It's possible to start modelling at an older age, MariaCarla Boscono began modelling when she was 19, according to Elle UK.

I think 14 is way too young, but unfortunately today's new models seem to be getting younger and younger.

Carolyn Murphy - 19 (bthere.tv)

I think 19 is a good age to start! but for sure, one should finish school first!

I just think it's better to start soon so you can reap the benifits sooner. Keep in mind, unless you are QUITE established by 26, your career is d-e-a-d!

I think it totally depends on the girl.

I don't think a girl should start as young as 13 WITHOUT her parent around. I think around the ages of 16/17 is about the time the parents should stop tagging along and let the girl go at it on her own. Its really best that way. When one's parents are around, they think too much. Not saying that its not bad to think, but the girl needs to find herself.. blah blah blah.

I started when I was 14. And my mom stopped coming down to the city with me when I was 15. Though, if my sister was in the same situation, my mom would never let her go down by herself.

You can't generalize that all girls should start at one age and they'll be safest physically and/or psychologically. But parents should definately be involved until a certain point.

I was first approached about modeling when I was 9. I obviously wouldn't be working for the same clients as I am now. But there is a market for 9 year old girls...

The reason 13 to 18 year old girls are not on Americas next model is because it's against the shows rules. wonder why? No one is going to butt heads with the fashion industry on the age issue...too much money and to much clout.

Though I seem keen on the young model (I'm trying hard to BE one!), there are cases in which some girls just look like babies.

Looks like baby...


Not so much...



That's fourteen year old Camila on the right, with Jeisa
