Modelling jobs can be difficult and stressful for beginners, but babies and kids often find it easier as the sets are designed to make them feel comfortable. Here’s what Toby’s mum had to say!

When everyone commented on what a smiley baby Toby is I thought – why not see if anybody would like to use him for their campaigns? – so we signed him up to Talent Management.

Toby very much enjoyed his first assignment, working as a model for the lovely team at Kit for Kids. He was very grateful for the crib backstage to take a short nap in mid shoot! All in all, a very easy and enjoyable experience.

If you didn’t already know, Talent Management are the parent company of Models Direct. Find out more about our connection in the video below the post and check out Models Direct on Tumblr!

The Truth about Children’s Growing Pains

We all remember those long nights of agony as our leg bones grew and our muscles struggled to keep up. This pain is experienced by the majority of children, and most often in the legs. Growing pain is not a medical condition or a disease that needs treated by a doctor. The pain is almost always gone by morning because we grow the most at night. They are a normal part of childhood and when it happens your child will benefit from comfort, attention and a motherly touch.

The most common childhood growing pains are sharp, throbbing pains in the legs, typically occurring at night and sometimes in late afternoon. Occasionally, the pains can be strong enough to wake a child. Between 25 and 40 percent of children between three and five years, and again between the ages of 8 and 12, experience these night time aches. If they indeed do not happen during the day then the chances are very high that they are simply growing pains and no further attention is needed. Modelling photo shoots are sometimes called off if the baby is distraught and feeling these pains. They happen almost at random and can just come out of the blue. There are some things you can do though to soften the discomfort. Massaging increases the blood flow to the growing tissues and bones and will take some attention away from the pain. Heated pads or warm hot water bottles will dull the pain too following by gentle stretching and moving to get things settled into place.

When trying these things pay close attention to your child’s reactions. If the area appears tender or hypersensitive it may be an indicator that something else is happening. They should be comforted by your touch. Growing pains are a muscular ache, not an inflammation, more like a stretching. Tenderness in the joints or pain when touched heralds a quick visit to your GP. These classic “growing pains” are different from pain associated with the rapid growth during the time period surrounding puberty. Increased bone growth outpaces muscle and tendon flexibility, causing new stresses on attachments to certain growth areas on the bone. Pain and swelling can occur and interfere with activities and sports. Inflammation of the growth plates is called apophysitis. The most common areas affected are the knee and heel, and the pain can fluctuate during the 2 to 3 years of rapid growth. Treatment includes flexibility exercises, local ice application, and altering activities during the painful days. Many modelling advice companies and agencies will encourage regular check ups from the GP if they feel that illness may affect your availability the health of your child.

Daisy Lowe at Milan Fashion Week

Models Direct favourite Daisy Lowe was turning heads (as usual!) at this season’s Fashion Week in Milan. Modelling for Dolce & Gabbana, the 20-year-old supermodel donned a provocative, unique and interesting red outfit, which left little to the imagination!

There are rumours that the former London socialite will be returning to her British roots in 2010 after appearances in the city over London Fashion Week and after breaking up with on-off boyfriend Will Cameron, whom she moved to New York for.

What do you think of Daisy’s look in the images above?

Sarah Jessica Parker to be face of Halston fashion

It’s been revealed in an article by the Daily Mail that Sarah Jessica Parker has signed contracts with US fashion label Halston in the first steps towards an advertising campaign to be launched alongside the second Sex And The City film next spring.

Given the success of the first film, it seems a great move for Halston to get involved with the established fashionista before the second one launches! Here at Models Direct, we’re excited to see what the campaign will look like, and whether the clothes themselves will be Sex And The City inspired…
