Answering a Reader Question #245
Is it possible to be a VS model even if you have stretch marks?
Hi, Anonymous! It's not easy to answer that question as a straight "yes" or "no" simply because there are different factors that could play into whether this could be possible or not. For example, if the stretch marks are only minimal and easy to cover with body makeup or if it is in an area that can be concealed with the clothing/lingerie, then chances are it should be okay. But if the stretch marks are extensive and contrast very obviously against your natural skin color then chances are it wouldn't make you as much of a candidate for VS modeling.
Since you have to be an agency represented model in New York to even be considered for VS, you'd first have to be accepted by the agency with your stretch marks. If you end up getting signed with your stretch marks as they currently are, that is a good sign that VS would be able to work around them, should the agency submit you for that type of work.
