have a similar body size, their are other types of modeling opportunities
as well. Fashion models can be short, tall, thin, bulky, green eyes,
brown eyes, blonde hair, red hair, etc.

commercial products, or to serve as a visual aid for people who are creating
works of art or to pose for photography.
