Barbara Nicoli, casting director for Gucci [5 Top Casting Directors Explain Why Runways Are So White]
It’s worth taking note of that in China, where luxury sales continue to rise, Gucci today has 53 stores across 33 cities. What does it say to their Chinese customers that they are ‘far from [Gucci’s] idea of the woman wearing [their] clothes’????
The thing is.. Kate Moss is the exception not the rule. I mean, doesn’t every short aspiring model wish they could be the next Kate?
I like short models and often find that the successful ones are the best at actually modeling because it is so competitive and they’re up against girls who are 5’11” so there’s really no room for imperfections. You’ve got to have everything so spot on and have that x factor that would make a casting director want to book you over the girls who are 5 inches taller.
I was like a Prada bag in a sea of Coach bags in high school
There are lots of models with prominent noses (Julia Nobis, Vanessa Axente, Ros Georgiou, Marie Piovesan, Carla Gebhart, Maria Bradley, Marte Mei van Haaster, Othilia Simon, Franzi Mueller, Elena Bartels, Ava Smith etc etc) but without seeing what you look like this question is like asking how long a piece of string is. Why don’t you just send some pictures into an agency and find out?
