This week you are going to talk to a model agency. You may wonder about what you are going to wear to the interview.
While preparing for this very important career opportunity, keep in mind that since this may be your one and only shot at this, you want to look and feel your very best on this day.
Exactly What to Wear to a Model Agency Interview
If you are a female, a pair of form-fitting jeans or casual slacks with a top that brings out your skin tone would be appropriate. With this outfit, you should wear 2-3 inch heel shoes.
A nice pair of jeans or khakis with either a form-fitted t-shirt or button-up shirt is an ideal choice for males. For footwear, sneakers or boots are a good choice.
Invaluable Tips on What Not to Wear
Ladies, never wear see through clothing or tight fitting sweaters to a model agency interview.
Men, don’t show up wearing a business suit and dress shoes.
Whether you’re male or female, stay away from distracting patterns, logos and brand names on clothing you choose to wear to this very important meeting.
How Much Makeup Should I Wear?
Since makeup is such a big issue to many females and some of you will not go out in public without it, here are a few tips for wearing makeup to a model agency interview.
Most agencies like to see your natural look and prefer you wear very little or no makeup at all when they see you the first time.
If you feel like you must wear some, put on just a little mascara and a stroke of natural looking eye shadow. Maybe, just a little blush to bring your cheeks. If major blemishes are a problem, use a little concealer to hide them.
Smile Smile Smile
Remember to get plenty of rest the night before so you can be assured of staying alert during your model agency interview. Otherwise, what you wear won’t make much difference!
Most important is to show your confidence and let them see your natural smile.
