A catwalk model has been revealing the truth about exactly what goes on behind the scenes of photoshoots and runway shows by re-captioning her Instagram images.
Jazz Egger – a London-based model who appeared in Germany’s Next Top Model, took to the social media platform to reveal what actually happened when the photos were taken, using the hashtag #truthbehindthisshot.
On one of the images, the 19-year-old explained that her agency had said her “hips were way too wide” and told her to slim down if she wanted to walk at London Fashion Week.
photoshop lvl 7000 / sorry @robertsakowski for destroying your wonderful work xx (#truthbehindthisshot my agency told me on that day that my hips were way too wide and that I needed to lose weight in order to have a chance at London Fashion Week. I already was underweight so I decided to not lose any weight. I still got confirmed for LFW.)
“I already was underweight so I decided to not lose any weight. I still got confirmed for LFW,” she wrote.
The Austrian model also told her fans that she only kept her Instagram account because casting directors had started asking how many followers she had, “so they can decide whether they consider me or nah”.
In another post, Egger detailed the lengths she had gone to prepare for London Fashion Week, explaining that she “didn’t eat/drink salt, sugar, fat and alcohol for months” all to keep her acne from flaring on the day of the show.
“Didn’t work. Makeup artists covered it up,” she wrote.
