|«Is there a right outfit or a look that would be appropriate for a casting? If so, which would that be?»
personally believe in the necessity of acquiring a sort
of a day uniform. It has to do with a personal way to dress,
which not only makes everyday life easier,
but also presents to the world the correct image we wish to project.
Models are under constant scrutiny.
Although a ‘right’ attire is not something that i would insist upon,
there are some rules which would help to
establish a good impression.
Cleanliness and tidiness, above all.
Who wants to have a dirty model? Avoid flip flops and sandals

to master a pair of unknown heels in a couple of minutes.
Be friendly and polite but not too eager and over chatty... People in charge
of castings are busy and in a hurry - who
wants someone who lingers around? If you must hand shake,
make sure you don’t
have sweaty palms! This is creepy!
gracefully even if you were treated rudely.
There is nothing that puts people at their place like good manners and poise.
