One of the first things I tell my clients when we talk about their style is: When someone meets you for the first time it takes them 7 seconds to judge you and 10 more meetings for them to change their opinion of you. Why not get it right the first few seconds? Image is a powerful tool. As a professional model and image consultant I know this to be true. I always need to put my best self forward but find that there must be a balance so that I remain true to myself and not to fit an image of how others perceive me. How do you find the right balance? Here’s a great 10min video of Cameron Russell (Victoria’s Secret model) speaking on this exact topic. Let me know what you think.
