No, the only thing I might be confusing is the brand, though it still was a big one, anyway. That was ages ago, long before Julie was even old enough to start modeling, I think 1996 or something like that. And, by the way, I though Julie was from Switzerland.

5'6/5'7 is like the official version of her height that the agencies give. i mean, seriously, there's no way that they're gonna say she's 5'4/5. most of the time agencies lie about height and body measurements anyway. makes you wonder who's lying when you see the discrepancies in the stats that different agencies give for the same model...

OK. I got the ad wrong. It wasn't Guess Melanie Thierry did, it was Morgan.

Hannah Ware from Select Modeling Agency is 5'5

I can't find a picture to post but if you check out SelectModels.com she is listed.

I swear I think height is becoming less of an issue. It's all about being original and unique my brothas and sistas

Not really. Height is 50% in getting into the industry. (even more) Even if you have a stunning face, but you are short, there are no guarantee you gonna get big or get jobs for more than 2 years. Because viewers tend to remember the face. If you have stunning face, of course you are gonna have cosmetic, perfume ads and such. But those can only use you once. After that, people might get sick of seeing the same face all the time or else. So if you are short, your best chance is to become a commercial model. And a warning, when you are short, clothes that being put on you gonna be mostly skimpy. You are also expected to pose nude more often!

Wow, plenty of things I've never heard before... Like the posing naked part, for instance... Could it be that the shorter girls are more likely to agree to things cause they feel inadequate and those guys are taking advantage of it ?

And what matters is what exactly you imply by "short". I mean, one thing is being 5'4-5'5 short and the other is 5'7-5'8 short...

But, actually, you know what ? Height being 50% of getting into the industry doesn't sound too bad... In fact, it sounds promising... Cause I always thought it was rather the only way anyone would ever be considered.

If you are shorter than 5'6, then you should expect to be asked to wear really short, revealing babydoll top and pose naked. It's nothing personal! It's not like you look like a porn star, but because of your height. Tall girl will appear tall even with a bundle of clothes. But for a short one, it's best to minimalize the clothes put on her, showing her body will MAKE her taller and leaner. So short model usually has to be thinner than a tall one to archieve the same effect on photo. Not to mention kick-*** body tone!
