(1)Model is a male or female that promotes an product,agency,event,clothing line,etc. There are different types of model including, Print,Fashion,Swimsuit and Promotional. They come in all sizes and ages. Females usually have to be 5'7 and higher for most modeling and for males about 5'9 and higher. Although Print models have no height requirements. They build up portfolios and create comp cards to be booked for modeling jobs and the payment is reall good depending on the jobs you can and how much experience you got.

Male or female- from infants and above. There are many types of Modeling- Runway, Print, Commercial, High fashion/editorial, Plus, Promotional, etc. All models are NOT skinny, and it is VERY frowned upon in the Modeling industry to have an eating disorder. Runway models have to be certain measurements. Print models do ads and such. Commercial models fit the average looking person who can also work in commercials. High fashion/editorial modeling is basically modeling for things like Gucci, Versace, etc.- all the big name brands. Plus models are those who are bigger than the average/usual measurements. Promotional models do promotions.

And Believe it, Modeling is NOT an easy job. Models are definitely not dumb and they have to have thick skin to face criticism from agents, designers, etc.
I've been modeling since I was 13 years old. I thought it would be easy, but was I ever wrong. 2 years later, I really enjoy doing it and it's what I love.

Modeling is a job for women, girls, children, men and men, starting with infants. Unlike popular belief modeling takes alot of hard work. There is alot of rejection involved. Also you have to dicsipline yourself to stay in shape and handle the pressure of audition and jobs. Alot of people think you can just become a model. It takes alot of hard work. You must get a comp card, create a portfolio, find agencies and management etc., and go on many auditions until you finally get a job.
Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks are very successful models

good-looking people hired by creepy employees to make normal people feel like a fatass. Children get the worst of it because in some cases, pedophilia occurs. Some fucked-up stuff can happen during modeling.
Man, I wish I was a model. But I'm too ugly.

Models are people who work their ass off to make money and sell you clothes.

Contrary to the popular belief that ignorant jerks share, no we are not all anorexic or bulimic. Yes, it is a hard job.

We're talking nine hours of extremely uncomfortable poses, thick makeup, hot studio lights, exhaustion, and no lunch breaks.

As for runway shows, we are talking insanely high heels that no human should be able to walk in and live, but somehow we manage. These shows take all day to prepare for and once again, no lunch breaks.

Now for the emotional stuff. We have to stay confident, face rejection, and face the jealousy (no matter how undeserved) of our peers.

Next time you say being a model isn't hard, think again.
Idiot: LOL, that girl thinks modeling is hard!

Model: Um, excuse me? how about you try it?
*tries it*
Idiot:Holy..... i had.... I didn't know.... I don't think I can move my legs...

Guy: Look at that girl over there!

Guy2: Oh yea, I heard she's a model!
Guy: DANNNG, hot, and she works her ass off!!!

an exxtremely gorgeous, unique beauty who can make anything look good. the only great models are the ones who can look gorgeous without their hair or make-up done, rolling out of bed in the morning!
examples of those models: Giselle B., Heidi Klum, Daria, and yes, Paris Hilton are all true, unique beauties that dont need anything to look great.
