate Moss, who's more rock star than model anyway and Carson (our new intern!) would just want to talk. When I met Kate, I kind of whimpered hello, and when I saw Doutzen I just gaped - they're my favorites and yet I never thought about asking for their signature. So if you've got anyone from Stephanie Seymour to Ali Michael in front of you, what do you do?

MTV just turned 30, and to honor the music channel which helped to give musicians faces and personalities, here’s our roundup of the 30 best (and strangest) model/musician pairings through the years.
