when I’m older I would like to become a Victoria’s Secret model, thoughts?

Question by Godivarose: when I’m older I would like to become a Victoria’s Secret model, thoughts?
I am 14 and I am almost 5’7 (still growing) and I am 100 lbs. I have long golden brown hair (getting highlights). I have huge silver/green eyes. I have been told that I am stunningly beautiful, I’m not average! When I’m 16 I will be going to different modeling schools and then when I am older I want to move out to New York and be in a modeling agency like Ford or Elite.
I think I have what it takes! 🙂
I’d like to thank all of you guys for answering so fast! I’ll try to submit a picture of my self, I’m sorry I’m not trying to sound full of myself. 🙁
I’m just trying to describe what I look like.

Go ahead, great idea. But just make sure that you don’t get ripped off and broke by sucky fake agencies.

  1. I can’t trust your description of yourself…we need an actual picture…and by the time you’re old enough to model your looks could change.

    Being a VS model is extremely hard. You need a ton of talent and experience…it’s not just about looks. There’s a reason why only a small percent of girls who try to be VS models actually become VS models. It’s not as easy as you’d like to think. Sorry. There aren’t even that many VS models…if you haven’t noticed, it’s almost ALWAYS the same models over and over again…there’s a reason for that.

    If you do try to model, at least have something else to fall back on if you fail. It’s not easy getting a job when the only thing you have any type of job expeirence with is modeling.

  2. we need a pic..
    oh and im no model, but looks arent just everything on the catwalk. you have to have good posture, know how to walk, and a bunch of things.

  3. Okay whatever. Just don’t make that the only thing you strive for because the chances are your going to get kicked on your butt. There are tens of thousands of pretty girls that want to be Victoria’s Secret models and even more who want to just model. Chances are your not going to get that far so just be prepared with a backup.

  4. Gosh you’re modest. Modelling schools actually decrease your chances of getting signed with an agency, and VS models are the whores of the fashion world- harsh, but true.

  5. First off, you don’t need “modeling school.” What you need is this:

    Best “education” on how to get into modeling & the modeling world: http://www.newmodels.com or http://www.exploremodeling.com. Both sites explain how the modeling world REALLY works and how to get into modeling. Educate yourself so you don’t get scammed. Also check out: http://carinaecasting.com/site/index.php/tag/model-call/.

    FYI – you don’t need a portfolio in order to send photos to an agency. Any agency who wants you will know exactly what kinds of photos they want in order to promote you. Do NOT listen to anyone who says you need a portfolio in order to get started! I had nothing when my agency accepted me. When they signed me, they told me what types of photos they needed (“Commercial/lifestyle”), gave me a list of photographers in the area who did that type of photography, and I had to get photos taken for my comp card (model’s business card which has photos on it). I didn’t have to use any of the photographers on the list, I was free to go to any photographer I wanted as long as they knew how to do commercial photography. If an “agency” sends you to use their in-house photographer & don’t give you the option to shop around for a different photographer, then it is a scam.

    And keep in mind that since you are under 18, you will need parental consent before any agency will sign you. So get your parents involved in your decision and have them look at those sites above too so they know what you are doing is legit.

    And lastly, modeling is a lot of hard work & you can’t always do what you want. As a model, I have to make sure I get a lot of sleep, eat the right nutritious foods, and take good care of myself. Sometimes I can’t go out with my friends because I have rehearsals for a show or fittings. You sometimes have to wait around for hours for a rehearsal or maybe at a photoshoot and you have to be very patient. Some models take their homework with them to shoots or rehearsals because they have no other time to do it. Modeling isn’t all about lying around looking beautiful. The glamorous photos don’t show how much work this really is. I don’t say this to turn you off, I say it because people are often surprised about how much work a photoshoot is. Holding poses is tough and it sometimes reminds me of yoga because some of the poses aren’t very comfortable at all but you have to try to stay relaxed and *look” comfortable. It’s hard. Having said that, if you truly love to model, you won’t mind the work involved. Best of luck!!! 🙂
