Answering a Reader Question #252

Lydia Whiting Wrote:

Hey Dania!
You have heard it a million times but I would LOVE to be a VS model! this is a recent realization but now it's on my mind I can't shake it! I am 16 years old and the only measurement I know is my waist which is 24, my cup size is c/d and my hips are in proportion but yeah I don't know the exact measurement right now. I am all the way from New Zealand so there isn't much opportunity for modelling where I am, however I do some casual runway stuff, that doesn't require you to be stick thin. can you check out this pic to see if I should try and really chase this idea? Because for me, it is an expensive dream!

I hope you can help,

Hi, Lydia! For your privacy, I removed the links from your post here but unfortunately, it publishes them when I accepted your comment on my other blog post. Anywho, your Facebook links didn't work for me...it may be your privacy settings. If you'd like to connect as friends on FB so that I can view your pictures with no problems, you can find me at this link: www.facebook.com/dania.denise1.

Because you don't know your complete measurements, I can't say for sure what your chances are for VS but you sound like you definitely have the curvy body type. Are you signed to an agency in New Zealand? My best recommendation (if VS is your ultimate goal) is to get signed to an agency in your country (if you aren't already) who has experience acting as a "mother agency," which means they have the connections to place you with agencies in other countries. If your agent in New Zealand thinks your look would be suitable for the New York market, they can look into submitting you to Elite or Ford in New York and having you travel and live there for work. That would be the most cost-effective way for you to get to the USA to be possibly considered for VS.

If you need more help with your specific situation, email me at: daniadenise@gmail.com and I can go into more depth about your options. Hope that helps!
