I work in the fashion industry (not as a model), and it is all dependent on the show/designer/brand the model is working for. then you have to factor in the level they are at, the niche, etc. there really is no way to average it out. and trust me, they make more than that an hour. also you have to factor in the girl's agency too. LMAO, charity models get paid more than that per hour.

That seems about right. When you consider your weekly circular Target/JcPenney's model...very few of them will ever see the megabucks!!!

With my job I actually work with fit models and they make anywhere from $75 - $125 per hour so I obviously got the question wrong.

They averaged it out between actual jobs booked. My 7 yr old has been modeling for years and the minimum is $75 an hour and some jobs guarantee a 2 hr payment regardless of how long you were there. Adult models get more per hour generally. Obviously when you get up in the ranks you earn way more.

Yeah, if it was really $11/hr no one would care to do it.

Really? My best friend is a model (small-time, dept store ads, local runways shows and such) and she gets min. of $75/hr. I'm surprised at the $11 rates!

well thats a little misleading, how much per hour average like income per year divided by hours per year worked? or how much made per hour times hours worked? because some freelance models make 200 per set, and well say thats like 5 hours, but they dont work every day of the year, so thats like 40 per hour, but maybe only 10 hours that month or something? right?

Is this taking into account statistical outliers like Cindy Crawford, etc?

Usually they get to keep the clothes they wore during the shoots though, which is probably worth more than $11/hr

I know this because my cousin is a model here in the US. Unless you're in the ranks of Gisele Bundchen, then y ou're worth millions.
