Can you be a model if you are short?

I really would love to be a model I'm the perfect size, just need some tonning. But someone said I'm too short I'm 5'3. But I love modeling, clothing and pictures.

  • You can but its hard and you have to be extremely beautiful and unique.

    You can be a model for magazines but never for highfashion on the runway.

  • SMH @ GaG.. . The vast majority of models are tall, 95%. You have little to no chance.

  • You can in some agencies. There are some models who are quite petite because they're so short, and they still qualify to be a photography model - that's the only type of modeling you'll ever get away with your height. Like I said, it depends. The agency has to really love your looks. Give it a try!

  • There are petite models, but I think they still run around 170cm... Don't think they really crave for a shorter girl than that...

  • Sure you can. I have a friend who is 5'5 who did some modeling in Asia. Mostly catalog work though.

    Import models are usually petite too, although I'm not sure you'd like that kind of work.

  • You could always consider an Asian market-- most Asian models (catalog or magazine fashion wise) are around your height, but you would also have to have a petite build since Asian sized clothes run pretty small on most western women. Good luck!

  • If the photography and brand of whatever is being promoted likes you, than yes. Petite modeling, look into it.
