Models are some of the most insecure people I've ever met. They're constantly being told they're not good enough. You've really got to practice loving yourself.
Many billboards and magazine ads have resorted to showing isolated body parts rather than full-body portraits of models using or wearing products. This style of photography, known in the industry as abstract representation, allows the viewer to see himself in the advertisement, rather than the model.
When a man wants to relax, he will slob out and really relax. Or he will pursue a hobby - anything from building models to watching sport.
No matter how old and glorious the models, sad indeed is the woman who sees fashion as a means of self-expression rather than an agent of social control.
I think all races are represented in America much more than in many other places, but it's also nice to remind people about that ethnic mix. I would like to see more black models and women from different ethnic backgrounds, but I also think that when you are casting, you just choose the most beautiful girl you can find.
Diane von Furstenberg
I have never understood models. I find it really hard to find beauty in that or to discover beauty because the beauty was so obvious.
I'm learning as I go. I don't know everything. I never had anybody to look at, nobody ever taught me, and where I'm from I didn't have any famous role models.
I think that my biggest role models are people that have maybe struggled for a while and then finally gotten to their destination.
Whole communities are growing up without fathers or male role models. Bringing up a family in the best of circumstances is not easy. To try to do it by placing the entire burden on women - 91% of single-parent families in Britain are headed by the mother, according to census data - is practically absurd and morally indefensible.
Life, it is true, can be grasped in all its confused futility merely by opening one's eyes and sitting passively, a spectator on the stands of history - but to understand the social processes and conflicts, the interplay between individual and group, even the physicality of human experience, we have need of small-scale models.
Sometimes I feel like the best role models and the people you should look up to most are the people who make mistakes because they show you how to overcome them and walk through that mistake with integrity and grace.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
Role models really matter. It's hard to imagine yourself as something you don't see.
I'd love there to be more larger models, but it's just not going to happen. Designers love to design for slim girls.
I think most models fear growing old, but from a tender age I had always chosen to play someone grown up. I am slowly but surely catching up with the people that I have spent the last decade and a half trying to portray.
Auto executives have shunned the limits-of-growth issues and concentrated nearly all their energies on the next quarter's sales and next year's models.
How many girls, models or not, are secure about their bodies? I think I'm more realistic about what to expect of myself now. I also have a lot of other things than modeling going on in my life that I'm proud of.
I think that we need women role models everywhere. I think that it's really hard to imagine yourself as something that you don't see.
My role models are people who can do things; I say to myself, 'I wish I could do that.'
Queen Rania of Jordan
The older people that one admires seem to be fearless. They go right out into the world. It's astounding. Maybe they can't see or they can't hear, but they walk out into the street and take life as it comes. They're models of courage, in a strange way.
You're not working with models, you're working with real women who have, like, anatomy. Models do not have anatomy.
In the past, it weighed on me because nobody in my family is gay. I had no role models so I had to find my own way.
In New York City, you can walk down the street and see a girl in a trench who looks equally as cool as a girl wearing Lululemon. It's like you're watching models. You see a little of everything right by you.
I still believe there is a need to open up search and it will come eventually. It is very important to challenge the current models.
Fashion doesn't look good only on models; it can look good on different people of different ages and different body shapes.
When I see my kids totally into their Legos, it brings me back to the days I was hanging out and playing with my monster models. It brings me there in a second.
John F. Kennedy
