There is always someone who wants to be the next Gigi Hadid or Kendall Jenner, but despite what the movies tell us, becoming a model isn’t just about having really good looks. It’s about having the uniqueness, talent and drive to back up those assets. In this article, we will give you some tips that will hopefully teach you how to be a model.

KNOW THE TYPE OF MODELING YOU WANT TO DO

The first step in becoming a model is knowing what type of modeling you want to specialize in. There are quite a few areas to choose from–print focuses on magazine editorials as well as advertising campaigns. While runway models walk the catwalk for labels. There are also more commercial options such as being a swimsuit or catalogue model. Plus size modeling has made an impact in the recent years too. No matter which area you choose, most female models start at the very minimum height of 5’7″ but closer to 6’0″ is preferred.

FIND THE RIGHT AGENCY

Now that you have figured out what type of modeling you want to do–look for an agency that specializes in your field of choice. You can search online for agencies easily. A simple “model agency” query on Google will garner a lot of results. Search for an agency that’s close to where you live. So for example, if you live in Los Angeles, make sure that agency has offices near by. It’s also important to remember to research an agency first. Think: What models do they represent? What type of jobs do they book? Are there any complaints online about this agency?

And remember, if an agency asks for any money upfront, you should stay away. So called “modeling” schools and packages are also suspect as well. In addition, be on the look out for people who claim to be a part of a reputable agency. If the email or message is not from an official account, make sure to contact the agency on their official website to confirm that person works there. There are plenty of scammers out there looking to take advantage of young people.

TAKE THE RIGHT PHOTOS

After you have researched the right modeling agencies for the field you are interested in, you will want to contact them. Most agencies have forms online where you can send in your photos and stats. Stats include your height, measurements and weight. They will also want to see images of you. Don’t worry, you do not need to get a professional photo shoot done. Simple digital photos are what most agencies require. Make sure to do a head shot and full-length shot. Wear no makeup and a simple tank top and pants. Take the photo in natural light so people can see your features. Look for a response within (typically) 4 weeks.

Some agencies will do open calls, where they will see aspiring models from the street. You can usually contact an agency and inquire about their open call schedule. Make sure to bring your digitals or past professional work printed out. Once again, keep your styling minimal. Remember that even if you are not what they are looking for, keep hope.

SOCIAL MEDIA & MODELING

One important thing to have in today’s modeling world is a social media presence. There are plenty of brands that will not consider casting a model in a campaign unless they have a sizable Instagram following. Likewise, if you are able to build up your social media presence, a big modeling agency will be more likely to sign you. Girls like Jasmine Sanders, Alexis Ren and Meredith Mickelson rose their modeling profile thanks to their Instagram engagement. So how do you go about building up your Instagram following? Make sure to be active, commenting on popular Instagram accounts and update your own page at least three times a week.

If you are lucky enough to get signed, you should also be aware of all the difficulties that come along with the job. Depending on the jobs you book, traveling can take you away from home a lot. Rejection is also something, especially at the beginning of the career, you need to get used to. Even if signed, some models still have part-time jobs to make it. This is why we recommend having a backup plan just in case your modeling career doesn’t pan out. However, if you manage to make it, there is a world of opportunities. Models like Gisele Bundchen, Tyra Banks and Iman have transformed their looks into lucrative careers with their business smarts. Always, think ahead!

Gigi Hadid Joins Forces with Missoni for Their Fall 2017 Campaign

Fashion

Gigi Hadid continues to be one of the most popular models in the world. She constantly appears in many photo shoots for popular and luxury brands and announces new collaborations on almost a daily basis. Her newest achievement is the campaign that she did with the Italian fashion house Missoni, for their Fall 2017 collection.

The photographer behind the vibrant photo shoot is Harley Weir. The cool outfits that Gigi appears in were styled by Vanessa Reid. From what we could see from the released pictures, Missoni’s style is the perfect match with Hadid’s personal chic style. This is probably one of the biggest reasons why the 22-year-old supermodel is such a good fit for the campaign. The footwear seen on the ad shots is also by the Italian brand. Angela Missoni and her team opted for a very natural look for Gigi. The model has almost no makeup on her face, but she shines with a very soft glow and lets the clothing do most of the work.

The designs show a very unique and colorful side of Missoni. In the pictures, Hadid shows off her fun and feminine side. All of the designs are very bold and contemporary and do have that recognizable Missoni vibe. They carry very distinctive geometric and striped patterns that are mostly in strong and eye-catching colors. Although this striking mix might be a little too much for some people, all of the trendsetters are going to fall in love with the outfits.

In Gigi’s background, you will notice images of the Monte Rosa, which is a huge mountain massif that is a part of the Pennine Alps. The photo shoot took place in a very small hill village called Brunello that can be seen from the Monte Rosa. Brunello is very close to Varese and is the same village where Angela Missoni owns a house. That house was the chosen spot where the magic happened.

Aside from wearing all-Missoni outfits, Gigi also promotes their new eyewear collection. Knowing her love for sunglasses, this was probably the part of the shoot that she enjoyed the most. The cat-eyed frames are definitely going to be one of the biggest trends for the upcoming season. The jewelry featured in the advertisement photos is by Joseph DeMeo. We are going to have to wait until September, when the whole ad campaign will be released.
