“I was always aware of the commercial side of this industry, and saw it as my career, which required hard work and planning,” she tells W. magazine.
“The Pirelli calendar with my image hangs on the wall of my friend in his university dormitory, and he knows nothing about fashion. This is the balance that makes large campaigns gain popularity and go beyond the fashion industry, guided by consumer sentiment, rather than fashion dictation. But I do not want to make a choice in favor of only one of them. Both the commercial component and the high fashion coupled make my work interesting. ”
