is it because of the walk?

  • makes them look taller, slimmer, and their feet smaller, also heels are common in modelling and they need to know you are capable

  • Yeah, probably to show that they have a nice strut and also to prove that they can walk in heels. Don't need any runway accidents.

  • To look taller and the skinny pointy part of the heel matches their tiny bodies.

  • You generally need to be tall, to model. I realize not all models are tall, but, if they see you're tall with them, they'll generally cast you

    • Yes you have

    • Show All
    • I also have, and here they say that you have to have the posture and show that you can walk in them. It's almost a must. I also live in Europe lol it's not about the heels, it's just what you can show.

    • Well, I'm lucky I can say to not always having to rely on high heels then lol

  • Yes. You wear a tank and jeans. You bring a bikini and you wear heels

    • Yup that's exactly it

  • yeah it's because during castings they will also have you walk to see how you walk on the runway.
