How did you first get into modeling? I was hanging out along the seaside and, out of the blue, a casting director talked to me. Shortly after, I was working in Paris, New York and Milan. If you weren’t a model, what would you be? I’m studying mechanics. So, if I weren’t a model, I’d be a mechanic. As there are lots of misconceptions about modeling, I’d like to ask you what the best (and worst) part of your job really is. The best part of my life as a model is being able to travel a lot and meet many different people. The worst part is, for sure, having very little free time. New or recycled? Recycled, as I do care about the environment. What’s your spirit animal? A cheetah. Car or bike? I don’t have a driving license. So, I always ride my bike.

Are you into reading? No, not really. I’m into watching Netflix, though. What do you have for breakfast? Usually, I don’t have breakfast. I’m always late in the morning… Are you into thrift shopping? Yes, I am. I love vintage stuff. Has your personal style changed since you started modeling? Of course it has. I used to wear comfy clothes, now I opt for more elegant ones. What’s that one thing you had to wear for a job and wished you could bring home? A pair of jeans by Gucci. They had a zipper that went up from the bottom to the hips. Do you have any style-related advice on how to stand out from the crowd? Don’t follow trends, only wear what you like to wear.
