Home grown models

Models these days get a lot of hate for what they do. Although it's a tough business they have a lot of negative stereotypes that follow them. Here's a bit about some of the British-born models that I love.

Charlotte Wiggins(18)
Born in Liverpool England. Charlotte never aspired to be a model. She grew up more on the sporty side. She was scouted and begged to join the agency called Select. She aspires to walk for designers like Chanel. Charlotte also walked her first Fashion Month this year, she claimed she was not expecting it to be as busy or as tiring as it was.


Cara Delevingne(21)

Born in London England. Cara is mostly known for her defined eyebrows. She has done work as a Victoria Secret model and and can be found all over ads in the September edition of Vogue as well as many other fashion magazines. She's very eccentric and fun-loving. She's a kind of role model for a lot of girls to be themselves.

Jourdan Dunn (23)
Born in London England. Jourdan is well known for her long, slender legs and beautiful eyes. In 2008 Jourdan broke a decade long streak for Prada and was the first black woman in 10 years to walk the runway for them which has been an inspiration for the lack of coloured runway models in the insdustry. She's modeled for Burberry, Victoria Secret, Aldo, Tommy Hilfigure and many more.

Informartion from:


  1. I like you choice of models. I have always seen models as women who force them selves to be society expectations of beauty and the they run after modeling agencies in order to get the gig, i never thought that they could be scouted. I was really impressed with Jourdan Dunn, she seems like and extraordinary model with the determination to be different.

  2. I was surprised to hear that Charlotte Wiggins never made an attempt to be a model. I thought it was something that took a lot of effort to get in to. Maybe she was just lucky!

  3. Models are essentially selling their I think they get what they sign up for. The fact that it's wrong, doesn't make it untrue. They have negative stereotypes attached to them because most models fit those stereotype. They portray unrealistic ideals of beauty by starving themselves and altering their appearance. What should be changed is our ideals and standards of beauty. All women should be accepted as beautiful and individual in their own way, and they should all be represented in modelling.
    All that being said, I have a respect for women who can attain a professional modelling career, while still being healthy and respecting their values.
