Yes, secret’s out. Patrick Demarchelier, born and raised in France, speaks English with a French accent. And as far as we’re concerned, most of what he said during the shoot and at panel was perfectly clear. Kayla, on the other hand, struggled to understand him during her individual shot. “I think he’s speaking English to me, but I’m not really sure,” she said. Aside from being a tad dismissive, it didn’t seem too difficult to decipher what the photographer was looking for (for one thing, Esther had just done it). And even if Kayla struggled to pick up on a few of the words, Patrick was doing an actual demonstration for her while giving the instructions. Instead of asking for clarification, Kayla just sort of stared at him blankly. Patrick handled it well, though, when he said to Tyra — in perfect English, mind you — “Sometimes they look at me like I speak Chinese.” Win.
