More Than Just a Pretty Face

Gigi and Bella Hadid. You probably know them as the faces of fashion houses and the faces on magazine covers. The ones who jet set around the world to glamorous photoshoots and post Instagram stories of themselves with teddy bear face filters.

But, they are more than that.

Why is it that when someone is naturally inclined towards playing the piano or building a model rocket, they are applauded for it, but when someone has a talent for modeling, they are dismissed as just a pretty face?

Let us tell you, modeling is a helluva lot more work than you think it is. Itโ€™s standing out in the freezing cold for hours to get the perfect shot. Itโ€™s putting on some hip hop music and practicing different expressions in the mirror for hours on end.

Itโ€™s essentially creating and embodying an entire character in just one still frame.

Gigi and Bella are some of the best at it, and we frequently turn to them for both modeling and fashion inspiration (can you guess who was inspired by whom?).

Sure, having a pretty face helps, but not everyone can do it.

There are plenty of beautiful people out there who donโ€™t know the first thing about modeling.

But we do know a few things about it, and it is still a daily challenge for us. If you donโ€™t believe us, just come shoot with us sometime! Or think back to the last time you had photos done and recall that the way you held and moved your body naturally did not look natural on camera.

Modeling is an art, and itโ€™s a skill. And itโ€™s one that deserves your respect.

xoxo, S & H
