Place of Origin:
On the metro when I just turned 16, out with friends and on my way to McDonald’s
What was your first modeling job?
It was a test shoot, and I brought my mom for moral support
I love lying around listening to music while naked in my room
What are you listening to at the moment?
“Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” by Led Zeppelin
Favorite movie, tv show:
I have so many favorite movies that I’m not even gonna try to name them, but a few stand outs are: Se7en, The Boy Who Wanted To Be A Bear, anything by Wes Anderson, Black Swan, Clueless, Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Moulin Rouge.
Currently I’m watching Don’t Trust The B—- In Apartment 23 after finishing Black Mirror, because I needed something to take my mind off of the incoming existential crisis.
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I love the Danish brand Ganni, I buy their new collection every season. I wear Chanel Chance when I remember it, and I just stole my boyfriend’s moisturizer from Weleda so I use that.
What were you doing before modeling?
I was in school, but it really wasn’t my thing.
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I don’t know to be honest. I’m really bad at making plans and prefer to just go with the flow. I’ve always wanted to be an actress or work in movies, but I don’t want to be a part of the whole entertainment cycle.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I try to not do uncool things :P
Favorite modeling experience so far?
Walking the Saint Laurent show in October. It was the biggest thing I had ever done, and the whole experience was just mind blowing. I still have a water bottle with a Saint Laurent sticker on it lying around somewhere.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Knowing where I’m going without constantly having to check Google Maps. The easy access to healthy food is nice, because when I’m traveling I usually become too lazy to look for anything substantial and just go for pizza
Which brand would you really love to model for?
I really want to shoot a campaign for Calvin Klein at some point in my life. Their underwear is great.
Place you would love to visit:
The Bahamas. Now. Right now. Fuck winter!
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Yoga and shooting with disposable cameras.
