Answering a Reader Question #253
but chanel iman started out with Ford from LA and not new york right? and didn't she become a VS model from the LA ford? then got signed onto Elite as a VS model. I just want to know because I don't want to move to new york! D:
Chanel Iman is an exception to the VS requirements because she was already an established supermodel. If you are a new model that is not yet known or who hasn't done a lot of top caliber work, you have to follow the standard requirements of being signed to Ford or Elite in New York. Having previous/current star power always allows some models to skip over certain requirements and automatically get considered for VS. You'll notice that 99.9% of the VS models who don't fall under the VS requirements/guidelines (i.e. being signed to other agencies in or outside of New York) were already popular and famous by the time they were hired to work for VS. Hope that helps! :-)
