And yes, thats me in the Alexander McQueen show in Paris just a few weeks ago.
"It could be affect on girls` future in fashion."
Does anyone else feel that there`s something wrong with this sentence?
"vv Uh-oh, don`t tell Iroj...
drat fashion models and drat the fashion industry. It`s all 100% crap. All the women are forced to shape their bodies into something nasty to look at, and all the "clothes" are no more clothes than rap is music. Fake, thrown together nonsensical garbage.The entire fashion industry needs to burn to the drating ground."
rotflmaoI was beginning to miss Iroj`s rants. (:I didn`t know she was a model. Is that her in her pic?
Honestly, you guys are worse than girls. Try not to be so butt-hurt about that one popular chick lookingat you like a roach in 9th grade.
Are u always this smart????
Because there is a HUGE difference.
oddly brilliant. o_o
[Lionhart goes down to the shed and comes back with a cancer cure half an hour later] Honestly, I didn`t know it was such a problem in the world, I`m surprised no-one asked me for one years ago!
The cure for cancer is the same as the cure for dang near everything else - just inject smaller doses into your system to build up immunity to it! That`s my excuse for being a smoker and I`m sticking to it!
The clothes drape better on smaller people than it would with a woman who is curvy and give a better idea of the silhouette to the article of clothing rather than the woman. The clothes are you, not the other way around. You`re only there to give it life.
Now, go back to your lab and finish curing cancer.
And yes, I`ve done some print work. I`m by no means a famous name, actually, I`m pretty much coming to the end of my career. I think I only have a season or so left. I`m already getting the `old` comment.
Anyway Mollie Sue seems to have escaped Tyra`s curse.
But we`re getting waaaaaaaayy off-topic.
One last off-topic question: you do runway only or have you any print work?
As for adding you, I don`t add people I don`t know personally. Sorry love. You can add his, though. I`m sure he`ll let you. Just type in John Stallings on facebook.
He`s doing very well for himself. I met him once at New York Fashion Week and he was absolutely darling. I kept looking at him, he`d look at me then we`d look away.
Finally I walked over and said "You`re John from Manhunt." and he smiled and was like "Yeah! I know your work too!"
Then I told him he was cut way too early from that show, but I am glad he`s doing well. We walked outside Bryant Park to get some Soulless Bucks (Starbucks) and to talk.
He`s on my Facebook. He`s moved home to Las Vegas and is working in the Starbucks in the Albertson`s shopping mall, but is heading back to Asia to do more work.
Very nice guy. Actually, I should call him tomorrow.
Though don`t tell him that I prefer Matt Lanter.
In fact, forget it. I can already fantasize you having already giving me his number and I can set up a date and stare in those lovely eyes...
No. Very few male models are gay. Off the top of my head the only male model I have met (out of the hundreds I`ve known from working at fashion shows) is John Stallings.
And yes, Prime, there is more to life than just, like, being really, really good looking. ;P
Lauraly, I`m not saying only thin girls are attractive. One of my very close friends is a size 14 and I think she`s one of the most beautiful looking girls I`ve ever known. What I am saying, is that through out fashion history the model is supposed to be tall and thin. When Fashion Shows first started in France in the 1500`s, thin women were picked because the designers worried that if they had a girl who was too curvy, it would distract from their clothing because everyone would be commenting on how beautiful SHE is.
Curvy women aren`t angular enough. A runway model is literally a walking clothes hanger. Thats what we`re there for. Its not us we`re selling, its the outfit.
On another note I think i`m the only girl who in the world who doesn`t find heels sexy.
I am suspicious of this post.
Ok, but what about MALE models? *starts snickering like in Zoolander*
"No, we`re not out there curing cancer, sending monkeys into space or cloning your ass, but its not an easy task to perform. Allow me to enlighten you:"
... Wait? So there`s more to life than being really really really good-looking?
"Whats wrong, fellas, did that hot chick in high school not look your way during science class?"
I do agree with Iroj because ppl shouldn`t make rude or bad comments about something unless they try it themselves.
Um yeah but all male models are gay, and therefore not real men ;-)
You don`t know pain until you`ve spent a full day in 6`` stilettos...D:
I find it interesting all these scathing comments are coming from men. The male modeling world is equally as brutal.
Whats wrong, fellas, did that hot chick in high school not look your way during science class?
As a few of you know, I work the cat-walk as a part of my living. During the off-season (between fashion weeks and major campaigns) I have a regular job.
So, here is my response to a few comments (not that it won`t stop the flood of idiots and their opinions):
"Here`s your job: walk down to there, turn around and walk back. Try not to fall over."
Here`s your job: Get to work on time, do something on the computer at your desk, pretend to look important. Try not to drat it up.
"Anyone who thinks this is hard has never worked a day in their lives."
So, why don`t you come do my job then, and I`ll switch your rocket-science/curing cancer job for a week. I mean, how hard can it be to prance?
No, we`re not out there curing cancer, sending monkeys into space or cloning your ass, but its not an easy task to perform. Allow me to enlighten you:
The clothing, depending on what designer you work for (and if its Ready-To-Wear or Haute Couture), can be easy to work with or VERY hard and constricting, especially if the size is too small, which it often is. A size 0-2 is a 23"-25" waist while the hips are 32"-34". Think about that.
Now we get to the shoes. The Alice asked why not use simple flats in the shows. The term "the shoes make or break the outfit" applies very much in fashion. Not only do these designers have clothes to show off, but shoes, hates, glasses, and pretty much everything else under the sun. You are right in saying its all about exaggeration, especially in Haute Couture power houses where its about the ART of the clothing, not the ready
Finally, you had to the fact that you CAN NOT look down, must walk a certain way (toe to heel rather than heel to toe), have a certain facial expression, bring the clothing to life, are blinded by dozens of camera flashes every second and the runways are very slick and often reflecting the light back up to you.
"If they weren`t so bony and had more muscle" Yet another common misconception. Models HAVE to work out. We can`t just be
"if i designed clothes id want my models to be over weight. bigger canvas ya see"There is a reason tall, skinny girls are picked for this job. Its the same reason "plus size" models are sizes 10-12. Clothing looks better on smaller people. Face it.
You`re not there to be seen. You are there because you have a sharp, angular body much like a clothes hanger. You want to see how the clothing will drape, not how it looks on Miss BBW Fabu-Ass 2009.
I could get more into the actual history of it...but I`ve already rambled enough. Not like anyone is going to read this or change their minds.
You have your first model right here :3
I`m just waiting for Iroj to get here.
says the failed rap model
go on, you try walking in a pair of these:
while doing your job of making the outfit look good, and not look like a freak while doing it.. oh a platform, under some water...lol, you have no idea what these girls are sometimes made to do for the sake of "the designers vision"
I mean if it`s about how tall a girl is, that`s what platform shoes are for, right? They add about half a foot or more material to the bottom of the shoe and there ya go!
But even then the center of gravity may be a bit off...
On another note, these women are always so frightfully thin, I`d be terrified of them snapping their poor legs in half after a fall. :(
The entire fashion industry needs to burn to the drating ground.
Not that I`m necessarily a fan of high fashion, or that I am a fan of emaciated models, but these women get shoved into 4-inch even 5-inch heels that are usually too small or too big.
It`s hard enough walking in normal heels that fit correctly...I can`t imagine walking in those beasts.
And on the last one, it looks like she broke her ankle.
