The Models’ Guide to Modeling: What the Models Wish They Knew Before They Made It Big

Over the past few years the number of working models appears to have quadrupled. Models like Karlie Kloss and Cara Delevingne are landing more high-profile campaigns than ever, and all at the ripe age of 22, while others continue to strut down the runway well into their forties. It’s a glamorous life- being a supermodel- but before they were sporting couture and sipping champagne with top designers, they were beginners. With a few polaroids in their books and a pair of heels in their bags, they did their best to navigate the highs and lows of the fashion and beauty business in order to make it big.

Inspired by their successful climbs up the fashion ladder, we spent New York Fashion Week catching up with some of the industry’s most prolific catwalkers to get a first-hand account of what it’s really like to be a young model working in fashion and the lessons they learned along the way.  What do Caroline Trentini, Maggie Rizer, and Coco Rocha wish they knew about modeling when they first started out?  Find out in the slideshow below!

UPDATE: Karlie Kloss Joins the L’Oreal Family!

UPDATE: Rumors spread back in March that Karlie Kloss was the latest model to join the L’Oreal Paris family.  While the beauty giant didn’t confirm the news at the time, our guts told us that the all-American super was a sure shoe-in.  Turns out, we were right!

In addition to her successful commercial campaigns with Nike and Victoria’s Secret, Karlie is now the newest face of L’Oreal Paris— a gig that describes as a dream come true. “It’s a dream,” says Karlie in an interview with Style.com. “I’ve had the privilege of working for the past seven years, and if I’ m totally honest, toward  this.”  And with good reason: A beauty deal — especially one with a global brand as big as L’Oreal — is about as high-profile and lucrative as modeling jobs get.

There’s no word yet on when Karlie’s first campaign for the brand will drop.  In the meantime, the supermodel is already busy fulfilling her spokesmodel duties by sharing her beauty must-haves — she swears by L’oreal’s Volume Filler Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner.

See why Karlie is ‘worth it’ in her first L’Oreal video after the jump!
