industry models

Everyone has an opinion on “booth babes” — but here’s what they actually  have to say about the job

  • It wasn’t easy finding promotional models — or “booth babes,” as they’re better known — at 2017’s Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.
  • For more than a decade, half-naked women in costume were a familiar sight at the most high-profile annual video game event, but lately, they’ve become less popular. Driven by concerns over harassment and the appropriation of geek culture, the press and the community have pushed for an end to the industry practice.
  • But the models are still here — and they want you to know they’re not the helpless victims or the talentless interlopers people say they are. Read more (7/20/17)

With Gigi Hadid’s recent photoshoot at Kennedy Space Center, spaceflight once again is the backdrop for fashion photography. Photographers in that industry have found the allure of space technology irresistible since the dawn of the space age in the 1950s.

Famous fashion photographer Richard Avendon photographed world-renowned supermodels such as Domiva, Isabella Albanico and Jean Shrimpton in front of rockets, sights around Cape Canaveral, and even a Mercury-era spacesuit during the late 1950s and 1960s.

Gigi’s shoot occurred around Kennedy Space Center’s Visitor Complex in the rocket garden, Moon theatre and other locations.

All the photos above - including Richard Avendon’s from the early space race era - were shot for Harper’s Baazar.

The models and photographers from above:

gemini mars: “pirates of the caribbean” (jack sparrow is a character that’s easy to be allured to but difficult to trust. never seems to be who he appears and covers everything up with slurred antics), “seven psychopaths” (comical murder film where even has a darker or lighter side than you thought), “the prestige” (two illusionists go head to head to out-trick another. the huge secret of ‘duality’)

leo mars: “hot rod” (acts like a big shot, always attempting to prove himself worthy), “guardians of the galaxy” (everyone has a major ego and wants to show off. music reminds me of the 80′s which reminds me of hair which is leo lmao), “frank” (i feel like many would believe this to be a more aquarius film with its long-standing reputation of being one of the most unconventional films of all time but the film is about fame, how to get there, how to stand out, and being histrionic in the making) 

virgo mars: “pay it forward” (actions geared toward helping others, insecurities and not wanting others to feel sorry, a need for efficiency), “captain america: the first avenger” (modest, just wants to contribute. high energy, lots of stamina ‘i could do this all day’), “cyberbully” (theme of words cutting deeper than you’d think)

scorpio mars: “heathers” (conniving & hypocritical. veronica isn’t a saint herself but disproves of people who are cruel and sets out to teach them a lesson), “mr & mrs smith” (secretive. both know they’re spies but never tell each other & don’t feel neither has the right to be; in the same field of work but criticize each other for it), “django unchained” (rescue and revenge. will exploit anything or murder anyone to get back to his lover)

sagittarius mars: “maidentrip” (a young adventuress sails across the world)“artifact” (documentary film giving insight into the truth of the music industry. pretentious, pseudo-intellectuals), “the believer” (heavily controversial film. audacious in the name of beliefs and what one believes to hold verity)

pisces mars: “snowpiercer” (sacrifice, clairvoyance, spiritualism. as pete travers said, ‘a slambam sci-fi thriller with a brain, a heart and an artful sense of purpose’), “fight club” (gasp. shocking it isn’t aries mars, right? the story is about a man wanting to escape his everyday life, has an addictive personality, and finds himself immersed in this extracurricular activity), “philomena” & “of mind and music” (one defines true forgiveness. looking past all the tragedy and finding the beauty) 

Career Astrology
