There shouldn't be a 'comfort level' when posing topless. It shouldn't be a thought. And if it is you know part of the job is cases like this. Now, if it will endanger your life that's a different story.

I think your comfort level is one the most important thing.

If you look terribly scared, you should tell the photographer you don't want to do it. Even if you did it, terror will be all over your eyes and face, and it adds nothing to the picture.

If you know you'll feel guilty about doing it, then don't. You won't get killed. Getting one less job wont hurt at all.

'before they were celebs' is a completely different story.

Perhaps not the asian COUNTRY but some asians in the HIGH FASHION industry.

If Versace asks a model she'll be in a buff but on her is a Versace coat that kind of 'nudity' is what i am referring to.

If they found out that they went nude before they were celebs, that would be worse.

I think what alot of people are not understanding is when you want to become a model like these girls at IMG, DNA, Select, Women etc.... is that when you sign that contract you are WILLING TO DO ANYTHING the jobs entails--- that is your comfort level.

Well, I disagree. Especially since she's flaming the thread.

I dont see how shes flaming the thread. Can you please explain why?

Basically all she said was true, when you become a model, the job may entail having to get topless. If its something youre uncomfortable with it just may not be the occupation for you. Sure you dont have to do it, but it could be something that hinders your career in the end.

If youre a model and dont like getting naked, you can continue modelling or if youre that uncomfortable with it, you can just not model.

This is all opinion here. Shes not being rude to anyone, shes only stating her opinion.

i was a model for 10 years. mainly paris/tokyo/milan. and there are different types of girls that handle things different ways. some shmooze photographers, and go out alot and work it in that way. and some work knowing that they are worth something, that their beauty and you have value and that the fashion world needs you. you have a lot of control in a way. in tokyo for example i was asked by my agency right away- do i do lingerie, topless, cigarettes or fur. and i said no to all of them. and i worked a lot. you can to a certain extent create your own rules and know your own limits. sometimes you get pressured but you just keep saying no if you really mean it.

if people are pushing you really hard to do something you don't want to do, that is a whole other side to the "fashion" industry that isn't really business, it's bullshit.

it is surprising too what kind of respect you can get by saying no.

^ Vintage Addict, can you really say no to doing fur ? I was wondering about that for quite a while now... I mean how does it work ? Do the clients warn you there will be fur stuff at the shoot beforehand or is that being sorted once you arrive for the shoot ? Thanks for sharing, it's always a good thing for learn about things from the industry's insider.

things are probably different everywhere but i was asked by my agency ahead of time. if it is an issue for you bring it up with your agency when you start with them if you can.

but tell them if you can, and you might lose work over it. but if it is important to you it might be a trade you are willing to make.

i think you have to be aware of how much leverage you have or don't have. if they will just ignore you if you say stuff like that you might want to keep that in mind. if you are getting enough work and don't mind losing some then go for it.

there was one time there was fur at a shoot and i just went with it. they had always been good to me and someone had just made a mistake. bringing it up once you are at the job is pretty bad form i would think.
