Answering a Reader Question #101
OMG! Im 15 and i am Dyinggggg to be a Victoria Secret Model. Im 5'11' though and i feel like i'll never stop growing !!!!! So i guess once im done i'll be too tall :( But gosh I want to be one Soo Bad. I Live in NYC any advice ?
Hi, Kristin, thanks for the questions! As long as you don't get taller than 6'0", you'll be fine. You can't model for Victoria's Secret until you're 18 so you've still got a few years before you can pursue that. In the meantime, however, you are the perfect height and age to start doing fashion/runway and editorial modeling. Your first step is to get an agency to sign you so that you can officially begin your modeling career. The fact that you live in NYC works to your advantage since that puts you right in the middle of the action.
There are plenty of great agencies in NYC that you can look into getting signed with. If you want to have a shot at Victoria's Secret later on, you may want to first submit to Elite and Ford in New York so that you'd already have an established career and portfolio through them by the time you turn 18. These two agencies are the main ones that VS recruits their new models from. But even if you don't get agency representation by either of them, as long as you sign with a top fashion agency you could still have a shot at catching the eye of someone at VS if you have the look they want.
If you need help finding agencies to submit yourself to, shoot me an email (you can find it on my Blogger profile page) and I'll help you out.
