WHAT’S A #VERYYOU MOMENT?
Anytime I see genuine beauty, should it be someone wearing a nice thing or a beautiful scene, something happening in that moment that makes me happy. Afterall, when you go-go-go you forget how beautiful life is.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY AND HOW DID YOU FIRST GET DISCOVERED?
Since 1994. I started by chance. I replaced someone’s assistant and powdered faces on a film. That’s when I knew I wanted to be in the industry.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST RISK YOU’VE EVER TAKEN? DID IT PAY OFF?
The biggest risk I took was leaving my life behind in Europe and coming to America. I left to reach bigger goals, not knowing what would happen. Today, I’m working with people I’d never have thought I’d work with.
WHAT DOES BEAUTY MEAN TO YOU?
I believe there’s a higher intelligence. It cannot be random. It makes me believe there’s something big out there.
SOCIAL MEDIA HAS EVOLVED INTO A POWERFUL TOOL FOR CHANGE, ESPECIALLY FOR THE CURRENT GENERATION OF TOP MODELS. HOW DO YOU MAKE IT WORK FOR YOU?
Social media is hard for me. I’m a Scorpio, so I like to keep things to myself. Nevertheless, I like how we can be countries apart but still feel connected.
