Hi Estefania,

It is because of the following rule -

The direct object (les différents modèles ) is after the verb so no agreement is made.

Take a look at the following lesson which will explain further:

Hope this helps!

Here, it doesn't take agreement because "lui" is an indirect object; only direct objects require agreement.  In this sentence, the direct object (les différents modèles) comes after the verb. 

"je lui ai montré"? porquoi pas "je lui ai montrée"?
