Glam­our comes with some hard work

In our Re­porter Chal­lenge se­ries, Rexine Hawes dis­cov­ers what it takes to be­come a glam­our model.

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

If you have a chal­lenge for our re­porter, please con­tact Rexine Hawes at rexine.hawes@fair­fax­me­dia.co.nz or on 888 7011. which made it eas­ier and I started to loosen up.

I tried a pose which both Andy and Deb like and I am told to ‘hold it’, and hold it. Which meant keep­ing my face re­laxed, and men­tal note - stom­ach in and chest out (I am wear­ing seven inch heels, so also try­ing not to fall over).

‘‘Sit down, stand up, hip out, hip in, arms up, leg ex­tended, shoul­der for­ward, chin up,’’ says Deb.

I have huge re­spect for mod­els if this is what they put them­selves through for their ca­reer. They prob­a­bly don’t al­ways feel con­fi­dent in the way they look, or have a flaw­less body, yet they have the con­fi­dence to put it out there on an on-line world, with so many plat­forms for peo­ple to judge.

While I don’t think a top agency is gonna be knock­ing on my door, I feel dif­fer­ently about my body. That fact, plus mak­ing two great new friends, made this chal­lenge to­tally worth­while.

You can see a col­lec­tion on the Chron­i­cle Face­book page.
