I'm currently 14, going to be 15 in about a month and a half. I have had no experience whatsoever in modeling! I don't know how to get started. Well, it's not that I don't know how to get started, it's just that my PARENTS don't want me to be a model. They say academics come first and that modeling is bad, and all that crap. And I'm looking at Tyra Banks, Kate Upton and Kate Moss and they all started at around 14. I don't know how to convince my parents to let me model! When is it too late to start?
When is it too late to start modeling?

You're looking to be a Fashion model, which is where the big money and fame is found, but it's hypercompetitive and has high physical requirements that most people simply can't meet. Assuming you could, you'd need to start immediately, as the average fashion model's career happens between around 16-24 years old, and you still need some time to learn the trade. Sure, the ultra-rare super-model may be able to extend her career into her late 20s, but that's the exception to the rule.

It's never too late to be a model. People who value academics higher than other things are just snobs.
Here are some things to consider:
Do you have an agent?
How tall are you?
Do you have a modelling portfolio?
Have you ever been scouted?
Why do you think you have what it takes to be a *top* supermodel?
What is you ethnical background?
Are you hardworking and determined?
Do you have good manners?
Do you have good skin?
Are you fat?1

Never. I currently know models that are in their 40's and 50's that look very dam hot. Just make sure you can afford it, modeling isn't cheap.0
Isn't modeling only part time though. Like, don't you have to actually have a job as well, a full time job. You can't just model your way through life, especially when you lose your looks. Hell, Adriana and Alessandra announced they're retiring from the business. What are they going to do now. They can't just sit at home the rest of their life. Their husband will get pissed1

You have to be tall and skinny to become succesful and popular model. And most models have something special, Cara Delevigne has thick eyebrows. And you say you don't wanna be like a regular model no one has heard of, well thats how most models stay. Its a big competition. Every one of them wants to be like Tyra but 90% can never achieve that. Face the facts before you start. Its harsh and you will constantly get cririsism about your looks and weight and so on. Its not glamorous job, its fucking hard and uncomfortable.0
Its never to late to do something that you love, if you want to model, then model. Do what you love, and love with you do. I've always wanted to be a model ever since I was little.0
once you LOOK 25+ unless you're already on top.
you'll be just fine if you have to wait until you're 18.1
never too late but better to start early0
If you find the right agency and your willing to work hard , I see no reason why 14 is to old x0
do you know heidi klum one of Victoria's secret top angel she is 41 and she is loved by everyone (mostly)0
It's never too late, it just gets harder with age. You can get into teen modeling if that is what you are interested in. Or, you can wait until you are legally responsible for yourself, if your parents are strict. Just put together a portfolio and work on your faces, poses and the way you walk.0
