The ABCs of Modeling: Always Be Catwalking

Jun 5 2015 - 12:00pm

Models off duty [1]? No such thing. That's because the job of a model is to be committed to the strut and pose no matter where her day takes her. A walk on the beach? That's a bikini shoot. A game of volleyball? You'd better be ready for an action shot.

And whether they're hailing a cab or just taking a stroll, models like Miranda Kerr [2], Alessandra Ambrosio, Karlie Kloss, and Gisele Bündchen [3] are always on the clock. To be clear, these are not ads, but we're buying whatever these ladies are selling.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley just makes it look so darn easy.

Gisele Bündchen

Gisele Bündchen [4] is like a walking campaign for whatever she just so happens to be wearing.

Alessandra Ambrosio

No, this isn't a Victoria's Secret swimsuit shoot. It's just a day at the beach for Alessandra Ambrosio.

Jourdan Dunn

There's nothing chill about Jourdan's laid-back look. She's on-point, even in sneakers.

Gigi Hadid

Gigi doing what she does best: looking effortlessly chic even when she's just hanging around NYC.

Kendall Jenner

Just casual, Kendall. Just casual.

Karlie Kloss

Something tells us Karlie Kloss didn't have to wait long to catch a cab.

Karlie Kloss

Though were she not to hail a taxi, Karlie is just as happy to walk — because she looks this good doing it!

Joan Smalls

But models aren't just really, really good walkers. They stand still just as well.

Karolina Kurkova

And if you didn't get Karolina Kurkova's photo from the front, she's happy to oblige with options.

Lily Aldridge

Sports are no match for a model determined to pose.

Candice Swanepoel

Next time you wake up to walk your dog in sweats and a tee, just remember: this is how Candice Swanepoel does it.

We're sure even the staunchest green-juice hater might be persuaded to take a sip, were this the beverage's marketing campaign.

Miranda Kerr

And then there's the reigning queen of walking down the street like she's been hired to do it.

Seriously, is this a street style shot or a sunglasses ad?

And don't you always exit your house looking this chic?

Enough already, Miranda; it's just not fair!
