There are many different types of models, both male and female. Most models work in the fashion industry in one way or another, using their body to display clothing and accessories. This can be in a show, in advertisements, on the pages of glossy magazines, on massive billboards, and similar. While many people think of models using their whole bodies, there are also those who focus on particular parts of the body, modeling certain pieces of clothing or accessories, such as hand models who are used to display rings, gloves, bracelets, etc.
From bikini models to high fashion models, and from child models to plus-sized models, there are many more models in the world than just the famous supermodels.
Models may also pose for art, clothed or unclothed. Often this involves sitting very still while others sketch, paint, or draw their form, but artistic models may also be used for photography, in living exhibitions, and more.
