Answering a Reader Question #264
ive wanted to be a VS model since i can remember.im not perfect like the VS models but i am thin.im 17 and only 5'6. do you think i have any chances?any advive?
Hi, CourtneyVR! Unfortunately, you don't meet the height requirement to be a VS model. At your age, you're more than likely done growing and the minimum height to be signed to Elite and Ford in New York to have a shot at being considered for VS is 5'9", which is actually one inch taller than the standard 5'8" minimum for fashion modeling. Odds are you won't jump an additional 2-3 inches by the time you're 18. :-(
Instead of trying to pursue VS modeling, I would recommend that you look into agencies in your area that represent commercial/print models. This is the type of modeling your height makes you eligible to do. It won't put you on the runway during Fashion Week but it will get you into catalogs, magazine advertisements, billboards and other print publications. So try your hand at getting signed to an agency for commercial/print and see what happens!
