Laury Prudent is a 5’10” international model and actress. Prudent started out her modeling career on the television series “Make me a Supermodel” season II, where she was a top ten finalist. She felt that being on the show was a good experience and it inspired her more than ever to become a model.
Prudent has been working in the modeling and entertainment industry for the last six years. She started out on career building websites One Model Place and I studio to build her portfolio. Then she began submitting to their listed casting calls, which is how she was discovered by Michael Gleissner on his show “Screen Test” a Fashion One Network series, where she learned how to do underwater modeling. During that series Mr. Gleissner suggested that Prudent try out for a role in his latest movie release “Deep Gold.” Now Prudent has successfully transitioned her career onto the big screen with the new movie “Deep Gold” a Big Foot Studio production.
We asked Prudent for her perspective as an industry standard model and whether she feels the fashion industry ideology sets a bad standard for women in general? She said, ” I totally think the current ideology of the fashion industry is discriminating to the average women. Some fashion magazine paints an unrealistic portrayal of beauty. They are full of super tall and thin models chosen to represent all women. The reality is that the average women is 5’3″ curvy and beautiful. Some women look at the cover of a fashion magazine and is left feeling imperfect so they take drastic measures such as adopting eating disorders or surgery to clone themselves into cover models.”
Here is what Prudent has to say about her experience working with petite models. “I have been very fortunate to work with a wide range of models including petite models and I must say that petite models bring just as much it not more to the table than us ‘Amazonian’ models. They come to set with a grudge on their shoulder and eager to prove themselves as equal.”
Our final question for Prudent was if she sees a change up on the horizon in fashion? “Though the demand for statuesque models is still high, I feel that more designers are stepping outside the box and working more with petite models in hopes of attracting more average women. I will say that petite models are breaking down the barriers and ready to leave a lasting impression on the NEW fashion industry.”
