The magic behind a good photo is movement, acting, and providing a range of different emotions. I believe this is one of the reasons the modeling industry has moved more towards using actresses in place of models. This has been a shift since our last great Super Models: Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Iman, and Linda Evangelista ect. The agencies and TV created a lifestyle that everyday women dreamed of...wealth, sunny beaches, parties, gorgeous clothes, shoes, men, and fame all for being a woman with the power to entice. If models could build a persona for viewers to relate to they could steal the show back from their onscreen competitors.
Agyness Deyn is one example of a working model who conveys huge personality.
Others who have built a name through their modeling: Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen... and tv personality models Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks who have brought great attention to the modeling and fashion world.
