Brand you would like to model for?: Doesn’t really matter for me. But love when a brand/designers show real interest in a person. That makes me wanna work with them again.
Best / hilarious / curious modelling experience ever?: Grabbing Kate’s bottom.
What would you choose between working on a photo shoot or catwalk?: I would say catwalk. This because during the fashion week all your friends are in town. There’s no night without fun. But also love a chilled shoot with no hassle. Would love to shoot somewhere outside the city too.
Is there someone in the fashion or photography world who you specifically admire?: To Mert. He taught me a lot about life an I am very grateful for that. And thanks also to Barbara Pfister for giving me the opportunity to work with Versace. They helped me to start my career!
Favourite place in the world?: Still looking for it.. I’m glad this job gives you the opportunity to give you the experience to kinda ‘live’ for a short period of time all around the world. Makes it easier to decide where you really wanna end up living.
Currently obsessed for… Pugs and wine.
Your own perfect look would be… My look?.
