Hand Models

A really interesting bit about hand models, including head shots so you can see what they really look like. I never knew that one could be a full-time hand model. Apparently it means using lots of lotion and wearing gloves all the time. Pictured above is Elizabeth Barbour:

During a photo shoot in 1983, Elizabeth Barbour says she “tilted her hand in such a way” that the photographers captured the perfect shot of her hand grazing a glass. The shot was the basis for the redesign of the Palmolive soap label, which is still around to this day. She was paid $650 for the shoot and calls the experience “one of the funniest things I’ve ever done.”

  1. There are feet models also!
    Read an interview with one once…said she wears shoes a size too big and they are filled with sand to constantly exfoliate her feet and keep them smooth!
