Not only female models are supposed to be their body and to adapt it to the needs of the brands they books; also men should sometimes transformations.
Fashionista popped backstage at New York Fashion Week and explained some of the male models the question “have you ever had to change something about your appearance for a job”.
“My agent told me to my teeth whitening and the right to convert. That procedure lasted for eight months. Luckily I had no major renovation works are undergoing.”
“In 2013, I had my head kaalscheren”
“I am regularly scouted, but each time they are the best, that I have a somewhat broader and more muscled. I am still very slim but I was really skinny. That was a shock… To be lean for the fashion industry.”
“Modeling has really helped me with my self-confidence because they are me never have asked something to my appearance to change.”

“Something to myself to change? I wish that I could! I want all months my hair cut but my agent will not allow it: he finds that it is part of my ‘look’.”
“This industry is very body focused. So I often get to hear that I am more muscled and wider should be, so I eat a lot of pizza and I go to the gym.”
“In the beginning of my career, I could not slim enough, but today everything is back to broad shoulders, the muscles. Confusing.”
“The strangest request I got was to lose weight on my lower back. That so has someone actually said to me! “
