“Moana is great and such a role model to me. She realizes her
responsibility on the island at such a young age but still has the
desires to explore the sea while still keeping her dedication of leading
her future people”
When you live with different girls all the time, swapping roommates every month or so, you get used to different characters. But most models have all experienced a few stereotypes.
The Anorexic Model: The one who basically never eats. Always concerned with their weight, always weighing and measuring themselves, counting calories. Yes, eating disorders in modelling exist. And yes, we’ve all seen them. And lived with them.
The ‘Healthy’ Model: The one who is OBSESSED with health. Always at the gym, always stressing how important it is to be healthy and not starve. They always eat clean. And are usually vegan.
The 'Party’ Model: Out every night. Every. Single. Night. Still (somehow) manages to get to castings and jobs, is friends with a lot of people, sleeps with a lot of male models, drinks a lot, smokes, is usually in their late teens. Quite a few of these, you’ll find, are underage.
The 'Homesick’ Model: Stays home a lot. Is always on Skype/FaceTime. Always talks to their parents. Always talks about their family. Usually underage. On a lot of occasions it’s their first time overseas.
The 'Working’ Model: The one who is always working. Books a lot, makes a lot of money, is really close with the agency. The one who everyone wants to be. Never home, doesn’t have time to party or do anything but work. Living the dream.
The 'Stupid’ Model: This girl sucks. She somehow manages to use up her weekly pocket money halfway through the week, buys a lot of dresses, is quite likely Russian, doesn’t speak much English. She’s very nice and loved by most of the other models. Very young. Very naive. Goes out quite a bit, goes for the experience.
The 'Rich’ Model: Somehow always has money. Is probably drip fed by her parents. Or has a credit card. Because lets be honest, if she can buy a gym membership AND groceries in one week, she’s got some other way of getting money. That agency pocket money doesn’t do shit.
The 'Food’ Model: Somehow manages to eat lots of junk food and not gain anything. Usually 13-15. We all pray she will get fat by the age of 17.
The 'Motherly’ Model: Takes it upon herself to take care of all of her roommates. Gets concerned, drinks fancy wine, talks about all of her experience. In her 20s.
If you are a model you probably know of a few. You are probably also one of these people.
Time to introduce the last category: Me taking photos. Starting with my friend Jess, who is just an amazing Cosplayer. I mean look at her! She has this super smooth skin that doesn’t even need post-editing.
‘It is crazy that Kendall’s candids are usually better than her print work, however it isn’t the photographers fault that Kendall cannot deliver when it comes to doing the job she is paid to do. Like these are world renowned photographers who have proven that when shooting the right model, they take stunning pictures. So no, magazines shouldn’t use her candids, Kendall should listen to constructive criticism and do a better job, after all, she’s the one that wants to model.’
