A perfect hat-trick in world football (soccer) is described as a trio of goals scored by one player using the left foot, right foot, and head. In the case of magazine publishing, then a perfect hat-trick could be said to be a trio of solo editorials in a single issue with three different models represented by a single agency. Got that?
