Talent FAQ


So, you may have some questions?

Since the establishment of Everything Formals Model Management in 2009, many talents associated with the Agency have reached out with similar questions. Questions have spanned from Talent bookings to contract lengths and more.

Below are some questions that have been frequently asked.  If the question you’re inquiring about is not below, please feel free to email the Agency at [email protected]

I’m interested in signing with Everything Formals Model Management. What’s my first step?

Please head over to our Female Application to fill out the submission form. Remember to include links to your social media accounts and up-to-date measurements.

What if I don’t have professional photos?

That’s no problem! Since we are a niche Agency, we advise Talent to submit photos in gowns, runway photos, and headshots/selfies for consideration. We recommend doing TFP shoots (in a safe manner) or treating yourself to a professional photography session.

Unless you are a professional at taking photos on iPhones, if accepted, we encourage you to wait until you have pictures that are up to industry standards before being displayed on the Agency website.

How long does the contract last?

The Talent Agreement lasts until either Talent emails the Agency requesting to terminate their contract or Agency emails the Talent terminating their contract. From the date of termination, a two-year non-compete policy goes into place for all Clients of EFMM. Talent may request a list of those Clients.

Can I model with other photographers if I become an EFMM model?

The answer is YES! We want you to grow as a talent and build connections. We encourage you to shoot with professional photographers and TFP shoots (in a safe manner). We only ask that you do not work with designers and photographers you've connected with through EFMM at markets and associated events.

Can I be signed with other agencies while being signed with EFMM?

Absolutely! We are a non-exclusive Agency. That means that we do not limit you to only working with our Agency. You can be signed with as many agencies as you want. However, any bookings with our clients must be done through EFMM.

On a three-day booking, am I allowed to book for two days or a half-day?

We have a step-by-step guide on our website focused on how to take your measurements properly. Please visit the site by clicking this link: https://www.everythingformals.com/how-to-take-your-measurements/

I just received an email that I was accepted to the Agency! How do I start working with the Agency?

Once you have signed your contract and it has been countersigned by the Agency, please email [email protected] stating your event date availability. That way the Agency can mark Talent down for specific Marts and start pitching you to designers for bookings.

What is a pre-booking?

This can be used synonymously with a direct booking. There are designers who want to look at models for future shows. A pre-booking is when the designers decide to book talent in advance for one of the future shows based on talent’s photos and measurements on the website. EFMM holds in-person castings at the majority of events and the Talent can choose to still attend castings, if taking place, for that specific show to try to get pre-booked for a future show.

What is the difference between social media influencers and models?

SMI is a separate program. Sozie is the company we partner with. That is why we call it EFMM X Sozie, also known as Sozies. This program allows you the fun opportunity to make some easy cash on the side while working with some of the biggest brands nationwide. It is so easy to take some fun influencer-style pics and write a review modeling store products for a cash-back incentive.

When do I know if I’m booked?

If you are booked, you will receive a confirmation email along with a contract that needs to be signed. Please be aware that this contract has an expiration date. In addition, please understand that an availability check IS NOT the same as being booked.

**Always read email instructions carefully – they’ll often provide guidelines with specifics on that particular show.**

When should I expect to receive payment after a booking?

Talent will receive payment 30-45 business days after the completion of the booking, once the Agency receives payment from Client for work performed by Talent.

Can I take pictures during my booking?

You need approval from all Clients to take any pictures during a booking. All photography, filming or images captured (content) during any assignment of Agency becomes the property of the agency. The Talent agrees that the agency will own all rights that exist in the content created from the booking. Any image used without written authorization or prior approval from the agency will be deemed unauthorized use and will be subject to legal proceedings. For the avoidance of doubt, we require Clients pay additional fees for the right to use the Talent’s image or reproductions, or adaptations of, or drawings derived from that image, or any other representation of it, either complete or in part whether alone or in conjunction with any wording or other images, photographs, drawings online or in any digital media including but not limited to Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, Flickr, Blogs or other social networking websites or media.


How will I know where to go once I arrive at the mart?

The Everything Formals Model Management staff will be onsite at each mart to help show Talent where to go. You will always be accompanied by an EFMM staff member during castings. Models may not roam the floors alone during castings.

Do I wear makeup for castings?

Absolutely! Though other model castings require a fresh face, the designers at these shows are looking for glam! Here is a helpful blog to refer to: https://www.everythingformals.com/blog/hair-makeup-glamour/

Will hair and makeup be provided?

No, models are responsible for doing their own hair and makeup.

What should I wear?

You will want to wear a form-fitting top and bottom, so you can show off your shape. Jeans, t-shirts, and jumpsuits are great options. Colors that compliment your hair and skin tone will always enhance your look. We don't suggest wearing all black.

What should I pack?

1. Nude and clear heels

2. Umbra and nipple covers

3. Nude thongs

4. Blister tape and blister band-aids

5. Makeup Bag

6. Hot tools (straightener and curler)

7. Clear deodorant

8. Unscented lotion

9. Bobby pins and hair ties

10. A set of glitzy jewelry (specifically earrings)

11. Blotting paper

12. Epsom salts (for aching feet)

What happens if I show up for castings and I do not get booked?

The Agency will try to accommodate you with a behind-the-scenes job so you can break even on the trip. This is a great way to meet designers and network for future opportunities!

Should I bring a comp card?

No, these are not allowed at the mart. You will be given EFMM business cards to give to designers that you can label with your name. Talent will also always roam the floor with an EFMM staff member who will communicate with designers and advocate on their behalf during castings.

Can I bring my parents, friends, boyfriend, etc.?

The hotel spots are reserved only for booked talent and those who are contracted to work behind the scenes. Males do not receive a space in our hotel, unless previously discussed with the owner of the Agency. Minors may be accompanied by a female guardian if staying in the EFMM hotel

Again we are always here to help you be successful.
