Answering a Reader Question #246
Hi! I am 18 and i wanted to know if i had a chance to become a VS model! i have always loved watching the fashion shows and every time i have watched them i always want to be a VS model! i have also always like watching americas next top model! I have never modeled before though so i have no experience! i am also 5'6 and I am athletic and play sports so i am in good shape and skinny. But, i have always had somewhat big thighs does that matter!? and i dont really know my measurements either. i have brown hair, brown eyes, and im just an american girl, and i have tan skin! I have been told by many people that i am gorgeous and i could model if i wanted to but i never really believed them. but now i would like to model! do you think i have any chance of being able to be a VS model!?
Hello, Evan! Unfortunately, at 5'6" you are currently too short to be considered for VS modeling. The height requirement for that type of modeling is the same as traditional high fashion and runway, which is between 5'8"-6'0". So unless you end up growing to at least 5'8" VS won't be an option for you. :-(
However, if you're still interested in modeling, I would recommend pursuing commercial/print, which is what you're the ideal height for, according to the industry standards. It is important to know your measurements (bust, waist and hips in inches). The best way to do this is to go to a seamstress and have your measurements taken. Once you know those numbers, memorize them because that's the main information all agencies will ask for in addition to your height and age, among other things.
