Part 7: Plus Model Etiquette

The Fashion business has been around since forever and as with any business there are rules and guidelines that have been put in place to ensure that the BUSINESS runs smoothly.  The plus model industry is no different; in addition to the rules and guidelines, there is a proper way to carry yourself on and off the set if you wish to continue to work in this industry and climb higher in your goals.  I am pretty sure that I've covered some of these things in previous articles but of course some subjects bear repeating because apparently many of you just aren't "getting" it or the information just isn't getting this month's column is a gentle "reminder" from

The Runway Diva to you...

On Set Behavior...Attitude, Attitude, Attitude -
To put it nicely; don't bring it with you.  Don't believe every thing that you see on television, and trust me when I tell you that "Divaesque" behavior will not get you repeat business with clients.  Show up with a pleasant attitude, rested, ready, willing and able to get to work immediately.  Keep in mind that you are the "product" on set and the client already has a "vision" for how they want their product portrayed.  That means that you may have to swallow your pride on many occasions.....

Don't complain about or attempt to alter the makeup provided by the makeup artist.  When you are on someone else's dime and time there will be times when you will not like the makeup.  There will be times when you won't like the clothing.  There will be times when you won't like the hair either.  It is important for you to know that it has very little to do with you and most of the time the production staff has already been instructed by the client before hand regarding the "look" that is needed for the shot and it usually has nothing to do with your personal tastes.

Rule of thumb:  Keep your personal opinions to yourself unless they are asked for by the client or producers.  If you don't like your hair, makeup or clothing; Reach deep down inside of yourself and let your acting skills take over and become whoever and what ever character the client needs or wants you to be.  THAT'S how you get repeat business from clients, by delivering the shot like a pro.  "Act" like a model get the job done and then let it go. Remember that it's business; it's not personal.
