Place of Origin:
It’s was four or five months ago in Cologne… I was sitting in a restaurant called “Hans im Glück” which is famous for their awesome burgers, when a young man was checking me out. At first I was just ignoring him and felt a bit uncomfortable. I was already thinking of how I could get rid of him when he came to my table. Against all expectations he started with: “Hey you, are you a model?” I thought he was kidding and started laughing and saying “Noooo.” Only when he gave me his card, I understood. And now I’m here, so it’s been obviously the right decision to not get rid of him.
I like insects. I don’t know why, but for me they are gorgeous. I live on a farm in Germany. We have no neighbors but a huge forest and a lot of fields. When I was younger I was just walking around, crawling through tunnels and collecting insects. I love my home and our animals. At my place it’s so quiet, you can hear our cows chewing the grass at night, what I love. It’s the perfect location for reading books and I actually read a lot when having one of those rare off days from work.
Favorite music, band:
I used to play piano and guitar when I was younger, but honestly I never became that good and it was the reason why I quit in the end.. I hate not being good at something, so I reduced my passion for music in visiting concerts and listening to good bands, like Alt-j who’s concerts are awesome!! My favorite concert ever was C2C who I saw on the hurricane festival two years ago. In general I love music with that kind of rhythm that makes you move your feet.
Favorite movie, tv show:
I like “the Shawshank Redemption”. I could watch it again and again. And I was kind of hooked on “Twin Peaks” a few years ago. I mean, I used quotes and stuff like that… it was funny!
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
My life saver is the SOS mask of SBT. It’s the best product ever for dry skin! Another important basic is Bepanthen – tried and true. Concerning cosmetics I really think less is more. My favorite fragrances are uncountable… I’m obsessed with the fragrances of Narciso Rodriguez!!
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I think I would study biology. It was always my best subject in school… maybe because it was the only subject that interested me. I am so thirsty for more knowledge. This planet is full of things we may not know about and I can’t wait to find out more.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I guess insect’s social reputation is not that good… I mean most housewifes want them dead… but are they uncool now?
Favorite modeling experience so far?
I had a job at Stockholm where I had to jump from a platform on a giant air pillow. I think I don’t need to say more: platform, air pillow… questions? It was one of the best days, I guess!
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
My hometown is a very small but beautiful village. The thing I love the most is the countryside and actually there’s nothing more but countryside to tell you the truth… I’ve got two sisters and three brothers but most of them study in the city. But they all come home to visit the family from time to time and that’s the best thing – when all Höllers are together!
Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would love to model for Chanel. The fashion is simply outstanding and their the shows never get boring. A fashion show in a supermarket… so creative! Also I find Alexander Wang’s vision for Balenciaga totally amazing.
Place you would love to visit:
I’ve never been to Iceland. It must be amazing!

Reese’s! My boyfriend’s family brought me some from the United States… how can a human being create something so ingenious?
