What’s It Really Like To Be A Model

Being a model is something almost every girl has a sneaking hidden dream about somewhere at the bottom of her heart. On the other hand, there are some successful models, who when still teenagers didn’t even suspect of becoming models as they grew up. However, being a model is not that easy as it may seem, since starting from childhood, most of the models happen to face a range of difficulties, a range of complexes and a range of problems to be overcome. For some of them it’s their being different because of being tall and slim, for others it’s the matters of look like wearing dental braces, for others a totally different thing. But one thing is for sure; neither the beginning nor the continuation of the modeling career is an easy task. This is what the models themselves confess!

Another thing that unites all the models is that special moment of triumph when the world of fashion sees and recognizes them and firmly states that they do belong there. For instance, one of the most highly-paid and successful models of nowadays, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley noted during an interview that her first intention when thinking about the world of fashion was modeling. And the modeling career was what she aimed for when first getting in touch with the fashion people. Still, it was at that very moment that she started to transform from an ordinary teenager to a bedazzlingly gorgeous supermodel.
Starting at quite a young age many of them are facing problems like feeling isolated when dealing with people, who are much older working with them, constantly giving instructions, surrounding them with way more attention than required, etc. Another everlasting matter almost every model is forced to face is the juggle of career and personal life. The next thing is when they are trying to separate themselves from parents for the first time, shaping their individuality and placing a barrier between them that looks like a “shop window” as Edie Campbell described it.

Many models emphasize the importance of having someone to rely on when you need a shoulder or a “rock” to lean on. For instance, Karlie Kloss noted about seeking support whenever she was alone in a hotel when she was taking her first steps up the ladder of success. As for Jourdan Dunn, she recollected being in a panic when seeing the poor condition of the models’ apartment when she first happened to be staying there.
However, there are still lots of advantages that the modeling career may represent. One of those is the ability to exercise, eat properly, and take care of body for just keeping fit. This is what many of the models like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Karlie Kloss noted when talking about their career.
So as we see, being a model is not a cup of water! Still, it does include fun, enjoyment, moments of excitement, and a huge proportion of glam surrounding the models and that’s some of the things the models love most about their job bravely accepting all the other challenges their job constantly puts forward for them!
