Jo Saggers, una mamá soltera de Inglaterra, inició una campaña en su Facebook para dar con la identidad del joven atractivo que viajó junto a ella en un avión.

La mujer viajaba desde Valencia, España, a Gatwick, cuando conoció a Joe, quien aseguró se portó caballeroso, educado y encantador.

Cientos de internautas le dieron consejos de cómo dar con su identidad, pues mencionaron que si llamaba a la aerolínea y decía que encontró su cartera, ellos podrían darle su número de teléfono.

Otro de los factores que desató la atracción de Jo hacia Joe, fue su gran parecido con el futbolista el Liverpool, Jordan Henderson.

Su caso se hizo viral rápidamente, pero se desconoce si ya logró contactar a su amor de avión.

          Increíble gesto de un vendedor a joven con autismo      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Jordan Taylor, un vendedor en la tienda Rouse Market ubicada en Baton Rouge, Luisiana, tuvo un gesto amable y solidario con un joven autista: permitió al chico ayudar a organizar y guardar algunos artículos en los refrigeradores.

La historia que se volvió viral en las redes sociales sucedió el pasado 29 de julio y el momento fue captado por el padre de Jack Ryan Edwards, de 17 años, el joven con autismo.

En los clips se observa a Jack ayudar a guardar leche y jugos en los refrigeradores de la tienda. “Jack Ryan estaba mirando a Jordan completar las heladeras cuando Jordan le preguntó si quería ayudarlo. La sonrisa en el rostro de Jack dijo todas las palabras que él no pudo decir. Este joven se tomó el tiempo para permitir que Jack Ryan lo ayudara durante más de 30 minutos, guiándolo mientras terminaba su tarea. Lo pudo haber ignorado, pudo haber puesto un pretexto y no permitirle acomodar los productos, pero no lo hizo. En su lugar, le dio a mi familia un momento que nunca olvidaremos", comentó Delaney, la hermana de Edwards, junto a la publicación de los videos en Facebook.

"Algo en el fondo de mi mente me decía que le preguntara si quería ayudarme" dijo por su parte Taylor a la cadena WAFB.

Delaney también abrió una página en el sitio GoFundMe para recaudar fondos para ayudar a Taylor a inscribirse a la universidad, tal es su deseo. Las autoridades de la Neighbors Federal Credit Union también reconocieron el acto bondadoso de Taylor y le regalaron un automóvil.

Taxes and the county's water district are among the miscellaneous topics for the Summit County Council Wednesday. The Council meets at the Coalville Courthouse. At about 4:30, they will get a briefing from the Central Utah Water Conservancy District which is proposing a tax increase. County Manager Tom Fisher said this doesn't impact many of their citizens. The boundaries of the Central Utah District only include the southern end of the county. "The district really just comes into the southern part of the county. Kind of the Jordanelle area, because the Jordanelle reservoir is part of that district. So, anybody that's along the Provo River drainage could possibly be part of that district. As I was reading through the packet it essentially was a lot of the same reasons that the county had for going through truth in taxation last year. They're trying to get back and recapture some of that inflation area pressure on their tax base. They also seem to have a policy of having some kind of

Jaylen Brown and the Boston Celtics gave LeBron James and Co. a run for their money in the Eastern Conference Finals last season, falling just short of the NBA Finals.Now that James is out West with the Los Angeles Lakers, many believe the Celtics are the team to beat in the East.We can certainly count Brown among that group. Looking ahead to a James-less Eastern Conference for the 2018-19 NBA season, Brown is absolutely positive he’ll help his team get to that next level.“We’re getting to the Finals,” Brown said on the Pull Up Podcast with Portland Trail Blazers guard C.J. McCollum and Yahoo Sports insider Jordan Schultz. “No question about it.”Boston certainly has the pieces in place to make a strong run. Both Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward — coming back very strong from his season-ending injury — are expected to be fully healthy for the coming season.No doubt Boston will be challenged by the likes of Toronto, Philadelphia and Indiana. But make no mistake about it: The Celtics are the strongest team in the

With the summer fast approaching,college buds Michael Del Ray and Luke Reed waste time at Luke's house and talk about their future. Both guys are considering different college paths, but the ultimate dream would be for both of them to head out to the islands to just surf the day away. Smiling at the thought, Michael tells Luke he actually has a pretty nasty injury from a run the other day and asks Luke for one of his famous massages. Luke agrees and begins to work on Michael's shoulder. As he leans back into it, Michael feels a protruding bulge in Luke's pants, and he laughs, asking Luke if he's hard. Luke is embarrassed and tries to play it off, but Michael is already reaching out to him and bringing his face in closer. They kiss on the sofa and quickly make their way to Luke's bedroom. Once there, Michael unleashes his giant cock as Luke takes it into his mouth hungrily. He gobbles up Michael's hard on and begs him to put it inside him. Michael obliges, piercing Luke's hole with his mammoth member, sliding it in and out of Luke's young hole. Picking up the pace, he begins to fuck Luke harder and harder, and Luke loves every minute of it. Michael flips Luke over onto his hands and knees and fucks Luke doggystyle as he gets close. With one last hard push, he's ready to nut, so he pulls out and blasts Luke's ass with his load, spraying his jizz all over Luke's back, then he flips Luke and begins to suck him off. Luke spits his nut all over Micheal's face, covering him with his load as the two of them laugh and agree this has to be part of the future plan.

After having lunch with a friend, Jackson Traynor watches him leave from the window. Roomie Ryan Jordan catches him and asks him if he has a crush, and Jackson sheepishly admits that he does. Ryan asks Jackson if he wants to fuck their friend, and Jackson is madeto admit this, too. Ryan asks Jackson if he'd like to fuck him, and Jackson doesn't answer. Ryan takes his silence as a yes and pulls him closer, and Jackson does not resist. They kiss for the first time since moving in together and Jackson reaches down to rub the bulge in Ryan's jeans. It grows hard inside Jackson's hand and he quickly unzips Ryan's pants, taking them down to reveal Ryan's giant hard on. Jackson smiles before taking it into his mouth, and he feasts on Ryan's mammoth sized dick, already fantasizing about being fucked by such a cock. Ryan throws him onto the bed and sucks him off, stroking himself in the process. He spits on Jackson's hole and then swabs the head of his cock with it, then begins to slide it into Jackson's hole. Jackson tells him to go slow and Ryan obliges, working it in gently. Jackson's never taken a cock so big, but once it's in, he can't get enough, and Ryan picks up the pace, spreading his legs holding them as he pounds into Jackson with passion before flipping him over onto his knees. He grabs Jackson's waist and fucks him from behind, getting his fill as Jackson strokes his cock. Ryan tells Jackson he wants him to fuck him and so Jackson flips over onto his back. Ryan mounts him, spreading his legs wide and stroking his cock as Jackson fucks him from beneath. He spits his load all over Jackson's chest and tells him he wants him to cum. Jackson pulls out and soaks Ryan's hole with his nut, making a mess of it as he slides his dick back inside for round 2.Enjoy!

When Chris Blades comes home to find porn running in the living room, he realizes roomie Charlie Pattinson has been bullshitting him about being sick. He enters Charlie's room to find him in bed pretending to be tired, but when he rouses Charlie's covers and tells him to get up, he instead finds his roommate naked and ready for action. Chris asks Charlie if he needs a remedy for what's ailing him, already working his way down Charlie's body to his waistline. Looking Charlie in the eye, he takes the cock in front of him gently between hilips, giving his roommate slow head as Charlie gets hard inside his mouth. Chris begins to stroke himself off at the thought of Charlie's dick pounding his hole, and Charlie is getting more and more comfortable at the idea of his roommate sucking him off, returning the favor before fucking Chris all over the bed. Charlie gives him everything he has, fucking Chris missionary before letting him mount his bareback dick. Chris rides like a pro as he strokes himself, and Charlie bounces his ass up and down on his cock as Chris loses his nut all over himsef. Charlie keeps fucking Chris from behind as Chris quivers from his orgasm, and the tension in Chris' hole makes Charlie ready to burst, so he pulls out and nuts all over Chris' ass. As he falls back on the pillow, he realizes Chris is right, and that he suddenly feels much, much better.

Next Door stud Johnny Hill has a newbie in his bed, and he intends on taking his sweet time before snatching Dominic Green's cherry. Dominic's sweet sucker is already unwrapped for Johnny, so he helps himself to a nice long lick, working it in his mouth before flipping Dominic over to see the rest of the goods. Dominic is ready for Johnny's lollipop, so Mr. Hill plunges it deep inside, long dicking Dominic from behind before grabbing him by the waist and pounding him. Dominic proves to be every bit as sweet as Johnny imagined, giving it up to Johnny however he wants it. Johnny fucks Dominic all over the bed, mounting him as Dominic rides him reverse. Dominic strokes his dick as Johnny fucks the cum out of him, pulling out and jizzing up into Dominic's sweet hole before sliding it back inside for a round of seconds.

Báo cáo do cơ quan giám sát truyền thông của Anh, gọi tắt là Ofcom, cho hay Facebook vẫn có trên 40 triệu người dùng, chiếm 90% số người sử dụng internet ở Anh nhưng số người trẻ từ 18-24 tuổi đã giảm 4%.

Trong khi đó những người dùng Facebook ở tuổi ngoài 54 đã tăng tới 24%, tức thêm 2,2 triệu và đưa tổng số lên 11,4 triệu, theo số liệu tính tới hết tháng 3/2018.

Số người dùng ở độ tuổi 18-24 giảm xuống 5,4 triệu từ con số 5,6 triệu và người dùng ở độ tuổi 25-34 cũng giảm từ 8,5 triệu xuống còn 8,2 triệu trong cùng thời gian. Như vậy Facebook đã mất đi nửa triệu người dùng ở độ tuổi 18-34 trong 12 tháng qua.

Số phút trung bình mỗi ngày mà người Anh dùng Facebook là 27, giảm 8% so với năm 2017.
Một phóng sự của BBC cách đây ít lâu cũng cho biết thêm cứ ba người ở Anh thì có một người không dùng mạng xã hội và nếu nhìn trên bình diện toàn cầu thì cứ 10 người lại có ít nhất sáu người không dùng mạng xã hội.

Phóng sự cũng dẫn ý kiến nói nhiều người đang dùng mạng xã hội cảm thấy bị cuốn vào vòng xoáy khó rời xa của các mạng như Facebook, vốn được thiết kế để thu hút tối đa sự chú ý của người dùng nhằm kiếm lời từ quảng cáo.

Vì sao các bạn trẻ rời Facebook và họ đi đâu?

Hồi đầu năm nay báo Guardian của Anh đã có bài nói về chuyện hơn ba triệu người dưới 25 tuổi ở Anh và Hoa Kỳ sẽ thôi hoặc ít dùng Facebook thường xuyên trong năm 2018.

Tựa đề của bài báo dường như đã có ý nói tới nguyên nhân: ‘Phụ huynh giết nó’: vì sao thanh niên rời bỏ Facebook’.

Bài báo dẫn lời một bạn trẻ: “Các phụ huynh giết nó [Facebook] ngay khi họ lên [mạng xã hội này].” Bạn trẻ Jordan Ranford, 24 tuổi, cũng được dẫn lời nói bạn đã huỷ kết bạn với mẹ vì bà làm bạn “khó chịu quá”.

Một bạn trẻ khác, Georgia Davey, 21 tuổi nói bạn ít đăng tải thông tin lên Facebook mà chỉ dùng nó để liên hệ với bạn và lên kế hoạch gặp nhau cũng như để “thám thính” xem mọi người làm gì. Georgia Davey cho rằng Facebook gần như đã trở thành chỗ để người già theo dõi tụi trẻ và cô chuyển sang dùng Instagram nhiều hơn, phần cũng vì nó có nhiều hình ảnh hơn.

Thực tế báo cáo mới nhất của Ofcom cho thấy những người ở độ tuổi 18-24 trên Instagram tăng thêm 500.000 lên năm triệu sau một năm và số người từ 25-34 cũng tăng thêm 400.000 lên 5,9 triệu.
Nhưng số người già hơn cũng lên Instagram ngày một nhiều với 3,9 triệu ở độ tuổi 45-54, tăng 1,3 triệu so với năm 2017. Số người ngoài 55 cũng tăng thêm 1,3 triệu lên 3,8 triệu.

Cứ theo ý kiến của một số bạn trẻ ở trên, khả năng có mối liên hệ giữa cha mẹ và con cái trên sân chơi mới Instagram có lẽ không nhiều.

Instagram cũng là mạng xã hội do Facebook sở hữu và cho dù Facebook đứng đầu về mạng xã hội, họ vẫn thua Google về tổng số người dùng ở Anh. Tính tới tháng 3/2018, 41,9 triệu người trên 18 tuổi dùng các trang của Google trong đó 40 triệu dùng YouTube, 37 triệu dùng trang tìm kiếm Google, 25 triệu dùng Google Maps và 23 triệu dùng Gmail. Trong khi đó các trang và ứng dụng trong thực thể Facebook bao gồm cả Whatsapp được 40,2 triệu người dùng. Đứng thứ ba là các trang của BBC với 39,5 triệu sau khi hãng tin sống chủ yếu nhờ thu lệ phí truyền hình vượt qua cả Amazon và Microsoft trong năm qua.

Certainly Not Draftageddon 2018: Offensive Line Seth August 8th, 2018 at 12:51 PM
rede

New format this year: all the arguments over bad offensive linemen, none of the drafts

Previously: Quarterbacks and Running Backs, Receivers and Tight Ends

Brian: I dunno guys let's just pick Wisconsin.

Seth: You do that every year.

BiSB: Dibs on the big white guy.

Brian: Am i wrong?

Seth: Sigh, not this time.

Ace:

Athlon has four of their five starters as first-teamers and I have a very hard time finding fault with that.

BiSB: Beau Benzensomething is the real deal. He could be an All-American.

Ace: And one could argue he’s their third-best starter. LT David Edwards stepped in pretty seamlessly for Ryan Ramczyk and is getting potential first-round hype. C-turned-RT Michael Deiter is really good, too.

Seth: Flip those, Ace: Edwards plays RT and Deiter is at LT because Hornibrook makes everything reversed.

Ace: Ah, right. Was going by NFL positions. Stupid Mr. Tight Windows.

Seth: Randy Rivers

Brian: Oooh that's a good one.

Brian: How you gonna name your kid "Bo" but make it French if your kid is going to be a Wisconsin OL?

Ace: The last name makes up for it. It has five consonants in a row.

BiSB: Deiter and Edwards are both really good, but watch Benzschawel against Michigan last year. He REAL good.

Ace: Yeah, his draft stock may be down just based on position. He’s excellent. We should also probably name the other first-team Wisconsin OL: C Tyler Biadasz, who allowed Deiter to kick outside with no problem.

Seth: And the other guard, Jonathan Dietzen, who was 6-6/340 and probably 20 pounds more than that by now. He just moves people.

BiSB: Stupid sexy Wisconsin offensive line.

Ace: That SI cover is pure Badger porn.

Brian: Does it make you horni?

Ace: SO, ANY NON-BADGERS

[Does anyone else in the conference have an offensive lineman who doesn't suck? Find out, AFTER THE JUMP!!!]

 

BiSB: ...actually, no?

Ace: MICHAEL JORDAN?

(NTMJ)

Seth: Ummm... He's not a sucky freshman anymore but he's had a very Kalis-ian career.

BiSB: The other reason Wisconsin's line is such a no-brainer is that the rest of the Big Ten is remarkably light on major talents.

Ace: It’s good to remember that Kalis is more an exception than a rule for guys who see the field early.

Brian: Yeah there's no outlier NFL prospect somewhere weird.

BiSB: Not big on Tariq Cole?

Ace: Yeah, it’s hard to pick guys, unless you believe the somewhat-extant Cole hype that seemed louder last year. But that may just be that PFF stopped doing college stuff for the most part.

Brian: I don't see what that has to do with Big Ten OL

Ace: Fair point.

Seth: Indiana has one decent tackle and one really bad one. It's been kind of funny though to read the hype around both of them because they've been starting for so long.

Brian: I'm gonna be honest here guys, without the prospect of mercilessly humiliating you my OL research has been less deep than usual.

Seth: IU's on the Frey fumes still.

Ace: It’s also really a weak year unless a lot of guys break through. The B1G needs a lot of guys who played early and weren’t very good like Coy Cronk and Ben Bredeson and whatnot to break out.

Seth: Brandon Knight is the one who's decent and might be good with another year's removal from tight end. Cronk is the one Gary was telling Winovich "flip! flip!" and Winovich was all "No, it's my turn!"

Brian: Damian Prince maybe? Maryland has a couple of potential dudes.

Seth: Maryland has all guards.

Ace: Yeah, he came to mind.

Brian: Okay but guards are good to have.

Ace: Maryland’s problem is several of them play tackle.

Seth: One has to play center too.

Ace: Derwin Gray is another guy who had a lot of recruiting hype and hasn’t delivered yet.

Brian: I and all of Maryland's QBs in the infirmary are aware, but could have a couple guards!

Seth: I made a highlight video last year of Maryland centers flipping snaps over their QBs' heads.

Brian: Brand was so short that's understandable? We should stop talking about this.

BiSB: /waves tiny "we had guards" flag

Seth: You know who Maryland has? Terrance Davis.

Ace: Ugh. Some guys are listing, uh, the other Prince—OSU’s Isaiah Prince.

Seth: That guy! I put together a rather extensive photo collection of him getting beat while assembling HTTV:

image

Ace: Is this the year PSU has some guys? I know they have talent. Ryan Bates emerged last year for PSU and he’s still on the come-up.

BiSB: So, I guess I have to ask: is it possible despite [waves arm in general direction of 2017], picking guys from Michigan's offensive line wouldn't be insane?

Brian: I mean we joke about all the guards, but, like...

 

Seth: Bates is a good one, and I trust their OL coach, Matt Limegrover, to get a jump forward from a lot of young 4-star types they've accumulated.

Brian: And that's in the terrifying division.

heeeeees a tackle

read the tweet

Seth: The Maryland and PSU PFF stats for OL have the same problem that led me down the Tariq Cole rabbit hole last year: When the ball is out of the backfield in 0.5 seconds the OL get good pressure metrics. They're not worthless, but those take context. Maryland was a screen and screen and line up with a covered receiver and run out the backside offense. Meanwhile Penn State fans (at least the ones who don't use baby talk and wonder aloud if Franklin's a better coach than Nick Saban) lol when you give them positive metrics about their OL and point to Barkley dancing around four yards in the backfield.

Ace: Yeah, even as the guy who took Damian Prince in ’geddon 17, I don’t think he’s that good at pass blocking.

Brian: That's true. But it's not like we're shoving over a bunch of other candidates. Cole Chewins might be 280+ this year?

Ace: The options are quite limited, however. Northwestern’s Tommy Doles, anyone?

Seth: Northwestern fans would trade their entire offensive line for Michigan's I'm staying away from that.

Ace: Yikes.

Brian: Really?

Seth: They're really down on their OL coach right now.

Ace: Yeah, I feel like that’s mostly on Mick McCall. MSU’s David Beedle was third-team all-conference last year. I’m running out of guys to name before I get to ED WARINNER COULD SHAKE UP THIS LIST A BIT.

Seth: Nebraska has a good guard: Tanner Farmer. He's so surrounded by ineptitude he got lost last year but Frost will know how to maximize that.

Ace: Given the competition, it’s hard to rule out Cesar Ruiz making a run at a spot.

BiSB: Upside-wise, I'd take Ruiz over anyone not wearing Badger red.

Brian: Yeah. I feel like we're leaving out a clearly very good OSU OL.

Seth: OSU has to tell us who that's going to be.

BiSB: They lost the known quantities. They're have some dudes, but we're not 100% sure we know who they will be.

Ace: Their returning starters: Jordan, Demetrius Knox, Brandon Bowen, Isaiah Prince. And I think Bowen got hurt again?

BiSB: Okay, so they lost Billy Price.

Ace: And Jamarco Jones.

Seth: I think Bowen will be back for Michigan but for now center and left tackle are open battles.

Ace: Guys split time so they some quasi-starters back.

They have a ton of talented young guys but the proven ones are, weirdly, Jordan and Prince. From Bill C’s preview:

The Buckeyes do have to replace Rimington Trophy-winning Billy Price and all-conference left tackle Jamarco Jones. For most teams, that would be crippling. But all-conference guard Michael Jordan and third-team all-conference tackle Isaiah Prince are back, two other upperclassmen (Demetrius Knox and Brandon Bowen) have combined for 14 starts, and — again — there are blue-chippers in wait: redshirt freshmen Wyatt Davis and Josh Myers, incoming freshmen Nicholas Petit-Frere and Matthew Jones, etc.

BiSB: Still, OSU had their highest per-carry average since 2013 last year.

Ace: It’s time to consider that Isaiah Prince isn’t bad anymore, I guess.

Brian: I think we're hesitant on Prince because he was really terrible two years ago.

Ace: Yeah.

BiSB: Ditto Jordan?

Ace: As first-year players are wont to be. And yeah, same with MJ. He did beat out some talented competition (recruiting-wise) as a true freshman.

Brian: True freshman though. Because OSU those guys will be second-team All Big Ten. Wisconsin is first team.

Seth: Thayer Munford is the most likely left tackle for OSU by the way. He could leap to first team.

Ace: Yeah, I’m more looking at Wyatt Davis or Josh Myers as potential third-teamers.

BiSB: Where does Ben Bredeson fall in this mix?

image

[Fuller]

Ace: Bredeson was second-team last year, even though I believe UFR wouldn’t bear that out.

Brian: Wait what? Bredeson was very mediocre.

Ace: It was a strange pick.

Seth: Longtime starter and the people who vote for those things don't look that closely at things like Clayton Thorson averaging 4 yards per play, let alone who's missing the stunt pickups.

Ace: I wouldn’t rule out him actually earning it this year. He’s added a lot of weight.

Brian: Anything could happen with Michigan's interior line and I wouldn't be too surprised.

Ace: And if—if—Onwenu can get through a game at full go….

Seth: And he was the first guy out of camp to have a starting job locked down when Michigan has a competition at the other guard spot.

Brian: The tackles will be bad, the interior OL could be bad, good, or killer.

BiSB: And Bredeson's still only 20, despite this being his 6th or 7th year on the roster. Unless Grant Newsome reverse-Poochie-departs-for-his-own-planet, I fear tackle will remain a problem.

Seth: We get to roll on James Hudson and maybe Andrew Stueber still.

Ace: Even a best-case scenario doesn’t have those guys in the all-conference conversation.

Seth: Oh, right. I'm just talking myself off this ledge over here.

Ace: We’re just hoping for Not Terrible.

BiSB: JBB is still... uh... properly shaped?

Brian: Iowa has Tristan Wirfs, who looks like an NFL tackle.

BiSB: There's no way that is a real name.

Ace: Maybe in Star Trek?

Seth: Think he was Han Solo's bestie in a fanfic.

Ace: We’ve already named every returning all-conference lineman from first to third team. I bet there’s at least a couple alpaca-out-of-nowhere spots when we look at the list at the end of the season.

Seth: Hudson and Stueber, book it!

BiSB: Purdue will have someone, maybe?

Ace: Their center, Kirk Barron, has been solid for a while.

Seth: Also Michigan State has yet another Allen brother.

BiSB: If Michigan State's offensive line is famous for two things, one of them is definitely having an Allen brother.

Brian: Wirfs and Alaric Jackson are fairly good bets to alpaca. Both passed veteran starters last year as first and second year players, respectively, and are giant. Jackson also got passed over by Drevno so he's got that going for him.

Ace: Speaking of interior linemen, Iowa has Keegan Render, who’s getting some hope and sliding to center to replace an NFL player in James Daniels.

BiSB: I may or may not be willing to roll with Wisconsin's second string line, sight unseen.

Ace: Is Cole Van Lanen even starting? Because he would at Michigan. And unless he kicks Deiter inside he’s gonna be their third tackle this year.

Seth: Since Deiter can play anywhere I think the question is more do they start Van Lanen and have Deiter ready to replace anyone. I wonder if we can get Wisconsin to trade one of them to us for Ted Nugent.

Ace: I would like Wisconsin’s problems. We have too many good linemen and our division sucks.

BiSB: Surely they would take a Tight End for a 6th lineman?

Seth: /giphy Wisconsin problems

Seth: A couple observations from FFFFs last year: Coy Cronk is terrible, full stop. Damian Prince was at right tackle and given TE help and tackle over alignments all the time because he was basically Onwenu asked to play tackle--I'd take left tackle Derwin Gray over him even though Gray isn't very good either and graded out slightly below Prince to PFF.

This is not the Draftageddon tradition of me picking a fight with Ace over the best worst offensive lineman because there is no good answer for 4th team at tackle. I'm going with "new starter who was behind Jamarco Jones last year" and "freshman all-B1G guy at the one thing Kirk Ferentz does well" because those sound like marginally better bad answers.

Hornibrook is the one who will decide on how far Wisconsin will go this season. He's a noodle armed QB with a penchant for throwing a lot of INTs. If Hornibrook can cut down on INTs, Wisconsin will be a tough out. I just don't trust Hornibrook especially when he has to face elite defense.

Well, it's good to know that everyone not named Wisconsin and OSU is looking at just as bleak of an OLine situation. Plus, we have some guys I like and Ed Warriner. If anyone can unlock average tackle play and really get the interior O-line to full BEAST mode, it's him. It's not Michigan 1999, but I'll take it.

They've finally caught on that Cronk is bad! I watched kids from the smallest schools in Indiana go around him, and Purdue basically ignore him despite him being in their backyard. IU was just desperate for linemen, and he was approximately the right size and available.

On the one hand, this is very promising to see all these terrible OL's knowing they have to go against our defense. So big win there!

On the other hand, not feeling great about our OL. But I haven't felt great about our OL in over 10 years, so (insert shrug emoji).

I think even our own homer bloggers are forgetting that picking up stunts is only a portion of the skill set needed to play OL and that Michigan's line actually blocked pretty well running the ball.

I can't guarantee great pass protection this year but we are going to maul people.

Let's look at things that help or hurt pass protection and see if we get better.

Actual Oline skill- 4 returning starters.  Better

RB Blocking-2 returning starters.  Better

TE Blocking- Mulitple returning players.   Better

Ability to run ball- See above.  Better

QB mobility- Better

QB Awareness-  Better

WR ability- Better

I don't see how anyone can argue any of these points but still people still like thinking...disaster!!!

This doesn't take into account a possible Warriner effect.

Everyone channel their inner Aaron Rodgers and RELAX!

Yeah, as Gameboy said, our passing offense wasn't just bad last year. It was abysmal. Historically terrible. Glaringly bad. Cripple the running game bad. Put your defense in an exhausted hole bad.

I'm not sure panic is the right word because we knew it was coming as soon as we didn't hear out of spring ball HUDSON GETS IT or some equally great news.

I expect the passing game to be somewhat better because we will scheme around our tackles. But it's tough to see the kind of season that we want with our tackles they way they are.

Of course, there are those rumors from what this site would call the 'edge of the internet' that Warinner has already put Mayfield as the starting RT. That would actually be good news in my opinion. We will see.

To make it even scarier, most Wisconsin depth charts don't even have Jon Dietzen starting. Ourlads.com, Badgerofhonor.com, and Madison.com all list the starting line from LT to RT as Cole Van Lanen - Michael Dieter - Tyler Biadasz - Beau Benzschabelskdglkhwel - David Edwards. 

That said, Dietzen was one of the five on the SI cover (Van Lanen wasn't) and has more starting experience.

          Hoops Hello: Cole Bajema      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hoops Hello: Cole Bajema Brian August 6th, 2018 at 12:57 PM

A couple years ago Cole Bajema was a 6'1" shooting guard at a 1A school in Lynden, Washington who was barely more likely to get a Big Ten basketball scholarship than a ham sandwich*. Now he's a 6'7" shooting guard headed to Michigan, and he doesn't even qualify as a sleeper any more. That says something about Bajema, who blew up when his unsponsored AAU team finally got to a tournament with scouts at it, and something about John Beilein, who treated Bajema like a major priority as soon as he saw him at camp:

During the first weekend of the July evaluation period, Michigan assistant coach DeAndre Haynes flew from an event in Atlanta to Seattle to watch Bajema. The following weekend in Pomona, California, Beilein was one of the first people in the gym, according to Brady, for Bajema's 8 a.m. tip-off. And last weekend, Beilein was in Vegas to get another look.

Though Bajema was not the only player Michigan was scouting at these events, he was a focal point.

"It never felt like Cole was on the back-burner or not a priority," Brady said. "It was interesting to see how much effort they put in for a kid on the Canadian border who nobody had really heard of."

The pure misery of the mid-major coaches when they saw Beilein walk into the gym must have been something.

Let's play the Feud!

*[it's reporting a Rutgers offer]

GURU RATINGS

Rivals ESPN 247 247 Comp
3*, NR NR 4*, 95 rating
#61 overall, #17 SF
N/A

Most of the scouting services haven't caught up with Bajema just yet. He was also in the virtually unranked bucket at 24/7 until his commitment prompted them to release his post-blowup ranking a bit early. A couple of Rivals analysts have mentioned Bajema positively on Twitter so he might get the same kind of bump there when they get around to it. Who knows about ESPN these days but they do have a couple of guys who scout the AAU scene pretty heavily. It might take them longer since they just did an update.

The upshot is that Bajema is probably going to be a consensus top 100 guy and his composite probably won't differ much from his current 24/7 ranking. A sleeper he is not. He's also more or less done being evaluated. He can go back to Lynden and score 80 points a game and nobody will see it. Which is fine.

[Hit THE JUMP for scouting, video, and the rest.]

SCOUTING

Literally everything not from UMHoops is based off a couple of open-entry AAU tournaments that Bajema starred in a earlier this summer, so there's no development story here. It's "here's this guy. He's pretty good." Virtually anyone who saw Bajema named him to some sort of risers list. 24/7's Josh Gershon:

"...good size and length, impressive athleticism, a pure shooting stroke with range to the perimeter, ball skills, a quick first step, crafty finishing ability and plus vision. He has nothing but upside as there's plenty of room for him to gain strength and as does, his game should only continue to improve."

Bajema featured in two other posts about players standing out in Las Vegas...

 

...breakout ... good size for the position, is very physically immature with plenty of room to get stronger and has an impressive skill set. Bajema has range to three with his jumper, can really pass it, has a respectable handle and is pretty good athlete.

 

Aaand there it is:

... has a lot of value as a shooter, but he’s not just that. He showed good footwork, fine mechanics, deep range and the ability to deck it and make a play. He’s still thin at this stage, but he’s extremely fluid, has long arms and is oozing with potential.

I wish I could bet on these things.

Elsewhere, Rivals's Eric Bossi also named him a riser after Las Vegas because he "looked like one of the best shooters in the country" and "can put the ball on the floor to create shots and moves pretty well laterally." That latter will be important if he's really going to be a 6'7" two-guard.

His coach on the game that got him his first big offers:

“The game that kind of sealed the deal for most of the guys came against Howard Pulley. They’ve got solid players across the board,” Brady said. “We started the game down 20-4, but Cole scored the next 17 and went to work. He put it on the floor, finished through contract, and ones, deep threes against a team that’s good loaded with solid, Division I guys throughout the roster.

“He took over. They switched four or five defenders on him, but it didn’t work. He had 31 points, and really showed he was not only capable of playing well, but doing it against high-level competition."

And a more general take from him:

“He’s great in ball-screen situations, which he’ll have a chance to do in that system. I think he projects as a play-making combo guard,” Brady said. “He’s a fantastic ball-handler in the half-court. He can shoot it on his own, he’s got great vision, and he’s got the length to see over the defense. He can actually capitalize on (his vision), he can make all the passes that he needs to make.”

And Matt Bain goes old school ESPN BOOM BANG scouting:

He played guard his whole life and entered high school at 6-1 before spurting up to 6-7 by his junior year. His handle is crisp. His passing is pinpoint. His long-range shot is a high-arching beauty. His decision-making off a ball screen is smart. His first step is quicker than what you’d expect from a 6-7 player.

“If he’s a 6-7 wing with his weight, he’s maybe not quite a high-major player. But as a combo guard at 6-7 — with the way he shoots it, the way he handles it, the way he passes it — all of a sudden that became very interesting to (schools),” Brady said. “I think people are starting to see what he is as a basketball player — that he can be a combo guard, he can be a 6-7 creator. He’s not a wing; he’s a guy where you put the ball in his hands and he makes plays for people.”

There's also an extensive profile from the local paper if you want to know the particular mania it takes to be a D-I player in Lynden.

OFFERS

Xavier, Virginia, Oregon State, and Washington offered after Bajema's breakout AAU performance. Various mid-majors had also offered.

HIGH SCHOOL

Lynden Christian has not sent any basketball players to DI in the Rivals era. Luke Ridnour is from nearby Blaine, though. Bajema was named 1A player of the year but mostly I'm linking this because "Nooksack Valley." Heh.

STATS

23 PPG in high school.

Tape from Las Vegas:

This is from last year:

PREDICTION BASED ON FLIMSY EVIDENCE

A super-sized, rail-thin combo guard sounds like Caris Levert again, doesn't it? Your other recent comparable is, yes, Nik Stauskas, who became a 6'6" combo guard and pick-and-roll expert in his second and final year in Ann Arbor. I like 'em both.

UPSHOT FOR THE REST OF THE CLASS

Bajema and TX SF Jalen Wilson are likely it for now. Michigan's already oversigned by one, technically; I imagine Charles Matthews was explicit that this was his last year when he decided to return. Adding a third player to the class would (probably) require Michigan to have a pretty good idea that someone else was headed for a transfer or the pros. That's possible but Michigan is unlikely to be confident enough in that departure until the late signing period.

At that point the only players left on the board are the five star one-and-done types and deep sleepers. Michigan is in on WA PF Jaden McDaniels, sort of. Franz Wagner is also out there, being a Wagner. If it's not Wagner, a third player in the class is more likely to be a Caris Levert sort who Beilein unearths.

I wonder if Michigan would have taken Cole if they also got DJ Carton and figured out the scholarship stuff later.

I'm confused re: Ham Sandwhich, future Rutgers star.

  • I thought he was already starting at QB for Rutgers. Will he count against Basketball or Football for scholarships?
  • Is mayo considered an impermissible benefit?
  • Let's say Sandwich is guarding Poole, and Poole decides to take a bite for every three he makes. When Jordan then goes 15-15 on him , could he then be convicted for  HAMslaughter?

really excited about Bajema... was going to say he seems like your typical Beilein 'sleeper' except the kid blew up... 61 is higher than Staukas or Brandon Johns...

but credit to Beilein and co, who have been on him since April...albeit a lot of that is a result of Bajema's coach reaching out and Bajema making his way to Michigan's Elite camp...

a 6'7" (possibly 6'8 by the time he enrolls) combo guard is really enticing... i don't think his handle is as good as a guy like Jalen was, but having him in the back court is something you know has Beilein rubbing his hands with glee...ditto with Haynes and Yaklich if he sticks as a 2 could be really exciting

Taller Nik Stauskas? I'm a fan.

Also, am I being too ambitious and perhaps seeing Bajema as a primary ball handler/ point-forward in certain sets?

tough question; i don't think he discussed playing the one, though i suppose it could happen depending on fouls or who the match up is against...

he did talk about hoping to get a chance at the 2 spot tho, so conceivably like MAAR i guess?

excited to see how he does here

Anyone know how tall Bajema was in those 2 highlight videos? He doesn't look 6'7" in those videos so I'm guessing those were made during his growth spurt

Today's post at UMHoops is worth a read for anyone who's a subscriber there - and if you aren't, you should be.  Basically he said similar things to Brian but gets into the future of the class a bit more with names.  Specifically, Michigan is likely done with all of the similar 3.5-4 star guys you've heard about all cycle.  They'll keep the 5-starts and Wagner on the line until the spring when they have a better feel for their ability to find another spot.  He also talks about Beilein following the trend of "positionless basketball".

On Saturday, the Rams went out to Canvas Stadium and played football. OK, really, they practiced, but it was a game-like situation and the first such situation this team has been put through.  What did we take away from the scrimmage? Well, we go "First and 10" to give you 10 quick takeaways and then we break down three of them further, in much deeper detail. K.J. Carta-Samuels, Rashaad Boddie and Warren Jackson are those three details and we hear from Mike Bobo on his key players. What did Bobo like about what Carta-Samuels has done? We also hear straight from Carta-Samuels -- the likely starting quarterback of the Rams -- how he's prepared and how he's learned the offense so well, so quickly. It wasn't all good in the scrimmage; who struggled? We look into that.  And, later in the podcast, we hear from key member of the defensive backfield, Jordan Fogal, about those DBs, we talk about Joe Parker standing up to the ESPN GameDay people about when college football season really kicks off and we talk a little Next Level Rams.

          Pelatih Liverpool Soroti Peran Henderson      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Liverpool - Pelatih Liverpool Jurgen Klopp menekankan krusialnya peran kapten Jordan Henderson. Sebab, status mantan penggawa Sunderland tersebut bukan sekedar pemain.

Posisi Henderson di tim utama Liverpool dalam tanda tanya menyusul kedatangan Fabinho dan Naby Keita musim panas lalu.

Meski Emre Can meninggalkan Anfield, The Reds masih memiliki Georginio Wijnaldum dan James Milner untuk mengisi lini tengah. Belum lagi jika Adam Lallana dan Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain kembali fit.

Meski stok melimpah, Klopp menilai posisi Henderson tetap penting. "Dia juga manusia yang baik dan pemimpin berkualitas," ujar Klopp.

"Setiap tim membutuhkan sosok seperti Henderson untuk menciptakan semangat dalam tim," sambungnya, dilansir situs resmi Liverpool.

Makin Signifikan

Henderson tiba di Liverpool pada 2011. Dia diproyeksikan sebagai pengganti Steven Gerrard. Kini berusia 28 tahun, posisinya di tim semakin signifikan.

Musim lalu Henderson menunjukkannya ketika Liverpool menembus final Liga Champions. "Henderson bisa memainkan semua tugas di lini tengah. Lagipula, saya tidak mau hanya menetapkan satu line-up. Setiap pemain punya fungsi masing-masing," ungkap Klopp.

          Emilie LeBel joins the TSO as Affiliate Composer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO) and Interim Artistic Director Sir Andrew Davis proudly announce that Canadian composer Emilie LeBelhas been selected as the TSO's new Affiliate Composer. Described as having a "deft compositional hand, unwilling to hurry ideas," and a style that is "impressively subtle and sensuous," Emilie LeBel specializes in concert-music composition focusing on textural landscapes, resonance, and variances in colour.

The Affiliate Composer position is the most significant and prestigious opportunity for an emerging composer in Canada, as it provides a chance to compose two works for one of the country's finest orchestras, allows them to gain insights into the complexities of programming at the highest artistic level, and catapults them into [inter]national prominence. In the role of TSO Affiliate Composer, Emilie LeBel will be fully integrated into all areas of the organization, with access to the inner workings of a major symphony orchestra. Earlier this year, the TSO had an open call for applications that was met with an overwhelming response. A highly sought-after position, this two-year residency fosters the development of artists and represents an important investment in the Canadian arts community. Ms. LeBel succeeds Jordan Pal, who held the position of RBC Affiliate Composer with the TSO from September 2015 to August 2018. Mr. Pal is now enjoying a thriving career, and working on a number of commissions-including a new work for the TSO to première in May 2019.

As the TSO Affiliate Composer, Emilie LeBel will work closely with Sir Andrew Davis, Composer Advisor Gary Kulesha, and the artistic staff of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. During her term with the TSO, Emilie will compose at least two works for the Orchestra. Her first work will première in January 2019. She will also participate in educational work with young audiences as part of the TSO's community-engagement programs.

"Emilie is one of the most exciting young talents in the world of contemporary composition. Her music reflects her intelligence and audaciousness," says Sir Andrew Davis. "Emilie brings to us her exceptional energy and versatility. Already known as an engaging communicator and respected for her passionate advocacy work, she will be a brilliant ambassador for the TSO. I am thrilled to welcome Emilie to the TSO's artistic team."

Emilie LeBel's compositions have been performed/recorded across North and South America, Europe, and the UK, by Mark Takeshi McGregor, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Cecilia String Quartet, Plumes Ensemble, Quatuor Bozzini, Arditti Quartet, Land's End Ensemble, Awea Duo, Luciane Cardassi, Mira Benjamin, Black House Collective, National Youth Orchestra of Canada, Thin Edge New Music Collective, Onyx Trio, 21C Festival, Winnipeg New Music Festival, and junctQín keyboard collective, among others. Emilie's artistic practice has been recognized through significant awards, including the Land's End Ensemble Composer Competition (2016), Toronto Arts Foundation Emerging Artist Award (2015), Canadian Music Centre Toronto Emerging Composer Award (2012), and the Canadian Federation of University Women Elizabeth Massey Award (2012). Her work has received support through grants from the Ontario Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts, The Banff Centre, Canadian Music Centre, University of Toronto, University of Montana, and the SOCAN Foundation.

Emilie completed a Doctorate in composition at the University of Toronto, a BFA and MA in music at York University, and an Honours Diploma in audio engineering at Harris Institute for the Arts. In July 2018, she began her appointment as Assistant Professor of Composition at MacEwan University. She previously taught at the University of Montana, University of Toronto Scarborough, McMaster University, and the Regent Park School of Music. She presently serves on the Canadian Music Centre Ontario Regional Advisory Council.

Service throughout the neighborhood

In addition to the three churches involved on Saturday, businesses such as the local Home Depot and Millcreek Gardens donated supplies to help with the various projects the stake carried out throughout the neighborhood.Cindy Hanks, another community member who felt particularly blessed by the service of the West Jordan stake, described the members in yellow hats as an answer to her prayers.Jonathan’s friend and the local scoutmaster, Kyle Tishner, who was onsite helping to build the wheelchair ramp in preparation for Jonathan’s homecoming, described how he felt lucky to be able to help someone so close to him. “It’s cool to help someone out, it just makes you feel good. But it’s one thing to help someone out that you don’t know, but it’s another when it’s practically your brother,” Tishner said.West Jordan Park stake President Jeffrey Rowland explained that service can help bring peace into individual’s lives. He said his hope was for the youth to have the opportunity to work and serve others locally as well as serve in areas where the needs might be greater than in their own stake community.

Muavao is a member of the Santa Ana United Methodist Church in California and was visiting the Tongan United Methodist church where the volunteers were working. Photo by Steve Griffin, Deseret News.The words “As-Salaam-Alaikum”—Arabic for “peace be unto you”—were exchanged repeatedly as leaders from both churches spoke to the crowd about the importance of overcoming fears and misunderstandings about religions and cultures that are unfamiliar.Throughout the day, heads donning yellow hats could be seen bobbing up and down the streets in the West Valley neighborhood encompassing the Jordan View Ward boundaries. In addition to the large-scale projects at the church and mosque, small service projects were carried out at various homes of community members who had requested assistance through the local ward.“If we were going to go down the service path for youth conference, we wanted as much as possible for there to be a personal connection,” he said. “We wanted our youth to actually meet these people, to communicate, and to pause from their labors to hear some stories about their lives because we wanted it to touch their hearts. It’s one thing to trim a weed or paint a post, but it’s another to have a conversation with a person.”“There’s new faces all around, and it’s beautiful,” Galicia said of the volunteers all around him. “They are coming to my house and they don’t know me, but by looking at their eyes I know that we have known each other for a long time.”Imam Mehtar explained that the greatest societies in history were not those built in pursuit of education and wealth, but rather those “that helped create an environment of safety, security, and goodness and well-being towards others.” He continued, “That is what has made you successful here today.”WEST VALLEY CITY, UTAHSimilarly, Imam Mehtar expressed his gratitude for the service provided to the Muslim mosque and the brotherhood and friendship fostered by the continual efforts of the Church to reach out and serve the Muslim communities.Hanks’ grandson, Jonathan, who lives with her, was recently in an accident which left him paralyzed. Without resources to build the necessary accommodations for the changes required by her grandson’s condition when he returns home from physical rehabilitation in the next month or so, Hanks expressed her gratitude for the time and resources the stake provided in building a wheelchair accessible ramp for her home. The stake has additionally helped her and her family with filing the necessary paperwork and plans to renovate the bathroom and other parts of the home that need adjustment for her grandson’s condition.Bishop Mark Sears of the Jordan View Ward, along with his ward council, spent several weeks working with the West Jordan Park Stake leaders to generate a list of community members who could benefit from the stake’s day of service.The service projects on Saturday ranged from landscaping the mosque’s grounds to helping clean and update the interior and exterior building of the nearby Tongan United Methodist Church, and on to building a wheelchair accessible entrance ramp for a local teen who was recently paralyzed. The leaders of the West Jordan Utah Park Stake said they hoped the efforts would teach the youth of the stake that serving others can bring peace into their lives. The project, which was implemented as part of the stake’s youth conference, was built on the Church’s 2018 youth theme “Peace in Christ.” Volunteers paint a bridge at the Tongan United Methodist church. Photo by Steve Griffin, Deseret News.On Saturday, August 4, the group crowding inside the room consisted mostly of members of the West Jordan Utah Park Stake and members of the Islamic Center congregation. They volunteered their Saturday to perform acts of service throughout the West Valley neighborhood where the mosque is located and, together, they represented a united effort to improve interfaith dialogue and build lasting relations among the diverse communities in the Salt Lake Valley.

Continuing relationshipsAlthough Galicia was born and raised in Mexico, he said that Salt Lake City feels like his home now, and that the gospel is a huge part of that for him. “I feel so blessed to live here where the LDS community is so much bigger than other places,” Galicia said.Although the day of service was initially conceptualized as a large-scale community service project, its actual rendering became a testament to the power of brotherhood, kindness, and Christlike love as it brought together the efforts of three separate faith communities joined in a mutual effort to beautify and bring peace to the local community. Imam Muhammed Shoayb talks with members of the West Jordan Utah Park Stake following lunch at the Islamic Society of Greater Salt Lake Mosque. Photo by Steve Griffin, Deseret News.Standing in his kitchen as volunteers in yellow hats bustled around him and his furniture, Oscar Galicia expressed his gratitude for the work the West Jordan stake was providing for his family. He explained that as a single father trying to balance going back to school for an engineering degree and taking care of his children, house and yard work have necessarily taken a seat on the backburner.President Rowland said that after seeing various secular and faith populations uniting in unexpected ways to serve this community, “it was neat to consider that we ended up going beyond just local ward members and were able to do something helpful for those not of our faith as well.”It’s only when partnering together for positive change that religion can serve a true humanitarian purpose, said Abdul Afridi, trustee for the Islamic Society of Greater Salt Lake. It needs to be a combined effort, he explained.“So we call each other the same as you do,” Pastor Ofahengaue said, indicating another similarity between Pacific Islanders and Latter-day Saints.He described his gratitude for the Utah community which he feels has been very welcoming and has made an effort to learn about who Muslims are and what Islam is all about. Members of the West Jordan Utah Park Stake and members of the Islamic Society of Greater Salt Lake work together outside the Mosque. Photo by Steve Griffin, Deseret News.Service for a day, purpose for the futureFor many of the youth, it was their first time in a Muslim mosque and they sat with raptured attention, facing the mosque’s imam, Muhamed Shoayb Mehtar, as he spoke about the particular similarities between the Islamic and Latter-day Saint faiths.“I think that is really a piece of ministering,” Parry said. “You know it’s not just this one-time thing, but people made a connection and are excited to come back and continue serving.”Describing their gratitude for the service and the relationships built throughout the day, the leaders of both the mosque and the Tongan Methodist church said they hoped to continue to partner with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as much as possible.He said seeing people all over his home, painting, cleaning, trimming bushes and more, has helped strengthen his sense of belonging in his community.“Our goal is not only the Chesterfield area,” Afridi said. “Our goal is to the next and next neighborhood, then the next state, then all over the world.”“I’m just so blessed to have them here,” Hanks said. “It’s been really hard to see my grandson like that, but our prayers are just answered every day.”“I think the Utahns and LDS populations have been very supportive and idea sharing over generations,” Imam Mehtar said. “And that if we use this given model that we are seeing here in Utah on a global level, we could create phenomenal changes.”

Photo by Steve Griffin, Deseret News.Admitting there is a lot more work needed by his church than can be accomplished in a single day or by a single volunteering stake, Pastor Ofahengaue said the West Jordan Park Stake’s efforts are reflective of the positive relationship the churches have with one another. He said their efforts exemplify the type of bridge building that communities need in order to rally around one another and be lifted up together.“Mormons and Pacific Islanders have similar lifestyles because they are both so family oriented,” Pastor Ofahengaue said. He noted that the cultural similarities between the Utah and Pacific Islander populations have allowed him to feel welcome and at home since moving to Utah five years ago.Pastor David Ofahengaue of the Tongan United Methodist Church said it was a surprise connection with a city council member that helped the West Jordan stake become aware of his church’s needs for renovation and cleaning. He added that he feels a deep connection with the Latter-day Saint population based on the longstanding presence of the Church in the Pacific Islands.A personal approach to service“God understands that we have more similarities between us than differences,” Imam Mehtar said. Members of the West Jordan Utah Park Stake carry flowers on the grounds of the Islamic Society of Greater Salt Lake Mosque during an all-day service project in the Chesterfield area. More than 200 volunteers worked at private homes and several churches nearby the LDS meetinghouse near 2100 S. and Redwood Road in West Valley City on Saturday, August 4, 2018.

          Why the Feast of St. Dominic is not actually the Dominicans' biggest feast day      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Vatican City, Aug 8, 2018 / 03:38 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Wednesday marks the Feast Day of St. Dominic, the 13th century priest known for founding the Order of Preachers, commonly called the Dominicans, and for spreading devotion to the Rosary.

Surprisingly, though, the Dominicans don’t usually do much to celebrate the saint’s Aug. 8 feast day.

While the August feast “is for us certainly always a feast,” Dominican Fr. Angelo Giuseppe Urru told CNA, it’s not the primary one.

Instead, the order celebrates “more solemnly” May 24, which is the Solemnity of the Translation of St. Dominic.

This unusual feast day commemorates the day St. Dominic’s remains were moved, or “translated,” from their original burial spot behind an altar of the church of San Nicolo della Vigne in Bologna, Italy to a more prominent place in the church in 1233.

For many Dominican provinces, this day is the big celebration, Fr. Urru said.

The move of St. Dominic’s body was carried out at the request of Pope Gregory IX, about one year before the saint’s canonization on July 13, 1234, only 13 years after his death.

As recorded in a letter by Bl. Jordan of Saxony, one of the first leaders of the Dominicans, the brothers were very anxious before the move of the body, because they were worried that when the wooden coffin was uninterred from the stone sepulcher, the body would give off a foul odor, since it had been buried in a poorly constructed tomb, exposed to water and heat.

But they received a great surprise, because when the tomb was opened, a wonderful and sweet perfume emanated from the coffin instead.

“Its sweetness astonished those present, and they were filled with wonder at this strange occurrence. Everyone shed tears of joy, and fear and hope rose in all hearts,” Bl. Jordan wrote.

He reported that the odor remained and if anyone touched a hand or some object to the body, the odor immediately attached itself and lingered for a long time.

“The body was carried to the marble sepulcher where it would rest – it and the perfume that it poured forth. This marvelous aroma which the holy body emitted was evidence to all how much the saint had truly been the good odor of Christ,” he wrote.

By 1240, the church containing St. Dominic’s remains had been expanded into a basilica, and renamed for the saint.

Now, every year Dominican friars, sisters, and laity all over the world celebrate St. Dominic on May 24.

Mass is celebrated at the Basilica of Santa Sabina, the mother church of the Dominicans in Rome, for this feast.

The tradition is for a priest of the Order of Friars Minor, commonly called the Franciscans, to say the Mass and preach. After Mass, the procession of friars stops at the first side chapel, where the Blessed Sacrament is kept, to sing the O Lumen, the Dominican antiphon to St. Dominic.

Besides the tomb with the saint’s body, which is in the basilica in Bologna, there are few relics of St. Dominic in existence.

One relic, a piece of his skull, can be found in Rome. It is at the church of Santa Maria del Rosario, part of a Dominican monastery located on Monte Mario, the tallest hill of Rome.

Fr. Urru said he was not sure how it came to be kept in the monastery, but that it originated when some students in Bologna stole it to have in their chapel.

“There is also the breviary of St. Dominic, a small breviary,” he said.

In 2016, the Dominicans celebrated the 800th anniversary of their founding with a Jubilee Year, culminating in an International Congress for the Mission of the Order, which took place Jan. 17-21 in Rome.

Fr. Urru voiced gratitude for the blessing of vocations, which allow the order’s work to continue.

Thankfully, though there are some provinces which are very small, many are growing and are very strong, he noted, such as those in Vietnam and Africa. The United States as well has seen a good number of new vocations, he said.

Around the world, “there are many initiatives of the order,” and they are working hard still, just as they have the last 800 years.

Ultimately, though, he said, the future of the order is “in the hands of God.”

          The Hurry Up: Ohio State Commits Set to Play on National Television While Several Pledges Receive Bump in Latest Composite Rankings      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Hurry Up is your nightly dose of updates from the Ohio State football recruiting trail, keeping tabs on the latest from commits and targets from around the country.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

Several Ohio State commits will be featured on national television this fall as part of the GEICO ESPN High School Football Showcase, an 11-week, 18-game schedule that pits some of the nation’s top programs against one another.

Among this year’s slate of games, Scottsdale, Arizona, Chaparral — led by Buckeyes four-star quarterback commit Jack Miller III and four-star running back pledge Darvon Hubbard — will take on Phoenix Pinnacle on Friday, Oct. 19. The Pioneers are quarterbacked by Oklahoma five-star commit Spencer Rattler.

The showcase wraps up with a highly anticipated matchup between top-ranked IMG Academy and No. 10 Hoover, Alabama — which you may recall from MTV’s Two-A-Days fame. Ohio State four-star cornerback commit Lejond Cavazos and the Ascenders are looking to complete their fourth-consecutive undefeated season.

Another notable game on the schedule features a trio of the Buckeyes’ top targets, as Washington D.C. St. John’s College goes up against Good Counsel, Maryland. The No. 5 Cadets are led by five-star linebacker Mekhail Sherman, four-star wide receiver Rakim Jarrett and four-star defensive tackle Tre Williams, all of whom visited Columbus for the first time last month.

In addition to the teams mentioned above, this year’s showcase also includes No. 3 Grayson, Georgia; No. 12 Las Vegas Bishop Gorman; and No. 16 Archer, Georgia. Every game will be televised on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.

SOME WELL-DESERVED MOVEMENT

With summer camps and 7-on-7 tournaments in the rearview mirror and actual football right around the corner, a new batch of 247Sports Composite Player Rankings — which combines prospect ratings from 247Sports, ESPN and Rivals — were unveiled earlier this week.

Ohio State holds commitments from 15 prospects, which is good for the eighth-best class in the country and No. 1 in the Big Ten. They hail from 10 different states, which includes three from within the state’s borders; two apiece from Georgia, Indiana and Tennessee; and one from Florida, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Texas and West Virginia.

You can see where the Buckeyes’ pledges stack up nationally (as well as their movement up or down the rankings) below:


          Three Freshmen Who Are Likely to Play Early in 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

There is a reason Ohio State has been able to maintain its level of success over the last 20-plus years. Its recruiting, starting with the John Cooper era, has been at an elite level. 

Yes, Woody Hayes and Earle Bruce pulled in some of the greatest players in Ohio State history during their time as head coach, but since Cooper arrived, the recruiting has been at a different level. 

Cooper could never get over the hump in the 1990's despite having arguably the best team in the country on more than one occasion, while Jim Tressel won a national title with a roster primarily made up of Cooper recruits. Tressel got to two more national title games with his own players and despite losing them both, kept Ohio State near the top of college football. 

Fast forward to 2018, the Buckeyes once again have one of the top recruiting classes in the nation stepping onto campus. While rookies don't normally play early in their careers at Ohio State, there are a few that have stood out. 

We have made these predictions earlier this season, but after watching practice on Tuesday, we give you our top three freshmen most likely to get early playing time as Buckeyes. 

Jaelen Gill, H-Back

While the majority of freshmen get their early reps in covering both kicks and punts, Jaelen Gill was spotted returning them at practice on Tuesday with the likes of Demario McCall and C.J. Saunders. 

Gill is one of the most dynamic athletes Ohio State has landed since Urban Meyer arrived in Columbus, and has both the hands of a true wide receiver and the vision and quickness of a running back. He is tailor-made for the H-back position in Ohio State's offense, but will likely see his first reps as a Buckeye as a return man, perhaps in the kicking game. 

After Parris Campbell suffered head injuries last year on kick returns, Ohio State has an opening to fill, and Gill could very well be the answer. He is sure-handed and is as dangerous as any freshman in the country with the ball in his hands. Pair him with McCall as the deep men on kick return, and the Buckeyes might even take one back for a touchdown this year. 

Jeremy Ruckert, Tight End

Before Ohio State launched an investigation into him following accusations he knew about alleged domestic abuse by Zach Smith, Meyer spoke at Big Ten Media Days about how tight end Jeremy Ruckert will play for the Buckeyes as a freshman. 

Ruckert has the potential to be the best receiving tight end Ohio State has ever had, but will also need to block in the Buckeye offense, an area he still needs to improve in. However, we have seen the Buckeyes use multiple two-tight end sets in recent years, and Ruckert could easily slide in next to Luke Farrell and make an impact in the passing game over the middle. 

At 6-foot-6, 240 pounds, he gives either Dwayne Haskins or Tate Martell a big target to throw to and at that size, can take the hits from linebackers and safeties. Ruckert is a player who can split out wide or line up in a three-point stance as a traditional tight end and be a weapon, and that alone should get him on the field early at Ohio State. 

Josh Proctor, Safety

With Damon Webb gone to the NFL, Ohio State has an opening at safety next to Jordan Fuller, and Josh Proctor could be a dark horse candidate to fill the position. 

Isaiah Pryor appeared to be the early favorite to win the position, but has had an entire spring and summer to win the job and even at Big Ten Media Days, Meyer wasn't sure who was going to win the role. Last season, Fuller and Erick Smith split reps before eventually Fuller took the job full-time, so we could see a similar battle this season, with Proctor being the young player who could snag the spot. 

At 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, Proctor is only seven pounds lighter than Pryor and has the potential to be a longtime starter in Columbus. If Pryor can't separate himself from the pack early, look for Proctor to be the next man up at that spot. 

Honorable Mention: Tommy Togiai

Togiai was the first freshman to lose his black stripe, and for good reason. He has all the potential in the world to be a big time contributor as a freshman. 

However, he is behind the likes of Dre'Mont Jones and Robert Landers, a pair of veterans who will likely get most of the reps on the interior this season. Jones specifically figures to be an every-down player, leaving less reps for a player like Togiai in the middle. 

Togiai will get reps this season, just maybe not as much as the guys listed above. 


          Michael Jordan's Potential Move To Center Is About Putting Ohio State's Five Best Offensive Linemen On The Field      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Ohio State could be in the process of moving its most experienced guard to the center position for the third year in a row.

The Buckeyes appeared to be at least considering that possibility during their fourth practice of fall camp on Tuesday – the first practice that was open to the media this preseason – when Michael Jordan, Ohio State’s starting left guard for the past two seasons, took snaps at center.

In the early portion of practice that was open to all media, Jordan was simply seen snapping the ball in various drills, with Brady Taylor still lining up at center with the first-team offensive line.

Big Ten Network representatives, however, were allowed to watch more of the practice, and BTN’s Dave Revsine posted a video from later in the practice that appeared to show Jordan working as the center with the first-team offensive line – with Malcolm Pridgeon taking his place at left guard – during a team drill.

The Buckeyes’ decision to experiment with the possibility of moving Jordan to center shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, considering that they have placed a huge premium on experience at the position – which Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer has described as the “apex” position – in recent years.

In each of Greg Studrawa’s first two seasons as Ohio State’s offensive line coach, the Buckeyes have followed the same formula of sliding their most experienced guard one spot over to man the middle of the line. In 2016, Pat Elflein moved from right guard to center for his fifth-year senior season, and he won the Rimington Trophy. In 2017, Billy Price made the same move for his fifth-year senior season, and he also won the Rimington Trophy.

Jordan is just a true junior, but he was a first-team All-Big Ten left guard for the Buckeyes last year, and he offers the same potential to be one of the best centers in the country.

Ultimately, though, Ohio State’s decision on whether to move Jordan to center or keep him at left guard might have more to do with the Buckeyes’ other interior offensive linemen than it has to do with Jordan himself.

Taylor, Ohio State’s backup center for the past two seasons, could still emerge as the starting center for this season. This is Taylor’s last chance, as a fifth-year senior, to seize a spot in the Buckeyes’ starting lineup, and he has drawn praise from his coaches and teammates dating back to the spring.

“Brady did really well this spring,” Studrawa said after the conclusion of spring practices. “He got more consistent. I needed him to do some certain things and I still need to see him do some certain things based on what we do in our offense with the center position. So he has to grow with some other things we’re working on this summer and being a powerful run blocker is one of them. But Brady had a good solid spring and it’s going to be a battle when the fall comes, there’s no doubt.”

Redshirt freshman Josh Myers, who made the move from guard to center in the spring, could also still be a contender to earn the starting job at the position.

That said, the Buckeyes also have at least three potential candidates to start at guard outside of Jordan, including another fifth-year senior in Pridgeon, who is also looking to crack the starting lineup for the first time and drew considerable praise for his improvement this spring.

“He’s a big, powerful man,” Studrawa said of Pridgeon after spring practices. “I couldn’t be more excited about him. That’s going to be a battle there, too, to find a place where that guy’s going to play.”

Malcolm Pridgeon
The development of Malcolm Pridgeon (front) is one reason why Michael Jordan (back) could end up moving to center.

Demetrius Knox, who started the final eight games of last season at right guard, appears to be in line to remain the starter at that spot, but Branden Bowen, who started the first six games of last season at right guard before fracturing his tibia and fibula, is also a candidate to earn his way back into the starting lineup that he is back on the field practicing.

Redshirt freshman Wyatt Davis – a five-star recruit in 2017 – could also thrust his way into the competition for a starting guard spot.

All together, that quartet of players gives the Buckeyes the depth they need at the guard position to move Jordan to center if they ultimately decide that to be in their best interest.

Ohio State’s objective is to form a lineup that puts its best five offensive linemen on the field, and Meyer – who is currently on paid administrative leave and unable to evaluate the competition taking place in fall camp – said at Big Ten Media Days that he “would be disappointed” if the Buckeyes had to field a lineup that didn’t consist of their best five offensive linemen.

Jordan, of course, still must prove that he is capable of making the transition to center – and handling the snapping and the responsibility of calling out plays that comes with it – for the Buckeyes to make that move. If he does, though, that flexibility will make it easier for Ohio State to determine its best five, and where he plays will likely be determined by who else joins him among that best five.

Jordan and fellow third-year starter Isaiah Prince are locks to be among that five, while Knox is widely expected to be, too. Thayer Munford, who is currently running as the first-team left tackle, also appears likely to be in that five.

If all of that is true, then it’s likely the last spot will come down to Taylor, Pridgeon and Bowen.

Should Pridgeon or Bowen prevail, that could mean Jordan snapping the ball to Dwayne Haskins when Ohio State plays Oregon State in its season opener on Sept. 1.

Mapping a Nature Recovery Network

Luke Massey/2020VISION

We're influencing policies to help wildlife thrive

We’re working to influence the policies that set the rules that govern where and how development happens, and where public payments for nature go.

We make the case upward to national Government to ensure local planning authorities have the right tools available to set strong policies to protect, restore and enhance wildlife; and that any public payments to farmers, foresters and other landowners and managers are used to best effect for nature’s recovery.

We work at a local level to provide advice and work on the ground to help this happen, and keep happening across Lancashire, Greater Manchester and North Merseyside, and in our Irish Sea.

Locally and nationally, we’re working with others to gather evidence to promote the planning and mapping of a Nature Recovery Network on land to guide development to areas that are less important for nature, and to target funding and action to where it will best help nature to recover and thrive. Already some networks are mapped in Lancashire and in the Liverpool City region, and work is well underway for Greater Manchester.

Protecting wildlife on your doorstep

We’re working to influence planning policies in the Local Plans that guide development in each of the 26 local planning authorities across our area, as well as in the spatial frameworks for the Greater Manchester & Liverpool City Region, and in the Marine Spatial Plan for the Irish Sea off northwest England.  

We want to:

  • Ensure that greenspace in new development on land delivers an overall improvement for nature and protects and expands local populations of highly threatened species.
  • Ensure that nature has a chance to recover on the bed of the Irish Sea and in the waters above, whilst integrating necessary development at sea.

          WVPT Presents The Last Five Years At MAC      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

West Virginia Public Theatre (WVPT) brings another piece of Broadway to North-Central West Virginia: Directed by Jen Coles, The Last Five Years is an intimate, funny, and devastatingly honest examination of life and love. The musical opens on Friday, September 7 at 8pm, with additional shows on September 8, 13-15 at 8pm and a matinee on September 9 at 2pm. All performances will take place at the Tanner Theatre at Monongalia Arts Center (MAC).

In The Last Five Years, an up-and-coming novelist and a struggling actress recall the highs and lows of their relationship through a series of songs, starting from opposite points in time and meeting in the middle.

Jason Robert Brown's Drama Desk Award winning musical premiered in 2001 with Sherie Renee Scott (Aida) as Cathy and Norbert Leo Butz (Wicked) as Jamie and has since been adapted into a film featuring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan. It has been performed to rave reviews all over the world and is now making its professional Morgantown premiere starring Nora Perone and Daniel Stevens, with direction by Jen Coles and musical direction by R.J. Nestor.

Perone and Stevens, both West Virginians and alumni of WVU, have taken their acting careers far, to Los Angeles and London, respectively. Both are returning to their home state to support local arts organizations.

WVPT is partnering with the award-winning UK theatre company Streetlights, People! Productions on this show and working with local and International Artists. "Collaborations like this are crucial to the WVPT mission," says Jerry McGonigle, Artistic Director of West Virginia Public Theatre. "We are honored and excited about this production and proud to bring it to the Morgantown community."

Follow the show on Twitter and Instagram at @wvpublictheatre for behind-the-scenes photos and videos.

Tickets are now available for this performance. Admission is $18, or $15 for groups of 10+. Tickets may be purchased at the MAC Lobby Desk, by phone (304-292-3325), and online at www.monartscenter.com/shop. Group tickets may be purchased by phone or in person only.

          BWW Review: 4615 Theatre Company's MACBETH is Mired by Miscalculated Performances      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Charlene V. Smith and Jared H. Graham in Macbeth.
Photo by Ryan Maxwell Photography.

Tackling Macbeth is no minor feat. Few shows inspire as much dread both onstage and off as Shakespeare's "Scottish Play." Daringly dark in both plot and theme, Macbeth relies heavily on the performances of the eponymous Scot and his wife to propel the plot along compellingly and with varying intensity. 4615 Theatre Company's production, unfortunately, falls victim to most of the pitfalls which riddle this complicated work. The final result is a revival which is bogged down by a slow-paced first act and lead performances which are unable to reveal anything new about this work.

Macbeth is the quintessential political drama-and one you likely read in your high school English class. The brave Scottish general Macbeth (Jared H. Graham) is prophesied to become the King of Scotland. Unable to shake this future from his mind, Macbeth's ambition, coupled with Lady Macbeth's (Charlene V. Smith) unwavering encouragement, spurs him to murder King Duncan to take the Scottish throne. As more Scots begin questioning Macbeth's meteoric rise to power, the dangerous web Macbeth and Lady Macbeth have woven becomes more and more tangled while the body count rises. Only once the brave Macduff (Tim German) combats Macbeth at Dunsinane Hill is the tyrannical reign ended.

Joshua Simon and Jared H. Graham in Macbeth.

Heavy is the head that wears the crown. Such a statement is apt for Macbeth, which weighs heavily on the actor who wears the Scottish crown as the will-be king. There's a necessary trajectory to Macbeth's arc: the noble general must begin skeptical before letting his thirst for power consume his actions and subsequently create guilt that drives the crucial dinner scene at the top of the second act. Mr. Graham is able to embody Macbeth's tyrannical nature effectively by the play's end, but the first two-thirds of the production lack a necessary shift in personality from gallant general to tyrannical king. This missing shift therefore prevents the plot from building at a suitable pace, largely because the plot is so dependent on this noticeable shift in Macbeth's nature.

Simultaneously, Ms. Smith lacks the bloodthirsty nature that makes Lady Macbeth one of Shakespeare's most compelling female characters. From the play's start, Lady Macbeth seems too tentative and not at all eager for her husband to pursue greater things. When she casts off the possibility of children by wishing for a higher power to "unsex me here," there should be a clear thirst for something bigger than her current state. Instead, Lady Macbeth is too empathetic to those around her, constantly emoting and feeling genuinely for those around her. These are good traits for most people (and most actors) but Lady Macbeth is a creature concerned with herself above all else but, unfortunately, this is never made clear during 4615 Theatre Company's production. Ms. Smith does have a solid "out, damn spot" monologue where she skillfully executes a downward spiral into madness. This moment would be more impressive, however, if her Lady Macbeth didn't seem so close to crumbling so much earlier in the production.

Although Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are unable to successfully step into their roles as villains, the heroes of this production, Macduff and Lady Macduff (Alani Kravitz), shine brightly. Ms. Kravitz relishes her short moments as Lady Macduff, creating a compelling performance with a small part that stays with you after the production thanks to a great emotional second act. After his wife's passing Mr. German's Macduff truly shines-fueling his Dunsinane confrontation with a mournful energy that gives an unexpected amount of depth to their combat. It's a surprising, and very welcome, performance indeed.

Directed by 4615's Artistic Director, Jordan Friend, this production of Macbeth feels cramped and stifled. Presented in Silver Spring's Highwood Theatre, the show is done in-the-round. This decision doesn't seem to be supported by the production as the arena configuration doesn't add any additional layers to the production. It's possible this setup was chosen to create a closer connection between the audience and the actors but this goal isn't fulfilled as this show keeps its emotional distance throughout the evening.

The show does a strong job of pulling off this epic Shakespearean drama in all technical areas. Benjamin Weigel provides solid costuming that effectively establishes time, place and status for all characters. Brian Gillick does a good job creating a vivid scene with very few set pieces during the production. Mr. Friend's music composition is effective and helps add an additional layer to this Macbeth.

Though there's a valiant effort present in this production, the complicated nature of Shakespeare's work strains the fledgling 4615 Theatre Company. When the dust has settled at the play's conclusion, the thrill of Macduff's victory will likely be less satisfying than it was intended. Instead, the production's missteps prevent it from reaching new dramatic heights.

4615 Theatre Company's production of Macbeth is playing in repertory with Moira Buffini's Dinner through August 19 at the Highwood Theatre in Silver Spring, MD. For tickets and information, click here.

NUEVA YORK — ¿Son sus Nike originales? Póngalo en duda.



Cinco individuos fueron detenidos este martes en Nueva York acusados de haber falsificado cientos de miles de tenis Nike, con un valor total de más de $70 millones de dólares.



Según las autoridades, los arrestados importaban calzado de imitación desde China y luego le añadían falsos logos de Nike para venderlo en Estados Unidos como si fuese original.



Los cinco acusados se enfrentan a penas máximas de 20 años de cárcel en caso de ser declarados culpables, según dijo en un comunicado la Fiscalía federal del Distrito Sur de Nueva York.



“Estos cinco individuos supuestamente fueron parte de una red de falsificación a gran escala, importando cerca de medio millón de Nike falsos“, explicó en la nota uno de los agentes encargados de la investigación, Angel M. Melendez.



Según las autoridades, Miyuki Suen, Jian Min Huang, Songhua Qu, Kin Lui Chen y Fangrang Qu importaron entre enero de 2016 y julio de este año un mínimo de 42 contenedores cargados de zapatillas que imitaban los modelos Air Jordan de Nike.



Una vez añadidos los logos, el calzado era almacenado en varios puntos de Nueva York para proceder a su venta.



En los registros llevados a cabo en la operación, las autoridades requisaron cientos de miles de zapatillas y máquinas utilizadas para completar las falsificaciones.



El valor de más de $70 millones de dólares citado por la fiscalía es el que los productos habrían tenido en el mercado al hacerse pasar por originales.

          Jaylen Brown guarantees NBA Finals appearance      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
At the beginning of a new era for the Eastern Conference, the new champion is wide open for the taking — but is there a new king in town already? Jaylen Brown seems to think so, according to what Brown said on the Pull Up Podcast with CJ McCollum and Jordan Schultz “We’re getting to the Finals.”  “No question about it.” Despite a tough exit from the Eastern Conference Finals against the Cavaliers, Brown has every right to be confident and excited about his Celtics after coming up just one game short of the NBA Finals. Now, with LeBron James headed to the Los Angeles Lakers — the door for Brown and the Celtics has opened wide.In his second season in the NBA, Brown averaged 14.5 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 70 games during the regular season, shooting 46.5 percent from the field and 39.5 percent from three. Brown took major strides in just one season after averaging 6.6 points per game during his rookie campaign.

I wouldn't say that Robert Venditti's run on this title was perfect, but it was a fun ride through most of it. We got to see some great story arcs, and some not so great story arcs, unfold during Robert's run.

Although I would prefer that Hal star in a series on his own, it was fun seeing him in a team book like this. All the Earth GL's starring in this title got a little focus and that is bound to make a lot of fans happy who prefer one GL over another.

In the final issue, we see Hal sticking to the no kill rule and showing himself the better man over Tomar-Tu. The threat of the Darkstars are defeated and Hector Hammond mysteriously vanishes to parts unknown.

It's a shame what happened to Tomar-Tu, I can see his perspective on things, but it left me shaking my head. It was just so out of character to me. After many years of watching him be a GL, he suddenly turns traitor? It was just too out of left field and too out of character for my tastes. But I suppose the story wouldn't have had much stake if Hal was fighting a no nothing villain in this story's climax. It's also a shame he killed himself as a redemptive story for him is now out of the question. If Hal can be redeemed, so can Tomar-Tu. A poor end to a once great character.

Looking back on the series as a whole, I do wish Robert had spent time on exploring why and how Hal became a being of pure willpower. Yes, it was because of Krona's gauntlet, but that's all we got. Plus, exactly how powerful is Hal now? We didn't get that answer either outside of his feats he pulled off.

I also wish Robert hadn't had Soranik Natu stay a member of the Sinestro Corps. She's much more interesting as a Green Lantern.

I also wish Robert had given Arisia more to do other than be there in background scenes shooting things up with her ring and not given any dialogue whatsoever. A waste of a perfectly good character.

As someone who's been wanting Hal to marry Carol, I was ticked off when Geoff Johns apparently had plans to get them married, but then he departed the book and Robert split the couple apart. And then he kept Hal apart from Carol during his entire run on Green Lantern and this title. But good on Robert to end his run with Hal kissing Carol. Good on him to listen to fan complaints about this and ending his run on such a high note. I really hope Grant Morrison will continue this relationship. If it hadn't been Hal's turn as Parallax and delay after delay, Hal would have been married to Carol a LONG time ago. Frankly, it should have happened a long time ago and hopefully it will happen someday soon.

I can't wait for The Green Lantern #1. :)

          Brie Larson lands role in 'Just Mercy' opposite Michael B. Jordan      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

[USA], Aug 09 (ANI): American actress Brie Larson is all set to join Michael B. Jordan in his upcoming flick, 'Just Mercy'.

Based on the memoir by Bryan Stevenson, the movie will feature the founder of the Equal Justice Initiative who fights on behalf of the innocent and death-row prisoners trapped in the criminal justice system, confirmed The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie will also show Stevenson's first case of Walter McMillian, a black man who was convicted and given the death sentence for a crime he didn't commit.

Jordan will produce the movie, while the flick will be directed by 'The Glass Castle's Destin Cretton. 'Just Mercy' will hit the screens next month in Atlanta.

Meanwhile, Larson will also be seen in 'Captian Marvel', which is slated to release in 2019. (ANI)

Yes, diamat; Hegel and Marx both partook in "Faustian" events. Hegel is foundational and his dialectic is "alchemy". "The Collective unconscience"; that's Jung, more "alchemy". It appears Jordan Peterson is one academic who is aware of the "Alchemical" underpinnings who couches his comments with "scientific" jargon. He wrote about this subject genre in depth in his book, "Maps of Meaning". Just run what ever I say through a Jordan Peterson filter. We are saying the same thing. My communication of it is simply less sophisticated and more blunt, impatiently blurting out the nakedness of the Emperor; yanking the curtain down exposing the man behind it. I think Dr. Peterson does an excellent job cutting through less obvious parts that interact nicely with your focus. The target of the Globalists is "all commoners".

          Danny Picard: No surprise here if Eric Decker plays huge role for Patriots       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Certainly, after all these years, you wouldn’t expect Bill Belichick to find a diamond in the rough before the start of a season. There’s no way the Patriots would ever be able to bring somebody in during training camp and turn him into an impact player during the upcoming season.

 

So, what, am I supposed to believe that wide receiver Eric Decker is going to gain the trust of Tom Brady in such a short period of time and have immediate success with this offense?

 

I just hope you can sense my sarcasm.

 

Of course I expect Belichick to make a move like this. And I absolutely believe that Decker can be an impact player on the Patriots’ offense. In fact, I’ll be more surprised if the Decker signing doesn’t work out for New England.

 

The Patriots signed Decker to a one-year deal last week, reportedly worth a max value of $2.1 million at a cap hit of $1.5 million. If he shows he doesn’t belong, then it would only cost the Pats $75,000, which is the guaranteed money in the deal.

 

So it’s a low-risk, high-reward deal. But it’s one that I expect to pay off for both sides.

 

Decker turned 31 in March. He’s coming off a season with the Tennessee Titans in which he had 54 receptions for 563 yards and only one touchdown in all 16 regular-season games. That came after three years with the New York Jets. 

 

While he was with the Jets, his former team, the Denver Broncos, won a Super Bowl. When Decker was with the Broncos for the first four seasons of his NFL career, he went to the Super Bowl in the 2013 season, only to have one reception for six yards in a 43-8 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

 

Decker wanted to play for a contender. And no better place for him to go than to Foxboro. 

 

The Patriots are the favorite to win Super Bowl LIII. But they’re also in need of a wide receiver, especially for the first four weeks of the season, when Julian Edelman will be serving his four-game PED suspension.

 

And with Jordan Matthews getting injured and then released, there’s even more of an opportunity for Decker to play a key role in Brady’s passing attack.

 

There’s always the possibility that, by the time you read this, Decker has been cut. Then we’d all say, “At least they gave it a shot.” But for that to happen, it would mean Decker either wasn’t in football shape, or he wasn’t motivated enough to absorb the Patriot Way. 

 

He’s only 31, and he’s on the record over the summer on SiriusXM saying that he wanted to go somewhere where he can “compete for a Super Bowl and be in a good system.” 

 

Check, and check. 

 

And with a one-year deal, it’s clear that Decker is also playing to prove that he’s worthy of a multi-year deal into his mid-30’s. No better way to do that than by being a key contributor to a Super Bowl contender.

 

If he has the right mindset — and all indications are that he does — then Brady isn’t going to complain about adding an eight-year veteran who has 5,816 career receiving yards and 53 career touchdown receptions.

 

Regardless of where this relationship between the Patriots and Decker goes, I’m confident their offense will be just fine with Rob Gronkowski and Chris Hogan as Brady’s top-two targets until Edelman returns. But if Decker does end up playing an important role, it’ll be just another feather in Belichick’s cap.

 

And certainly, after all these years, you couldn’t be surprised to see that.

WHO IS A MODEL

A model (from Middle French modelle) is a person with a role either to promote, display, or advertise commercial products (notably fashion clothing) or to serve as a visual aide for people who are creating works of art or to pose for photography.

Modelling ("modeling" in American English) is considered to be different from other types of public performance, such as acting or dancing. Although the difference between modelling and performing is not always clear, appearing in a film or a play is not generally considered to be "modelling".

Types of modelling include: fashion, glamour, fitness, bikini, fine art, body-part, promotional and commercial print models. Models are featured in a variety of media formats including: books, magazines, films, newspapers, internet and TV. Fashion models are sometimes featured in films: (Looker), reality TV shows (America's Next Top Model, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency), and music videos: ("Freedom! '90", "Wicked Game", "Daughters", and "Blurred Lines").

Celebrities, including actors, singers, sports personalities and reality TV stars, frequently take modelling contracts in addition to their regular work.

HISTORY OF MODELING

Early years

Modelling as a profession was first established in 1853 by Charles Frederick Worth, the "father of haute couture", when he asked his wife, Marie Vernet Worth, to model the clothes he designed. The term "house model" was coined to describe this type of work. Eventually, this became common practice for Parisian fashion houses. There were no standard physical measurement requirements for a model, and most designers would use women of varying sizes to demonstrate variety in their designs.

With the development of fashion photography, the modelling profession expanded to photo modelling. Models remained fairly anonymous, and relatively poorly paid, until the late 1950's. One of the first well-known models was Lisa Fonssagrives, who was very popular in the 1930's. Fonssagrives appeared on over 200 Vogue covers, and her name recognition led to the importance of Vogue in shaping the careers of fashion models. In 1946, Ford Models was established by Eileen and Gerard Ford in New York; it is one of the oldest model agencies in the world. One of the most popular models during the 1940's was Jinx Falkenburg who was paid $25 per hour, a large sum at the time. During the 1940's and 1950's, Wilhelmina Cooper, Jean Patchett, Dovima, Dorian Leigh, Suzy Parker, Evelyn Tripp, Carmen Dell'Orefice, and Lisa Fonssagrives dominated fashion. Dorothea Church was among the first black models in the industry to gain notoriety in Paris. However, these models were unknown outside the fashion community. Compared to today's models, the models of the 1950's were more voluptuous. Wilhelmina Cooper's measurements were 38"-24"-36" whereas Chanel Iman's measurements are 32"-23"-33".

The 1960s and the beginning of the industry

In the 1960's, the modelling world began to establish modelling agencies. Throughout Europe, secretarial services acted as models' agents charging them weekly rates for their messages and bookings. For the most part, models were responsible for their own billing. In Germany, agents were not allowed to work for a percentage of a person's earnings, so referred to themselves as secretaries. With the exception of a few models travelling to Paris or New York, travelling was relatively unheard of for a model. Most models only worked in one market due to different labor laws governing modelling in various countries. In the 1960's, Italy had many fashion houses and fashion magazines but was in dire need of models. Italian agencies would often coerce models to return to Italy without work visas by withholding their pay. They would also pay their models in cash, which models would have to hide from customs agents. It was not uncommon for models staying in hotels such as La Louisiana in Paris or the Arena in Milan to have their hotel rooms raided by the police looking for their work visas. It was rumored that competing agencies were behind the raids. This led many agencies to form worldwide chains; for example, the Marilyn Agency has branches in Paris and New York.

By the late 1960's, London was considered the best market in Europe due to its more organised and innovative approach to modelling. It was during this period that models began to become household names. Models like: Jean Shrimpton, Joanna Lumley, Tania Mallet, Celia Hammond, Twiggy, Penelope Tree, and Pauline Stone dominated the London fashion scene and were well paid, unlike their predecessors. Twiggy became The Face of '66 at the age of 16. At this time, model agencies were not as restrictive about the models they represented, although it was uncommon for them to sign shorter models. Twiggy, who stood at 5 feet 6 inches (168 cm) with a 32" bust and had a boy's haircut, is credited with changing model ideals. At that time, she earned £80 an hour, while the average wage was £15 a week.

In 1967, seven of the top model agents in London formed the Association of London Model Agents. The formation of this association helped legitimize modelling and changed the fashion industry. Even with a more professional attitude towards modelling, models were still expected to have their hair and makeup done before they arrived at a shoot. Meanwhile, agencies took responsibility for a model's promotional materials and branding. That same year, former top fashion model Wilhelmina Cooper opened up her own fashion agency with her husband called Wilhelmina Models. By 1968, FM Agency and Models 1 were established and represented models in a similar way that agencies do today. By the late 1960's, models were treated better and were making better wages. One of the innovators, Ford Models, was the first agency to advance models money they were owed and would often allow teen models, who did not live locally, to reside in their house, a precursor to model housing.

The 1970's and 1980's

The innovations of the 1960's flowed into the 1970's fashion scene. As a result of model industry associations and standards, model agencies became more business minded, and more thought went into a model's promotional materials. By this time, agencies were starting to pay for a model's publicity. In the early 1970's, Scandinavia had many tall, leggy, blonde-haired, blue-eyed models and not enough clients. It was during this time that Ford Models pioneered scouting. They would spend time working with agencies holding modelling contests. This was the precursor to the Ford Models Supermodel of the World competition which was established in 1980. Ford also focused their attentions on Brazil which had a wide array of seemingly "exotic" models, which eventually led to establishment of Ford Models Brazil. It was also during this time that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue debuted. The magazine set a trend by photographing "bigger and healthier" California models, and printing their names by their photos, thus turning many of them into household names and establishing the issue as a hallmark of supermodel status.

The 1970's marked numerous milestones in fashion. Beverly Johnson was the first African American to appear on the cover of U.S. Vogue in 1974. Models, including Grace Jones, Donyale Luna, Minah Bird, Naomi Sims, and Toukie Smith were some of the top black fashion models who paved the way for black women in fashion. In 1975, Margaux Hemingway landed a then-unprecedented million-dollar contract as the face of Fabergé's Babe perfume and the same year appeared on the cover of Time magazine, labelled one of the "New Beauties," giving further name recognition to fashion models.

Many of the world's most prominent modelling agencies were established in the 1970's and early 1980's. These agencies created the standard by which agencies now run. In 1974, Nevs Models was established in London with only a men's board, the first of its kind. Elite Models was founded in Paris in 1975 as well as Friday's Models in Japan. The next year Cal-Carries was established in Singapore, the first of a chain of agencies in Asia. In 1977, Select Model Management opened its doors as well as Why Not Models in Milan. By the 1980's, agencies such as Premier Model Management, Storm Models, Mikas, Marilyn, and Metropolitan Models had been established.

By the 1980's, most models were able to make modelling a full-time career. It was common for models to travel abroad and work throughout Europe. As modelling became global, numerous agencies began to think globally. In 1980, Ford Models, the innovator of scouting, introduced the Ford Models Supermodel of the World contest. That same year, John Casablancas opened Elite Models in New York. In 1981, cosmetics companies began contracting top models to lucrative endorsement deals. By 1983, Elite developed its own contest titled the Elite Model Look competition. In New York during the 1980's there were so-called "model wars" in which the Ford and Elite agencies fought over models and campaigns. Models were jumping back and forth between agencies such Elite, Wilhelmina, and Ford. In New York, the late 1980's trend was the boyish look in which models had short cropped hair and looked androgynous. In Europe, the trend was the exact opposite. During this time, a lot of American models who were considered more feminine looking moved abroad. By the mid-1980's, big hair was made popular by some musical groups, and the boyish look was out. The curvaceous models who had been popular in the 1950's and early 1970's were in style again. Models like Patti Hansen earned $200 an hour for print and $2,000 for television plus residuals. It was estimated that Hansen earned about $300,000 a year during the 1980's.

The 1990's to present

The early 1990's were dominated by the high fashion models of the late 1980's. In 1990, Linda Evangelista famously said to Vogue, "we don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day". Evangelista and her contemporaries, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz and Stephanie Seymour, became arguably the most recognizable models in the world, earning the moniker of "supermodel", and were boosted to global recognition and new heights of wealth for the industry. In 1991, Turlington signed a contract with Maybelline that paid her $800,000 for twelve days' work each year.

By the mid‑1990's, the new "heroin chic" movement became popular amongst New York and London editorial clients. While the heroin chic movement was inspired by model Jaime King, who suffered from a heroin addiction, it was Kate Moss who became its poster child through her ads for Calvin Klein. In spite of the heroin chic movement, model Claudia Schiffer earned $12 million. With the popularity of lingerie retailer Victoria's Secret, and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, there was a need for healthier-looking supermodels such as Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum to meet commercial modelling demand. The mid‑1990's also saw many Asian countries establishing modelling agencies.

By the late 1990's, the heroin chic era had run its course. Teen-inspired clothing infiltrated mainstream fashion, teen pop music was on the rise, and artists such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera popularized pleather and bare midriffs. As fashion changed to a more youthful demographic, the models who rose to fame had to be sexier for the digital age. Following Gisele Bundchen's breakthrough, a wave of Brazilian models including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Ana Beatriz Barros rose to fame on runways and became popular in commercial modelling throughout the 2000's. Some attribute this to decisions by magazines to replace models with celebrities their covers.

In the late 2000's, the Brazilians fell out of favor on the runways. Editorial clients were favoring models with a china-doll or alien look to them, such as Gemma Ward and Lily Cole. During the 2000's, Ford Models and NEXT Model Management were engaged in a legal battle, with each agency alleging that the other was stealing its models.

However, the biggest controversy of the 2000's was the health of high-fashion models participating in fashion week. While the health of models had been a concern since the 1970's, there were several high-profile news stories surrounding the deaths of young fashion models due to eating disorders and drug abuse. The British Fashion Council subsequently asked designers to sign a contract stating they would not use models under the age of sixteen. On March 3, 2012, Vogue banned models under the age of sixteen as well as models who appeared to have an eating disorder. Similarly, other countries placed bans on unhealthy, and underage models, including Spain, Italy, and Israel, which all enacted a minimum body mass index (BMI) requirement.

The often thin shape of many fashion models has been criticized for warping girls' body image and encouraging eating disorders. Organizers of a fashion show in Madrid in September 2006 turned away models who were judged to be underweight by medical personnel who were on hand. In February 2007, six months after her sister, Luisel Ramos, also a model, died, Uruguayan model Eliana Ramos became the third fashion model to die of malnutrition in six months. The second victim was Ana Carolina Reston. Luisel Ramos died of heart failure caused by anorexia nervosa just after stepping off the catwalk. In 2015, France passed a law requiring models to be declared healthy by a doctor in order to participate in fashion shows. The law also requires re-touched images to be marked as such in magazines.

In 2013, New York toughened its child labor law protections for models under the age of eighteen by passing New York Senate Bill No. 5486, which gives underage models the same labor protections afforded to child actors. Key new protections included the following: underage models are not to work before 5:00 pm or after 10:00 pm on school nights, nor were they to work later than 12:30 am on non-school nights; the models may not return to work less than twelve hours after they leave; a pediatric nurse must be on site; models under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult chaperone; parents or guardians of underage models must create a trust fund account into which employers will transfer a minimum of 15% of the child model's gross earnings; and employers must set aside time and a dedicated space for educational instruction.

TYPES OF MODELING

Runway modelling

Runway models showcase clothes from fashion designers, fashion media, and consumers. They are also called "live models" and are self-employed. They are wanted to be over the height of 5'8" for men and 5'6" for women. Runway models work in different locations, constantly travelling between those cities where fashion is well known—London, Milan, New York City, and Paris. Second-tier international fashion center cities include: Rome, Florence, Venice, Brescia, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Moscow. Cities where catalog work comprises the bulk of fashion packaging, merchandising and marketing work are: Miami, San Francisco, Sydney, Chicago, Toronto, Mexico City, Tokyo, Hamburg, London, and Beijing.

The criteria for runway models include certain height and weight requirements. During runway shows, models have to constantly change clothes and makeup. Models walk, turn, and stand in order to demonstrate a garment's key features. Models also go to interviews (called "go and sees") to present their portfolios. The more experience a model has, the more likely she/he is to be hired for a fashion show. A runway model can also work in other areas, such as department store fashion shows, and the most successful models sometimes create their own product lines or go into acting.

The British Association of Model Agents (AMA) says that female models should be around 34"-24"-34" and between 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) and 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) tall. The average model is very slender. Those who do not meet the size requirement may try to become a plus-size model. According to the New York Better Business Career Services website, the preferred dimensions for a male model are a height of 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) to 6 ft 2 in (189 cm), a waist of 29–32 in (73.66–81.28 cm) and a chest measurement of 39–40 in (99.06–101.60 cm). Male runway models are notably skinny and well toned.

Male and female models must also possess clear skin, healthy hair, and attractive facial features. Stringent weight and body proportion guidelines form the selection criteria by which established, and would‑be, models are judged for their placement suitability, on an ongoing basis. There can be some variation regionally, and by market tier, subject to current prevailing trends at any point, in any era, by agents, agencies and end-clients.

Formerly, the required measurements for models were 35"-23.5"-35" in (90-60-90 cm), the alleged measurements of Marilyn Monroe. Today's fashion models tend to have measurements closer to the AMA-recommended shape, but some - such as Afghan model Zohre Esmaeli - still have 35"-23.5"-35" measurements. Although in some fashion centers, a size 00 is more ideal than a size 0.

Plus-size models

Plus-size models are models who generally have larger measurements than editorial fashion models. The primary use of plus-size models is to appear in advertising and runway shows for plus-size labels. Plus-size models are also engaged in work that is not strictly related to selling large-sized clothing, e.g., stock photography and advertising photography for cosmetics, household and pharmaceutical products and sunglasses, footwear and watches. Therefore, plus-size models do not exclusively wear garments marketed as plus-size clothing. This is especially true when participating in fashion editorials for mainstream fashion magazines. Some plus-size models have appeared in runway shows and campaigns for mainstream retailers and designers such as Gucci, Guess, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Levi's and Versace Jeans.

Fit models

A fit model works as a sort of live mannequin to give designers and pattern makers feedback on the fit, feel, movement, and drape of a garment to be produced in a given size.

Glamour models

Glamour modelling focuses on sexuality and thus general requirements are often unclear, being dependent more on each individual case. Glamour models can be any size or shape. There is no industry standard for glamour modelling and it varies greatly by country. For the most part, glamour models are limited to modelling in calendars, men's magazines, such as Playboy, bikini modelling, lingerie modelling, fetish modelling, music videos, and extra work in films. However, some extremely popular glamour models transition into commercial print modelling, appearing in swimwear, bikini and lingerie campaigns.

It is widely considered that England created the market for glamour modelling when The Sun established Page 3 in 1969, a section in their newspaper which now features topless models. In the beginning, the newspaper featured sexually suggestive images of Penthouse and Playboy models. It was not until 1970 that models appeared topless. In the 1980's, The Sun's competitors followed suit and produced their own Page 3 sections. It was during this time that glamour models first came to prominence with the likes of Samantha Fox. As a result, the United Kingdom has a very large glamour market and has numerous glamour modelling agencies to this day.

It was not until the 1990's that modern glamour modelling was established. During this time, the fashion industry was promoting models with waif bodies and androgynous looking women, which left a void. Several fashion models, who were deemed too commercial, and too curvaceous, were frustrated with industry standards, and took a different approach. Models such as Victoria Silvstedt left the fashion world and began modelling for men's magazines. In the previous decades, posing nude for Playboy resulted in models losing their agencies and endorsements. Playboy was a stepping stone which catapulted the careers of Victoria Silvstedt, Pamela Anderson, and Anna Nicole Smith. Pamela Anderson became so popular from her Playboy spreads that she was able to land roles on Home Improvement and Baywatch.

In the mid-1990's, a series of men's magazines were established such as Maxim, FHM, and Stuff. At the same time, magazines including Sweden's Slitz re-branded themselves as men's magazines. Pre-internet, these magazines were popular among men in their late teens and early twenties because they were considered to be more tasteful than their predecessors. With the glamour market growing, fashion moved away from the waifs and onto Brazilian bombshells. The glamour market, which consisted mostly of commercial fashion models and commercial print models, became its own genre due to its popularity. Even in a large market like the United Kingdom, however, glamour models are not usually signed exclusively to one agency as they can not rely financially on one agency to provide them with enough work. It was, and still is, a common practice for glamour models to partake in kiss-and-tell interviews about their dalliances with famous men. The notoriety of their alleged bed-hopping often propels their popularity and they are often promoted by their current or former fling. With Page 3 models becoming fixtures in the British tabloids, glamour models such as Jordan, now known as Katie Price, became household names. By 2004, Page 3 regulars earned anywhere from £30,000 to 40,000, where the average salary of a non-Page 3 model, as of 2011, was between £10,000 and 20,000. In the early 2000's, glamour models, and aspiring glamour models, appeared on reality television shows such as Big Brother to gain fame. Several Big Brother alumni parlayed their fifteen minutes of fame into successful glamour modelling careers. However, the glamour market became saturated by the mid-2000's, and numerous men's magazines including Arena, Stuff and FHM in the United States went under. During this time, there was a growing trend of glamour models, including Kellie Acreman and Lauren Pope, becoming DJs to supplement their income. In a 2012 interview, Keeley Hazell said that going topless is not the best way to achieve success and that "[she] was lucky to be in that 1% of people that get that, and become really successful."

Alternative models

An alternative model is any model who does not fit into the conventional model types and may include punk, goth, fetish, and tattooed models or models with distinctive attributes. This type of modeling is usually a cross between glamour modeling and art modeling. Publishers such as Goliath Books in Germany introduced alternative models and punk photography to larger audiences. Billi Gordon, then known as Wilbert Anthony Gordon, was the top greeting card model in the world and inspired a cottage industry including greeting cards, T-shirts, fans, stationery, gift bags, etc.

Parts models

Some models are employed for their body parts. For example, hand models may be used to promote products held in the hand and nail-related products. (e.g. rings, other jewelry or nail polish). They are frequently part of television commercials. Many parts models have exceptionally attractive body parts, but there is also demand for unattractive or unusual looking body parts for particular campaigns.

Hands are the most in-demand body parts. Feet models are also in high demand, particularly those who fit sample size shoes. Models are also successful modelling other specific parts including abs, arms, back, bust or chest, legs, and lips. Some petite models (females who are under 5 ft 6 in (1.68 m) and do not qualify as fashion models) have found success in women's body part modelling.

Parts model divisions can be found at agencies worldwide. Several agencies solely represent parts models, including Hired Hands in London, Body Parts Models in Los Angeles, Carmen Hand Model Management in New York and Parts Models in New York. Parts Models is the largest parts agency, representing over 300 parts models.

Fitness models

Fitness modelling focuses on displaying a healthy, toned physique. Fitness models usually have defined muscle groups. The model's body weight is heavier due to muscle weighing more than fat; however, they have a lower body fat percentage because the muscles are toned and sculpted. Fitness models are often used in magazine advertising. Sometimes they are certified personal fitness trainers. However, other fitness models are also athletes and compete as professionals in fitness and figure competitions. There are several agencies in large markets such as New York, London, Germany that have fitness modelling agencies. While there is a large market for these models, most of these agencies are a secondary agency promoting models who typically earn their primary income as commercial models. Plus there are also magazines that gear towards specifically fitness modeling or getting fit and in shape. Fitness Models showcase their fitter side of their bodies on the covers gearing towards specific competitions in fitness and figure competitions.

Gravure idols

A gravure idol, often abbreviated to gradol, is a Japanese female model who primarily models on magazines, especially men's magazines, photobooks or DVDs.

"Gravure" (グラビア) is a Wasei-eigo term derived from "rotogravure", which is a type of intaglio printing process that was once a staple of newspaper photo features. The rotogravure process is still used for commercial printing of magazines, postcards, and cardboard product packaging.

Gravure idols appear in a wide range of photography styles and genres. Their photos are largely aimed at male audiences with poses or activities intended to be provocative or suggestive, generally accentuated by an air of playfulness and innocence rather than aggressive sexuality. Although gravure models may sometimes wear clothing that exposes most of their body, they seldom appear fully nude. Gravure models may be as young as pre-teen age up to early thirties. In addition to appearing in mainstream magazines, gravure idols often release their own professional photobooks and DVDs for their fans. Many popular female idols in Japan launched their careers by starting out as gravure idols.

Commercial print and on-camera models

Commercial print models generally appear in print ads for non-fashion products, and in television commercials. Commercial print models can earn up to $250 an hour. Commercial print models are usually non-exclusive, and primarily work in one location.

There are several large fashion agencies that have commercial print divisions, including Ford Models in the United States.

Promotional models

A promotional model is a model hired to drive consumer demand for a product, service, brand, or concept by directly interacting with potential consumers. The vast majority of promotional models tend to be attractive in physical appearance. They serve to provide information about the product or service and make it appealing to consumers. While the length of interaction may be short, the promotional model delivers a live experience that reflects on the product or service he or she is representing. This form of marketing touches fewer consumers for the cost than traditional advertising media (such as print, radio, and television); however, the consumer's perception of a brand, product, service, or company is often more profoundly affected by a live person-to-person experience.

Marketing campaigns that make use of promotional models may take place in stores or shopping malls, at tradeshows, special promotional events, clubs, or even at outdoor public spaces. They are often held at high traffic locations to reach as many consumers as possible, or at venues at which a particular type of target consumer is expected to be present.

Spokesmodels

"Spokesmodel" is a term used for a model who is employed to be associated with a specific brand in advertisements. A spokesmodel may be a celebrity used only in advertisements (in contrast to a brand ambassador who is also expected to represent the company at various events), but more often the term refers to a model who is not a celebrity in their own right. A classic example of the spokesmodel are the models hired to be the Marlboro Man between 1954 and 1999.

Trade show models

Trade show models work a trade show floor-space or booth, and represent a company to attendees. Trade show models are typically not regular employees of the company, but are freelancers hired by the company renting the booth space. They are hired for several reasons: trade show models can make a company's booth more visibly distinguishable from the hundreds of other booths with which it competes for attendee attention. They are articulate and quickly learn and explain or disseminate information on the company and its product(s) and service(s). And they can assist a company in handling a large number of attendees which the company might otherwise not have enough employees to accommodate, possibly increasing the number of sales or leads resulting from participation in the show.

Atmosphere models

Atmosphere models are hired by the producers of themed events to enhance the atmosphere or ambience of their event. They are usually dressed in costumes exemplifying the theme of the event and are often placed strategically in various locations around the venue. It is common for event guests to have their picture taken with atmosphere models. For example, if someone is throwing a "Brazilian Day" celebration, they would hire models dressed in samba costumes and headdresses to stand or walk around the party.

Podium models

Podium models differ from runway models in that they don't walk down a runway, but rather just stand on an elevated platform during fashion presentation. They are kind of like live mannequins placed in various places throughout an event. Attendees can walk up to the models and inspect and even feel the clothing. Podium Modeling is a practical alternative way of presenting fashion when space is too limited to have a full runway fashion show.

Art models

Art models pose for any visual artist as part of the creative process. Art models are often paid professionals who provide a reference or inspiration for a work of art that includes the human figure. The most common types of art created using models are figure drawing, figure painting, sculpture and photography, but almost any medium may be used. Although commercial motives dominate over aesthetics in illustration, its artwork commonly employs models. Models are most frequently employed for art classes or by informal groups of experienced artists that gather to share the expense of a model.

Instagram models

Instagram models are a recent phenomenon due to the rise of social media. These models gain their popularity due to how many followers they have on social media. Some Instagram models gain high-profile modeling gigs and become household names. High-profile model, Jen Selter, kicked off the Instagram model craze. Recently, Anna Faith and Caitlin O'Connor among many others, have had great success as Instagram Models.

WHO IS A MODEL

A model (from Middle French modelle) is a person with a role either to promote, display, or advertise commercial products (notably fashion clothing) or to serve as a visual aide for people who are creating works of art or to pose for photography.

Modelling ("modeling" in American English) is considered to be different from other types of public performance, such as acting or dancing. Although the difference between modelling and performing is not always clear, appearing in a film or a play is not generally considered to be "modelling".

Types of modelling include: fashion, glamour, fitness, bikini, fine art, body-part, promotional and commercial print models. Models are featured in a variety of media formats including: books, magazines, films, newspapers, internet and TV. Fashion models are sometimes featured in films: (Looker), reality TV shows (America's Next Top Model, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency), and music videos: ("Freedom! '90", "Wicked Game", "Daughters", and "Blurred Lines").

Celebrities, including actors, singers, sports personalities and reality TV stars, frequently take modelling contracts in addition to their regular work.

HISTORY OF MODELING

Early years

Modelling as a profession was first established in 1853 by Charles Frederick Worth, the "father of haute couture", when he asked his wife, Marie Vernet Worth, to model the clothes he designed. The term "house model" was coined to describe this type of work. Eventually, this became common practice for Parisian fashion houses. There were no standard physical measurement requirements for a model, and most designers would use women of varying sizes to demonstrate variety in their designs.

With the development of fashion photography, the modelling profession expanded to photo modelling. Models remained fairly anonymous, and relatively poorly paid, until the late 1950's. One of the first well-known models was Lisa Fonssagrives, who was very popular in the 1930's. Fonssagrives appeared on over 200 Vogue covers, and her name recognition led to the importance of Vogue in shaping the careers of fashion models. In 1946, Ford Models was established by Eileen and Gerard Ford in New York; it is one of the oldest model agencies in the world. One of the most popular models during the 1940's was Jinx Falkenburg who was paid $25 per hour, a large sum at the time. During the 1940's and 1950's, Wilhelmina Cooper, Jean Patchett, Dovima, Dorian Leigh, Suzy Parker, Evelyn Tripp, Carmen Dell'Orefice, and Lisa Fonssagrives dominated fashion. Dorothea Church was among the first black models in the industry to gain notoriety in Paris. However, these models were unknown outside the fashion community. Compared to today's models, the models of the 1950's were more voluptuous. Wilhelmina Cooper's measurements were 38"-24"-36" whereas Chanel Iman's measurements are 32"-23"-33".

The 1960s and the beginning of the industry

In the 1960's, the modelling world began to establish modelling agencies. Throughout Europe, secretarial services acted as models' agents charging them weekly rates for their messages and bookings. For the most part, models were responsible for their own billing. In Germany, agents were not allowed to work for a percentage of a person's earnings, so referred to themselves as secretaries. With the exception of a few models travelling to Paris or New York, travelling was relatively unheard of for a model. Most models only worked in one market due to different labor laws governing modelling in various countries. In the 1960's, Italy had many fashion houses and fashion magazines but was in dire need of models. Italian agencies would often coerce models to return to Italy without work visas by withholding their pay. They would also pay their models in cash, which models would have to hide from customs agents. It was not uncommon for models staying in hotels such as La Louisiana in Paris or the Arena in Milan to have their hotel rooms raided by the police looking for their work visas. It was rumored that competing agencies were behind the raids. This led many agencies to form worldwide chains; for example, the Marilyn Agency has branches in Paris and New York.

By the late 1960's, London was considered the best market in Europe due to its more organised and innovative approach to modelling. It was during this period that models began to become household names. Models like: Jean Shrimpton, Joanna Lumley, Tania Mallet, Celia Hammond, Twiggy, Penelope Tree, and Pauline Stone dominated the London fashion scene and were well paid, unlike their predecessors. Twiggy became The Face of '66 at the age of 16. At this time, model agencies were not as restrictive about the models they represented, although it was uncommon for them to sign shorter models. Twiggy, who stood at 5 feet 6 inches (168 cm) with a 32" bust and had a boy's haircut, is credited with changing model ideals. At that time, she earned £80 an hour, while the average wage was £15 a week.

In 1967, seven of the top model agents in London formed the Association of London Model Agents. The formation of this association helped legitimize modelling and changed the fashion industry. Even with a more professional attitude towards modelling, models were still expected to have their hair and makeup done before they arrived at a shoot. Meanwhile, agencies took responsibility for a model's promotional materials and branding. That same year, former top fashion model Wilhelmina Cooper opened up her own fashion agency with her husband called Wilhelmina Models. By 1968, FM Agency and Models 1 were established and represented models in a similar way that agencies do today. By the late 1960's, models were treated better and were making better wages. One of the innovators, Ford Models, was the first agency to advance models money they were owed and would often allow teen models, who did not live locally, to reside in their house, a precursor to model housing.

The 1970's and 1980's

The innovations of the 1960's flowed into the 1970's fashion scene. As a result of model industry associations and standards, model agencies became more business minded, and more thought went into a model's promotional materials. By this time, agencies were starting to pay for a model's publicity. In the early 1970's, Scandinavia had many tall, leggy, blonde-haired, blue-eyed models and not enough clients. It was during this time that Ford Models pioneered scouting. They would spend time working with agencies holding modelling contests. This was the precursor to the Ford Models Supermodel of the World competition which was established in 1980. Ford also focused their attentions on Brazil which had a wide array of seemingly "exotic" models, which eventually led to establishment of Ford Models Brazil. It was also during this time that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue debuted. The magazine set a trend by photographing "bigger and healthier" California models, and printing their names by their photos, thus turning many of them into household names and establishing the issue as a hallmark of supermodel status.

The 1970's marked numerous milestones in fashion. Beverly Johnson was the first African American to appear on the cover of U.S. Vogue in 1974. Models, including Grace Jones, Donyale Luna, Minah Bird, Naomi Sims, and Toukie Smith were some of the top black fashion models who paved the way for black women in fashion. In 1975, Margaux Hemingway landed a then-unprecedented million-dollar contract as the face of Fabergé's Babe perfume and the same year appeared on the cover of Time magazine, labelled one of the "New Beauties," giving further name recognition to fashion models.

Many of the world's most prominent modelling agencies were established in the 1970's and early 1980's. These agencies created the standard by which agencies now run. In 1974, Nevs Models was established in London with only a men's board, the first of its kind. Elite Models was founded in Paris in 1975 as well as Friday's Models in Japan. The next year Cal-Carries was established in Singapore, the first of a chain of agencies in Asia. In 1977, Select Model Management opened its doors as well as Why Not Models in Milan. By the 1980's, agencies such as Premier Model Management, Storm Models, Mikas, Marilyn, and Metropolitan Models had been established.

By the 1980's, most models were able to make modelling a full-time career. It was common for models to travel abroad and work throughout Europe. As modelling became global, numerous agencies began to think globally. In 1980, Ford Models, the innovator of scouting, introduced the Ford Models Supermodel of the World contest. That same year, John Casablancas opened Elite Models in New York. In 1981, cosmetics companies began contracting top models to lucrative endorsement deals. By 1983, Elite developed its own contest titled the Elite Model Look competition. In New York during the 1980's there were so-called "model wars" in which the Ford and Elite agencies fought over models and campaigns. Models were jumping back and forth between agencies such Elite, Wilhelmina, and Ford. In New York, the late 1980's trend was the boyish look in which models had short cropped hair and looked androgynous. In Europe, the trend was the exact opposite. During this time, a lot of American models who were considered more feminine looking moved abroad. By the mid-1980's, big hair was made popular by some musical groups, and the boyish look was out. The curvaceous models who had been popular in the 1950's and early 1970's were in style again. Models like Patti Hansen earned $200 an hour for print and $2,000 for television plus residuals. It was estimated that Hansen earned about $300,000 a year during the 1980's.

The 1990's to present

The early 1990's were dominated by the high fashion models of the late 1980's. In 1990, Linda Evangelista famously said to Vogue, "we don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day". Evangelista and her contemporaries, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz and Stephanie Seymour, became arguably the most recognizable models in the world, earning the moniker of "supermodel", and were boosted to global recognition and new heights of wealth for the industry. In 1991, Turlington signed a contract with Maybelline that paid her $800,000 for twelve days' work each year.

By the mid‑1990's, the new "heroin chic" movement became popular amongst New York and London editorial clients. While the heroin chic movement was inspired by model Jaime King, who suffered from a heroin addiction, it was Kate Moss who became its poster child through her ads for Calvin Klein. In spite of the heroin chic movement, model Claudia Schiffer earned $12 million. With the popularity of lingerie retailer Victoria's Secret, and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, there was a need for healthier-looking supermodels such as Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum to meet commercial modelling demand. The mid‑1990's also saw many Asian countries establishing modelling agencies.

By the late 1990's, the heroin chic era had run its course. Teen-inspired clothing infiltrated mainstream fashion, teen pop music was on the rise, and artists such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera popularized pleather and bare midriffs. As fashion changed to a more youthful demographic, the models who rose to fame had to be sexier for the digital age. Following Gisele Bundchen's breakthrough, a wave of Brazilian models including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Ana Beatriz Barros rose to fame on runways and became popular in commercial modelling throughout the 2000's. Some attribute this to decisions by magazines to replace models with celebrities their covers.

In the late 2000's, the Brazilians fell out of favor on the runways. Editorial clients were favoring models with a china-doll or alien look to them, such as Gemma Ward and Lily Cole. During the 2000's, Ford Models and NEXT Model Management were engaged in a legal battle, with each agency alleging that the other was stealing its models.

However, the biggest controversy of the 2000's was the health of high-fashion models participating in fashion week. While the health of models had been a concern since the 1970's, there were several high-profile news stories surrounding the deaths of young fashion models due to eating disorders and drug abuse. The British Fashion Council subsequently asked designers to sign a contract stating they would not use models under the age of sixteen. On March 3, 2012, Vogue banned models under the age of sixteen as well as models who appeared to have an eating disorder. Similarly, other countries placed bans on unhealthy, and underage models, including Spain, Italy, and Israel, which all enacted a minimum body mass index (BMI) requirement.

The often thin shape of many fashion models has been criticized for warping girls' body image and encouraging eating disorders. Organizers of a fashion show in Madrid in September 2006 turned away models who were judged to be underweight by medical personnel who were on hand. In February 2007, six months after her sister, Luisel Ramos, also a model, died, Uruguayan model Eliana Ramos became the third fashion model to die of malnutrition in six months. The second victim was Ana Carolina Reston. Luisel Ramos died of heart failure caused by anorexia nervosa just after stepping off the catwalk. In 2015, France passed a law requiring models to be declared healthy by a doctor in order to participate in fashion shows. The law also requires re-touched images to be marked as such in magazines.

In 2013, New York toughened its child labor law protections for models under the age of eighteen by passing New York Senate Bill No. 5486, which gives underage models the same labor protections afforded to child actors. Key new protections included the following: underage models are not to work before 5:00 pm or after 10:00 pm on school nights, nor were they to work later than 12:30 am on non-school nights; the models may not return to work less than twelve hours after they leave; a pediatric nurse must be on site; models under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult chaperone; parents or guardians of underage models must create a trust fund account into which employers will transfer a minimum of 15% of the child model's gross earnings; and employers must set aside time and a dedicated space for educational instruction.

TYPES OF MODELING

Runway modelling

Runway models showcase clothes from fashion designers, fashion media, and consumers. They are also called "live models" and are self-employed. They are wanted to be over the height of 5'8" for men and 5'6" for women. Runway models work in different locations, constantly travelling between those cities where fashion is well known—London, Milan, New York City, and Paris. Second-tier international fashion center cities include: Rome, Florence, Venice, Brescia, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Moscow. Cities where catalog work comprises the bulk of fashion packaging, merchandising and marketing work are: Miami, San Francisco, Sydney, Chicago, Toronto, Mexico City, Tokyo, Hamburg, London, and Beijing.

The criteria for runway models include certain height and weight requirements. During runway shows, models have to constantly change clothes and makeup. Models walk, turn, and stand in order to demonstrate a garment's key features. Models also go to interviews (called "go and sees") to present their portfolios. The more experience a model has, the more likely she/he is to be hired for a fashion show. A runway model can also work in other areas, such as department store fashion shows, and the most successful models sometimes create their own product lines or go into acting.

The British Association of Model Agents (AMA) says that female models should be around 34"-24"-34" and between 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) and 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) tall. The average model is very slender. Those who do not meet the size requirement may try to become a plus-size model. According to the New York Better Business Career Services website, the preferred dimensions for a male model are a height of 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) to 6 ft 2 in (189 cm), a waist of 29–32 in (73.66–81.28 cm) and a chest measurement of 39–40 in (99.06–101.60 cm). Male runway models are notably skinny and well toned.

Male and female models must also possess clear skin, healthy hair, and attractive facial features. Stringent weight and body proportion guidelines form the selection criteria by which established, and would‑be, models are judged for their placement suitability, on an ongoing basis. There can be some variation regionally, and by market tier, subject to current prevailing trends at any point, in any era, by agents, agencies and end-clients.

Formerly, the required measurements for models were 35"-23.5"-35" in (90-60-90 cm), the alleged measurements of Marilyn Monroe. Today's fashion models tend to have measurements closer to the AMA-recommended shape, but some - such as Afghan model Zohre Esmaeli - still have 35"-23.5"-35" measurements. Although in some fashion centers, a size 00 is more ideal than a size 0.

Plus-size models

Plus-size models are models who generally have larger measurements than editorial fashion models. The primary use of plus-size models is to appear in advertising and runway shows for plus-size labels. Plus-size models are also engaged in work that is not strictly related to selling large-sized clothing, e.g., stock photography and advertising photography for cosmetics, household and pharmaceutical products and sunglasses, footwear and watches. Therefore, plus-size models do not exclusively wear garments marketed as plus-size clothing. This is especially true when participating in fashion editorials for mainstream fashion magazines. Some plus-size models have appeared in runway shows and campaigns for mainstream retailers and designers such as Gucci, Guess, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Levi's and Versace Jeans.

Fit models

A fit model works as a sort of live mannequin to give designers and pattern makers feedback on the fit, feel, movement, and drape of a garment to be produced in a given size.

Glamour models

Glamour modelling focuses on sexuality and thus general requirements are often unclear, being dependent more on each individual case. Glamour models can be any size or shape. There is no industry standard for glamour modelling and it varies greatly by country. For the most part, glamour models are limited to modelling in calendars, men's magazines, such as Playboy, bikini modelling, lingerie modelling, fetish modelling, music videos, and extra work in films. However, some extremely popular glamour models transition into commercial print modelling, appearing in swimwear, bikini and lingerie campaigns.

It is widely considered that England created the market for glamour modelling when The Sun established Page 3 in 1969, a section in their newspaper which now features topless models. In the beginning, the newspaper featured sexually suggestive images of Penthouse and Playboy models. It was not until 1970 that models appeared topless. In the 1980's, The Sun's competitors followed suit and produced their own Page 3 sections. It was during this time that glamour models first came to prominence with the likes of Samantha Fox. As a result, the United Kingdom has a very large glamour market and has numerous glamour modelling agencies to this day.

It was not until the 1990's that modern glamour modelling was established. During this time, the fashion industry was promoting models with waif bodies and androgynous looking women, which left a void. Several fashion models, who were deemed too commercial, and too curvaceous, were frustrated with industry standards, and took a different approach. Models such as Victoria Silvstedt left the fashion world and began modelling for men's magazines. In the previous decades, posing nude for Playboy resulted in models losing their agencies and endorsements. Playboy was a stepping stone which catapulted the careers of Victoria Silvstedt, Pamela Anderson, and Anna Nicole Smith. Pamela Anderson became so popular from her Playboy spreads that she was able to land roles on Home Improvement and Baywatch.

In the mid-1990's, a series of men's magazines were established such as Maxim, FHM, and Stuff. At the same time, magazines including Sweden's Slitz re-branded themselves as men's magazines. Pre-internet, these magazines were popular among men in their late teens and early twenties because they were considered to be more tasteful than their predecessors. With the glamour market growing, fashion moved away from the waifs and onto Brazilian bombshells. The glamour market, which consisted mostly of commercial fashion models and commercial print models, became its own genre due to its popularity. Even in a large market like the United Kingdom, however, glamour models are not usually signed exclusively to one agency as they can not rely financially on one agency to provide them with enough work. It was, and still is, a common practice for glamour models to partake in kiss-and-tell interviews about their dalliances with famous men. The notoriety of their alleged bed-hopping often propels their popularity and they are often promoted by their current or former fling. With Page 3 models becoming fixtures in the British tabloids, glamour models such as Jordan, now known as Katie Price, became household names. By 2004, Page 3 regulars earned anywhere from £30,000 to 40,000, where the average salary of a non-Page 3 model, as of 2011, was between £10,000 and 20,000. In the early 2000's, glamour models, and aspiring glamour models, appeared on reality television shows such as Big Brother to gain fame. Several Big Brother alumni parlayed their fifteen minutes of fame into successful glamour modelling careers. However, the glamour market became saturated by the mid-2000's, and numerous men's magazines including Arena, Stuff and FHM in the United States went under. During this time, there was a growing trend of glamour models, including Kellie Acreman and Lauren Pope, becoming DJs to supplement their income. In a 2012 interview, Keeley Hazell said that going topless is not the best way to achieve success and that "[she] was lucky to be in that 1% of people that get that, and become really successful."

Alternative models

An alternative model is any model who does not fit into the conventional model types and may include punk, goth, fetish, and tattooed models or models with distinctive attributes. This type of modeling is usually a cross between glamour modeling and art modeling. Publishers such as Goliath Books in Germany introduced alternative models and punk photography to larger audiences. Billi Gordon, then known as Wilbert Anthony Gordon, was the top greeting card model in the world and inspired a cottage industry including greeting cards, T-shirts, fans, stationery, gift bags, etc.

Parts models

Some models are employed for their body parts. For example, hand models may be used to promote products held in the hand and nail-related products. (e.g. rings, other jewelry or nail polish). They are frequently part of television commercials. Many parts models have exceptionally attractive body parts, but there is also demand for unattractive or unusual looking body parts for particular campaigns.

Hands are the most in-demand body parts. Feet models are also in high demand, particularly those who fit sample size shoes. Models are also successful modelling other specific parts including abs, arms, back, bust or chest, legs, and lips. Some petite models (females who are under 5 ft 6 in (1.68 m) and do not qualify as fashion models) have found success in women's body part modelling.

Parts model divisions can be found at agencies worldwide. Several agencies solely represent parts models, including Hired Hands in London, Body Parts Models in Los Angeles, Carmen Hand Model Management in New York and Parts Models in New York. Parts Models is the largest parts agency, representing over 300 parts models.

Fitness models

Fitness modelling focuses on displaying a healthy, toned physique. Fitness models usually have defined muscle groups. The model's body weight is heavier due to muscle weighing more than fat; however, they have a lower body fat percentage because the muscles are toned and sculpted. Fitness models are often used in magazine advertising. Sometimes they are certified personal fitness trainers. However, other fitness models are also athletes and compete as professionals in fitness and figure competitions. There are several agencies in large markets such as New York, London, Germany that have fitness modelling agencies. While there is a large market for these models, most of these agencies are a secondary agency promoting models who typically earn their primary income as commercial models. Plus there are also magazines that gear towards specifically fitness modeling or getting fit and in shape. Fitness Models showcase their fitter side of their bodies on the covers gearing towards specific competitions in fitness and figure competitions.

Gravure idols

A gravure idol, often abbreviated to gradol, is a Japanese female model who primarily models on magazines, especially men's magazines, photobooks or DVDs.

"Gravure" (グラビア) is a Wasei-eigo term derived from "rotogravure", which is a type of intaglio printing process that was once a staple of newspaper photo features. The rotogravure process is still used for commercial printing of magazines, postcards, and cardboard product packaging.

Gravure idols appear in a wide range of photography styles and genres. Their photos are largely aimed at male audiences with poses or activities intended to be provocative or suggestive, generally accentuated by an air of playfulness and innocence rather than aggressive sexuality. Although gravure models may sometimes wear clothing that exposes most of their body, they seldom appear fully nude. Gravure models may be as young as pre-teen age up to early thirties. In addition to appearing in mainstream magazines, gravure idols often release their own professional photobooks and DVDs for their fans. Many popular female idols in Japan launched their careers by starting out as gravure idols.

Commercial print and on-camera models

Commercial print models generally appear in print ads for non-fashion products, and in television commercials. Commercial print models can earn up to $250 an hour. Commercial print models are usually non-exclusive, and primarily work in one location.

There are several large fashion agencies that have commercial print divisions, including Ford Models in the United States.

Promotional models

A promotional model is a model hired to drive consumer demand for a product, service, brand, or concept by directly interacting with potential consumers. The vast majority of promotional models tend to be attractive in physical appearance. They serve to provide information about the product or service and make it appealing to consumers. While the length of interaction may be short, the promotional model delivers a live experience that reflects on the product or service he or she is representing. This form of marketing touches fewer consumers for the cost than traditional advertising media (such as print, radio, and television); however, the consumer's perception of a brand, product, service, or company is often more profoundly affected by a live person-to-person experience.

Marketing campaigns that make use of promotional models may take place in stores or shopping malls, at tradeshows, special promotional events, clubs, or even at outdoor public spaces. They are often held at high traffic locations to reach as many consumers as possible, or at venues at which a particular type of target consumer is expected to be present.

Spokesmodels

"Spokesmodel" is a term used for a model who is employed to be associated with a specific brand in advertisements. A spokesmodel may be a celebrity used only in advertisements (in contrast to a brand ambassador who is also expected to represent the company at various events), but more often the term refers to a model who is not a celebrity in their own right. A classic example of the spokesmodel are the models hired to be the Marlboro Man between 1954 and 1999.

Trade show models

Trade show models work a trade show floor-space or booth, and represent a company to attendees. Trade show models are typically not regular employees of the company, but are freelancers hired by the company renting the booth space. They are hired for several reasons: trade show models can make a company's booth more visibly distinguishable from the hundreds of other booths with which it competes for attendee attention. They are articulate and quickly learn and explain or disseminate information on the company and its product(s) and service(s). And they can assist a company in handling a large number of attendees which the company might otherwise not have enough employees to accommodate, possibly increasing the number of sales or leads resulting from participation in the show.

Atmosphere models

Atmosphere models are hired by the producers of themed events to enhance the atmosphere or ambience of their event. They are usually dressed in costumes exemplifying the theme of the event and are often placed strategically in various locations around the venue. It is common for event guests to have their picture taken with atmosphere models. For example, if someone is throwing a "Brazilian Day" celebration, they would hire models dressed in samba costumes and headdresses to stand or walk around the party.

Podium models

Podium models differ from runway models in that they don't walk down a runway, but rather just stand on an elevated platform during fashion presentation. They are kind of like live mannequins placed in various places throughout an event. Attendees can walk up to the models and inspect and even feel the clothing. Podium Modeling is a practical alternative way of presenting fashion when space is too limited to have a full runway fashion show.

Art models

Art models pose for any visual artist as part of the creative process. Art models are often paid professionals who provide a reference or inspiration for a work of art that includes the human figure. The most common types of art created using models are figure drawing, figure painting, sculpture and photography, but almost any medium may be used. Although commercial motives dominate over aesthetics in illustration, its artwork commonly employs models. Models are most frequently employed for art classes or by informal groups of experienced artists that gather to share the expense of a model.

Instagram models

Instagram models are a recent phenomenon due to the rise of social media. These models gain their popularity due to how many followers they have on social media. Some Instagram models gain high-profile modeling gigs and become household names. High-profile model, Jen Selter, kicked off the Instagram model craze. Recently, Anna Faith and Caitlin O'Connor among many others, have had great success as Instagram Models.

WHO IS A MODEL

A model (from Middle French modelle) is a person with a role either to promote, display, or advertise commercial products (notably fashion clothing) or to serve as a visual aide for people who are creating works of art or to pose for photography.

Modelling ("modeling" in American English) is considered to be different from other types of public performance, such as acting or dancing. Although the difference between modelling and performing is not always clear, appearing in a film or a play is not generally considered to be "modelling".

Types of modelling include: fashion, glamour, fitness, bikini, fine art, body-part, promotional and commercial print models. Models are featured in a variety of media formats including: books, magazines, films, newspapers, internet and TV. Fashion models are sometimes featured in films: (Looker), reality TV shows (America's Next Top Model, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency), and music videos: ("Freedom! '90", "Wicked Game", "Daughters", and "Blurred Lines").

Celebrities, including actors, singers, sports personalities and reality TV stars, frequently take modelling contracts in addition to their regular work.

HISTORY OF MODELING

Early years

Modelling as a profession was first established in 1853 by Charles Frederick Worth, the "father of haute couture", when he asked his wife, Marie Vernet Worth, to model the clothes he designed. The term "house model" was coined to describe this type of work. Eventually, this became common practice for Parisian fashion houses. There were no standard physical measurement requirements for a model, and most designers would use women of varying sizes to demonstrate variety in their designs.

With the development of fashion photography, the modelling profession expanded to photo modelling. Models remained fairly anonymous, and relatively poorly paid, until the late 1950's. One of the first well-known models was Lisa Fonssagrives, who was very popular in the 1930's. Fonssagrives appeared on over 200 Vogue covers, and her name recognition led to the importance of Vogue in shaping the careers of fashion models. In 1946, Ford Models was established by Eileen and Gerard Ford in New York; it is one of the oldest model agencies in the world. One of the most popular models during the 1940's was Jinx Falkenburg who was paid $25 per hour, a large sum at the time. During the 1940's and 1950's, Wilhelmina Cooper, Jean Patchett, Dovima, Dorian Leigh, Suzy Parker, Evelyn Tripp, Carmen Dell'Orefice, and Lisa Fonssagrives dominated fashion. Dorothea Church was among the first black models in the industry to gain notoriety in Paris. However, these models were unknown outside the fashion community. Compared to today's models, the models of the 1950's were more voluptuous. Wilhelmina Cooper's measurements were 38"-24"-36" whereas Chanel Iman's measurements are 32"-23"-33".

The 1960s and the beginning of the industry

In the 1960's, the modelling world began to establish modelling agencies. Throughout Europe, secretarial services acted as models' agents charging them weekly rates for their messages and bookings. For the most part, models were responsible for their own billing. In Germany, agents were not allowed to work for a percentage of a person's earnings, so referred to themselves as secretaries. With the exception of a few models travelling to Paris or New York, travelling was relatively unheard of for a model. Most models only worked in one market due to different labor laws governing modelling in various countries. In the 1960's, Italy had many fashion houses and fashion magazines but was in dire need of models. Italian agencies would often coerce models to return to Italy without work visas by withholding their pay. They would also pay their models in cash, which models would have to hide from customs agents. It was not uncommon for models staying in hotels such as La Louisiana in Paris or the Arena in Milan to have their hotel rooms raided by the police looking for their work visas. It was rumored that competing agencies were behind the raids. This led many agencies to form worldwide chains; for example, the Marilyn Agency has branches in Paris and New York.

By the late 1960's, London was considered the best market in Europe due to its more organised and innovative approach to modelling. It was during this period that models began to become household names. Models like: Jean Shrimpton, Joanna Lumley, Tania Mallet, Celia Hammond, Twiggy, Penelope Tree, and Pauline Stone dominated the London fashion scene and were well paid, unlike their predecessors. Twiggy became The Face of '66 at the age of 16. At this time, model agencies were not as restrictive about the models they represented, although it was uncommon for them to sign shorter models. Twiggy, who stood at 5 feet 6 inches (168 cm) with a 32" bust and had a boy's haircut, is credited with changing model ideals. At that time, she earned £80 an hour, while the average wage was £15 a week.

In 1967, seven of the top model agents in London formed the Association of London Model Agents. The formation of this association helped legitimize modelling and changed the fashion industry. Even with a more professional attitude towards modelling, models were still expected to have their hair and makeup done before they arrived at a shoot. Meanwhile, agencies took responsibility for a model's promotional materials and branding. That same year, former top fashion model Wilhelmina Cooper opened up her own fashion agency with her husband called Wilhelmina Models. By 1968, FM Agency and Models 1 were established and represented models in a similar way that agencies do today. By the late 1960's, models were treated better and were making better wages. One of the innovators, Ford Models, was the first agency to advance models money they were owed and would often allow teen models, who did not live locally, to reside in their house, a precursor to model housing.

The 1970's and 1980's

The innovations of the 1960's flowed into the 1970's fashion scene. As a result of model industry associations and standards, model agencies became more business minded, and more thought went into a model's promotional materials. By this time, agencies were starting to pay for a model's publicity. In the early 1970's, Scandinavia had many tall, leggy, blonde-haired, blue-eyed models and not enough clients. It was during this time that Ford Models pioneered scouting. They would spend time working with agencies holding modelling contests. This was the precursor to the Ford Models Supermodel of the World competition which was established in 1980. Ford also focused their attentions on Brazil which had a wide array of seemingly "exotic" models, which eventually led to establishment of Ford Models Brazil. It was also during this time that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue debuted. The magazine set a trend by photographing "bigger and healthier" California models, and printing their names by their photos, thus turning many of them into household names and establishing the issue as a hallmark of supermodel status.

The 1970's marked numerous milestones in fashion. Beverly Johnson was the first African American to appear on the cover of U.S. Vogue in 1974. Models, including Grace Jones, Donyale Luna, Minah Bird, Naomi Sims, and Toukie Smith were some of the top black fashion models who paved the way for black women in fashion. In 1975, Margaux Hemingway landed a then-unprecedented million-dollar contract as the face of Fabergé's Babe perfume and the same year appeared on the cover of Time magazine, labelled one of the "New Beauties," giving further name recognition to fashion models.

Many of the world's most prominent modelling agencies were established in the 1970's and early 1980's. These agencies created the standard by which agencies now run. In 1974, Nevs Models was established in London with only a men's board, the first of its kind. Elite Models was founded in Paris in 1975 as well as Friday's Models in Japan. The next year Cal-Carries was established in Singapore, the first of a chain of agencies in Asia. In 1977, Select Model Management opened its doors as well as Why Not Models in Milan. By the 1980's, agencies such as Premier Model Management, Storm Models, Mikas, Marilyn, and Metropolitan Models had been established.

By the 1980's, most models were able to make modelling a full-time career. It was common for models to travel abroad and work throughout Europe. As modelling became global, numerous agencies began to think globally. In 1980, Ford Models, the innovator of scouting, introduced the Ford Models Supermodel of the World contest. That same year, John Casablancas opened Elite Models in New York. In 1981, cosmetics companies began contracting top models to lucrative endorsement deals. By 1983, Elite developed its own contest titled the Elite Model Look competition. In New York during the 1980's there were so-called "model wars" in which the Ford and Elite agencies fought over models and campaigns. Models were jumping back and forth between agencies such Elite, Wilhelmina, and Ford. In New York, the late 1980's trend was the boyish look in which models had short cropped hair and looked androgynous. In Europe, the trend was the exact opposite. During this time, a lot of American models who were considered more feminine looking moved abroad. By the mid-1980's, big hair was made popular by some musical groups, and the boyish look was out. The curvaceous models who had been popular in the 1950's and early 1970's were in style again. Models like Patti Hansen earned $200 an hour for print and $2,000 for television plus residuals. It was estimated that Hansen earned about $300,000 a year during the 1980's.

The 1990's to present

The early 1990's were dominated by the high fashion models of the late 1980's. In 1990, Linda Evangelista famously said to Vogue, "we don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day". Evangelista and her contemporaries, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz and Stephanie Seymour, became arguably the most recognizable models in the world, earning the moniker of "supermodel", and were boosted to global recognition and new heights of wealth for the industry. In 1991, Turlington signed a contract with Maybelline that paid her $800,000 for twelve days' work each year.

By the mid‑1990's, the new "heroin chic" movement became popular amongst New York and London editorial clients. While the heroin chic movement was inspired by model Jaime King, who suffered from a heroin addiction, it was Kate Moss who became its poster child through her ads for Calvin Klein. In spite of the heroin chic movement, model Claudia Schiffer earned $12 million. With the popularity of lingerie retailer Victoria's Secret, and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, there was a need for healthier-looking supermodels such as Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum to meet commercial modelling demand. The mid‑1990's also saw many Asian countries establishing modelling agencies.

By the late 1990's, the heroin chic era had run its course. Teen-inspired clothing infiltrated mainstream fashion, teen pop music was on the rise, and artists such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera popularized pleather and bare midriffs. As fashion changed to a more youthful demographic, the models who rose to fame had to be sexier for the digital age. Following Gisele Bundchen's breakthrough, a wave of Brazilian models including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Ana Beatriz Barros rose to fame on runways and became popular in commercial modelling throughout the 2000's. Some attribute this to decisions by magazines to replace models with celebrities their covers.

In the late 2000's, the Brazilians fell out of favor on the runways. Editorial clients were favoring models with a china-doll or alien look to them, such as Gemma Ward and Lily Cole. During the 2000's, Ford Models and NEXT Model Management were engaged in a legal battle, with each agency alleging that the other was stealing its models.

However, the biggest controversy of the 2000's was the health of high-fashion models participating in fashion week. While the health of models had been a concern since the 1970's, there were several high-profile news stories surrounding the deaths of young fashion models due to eating disorders and drug abuse. The British Fashion Council subsequently asked designers to sign a contract stating they would not use models under the age of sixteen. On March 3, 2012, Vogue banned models under the age of sixteen as well as models who appeared to have an eating disorder. Similarly, other countries placed bans on unhealthy, and underage models, including Spain, Italy, and Israel, which all enacted a minimum body mass index (BMI) requirement.

The often thin shape of many fashion models has been criticized for warping girls' body image and encouraging eating disorders. Organizers of a fashion show in Madrid in September 2006 turned away models who were judged to be underweight by medical personnel who were on hand. In February 2007, six months after her sister, Luisel Ramos, also a model, died, Uruguayan model Eliana Ramos became the third fashion model to die of malnutrition in six months. The second victim was Ana Carolina Reston. Luisel Ramos died of heart failure caused by anorexia nervosa just after stepping off the catwalk. In 2015, France passed a law requiring models to be declared healthy by a doctor in order to participate in fashion shows. The law also requires re-touched images to be marked as such in magazines.

In 2013, New York toughened its child labor law protections for models under the age of eighteen by passing New York Senate Bill No. 5486, which gives underage models the same labor protections afforded to child actors. Key new protections included the following: underage models are not to work before 5:00 pm or after 10:00 pm on school nights, nor were they to work later than 12:30 am on non-school nights; the models may not return to work less than twelve hours after they leave; a pediatric nurse must be on site; models under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult chaperone; parents or guardians of underage models must create a trust fund account into which employers will transfer a minimum of 15% of the child model's gross earnings; and employers must set aside time and a dedicated space for educational instruction.

TYPES OF MODELING

Runway modelling

Runway models showcase clothes from fashion designers, fashion media, and consumers. They are also called "live models" and are self-employed. They are wanted to be over the height of 5'8" for men and 5'6" for women. Runway models work in different locations, constantly travelling between those cities where fashion is well known—London, Milan, New York City, and Paris. Second-tier international fashion center cities include: Rome, Florence, Venice, Brescia, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Moscow. Cities where catalog work comprises the bulk of fashion packaging, merchandising and marketing work are: Miami, San Francisco, Sydney, Chicago, Toronto, Mexico City, Tokyo, Hamburg, London, and Beijing.

The criteria for runway models include certain height and weight requirements. During runway shows, models have to constantly change clothes and makeup. Models walk, turn, and stand in order to demonstrate a garment's key features. Models also go to interviews (called "go and sees") to present their portfolios. The more experience a model has, the more likely she/he is to be hired for a fashion show. A runway model can also work in other areas, such as department store fashion shows, and the most successful models sometimes create their own product lines or go into acting.

The British Association of Model Agents (AMA) says that female models should be around 34"-24"-34" and between 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) and 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) tall. The average model is very slender. Those who do not meet the size requirement may try to become a plus-size model. According to the New York Better Business Career Services website, the preferred dimensions for a male model are a height of 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) to 6 ft 2 in (189 cm), a waist of 29–32 in (73.66–81.28 cm) and a chest measurement of 39–40 in (99.06–101.60 cm). Male runway models are notably skinny and well toned.

Male and female models must also possess clear skin, healthy hair, and attractive facial features. Stringent weight and body proportion guidelines form the selection criteria by which established, and would‑be, models are judged for their placement suitability, on an ongoing basis. There can be some variation regionally, and by market tier, subject to current prevailing trends at any point, in any era, by agents, agencies and end-clients.

Formerly, the required measurements for models were 35"-23.5"-35" in (90-60-90 cm), the alleged measurements of Marilyn Monroe. Today's fashion models tend to have measurements closer to the AMA-recommended shape, but some - such as Afghan model Zohre Esmaeli - still have 35"-23.5"-35" measurements. Although in some fashion centers, a size 00 is more ideal than a size 0.

Plus-size models

Plus-size models are models who generally have larger measurements than editorial fashion models. The primary use of plus-size models is to appear in advertising and runway shows for plus-size labels. Plus-size models are also engaged in work that is not strictly related to selling large-sized clothing, e.g., stock photography and advertising photography for cosmetics, household and pharmaceutical products and sunglasses, footwear and watches. Therefore, plus-size models do not exclusively wear garments marketed as plus-size clothing. This is especially true when participating in fashion editorials for mainstream fashion magazines. Some plus-size models have appeared in runway shows and campaigns for mainstream retailers and designers such as Gucci, Guess, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Levi's and Versace Jeans.

Fit models

A fit model works as a sort of live mannequin to give designers and pattern makers feedback on the fit, feel, movement, and drape of a garment to be produced in a given size.

Glamour models

Glamour modelling focuses on sexuality and thus general requirements are often unclear, being dependent more on each individual case. Glamour models can be any size or shape. There is no industry standard for glamour modelling and it varies greatly by country. For the most part, glamour models are limited to modelling in calendars, men's magazines, such as Playboy, bikini modelling, lingerie modelling, fetish modelling, music videos, and extra work in films. However, some extremely popular glamour models transition into commercial print modelling, appearing in swimwear, bikini and lingerie campaigns.

It is widely considered that England created the market for glamour modelling when The Sun established Page 3 in 1969, a section in their newspaper which now features topless models. In the beginning, the newspaper featured sexually suggestive images of Penthouse and Playboy models. It was not until 1970 that models appeared topless. In the 1980's, The Sun's competitors followed suit and produced their own Page 3 sections. It was during this time that glamour models first came to prominence with the likes of Samantha Fox. As a result, the United Kingdom has a very large glamour market and has numerous glamour modelling agencies to this day.

It was not until the 1990's that modern glamour modelling was established. During this time, the fashion industry was promoting models with waif bodies and androgynous looking women, which left a void. Several fashion models, who were deemed too commercial, and too curvaceous, were frustrated with industry standards, and took a different approach. Models such as Victoria Silvstedt left the fashion world and began modelling for men's magazines. In the previous decades, posing nude for Playboy resulted in models losing their agencies and endorsements. Playboy was a stepping stone which catapulted the careers of Victoria Silvstedt, Pamela Anderson, and Anna Nicole Smith. Pamela Anderson became so popular from her Playboy spreads that she was able to land roles on Home Improvement and Baywatch.

In the mid-1990's, a series of men's magazines were established such as Maxim, FHM, and Stuff. At the same time, magazines including Sweden's Slitz re-branded themselves as men's magazines. Pre-internet, these magazines were popular among men in their late teens and early twenties because they were considered to be more tasteful than their predecessors. With the glamour market growing, fashion moved away from the waifs and onto Brazilian bombshells. The glamour market, which consisted mostly of commercial fashion models and commercial print models, became its own genre due to its popularity. Even in a large market like the United Kingdom, however, glamour models are not usually signed exclusively to one agency as they can not rely financially on one agency to provide them with enough work. It was, and still is, a common practice for glamour models to partake in kiss-and-tell interviews about their dalliances with famous men. The notoriety of their alleged bed-hopping often propels their popularity and they are often promoted by their current or former fling. With Page 3 models becoming fixtures in the British tabloids, glamour models such as Jordan, now known as Katie Price, became household names. By 2004, Page 3 regulars earned anywhere from £30,000 to 40,000, where the average salary of a non-Page 3 model, as of 2011, was between £10,000 and 20,000. In the early 2000's, glamour models, and aspiring glamour models, appeared on reality television shows such as Big Brother to gain fame. Several Big Brother alumni parlayed their fifteen minutes of fame into successful glamour modelling careers. However, the glamour market became saturated by the mid-2000's, and numerous men's magazines including Arena, Stuff and FHM in the United States went under. During this time, there was a growing trend of glamour models, including Kellie Acreman and Lauren Pope, becoming DJs to supplement their income. In a 2012 interview, Keeley Hazell said that going topless is not the best way to achieve success and that "[she] was lucky to be in that 1% of people that get that, and become really successful."

Alternative models

An alternative model is any model who does not fit into the conventional model types and may include punk, goth, fetish, and tattooed models or models with distinctive attributes. This type of modeling is usually a cross between glamour modeling and art modeling. Publishers such as Goliath Books in Germany introduced alternative models and punk photography to larger audiences. Billi Gordon, then known as Wilbert Anthony Gordon, was the top greeting card model in the world and inspired a cottage industry including greeting cards, T-shirts, fans, stationery, gift bags, etc.

Parts models

Some models are employed for their body parts. For example, hand models may be used to promote products held in the hand and nail-related products. (e.g. rings, other jewelry or nail polish). They are frequently part of television commercials. Many parts models have exceptionally attractive body parts, but there is also demand for unattractive or unusual looking body parts for particular campaigns.

Hands are the most in-demand body parts. Feet models are also in high demand, particularly those who fit sample size shoes. Models are also successful modelling other specific parts including abs, arms, back, bust or chest, legs, and lips. Some petite models (females who are under 5 ft 6 in (1.68 m) and do not qualify as fashion models) have found success in women's body part modelling.

Parts model divisions can be found at agencies worldwide. Several agencies solely represent parts models, including Hired Hands in London, Body Parts Models in Los Angeles, Carmen Hand Model Management in New York and Parts Models in New York. Parts Models is the largest parts agency, representing over 300 parts models.

Fitness models

Fitness modelling focuses on displaying a healthy, toned physique. Fitness models usually have defined muscle groups. The model's body weight is heavier due to muscle weighing more than fat; however, they have a lower body fat percentage because the muscles are toned and sculpted. Fitness models are often used in magazine advertising. Sometimes they are certified personal fitness trainers. However, other fitness models are also athletes and compete as professionals in fitness and figure competitions. There are several agencies in large markets such as New York, London, Germany that have fitness modelling agencies. While there is a large market for these models, most of these agencies are a secondary agency promoting models who typically earn their primary income as commercial models. Plus there are also magazines that gear towards specifically fitness modeling or getting fit and in shape. Fitness Models showcase their fitter side of their bodies on the covers gearing towards specific competitions in fitness and figure competitions.

Gravure idols

A gravure idol, often abbreviated to gradol, is a Japanese female model who primarily models on magazines, especially men's magazines, photobooks or DVDs.

"Gravure" (グラビア) is a Wasei-eigo term derived from "rotogravure", which is a type of intaglio printing process that was once a staple of newspaper photo features. The rotogravure process is still used for commercial printing of magazines, postcards, and cardboard product packaging.

Gravure idols appear in a wide range of photography styles and genres. Their photos are largely aimed at male audiences with poses or activities intended to be provocative or suggestive, generally accentuated by an air of playfulness and innocence rather than aggressive sexuality. Although gravure models may sometimes wear clothing that exposes most of their body, they seldom appear fully nude. Gravure models may be as young as pre-teen age up to early thirties. In addition to appearing in mainstream magazines, gravure idols often release their own professional photobooks and DVDs for their fans. Many popular female idols in Japan launched their careers by starting out as gravure idols.

Commercial print and on-camera models

Commercial print models generally appear in print ads for non-fashion products, and in television commercials. Commercial print models can earn up to $250 an hour. Commercial print models are usually non-exclusive, and primarily work in one location.

There are several large fashion agencies that have commercial print divisions, including Ford Models in the United States.

Promotional models

A promotional model is a model hired to drive consumer demand for a product, service, brand, or concept by directly interacting with potential consumers. The vast majority of promotional models tend to be attractive in physical appearance. They serve to provide information about the product or service and make it appealing to consumers. While the length of interaction may be short, the promotional model delivers a live experience that reflects on the product or service he or she is representing. This form of marketing touches fewer consumers for the cost than traditional advertising media (such as print, radio, and television); however, the consumer's perception of a brand, product, service, or company is often more profoundly affected by a live person-to-person experience.

Marketing campaigns that make use of promotional models may take place in stores or shopping malls, at tradeshows, special promotional events, clubs, or even at outdoor public spaces. They are often held at high traffic locations to reach as many consumers as possible, or at venues at which a particular type of target consumer is expected to be present.

Spokesmodels

"Spokesmodel" is a term used for a model who is employed to be associated with a specific brand in advertisements. A spokesmodel may be a celebrity used only in advertisements (in contrast to a brand ambassador who is also expected to represent the company at various events), but more often the term refers to a model who is not a celebrity in their own right. A classic example of the spokesmodel are the models hired to be the Marlboro Man between 1954 and 1999.

Trade show models

Trade show models work a trade show floor-space or booth, and represent a company to attendees. Trade show models are typically not regular employees of the company, but are freelancers hired by the company renting the booth space. They are hired for several reasons: trade show models can make a company's booth more visibly distinguishable from the hundreds of other booths with which it competes for attendee attention. They are articulate and quickly learn and explain or disseminate information on the company and its product(s) and service(s). And they can assist a company in handling a large number of attendees which the company might otherwise not have enough employees to accommodate, possibly increasing the number of sales or leads resulting from participation in the show.

Atmosphere models

Atmosphere models are hired by the producers of themed events to enhance the atmosphere or ambience of their event. They are usually dressed in costumes exemplifying the theme of the event and are often placed strategically in various locations around the venue. It is common for event guests to have their picture taken with atmosphere models. For example, if someone is throwing a "Brazilian Day" celebration, they would hire models dressed in samba costumes and headdresses to stand or walk around the party.

Podium models

Podium models differ from runway models in that they don't walk down a runway, but rather just stand on an elevated platform during fashion presentation. They are kind of like live mannequins placed in various places throughout an event. Attendees can walk up to the models and inspect and even feel the clothing. Podium Modeling is a practical alternative way of presenting fashion when space is too limited to have a full runway fashion show.

Art models

Art models pose for any visual artist as part of the creative process. Art models are often paid professionals who provide a reference or inspiration for a work of art that includes the human figure. The most common types of art created using models are figure drawing, figure painting, sculpture and photography, but almost any medium may be used. Although commercial motives dominate over aesthetics in illustration, its artwork commonly employs models. Models are most frequently employed for art classes or by informal groups of experienced artists that gather to share the expense of a model.

Instagram models

Instagram models are a recent phenomenon due to the rise of social media. These models gain their popularity due to how many followers they have on social media. Some Instagram models gain high-profile modeling gigs and become household names. High-profile model, Jen Selter, kicked off the Instagram model craze. Recently, Anna Faith and Caitlin O'Connor among many others, have had great success as Instagram Models.

WHO IS A MODEL

A model (from Middle French modelle) is a person with a role either to promote, display, or advertise commercial products (notably fashion clothing) or to serve as a visual aide for people who are creating works of art or to pose for photography.

Modelling ("modeling" in American English) is considered to be different from other types of public performance, such as acting or dancing. Although the difference between modelling and performing is not always clear, appearing in a film or a play is not generally considered to be "modelling".

Types of modelling include: fashion, glamour, fitness, bikini, fine art, body-part, promotional and commercial print models. Models are featured in a variety of media formats including: books, magazines, films, newspapers, internet and TV. Fashion models are sometimes featured in films: (Looker), reality TV shows (America's Next Top Model, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency), and music videos: ("Freedom! '90", "Wicked Game", "Daughters", and "Blurred Lines").

Celebrities, including actors, singers, sports personalities and reality TV stars, frequently take modelling contracts in addition to their regular work.

HISTORY OF MODELING

Early years

Modelling as a profession was first established in 1853 by Charles Frederick Worth, the "father of haute couture", when he asked his wife, Marie Vernet Worth, to model the clothes he designed. The term "house model" was coined to describe this type of work. Eventually, this became common practice for Parisian fashion houses. There were no standard physical measurement requirements for a model, and most designers would use women of varying sizes to demonstrate variety in their designs.

With the development of fashion photography, the modelling profession expanded to photo modelling. Models remained fairly anonymous, and relatively poorly paid, until the late 1950's. One of the first well-known models was Lisa Fonssagrives, who was very popular in the 1930's. Fonssagrives appeared on over 200 Vogue covers, and her name recognition led to the importance of Vogue in shaping the careers of fashion models. In 1946, Ford Models was established by Eileen and Gerard Ford in New York; it is one of the oldest model agencies in the world. One of the most popular models during the 1940's was Jinx Falkenburg who was paid $25 per hour, a large sum at the time. During the 1940's and 1950's, Wilhelmina Cooper, Jean Patchett, Dovima, Dorian Leigh, Suzy Parker, Evelyn Tripp, Carmen Dell'Orefice, and Lisa Fonssagrives dominated fashion. Dorothea Church was among the first black models in the industry to gain notoriety in Paris. However, these models were unknown outside the fashion community. Compared to today's models, the models of the 1950's were more voluptuous. Wilhelmina Cooper's measurements were 38"-24"-36" whereas Chanel Iman's measurements are 32"-23"-33".

The 1960s and the beginning of the industry

In the 1960's, the modelling world began to establish modelling agencies. Throughout Europe, secretarial services acted as models' agents charging them weekly rates for their messages and bookings. For the most part, models were responsible for their own billing. In Germany, agents were not allowed to work for a percentage of a person's earnings, so referred to themselves as secretaries. With the exception of a few models travelling to Paris or New York, travelling was relatively unheard of for a model. Most models only worked in one market due to different labor laws governing modelling in various countries. In the 1960's, Italy had many fashion houses and fashion magazines but was in dire need of models. Italian agencies would often coerce models to return to Italy without work visas by withholding their pay. They would also pay their models in cash, which models would have to hide from customs agents. It was not uncommon for models staying in hotels such as La Louisiana in Paris or the Arena in Milan to have their hotel rooms raided by the police looking for their work visas. It was rumored that competing agencies were behind the raids. This led many agencies to form worldwide chains; for example, the Marilyn Agency has branches in Paris and New York.

By the late 1960's, London was considered the best market in Europe due to its more organised and innovative approach to modelling. It was during this period that models began to become household names. Models like: Jean Shrimpton, Joanna Lumley, Tania Mallet, Celia Hammond, Twiggy, Penelope Tree, and Pauline Stone dominated the London fashion scene and were well paid, unlike their predecessors. Twiggy became The Face of '66 at the age of 16. At this time, model agencies were not as restrictive about the models they represented, although it was uncommon for them to sign shorter models. Twiggy, who stood at 5 feet 6 inches (168 cm) with a 32" bust and had a boy's haircut, is credited with changing model ideals. At that time, she earned £80 an hour, while the average wage was £15 a week.

In 1967, seven of the top model agents in London formed the Association of London Model Agents. The formation of this association helped legitimize modelling and changed the fashion industry. Even with a more professional attitude towards modelling, models were still expected to have their hair and makeup done before they arrived at a shoot. Meanwhile, agencies took responsibility for a model's promotional materials and branding. That same year, former top fashion model Wilhelmina Cooper opened up her own fashion agency with her husband called Wilhelmina Models. By 1968, FM Agency and Models 1 were established and represented models in a similar way that agencies do today. By the late 1960's, models were treated better and were making better wages. One of the innovators, Ford Models, was the first agency to advance models money they were owed and would often allow teen models, who did not live locally, to reside in their house, a precursor to model housing.

The 1970's and 1980's

The innovations of the 1960's flowed into the 1970's fashion scene. As a result of model industry associations and standards, model agencies became more business minded, and more thought went into a model's promotional materials. By this time, agencies were starting to pay for a model's publicity. In the early 1970's, Scandinavia had many tall, leggy, blonde-haired, blue-eyed models and not enough clients. It was during this time that Ford Models pioneered scouting. They would spend time working with agencies holding modelling contests. This was the precursor to the Ford Models Supermodel of the World competition which was established in 1980. Ford also focused their attentions on Brazil which had a wide array of seemingly "exotic" models, which eventually led to establishment of Ford Models Brazil. It was also during this time that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue debuted. The magazine set a trend by photographing "bigger and healthier" California models, and printing their names by their photos, thus turning many of them into household names and establishing the issue as a hallmark of supermodel status.

The 1970's marked numerous milestones in fashion. Beverly Johnson was the first African American to appear on the cover of U.S. Vogue in 1974. Models, including Grace Jones, Donyale Luna, Minah Bird, Naomi Sims, and Toukie Smith were some of the top black fashion models who paved the way for black women in fashion. In 1975, Margaux Hemingway landed a then-unprecedented million-dollar contract as the face of Fabergé's Babe perfume and the same year appeared on the cover of Time magazine, labelled one of the "New Beauties," giving further name recognition to fashion models.

Many of the world's most prominent modelling agencies were established in the 1970's and early 1980's. These agencies created the standard by which agencies now run. In 1974, Nevs Models was established in London with only a men's board, the first of its kind. Elite Models was founded in Paris in 1975 as well as Friday's Models in Japan. The next year Cal-Carries was established in Singapore, the first of a chain of agencies in Asia. In 1977, Select Model Management opened its doors as well as Why Not Models in Milan. By the 1980's, agencies such as Premier Model Management, Storm Models, Mikas, Marilyn, and Metropolitan Models had been established.

By the 1980's, most models were able to make modelling a full-time career. It was common for models to travel abroad and work throughout Europe. As modelling became global, numerous agencies began to think globally. In 1980, Ford Models, the innovator of scouting, introduced the Ford Models Supermodel of the World contest. That same year, John Casablancas opened Elite Models in New York. In 1981, cosmetics companies began contracting top models to lucrative endorsement deals. By 1983, Elite developed its own contest titled the Elite Model Look competition. In New York during the 1980's there were so-called "model wars" in which the Ford and Elite agencies fought over models and campaigns. Models were jumping back and forth between agencies such Elite, Wilhelmina, and Ford. In New York, the late 1980's trend was the boyish look in which models had short cropped hair and looked androgynous. In Europe, the trend was the exact opposite. During this time, a lot of American models who were considered more feminine looking moved abroad. By the mid-1980's, big hair was made popular by some musical groups, and the boyish look was out. The curvaceous models who had been popular in the 1950's and early 1970's were in style again. Models like Patti Hansen earned $200 an hour for print and $2,000 for television plus residuals. It was estimated that Hansen earned about $300,000 a year during the 1980's.

The 1990's to present

The early 1990's were dominated by the high fashion models of the late 1980's. In 1990, Linda Evangelista famously said to Vogue, "we don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day". Evangelista and her contemporaries, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz and Stephanie Seymour, became arguably the most recognizable models in the world, earning the moniker of "supermodel", and were boosted to global recognition and new heights of wealth for the industry. In 1991, Turlington signed a contract with Maybelline that paid her $800,000 for twelve days' work each year.

By the mid‑1990's, the new "heroin chic" movement became popular amongst New York and London editorial clients. While the heroin chic movement was inspired by model Jaime King, who suffered from a heroin addiction, it was Kate Moss who became its poster child through her ads for Calvin Klein. In spite of the heroin chic movement, model Claudia Schiffer earned $12 million. With the popularity of lingerie retailer Victoria's Secret, and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, there was a need for healthier-looking supermodels such as Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum to meet commercial modelling demand. The mid‑1990's also saw many Asian countries establishing modelling agencies.

By the late 1990's, the heroin chic era had run its course. Teen-inspired clothing infiltrated mainstream fashion, teen pop music was on the rise, and artists such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera popularized pleather and bare midriffs. As fashion changed to a more youthful demographic, the models who rose to fame had to be sexier for the digital age. Following Gisele Bundchen's breakthrough, a wave of Brazilian models including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Ana Beatriz Barros rose to fame on runways and became popular in commercial modelling throughout the 2000's. Some attribute this to decisions by magazines to replace models with celebrities their covers.

In the late 2000's, the Brazilians fell out of favor on the runways. Editorial clients were favoring models with a china-doll or alien look to them, such as Gemma Ward and Lily Cole. During the 2000's, Ford Models and NEXT Model Management were engaged in a legal battle, with each agency alleging that the other was stealing its models.

However, the biggest controversy of the 2000's was the health of high-fashion models participating in fashion week. While the health of models had been a concern since the 1970's, there were several high-profile news stories surrounding the deaths of young fashion models due to eating disorders and drug abuse. The British Fashion Council subsequently asked designers to sign a contract stating they would not use models under the age of sixteen. On March 3, 2012, Vogue banned models under the age of sixteen as well as models who appeared to have an eating disorder. Similarly, other countries placed bans on unhealthy, and underage models, including Spain, Italy, and Israel, which all enacted a minimum body mass index (BMI) requirement.

The often thin shape of many fashion models has been criticized for warping girls' body image and encouraging eating disorders. Organizers of a fashion show in Madrid in September 2006 turned away models who were judged to be underweight by medical personnel who were on hand. In February 2007, six months after her sister, Luisel Ramos, also a model, died, Uruguayan model Eliana Ramos became the third fashion model to die of malnutrition in six months. The second victim was Ana Carolina Reston. Luisel Ramos died of heart failure caused by anorexia nervosa just after stepping off the catwalk. In 2015, France passed a law requiring models to be declared healthy by a doctor in order to participate in fashion shows. The law also requires re-touched images to be marked as such in magazines.

In 2013, New York toughened its child labor law protections for models under the age of eighteen by passing New York Senate Bill No. 5486, which gives underage models the same labor protections afforded to child actors. Key new protections included the following: underage models are not to work before 5:00 pm or after 10:00 pm on school nights, nor were they to work later than 12:30 am on non-school nights; the models may not return to work less than twelve hours after they leave; a pediatric nurse must be on site; models under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult chaperone; parents or guardians of underage models must create a trust fund account into which employers will transfer a minimum of 15% of the child model's gross earnings; and employers must set aside time and a dedicated space for educational instruction.

TYPES OF MODELING

Runway modelling

Runway models showcase clothes from fashion designers, fashion media, and consumers. They are also called "live models" and are self-employed. They are wanted to be over the height of 5'8" for men and 5'6" for women. Runway models work in different locations, constantly travelling between those cities where fashion is well known—London, Milan, New York City, and Paris. Second-tier international fashion center cities include: Rome, Florence, Venice, Brescia, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Moscow. Cities where catalog work comprises the bulk of fashion packaging, merchandising and marketing work are: Miami, San Francisco, Sydney, Chicago, Toronto, Mexico City, Tokyo, Hamburg, London, and Beijing.

The criteria for runway models include certain height and weight requirements. During runway shows, models have to constantly change clothes and makeup. Models walk, turn, and stand in order to demonstrate a garment's key features. Models also go to interviews (called "go and sees") to present their portfolios. The more experience a model has, the more likely she/he is to be hired for a fashion show. A runway model can also work in other areas, such as department store fashion shows, and the most successful models sometimes create their own product lines or go into acting.

The British Association of Model Agents (AMA) says that female models should be around 34"-24"-34" and between 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) and 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) tall. The average model is very slender. Those who do not meet the size requirement may try to become a plus-size model. According to the New York Better Business Career Services website, the preferred dimensions for a male model are a height of 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) to 6 ft 2 in (189 cm), a waist of 29–32 in (73.66–81.28 cm) and a chest measurement of 39–40 in (99.06–101.60 cm). Male runway models are notably skinny and well toned.

Male and female models must also possess clear skin, healthy hair, and attractive facial features. Stringent weight and body proportion guidelines form the selection criteria by which established, and would‑be, models are judged for their placement suitability, on an ongoing basis. There can be some variation regionally, and by market tier, subject to current prevailing trends at any point, in any era, by agents, agencies and end-clients.

Formerly, the required measurements for models were 35"-23.5"-35" in (90-60-90 cm), the alleged measurements of Marilyn Monroe. Today's fashion models tend to have measurements closer to the AMA-recommended shape, but some - such as Afghan model Zohre Esmaeli - still have 35"-23.5"-35" measurements. Although in some fashion centers, a size 00 is more ideal than a size 0.

Plus-size models

Plus-size models are models who generally have larger measurements than editorial fashion models. The primary use of plus-size models is to appear in advertising and runway shows for plus-size labels. Plus-size models are also engaged in work that is not strictly related to selling large-sized clothing, e.g., stock photography and advertising photography for cosmetics, household and pharmaceutical products and sunglasses, footwear and watches. Therefore, plus-size models do not exclusively wear garments marketed as plus-size clothing. This is especially true when participating in fashion editorials for mainstream fashion magazines. Some plus-size models have appeared in runway shows and campaigns for mainstream retailers and designers such as Gucci, Guess, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Levi's and Versace Jeans.

Fit models

A fit model works as a sort of live mannequin to give designers and pattern makers feedback on the fit, feel, movement, and drape of a garment to be produced in a given size.

Glamour models

Glamour modelling focuses on sexuality and thus general requirements are often unclear, being dependent more on each individual case. Glamour models can be any size or shape. There is no industry standard for glamour modelling and it varies greatly by country. For the most part, glamour models are limited to modelling in calendars, men's magazines, such as Playboy, bikini modelling, lingerie modelling, fetish modelling, music videos, and extra work in films. However, some extremely popular glamour models transition into commercial print modelling, appearing in swimwear, bikini and lingerie campaigns.

It is widely considered that England created the market for glamour modelling when The Sun established Page 3 in 1969, a section in their newspaper which now features topless models. In the beginning, the newspaper featured sexually suggestive images of Penthouse and Playboy models. It was not until 1970 that models appeared topless. In the 1980's, The Sun's competitors followed suit and produced their own Page 3 sections. It was during this time that glamour models first came to prominence with the likes of Samantha Fox. As a result, the United Kingdom has a very large glamour market and has numerous glamour modelling agencies to this day.

It was not until the 1990's that modern glamour modelling was established. During this time, the fashion industry was promoting models with waif bodies and androgynous looking women, which left a void. Several fashion models, who were deemed too commercial, and too curvaceous, were frustrated with industry standards, and took a different approach. Models such as Victoria Silvstedt left the fashion world and began modelling for men's magazines. In the previous decades, posing nude for Playboy resulted in models losing their agencies and endorsements. Playboy was a stepping stone which catapulted the careers of Victoria Silvstedt, Pamela Anderson, and Anna Nicole Smith. Pamela Anderson became so popular from her Playboy spreads that she was able to land roles on Home Improvement and Baywatch.

In the mid-1990's, a series of men's magazines were established such as Maxim, FHM, and Stuff. At the same time, magazines including Sweden's Slitz re-branded themselves as men's magazines. Pre-internet, these magazines were popular among men in their late teens and early twenties because they were considered to be more tasteful than their predecessors. With the glamour market growing, fashion moved away from the waifs and onto Brazilian bombshells. The glamour market, which consisted mostly of commercial fashion models and commercial print models, became its own genre due to its popularity. Even in a large market like the United Kingdom, however, glamour models are not usually signed exclusively to one agency as they can not rely financially on one agency to provide them with enough work. It was, and still is, a common practice for glamour models to partake in kiss-and-tell interviews about their dalliances with famous men. The notoriety of their alleged bed-hopping often propels their popularity and they are often promoted by their current or former fling. With Page 3 models becoming fixtures in the British tabloids, glamour models such as Jordan, now known as Katie Price, became household names. By 2004, Page 3 regulars earned anywhere from £30,000 to 40,000, where the average salary of a non-Page 3 model, as of 2011, was between £10,000 and 20,000. In the early 2000's, glamour models, and aspiring glamour models, appeared on reality television shows such as Big Brother to gain fame. Several Big Brother alumni parlayed their fifteen minutes of fame into successful glamour modelling careers. However, the glamour market became saturated by the mid-2000's, and numerous men's magazines including Arena, Stuff and FHM in the United States went under. During this time, there was a growing trend of glamour models, including Kellie Acreman and Lauren Pope, becoming DJs to supplement their income. In a 2012 interview, Keeley Hazell said that going topless is not the best way to achieve success and that "[she] was lucky to be in that 1% of people that get that, and become really successful."

Alternative models

An alternative model is any model who does not fit into the conventional model types and may include punk, goth, fetish, and tattooed models or models with distinctive attributes. This type of modeling is usually a cross between glamour modeling and art modeling. Publishers such as Goliath Books in Germany introduced alternative models and punk photography to larger audiences. Billi Gordon, then known as Wilbert Anthony Gordon, was the top greeting card model in the world and inspired a cottage industry including greeting cards, T-shirts, fans, stationery, gift bags, etc.

Parts models

Some models are employed for their body parts. For example, hand models may be used to promote products held in the hand and nail-related products. (e.g. rings, other jewelry or nail polish). They are frequently part of television commercials. Many parts models have exceptionally attractive body parts, but there is also demand for unattractive or unusual looking body parts for particular campaigns.

Hands are the most in-demand body parts. Feet models are also in high demand, particularly those who fit sample size shoes. Models are also successful modelling other specific parts including abs, arms, back, bust or chest, legs, and lips. Some petite models (females who are under 5 ft 6 in (1.68 m) and do not qualify as fashion models) have found success in women's body part modelling.

Parts model divisions can be found at agencies worldwide. Several agencies solely represent parts models, including Hired Hands in London, Body Parts Models in Los Angeles, Carmen Hand Model Management in New York and Parts Models in New York. Parts Models is the largest parts agency, representing over 300 parts models.

Fitness models

Fitness modelling focuses on displaying a healthy, toned physique. Fitness models usually have defined muscle groups. The model's body weight is heavier due to muscle weighing more than fat; however, they have a lower body fat percentage because the muscles are toned and sculpted. Fitness models are often used in magazine advertising. Sometimes they are certified personal fitness trainers. However, other fitness models are also athletes and compete as professionals in fitness and figure competitions. There are several agencies in large markets such as New York, London, Germany that have fitness modelling agencies. While there is a large market for these models, most of these agencies are a secondary agency promoting models who typically earn their primary income as commercial models. Plus there are also magazines that gear towards specifically fitness modeling or getting fit and in shape. Fitness Models showcase their fitter side of their bodies on the covers gearing towards specific competitions in fitness and figure competitions.

Gravure idols

A gravure idol, often abbreviated to gradol, is a Japanese female model who primarily models on magazines, especially men's magazines, photobooks or DVDs.

"Gravure" (グラビア) is a Wasei-eigo term derived from "rotogravure", which is a type of intaglio printing process that was once a staple of newspaper photo features. The rotogravure process is still used for commercial printing of magazines, postcards, and cardboard product packaging.

Gravure idols appear in a wide range of photography styles and genres. Their photos are largely aimed at male audiences with poses or activities intended to be provocative or suggestive, generally accentuated by an air of playfulness and innocence rather than aggressive sexuality. Although gravure models may sometimes wear clothing that exposes most of their body, they seldom appear fully nude. Gravure models may be as young as pre-teen age up to early thirties. In addition to appearing in mainstream magazines, gravure idols often release their own professional photobooks and DVDs for their fans. Many popular female idols in Japan launched their careers by starting out as gravure idols.

Commercial print and on-camera models

Commercial print models generally appear in print ads for non-fashion products, and in television commercials. Commercial print models can earn up to $250 an hour. Commercial print models are usually non-exclusive, and primarily work in one location.

There are several large fashion agencies that have commercial print divisions, including Ford Models in the United States.

Promotional models

A promotional model is a model hired to drive consumer demand for a product, service, brand, or concept by directly interacting with potential consumers. The vast majority of promotional models tend to be attractive in physical appearance. They serve to provide information about the product or service and make it appealing to consumers. While the length of interaction may be short, the promotional model delivers a live experience that reflects on the product or service he or she is representing. This form of marketing touches fewer consumers for the cost than traditional advertising media (such as print, radio, and television); however, the consumer's perception of a brand, product, service, or company is often more profoundly affected by a live person-to-person experience.

Marketing campaigns that make use of promotional models may take place in stores or shopping malls, at tradeshows, special promotional events, clubs, or even at outdoor public spaces. They are often held at high traffic locations to reach as many consumers as possible, or at venues at which a particular type of target consumer is expected to be present.

Spokesmodels

"Spokesmodel" is a term used for a model who is employed to be associated with a specific brand in advertisements. A spokesmodel may be a celebrity used only in advertisements (in contrast to a brand ambassador who is also expected to represent the company at various events), but more often the term refers to a model who is not a celebrity in their own right. A classic example of the spokesmodel are the models hired to be the Marlboro Man between 1954 and 1999.

Trade show models

Trade show models work a trade show floor-space or booth, and represent a company to attendees. Trade show models are typically not regular employees of the company, but are freelancers hired by the company renting the booth space. They are hired for several reasons: trade show models can make a company's booth more visibly distinguishable from the hundreds of other booths with which it competes for attendee attention. They are articulate and quickly learn and explain or disseminate information on the company and its product(s) and service(s). And they can assist a company in handling a large number of attendees which the company might otherwise not have enough employees to accommodate, possibly increasing the number of sales or leads resulting from participation in the show.

Atmosphere models

Atmosphere models are hired by the producers of themed events to enhance the atmosphere or ambience of their event. They are usually dressed in costumes exemplifying the theme of the event and are often placed strategically in various locations around the venue. It is common for event guests to have their picture taken with atmosphere models. For example, if someone is throwing a "Brazilian Day" celebration, they would hire models dressed in samba costumes and headdresses to stand or walk around the party.

Podium models

Podium models differ from runway models in that they don't walk down a runway, but rather just stand on an elevated platform during fashion presentation. They are kind of like live mannequins placed in various places throughout an event. Attendees can walk up to the models and inspect and even feel the clothing. Podium Modeling is a practical alternative way of presenting fashion when space is too limited to have a full runway fashion show.

Art models

Art models pose for any visual artist as part of the creative process. Art models are often paid professionals who provide a reference or inspiration for a work of art that includes the human figure. The most common types of art created using models are figure drawing, figure painting, sculpture and photography, but almost any medium may be used. Although commercial motives dominate over aesthetics in illustration, its artwork commonly employs models. Models are most frequently employed for art classes or by informal groups of experienced artists that gather to share the expense of a model.

Instagram models

WHO IS A MODEL

A model (from Middle French modelle) is a person with a role either to promote, display, or advertise commercial products (notably fashion clothing) or to serve as a visual aide for people who are creating works of art or to pose for photography.

Modelling ("modeling" in American English) is considered to be different from other types of public performance, such as acting or dancing. Although the difference between modelling and performing is not always clear, appearing in a film or a play is not generally considered to be "modelling".

Types of modelling include: fashion, glamour, fitness, bikini, fine art, body-part, promotional and commercial print models. Models are featured in a variety of media formats including: books, magazines, films, newspapers, internet and TV. Fashion models are sometimes featured in films: (Looker), reality TV shows (America's Next Top Model, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency), and music videos: ("Freedom! '90", "Wicked Game", "Daughters", and "Blurred Lines").

Celebrities, including actors, singers, sports personalities and reality TV stars, frequently take modelling contracts in addition to their regular work.

HISTORY OF MODELING

Early years

Modelling as a profession was first established in 1853 by Charles Frederick Worth, the "father of haute couture", when he asked his wife, Marie Vernet Worth, to model the clothes he designed. The term "house model" was coined to describe this type of work. Eventually, this became common practice for Parisian fashion houses. There were no standard physical measurement requirements for a model, and most designers would use women of varying sizes to demonstrate variety in their designs.

With the development of fashion photography, the modelling profession expanded to photo modelling. Models remained fairly anonymous, and relatively poorly paid, until the late 1950's. One of the first well-known models was Lisa Fonssagrives, who was very popular in the 1930's. Fonssagrives appeared on over 200 Vogue covers, and her name recognition led to the importance of Vogue in shaping the careers of fashion models. In 1946, Ford Models was established by Eileen and Gerard Ford in New York; it is one of the oldest model agencies in the world. One of the most popular models during the 1940's was Jinx Falkenburg who was paid $25 per hour, a large sum at the time. During the 1940's and 1950's, Wilhelmina Cooper, Jean Patchett, Dovima, Dorian Leigh, Suzy Parker, Evelyn Tripp, Carmen Dell'Orefice, and Lisa Fonssagrives dominated fashion. Dorothea Church was among the first black models in the industry to gain notoriety in Paris. However, these models were unknown outside the fashion community. Compared to today's models, the models of the 1950's were more voluptuous. Wilhelmina Cooper's measurements were 38"-24"-36" whereas Chanel Iman's measurements are 32"-23"-33".

The 1960s and the beginning of the industry

In the 1960's, the modelling world began to establish modelling agencies. Throughout Europe, secretarial services acted as models' agents charging them weekly rates for their messages and bookings. For the most part, models were responsible for their own billing. In Germany, agents were not allowed to work for a percentage of a person's earnings, so referred to themselves as secretaries. With the exception of a few models travelling to Paris or New York, travelling was relatively unheard of for a model. Most models only worked in one market due to different labor laws governing modelling in various countries. In the 1960's, Italy had many fashion houses and fashion magazines but was in dire need of models. Italian agencies would often coerce models to return to Italy without work visas by withholding their pay. They would also pay their models in cash, which models would have to hide from customs agents. It was not uncommon for models staying in hotels such as La Louisiana in Paris or the Arena in Milan to have their hotel rooms raided by the police looking for their work visas. It was rumored that competing agencies were behind the raids. This led many agencies to form worldwide chains; for example, the Marilyn Agency has branches in Paris and New York.

By the late 1960's, London was considered the best market in Europe due to its more organised and innovative approach to modelling. It was during this period that models began to become household names. Models like: Jean Shrimpton, Joanna Lumley, Tania Mallet, Celia Hammond, Twiggy, Penelope Tree, and Pauline Stone dominated the London fashion scene and were well paid, unlike their predecessors. Twiggy became The Face of '66 at the age of 16. At this time, model agencies were not as restrictive about the models they represented, although it was uncommon for them to sign shorter models. Twiggy, who stood at 5 feet 6 inches (168 cm) with a 32" bust and had a boy's haircut, is credited with changing model ideals. At that time, she earned £80 an hour, while the average wage was £15 a week.

In 1967, seven of the top model agents in London formed the Association of London Model Agents. The formation of this association helped legitimize modelling and changed the fashion industry. Even with a more professional attitude towards modelling, models were still expected to have their hair and makeup done before they arrived at a shoot. Meanwhile, agencies took responsibility for a model's promotional materials and branding. That same year, former top fashion model Wilhelmina Cooper opened up her own fashion agency with her husband called Wilhelmina Models. By 1968, FM Agency and Models 1 were established and represented models in a similar way that agencies do today. By the late 1960's, models were treated better and were making better wages. One of the innovators, Ford Models, was the first agency to advance models money they were owed and would often allow teen models, who did not live locally, to reside in their house, a precursor to model housing.

The 1970's and 1980's

The innovations of the 1960's flowed into the 1970's fashion scene. As a result of model industry associations and standards, model agencies became more business minded, and more thought went into a model's promotional materials. By this time, agencies were starting to pay for a model's publicity. In the early 1970's, Scandinavia had many tall, leggy, blonde-haired, blue-eyed models and not enough clients. It was during this time that Ford Models pioneered scouting. They would spend time working with agencies holding modelling contests. This was the precursor to the Ford Models Supermodel of the World competition which was established in 1980. Ford also focused their attentions on Brazil which had a wide array of seemingly "exotic" models, which eventually led to establishment of Ford Models Brazil. It was also during this time that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue debuted. The magazine set a trend by photographing "bigger and healthier" California models, and printing their names by their photos, thus turning many of them into household names and establishing the issue as a hallmark of supermodel status.

The 1970's marked numerous milestones in fashion. Beverly Johnson was the first African American to appear on the cover of U.S. Vogue in 1974. Models, including Grace Jones, Donyale Luna, Minah Bird, Naomi Sims, and Toukie Smith were some of the top black fashion models who paved the way for black women in fashion. In 1975, Margaux Hemingway landed a then-unprecedented million-dollar contract as the face of Fabergé's Babe perfume and the same year appeared on the cover of Time magazine, labelled one of the "New Beauties," giving further name recognition to fashion models.

Many of the world's most prominent modelling agencies were established in the 1970's and early 1980's. These agencies created the standard by which agencies now run. In 1974, Nevs Models was established in London with only a men's board, the first of its kind. Elite Models was founded in Paris in 1975 as well as Friday's Models in Japan. The next year Cal-Carries was established in Singapore, the first of a chain of agencies in Asia. In 1977, Select Model Management opened its doors as well as Why Not Models in Milan. By the 1980's, agencies such as Premier Model Management, Storm Models, Mikas, Marilyn, and Metropolitan Models had been established.

By the 1980's, most models were able to make modelling a full-time career. It was common for models to travel abroad and work throughout Europe. As modelling became global, numerous agencies began to think globally. In 1980, Ford Models, the innovator of scouting, introduced the Ford Models Supermodel of the World contest. That same year, John Casablancas opened Elite Models in New York. In 1981, cosmetics companies began contracting top models to lucrative endorsement deals. By 1983, Elite developed its own contest titled the Elite Model Look competition. In New York during the 1980's there were so-called "model wars" in which the Ford and Elite agencies fought over models and campaigns. Models were jumping back and forth between agencies such Elite, Wilhelmina, and Ford. In New York, the late 1980's trend was the boyish look in which models had short cropped hair and looked androgynous. In Europe, the trend was the exact opposite. During this time, a lot of American models who were considered more feminine looking moved abroad. By the mid-1980's, big hair was made popular by some musical groups, and the boyish look was out. The curvaceous models who had been popular in the 1950's and early 1970's were in style again. Models like Patti Hansen earned $200 an hour for print and $2,000 for television plus residuals. It was estimated that Hansen earned about $300,000 a year during the 1980's.

The 1990's to present

The early 1990's were dominated by the high fashion models of the late 1980's. In 1990, Linda Evangelista famously said to Vogue, "we don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day". Evangelista and her contemporaries, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz and Stephanie Seymour, became arguably the most recognizable models in the world, earning the moniker of "supermodel", and were boosted to global recognition and new heights of wealth for the industry. In 1991, Turlington signed a contract with Maybelline that paid her $800,000 for twelve days' work each year.

By the mid‑1990's, the new "heroin chic" movement became popular amongst New York and London editorial clients. While the heroin chic movement was inspired by model Jaime King, who suffered from a heroin addiction, it was Kate Moss who became its poster child through her ads for Calvin Klein. In spite of the heroin chic movement, model Claudia Schiffer earned $12 million. With the popularity of lingerie retailer Victoria's Secret, and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, there was a need for healthier-looking supermodels such as Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum to meet commercial modelling demand. The mid‑1990's also saw many Asian countries establishing modelling agencies.

By the late 1990's, the heroin chic era had run its course. Teen-inspired clothing infiltrated mainstream fashion, teen pop music was on the rise, and artists such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera popularized pleather and bare midriffs. As fashion changed to a more youthful demographic, the models who rose to fame had to be sexier for the digital age. Following Gisele Bundchen's breakthrough, a wave of Brazilian models including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Ana Beatriz Barros rose to fame on runways and became popular in commercial modelling throughout the 2000's. Some attribute this to decisions by magazines to replace models with celebrities their covers.

In the late 2000's, the Brazilians fell out of favor on the runways. Editorial clients were favoring models with a china-doll or alien look to them, such as Gemma Ward and Lily Cole. During the 2000's, Ford Models and NEXT Model Management were engaged in a legal battle, with each agency alleging that the other was stealing its models.

However, the biggest controversy of the 2000's was the health of high-fashion models participating in fashion week. While the health of models had been a concern since the 1970's, there were several high-profile news stories surrounding the deaths of young fashion models due to eating disorders and drug abuse. The British Fashion Council subsequently asked designers to sign a contract stating they would not use models under the age of sixteen. On March 3, 2012, Vogue banned models under the age of sixteen as well as models who appeared to have an eating disorder. Similarly, other countries placed bans on unhealthy, and underage models, including Spain, Italy, and Israel, which all enacted a minimum body mass index (BMI) requirement.

The often thin shape of many fashion models has been criticized for warping girls' body image and encouraging eating disorders. Organizers of a fashion show in Madrid in September 2006 turned away models who were judged to be underweight by medical personnel who were on hand. In February 2007, six months after her sister, Luisel Ramos, also a model, died, Uruguayan model Eliana Ramos became the third fashion model to die of malnutrition in six months. The second victim was Ana Carolina Reston. Luisel Ramos died of heart failure caused by anorexia nervosa just after stepping off the catwalk. In 2015, France passed a law requiring models to be declared healthy by a doctor in order to participate in fashion shows. The law also requires re-touched images to be marked as such in magazines.

In 2013, New York toughened its child labor law protections for models under the age of eighteen by passing New York Senate Bill No. 5486, which gives underage models the same labor protections afforded to child actors. Key new protections included the following: underage models are not to work before 5:00 pm or after 10:00 pm on school nights, nor were they to work later than 12:30 am on non-school nights; the models may not return to work less than twelve hours after they leave; a pediatric nurse must be on site; models under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult chaperone; parents or guardians of underage models must create a trust fund account into which employers will transfer a minimum of 15% of the child model's gross earnings; and employers must set aside time and a dedicated space for educational instruction.

TYPES OF MODELING

Runway modelling

Runway models showcase clothes from fashion designers, fashion media, and consumers. They are also called "live models" and are self-employed. They are wanted to be over the height of 5'8" for men and 5'6" for women. Runway models work in different locations, constantly travelling between those cities where fashion is well known—London, Milan, New York City, and Paris. Second-tier international fashion center cities include: Rome, Florence, Venice, Brescia, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Moscow. Cities where catalog work comprises the bulk of fashion packaging, merchandising and marketing work are: Miami, San Francisco, Sydney, Chicago, Toronto, Mexico City, Tokyo, Hamburg, London, and Beijing.

The criteria for runway models include certain height and weight requirements. During runway shows, models have to constantly change clothes and makeup. Models walk, turn, and stand in order to demonstrate a garment's key features. Models also go to interviews (called "go and sees") to present their portfolios. The more experience a model has, the more likely she/he is to be hired for a fashion show. A runway model can also work in other areas, such as department store fashion shows, and the most successful models sometimes create their own product lines or go into acting.

The British Association of Model Agents (AMA) says that female models should be around 34"-24"-34" and between 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) and 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) tall. The average model is very slender. Those who do not meet the size requirement may try to become a plus-size model. According to the New York Better Business Career Services website, the preferred dimensions for a male model are a height of 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) to 6 ft 2 in (189 cm), a waist of 29–32 in (73.66–81.28 cm) and a chest measurement of 39–40 in (99.06–101.60 cm). Male runway models are notably skinny and well toned.

Male and female models must also possess clear skin, healthy hair, and attractive facial features. Stringent weight and body proportion guidelines form the selection criteria by which established, and would‑be, models are judged for their placement suitability, on an ongoing basis. There can be some variation regionally, and by market tier, subject to current prevailing trends at any point, in any era, by agents, agencies and end-clients.

Formerly, the required measurements for models were 35"-23.5"-35" in (90-60-90 cm), the alleged measurements of Marilyn Monroe. Today's fashion models tend to have measurements closer to the AMA-recommended shape, but some - such as Afghan model Zohre Esmaeli - still have 35"-23.5"-35" measurements. Although in some fashion centers, a size 00 is more ideal than a size 0.

Plus-size models

Plus-size models are models who generally have larger measurements than editorial fashion models. The primary use of plus-size models is to appear in advertising and runway shows for plus-size labels. Plus-size models are also engaged in work that is not strictly related to selling large-sized clothing, e.g., stock photography and advertising photography for cosmetics, household and pharmaceutical products and sunglasses, footwear and watches. Therefore, plus-size models do not exclusively wear garments marketed as plus-size clothing. This is especially true when participating in fashion editorials for mainstream fashion magazines. Some plus-size models have appeared in runway shows and campaigns for mainstream retailers and designers such as Gucci, Guess, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Levi's and Versace Jeans.

Fit models

A fit model works as a sort of live mannequin to give designers and pattern makers feedback on the fit, feel, movement, and drape of a garment to be produced in a given size.

Glamour models

Glamour modelling focuses on sexuality and thus general requirements are often unclear, being dependent more on each individual case. Glamour models can be any size or shape. There is no industry standard for glamour modelling and it varies greatly by country. For the most part, glamour models are limited to modelling in calendars, men's magazines, such as Playboy, bikini modelling, lingerie modelling, fetish modelling, music videos, and extra work in films. However, some extremely popular glamour models transition into commercial print modelling, appearing in swimwear, bikini and lingerie campaigns.

It is widely considered that England created the market for glamour modelling when The Sun established Page 3 in 1969, a section in their newspaper which now features topless models. In the beginning, the newspaper featured sexually suggestive images of Penthouse and Playboy models. It was not until 1970 that models appeared topless. In the 1980's, The Sun's competitors followed suit and produced their own Page 3 sections. It was during this time that glamour models first came to prominence with the likes of Samantha Fox. As a result, the United Kingdom has a very large glamour market and has numerous glamour modelling agencies to this day.

It was not until the 1990's that modern glamour modelling was established. During this time, the fashion industry was promoting models with waif bodies and androgynous looking women, which left a void. Several fashion models, who were deemed too commercial, and too curvaceous, were frustrated with industry standards, and took a different approach. Models such as Victoria Silvstedt left the fashion world and began modelling for men's magazines. In the previous decades, posing nude for Playboy resulted in models losing their agencies and endorsements. Playboy was a stepping stone which catapulted the careers of Victoria Silvstedt, Pamela Anderson, and Anna Nicole Smith. Pamela Anderson became so popular from her Playboy spreads that she was able to land roles on Home Improvement and Baywatch.

In the mid-1990's, a series of men's magazines were established such as Maxim, FHM, and Stuff. At the same time, magazines including Sweden's Slitz re-branded themselves as men's magazines. Pre-internet, these magazines were popular among men in their late teens and early twenties because they were considered to be more tasteful than their predecessors. With the glamour market growing, fashion moved away from the waifs and onto Brazilian bombshells. The glamour market, which consisted mostly of commercial fashion models and commercial print models, became its own genre due to its popularity. Even in a large market like the United Kingdom, however, glamour models are not usually signed exclusively to one agency as they can not rely financially on one agency to provide them with enough work. It was, and still is, a common practice for glamour models to partake in kiss-and-tell interviews about their dalliances with famous men. The notoriety of their alleged bed-hopping often propels their popularity and they are often promoted by their current or former fling. With Page 3 models becoming fixtures in the British tabloids, glamour models such as Jordan, now known as Katie Price, became household names. By 2004, Page 3 regulars earned anywhere from £30,000 to 40,000, where the average salary of a non-Page 3 model, as of 2011, was between £10,000 and 20,000. In the early 2000's, glamour models, and aspiring glamour models, appeared on reality television shows such as Big Brother to gain fame. Several Big Brother alumni parlayed their fifteen minutes of fame into successful glamour modelling careers. However, the glamour market became saturated by the mid-2000's, and numerous men's magazines including Arena, Stuff and FHM in the United States went under. During this time, there was a growing trend of glamour models, including Kellie Acreman and Lauren Pope, becoming DJs to supplement their income. In a 2012 interview, Keeley Hazell said that going topless is not the best way to achieve success and that "[she] was lucky to be in that 1% of people that get that, and become really successful."

Alternative models

An alternative model is any model who does not fit into the conventional model types and may include punk, goth, fetish, and tattooed models or models with distinctive attributes. This type of modeling is usually a cross between glamour modeling and art modeling. Publishers such as Goliath Books in Germany introduced alternative models and punk photography to larger audiences. Billi Gordon, then known as Wilbert Anthony Gordon, was the top greeting card model in the world and inspired a cottage industry including greeting cards, T-shirts, fans, stationery, gift bags, etc.

Parts models

Some models are employed for their body parts. For example, hand models may be used to promote products held in the hand and nail-related products. (e.g. rings, other jewelry or nail polish). They are frequently part of television commercials. Many parts models have exceptionally attractive body parts, but there is also demand for unattractive or unusual looking body parts for particular campaigns.

Hands are the most in-demand body parts. Feet models are also in high demand, particularly those who fit sample size shoes. Models are also successful modelling other specific parts including abs, arms, back, bust or chest, legs, and lips. Some petite models (females who are under 5 ft 6 in (1.68 m) and do not qualify as fashion models) have found success in women's body part modelling.

Parts model divisions can be found at agencies worldwide. Several agencies solely represent parts models, including Hired Hands in London, Body Parts Models in Los Angeles, Carmen Hand Model Management in New York and Parts Models in New York. Parts Models is the largest parts agency, representing over 300 parts models.

Fitness models

Fitness modelling focuses on displaying a healthy, toned physique. Fitness models usually have defined muscle groups. The model's body weight is heavier due to muscle weighing more than fat; however, they have a lower body fat percentage because the muscles are toned and sculpted. Fitness models are often used in magazine advertising. Sometimes they are certified personal fitness trainers. However, other fitness models are also athletes and compete as professionals in fitness and figure competitions. There are several agencies in large markets such as New York, London, Germany that have fitness modelling agencies. While there is a large market for these models, most of these agencies are a secondary agency promoting models who typically earn their primary income as commercial models. Plus there are also magazines that gear towards specifically fitness modeling or getting fit and in shape. Fitness Models showcase their fitter side of their bodies on the covers gearing towards specific competitions in fitness and figure competitions.

Gravure idols

A gravure idol, often abbreviated to gradol, is a Japanese female model who primarily models on magazines, especially men's magazines, photobooks or DVDs.

"Gravure" (グラビア) is a Wasei-eigo term derived from "rotogravure", which is a type of intaglio printing process that was once a staple of newspaper photo features. The rotogravure process is still used for commercial printing of magazines, postcards, and cardboard product packaging.

Gravure idols appear in a wide range of photography styles and genres. Their photos are largely aimed at male audiences with poses or activities intended to be provocative or suggestive, generally accentuated by an air of playfulness and innocence rather than aggressive sexuality. Although gravure models may sometimes wear clothing that exposes most of their body, they seldom appear fully nude. Gravure models may be as young as pre-teen age up to early thirties. In addition to appearing in mainstream magazines, gravure idols often release their own professional photobooks and DVDs for their fans. Many popular female idols in Japan launched their careers by starting out as gravure idols.

Commercial print and on-camera models

Commercial print models generally appear in print ads for non-fashion products, and in television commercials. Commercial print models can earn up to $250 an hour. Commercial print models are usually non-exclusive, and primarily work in one location.

There are several large fashion agencies that have commercial print divisions, including Ford Models in the United States.

Promotional models

A promotional model is a model hired to drive consumer demand for a product, service, brand, or concept by directly interacting with potential consumers. The vast majority of promotional models tend to be attractive in physical appearance. They serve to provide information about the product or service and make it appealing to consumers. While the length of interaction may be short, the promotional model delivers a live experience that reflects on the product or service he or she is representing. This form of marketing touches fewer consumers for the cost than traditional advertising media (such as print, radio, and television); however, the consumer's perception of a brand, product, service, or company is often more profoundly affected by a live person-to-person experience.

Marketing campaigns that make use of promotional models may take place in stores or shopping malls, at tradeshows, special promotional events, clubs, or even at outdoor public spaces. They are often held at high traffic locations to reach as many consumers as possible, or at venues at which a particular type of target consumer is expected to be present.

Spokesmodels

"Spokesmodel" is a term used for a model who is employed to be associated with a specific brand in advertisements. A spokesmodel may be a celebrity used only in advertisements (in contrast to a brand ambassador who is also expected to represent the company at various events), but more often the term refers to a model who is not a celebrity in their own right. A classic example of the spokesmodel are the models hired to be the Marlboro Man between 1954 and 1999.

Trade show models

Trade show models work a trade show floor-space or booth, and represent a company to attendees. Trade show models are typically not regular employees of the company, but are freelancers hired by the company renting the booth space. They are hired for several reasons: trade show models can make a company's booth more visibly distinguishable from the hundreds of other booths with which it competes for attendee attention. They are articulate and quickly learn and explain or disseminate information on the company and its product(s) and service(s). And they can assist a company in handling a large number of attendees which the company might otherwise not have enough employees to accommodate, possibly increasing the number of sales or leads resulting from participation in the show.

Atmosphere models

Atmosphere models are hired by the producers of themed events to enhance the atmosphere or ambience of their event. They are usually dressed in costumes exemplifying the theme of the event and are often placed strategically in various locations around the venue. It is common for event guests to have their picture taken with atmosphere models. For example, if someone is throwing a "Brazilian Day" celebration, they would hire models dressed in samba costumes and headdresses to stand or walk around the party.

Podium models

Podium models differ from runway models in that they don't walk down a runway, but rather just stand on an elevated platform during fashion presentation. They are kind of like live mannequins placed in various places throughout an event. Attendees can walk up to the models and inspect and even feel the clothing. Podium Modeling is a practical alternative way of presenting fashion when space is too limited to have a full runway fashion show.

Art models

Art models pose for any visual artist as part of the creative process. Art models are often paid professionals who provide a reference or inspiration for a work of art that includes the human figure. The most common types of art created using models are figure drawing, figure painting, sculpture and photography, but almost any medium may be used. Although commercial motives dominate over aesthetics in illustration, its artwork commonly employs models. Models are most frequently employed for art classes or by informal groups of experienced artists that gather to share the expense of a model.

Instagram models

Instagram models are a recent phenomenon due to the rise of social media. These models gain their popularity due to how many followers they have on social media. Some Instagram models gain high-profile modeling gigs and become household names. High-profile model, Jen Selter, kicked off the Instagram model craze. Recently, Anna Faith and Caitlin O'Connor among many others, have had great success as Instagram Models.

WHO IS A MODEL

A model (from Middle French modelle) is a person with a role either to promote, display, or advertise commercial products (notably fashion clothing) or to serve as a visual aide for people who are creating works of art or to pose for photography.

Modelling ("modeling" in American English) is considered to be different from other types of public performance, such as acting or dancing. Although the difference between modelling and performing is not always clear, appearing in a film or a play is not generally considered to be "modelling".

Types of modelling include: fashion, glamour, fitness, bikini, fine art, body-part, promotional and commercial print models. Models are featured in a variety of media formats including: books, magazines, films, newspapers, internet and TV. Fashion models are sometimes featured in films: (Looker), reality TV shows (America's Next Top Model, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency), and music videos: ("Freedom! '90", "Wicked Game", "Daughters", and "Blurred Lines").

Celebrities, including actors, singers, sports personalities and reality TV stars, frequently take modelling contracts in addition to their regular work.

HISTORY OF MODELING

Early years

Modelling as a profession was first established in 1853 by Charles Frederick Worth, the "father of haute couture", when he asked his wife, Marie Vernet Worth, to model the clothes he designed. The term "house model" was coined to describe this type of work. Eventually, this became common practice for Parisian fashion houses. There were no standard physical measurement requirements for a model, and most designers would use women of varying sizes to demonstrate variety in their designs.

With the development of fashion photography, the modelling profession expanded to photo modelling. Models remained fairly anonymous, and relatively poorly paid, until the late 1950's. One of the first well-known models was Lisa Fonssagrives, who was very popular in the 1930's. Fonssagrives appeared on over 200 Vogue covers, and her name recognition led to the importance of Vogue in shaping the careers of fashion models. In 1946, Ford Models was established by Eileen and Gerard Ford in New York; it is one of the oldest model agencies in the world. One of the most popular models during the 1940's was Jinx Falkenburg who was paid $25 per hour, a large sum at the time. During the 1940's and 1950's, Wilhelmina Cooper, Jean Patchett, Dovima, Dorian Leigh, Suzy Parker, Evelyn Tripp, Carmen Dell'Orefice, and Lisa Fonssagrives dominated fashion. Dorothea Church was among the first black models in the industry to gain notoriety in Paris. However, these models were unknown outside the fashion community. Compared to today's models, the models of the 1950's were more voluptuous. Wilhelmina Cooper's measurements were 38"-24"-36" whereas Chanel Iman's measurements are 32"-23"-33".

The 1960s and the beginning of the industry

In the 1960's, the modelling world began to establish modelling agencies. Throughout Europe, secretarial services acted as models' agents charging them weekly rates for their messages and bookings. For the most part, models were responsible for their own billing. In Germany, agents were not allowed to work for a percentage of a person's earnings, so referred to themselves as secretaries. With the exception of a few models travelling to Paris or New York, travelling was relatively unheard of for a model. Most models only worked in one market due to different labor laws governing modelling in various countries. In the 1960's, Italy had many fashion houses and fashion magazines but was in dire need of models. Italian agencies would often coerce models to return to Italy without work visas by withholding their pay. They would also pay their models in cash, which models would have to hide from customs agents. It was not uncommon for models staying in hotels such as La Louisiana in Paris or the Arena in Milan to have their hotel rooms raided by the police looking for their work visas. It was rumored that competing agencies were behind the raids. This led many agencies to form worldwide chains; for example, the Marilyn Agency has branches in Paris and New York.

By the late 1960's, London was considered the best market in Europe due to its more organised and innovative approach to modelling. It was during this period that models began to become household names. Models like: Jean Shrimpton, Joanna Lumley, Tania Mallet, Celia Hammond, Twiggy, Penelope Tree, and Pauline Stone dominated the London fashion scene and were well paid, unlike their predecessors. Twiggy became The Face of '66 at the age of 16. At this time, model agencies were not as restrictive about the models they represented, although it was uncommon for them to sign shorter models. Twiggy, who stood at 5 feet 6 inches (168 cm) with a 32" bust and had a boy's haircut, is credited with changing model ideals. At that time, she earned £80 an hour, while the average wage was £15 a week.

In 1967, seven of the top model agents in London formed the Association of London Model Agents. The formation of this association helped legitimize modelling and changed the fashion industry. Even with a more professional attitude towards modelling, models were still expected to have their hair and makeup done before they arrived at a shoot. Meanwhile, agencies took responsibility for a model's promotional materials and branding. That same year, former top fashion model Wilhelmina Cooper opened up her own fashion agency with her husband called Wilhelmina Models. By 1968, FM Agency and Models 1 were established and represented models in a similar way that agencies do today. By the late 1960's, models were treated better and were making better wages. One of the innovators, Ford Models, was the first agency to advance models money they were owed and would often allow teen models, who did not live locally, to reside in their house, a precursor to model housing.

The 1970's and 1980's

The innovations of the 1960's flowed into the 1970's fashion scene. As a result of model industry associations and standards, model agencies became more business minded, and more thought went into a model's promotional materials. By this time, agencies were starting to pay for a model's publicity. In the early 1970's, Scandinavia had many tall, leggy, blonde-haired, blue-eyed models and not enough clients. It was during this time that Ford Models pioneered scouting. They would spend time working with agencies holding modelling contests. This was the precursor to the Ford Models Supermodel of the World competition which was established in 1980. Ford also focused their attentions on Brazil which had a wide array of seemingly "exotic" models, which eventually led to establishment of Ford Models Brazil. It was also during this time that the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue debuted. The magazine set a trend by photographing "bigger and healthier" California models, and printing their names by their photos, thus turning many of them into household names and establishing the issue as a hallmark of supermodel status.

The 1970's marked numerous milestones in fashion. Beverly Johnson was the first African American to appear on the cover of U.S. Vogue in 1974. Models, including Grace Jones, Donyale Luna, Minah Bird, Naomi Sims, and Toukie Smith were some of the top black fashion models who paved the way for black women in fashion. In 1975, Margaux Hemingway landed a then-unprecedented million-dollar contract as the face of Fabergé's Babe perfume and the same year appeared on the cover of Time magazine, labelled one of the "New Beauties," giving further name recognition to fashion models.

Many of the world's most prominent modelling agencies were established in the 1970's and early 1980's. These agencies created the standard by which agencies now run. In 1974, Nevs Models was established in London with only a men's board, the first of its kind. Elite Models was founded in Paris in 1975 as well as Friday's Models in Japan. The next year Cal-Carries was established in Singapore, the first of a chain of agencies in Asia. In 1977, Select Model Management opened its doors as well as Why Not Models in Milan. By the 1980's, agencies such as Premier Model Management, Storm Models, Mikas, Marilyn, and Metropolitan Models had been established.

By the 1980's, most models were able to make modelling a full-time career. It was common for models to travel abroad and work throughout Europe. As modelling became global, numerous agencies began to think globally. In 1980, Ford Models, the innovator of scouting, introduced the Ford Models Supermodel of the World contest. That same year, John Casablancas opened Elite Models in New York. In 1981, cosmetics companies began contracting top models to lucrative endorsement deals. By 1983, Elite developed its own contest titled the Elite Model Look competition. In New York during the 1980's there were so-called "model wars" in which the Ford and Elite agencies fought over models and campaigns. Models were jumping back and forth between agencies such Elite, Wilhelmina, and Ford. In New York, the late 1980's trend was the boyish look in which models had short cropped hair and looked androgynous. In Europe, the trend was the exact opposite. During this time, a lot of American models who were considered more feminine looking moved abroad. By the mid-1980's, big hair was made popular by some musical groups, and the boyish look was out. The curvaceous models who had been popular in the 1950's and early 1970's were in style again. Models like Patti Hansen earned $200 an hour for print and $2,000 for television plus residuals. It was estimated that Hansen earned about $300,000 a year during the 1980's.

The 1990's to present

The early 1990's were dominated by the high fashion models of the late 1980's. In 1990, Linda Evangelista famously said to Vogue, "we don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day". Evangelista and her contemporaries, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz and Stephanie Seymour, became arguably the most recognizable models in the world, earning the moniker of "supermodel", and were boosted to global recognition and new heights of wealth for the industry. In 1991, Turlington signed a contract with Maybelline that paid her $800,000 for twelve days' work each year.

By the mid‑1990's, the new "heroin chic" movement became popular amongst New York and London editorial clients. While the heroin chic movement was inspired by model Jaime King, who suffered from a heroin addiction, it was Kate Moss who became its poster child through her ads for Calvin Klein. In spite of the heroin chic movement, model Claudia Schiffer earned $12 million. With the popularity of lingerie retailer Victoria's Secret, and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, there was a need for healthier-looking supermodels such as Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum to meet commercial modelling demand. The mid‑1990's also saw many Asian countries establishing modelling agencies.

By the late 1990's, the heroin chic era had run its course. Teen-inspired clothing infiltrated mainstream fashion, teen pop music was on the rise, and artists such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera popularized pleather and bare midriffs. As fashion changed to a more youthful demographic, the models who rose to fame had to be sexier for the digital age. Following Gisele Bundchen's breakthrough, a wave of Brazilian models including Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Ana Beatriz Barros rose to fame on runways and became popular in commercial modelling throughout the 2000's. Some attribute this to decisions by magazines to replace models with celebrities their covers.

In the late 2000's, the Brazilians fell out of favor on the runways. Editorial clients were favoring models with a china-doll or alien look to them, such as Gemma Ward and Lily Cole. During the 2000's, Ford Models and NEXT Model Management were engaged in a legal battle, with each agency alleging that the other was stealing its models.

However, the biggest controversy of the 2000's was the health of high-fashion models participating in fashion week. While the health of models had been a concern since the 1970's, there were several high-profile news stories surrounding the deaths of young fashion models due to eating disorders and drug abuse. The British Fashion Council subsequently asked designers to sign a contract stating they would not use models under the age of sixteen. On March 3, 2012, Vogue banned models under the age of sixteen as well as models who appeared to have an eating disorder. Similarly, other countries placed bans on unhealthy, and underage models, including Spain, Italy, and Israel, which all enacted a minimum body mass index (BMI) requirement.

The often thin shape of many fashion models has been criticized for warping girls' body image and encouraging eating disorders. Organizers of a fashion show in Madrid in September 2006 turned away models who were judged to be underweight by medical personnel who were on hand. In February 2007, six months after her sister, Luisel Ramos, also a model, died, Uruguayan model Eliana Ramos became the third fashion model to die of malnutrition in six months. The second victim was Ana Carolina Reston. Luisel Ramos died of heart failure caused by anorexia nervosa just after stepping off the catwalk. In 2015, France passed a law requiring models to be declared healthy by a doctor in order to participate in fashion shows. The law also requires re-touched images to be marked as such in magazines.

In 2013, New York toughened its child labor law protections for models under the age of eighteen by passing New York Senate Bill No. 5486, which gives underage models the same labor protections afforded to child actors. Key new protections included the following: underage models are not to work before 5:00 pm or after 10:00 pm on school nights, nor were they to work later than 12:30 am on non-school nights; the models may not return to work less than twelve hours after they leave; a pediatric nurse must be on site; models under sixteen must be accompanied by an adult chaperone; parents or guardians of underage models must create a trust fund account into which employers will transfer a minimum of 15% of the child model's gross earnings; and employers must set aside time and a dedicated space for educational instruction.

TYPES OF MODELING

Runway modelling

Runway models showcase clothes from fashion designers, fashion media, and consumers. They are also called "live models" and are self-employed. They are wanted to be over the height of 5'8" for men and 5'6" for women. Runway models work in different locations, constantly travelling between those cities where fashion is well known—London, Milan, New York City, and Paris. Second-tier international fashion center cities include: Rome, Florence, Venice, Brescia, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Moscow. Cities where catalog work comprises the bulk of fashion packaging, merchandising and marketing work are: Miami, San Francisco, Sydney, Chicago, Toronto, Mexico City, Tokyo, Hamburg, London, and Beijing.

The criteria for runway models include certain height and weight requirements. During runway shows, models have to constantly change clothes and makeup. Models walk, turn, and stand in order to demonstrate a garment's key features. Models also go to interviews (called "go and sees") to present their portfolios. The more experience a model has, the more likely she/he is to be hired for a fashion show. A runway model can also work in other areas, such as department store fashion shows, and the most successful models sometimes create their own product lines or go into acting.

The British Association of Model Agents (AMA) says that female models should be around 34"-24"-34" and between 5 ft 8 in (173 cm) and 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) tall. The average model is very slender. Those who do not meet the size requirement may try to become a plus-size model. According to the New York Better Business Career Services website, the preferred dimensions for a male model are a height of 5 ft 11 in (180 cm) to 6 ft 2 in (189 cm), a waist of 29–32 in (73.66–81.28 cm) and a chest measurement of 39–40 in (99.06–101.60 cm). Male runway models are notably skinny and well toned.

Male and female models must also possess clear skin, healthy hair, and attractive facial features. Stringent weight and body proportion guidelines form the selection criteria by which established, and would‑be, models are judged for their placement suitability, on an ongoing basis. There can be some variation regionally, and by market tier, subject to current prevailing trends at any point, in any era, by agents, agencies and end-clients.

Formerly, the required measurements for models were 35"-23.5"-35" in (90-60-90 cm), the alleged measurements of Marilyn Monroe. Today's fashion models tend to have measurements closer to the AMA-recommended shape, but some - such as Afghan model Zohre Esmaeli - still have 35"-23.5"-35" measurements. Although in some fashion centers, a size 00 is more ideal than a size 0.

Plus-size models

Plus-size models are models who generally have larger measurements than editorial fashion models. The primary use of plus-size models is to appear in advertising and runway shows for plus-size labels. Plus-size models are also engaged in work that is not strictly related to selling large-sized clothing, e.g., stock photography and advertising photography for cosmetics, household and pharmaceutical products and sunglasses, footwear and watches. Therefore, plus-size models do not exclusively wear garments marketed as plus-size clothing. This is especially true when participating in fashion editorials for mainstream fashion magazines. Some plus-size models have appeared in runway shows and campaigns for mainstream retailers and designers such as Gucci, Guess, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Levi's and Versace Jeans.

Fit models

A fit model works as a sort of live mannequin to give designers and pattern makers feedback on the fit, feel, movement, and drape of a garment to be produced in a given size.

Glamour models

Glamour modelling focuses on sexuality and thus general requirements are often unclear, being dependent more on each individual case. Glamour models can be any size or shape. There is no industry standard for glamour modelling and it varies greatly by country. For the most part, glamour models are limited to modelling in calendars, men's magazines, such as Playboy, bikini modelling, lingerie modelling, fetish modelling, music videos, and extra work in films. However, some extremely popular glamour models transition into commercial print modelling, appearing in swimwear, bikini and lingerie campaigns.

It is widely considered that England created the market for glamour modelling when The Sun established Page 3 in 1969, a section in their newspaper which now features topless models. In the beginning, the newspaper featured sexually suggestive images of Penthouse and Playboy models. It was not until 1970 that models appeared topless. In the 1980's, The Sun's competitors followed suit and produced their own Page 3 sections. It was during this time that glamour models first came to prominence with the likes of Samantha Fox. As a result, the United Kingdom has a very large glamour market and has numerous glamour modelling agencies to this day.

It was not until the 1990's that modern glamour modelling was established. During this time, the fashion industry was promoting models with waif bodies and androgynous looking women, which left a void. Several fashion models, who were deemed too commercial, and too curvaceous, were frustrated with industry standards, and took a different approach. Models such as Victoria Silvstedt left the fashion world and began modelling for men's magazines. In the previous decades, posing nude for Playboy resulted in models losing their agencies and endorsements. Playboy was a stepping stone which catapulted the careers of Victoria Silvstedt, Pamela Anderson, and Anna Nicole Smith. Pamela Anderson became so popular from her Playboy spreads that she was able to land roles on Home Improvement and Baywatch.

In the mid-1990's, a series of men's magazines were established such as Maxim, FHM, and Stuff. At the same time, magazines including Sweden's Slitz re-branded themselves as men's magazines. Pre-internet, these magazines were popular among men in their late teens and early twenties because they were considered to be more tasteful than their predecessors. With the glamour market growing, fashion moved away from the waifs and onto Brazilian bombshells. The glamour market, which consisted mostly of commercial fashion models and commercial print models, became its own genre due to its popularity. Even in a large market like the United Kingdom, however, glamour models are not usually signed exclusively to one agency as they can not rely financially on one agency to provide them with enough work. It was, and still is, a common practice for glamour models to partake in kiss-and-tell interviews about their dalliances with famous men. The notoriety of their alleged bed-hopping often propels their popularity and they are often promoted by their current or former fling. With Page 3 models becoming fixtures in the British tabloids, glamour models such as Jordan, now known as Katie Price, became household names. By 2004, Page 3 regulars earned anywhere from £30,000 to 40,000, where the average salary of a non-Page 3 model, as of 2011, was between £10,000 and 20,000. In the early 2000's, glamour models, and aspiring glamour models, appeared on reality television shows such as Big Brother to gain fame. Several Big Brother alumni parlayed their fifteen minutes of fame into successful glamour modelling careers. However, the glamour market became saturated by the mid-2000's, and numerous men's magazines including Arena, Stuff and FHM in the United States went under. During this time, there was a growing trend of glamour models, including Kellie Acreman and Lauren Pope, becoming DJs to supplement their income. In a 2012 interview, Keeley Hazell said that going topless is not the best way to achieve success and that "[she] was lucky to be in that 1% of people that get that, and become really successful."

Alternative models

An alternative model is any model who does not fit into the conventional model types and may include punk, goth, fetish, and tattooed models or models with distinctive attributes. This type of modeling is usually a cross between glamour modeling and art modeling. Publishers such as Goliath Books in Germany introduced alternative models and punk photography to larger audiences. Billi Gordon, then known as Wilbert Anthony Gordon, was the top greeting card model in the world and inspired a cottage industry including greeting cards, T-shirts, fans, stationery, gift bags, etc.

Parts models

Some models are employed for their body parts. For example, hand models may be used to promote products held in the hand and nail-related products. (e.g. rings, other jewelry or nail polish). They are frequently part of television commercials. Many parts models have exceptionally attractive body parts, but there is also demand for unattractive or unusual looking body parts for particular campaigns.

Hands are the most in-demand body parts. Feet models are also in high demand, particularly those who fit sample size shoes. Models are also successful modelling other specific parts including abs, arms, back, bust or chest, legs, and lips. Some petite models (females who are under 5 ft 6 in (1.68 m) and do not qualify as fashion models) have found success in women's body part modelling.

Parts model divisions can be found at agencies worldwide. Several agencies solely represent parts models, including Hired Hands in London, Body Parts Models in Los Angeles, Carmen Hand Model Management in New York and Parts Models in New York. Parts Models is the largest parts agency, representing over 300 parts models.

Fitness models

Fitness modelling focuses on displaying a healthy, toned physique. Fitness models usually have defined muscle groups. The model's body weight is heavier due to muscle weighing more than fat; however, they have a lower body fat percentage because the muscles are toned and sculpted. Fitness models are often used in magazine advertising. Sometimes they are certified personal fitness trainers. However, other fitness models are also athletes and compete as professionals in fitness and figure competitions. There are several agencies in large markets such as New York, London, Germany that have fitness modelling agencies. While there is a large market for these models, most of these agencies are a secondary agency promoting models who typically earn their primary income as commercial models. Plus there are also magazines that gear towards specifically fitness modeling or getting fit and in shape. Fitness Models showcase their fitter side of their bodies on the covers gearing towards specific competitions in fitness and figure competitions.

Gravure idols

A gravure idol, often abbreviated to gradol, is a Japanese female model who primarily models on magazines, especially men's magazines, photobooks or DVDs.

"Gravure" (グラビア) is a Wasei-eigo term derived from "rotogravure", which is a type of intaglio printing process that was once a staple of newspaper photo features. The rotogravure process is still used for commercial printing of magazines, postcards, and cardboard product packaging.

Gravure idols appear in a wide range of photography styles and genres. Their photos are largely aimed at male audiences with poses or activities intended to be provocative or suggestive, generally accentuated by an air of playfulness and innocence rather than aggressive sexuality. Although gravure models may sometimes wear clothing that exposes most of their body, they seldom appear fully nude. Gravure models may be as young as pre-teen age up to early thirties. In addition to appearing in mainstream magazines, gravure idols often release their own professional photobooks and DVDs for their fans. Many popular female idols in Japan launched their careers by starting out as gravure idols.

Commercial print and on-camera models

Commercial print models generally appear in print ads for non-fashion products, and in television commercials. Commercial print models can earn up to $250 an hour. Commercial print models are usually non-exclusive, and primarily work in one location.

There are several large fashion agencies that have commercial print divisions, including Ford Models in the United States.

Promotional models

A promotional model is a model hired to drive consumer demand for a product, service, brand, or concept by directly interacting with potential consumers. The vast majority of promotional models tend to be attractive in physical appearance. They serve to provide information about the product or service and make it appealing to consumers. While the length of interaction may be short, the promotional model delivers a live experience that reflects on the product or service he or she is representing. This form of marketing touches fewer consumers for the cost than traditional advertising media (such as print, radio, and television); however, the consumer's perception of a brand, product, service, or company is often more profoundly affected by a live person-to-person experience.

Marketing campaigns that make use of promotional models may take place in stores or shopping malls, at tradeshows, special promotional events, clubs, or even at outdoor public spaces. They are often held at high traffic locations to reach as many consumers as possible, or at venues at which a particular type of target consumer is expected to be present.

Spokesmodels

"Spokesmodel" is a term used for a model who is employed to be associated with a specific brand in advertisements. A spokesmodel may be a celebrity used only in advertisements (in contrast to a brand ambassador who is also expected to represent the company at various events), but more often the term refers to a model who is not a celebrity in their own right. A classic example of the spokesmodel are the models hired to be the Marlboro Man between 1954 and 1999.

Trade show models

Trade show models work a trade show floor-space or booth, and represent a company to attendees. Trade show models are typically not regular employees of the company, but are freelancers hired by the company renting the booth space. They are hired for several reasons: trade show models can make a company's booth more visibly distinguishable from the hundreds of other booths with which it competes for attendee attention. They are articulate and quickly learn and explain or disseminate information on the company and its product(s) and service(s). And they can assist a company in handling a large number of attendees which the company might otherwise not have enough employees to accommodate, possibly increasing the number of sales or leads resulting from participation in the show.

Atmosphere models

Atmosphere models are hired by the producers of themed events to enhance the atmosphere or ambience of their event. They are usually dressed in costumes exemplifying the theme of the event and are often placed strategically in various locations around the venue. It is common for event guests to have their picture taken with atmosphere models. For example, if someone is throwing a "Brazilian Day" celebration, they would hire models dressed in samba costumes and headdresses to stand or walk around the party.

Podium models

Podium models differ from runway models in that they don't walk down a runway, but rather just stand on an elevated platform during fashion presentation. They are kind of like live mannequins placed in various p
