Petite Modeling Requirements
The requirements for a petite model are not based on height and weight, instead they are based on commercial print modeling, the print world is where a shorter girl can find opportunities and she should put away fashion, leave the slutty internet modeling pics behind her, and delete them as soon as possible.
A petite model needs to..
Have a bigger personality than any inches and feet. Height isn't such an issue for print modeling, but being proportioned is important and helpful. For print shots can be just of face, 3/4 body shots or full body. There is also parts modeling. Hands,feet, legs, etc for a petite model to consider, with the right photos to co-side her commercial print modeling photos.
Have a vibrant energy and smile they can sell a product, think ads for skincare, haircare, when ever you see a smile in an ad, that is a commercial print model, she is most likely not a tall giraffe. You will not typically see these ads in Elle, Vogue or Baazar, but you can see some in Marie Claire, Cosmo, Glamour, and these types of models on TV commercials. Start noticing ads that relate to the model you can actually be, get rid of the illusion and focus on the truth of where you fit in to the business.
The requirements are really based around personality, energy and having a friendly look and fresh look.
