You just have to work on your looks and the attitude you carry with yourself on a public podium. And above all that it is one of the highest paid jobs round the globe. But in any field, you earn money and fame only with your hard work, dedication and determination.
Supermodel is the category of the models who are at the peak of their career, they are in huge demand by mega fashion houses or top brands to endorse their products. These Supermodels are paid too handsomely for a ramp-walk or a photoshoot of a few hours. Not only this, after being a supermodel, the doors for acting are opened with welcome. This is the only industry in whole world where females are paid more than their male counterparts and the difference of the pay scale between the two genders is around 75%.
