As comically mentioned in the movie Zoolander, hand models are an entirely different breed of models. Hand models represent a different talent in the modeling world, as these models use their beautifully sculpted fingers and hands to show off a certain product. What makes hand modeling so interesting is that these models are selected based off the beauty and/or shape of one part of their body. With something as simple as “hands,” this modeling sector has boomed to include print, editorial, commercial, and film work across the globe.
Without even realizing it, we as consumers see these hands everyday. They are the hands in your favorite commercial, the hands in the magazine you are reading, they are even the hands on the cover of your book (think Twilight by Stephenie Meyer). Hand models have become a hot commodity as countless products are in need of blemish free, soft looking hands. Today, there are a few hand models that stand out from the rest. Read on to learn more about the top hand models that are crushing it in the fashion industry today.
