There's such a wide range in male "ideal" no? I mean obviously there's a wide range in female modelling as well.. but say.. Daria can do Prada, Marc, Dolce, Chanel, Dior all in one season.. whereas NO male models can say the same beause the shows casts totally different "ideals".

well,imho

good height,

handsome..like Tyson Ballou is good-looking, i think

somebody who's got a personality

has his own style and has a good taste about fashion,dressing...

not terrible on the runway!
maybe it's just me, but i think most male models' catwalk is just
ugly and boring

good height and well trained but not over the top athletic body is a must..

personality is huge (even more than with girl models)
male models can be very succesful if they show their brains during the shooting, there is nothing more boring from a beautiful, tall guy with empty eyes and vacant/cow eyes expression
and believe me, there are far too many of those in this business

who said male supermodels dont exist?
super models = 80's so..
Marcus and Cameron where total gods (in their time)

What's more popular or looked for by agencies in these days for male models, long hair or short? If long, curly or straight?
Thanks in advance.

imo a good male model is not necessary very tall ( we can see right now that shortie merged on the male model industry ) they can be great as well....Well i think that being tall is not everything and moreover if you're well built. "Sensitive" guy are quite famous right now... i think that it's an equilibrium.

Lots of people seem to be talking about the way shorter models are getting into modelling. So, is there now a height that's too tall to be a (male) model. I've thought about modelling, but i'm somewhere between 6foot2inches and 6foot3inches (the technical skill involved in tape measuring is beyond both me and my friends - that's as accurate as it gets, but i'm definitely somewhere between the two). Is that too tall???

I'm 5'10" (I might have got the "'s confused I tend to do that), and 109 lbs I'm really interested in modeling and I have been for the past year or two. The problem is I dont know how to start. I know that most people my age whether they are a guy or a girl, dont try to do anything that they want to do for the rest of their lives yet. I'm only 15 and I dont have any pictures yet but if anyone can give me advise I'd much rather them do it on a personal level

You can catch me on aim at DxJ dUcKie

PS: I like ducks if you couldnt tell <3

well in theory. you're too tall if you're beyond 6"2 but you know Roc Montandon is really taller than 6'2 and if there're shorties there're must be tallies i know that the word doesn't exist

the younger you start the better it will be. Try maybe a local agency. Don't go on Big agency before and well try to make some photo well 5'10 is not so bad there's a guy in the model industry Oliver Cheshire who is only 5'9 at 18 yrs old or something like this you might grow up a few more so you can still try.

When I get some money to pay for a portfolio theres a photographer that everyone sais is pretty good around here, his name is Gene Ho his website is www.geneho.com and it looks pretty promising. One question though what is a good height for a male model? My brother is 6'4" and is 21 so I might grow a little bit more, but what is the usual heigh for most male models?

Not always. I've noticed Male models are more "skinny" then built these days, you don't see as many hard abs as you used to.
