    jprichva saidWell, as I understand it, the first thing an aspiring model needs is a reliable source for cocaine.

    Someone's late to the party.
    I find this hard to believe as well Scruffypuff. Maybe it's a "real people" of Laguna Beach fashion show for people of Laguna Beach.

    This has nothing to do with the OP but why do so many guys here who claim to model don't look anything like models?

    If you want to know what a D & G male model look like, here is the standard, my favorite. Noah Mills for D & G. This is what I meant by exotic/dark looking not in a Latin way, he's fucking hot and so sensual !!! icon_cool.gif SEX SELLS, D & G knows this.

    If D&G is your first gig you don't need advice. icon_biggrin.gif

    Seriously - just keep your mouth shut on set, listen, and take direction without comment .... and offer to help anyone who needs it. I've found I get rehired because I'm try to make everyone else's job easy.... the prima donna's only last as long as their looks do.

    Good luck bud.

    swimmer8671 saidSo I have a tremendous opportunity to model for D&G but the catch is this will be my first time modeling.



    Define "tremendous opportunity to model for D&G"? Trust me when I tell you that "The Catch" may be more than that it's your first time modeling. How did this "opportunity" come about -- through an agent...or through some two-bit wannabe photographer posing as a "talent scout"?

    Many models you see in person don't look like models upfront, however add lights, make up and stylists and it is amazing what can happen to an average person. But, that being said and having been a model when I was way younger, there is lots of great advice here and would be surprised if this was legit. D&G goes thru tons of models to come up with their look and without knowing the process the OP went thru, find it hard to believe "he was discovered overnight". But if true, Congrats!!!

    However, I will share, a childhood friend was the original Cool Water cologne ad based on a pic a private photographer took of him in Cancun. Another story, but the photographer made out way better than my friend.

    Did an agency approach you? If so, they'll put the money into training you for the gig. If D&G is wanting you, this would ring in big bucks for an agency, and you as well! Best advice...Have a THICK SKIN!!! I was given a card from a Ford agent, when I was 19, and was torn a new a**hole on the call back. Oh, Mrs. Foster's words to me... You're a handsome guy, but your nose is too big for your angles, as well as your ears. I think you could maybe get more "commercial" work. And those famous last words..."You're not the look we're going for at the moment" Suck It! Mrs. Foster, and Ford Models!!! I'm almost finnished with my Master's in Business, and yea my ears and nose are still too big for my angles, u honkey ass motherfu*kers!!!! ah ha ha ha lolicon_biggrin.gif

    I used to model in HS for commercial ads but quit, got kinda kinda fat, and became a cook instead because getting gigs like D&G take a lot of time and a lot of scrutiny. No experience, no portfolio? Good luck and don't fall for making any payments prior to a shoot that they should be paying YOU for.

    A Ford model scout once approached me on RJ's adult chat section and said if I wired him some money to his account and showed my taint for him on camera for a few minutes I would be on the cover of GQ. This was over a year ago.

    Think he is pulling me leg????

    1). Walk confidently and fluidly, with a serious but not mean face.

    2). Turn

    3). Return and do not fall.

    You think so? But he seemed so genuine. He even let me perform a number I did for Annie a few years ago (I lost the part, still mad), and said that I had a future in Broadway. It was kinda odd that he wanted me to sing "Tomorrow, Tomorrow" in the nude, but he said it allowed me to become 'one with the audience'.....

    Well if you performed a show tune in the nude and didn't get a call back. I just hope he didn't record it without your consent...

    It's ok, jmusc, I am still finishing casting Annie. But if you want to submit a few more nude photos and send me $250, I'm sure we can find you a part back stage. And yeah, Tomorrow was not your song.

    But I said he could record it if he pinky swore to never allow anyone but casting directors to see it. Am I being naive?
