Are You Physically Fit to Become a Top Fashion Model?

Welcome to your first lesson about modeling. Some of these things may seem silly and irrelevent but believe me, you NEED TO KNOW THIS!

Although I am the first to admit that there are exceptions to every rule, below you'll find some of the attributes you need to have (or can learn) to become a model.

As in any industry, there is usually a fine line between success and failure in modeling.

To have a chance of becoming a successful model, you first need to think and act like a professional and successful person.

An example: When a weekend golfer comes to a large area of water and has to hit over it, many times the thought pops into his head, "I sure hope I don't hit it in the water!". As soon as he says it, the mental picture raises its ugly head visualizing his hitting the ball right in the middle of the pond.

You know what happens next?

You're absolutely right! He hits the ball in the water!

On the other hand, a professional golfer comes to the same body of water and she visualizes the ball floating effortlessly to the other side (or on the green). Does this make sense to you?

Once you begin to see yourself as a successful model you'll start doing the things to make it happen. Sounds easy, doesn't it? Well, it does require work but so does working a 9-5 job.

So, now that you're visualizing yourself as a successful model, let's get to some basics you must know ...

The Physical Requirements of Modeling

If you plan to model, especially as a high fashion or runway model, you need the following physical attributes ...

a) You need to be at least 5'8" tall or taller
b) Your body weight and proportions need to flatter your height
c) You need to have a good skin complexion without lots of pimples or blemishes
d) Your hair should be in good shape (no excessive split-ends or over-dying damage)
e) Your teeth should be well taken care of, straight and white (a dynamite smile)
Look closely in the mirror and be honest with yourself. We all have limitations. Some of these things listed above you can work to improve and some (like height) you were born with.

Even if you don't have all these model attributes, don't give up hope. There are other opportunities in modeling not mentioned in this article.
