      Modelling is Hard: Menswear Edition

      Modelling is Hard. It’s hard for everyone, of course: all of those poor models who work so hard, only to be told that they need to eat a sandwich, or get some “curves”, or some other kind of bodysnark. It’s hard for them all, but modelling is particularly hard for…

      Model Makeover: Saving Models from Crimes of Fashion

      Modelling is hard. We know this from the many years we’ve spent patrolling the world of fashion. No one knows what those poor models suffer in the name of fashion: well, no one except other models, obviously. Forced to wear ugly outfits, to pose in ridiculous ways, and to keep…

      Want to amaze and impress your friends by posing exactly like a fashion model? Let The Fashion Police show you how! In part one of our series we present Model Pose #1: The Hair Twirl, as demonstrated by our old friends, the ASOS models! “Oh, gosh, is that a camera?…

      Strange Sweaters from Bless

      “Gosh!” we thought, “It’s not like our old friends at Bless to make an item of clothing that looks, well, ordinary. We’re more used to seeing hairy shoes, strange, off-the-shoulder suit jackets, and who could forget the Ra Multispaghetti dress? But these… these look like regular turtleneck sweaters!” Sigh. At least…

      Modelling is Hard: Apocalypse Now

      At first glance, we thought this was another gig for our old friend, the Bearded Model. Let us just quickly refresh your memory, in case you can’t be bothered clicking on the link there: Oh, hai, Bearded Model! We hope that face fur didn’t leave you with a rash! Closer…

      Modelling is Hard: Foot Snatcher Edition

      This Acne model got her feet snatched while modelling this attractive and edgy pair of sheer pants. Such a shame. Such a tragedy. Such a timely reminder of the dangers of trying to dress like a fashion victim, in see-through pants which are so long that we’re wondering if they make…

      Modelling is Hard: Best of 2011

      (Image: ASOS) Modelling is Hard is an occasional Fashion Police feature in which we attempt to show you that modelling isn’t the glamorous career it’s sometimes presented as: far from it. From unflattering outfits to strange poses, gratuitous nudity and Photoshop disasters, we can only hope these models are being paid well for the indignities they’re…

      Model wearing three Jeffrey Cambell handbags

      Modelling is Hard: Jeffrey Campbell handbags edition

      These bags are from Jeffrey Campbell’s Girls We Hated in High School line. Luckily we were wearing sunglasses when we looked at them (The Fashion Police never remove our dark glasses) so we have no real problem with the bags themselves: we show you them purely because the expression on the…

      Modelling is Hard: The Sad Sack

      This dress may just be the funniest thing we’ll see all week. Especially paired with the creepers and black ankle socks. That poor girl. She didn’t sign up for this, ASOS! She thought modelling would be glamorous! She was wrong. Can you see yourself “rocking” this look?

      The Model’s Plight Continues…

      Readers, it saddens us to report that things aren’t getting any better for our favourite ASOS model. In fact, if these images are anything to go by, they seem to be getting worse. *sad trombone* Mind you, we’d look sad too, if we were wearing this outfit, wouldn’t you? (If…

      Modelling is Hard: Zombie Edition

      Before you ask, we’re not talking issue with what this model is wearing, which is pretty inofensive: we’re just concerned for her. The vacant stare, the slumped-over posture: this model is a zombie, isn’t she? Someone has zombified her! Jeez Louise, modelling really IS hard, isn’t it? Seriously, though: why…
