What Do Models Worry About Before Big Shows? Let The Industry’s Biggest Players Fill You In

GGG

Do you think modeling is easy? Well guess what…it might look easy, but here’s a great overview on the realities of modeling and what it’s like prior to a big show or event. Refinery29 gives us the scoop:

When said out loud, “Fashion Week” has a double meaning — and for anyone who’s ever been a part of all the action, feeling weak is not only par for the course, it’s often the reason we love fashion to begin with. So, in honor of the moments of chaos, beauty, and excitement that made us feel weak, we present My Fashion Week-ness: a compilation of accounts from some of the industry’s biggest players. They’re spilling their most memorable stories from Fashion Weeks gone by, and the ones that keep them coming back for more.

When a model complains, it’s often kind of hard to feel bad for them — right? There are the free clothes, the ad campaign paychecks, and their Instagram accounts make it seem like they’re on vacation every other week. But model Martha Hunt is here to tell you that what goes on behind the cameras can either make or break young hopefuls who are just starting out. And getting to the status of living that jetsetting, glamorous existence one might assume a model lives often comes after to a lot of rejection, and, of course, one big break.

Millie Bobby Brown, of STRANGER THINGS, Signs With Major Modeling Agency

mill

If you haven’t watched Stranger Things on Netflix, you don’t know what you’re missing. And for those of us that love the 80’s, it’s a throwback to your childhood! With that in mind, star Millie Bobby Brown, just 12 years old, has signed on with a major modeling agency. As reported by People.com:

At just 12 years old, Millie Bobby Brown is already in the midst of a career that would make an actor three times her age neon green with envy. After sky-rocketing to major success thanks to a starring role as a young girl with some mysterious telekinetic superpowers on the hit Netflix sci-fi series Stranger Things, the actress quickly became a fan favorite, appearing on every talk show, red carpet, and Halloween costume of 2016.

It also didn’t take long for her to become a fashion darling – she’s taken  a meeting with Louis Vuitton’s Nicholas Ghesquière, landed the role of the new face of Calvin Klein by Appointment as reimagined under the fresh creative direction of Raf Simons,worn custom Armani to the SAG Awards and scored a front-row seat at Fashion Week. So it was only a matter of time before she landed a major modeling gig – and it’s now official that she’s signed with IMG.

 

Those obsessed with the new generation of supermodels currently walking will likely recognize this particular modeling agency as the very same one that represents quintessential millennial It-Girls Bella and Gigi Hadid. But the most photographed sisters on the planet (after the KarJenners, of course) better keep a close eye on their coveted Vogue covers because there’s a new style star in town looking to slip into their stilettos.

You’ll still have to wait a few more years to see Millie actually walk the runway at fashion week, given that she’s four years below the age regulations put in place for designers by the CFDA. But until 2010, you’ll see Brown on the agency’s “Talent” roster, alongside beauties like Julianne Moore, Liv Tyler, and her Netflix co-star Winona Ryder. So while you may not see her strutting her stuff at Paris fashion week anytime soon, we have a feeling some more high end campaigns will be coming her way in the very near future.

Ashley Graham Says She Felt Like an “Outsider” in the Modeling World

MAIN

From Shape.com

Ashley Graham has been schooling everyone in body confidence throughout her career, but things haven’t always been so easy for the famous model.

ASH

Ashley Graham is undoubtedly the reigning queen of body-positivity. She made history by becoming the first curvy model on the cover of Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Issue and has since been promoting awareness about #beautybeyondsize and encouraging women to love and accept their bodies just as they are—cellulite and all. But despite her charismatic personality and confidence, Graham didn’t always feel so comfortable in the industry that she has successfully taken by storm.

In a recent interview with V Magazine, the supermodel opened up about how she’s felt like an “outsider” in the modeling world and the difficulties she’s faced for not conforming to society’s ideal beauty standard

How Supermodel Maggie Rizer’s Definition of Beauty Has Changed Since Motherhood

moth

As reported by Stylecaster.com:

On November 8, while CNN angrily debated Election Day forecasts and your aunt posted hourly anti-Trump memes on Facebook, model Maggie Rizer ever so quietly staged her own protest with a very bold, and very shocking move: She split from her agency, Trump Model Management, after a seven-year partnership. “I cannot wake up Wednesday morning being the least bit related to the Trump brand, win or lose,” she wrote when she broke the news via an Instagram photo. “I owe it to myself and to my children to proudly stand up for what I believe in, and that is a world where Donald Trump has no voice for the future of our country.” And with that, Rizer severed ties and left.

how

In case you’re not a model, let us break something down for you: Models do not just leave their agencies. Models do not leave strongly worded Instagram photos about their ex-agencies unless they’re cool with never booking another job. But then again, most models are not Maggie Rizer—one of the “it” supermodels of the ‘90s; the freckled, all-American girl who regularly shared Vogue covers and Milan runways with Kate Moss and Christy Turlington; the face of Clinique and a regular on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show runway. Today, 39-year-old Rizer sits atop a platform of hard-earned credibility and respect, with a new, guiding priority in her life that makes the decision to part from her agency definitively easier: her family.

Lily-Rose Depp Admits Modeling Career Easy Thanks to Hollywood Nepotism

famous

No this isn’t a shocker…despite having a fabulous gene pool, it certainly doesn’t hurt to have famous parents…when it comes to pursuing a modeling career. As reported by CelebrityDirtyLaundry:

Lily-Rose Depp’s modeling career is pretty easy, thanks to her famous parents Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp and massive Hollywood nepotism. In fact, the 17-year-old admits that her job is a walk in the park thanks to her special relationship with fashion icon and Chanel creative director, Karl Lagerfeld. Lily-Rose even says that she’s best friend with Karl, mostly because of his friendship with the young teen’s mother, Vanessa Paradis.

Many models in the industry work long hours just to get recognized by the industry’s top designers. But that’s not the case with Lily-Rose Depp. She recently opened up about her special relationship with Karl, telling InStyle UK magazine, “He makes you feel really comfortable. Once he gets what he wants and once he knows he’s got the shot that he wants, you’re done so it’s not like you have to slave away all day for one photo because once he knows that he has got what he is looking for then you are done.”

As reported by Vogue:

2016 made it clear that what it means to be a male model is changing. With social stars, celebrity sons, and street style’s elite all infiltrating the industry, the past 12 months have been full of shake-ups and surprises, from the rise of Vine star Cameron Dallas to an influx of model-musicians. Take a look back at the moments and the guys who defined the year in modeling.

2015 may have introduced the world to Jordan Barrett, the Australian Leonardo DiCaprio look-alike who has taken modeling by storm, but this year offered him the chance to share more than his good looks with the world. Racking up campaigns for Roberto Cavalli, Balmain, and H&M, while jet-setting around the globe to splashy events like the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Barrett documented it all on his addictive social feeds. Maintaining a presence as a personality in addition to posing for photographers like Steven Klein and David Sims, Barrett struck the right balance between work and play—a trick that has paid dividends for female models like Gigi Hadid and Joan Smalls.
