“Modeling is really silent acting.”
What do you think of models? I never really thought too much about the impact of a good model, but a good model can truly transform a picture. I’ve gone to forums where people are really critical of models if they aren’t quite expressive enough in their pictures. Or they knock certain models for being famous because of their social or family connections (you can guess who!) But if you think of modeling as silent acting, as model Arizona Muse notes, then you realize that they really have to do more than just pose and look pretty.
I came across this editorial aptly titled “Models” which displayed different aspects and classic poses of modeling via Vogue Italia July 2016. This editorial seems to have a throwback vibe and makes me recall classic and simple poses. I love the Marilyn vibe of the opening shot and the sultry, almost sad look of the model here. But it is true – sometimes I don’t get anything when I look at a picture. Then sometimes I look at an editorial, like a recent favorite one from Kate Moss, and I sense the model’s energy and mood – full of vitality and happiness. I only realize how much impact a model can effect a picture when I take a deeper look. So I’ll still enjoy pictures of models in beautiful clothes, but I’ll also appreciate how a model can totally make a picture truly gorgeous,
Have a lovely week!
