So I have been searching the Lands High and Low for petite models, advice, events, auditions, and all things little...
Let me tell you it has been an adventure :
It seems that runway shows who state that height doesn't matter are well- ill informing us small ones (4'11- 5'5) they mean all can apply who are 5'6 and taller. I am intrigued by this fine print which my eyes do not seem to see.
But none the less we must tread on-HEAD Strong- we are the new commodity even if they do not see the impending revolution of the petite elites...It is happening, take for instance the NEXT TOP MODEL PETITE SERIES, and the many models and entertainers who are now emerging short but powerful such as Kim Kardashian who is a grand total of only 5 feet 3 inches...it happening...it is our TIME! (Smile)
So my advice is this:
WALK IN THE DOOR CONFIDENT, YOU HAVE THIS AND NO ONE IS PRETTIER, MORE UNIQUE, OR AS READY FOR THIS MOMENT THAN YOU! IF YOU ARE NERVOUS (WHICH YOU SURELY ARE) DO NOT SHOW IT, BREATHE, SMILE AND ELOQUENTLY INTRODUCE YOURSELF TO ALL. DO NOT DISCUSS YOUR PROFESSIONALISM OR LACK OF. ALWAYS EMMIT A SENSE OF CONFIDENCE AND YET STAY HUMBLE (NO ONE LIKES SOMEONE WHO IS A DIVA...ATLEAST NOT UNTIL YOU GET SOME STATUS)
So keep walking, practicing, audition for every runway show- You will get many no's but finally one will see in you that spark and you will light that show on fire!!!!!
