14 Shocking Industry Secrets Fashion Models Will Never Tell You

Looking from the outside, the world of fashion models seems pretty easy with oodles of services done in hand and before them even asking. Their life seems quite lush and full of expensive ices and hard bills, but there are still things that they never talk about. 

It is impossible to imagine them having a not so happy go lucky life with all expensive things around and that too for free but unfortunately we are looking at a bigger picture here, and all that we see is that the things we feel are not what their life is all about. There is a lot to it. 

Earlier this year, Cara Delevigne, our favourite Victoria's Secret model opened up about their life as a supermodel and it wasn't what we were looking forward to. She said it is 'horrible' inside. 

She is not the only one who had the nerves to come forward and complain about how badly they are treated and what all they have to go through to stay the same. They have an inside life, and it is good that they get to share only a portion. 

It isn't just backstabbing, bitching, rivalries or even emotional abuse but it's more than you ever knew of or imagined and we have the exact scoop here. Let's start digging.

While you might even scroll down any of the modelling agencies and see for yourself, you will see a striking change in the diversity of the models. The industry is bubbling with a lot of variety of these beauties and we love them. But, with varieties come different troubles and you very well know what they are like. 

11. The bigger the stars, the bigger the Diva.

Of course, if you are a model you are ought to stay in the loop of being a Diva and you mess one thing, you'll be stripped down to no one. And the bigger the Diva gets, the bigger their expectations and behaviour gets.
