Successful models not on social media
Lately the fashion world is filled with models using social media(instagram, snapchat, etc.) to better advance their careers. A successful model these days is judged more so by the number of followers he/she has than by their talent.
Are there any successful models left that are not on social media?

I can only think of Edita Vilkeviciute.

I can also think of Daria Werbowy, but she is selective when it comes to work. I still consider her successful though.

Guinevere Van Seenus calls herself a "social media mute." Kristen McMenamy, Shalom Harlow, Natasa Vojnovic, Amanda Wallsh, Stella Tennant, and Annne Catherine Lacroix don't appear to have a social media presence.

Unfortunately it seems only older models who have been around for at least a decade can get away with it. Julia Nobis is an exception. I think it makes someone a lot more interesting when they keep their life to themselves.

I'm happy to find a topic like this ! I'm getting tired of all that social media attention for models The number of followers has never meant talent ! I really prefer "quiet" but gifted girls Many young catwalkers have accounts but are not omnipresent like Kendall or Gigi.

Daria W. has an account although is not your "usual" model account. No duck faces nor 89769060708 selfies a day.

Yeah, I can only think of Edita and Julia. And the older models but I don't think they can be considered into this group as they are more of "cult models" and do very selective work.

Yup, I don't recall any social media accounts of Freja Beha except for her fan accounts...

Kristen and Shalom have got the accounts.

Helena Christensen refuses to use any social media including Insta.

Edita's tumblr says thatshe doesn thave twitter or Instagram does that mean that she owns that particular tumblr? How does Helena promote her photography without any social media?

I think it either was edita/agent that confirmed it that she doesn't do social media .Helena is a supermodel with a large network and she must have an agent that is getting her these bookings.
