How discovered:
I was discovered in the street of my hometown, Lyon, going to school.

What was your first modeling job?
It was a campaign for shoes in Milan, so we couldn’t see my face, ahah. But it was super nice, it helped me to understand how a shooting is going on and the role of all the people on set.

Favorite things:
Travelling for sure, I love to discover new places, new culture, new food, new people, new everything. I’m very curious.

What are you listening to at the moment?
Actually, I’m listening Sexy Back by Justin Timberlake. I just listened to it recently and I fell again in love.

Favorite movie, tv show:
I love movies, I have so many favorite ones but top 3 maybe it will be Pearl Harbor, Leon, and Mommy.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
It’s a hard question, I can found some good pieces in every designer. I love to mix up. But Isabel Marant I think is one of my favorites. And I’m wearing Coco Chanel for 8 years I think.

What were you doing before modeling?
I was studying communication and I was doing a lot of sports: athletics, gymnastics. I was training a lot.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I think I will work as an event manager, or maybe I will be on a farm in Uruguay.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I always do sudoku on the plane. I buy a book and I feel so smart, ahah.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
It was the shoot for Elle France one year and a half ago when they cut my hair on set. I didn’t expect that at the end of the day I would have a boyish haircut. I was so shocked that I did it! I was looking my hair on the floor, it was crazy! It was one of my first editorial and actually the one which changed everything.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
The food! Lyon is the capital of gastronomy! You got the best chefs, best products, and the best saucisson! I recommend everybody to go there (it’s only 2 hours by train from Paris)

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I would love to work for YSL, I love everything about this brand. And also to work with legendary photographers. I love editorials.

Place you would love to visit:
I will love to visit Egypt, I’m a fan of their culture, their history, the pyramides. And at the same time, I will love to go to Iceland and visit the volcanoes.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I’m obsessed with the sun, palm trees, drinking cocktail on the beach, surf. My body needs sun, I feel so white.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Don’t compare yourself to others. Live your life and enjoy it!
