Hi, I was wondering if you would be able to tell me what Jet Magazine likes to see in a Jet Beauty. I would like to be a Jet Beauty and I would like to make my submission as competitive as possible. Can you please give me some pointers? Thank you, B
Hi, B! The great thing about being a JET Beauty of the Week (BOTW) is the fact that they don't have any specific physical requirements. My best advice for you is as follows:
- Follow the submission instructions to a tee! The submission guidelines say to submit photos that are ready for publication or in other words, professional quality. That means don't send in snapshots taken with a regular point and shoot. They ask for 4 full body photos and 1 headshot...that's a total of 5. Do not send 4 and don't send 6.
- Be sexy but tasteful. JET is NOT a men's magazine. That means choosing swimwear that is flattering to your figure and shows skin but not so much that you wouldn't show it to your parents. Avoid G-Strings and other skimpy styles, as well as poses that look more raunchy than modelesque.
- Don't go overboard on the hair and makeup. Natural beauty that is "enhanced" by makeup and a nice hairstyle is always appreciated by Jet .
I hope that helps and good luck to you!
