i’m not joking, it really isn’t. it’s damn hard work!
i know this because some of my best friends are models. some are even supermodels. but i’m not going to name drop, let’s just get on with this post.
i stumbled across a new magazine in cape town the other day. it’s called max and it’s an industry mag that the modelling agencies are using to showcase their models.
here’s the cover of the first issue:
i think it’s a good idea.
lot’s of people think it’s very easy to be a model. but it’s not. it’s very hard. you have to be very pretty and thin, and very resillient, and take rejection well, and go to zillions of castings, and be very good at standing still and not eating and having your hair look nice, even when it’s raining outside. seriously i really do have a lot of respect for great models. it’s hard, tedious, challenging work.
you have to be able to strike lots of different poses, and understand how to control and move every inch of your body, and have a very expressive face.
look here, this is one of the models they are showcasing.
this is her looking pensive:
(and maybe needing a wee?)
then this is her looking happy:
(and maybe a little crampy?)
and then this is her looking sad:
(and also maybe lifting her leg, because she had to fart. i’m guessing they didn’t have any ‘nice’ brand toilets on set.)
