Most people think modeling is an extremely glamorous and carefree job. But I can say as a model myself, that most models don’t get enough credit for what they do. But being a pretty face isn’t always so, well, pretty.
From the outside looking in, it appears that supermodels have the ultimate lifestyle. They earn huge amounts of money, have access to the world’s most exclusive designers and have a career which allows them to travel across the globe. It’s difficult to imagine that anyone would be unhappy with this lifestyle, but unfortunately we are not looking at the bigger picture.
The life of a model exist mostly out of waiting at airports, waiting in overly crowded casting locations or waiting at jobs. All these not so glamorous tasks can make the models question their relevance and self image. Am I good enough? Am I skinny enough? Do they like me? Can I get this job? Isn’t it all for nothing? Why am I here? Is this worth the wait?
