My mom was a model for most of her adult life and she was only 5'1". She did runway, print, and spokesperson appearances. However, she was a BIG fish in a small pond: all of this happened in Minnesota. She did work for all the big stores at that time: Dayton's; Donaldson's; J.C. Penny's, etc.Originally Posted by Xephyr
Loads of Petite Work came her way because she was perfectly proportioned; in print, you couldn't tell what size she was and on the runway, the couture clothes loved petite woman.
Of course, this was years ago, and Americans have been growing by leaps and bounds, so a 5'1" woman then was closer in height to a woman THEN, than they may be now.
Still crazy, after all these shears

I new a 16-year-year old once who had been a model in Europe since the age of 10. She had gone to a modeling contest with an older cousin. Just for kicks, they had her walk the runway and she won the whole thing.Originally Posted by TheLovelyBones
It was sad, though. At sixteen, she had come home to recover from being raped when her roommate set her up with some Eurotrash older guy who gave her a date-rape drug. she was so traumatized that she had to come home to recuperate from the whole thing, and I don't know if she ever did go back.
It's a tough business. Tyra was right when she said that young girls shouldn't go off to Europe (or anywhere else without a guardian). Or maybe it was Janice that said that in an interview I read somewhere.
Seeking form amidst the void.
But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.
Delia: Thank you much...but it took a few days for them to reply, which was rather quick, so I'm trying not to bounce off the walls now while waiting for them to reply
I read a book, by I don't know who, called The Bad and The Beautiful which was a really gruesome look at the modeling industry, most of it was somewhat factual...but I think some of it was added for dramatics, not that some casualities don't accur, I assure you they do, from anerexia, depression, drugs, rape...and all under the age of 20.
BUT, and there is a big BUT, these girls get themselves into these situations, it isn't completely the agents or the industries fault...I mean they go out and party, which ok most of them are 17 and good looking, they can go out and party...but in foreign countries where you are young and stupid I don't think its the best idea, and then they tell people they're a model, like it's some kind of title, rather than a job, and everyone wants to sleep with a model...hell I was imed by this guy in a chatroom once, we exchanged pictures, he was a [mod edit] father of two girls my age and he was complimenting me endlessly....I blocked him of course...it's just the way people react to it, I'm 5'10 and 16 years old..I was 5'8.5 at 14...People stare at you in the store, you are treated differently because you are tall and skinny, people are nicer to you, which is great, but it shows how shallow some people are...So far I've been called Miss America, smiled at, stared at, it just doesn't stop...some people have told me I should model, which ok I'm flattered, but still if I was 5'6 and maybe more than a size 4/6 I know damn well that I wouldn't get the same treatment...that bothers me.
As for the Anerexic thing, I used to have an eating problem, I could down almost a whole pizza, a bag of chips, I could eat anything, icecream at midnight...sure! Surely thats not healthy, after a while the whole thing went completely opposite and I was downing little to no food at all....I didn't gain weight, I didn't lose weight either....None of this really had to do with modeling, I find that most teenage girls diet, or don't eat, it's just part of puberty...Most models are 17, some younger, some older, but they have the metabolism of teenagers because they are teenagers, normal teenagers, not all, because I've noticed high schools have become 'rounder' lately, but normal teenagers can eat whatever they want, reasonably, not stuffing themselves and not gain a damn thing.
