Here's Proof That Working Conditions For Models Suck

Just terrible!

Former model and Model Alliance founder Sara Ziff is once again revealing the dark side of modeling and thanks to a new survey, she has proof!

The results came after Ziff and former model Jenna Sauers sent a survey to 241 girls and even though only 85 returned it, their answers were more than troubling:

- 68.3% of models suffer from anxiety or depression
- 76.5% have been exposed to drugs or alcohol on the job
- 29.7% of models have been touched inappropriately on the job
- 28% have been pressured to have sex with someone on the job
- Of those who’ve experienced sexual harassment, only 29.1% felt they could tell their agencies, which might be because they lack the confidence that comes with adulthood, since:
- 54.7% begin working between the ages of 13 and 16

The average age of the respondents was 26, which means that they skewed towards older and more experienced women.

Still, this is totally ridiculous!

The industry needs to he some serious reform, and soon!

And it's quite douchey.

Marc Jacobs didn't waste any time responding to claims that he didn't pay model Hailey Hasbrook after some 30+ hours of work as a look model.

A Code Of Conduct For Models In The Works

Filed under: Legal MattersModels

Amazing!

Former model Sara Ziff is once again fighting for model's rights.

Following the September release of Picture Me, a film that exposed the ugly side of the modeling, Ziff is hard at work developing a code of conduct for models.

The Columbia University senior explains:

"The modeling industry is essentially unregulated. There are no provisions for rest and meal breaks [during work hours]. And a lot of modeling agencies have a huge amount of power over international girls because they sponsor their visas."

Sara is getting some help from Fordham University's Fashion Law Institute and hopes the new code will create a safer working environment for models.

Sounds like a great idea! Hopefully it works.

New Film Reveals The Ugly Side Of Modeling

At the end of New York Fashion Week, a documentary was released that shows how brutal the modeling industry can be.

The film titled Picture Me follows model Sara Ziff and her friends as they try to make a name for themselves in the fashion world.

Unfortunately, getting to the top is not that easy.

One of the models in the film, Sena Cech has numerous horror stories of getting drugged, having her eyes burned after a photographer used a UV flash, and giving a certain photographer a hand job while on a shoot.

Creepy!

Picture Me opens in Los Angeles September 24th.

See a sneak peak of the film in the clip, above!
