How about stance guys vs function guys. I know only a small percentage of people know what I'm talking about but would be cool to see anyway.

The fact that the models who’re actually talented are getting paid less than the ig models is a joke.

I feel like a lot of Instagram models post a lot of pictures in their underwear or showing their boobs and it ends up being more about them showing off their bodies even if it is to share body positivity or whatever, runway models don’t have to show their cleavage in all their pictures because they’re doing it for the fashion and they have real skill.

Run way model: yeah, I’m being a good role model for young girls, I decided a size 0 was enough and didn’t even starve myself down to 00! Body positivity all the way!!!

🙄😒Say what you want being an instargram model is as easy as breathing oxygen. 🤦‍♀️And definitely not the same as being an actual professional model.

Looked at all their respective Instagrams.
- Mariam looks nothing like she does in her photos. She feeds on insecurities to sell her lies. She spoke the most and was the most defensive.
-Their lifestyles are not sustainable and relies on Fast Fashion and crazy trends
- literally will work for free clothes rather than money to pay rent
- their IGs promote their actual lifestyles and personalities
- promote classic and luxury brands
- they don't try hard
I honestly would love to see these IG models try and get fashion/runway models jobs. Or a photoshoot with the most minimum photoshop

Tbh, both jobs are very respectable. No doubt both need hardwork. It's just that runway/pro models ain't gonna earn money without the runway while ig models have more opportunity & have more freedom. Ig models take photos and if ppl like it, then boom!! Either they earn money or popularity. Runway models ain't really earning without gig so they need to work on their lifestyle, their body, their walk, fashion etc. in order to attract potential sponsors/gigs. Sometimes they ain't getting something even after studying to become pro models.

I had the highest confidence when I used to be a model. I was ready for casting blah blah. Then the client crush you down. Its fine. Do it again. Then crush you even deeper. It was a very difficult cycle to break especially in this cut throat industry. I leave. It wasnt good for my vulnerable mental health then. 4 years later, I've come back. Same industry but with a different mind set of self worth. Just like what the model said, if you dont like me, cool, deuces. Move on! If you know your worth, it shouldn't affect you.

the only types of people ig influencers could influence are those who are insecure and those who're obsessed with bobs and vagene

I mean IG modeling and runway modeling are both weird, superficial occupations. But what’s crazy is that the IG models probably make more money than the runway models.

As a 16 year old girl , personally , runway models never had a bad influence on me. I grew up watching ANTP and looking at runway models , I grew up looking at naturally beautiful , plastic surgery free models. It’s the instagram models that made my confidence drop with unrealistic and un-human looking people

I just went to Mariam's instagram, and oh my goodness she looks far far faaaar different from her photos. Also, no way is she a size 6. Probably a large 10 or small 12, but that's it.

I feel like it's contradictory for the curvy model to say she wouldn't edit out her flaws on Instagram, but it's okay for a magazine. Why should your standards change because it's a magazine? That's like saying you should love your natural hair everywhere you want, but when you go in the workplace you need to straighten your hair or make it look more "presentable". If you're going to promote body positivity it shouldn't matter if it's for Instagram or a magazine. I understand models have little to no control over who edits their photos in magazines, but at the end of the day, if you're gonna say "my cellulite is natural and beautiful," that should apply everywhere. That's my opinion on that 🤷🏽‍♀️

You can tell by the first moment they met each other, they were judging
you cannot put insta model on your CV it's not a real job don't insult the professional models by claiming you're a real model that like a person who cooks Sunday dinners at home snd claims they're a professional chef

Runway models are just such elites in this video and the Instagram models are just like "hey we are real too" and it's like nah stfu sit down
C D - Day ago
In my opinion, I think instagram models are a dime a dozen, all they need is good lighting and boom free clothes and a little paycheck. Runway models? Need to have the perfect walk, brand themselves to the biggest designer brands, be seen all across the globe by everyday and higher socioeconomic people, end up in magazines fashion shows billboards, be healthy for that sample size, find an agency that truly stands for them, know facial angles and expressions that most people can’t do on accident, and of course 10000% confidence and hard work since it’s easier to be rejected and harder to find a gig.

Runway models > IG models
OneManShow - Day ago
Wait a minute! The IG all talk about how there beauty at every size and race but then they say everyone cannot do what they do...isn't that insinuating that only certain people can be IG model...I'm sorry that's really contradicting...

*Alizee, Gary, Chantelle and Jessica*
*I generally enjoyed hearing from them and believe that they not only made their points well but actively listened to the others. Some good conversation here and I can see some more in the future.*
*I wish them well for the days ahead*

Models won. Period.
You know, I’m not really very into modeling but I do appreciate it. Alizee made me want to learn more about it. We share a lot of viewpoints on modeling, the truth she spoke and her personality really stuck out. I have a basic understanding on modeling I believe and I don’t want to be that close-minded person on modeling so I’m glad I saw this video so I can share that wise thinking yet into my own life

To any girl who might have a smaller chest or a smaller bum, YOU ARE PERFECT. Do not let anyone’s insecurity spread on to you.

"Instagram models" aren't real models. They aren't attractive either. That's why they're caked on with makeup, photoshop, and filters. Ugly, insecure, and pathetic.

Honestly the worst thing about these insta „models“ is that all they have is their sexuality not their aura or unique look like real models they literally just show their ass/boobs etc

these runway models are pulling punches ... they could smoke those instagrammers where they stand. Also the question is can anyone do instagram modeling, answer is yes, just like can anyone become an entrepreneur. Anyone can try it and anyone with enough drive can succeed, but to be a runway model not everyone can even get in the door cause some of it is basically .. the genetic lottery. the runway models being really nice 😁

i'm pro plastic surgery. It doesn't better your self-esteem, but it might help you in your journey to love and accept yourself better. Do it if you think it can help.

triplerosez - 2 days ago
The runway models seem so much more real and eloquent because they are more in touch with themselves and the reality of their situation. They acknowledge their genetic advantage but also sense that it cant be everything through their struggles. The IG models have to constantly keep up with the image that they so painstakingly create and curate, like being confident/positive/liked, they have gotten used to being so concerned about how they seem and are lost behind this facade.
