Answering a Reader Question #56

Spacegirl Wrote: Hey is there such a thing as being to tall to model VS? I am 186cm which is just over 6' and i am the measurements required, i also have longer legs than torso which i think is what they look for? The issues for me are that I am from New Zealand, and in no way afford to go to New York for a casting with an agency. I am also 22, and is this too old to begin modelling? I wasnt really into it untill recently being spotted by an australiasian fashion label, but I have no work but a few runways under my belt. What are the chances for a girl like me? Hello, Spacegirl and thanks for the questions! Because you've got a couple of questions in one, I will break them down one by one and do a Q&A format so that it's easier to answer and easier for you to read. So here we go! Q: Hey is there such a thing as being to tall to model VS? A: Think about it this way: VS models are recruited only if they are signed with a modeling agency so that means you first and foremos

The Reasoning Behind My Poll

For my avid "Modeling 101" readers out there, you've probably noticed my new poll, asking where you are reading my blog from. Before you get creeped out, let me put aside any fears that I'm going to be showing up on your doorstep in the middle of the night. Lol. For some time now I've been blogging, sharing my insights, resources and advice about how to get into the modeling industry. You, my beloved readers, have more than likely learned a lot about me and I want to know more about you! I was thinking along the lines of a "meet and greet" type situation where we could all sit down and I can answer your questions in person and in turn you can get to know me face-to-face.

In addition to that a professional photographer was on hand with an indoor studio setup to capture each of the models' looks so that the students could have images to begin building their portfolios with (and for the models' use of course). There were about a 10-12 students and as many models. If the time limit was used wisely each student would have the chance to do a makeup look on at least 3-4 models. Some students managed to achieve their looks easily while others weren't as fortunate. The session started early that morning and due
