Kate Moss is probably one of the most successful and recognizable models in the industry. She's modeled some of the world's most notable brands including Calvin Klein, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace and Louis Vuitton. In 2007, Forbes magazine named her as one of the industry's top earners, based on the $9 million dollars she'd earned in the past year.
But there's something else that Kate Moss is known for – something a lot less glamorous unfortunately. In 2005, a British publication released photos of the model using drugs, which nearly destroyed her. Not only did the model risk her health, and her reputation, but also top clients such as H&M, Chanel and Burberry all dropped her from their ad campaigns as a result.
Modeling is an exciting career that can open many doors to once and a lifetime opportunities that many of us only dream of. But because it's such a glamorous profession, it can also attract a lot of negative influences that can threaten to tarnish, or even ruin, a model's career.
In addition to hectic schedules and extensive traveling, models must be prepared to face a number of other issues including drug and alcohol abuse, excessive shopping and partying and eating disorders. Many of these vices are often brought on by constant rejection and lack of steady work, additional factors that models may also have to face.
It's important that you're aware of the vices that are out there and that you have a strong support system in order to help you avoid these pitfalls. Talking to your parents, agent and/or manager when the pressures of the industry begin to weigh on you can help you withstand the stresses of the job. Additionally, by making your health and your career a priority, hopefully you won't have to encounter any of the negative aspects of the industry that many models fall victim to.
