Our answer is eventually you probably would want to. A modeling agency can help you to get work and represent you for potential modeling jobs that are required by clients. However, as a result of the internet, a large number of glamour or nude models now are able to work freelance with their own websites or portfolio hosting sites to generate leads for work. If you are only looking for fashion modeling, work it is highly, unlikely that you could earn sufficient to live on without any agency representation.

High fashion and catalogue modeling applicants Ladies please wear high heels, wear no makeup.

Why do models have to be tall and slender?

For both aesthetic and practical reasons, that’s the longtime standard in the modeling industry. A tall, slender body is considered a better "hanger" for a designer’s clothes, both on the runway and in front of the camera (which really does add pounds). Clothing samples are cut to fit tall, slender bodies. For girls, that usually means clothes cut in sizes 4 to 6, fitting for a girl with a minimum height of 5 feet 7 inches. For guys, jacket sizes run from 40 to 42 and clothes are designed for who are minimum height of 5 feet 11 inches. Occasionally, an agency will accept shorter models (especially teenagers who wear large shoe sizes and have tall parents, in hopes that they will continue to grow). Some agencies also have divisions for petite and plus-size models, but the client demand is less for those categories.

What is commercial modeling?

Commercial models come in all shapes, sizes and ages. Some commercial models are gorgeous woman/ handsome men, and beautiful children, and many successful commercial models look just like everyday people. The individual who has the greatest chance of being chosen to appear in an ad is the one who can believably look like a mom, doctor, business person, plumber, student, grandparent, teacher, dad, etc. The best part about commercial modeling is that it is not necessary to have that “perfect” look in order to be successful.
