Who can I become famous model

Mädchen.de:What requirements do you have to have as a model?

m! a models: There are many prerequisites for working as a model. Outward characteristics such as a special charisma, beauty and a tall, slim figure are essential. In general, women from 174 cm have a real chance, but the ideal size for female models is now 180 cm. The ability to change is also important for a career. Make-up artists must be able to apply make-up to the model's face in a very individual and multi-faceted manner. In addition to the appearance, a budding model must bring discipline, patience, resilience, health and the will to get up.

Model test: will you be a top model?

Mädchen.de: How old should a girl be if she wants to model?

m! a models: The starting age for girls is on average between 16 and 18 years.

Mädchen.de: Do you need a declaration of consent from your parents under the age of 18?

Yes, in this case the agency needs parental consent.

Mädchen.de: What should the "application" look like?

m! a models: We prefer when the prospective models apply online in advance on our homepage. Pictures, contact details, height and dimensions are very important here. The images should be a natural portrait, bikini photo, and a laughing portrait. And they all have to be without makeup - we have to see the girls in person! If we as an agency are interested, we will contact the applicant and invite her personally.

Become a model: tips and tricks

Mädchen.de: Do you really have to be ultra-thin as a model?

m! a models: No, of course you shouldn't be hungry. But in order to be able to work internationally, you can have a maximum hip circumference of 90cm (measured at the thickest point from your bottom). Of course, it is also important that the body is nicely taut or firm and possibly lightly trained.

Mädchen.de: If someone speaks to you on the street, how do you recognize a serious scout?

m! a models: First of all, we would like to say that well-known model and casting agencies hardly ever look for models through newspaper ads!
They have professional model scouts who approach the girls on the street, but then invite them to a free and professional shoot. As soon as you have to pay for the shoot or the set card, you can assume that it is a dubious agency. That is why we urgently advise against so-called “casting associations” or “model clubs”. Here the "models" usually have to pay an annual fee in advance and are "allowed" to attend senseless seminars. The photos always end up in a database that cannot be used. In addition, many dubious agencies play with the girls' illusions and promise them that they will be rich and famous tomorrow. A well-known agency tells applicants straight to their faces whether something will work out with their careers or not.
And very, very important: If someone ends up on a shoot where he is supposed to undress and it is not a previously discussed erotic or men's magazine - say unequivocally “no” and leave the studio as soon as possible !

Mädchen.de: Where exactly is the difference between a beauty, advertising, catalog or catwalk model?

m! a models: In general, you can't separate them, as a successful model should work in each area. We don't have any girls who only work for beauty or only for catwalks.

Mädchen.de: Is it possible to combine modeling with school?

m! a models: We have a lot of girls who only model during the holidays. But honestly, if you want to work internationally, it is very difficult to keep going to school.

Mädchen.de: What does a model earn on average?

m! a models: You start at around 500 euros a day, for editorial fashion spreads it's sometimes a little less. Depending on professional experience, this can increase from 750 to 2250 euros per day for advertising shots. There are no upper limits depending on the consistency and level of awareness of the model as well as the size of the campaign.

Mädchen.de: How realistic is the chance of starting your career as an international model?

m! a models: If the conditions are right and the model has a lot of discipline and your agency builds them up well, then the chances are not bad. But there is a lot of competition - especially from the Baltic region.
