Interested in Modeling? It’s Not Too Late!

Kirin Chrisitanson and Deborah Boland - women of all ages and sizes

Top model Kirin Christianson and I at a conference.

If you’ve always wanted to be a model, but got busy along the way on this journey called life,  it’s not too late to fulfill your modeling dream. Yes, really!!!

I have learned that there are thousands of modeling opportunities out there for women of all ages and sizes. You just have to pinpoint what type of model you should be (there are dozens of different types) and then tap into all the opportunities available.

That’s where a friend of mine, Kirin Christianson (The Red Haute Mama), comes in. Kirin and I know each other from many internet conferences we have attended. She’s beautiful gal, and her story is fascinating.

With a lot of hard work and determination, Kirin went from an insecure, gangly, red-headed girl to a sexy bombshell, a beauty pageant winner, business person and top model.  She modeled for many years and at 37 she was signed to the prestigious FORD/Robert Black Agency in Arizona where she lives. Now at 40 Kirin has a glamorous and very busy life modeling, doing charity work, inspiring other women through her website and raising her lovely family. She is living the dream!

The most exciting part of Kirin’s story is that this sweet, generous gal is ready to help YOU fulfill your dream to be a model. Kristin has recorded three free information packed preview videos to educate you on the modeling business that teach you how to break into this very competitive field.

The preview videos are called:

  • Are you Model Material – What Jobs can you book?
  • Your modeling Questions Answered
  • How to Book jobs before you sign with an agency ( and stay safe) 

After watching these videos, let me tell you, they are jam-packed full of fantastic information that will help you break into the modeling field no matter what your age or stage of life. I’m impressed!


If you want to be a 40+ model then join Kirin’s Bombshell Bootcamp Online Modeling Academy  But before you do, make sure to watch  her 3 FREE videos about modeling to learn whether modeling is right for you, to answer your questions about the biz, and to help you determine what type of model you should aim to be based on your unique look.

Do I sound excited? I am! That’s because so many of you have written asking me for help and up until now, I had no place to send you. This is what you have been looking for!

Go ahead and  watch Kirin’s 3 FREE preview videos on How to Be a Model. They are worth viewing even if you don’t want to model, but just want to look like one.

Have fun! This could be a major turning point in your life!

    Would love to try 40+ modeling. I’m 40 now.
    I had the opportunity to do the Hawaiian tropic pageants and loved it. Any suggestions would be great.

  2. Elisha Espinoza says:

    Won a $30k modeling scholarship to the top modeling agency in Dallas at the tender age of 16. Completed that and was to leave for New York for Fashion Week two weeks after to meet and sign with agents in Milan and chickened out due to the negative respones and hatred by the women in my school. Now at age 40, I could care less what people think. I’m 6foot2 and ready to start all over but don’t no where to begin. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! E.

    Good evening,

    I enjoyed watching the first video and I am really interested as being a model had been and is my passion since I was a young girl and now I am 45 years of age but I have been told the most they give me is in early 30’s and even less at times. I am 5 foot and my weight varies from 107-10. I am people person type with a warm personality ;) which you’ll always see a smile and positive energy. It has been a dream, a passion, a fantasy to be a model. This is what I love to do.

    Thank you so much for this opportunity. I was only able to see one of the videos and can’t locate the other two.

    Please let me know how to get started.

    I live in Los Angeles, Ca.

    Love and light,
    Haleh Houshim

    Hi everyone, I am 57 and have always wanted to compete in a modeling contest. I am 5’6″ and a good weight. I do not look my age but am proud of it and what I have accomplished in life and still continuing to do.

  10. Jessica Mpofu says:

    I am turning 41 in July and ever since I have known myself, nobody ever believes my age. I have people forever commenting that i look as if I’m in mid 20s and as of lately I have developed so much love for modelling ’cause I always think, if I have the body and the look, why not.

    The agencies that i have tried to approach have not assisted me in any way but I take it, one must always expect these things before they could actually achive their dream.I would really and dearly love to be a fashion Magazine and now getting a bit confused as to how I can get my dream right.

  11. Very cool! People always tell me I should be modeling. I am 44. I live in TN not so much to do here as NY or LA.
    Anyway, It’s good to hear others are out there doing this

  12. I just had my 49th birthday, and all I think about is modeling.
    I have always wanted to model, I did a little in my 20’s and I
    also did pageants. I loved every minute of it. I would love to
    be able to fulfill this dream.
    Will you be having any of your 40+Modeling contests on the future?
    Can you also advise me on where I should go to help me pursue my
    Your advise would be very much appreciative.

    • Hi Lisa,
      I have seen lots of women get into modeling late in life, but if you want to get the inside scoop on how to do it, there is no better book than, How to Break Into Modeling for Under $20.00, by Judy Goss.
      Just click here or go to our site and look under Style books.
      The author Judy Goss is a former Ford Model and knows the behind the scene tips in how to get started and not get ripped off by common scams that are lurking out there!
      Good luck and keep me posted on your journey!

    I am nearly 49 years old and have been told on many occasions that I look younger than my years, and I watch all the programs relating to glamourous women in their fourties and would like to know how I pursue my dream to model. I would love the chance to be able to walk the cat walk and model the deigner clothes that would be absolutely tremendous.

    I am going to become a grandmother later on this year and this made me realise that I feel as though I have lost my identity as a women and have lived in the role of mother for many years and would very much like to have the chance to regain my confidence.

    I would be great if you could pont me in the right direction I would be very grateful
