    I love the topic of this post ! Its something new and I don’t comment on Instagram but I’m definitely thinking the same things as most people, being jealous of their bodies and their “glamorous” lives! It’s nice to see through this interview that it’s different and although we’re not models ourselves we can’t understand their lifestyles completely, but its good to have a small grasp on the more realistic aspects of their jobs! Great post(:

      Hi Rei! Thank you so much for your comment, it makes me feel good knowing that the post did exactly what it was intended to do. :) I’m also so glad that you enjoyed it!

      Have a wonderful weekend! xx

    Love this, so very well said, and I love that last quote by Maddy Pace. I’ve styled photo shoots as well and worked with models on a regular basis from castings to directing and I truly understand and get their perspective. As for those sometimes horrid comments on instagram (especially those that state the obvious and say eat something) I think those are made by jealous people who thinks the life of a model is all glammed up and that they have it all, without realized that 70-80% models get rejected on a daily basis when it comes to booking a job. And it’s really a hard life and I respect them for it.

      I agree with you 100% and I really appreciate your comment! There are tons of misconceptions surrounding any industry, but the modeling world’s is such a different circumstance because it’s so public. Hope you have a great weekend! xx

    Amazing interviews. The girls are beautiful and smart too. I have no idea why there are so many nasty comments on the social media sites. I guess these people are unhappy with their own live and jealous too.

      Hi Mira!

      Thank you so much for taking the time to read it, I’m really glad you enjoyed it! I agree with you. I think a lot of the time people make assumptions about others to deal with their own feelings of inferiority. Doing so is really limiting because you don’t get to appreciate people for who they really are!

      Have a wonderful Christmas! xx

    This is such a great article Christine! I agree the life of a model is often sugarcoated so much that others find it difficult to see them as actual people. Having also worked with models, I have a lot of respect for these women. Like you said, a lot of them are only teenagers and they are very mature and professional beyond their years.

    I always enjoy reading your blog- it reminds me of the kind of amazing and original articles enjoy reading in magazines!

    Hope you have a lovely Christmas!

      Hi Rachel! Thank you so much–it truly means a lot that you enjoyed the article. I agree with you. It seems like whenever people interview models it’s about their workout routine (in the case of Victoria’s Secret models they tend to emphasize the out of the ordinary, like the two week long juice cleanses and two a day workouts) rather than the things that actually make them unique.

      I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, too! I so appreciate your blog friendship, and I hope you are enjoying your first holiday season down under! xx

      Yes, these two in particular are both of slender build, but there are lots of beautiful models who come in all shapes and sizes. :)

    I was looking forward to this article and it’s fantastic. It definitely saddens me to read those comments so it’s great to know what really goes on behind the scenes. I think it needs to be talked about more.

    I know exactly what you mean, it’s weird to see many people freely giving all their comments on photos others post. I always wonder what they would feel like if it was returned to them.

    Fun to read how these girls see their jobs. Happy Holidays

    • December 24, 2014 / 12:56 am

      Right? I couldn’t imagine if someone came to my office and criticized the way I typed or sat in my chair, why would we go and criticize someone else’s job?

      I’m really glad you enjoyed the article. Happy Holidays! xx

    Great post! All women no matter the social status, rich or poor, Black or White ..we all have common threads in our lives that connect us as women. We all go through the same things, have the same fears and want the same things. The internet although it has connected us with other humans around the globe, if you let the opinions of folks who have no relevance in your life most of the time drive your feelings about yourself, it’ll destroy you…the modeling industry is a perfect example of that. The models you interviewed sound pretty grounded, great job sharing their story girly!


    • December 24, 2014 / 12:58 am

      Thank you so much, it really means a lot to me that you enjoyed the post!

      You really hit the nail on the head though with this statement– “if you let the opinion of folks who have no relevance in your life most of the time drive your feelings about yourself, it’ll destroy you.” It’s so weird to me that some people feel so self important that they’d go to someone else’s account and take the time to put them down.

      Anyways, I hope you’re having a wonderful week and that you have a very Merry Christmas! xx

    Such a thought provoking feature & interview. I think we as a society judge people & jobs way to quickly. We always anticipate the worst (no matter who it is) — they’re mean, bitchy, dumb. So cool to learn a bit more about a particular job field.

      Hey Carmen! I totally agree with you. I find that I tend to assume negative intent at times, but it’s so important that we always try to see the best in people.

      I hope you have a wonderful holiday! xx

    Good for you! You not only remind readers about the human side of models, you illustrate your point with entertaining interviews. Their answers to your questions are interesting and reveal these women to be made of substance. They are true individuals, not mere eye-candy for viewers. I applaud this effort.
