BECOME A MODEL: YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS BEFORE THE GNTM CASTING
If you want to be a model, you usually have to be relatively tall. Especially for the catwalk, tall people are in demand! But there are also areas, such as catalog shoots, or beauty & hair, where just as well smaller people can be used.
But who actually has opportunities to start as a model? In February 2018 , the new season of Germany’s Next Top Model begins. As in the previous season, top model Heidi Klum, Thomas Hayo and Michal Michalsky will again be on the jury. Did you apply for it, or would you like to do it next year?
MODEL: HOW BIG DOES A MODEL HAVE TO BE?
Every model agency and / or designer has different preferences. A minimum size is in any case at 1.70 meters – but most agencies require at least a size of 1.74 meters. The ideal size for female models is now already at 1.80 meters. If you want to become a classic model, you have to be relatively tall.
If you want to become a model you usually need long legs. These are still considered as the ideal of beauty and are an absolute requirement in the model business. Incidentally, 90 percent of all girls and women have a leg length (outside) between 95.5 and 112.6 centimeters. The third season GNTM winner, Jennifer Hof, has a proud leg length of 113 centimeters. That is very unusual. Although there is no exact minimum size, you should already have a leg length of approx. 105 centimeters as a model.
GNTM CASTING: HOW TALL DO YOU HAVE TO BE?
In the first GNTN squadrons, the minimum size for the candidates was 1.72 meters. But meanwhile the regulations have changed. In order to make a round in the GNTM casting, you have to be at least as tall as Model-Mama Heidi Klum: namely 1.76 meters.
BECOME A MODEL: HOW THIN ARE MODELS?
First of all, models have to do a lot of sports and pay close attention to a healthy diet. This body is hard work and does not fall from the sky. If you want to become a model you have to be able to bite your teeth. The famous 90-60-90 sizes are no longer taken so strictly. There are also more and more curvy models , so every person has the chance to become a model, no matter what the scales say. 🙂 It’s the same with tattoos and piercings ! For a long time, the body jewelry was mocked by the fashion world – now even fake tattoos are used in fashion shows.
PS. Always remember: the flawless and flawless model photos are all lying! Because the photos are neatly pimped with image editing programs! 😉
WHEN CAN YOU BECOME A MODEL?
Most models start at the age of 14.15 or 16 years . But there is no such thing as a solid guideline – there are also models who start their careers much later. At GNTM casting you have to be at least 16 years old and have a declaration of consent from your parents!
BECOME A MODEL: WHERE CAN I APPLY AS A MODEL?
Become a model? One possibility is the GNTM casting! Every year Heidi Klum is looking for the most beautiful girls in Germany – why should not YOU be one of them ?! 🙂
Of course, the classic route leads through a modeling agency. The agency serves as an intermediary between models and clients – they help you to castings and assignments. Big agencies have thousands of models under contract. To be included in the model card of an agency, an application with pictures is necessary. In the last few years, however, a successful Instagram account or blog has also become the door opener in the fashion world. The best example of this is Pamela Reif , who is now shooting for many customers, such as Deichmann or Puma.
