The Art of Being a Model ( offtopic )

Maybe the very first form of art was beuty itself. Not beauty as a concept but beauty as something natural and of daily occurence.So, why not consider modelling a form of art. It respects any aesthetics principles, it delights the senses and it's governed by laws unknown to man yet. It's like music only without drums...or lyrics...or autotune...

Being beautiful is difficult and requires a lot of common sense. Replacing Coke with couch grass juice is the easy part. What's hard is making the body communicate and express itself. A model should always find the equilibrium between obedience and vulgarity , between a natural and a fake smile l. And, since art is not for everyone , a model should hardly interfere with the desiring public which can often be malicious and misogynist. It's like Karolina Kurkova( ex Victoria's Secret Angel) once said : A girl who is interested in becoming a model must first accept the fact that she is the product. She must be ready to deal with a lot of rejection. But hey, rejecting a model is only a sign of a narrow mind...and it's hardly a problem since Van Gogh himself was rejected back in his days...
