@agnes_hestholm

Place of Origin:
Norway, Bergen (the city where it rains 285 days of the year)

Ethnic Origin:
½ Norwegian and ½ German

Birthsign:
I’m a Pisces/Fish which is convenient with all this rain.

How discovered:
I was scouted by Wolfhard Münter from Mega Model Agency on the train to Hamburg. First I thought it was fake – but obviously it wasn’t.

What was your first modeling job?
It was a shoot in Berlin some time ago. I had to fly all the way from Norway and there was a lot of stopovers. I was in four countries in only one day!

Favorite things:
MY POINTE SHOES. My best friend and worst enemy.

What are you listening to at the moment?
The Notorious B.I.G, or whatever gives me confidence while walking down the street. Frank Ocean is also an all-time favorite of mine.

Favorite movie, tv show:
Absolutely addicted to RuPaul’s Drag Race! It’s on Netflix!

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I use a lot of oils on my skin and even in my hair! My favorite one is by Weleda and is called Granatapfel Regenerations-Öl.

What were you doing before modeling?
I was in school and I am still in school. I dance as much as possible in my free time.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
For the last three years I’ve danced a lot, and I’m slowly starting to realize it might be also another big thing in my life. Unfortunately, I was too old when I first started (or as least that’s what some of the teachers tells me), but I’m not giving up before both legs are broken, and even then, you can’t stop me.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
Contemporary dance! (even though some consider contemporary as the coolest thing on earth). Oh, and I looove memes.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
A shooting with Vincenzo Laera! It was by a lake near Berlin. Swimming in ice cold water while trying to look cute is extremely hard, but still kind of fun.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Maybe my cat… I’m comfortable traveling.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I love Marc Jacobs. It’s cool, it’s fancy, It’s sexy – all the things you want to be. It would be almost equally as awesome to model for something like H&M or any other shops I usually shop for myself…

Place you would love to visit:
Singapore or Australia – because they are so far away, and warm and everything Norway is not.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
Again, RuPaul’s Drag Race. Did I mention it’s on Netflix?

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
If you don’t have to high hopes about something, you’ll never get disappointed. It may sound depressing, but it has saved me in so many situations. However, I am really looking forward to this year experiences. Maybe I’ll be walking for Marc Jacobs ;)
