    Early years

    Mod­el­ling as a pro­fes­sion was first es­tab­lished in 1853 by Charles Fred­er­ick Worth, the "fa­ther of haute cou­ture", when he asked his wife, Marie Ver­net Worth, to model the clothes he designed. The term "house model" was coined to de­scribe this type of work. Even­tu­ally, this be­came com­mon prac­tice for Parisian fash­ion houses. There were no stan­dard phys­i­cal mea­sure­ment re­quire­ments for a model, and most de­sign­ers would use women of vary­ing sizes to demon­strate va­r...

    The 1960s and the beginning of the industry

    In the 1960s, the mod­el­ling world began to es­tab­lish mod­el­ling agen­cies. Through­out Eu­rope, sec­re­tar­ial ser­vices acted as mod­els' agents charg­ing them weekly rates for their mes­sages and book­ings. For the most part, mod­els were re­spon­si­ble for their own billing. In Ger­many, agents were not al­lowed to work for a per­cent­age of a per­son's earn­ings, so re­ferred to them­selves as sec­re­taries. With the ex­cep­tion of a few mod­els trav­el­ling to Paris or New York, tra...

    The 1970s and 1980s

    The in­no­va­tions of the 1960s flowed into the 1970s fash­ion scene. As a re­sult of model in­dus­try as­so­ci­a­tions and standards, model agen­cies be­came more busi­ness minded, and more thought went into a model's pro­mo­tional ma­te­ri­als. By this time, agen­cies were start­ing to pay for a model's publicity. In the early 1970s, Scan­di­navia had many tall, leggy, blonde-haired, blue-eyed mod­els and not enough clients. It was dur­ing this time that Ford Mod­els pi­o­neered scouting. T...

    Glamour models

    Glam­our mod­el­ling fo­cuses on sex­u­al­ity and thus gen­eral re­quire­ments are often un­clear, being de­pen­dent more on each in­di­vid­ual case. Glam­our mod­els can be any size or shape. There is no in­dus­try stan­dard for glam­our mod­el­ling and it varies greatly by coun­try. For the most part, glam­our mod­els are lim­ited to mod­el­ling in cal­en­dars, men's mag­a­zines, such as Play­boy, bikini mod­el­ling, lin­gerie mod­el­ling, fetish mod­el­ling, music videos, and extra work in...

    Alternative models

    An al­ter­na­tive model is any model who does not fit into the con­ven­tional model types and may in­clude punk, goth, fetish, and tat­tooed mod­els or mod­els with dis­tinc­tive at­trib­utes. This type of mod­el­ing is usu­ally a cross be­tween glam­our mod­el­ing and art mod­el­ing. Pub­lish­ers such as Go­liath Books in Ger­many in­tro­duced al­ter­na­tive mod­els and punk pho­tog­ra­phy to larger au­di­ences. Billi Gor­don, then known as Wilbert An­thony Gor­don, was[when?]the top greet­i...

    Parts models

    Some mod­els are em­ployed for their body parts. For ex­am­ple, hand mod­els may be used to pro­mote prod­ucts held in the hand and nail-re­lated prod­ucts. (e.g. rings, other jew­elry or nail pol­ish). They are fre­quently part of tele­vi­sion commercials.Many parts mod­els have ex­cep­tion­ally at­trac­tive body parts, but there is also de­mand for un­at­trac­tive or un­usual look­ing body parts for par­tic­u­lar cam­paigns. Hands are the most in-de­mand body parts. Feet mod­els are also in...
