Have you ever said to yourself; “I am not pretty enough to model.” and let that stop you from your dream? Many girls have. So, I want to address this question while you’re here.
One misconception about modeling is that only the pretty girls make it in the business.
Although somewhat true, you’ll find other factors involved in becoming a female model.

Truth: Pretty Girls Don’t Always Become Models – So Who Does?
As you will see in this question and answer session, the female model here is a bit worried about her look for modeling.
Q. Am I Pretty Enough to Model? This Is What She Said…
“I just wanted your advice and the modeling emails you send me giving advice about getting started in the industry are awfully helpful to me in learning to model. The problem is that I’m not an absolutely pretty girl.
I am not pretty enough to model because I look at pictures of those beautiful women in the magazines. And, I don’t measure up to them at all!
So, I am not sure if I have what it takes to be a model. Any advice on modeling – or, about looks and beauty would be helpful.”
A. What? You are Not Pretty Enough to Model? Truthfully, Beauty is Only a Part of Modeling
You do have to be tall for runway and high fashion. But, there are also commercial and promotional jobs available for nice looking people with a certain look.
How to Get Your Modeling Career Going
Make lots of contacts, get interviews and let the modeling agencies turn you down or accept you.
Don’t defeat yourself in modeling before you start.
Most of the supermodels were turned down a few times including Tyra Banks and Cindy Crawford. So, don’t take “no” as a final no. Keep trying until you are sure.
I supply an agency directory to get you started for contacts at Modeling Agencies – USA Directory . So, you should be able to find plenty of contacts there.
Try a few agents in your local area. Make sure they are legit by asking if they charge fees upfront and see what happens.
If one modeling agent turns you down, go to the next, and the next. Read what famous female fashion model Miranda Kerr says about being rejected when starting out.
When You Say I am Not Pretty Enough to Model – Miranda Kerr says…
“There was so much rejection in the beginning.” In modeling, My life is more balanced than ever.
Female models are some of the most insecure people I’ve ever met. Agents constantly tell them they’re not good enough.”
So, don’t simply tell yourself; “I am not pretty enough to model.” Let the agencies direct you how to get started and don’t give up too soon!
