Fashion is the pinnacle of live modeling and what many aspire to achieve. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most selective with the majority of models required to be 5’10 or taller and to have a thin frame. Once in this category, you might be invited to walk the runway, pose for a catalog shoot, model for editorials in magazines or be hired directly by a designer.
This subsection encompasses advertisements. From lip gloss to tennis shoes, print is a bit more forgiving in terms of look as different looks sell different products. The options are as varied as the models are, ranging from corporate sales to alternative clothes so common online. It may not be haute couture, but it is abundant.
Finally, even if your main features don’t fit the ideal in the above categories, there’s always the chance you have one breathtaking asset, like your hair, legs, hands or feet. Not all runway models are gifted with photographic digits, leaving it up to these models to sell rings, watches, sandals, hair products and anything else that requires extreme close ups of body parts.
