Modeling: how it all began
I was discovered by a photographer in California when I went in for coffee at Starbucks. He convinced me to take part in his photo shoot. But in fact, he guided me, and I ended up in a modeling agency. At first I got angry that I was deceived, but after a couple of hours, they signed a model contract with me, and my first photo shoot did happen, in the team of the same photographer. A week later, these pictures were on the cover of a California fashion magazine.
How has a career as a model influenced your life?
The amazing profession of model has opened up many opportunities for me: traveling around the world, meeting new people and cultures, learning different languages. In addition, I was able to see a lot of interesting things that would have remained unknown to me if everything had turned out differently. Modeling also gave me the opportunity to understand who I really am and what I want from life. What hobbies are really important to me, and how can I use this passion to be useful to others. Thus, I was able to find myself as a writer and write a book about the modeling business “YOU ARE A Supermodel”. My work as a writer and TV presenter gives me the possibility of a voice that can be heard. This is a good opportunity to communicate with other people and present the models and the entire model industry in a positive light.
What was your most memorable photo shoot?
In my memory there are so many wonderful shootings that I spent in completely different places and worked with the most wonderful teams. But I will never forget the shoot for the cover of L’Officiel in Cannes, during which I was on a horse, which in turn threw me off. But I didn’t have the right to be afraid, to drop everything and leave the set, so I climbed the horse again. None of the group expected such courage from me, but in fact, I was just in shock.
You wrote the book “YOU A Supermodel.” What inspired you to write this book?
“YOU ARE A Supermodel” is my gift to every person who looks at the pages of magazines and billboards and thinks that he can never be there or have the body of his dreams. According to statistics, 80% of women and girls are unhappy with their bodies, and have low self-esteem. I want to change that! “YOU A Supermodel” shows readers how and why models look the way they look, and it is much healthier than what the media makes us believe. Each person deserves to choose their life path and have the body of their dreams, and I wholeheartedly believe that the 5 key points in my book can help achieve this goal. This book is not about trying to be a supermodel or to look like any other model, it is about forming a supermodel inside each of us, making you look and feel, without restricting your own “I”.
What are some of the biggest misconceptions regarding supermodels?
I wrote a whole chapter about this called Aliens from the Planet Model, debunking many of the myths and misconceptions about models. There are so many stereotypes about models, such as, for example, we all suffer from digestive upset due to diets, use drugs, resort to plastic surgery, have fabulous fees and so on. The biggest misconception is that all models without exception consider themselves special, suffer from star fever and think that having the status of a supermodel makes them special or better than others. That models are some of the most unstable people on the planet. We are not confident in our appearance, our bodies, we are afraid of aging, we do not have sufficient intelligence, and other things that are similar in spirit that I have ever heard in my career.
