Top 10 Fashion Models In The World
In order to promote your fashion brand internationally, you need charming faces and models. To advertise a variety of products, models work with brands, artists, photographers, and fashion designers. The clothes, hairstyles, and appearance of models are crafted by stylists and makeup artists, but they are ultimately responsible for how they appear in front of the camera.
According to statistics from the United States, fashion models earn an average of $112,685 per year or $54.18 per hour. For a model, 5’9″-6′” is a normal height, 32″-36″ is a normal bust size, 22″-26″ is a normal waist size, and 33″-35″ is a normal hip size. The majority of women are not able to meet these standards, which is why fashion models generally get the most money and the most work.
Numerous smaller and niche fashion industries make up the fashion industry. Retail/online stores, global brands, fashion magazines, and design houses are what people generally think of when they think of fashion. In the manufacture of clothes, there are also other craftspeople and industries.
This list highlights 10 of the world’s most successful fashion models, compiled from our research.
