Various well-known models share the shocking moments of being abused and benefited from their work – also by famous photographers.
The women speak frankly about the new Vogue docu series The Models, which open up about the dark side of the industry and their own negative experiences.
In the latest episode, elite fashion stars such as Carolyn Murphy, Haley Clauson and Gemma Ward talk about handheld photographers, cramped model apartments and agencies who were more concerned about making money than the well-being of their customers.

True stories: different models, including Carolyn Murphy (photo), became open about power dynamics in the modeling industry for a new Vogue video
Crossing the border: the 44-year-old remembered a photographer trying to kiss her on a nude photo shoot (pictured left in 2017, exactly in 2016)
Different models that participated in the series used to hang on sets in which successful photographers acted improperly.
Carolyn Murphy, 44, has been in the fashion industry for decades – and although she is hugely successful, she even had to fend off so-called professionals who were anything but effective.
& # 39; A photographer I really wanted to work with and did a series of nudes for a book & # 39 ;, she said in the video.
& # 39; At one point he came over to rearrange my hair a little and so he tried to kiss me! And I pushed him off and I said, "What are you doing? This is not OK for me." Of course my heart is racing. And I think I have to get out of there, and I did. & # 39;
Although she was able to take care of herself, the insidious nature of what was happening had her doubts about her own actions. She said: & # 39; You can't help but think, have I done something to perpetuate this? Did I do something for him to think it was right? & # 39;
Gross: Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover cover girl Haley Clauson, 24, remembered a photographer who told her it was OK if she fell out of her bathing suit
So young: Haley (pictured at the age of 15) said she was just 13 at the time of the incident
Handsy: 29-year-old Patricia van der Vliet, former Dutch top model star, said a famous photographer touched her
Not OK: later she was in a night recording with him and he acted again improperly. Her agent shrugged
She is not the only one who has found herself in the presence of an all too familiar snapper.
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Themedekking girl Haley Clauson, 24, reminded someone who crossed a line when she was just starting out.
& # 39; I was always sexy by nature, if that makes sense? So I think I would be done in these shoots that were sexier, & she started.
& # 39; One of my friends took me to the set and the photographer tried to put me in these little bathing suits and said, "It's okay if things fall out," and I thought, "No, I'm 13, this is not OK. "& # 39;
29-year-old star Patricia van der Vliet from the former Dutch model said that when she started, she had the opportunity to become a & # 39; famous photographer & # 39; to pose that had brought her to his apartment.
It all started well, but then took an unexpected turn.
Well, Ali Michael, 28, said it's not unusual for agents to take away their concerns
She said: & # 39; If I was instructed to do something, I did it. I wanted to do a good job in this crazy opportunity that was offered to me & # 39; (pictured left in 2007 and exactly in 2018)
& # 39; At one point, he asked me if it would be good if we moved to the bedroom. What, still … I didn't think too much of it until he sat on top of me with a camera and his hands stroked my chest. And suddenly it dawned on me that I had to leave, & she said.
Later she had to resume with him when she received an offer that was too & # 39; large & # 39; was to reject. It was a three-day shoot and he had repeatedly given her a different calling time than the rest of the crew, so that they would be alone.
& # 39; Of course I told my agent what happened. And they told me, "Yes, that's known to girls," she said.
Ali Michael, 28, said it is not unusual for agents to take away their concerns.
& # 39; Agencies don't care about the interests of their models. Because if they did, they probably wouldn't make that much money, & she said.
When she did modeling for the first time, she said: & I was a child, so I felt very submissive to all these people who I considered as authority. If I was instructed to do something, I did it. I wanted to do a good job in this crazy opportunity that was offered to me. & # 39;
Hands off! Myla Dalbesio, 32, said that although models use their bare bodies, that doesn't mean they invite people to touch them

Drake Burnette, 33, explained: "There is nothing really comfortable at work. Multiple people touch your face and body all day & # 39;
She added: & # 39; It became a huge challenge to be in these environments where you assume you find accommodating, pleasant and pleasant & # 39; (shown in 2013)
Myla Dalbesio, 32, said that although models use their bare bodies, it does not mean that they invite people to touch them.
& # 39; When a photographer comes to you and moves around like you're a mannequin … I find that incredibly offensive. Especially if you are naked. Just – don't touch me, & she said.
Other models find themselves in uncomfortable situations that have nothing to do with sexuality.
Drake Burnette, 33, explained: "There is nothing really comfortable at work. Multiple people touch your face and body all day long. & # 39;
She remembered that she had been in a Fendi show, where the hairdresser & # 39; almost two hours & # 39; had braided her hair firmly, and had left her in tears. Her agent told her it wasn't right for her to cry.
& # 39; I think many male photographers get up in their career because they are charming or handsome, and a long conversation with them is often uncomfortable because there is a certain amount of flirtation. But also reduction, & she said.
Absolutely not: Shannon Rusbuldt, 34, recalled a shoot with an inexperienced model who asked if it was normal for an agency to set her up for paid dates
Poor girl: Shannon (pictured left in 2008 and exactly in 2010) said the other girl & # 39; got lost & # 39; layman
& # 39; Girls are, as it were, trapped in a cycle of debt at their agency or forced into prostitution, which happens & # 39 ;, Gemma Ward admitted, 31
Model moment: Gemma is shown on the left in 2019 and exactly in 2016
& # 39; It became a huge challenge to be in these environments where you are supposed to be accommodating, take it easy, be pleasant for idiots who only distance themselves from everything you could appreciate about yourself, beyond how you looks like. & # 39;
Abuse by agents has some models not sure what is appropriate and the feeling that they are unable to stand up for themselves.
Shannon Rusbuldt, 34, recalled that she made a catalog early in her career and got to know another model on the set.
The other model said her agency wanted her to stay on a paid date and asked Shannon if that was normal and if she had to comply. Shannon seemed sad about her because the girl & # 39; so lost & # 39; used to be.
& # 39; Girls are, as it were, trapped in a cycle of debt with their agency or being forced into prostitution, which happens, & # 39; Gemma Ward, 31 admitted. & # 39; It can be very difficult. There are many young girls who end this way. & # 39;
That is why Adesuwa Aighewi (26) said she is happy that she has achieved success at a slightly older age – because she has been better able to argue for herself.

& # 39; I don't believe young girls are drawn or blown up so quickly & # 39 ;, Adesuwa added (pictured left in 2018 and exactly in 2019)
Cramped: Model Selena Forrest, 19, talked about the fact that it was scammed by her desk for a small apartment
Terrible: Selena (pictured in 2016) said that seven women per month were crammed for $ 1,200 in a two-bedroom bedroom
& # 39; If you don't have the right people around you, you can easily end up on a yacht with a rich man who uses a lot of drugs and falls off and dies. Or get an eating disorder. Or just fall into the wrong hands, & she said.
& # 39; I don't believe young girls are drawn or blown up quickly, & # 39; she added and said it took away their innocence.
Some models in the episode also spoke about the & # 39; model apartments & # 39; in which young and ambitious models live together, set up by agencies.
& # 39; The model apartment I lived in was the biggest scam ever, & # 39; said Ali Michael.
& # 39; You had a bedroom with two bedrooms and two bathrooms with seven people there. Each girl paid $ 1,200, Selena Forrest added 19.
& # 39; And that's seven people. So $ 1200 times seven, that's a pretty good chunk of change. I mean, we could afford another bedroom there. & # 39;
While an apartment in New York is very expensive, it is certainly possible to find a four-bedroom apartment in Manhattan for less than $ 8,000.
