I think rgveda99's post quoted above should read "Most actors/actresses in Asia usually come from modelling for front cover pages in magazines and advertisements." The PGSM Senshi actresses have also done modeling before, during, & after their working on PGSM. :)
I actually meant what I posted. But yeah some models from the fashion industry do end up as celebrities as well.
An interesting case would be Keiko's (PGSM Rei), who started modeling about the same time as her working on PGSM, but quit it not long after PGSM to concentrate on her acting career. After she's become famous as an actress, she again models for fashion mags (among others) - not just one, but tons of them this time. l o l

Considering everyone has the same bodytype (and by consequence, face due to anime drawing conventions) with the exception of height/coloring, they all could. From an in-universe standpoint, I'm gonna say manga!Haruka would be the most successful since in the manga she seems to be the most versatile: she has a very masculine style yet dresses extremely girly at others. That she can be very masculine and then feminine is something that the others can't do and I think would be an advantage.

She does look good in a swimsuit.
I'm pretty sure the 5'2" she's supposed to be consists entirely of her legs. :|

Technically, all of the characters could qualify as models based on height requirements just because Naoko (and occasionally the animators) draw them as so freakin' lanky and thin. Most runway models don't look half as long or thin as the Senshi do in the manga- their skeletons get in the way. ;)

Don't think Minako would be a good model. I don't think she'd be very committed to the whole dieting regimen models have to undergo. That's not to say as an idol, she wouldn't be able to be a spokeswoman for commercials or stuff, I meant in the sense of being a high-fashion supermodel.

It would definitely be an advantage. Fashion modeling is all about being a canvas for the designer's clothes, make-up, etc. Haruka's versatility and height would work out great. Not to mention the androgynous look is very popular nowadays.

And yeah any of the Starlights fit this description as well.

Setsuna and Michiru would make great Victoria's Secret models I think. They still have to be really tall and thin, the VS angels are all 5'9"+, but they have a much more feminine look.

Haruka, Setsuna, Taiki.

Like someone said, the androgynous look is very popular now-a-days. Think ...



Setsuna would just be an amazing model I think. I remember reading she wants to be a fashion designer, and Naoko actually put her in some clothing Naomi Campbell wore. Some models generally have a unique look, I don't think any of the senshi have that besides the androgynous characters (Taiki, Seiya, Haruka), I don't think Yaten would be androgynous by choice.

As for Seiya though she might have a more feminine look then Haruka when given a choice to be feminine. I see Seiya and Yaten looking similar to -

The blonde in the second picture(Agyness Deyn, I think) is how I picture Haruka as a white person.

I think Minako can work well as a gravure model, just as Ayaka, her actress in PGSM, does. :)
