Changemaker Models


We’re home to models who have inspiring stories to tell, and a passion for changing their world.

We believe in speaking out

At Body London, we believe that every model is an individual, as well as a professional. Our models are diverse, which means they bring something new to every debate. From LGBTQ+ role models, to campaigners for inclusion, and the models speaking up for a better industry, we’re the natural home for models who make an impact.

Leanne’s mission for model rights

Leanne Maskell was scouted at 13, and her first booking featured in Vogue UK. Working with countless brands and model agencies gave her an insider’s view of the industry, where she identified a need for greater model rights. Training as a lawyer, she went on to write The Model Manifesto: an invaluable handbook for anybody working in modelling.
