Modeling: how it all began
Don began her career, I came across modeling several times, but didn’t take him seriously. … At first I wanted to graduate from college. After I first appeared in front of the lens and saw the result, I realized that this is what I would like to do in my future life. Having made my choice, I did not regret it!
What do you like most about this profession?
I like to be in a creative environment where you need to adapt quickly. When a customer sets a specific task for you, in which you have to show certain talents, for example, to transform into a completely different personality or portray a certain emotion, for me there is nothing better than this amazing process! Of course, this business has a lot of positive aspects, such as meeting with amazing people from all over the world, talking with world celebrities, traveling, in the end, and much more. Oh yes, I also really like experimenting with different types of makeup during the shoot!
Tell us a little about your most memorable photo shoot?
I had an indelible impression after filming in South Africa, when for several weeks I stayed in Cape Town and enjoyed the pleasant company of my fellow models and the gentle sun! I really liked the beautiful countryside of this city, the landscapes of which are especially beautiful at sunset. This is truly the most beautiful place in the world.
The most unpleasant photo shoot? When I shot for two days in a row for a lookbook, both of them were simply unbearable. All this time I had to pose in terribly uncomfortable wigs, which pricked my head, caused terrible itching, and the hairpins attached to them punctured my whole head. By the end of the second day, all I wanted was to plunge into the cool bathroom with my head. These were the most terrible inconveniences that I experienced while working as a model. But no matter what you do for a good shot!
How would you define your style?
I am a co-owner of a vintage clothing store where we sell a lot of old Harley Davidson shirts and other similar brands, so this style is basic to me. My ideal outfit is either a cool T-shirt paired with ripped skinny jeans (for example, Dsquared2 or Levis), or a mini-dress with beautiful bright earrings (for example, with Swarovski crystals: https://www.kisstyle.ru/11 -sergi) and boots (my favorite brands: Isabel Marant and Chloe), at the ready with a large shoulder backpack, because I always carry a lot of different junk with me.
Which city is your favorite, and why?
I love Phoenix (Arizona), where you can buy many interesting vintage items …. it is truly a mecca of amazing ancient treasures. And Cape Town! I can’t wait to go back and have a meal at the Wellness Warehouse again.
What can you recommend for beginner models?
The moment when I realized that the opinion of one person does not mean anything was decisive, and this changed my life! Not everyone will love you, or your appearance, and this is normal. If you love yourself, you will attract the attention of those who are not indifferent to you, and who are on the same wavelength as you.
Plans for the near future?
I am going to visit Europe with my mom this summer!
