Body Part Model – What It Takes To Be Body Parts Models! Model requirements, particularly the physical aspect, can be pretty intimidating; after all, one needs a complete package of height, weight, measurements, good looks, and a variety of other details in order to get noticed. Still, there are some models who only need to be ‘perfect’ for certain body parts.
The most common body parts models are hand models and foot models. Hand models have access to a wide variety of products, from jewelry to common household stuff like medical supplies, food, and others that need to be held for advertisements. Beauty products like nail polish, lotions, and creams are also excellent examples of hand modeling jobs, and this is also applicable for foot models. In addition, foot models can model shoes, flip-flops, and other foot accessories (such as bracelets). [Read More...]

Womens clothes – What size really is plus size? In the last piece about plus size modeling, I mentioned that there’s a discrepancy when it comes to plus size models and the actual, real-life plus size. What’s more, retailers and fashion brands have variations when it comes to their sizing charts, which indeed adds further to the confusion. So, what really is plus size? Let’s examine this category in greater detail.
Modeling Sizes – Sizing up the charts
For the sake of convenience, most people and retailers consider plus size clothing as an umbrella term to encompass clothes made for sizes 12 and above (in terms of US sizing). The equivalent in the United Kingdom (UK) starts somewhere in the size 14 range, though some only start at size 16 or 18. Size 16 is the equivalent in Australia of US size 12, and that’s where the plus size category starts in the Land Down Under. [Read More...]

With some fashion brands spinning off or specializing in plus-size clothing lines, there has become a need for models that can pull off those clothes. These lines can in fact be traced as far back as the 1920′s in North America, with Lane Bryant catalogs already including items marketed toward plus-size women.
Some decades later, model agencies started representing plus-size models, and they broke through the scene in the middle to late 1980′s. Today, even the top agencies have plus-size divisions, although Ford Models did close its own in the middle of 2013 in order to put more focus on its main editorial divisions. [Read More...]

The Smashing Success of Gisele Bundchen
If you thought that Sean O’Pry’s $1.5 million earned over a one-year period is already a lot, you should see what Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen hauled in over a similar span: a cool $42 million based on the Forbes list, ahead of even the annual earnings of top athletes like soccer’s Lionel Messi, the NFL’s Tom Brady (to whom she got married in 2009), and the NBA’s Kevin Durant.
Of course, that figure is apart from her earnings as a model, as Gisele also has a bunch of endorsement contracts along with some other business ventures. Let’s take a quick look at Gisele’s career, shall we? [Read More...]

It’s no secret that the modeling industry is highly competitive and extremely challenging. That’s why one can only marvel at the success enjoyed by top male model Sean O’Pry over the past few years.
