Models Being Funny: Check Out This Hilarious Spoof Video Series All About the Fashion Industry!

The fashion industry—and all its beautiful people and their flair for drama—can be a pretty funny place. Like, you know how Zoolander is funny, whether you work in fashion or not? Well, if you do work in the industry, Zoolander takes on a whole new level of hilarity, because I really do feel, in my heart of hearts, that all that stuff could happen, to some degree, in real life. Yup.

Speaking of fashion industry spoofs, check out Model Files, a hilarious two-season YouTube series that’s a send-up of the modeling industry.

I was sold when the first episode, below, opened with the disclaimer: “No models’ feelings were hurt in the taping of the show.” Check it out for yourself:

One of the best lines from the pilot? When the casting director, Preston, says, “Can you do a Rick Owens type of walk? Just die inside a little bit?”

And what about those model poses that we all know too well from fashion magazines? Here’s a rundown of my personal favorites.

The “There’s something in my eye” pose –


The “I think I’m getting sick” pose –


The “I have a strange rash” pose –


And, last but definitely not least, the “Look at me, don’t look at me” pose –


Check out the entire Model Files series right here on YouTube—and tell me what you think of it in the comments section, below!
