REGULAR PEOPLE ARE BOOKING MORE AND MORE!!

Botox-ed beauties no longer seem to be the favourites with Hollywood, with casting agents now looking for actors who look like "normal people".

Francene Selkirk, a 15-year casting director who has filled roles for TV shows and movies, said many directors in the entertainment industry are turning away from silicone-filled, artificial bodies unless needed as a specific character trait.I would have to say that 99 percent of commercial directors don't want it," ABC News quoted Selkirk as saying.

"The 'natural look' is back in, and looking 'plastically perfect' in every way may not work to an actor's advantage anymore," she said.

Selkirk's pet peeve when reviewing actors' head shots: 'Face work', especially lip injections.

She encourages young actresses not to think they have to go under the knife to get casted.

"I'm very anti-surgery. I think that the times have changed and I think the look is natural, people want natural," she said.

"It really changes the shape of your lips and ... it means 'alien' to me, your face doesn't move correctly," she added.

Big-screen casting director Danny Roth, who has several projects under his belt, said plastic surgery has invaded Hollywood to the point that it's becoming more difficult to find actors to play certain ages.

"There's kind of a blur between 40 and 60, like, where are those women?" he asked.

"The women over 40 are trying really hard to stay down there until they are doing the grandmother roles," he added. (ANI)

FIT MODELS - WHAT SIZES ARE NEEDED TO BE A FITTING MODEL?

Every time I meet models that are interested in FITTING, I realize how much confusion surrounds the industry. For the small group that actually FIT for a living, these models know that maintaining their size is key to a FIT MODELS success.
Most models think that you need to be 5'10 and a size 0 or 2, but actually for FITTING the sizing is quite different. Many of the designers are more focused on FIT to sell to the general public, and since the general public is not 5'10 and wearing a size 0 , the truth remains that for the rest of us we need to find clothing that actually FITS!
So, that is why the FIT sizes range depending on the designer and the customer they are trying to sell their product to. So, for a general guideline, the FIT SIZES go from juniors, to missy, to contemporary and plus sizes.
In the missy contemporary sizes the range falls between 4, 6, and 8 - sometimes 10 - 12 will also be a size for a more missy FIT.
For juniors the range can go from 5, 7, and 9 and again plus sizes will also FIT JUNIORS.
So, as you can see, there is an array of sizes, and it really depends on the manufacturer and what their design team deems the perfect size.
Peak Models & Talent has been placing FIT MODELS with top companies since 1997, booking only the most reliable and respected FIT MODELS in the industry.
If you feel that everything FITS you when you shop, and your size does not fluctuate, you might be a candidate to FIT clothing for a living!
For information on how you can be a FIT model or if you are already a model but have never really thought about FITTING, this might be one of the best assignments you can book, if you are interested in making steady income!

DISNEY BOOKS WITH PEAK MODELS!

Being a source for models for Disney is a great honor! For those of you that are familiar, Disney does not book with just any agencies, in fact they are very particular in whom they work with.
For new models it is important that you know to go to reputable agencies when looking for somene to work with. There are a lot of little agencies, but a new trendy agency with pretty faces means nothing if the models are not booking.
Here is Rolana who books Disney with Peak Models & Talent on a regular basis!
So I guess you could say that we are proud to work with the happiest place on earth!

YOUNG MODELS

If you are a model that is just starting out in the industry, it is imperative that you find the right resources and information so that you do not get taken advantage of by people that claim to know the business.
As an agent, I see more models come through my door that have been lied to by photographers that just wanted to charge them to take photos. Most of the girls that came in were told that the photos they took were all they needed... NOT TRUE.
The agency is the only one who can tell you what types of photos you actually need.
So, be careful when just starting out, for up to date information find reliable sources on how to break into the industry.
I have can tell you this much, since I have been in the business for as long as I can remember, I would suggest that you check out www.modelingsecretsrevealed.com
This is my answer to all the questions new and pro models have to succeed.
To your prosperity!
