Plus Size Clothing Model Caroline Worsley on Love and Life
Plus size clothing model Caroline Worsley recently shared her experiences of modeling and her outlook on life in general in an interview on Plus Size Models Unite. Caroline grew up in a conservative town in Northern Virginia and attended college in New York City. She became hooked on the diversity and vibrancy of New York and after college she began to work as a fit model. Fit models can be any size as long as they conform to the look the client needs. She says she really liked the idea of traveling, working and getting paid in clothes. While at a party in Miami she was approached by a booker who suggested she try out plus size clothing modeling. In her interview she said she’s never heard of plus size modeling before and decided to check it out, signed with his agency and has been modeling plus sizes ever since.
Caroline says women and girls who aspire to be models should do it. Her advice is to smile, be confident and on time to each go-see. Clients will remember a model that is upbeat and professional. She also advises any would be models to be clean, neat and dress in simple clothes. This way a client can tell what type of body you have and how their plus size clothing will fit on you. Keep your makeup and hair simple; clients want to see how you look naturally. She also says to remember that modeling is not like acting. You’re there to make the clothes look good, but you still need to be confident and pleasant. Keep learning about the business and build your contacts; always network with the crew including hairstylists, photographers and make up artists working on plus size clothing shoots. All of these people can help you to learn and advance your career.
As for health and beauty, Caroline says she watches what she eats. She tries to eat healthy natural food and stays out of the sun. She relates that the sun is the one thing that will age you quickly. When she goes to the beach she wears a large hat, 100 SPF sunscreen and sunglasses. She said she notices a lot of difference in her skin than in skin of other plus size clothing models who don’t worry about sun exposure. When asked what makes her uniquely beautiful she said it is her “fierce determination”. She said she feels everyone who is kind to others is beautiful and there is no one set standard for beauty. She shares her adventures, experiences and philosophy in her blog, EverythingCaroline. To quote Caroline, “The best thing you can do for yourself is to choose to live your life with people who you love.” The is great advice for aspiring plus size clothing models and everyone.
