Sur une musique en arrière-plan des images de CLÉMENT, mannequin professionnel, défilent.
Donc, je suis Clément, je
viens de France et je suis
Je travaillais dans la banque et
j'étais derrière un ordinateur,
je voyais pas de clients. Donc,
c'était pas vivant et c'est pas
mon caractère. Ça me venait déjà
à l'idée de quitter pour faire
autre chose. J'avais un
ami styliste... Je vois un
photographe qui est ami avec
lui. Il me dit: «Bien, j'ai
envie de te prendre en photo
shoot.» Et puis après,
ça s'est enchaîné.
Il y a énormément de
concurrence. On peut avoir
fraternités, mais il y a
vraiment beaucoup de jalousie.
Donc, je me suis fait peu d'amis
dans le métier. Je préfère
séparer le perso et
Pour faire ce métier, faut quand
même avoir une confiance en soi,
sans dire d'avoir un ego
surdimensionné. Mais on va être
sujet à de nombreuses critiques.
Faut savoir qui on est, savoir
se placer, savoir faire la
distinction entre la vie
personnelle et la vie
En plus des photos de mannequinat de CLÉMENT des images de lui s'entraînant dans un gym défilent.
Il y a des
critères de taille chez les
mannequins hommes et chez les
mannequins femmes. 1,84 mètre
pour être pris en agence et pour
les mannequins qui veulent
défiler, la taille standard,
c'est 1,88 mètre et pas
au-dessus de 1,92 mètre.
La lingerie masculine, faut être
musclé. Donc, c'est des critères
aussi de physique autre
que la beauté du visage.
Faut régulièrement faire
attention à son corps suivant
dans quoi on se spécialise.
Faire attention à pas se blesser
avant un shooting, travailler
ses relations, avoir un
à jour avec l'évolution
de son physique, pour montrer
que tu corresponds aux
tendances à venir.
C'est un métier à part entière.
Donc, c'est un métier artistique
où on se sert de son physique
tel un danseur, tel un acteur,
aussi qui a sa personnalité. Un
sportif aussi se sert de son
physique, bien, pour performer
sur ses matchs,
sur sa discipline.
Ça peut paraître superficiel
parce que c'est le physique qui
est mis en avant, mais derrière,
il y a un travail aussi constant
sur soi. Donc, c'est aussi
un métier à part entière.
Une carrière peut pas durer
beaucoup d'années. Donc, faut
faire attention, mais faut aussi
profiter de la vie et pas
s'interdire tout. Faut pas
tomber au premier échec, au
premier refus. Faut persévérer,
faut se donner les chances.
Prendre son courage et aller
voir l'agence et, puis y croire.
