Thanks to my selfies! I was just having fun with my friends, posting our pictures on social media when I discovered they had landed the fashion column of a monthly magazine, and I was approached by an Indian fashion photographer based in New Delhi: he saw my pictures and insisted to do my portfolio for free. He was very confident, saying I was tall and would work a lot, and could pay him later.
I love all things creative, that inspire me, feed my imagination, and take me to other realities: fashion, music and food have this tremendous power on me
Favorite music, band:
I like Yo Yo Honey Singh, who’s become a music star in India, but I’m also very eclectic and love to discover new bands thanks to my friends who take me to concerts and festivals, it’s the best feeling in the world.
Favorite movie, tv show:
Favorite movie: I am the big fan of ‘If Only’, even more since I learned that Jennifer Love Hewitt wrote the two songs she performs in the movie. Tv show: this might be due to my love for vintage, but nothing beats ‘Friends’
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
Favorite designer: there are too many I can’t name just one, but I am very proud and supportive of the new generation of Indian designers, led by fashion stars Manish Arora & Prabal Gurung. Fragrance: I wear ‘For Her’ by Narciso Rodriguez. Beauty product: I couldn’t live without mascara and lipgloss
