If you are one of the lucky few, then you have had the good fortune of going to see the exclusive Victoria Secret Fashion Show. But you are probably amongst the many that have most probably seen this famous fashion show on TV, which runs every year. Becoming a Victoria Secret model is something many models aspire to be. Only the best models or supermodels can make it to the runway of this exclusive fashion event. Aspiring to be a model may be the wish of many but it takes more than looks to make it in this field. Ask supermodels and they will share their stories of struggle and hard work, which paid off in the end when they finally reached the status of supermodel.
Although, the basic requirement for becoming a model is exquisite beauty with defined eyes, a sharp face structure, defined facial features and a slim and healthy physical appearance, it is your personality, commitment and dedication which will set you apart from your counterparts. For many years the prevalent norm for models was to be paper thin. The famous size zero models who looked like they were about to faint, which caused controversies around the world, for they set bad examples for many young women, who strived to reach the same unrealistic physical appearance. The industry has slowly started to change and place more emphasis on models who are not “paper thin”, but healthy looking while being attractive.
While learning to become what it takes to be a model, one thing a person must never forget is to lose themselves in the process by getting caught up in the glitz, glamour and the sometimes catty competitiveness. Ask supermodels like Selma Hayek, Cindy Crawford, Gisele Bundchen, Naomi Campbell and many more, and they will all tell you the secret to their success was maintaining a healthy lifestyle by dieting and exercise, not starvation, and most importantly hard work and dedication. As long as you are ready to push yourself during the worst of times, while remembering who you are, you can make it, for there is no such thing as luck. Luck is simply hard work meeting opportunity when it knocks on your door. So start by learning the secrets of the runway and being a model by joining a modeling institute or modeling program and then prepare to put in a lot of time and hard work and soon your name can be amongst the top super models.
