Admit it - you played dress up with your mom or dad's clothes when you were a little kid. But if you still love dressing up and even practice posing in front of the mirror, then maybe you should be doing it professionally!
Models - Model Behavior
Do you love wearing designer clothes? Do you love striking cool poses? Do you love to hear flashbulbs popping all around you? If you answered yes, then you've already got the makings of a model. Models' careers don't last very long, so you need to start out when you're young. Girls should be between 15-22 years old, but guys can start out a little later, around 18-25 years old. Modeling is a tough industry because it requires specific physical characteristics. You should be tall, with the minimum height for girls being 5'8" and guys being 5'11". Even if you don't tower over your classmates though, it doesn't mean you're not cut out to be a model. Just look at Devon Aoki - standing at only 5'6", she's known as the world's shortest supermodel!
Models - Make Your Mark
There's more than one way to break into the modeling industry, so take your pick.
Do nothing, as in walk around the mall, go to a concert, or hang out at the beach in hopes that a modeling scout will discover you. Many lucky bums have started their careers this way, but it's pretty rare.
Attend a modeling agency's open casting call, where you'll be among hundreds of other model hopefuls.
Make an appoinment with an agency. If they like you, they'll sign you right away.
Try out for one of those modeling reality shows like America's Next Top Model. Maybe Tyra and her panel of judges will see that you're an undiscovered supermodel in the making!
Models - Strike a Pose!
If an agency likes you, they'll put together your portfolio (a book of your photos), a composite card (a single sheet of photos with your information so that a prospective employer can remember you), and a resume. Whenever you go to a go-see (modeling job interview), you'll have to take all of these along with you.
Models - Did U Know?
There are two types of fashion models - high fashion and commercial. High fashion modeling is an art form of fashion. They model haute couture (extravagant, hand-made garments), walk the runway and appear in mags like Vogue and Elle. Commercial modeling includes catalogue, print, calendars, billboards and newspaper ads.
The '80s and early '90s was known as the "era of the supermodels." The five great supermodels during this time were Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford.
Super skinnyKate Moss sparked the new style of supermodels called the "waif" look.
The highest paid model in 2005 was Gisele Bundchen, who earned $15.2 million.

So I have been best friends with this girl for six years, after Halloween she has not called me, answered my calls, or come over to my house (we live close to each other and go over to our houses all the time). I don't know why she hasn't talked to me and shes the type of person if you did something to make her mad she would tell you. I don't want to call her (it may seem needy) but I have a bunch of her stuff at my house and I really just don't want them there anymore but I don't want to call her have a huge fight and avoid each other ( which would be really hard) forever.
This is really true and sad... Many teens, have a problem with this because of society. This post helps. I have had problem with suicide and bullying. Ive felt like I should just end it because I have no point to be here because I'm being told I'm worthless, to fat, to dumb, not pretty enough, all tons of lies and i got to the point that i believe them. I'm an outsider in my school. It fells like a lot of people leave me. I fell pain a lot. and There is bullying going on in my school. Life fell mean less a lot. I have to remind myself that I do have a point and that people do love me. I know know I do have a reason to live and so do you guys so Don't ruin you're life. You're to young. You're to worthy. The bully are just jealous of you. Don't self harm tonight. Don't comment suicide. You all are worth A lot I promise. People love you. Don't worry about hatters. The hatter are gonna hate but lovers are there to help you trough the pain and if you did comment suicide imagine how they'd fell. Thanks for posting this it really helped me and really could've saved a life:) :) Bullies are just having problems themselves remember that!!!! Stay strong everyone!!!

It feels like no one cares about me at school. I really can't trust anybody either. I started to quit eating at home and at school only eating snacks every now and then. I am also losing Weight. I used to get called fat and i wasn't even fat. I have been abused by people who say my butt is smexy and huge and it's not. I have even been slapped on by them. I tell my mom and dad that i've been called fat and my dad ignore's me and continues whatever he's doing. I'm getting to the point again where i'm losing my temper and emotions right on the spot. I can't be bipolar cause it has to run in the family and my mom says i don't have it. People get mad at me when i don't laugh at their jokes when they expect me too cause i really don't listen. But when i say something funny they roll their eyes and give me mean looks. I don't even want to be around people that much. I just want to be outside in the fresh air during school but it's high school so their's no outside time. I also fake smile's at people to make them happy. But i just hurt on the inside. I just want advice.
I'm sure you have people who care about you at school, just sometimes it's hard to see it.
Dear, you have to eat. I assure you, you're not fat. (smexy isn't necessarily a bad thing)
You have to understand, that people say things just because they can, or to make themselves feel better. Never give them that opportunity, just ignore them.
When you're about to lose your temper, think of something that makes you really happy.
If you need someone to talk to, you have your guidance consular, trust me I have social anxiety, and reallly hate talking about my problems, I find it easier for me, to message them. It's their job to listen, but not only that, they really care for all of their students. Talking helps, believe me.

No Ma'am you shouldn't.
Things happen for a reason, normally to make others stronger.
Trust me, nothing is worth taking your own life. If you need to talk I'm here, however I would suggest you talking to an adult.
Friends come and go. you have family, and if not, you have me,
Trust me, it's not worth it. please, don't.
