Ever since I began Fabulous after 40 I’ve had many emails from women who’ve always dreamed of being a model but never tried, or who accidentally fell into modeling since turning 40.
Once such reader is Cheryl , 45, who was actually approached by the North American Modeling Association to do some shots. Here is Cheryl looking fab. She says she works at, it and does a lot of jogging, weights, rollerblading, snowboarding, tennis etc. Inspiring isn’t she?
If you have a passion to model, or would just like the experience of being a model, then meet world-famous model and businesswoman Clarissa Burt who I have become good friends with.
Clarissa Burt’s journey to entrepreneur, TV/Video producer, public speaker, author, writer, inventor, award-Winning actress and entertainer has all the makings of a best selling novel.
At 18, Clarissa Burt was a top model with the Wilhelmina modeling agency in Manhattan. Soon after she moved to Milan and quickly began appearing on hundreds of magazine covers such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, and Cosmopolitan.
She also starred on most of the major runway shows in Milan, Paris, New York, and Japan. This led to work for cosmetic houses Revlon, Dior, and Carita, Helena Rubenstein and her selection as the worldwide “Face” for Orlane Cosmetics.
She went on to have a hugely successful movie, TV and radio career in Italy and even developed a line of her own beauty/fashion accessories. After 25 years as an International Star and a promoter of the betterment of women Clarissa returned to America to settle in Arizona.
Now another friend of mine, top model Kirin Christianson is doing something to help women over 40 fulfill their dream. She as started an online modeling academy that will put you where you want to be.
