For a while there, somewhere in the 2000, the model was replaced by the celebrity on the cover of major magazines. Actresses and singers like Nicole Kidman were given beauty campaigns and front covers. The model was left with couture shows and editorials found inside the magazine.
These days, you can smell it in the air that it’s the age of the model again. An age that alludes to another glorious decade — the '90s. A decade where supermodels were revered and placed on magazine covers, billboards, and just about any teenage boy’s room.
Models have a voice now too. That’s thanks to social media like Instagram which helps them not only to connect with fans but it also enables them to share the things they care about. Most importantly, charity.
Sure, yeh, but these girls also know how to use Instagram to make us jealous. Come on, admit it. Your life is great and fulfilling, blah blah, of course, it is. It doesn’t mean theirs doesn’t look appealing at all!
Just by following some of the Victoria’s Secret models is enough to make us go "nehh" about our own life. The girls are always capturing the most glamorous moments. Even at the gym things look good on their Instagram!
Two of the angels, Sara Sampaio and Elsa Hosk, recently talked to Elite Daily about a number of things. One of the things they shared was how they take the perfect Instagram shot. It’s not what you think.
It’s not because they take photos of themselves in beautiful places either. Sure, they’re captured on stunning beaches and incredible houses. It’s not why people flood their comments section on Instagram.
Sampaio told Elite Daily, “The lighting makes all the difference! But I think what's the most important really is being authentic. Show a little bit of who you are, but without giving too much, cause [some things] are supposed to be private.”
Hosk talks about the no nos of an elaborate picture too. She said, “I think you can feel when a photo is staged or authentic. I think people really respond to photos that feel authentic, like when it's a snapshot out of your real life, when it's a really cool image.”
