At 19, he had his first son, Robert Pattinson Jr., with his longtime partner, Emily Ratajkowski. Since then, the actor has kept busy, with both his acting and modeling careers. Still, he’s never strayed from the fashion world, appearing in editorials for Vogue and Marie Claire. In 2017, he signed a deal with Blumhouse to be the male face of the line’s Venice collection. So, it’s clear that, even in his 20s, Pattinson has never completely left the world of fashion. Now, let’s look at how to become a teen model step by step.
Whether you’re pursuing a modeling career or not, you need to start by finding the right agent. If you don’t have a lot of experience, look for an agency that specializes in new talent.

A reputable agency will be able to secure you work in high-profile campaigns, which in turn, will make you more attractive to big-name brands. In the meantime, be sure to work hard, but don’t forget to have some fun along the way.
Now, you need to make sure that you’re educated about the modeling world. It’s no secret that being a teen model can be quite the glamorous life, but it requires a certain set of skills. First off, you need to be able to walk the runway. Even if you don’t have a lot of experience, take dance lessons or art classes, which can help you improve your modeling skill set. In addition to this, be sure to study the fashion industry. What is the current mode of thinking when it comes to fashion? How does the industry itself work? What are the latest trends and tricks? Being able to answer these questions well will help you fit in with the fashion world, as well as secure you work in high-profile fashion campaigns. Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to education. Make sure to study the history of fashion and stylishness, as well as read up on a variety of fashion trends and insights. The more you know, the more you’ll be able to contribute to the conversation, as well as secure work in high-profile campaigns.
Being a teen model means you’ll be changing your wardrobe often. Depending on the campaign you’re working on, you might be required to wear a variety of attire. For instance, if you’re portraying a fashion icon, you might be asked to model a collection of previous suits and creative use of accessories. Still, as a general rule, you’ll need to look neat and tidy.
As for the suits, make sure to invest in good quality garments. You’ll be wearing these for a variety of events and appearances, so take your time choosing the right fit and colors. Another piece of advice: be selective about the suits you choose. If you want to secure work, focus on selling your slim fits and mini dresses. Make sure to mix and match your colors, as this will achieve a more versatile look. Mix light and dark pieces, as this will help you pop against a white background or vice versa. It’s also worth pointing out that white is still the color of cool for boys and girls worldwide.
Now, the makeup on your lips is of great importance. If you’re not used to wearing makeup, make sure to start slowly. Take your time becoming comfortable with the process. Wear lip stick lightly and only where necessary. If you’re asked to wear a full face of makeup to an appearance, you’ll need to get used to wearing it. If this is a brand you’re unfamiliar with, make sure to research them before you buy their products. This way, you’ll know what to expect. Once you’re confident using lipstick and makeup products, experiment with different combinations. One of the greatest lipstick hacks is to use a lip gloss over a full face of makeup. This way, you’ll achieve an outstanding finish, not only on your lips, but also across your face.
Your hair is another area you’ll need to focus on if you want to model. It’s important to find a hair styling agent that can create a variety of looks for you. If you’re not comfortable wearing your hair in a ponytail or a bunch of bobby poles, find a hair dresser who can help you create the look you want. In addition to this, make sure to bob up on the fabric on your coat and shirts. If this is a brand you’re unfamiliar with, look for the emblem or logo on your jacket or shirt. This will help you identify the brand and create a connection with the product.
In short, being a teen model is no easy task. It requires a lot of dedication and work ethic. Still, the benefits of a career in fashion and commerce are well worth it. Not only will you be able to model for high-profile companies and appearances, but you’ll also be able to earn a good living. If this is a path you’re considering, make sure to follow these tips from the professionals, so you can be confident in your decisions and secure work opportunities.
