Weekly fashion videos: how to walk like a model
Thursday 29 July 2010
Ever wondered what it is exactly that makes models look so irresistible on the runway? Well, apart from having won in the genes lottery, it is mostly their determined walk and confident attitude. Learn how to copy their stride with these videos.
VideoJug gives you helpful tips on posture and the ideal movement of your legs, arms, and hips in order to strut like a runway model - but better keep those end-of-catwalk postures to yourself, they might look slightly out of place on the sidewalk.
Once you have these basics sorted, decide on what personality you want to channel. Do you feel sexy, rebellious, powerful...?
Powerful: do the 'Clydesdale:' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpE5ixhaPeI
Rebellious: turn to the 'Grunge:' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzyNESycy3E
Sexy: choose the 'Crossover:' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AauUshLt0s
Never underestimate the effect of your face to communicate your self-confidence. Don't look sad, bored, or nervous - keep your eyebrows up and eyes focused in order to look interested and be interesting.
One of the major modeling agencies, Ford Models, has put together a workshop in three parts: watch their models being professionally coached for the runway, and take home the tips that work for you, ranging from posture to facial expressions and rhythm. There are even some tricks that will help you look taller than you are.
See what a professional coach's runway modeling tips look like on 'real' women.
