Inward Beauty

Many people with ambition for the fashion and modeling industries do not take into account personality and the ability to work well with others. For example, women make up the majority of the Victoria’s Secret customer base, and because of this, their models are chosen based mostly on their appeal to women, not men, so it is important that a Victoria’s Secret model’s attitude appeal to women.

As a representative of yourself, you must behave in a manner that would not tarnish your image.
