Victoria’s Secret is one of the largest undergarment and lingerie retailers in the world. That’s to be expected when you have such sultry, stunning, splurge- friendly items to offer women of varying sizes. Because of this, their annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is highly sought after and is one of the most competitive modelling gigs in the industry.
You may ask what are the requirements for such a wanted job? Well, this article is going to give you a few common characteristics of all of the models that you should work to achieve before jumping to audition for Victoria’s Secret’s next show.
Extensive Previous Modelling Experience
You do not simply roll out of bed and walk into a Victoria’s Secret casting call. That takes a long line of credible work history and some bomb dot com references on your resume. To even step foot in the audition room, you should already have at least a page long resume and vivid, merited visual portfolio.
This would entail lots of work to even build yourself up to that level of expertise. Therefore, it is always suggested that you start modelling as young as you possibly can so as to acquire the best resume, references and portfolio possible. If you notice, each and every one of the models who have ever graced that runway have had quite a few prior opportunities in the lime light through previous avenues!
A Workable Face
As the saying goes, beauty is surely in the eye of the beholder. Therefore, it would be very unwise to have a requirement of being deemed “pretty” to qualify for a spot on their line up.
This is because beauty is indeed subjective, so likely you are not under the same judgement as the models before you. However, it is fair to ask that you have a workable face. This means that you have a face that has the potential for makeup to apply very well so that photos are at their maximum potential.
Also, this means that you have unique features that draw the attention of viewers. For example, if you are someone who has hazel eyes that could be seen as a unique feature because the most common eye color is brown. Or if you are someone with very good bone structure and very sharp face definition, this is a unique feature because it makes you stand out from the average Sally.
A Healthy Physique
AS you can see, all of the Victoria’s Secret models are in their tip top physical condition. Each and every one of these bronze goddesses are healthy and happy at their small vicinity to perfection. This requires a strong will power and vice dedication.
It has been said by a few of the Victoria’s Secret models that their fatal figures are the result of extremely strict diets and a rigorous gym regimen of cardio exercise and weight lifting that occurs for an average of 3 to 4 hours a day, up to 6 days a week. Their diets are said to consist of a mere 1200 calories a day, containing a strategic mix of fruits veggies and low fat proteins such as fish and bird.
That being said, if you are not someone who has the stamina to keep up an air tight regimen such as that then this is certainly not for you. If you would like to see a visual demonstration on some of their frequented exercises, you can check out Victoria’s Secret’s YouTube channel.
After reviewing these common characteristics of all of the Victoria’s Secret Angels, you can decide whether or not this is something that you want to pursue in your career. Whether or not you choose to continue, enjoy your modeling days while they last because soon they may be over.
