Answer / priya

Any one can become a model. You don't have to be tall,
beautiful, slim, tall, and photogenic, know how to act etc.
You may require some of the above to be on the cover of the
magazine, but you may also have to attain certain skills
talents or features that can make you famous; Your Legs,
Hands and Eyes are just a few examples. Are all movie stars
gorgeous or tall? Being short does not mean you can't be
model, it means if you can't do runway modeling, it does not
limit you to other types of modeling.
Confidence is an importent aspect.

Answer / nataliya

Realistically, not many models make it big. If an agent
spots someone they like, they will recruit you. Typically,
you should be tall, thin, and pretty -as stereotypical as
that sounds, it's true. However, it all depends on what
kind of modeling. If you have a beautiful face, you can
possibly be a photo model. Otherwise, good luck. Remember
the purpose of models is to model products. A model should
be a blank canvas for a designer to work on.

Answer / joel rey s. carcasona

There are 5 most important qualities a model must possess
for you to rate them as a good model.
1. The walk....a model with a great walk can sell anything.
A beautiful model with a great body and a horrible walk is
usually a waste on the catwalk. an example being Naomi

2. Versatility.....a great model should be able to easily
slip into any role be it sexy, high fashion, commercial,
frumpy, geek...and they shouldnt look like they are example being Lara Stone and Raquel Zimmerman

3. The height......She should be above 5'9....since height
determines how she turns out in pictures and on the runway.
A shorter model tends to be overwhelmed especially by those
massive couture gowns. There are a few exceptional short
models though who have the ability to make themselves appear

4. me a model with great eyes can use them to
achieve anything in a in point Natalia V and
Jessica Stam

5. Confidence.....confidence shows whether in pics, on the
red carpet or even on the runway, this is why models like
Gisele, Karolina, Cindy and Tyra are where they are. Less
confident models tend to look awkward especially in more
commercial settings which are quite lucrative
