In short  a modelling portfolio tries to showcase your talent,  beauty and suitability for a specific assignment.

Your modelling portfolio shows the casting team how good you look  and how suitable you are to the assignment that they have. This is the very reason that we tell prospective models and actors  that having a good professionally done modelling portfolio is worth the investment.

Having a portfolio that showcases you in different attire and different looks also gives you an advantage in the future.
