I can’t tell you the number of readers who email me asking if I know how they can get into modeling now they are over 40. It has been a lifelong dream for many and turning 40 sparks something inside that says; this is your last chance. Just do it!
Unfortunately, 40+ models are few and far between in the media and advertising although things are getting a little better. I’m not really sure of any agencies who recruit models this age so if you know of any let me know.
My best advice if you want to model over 40 is to start your own Instagram account. Post photos daily of you in different outfits and tag the brands of the clothes you are wearing.
Follow other 40+ bloggers. Like, comment and soon you will be getting likes and comments too.
Once you grow your following by being genuine and consistent and tagging brands, brands will take notice and start direct messaging you to wear their clothes. Once you have done, that and your following grows you can start charging to wear their clothes.
This can all happen slowly or fast depending on how much work you put into it. The great thing is that the fashion world has opened up to Influencers. You no longer have to be a certain height, weight, look, or AGE to make it.
Get cracking and get on Instagram. I’ll be watching for you, Supermodel!
