What does it mean to be a 'world model'?
An interesting thing about the modeling industry is the fact that it allows many model-hopefuls, be it in almost any part of world, to become models. Modeling as a profession is highly desired and more and more young aspiring models are dreaming of becoming the next world models.
With the growth of modeling as a profession as any other, modeling has become much more accessible than ever before. Now models from all over the world are competing on the same level. The once almost unattainable profession is now at the very fingertips of anyone who wants it badly enough.
World models, the successful models who have made it big, are those who keep showing their staying power year after year. A great example of a world model is one who has made a name for herself/himself aside from just being a pretty face walking down the runway. World models are models who do their very best to stand out from other models. I can think of a list of top models worthy of being called 'world models' and it's exactly these models that new model-hopefuls look up to and who they see as their role models. These include the likes of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, and the list goes on.
World models show and set an example to new models who are starting their careers. The world is becoming more united and more accessible, no doubt due to continuous developments in technology. And in turn, more and more young men and women are given the opportunity to become part of the exciting world of modeling.
