Q. "I've always thought that models are tall and thin. Isn't that true?"

ANSWER: To do modeling assignments you do not have to be tall and thin.

Tall and thin does help a model to do a bit more work. However, certainly in no way, if a model is NOT tall and thin, is she restricted from getting modeling bookings. As a matter of fact, most models are not tall and thin at all.

Models in music videos, on beer posters, print ads, hair magazines, hair shows, editorial work and much more, actually range in height and dress size. Besides, "chocolate" people are built differently. Full lips are standard for a Nubian Queen. To add to it all, thighs and hips are what "defines" a chocolate woman as being "chocolate".                                            


Q: Why Do Most People Get Into Modeling?

ANSWER: Most people get into modeling because of the extra income it brings.

Many of them do have a day job already & attend college at night after working their 9-5 job and do modeling assignments on-the-side.

Fashion shows, music videos, print advertisements, hair magazines, etc.
All done on the side for extra income.
