We are so proud of our reader Andrea, who was inspired by our teleseminar with Judy Gross, author of Break Into Modeling for Under $20 to pursue her lifelong dream of modeling. Well here she is, gracing the covers of a Land’s End catalog, in all her fabulous after 40 glory!
We think Andrea looks great, and is such an inspiration for women who want to start their career in modeling, but think it may be too late. We are always excited to see real women, as opposed to super tall, super skinny, teenage string beans modeling clothes meant for the masses. The beauty industry seems to be starting to embrace mature models, as evidenced by the new TV Land reality show She’s Got The Look, which features women over 35 attempting to break into the fashion world a la America’s Next Top Model.
We encourage any woman with a dream to go after it! Here are a couple of photos of our reader, Lisa, who has always wanted to be a model. Isn’t she gorgeous? For a 44-year-old single mother of a college grad, she doesn’t look a day older than 25! We wish you the best of luck!
