How To Become A Model Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)
1.How can I submit modeling photos and apply to the modeling agency in order to become a Reinvented Entertainment MODEL?
You may submit your modeling pictures, statistics, and your contact information (including the best phone number to reach you) by e-mail. Via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Do the modeling pictures have to be professional?
No, professional modeling photographs are not necessary in order to apply to the Reinvented Entertainment AGENCY to become a Reinvented Entertainment MODEL. However, this does not mean that you can submit blurry modeling images or bad quality modeling images. Instead, use the best camera that you have available (borrow from a friend or relative if necessary) and ask a family member or close friend to take your modeling pictures for you based on the Reinvented Entertainment AGENCY requirements as explained in the “Submit Photos” section of our modeling agency website.
- What is Reinvented Entertainment MODELS looking for?
We are looking for natural beauty, which means minimal makeup. Modeling photos should reflect your ability to be versatile and have different looks. Remember to include all measurements (as explained in the “Submit Photos” section of our modeling agency website) when submitting your modeling photos and please do not forget to include the best phone number where we can reach you along with the rest of your contact information (city, state, country, etc.).
“I dream of becoming a Reinvented Entertainment MODEL and modeling for the world’s most prestigious fashion brands. It’s all I’ve ever wanted. It’s the only thing that matters.” **
** It’s the only thing that matters in addition to getting an education, ending world hunger, curing all diseases, and world peace.
- In addition to including my modeling photos, statistics, and contact information (including the best phone number where I can be reached by the modeling agency) are there any additional things that I can do to increase my chances of becoming a Reinvented Entertainment?
Yes. Including a brief 2 or 3 paragraph summary of who you are and why you would like to become a Reinvented Entertainment MODEL shows the agency that you are serious about modeling and becoming a successful fashion model.
- I am only 5’2″ in height. Can I apply to become a Reinvented Entertainment MODEL?
The minimum recommended height in order to become a Reinvented Entertainment MODEL is 5’4″ in height (without heels). That said, it is important to note that over 90% of Reinvented Entertainment MODELS recruited over the past few years that were 18 years old or older have been either 5’6″ or 5’11” in height. Even if you do not meet our minimum height requirements we still encourage you to apply because the modeling agency can sometimes recommend qualified candidates to any of our partner modeling agencies located around the world. The agency can also make exceptions to the minimum height requirements if we believe that you are the world’s next supermodel.
- Are there any fees involved in order to become a Reinvented Entertainment MODEL?
The agency does not charge any admission fees or any other types of fees in order to become a Reinvented Entertainment MODEL and model for the agency.
- I don’t understand. If you do not charge any fees to become a Reinvented Entertainment MODEL and join your prestigious modeling agency, then how do you make any money?
Unlike modeling schools who will probably charge you thousands of dollars for the privilege of joining their school, our modeling agency does not charge any admission fees. Instead, our modeling agency will earn a percentage of your earnings that result from your modeling career. This forces us to be extremely selective when recruiting models because the more successful you become and the more money you make, the more successful the agency will become and the more money the agency will make. Thus, both of our interests are aligned.
This is also one of the reasons why modeling schools will take almost anyone (anyone with cash) while world class modeling agencies will have extremely high admission requirements for models. In other words, once you become a Reinvented Entertainment MODEL we will invest valuable time and/or money in you in order to try to make you as successful as possible. It is also important to keep in mind that there are never any guarantees that you will become a very successful fashion model, so in a way our modeling agency is taking a risk with you because we will have no way of recovering the time and/or money spent on you if you do not become a successful fashion model.
- How long does Reinvented Entertainment MODELS generally take on average in reviewing modeling applications from models applying to the modeling agency?
The modeling agency receives tens of thousands of modeling applications from female model applicants from around the world. Thus, because of the extremely large number of model applicants the modeling agency requires from a few weeks to up to review the application. This amount of time is necessary because we need to look at your modeling application in the context
- Does Reinvented Entertainment MODELS have an Instagram account?
Yes. You may follow us on Instagram at instagram.com/reinvented_entertainment/
- I am a fashion model looking for a global mother agency and was wondering if Reinvented Entertainment MODELS is also a mother agency?
Yes, Reinvented Entertainment MODELS is also a mother agency. Being a mother agency for our beautiful fashion models allows our fashion modeling agency to efficiently cover certain fashion markets where we might not have a presence as strong as we would like compared to other fashion markets. Thus, many of our top fashion models have the advantage of not only being represented by our agency as mother agency, but by agents from many of the world’s largest and most prestigious modeling agencies (the model’s commission is simply shared between our modeling agency and our partner modeling agencies).
Being a mother agency basically means that many of the world’s largest and most prestigious fashion modeling agencies contact our fashion modeling agency and ask our modeling agency for permission so that they may represent our beautiful fashion models as part of their official model rosters for a certain amount of time in specific fashion cities.
In other words, being your mother agency allows us to guide you throughout your fashion modeling career, to book you with our fashion clients around the world, and to sign you with additional modeling agencies both in the United States and in foreign countries for additional global representation. Pretty cool.
- My mom and grandma do not want me to model in lingerie. I know that (https://www.reinvented-ent.com) receives massive traffic, but do I really have to model for lingerie brands?
The answer is that lingerie modeling is not required with our agency.
Unlike other top modeling agencies, we do not allow nudity and we encourage our fashion models to NOT consider lingerie modeling until they have been modeling for at least a few years.
Lingerie modeling requires an almost perfect, beautiful, flawless body or a perfect, beautiful, flawless body (that is a lot of adjectives), extreme body confidence, and extensive modeling experience, and probably less than 1/3 of our models do lingerie modeling. In fact, most of our lingerie models started lingerie modeling with their previous modeling agencies.
- I want to model abroad but I am a fairly new fashion model and do not have much money for travel expenses such as my flight tickets, foreign apartment rent, etc. Do I have to pay for those expenses when modeling in foreign countries?
The answer is yes and no. If you visited the above links (previous question), you would already know that you would eventually need to pay for those travel expenses, but generally the foreign agencies will initially pay for those expenses on your behalf (flight tickets, apartment rent, etc.). Once you start modeling abroad, the foreign modeling agencies (our partner modeling agencies) will reimburse themselves for advancing you the money which will be taken out of your foreign modeling paychecks. Remember that foreign modeling agencies are not charities. They want you to make money so that they can make money since they earn a percentage of your fashion modeling earnings. In other words, being lazy and not wanting to work as a fashion model so that you can go shopping in Paris or Milan with your other model friends will not cut it with the foreign modeling agencies, and it is expected that when not working on fashion modeling jobs you will be constantly going to modeling auditions. That said, a good modeling contract from your mother agency will protect you in case you do not earn enough money modeling abroad so that your account does not go negative. Many mother agency contracts for experienced fashion models might also include a minimum dollar amount guarantee that a fashion model will make while fashion modeling in foreign countries.
If you are a minor, at least one parent or legal guardian will be required to travel with you, but do not expect the foreign modeling agencies to pay for the travel expenses of your father, mother, or legal guardian. Instead, a good recommendation for teenage fashion models is for them to ask their parents to stop giving them an allowance and to stop giving them money for shopping at the mall, and instead to save that money for their flight tickets so that they can accompany you abroad for a few days or a few weeks.
- I was wondering how much money fashion models make per day?
We have a special section on model earnings at: https://www.reinvented-ent.com
If the booking is done through our agency, the minimum starting rate for a United States booking (foreign modeling rates are different) is generally between €100 and €150 per hour per model depending on the model’s experience and type of booking, but many experienced models have higher rates.
These minimum modeling rates exclude New York City which has higher modeling rates (€250 per hour for new fashion models and €500 to €1,000 per hour at a minimum for experienced fashion models), and there are always exceptions to these rates if we believe that doing a booking is in the best interest of our models (for example, an editorial booking for a prestigious fashion magazine even if it pays less than our minimum rates). In addition, lingerie bookings are at time and a half meaning that the minimum rate is €225 per hour per model with a four hour minimum because we do not like new fashion models without any experience to do lingerie bookings (€750 to €1,500 per hour per model with a four hour minimum in New York City).
However, please keep in mind that our fashion models actually receive less because we subtract the 20% agency fee from their paychecks. Bummer.
- Please tell me more about modeling contracts for advertising campaigns for fashion clients in New York, London, Paris, and Milan Italy for top fashion models and supermodels.
Top models that have modeling experience at the international level, have an excellent modeling portfolio (modeling book), have been featured in major fashion magazines such as Vogue and Elle, and that have modeled in the fashion capitals of the world (New York, London, Paris, and Milan Italy) can easily earn over €10,000.00 United States dollars per day. It is also important to note that these numbers are just starting dollar amounts for negotiating the modeling contracts for prestigious advertising campaigns (this negotiation is done between your mother agency, the modeling agency in New York or Europe, and the New York or European fashion client). We like to call them high powered modeling contract negotiations.
- I was wondering how much money supermodels make per year?
We have a special section on supermodel earnings (they are collectively called the Money Girls) at: https://www.reinvented-ent.com
- My mom says that since I am still in high school that I should only focus on school at this time. I really love fashion modeling so I was wondering if my mom is right. What should I do?
Your mom is a wise woman. That said, we can accommodate your middle school or high school schedule so that you only work on select weekends, quarterly breaks, winter break, and the 3 summer months each year. Starting early will give you a huge head start in your fashion modeling career versus other fashion models that start late during their college years.
- My mom says that since I am still in college that I should only focus on school at this time and model after I graduate from college. I really love fashion modeling so I was wondering if my mom is right. What should I do?
Unfortunately, your mom is probably not as wise (as it relates to fashion modeling) as when you were in middle school or high school. While the agency considers it extremely important for you to continue your college education, at this stage in your life, fashion modeling should be your number one priority. Your college degree will protect you once your looks eventually start to fade in your later years, but at this age you are at your prime in terms of your youth, looks, and beauty. In college, you can take classes two or even three times a week and model on your days off.
In fact, whenever we have had problems with our fashion models in the past (they were not really problems but more like disagreements) it was because of scheduling. We really do have an issue with fashion models that say that their number one priority is fashion modeling and then they decide to take classes five days a week. In college, at our agency, modeling just on weekends will not cut it and will probably just upset your agent or agents.
