Halo Berge (yes, that is my real name, and yes, Beyoncé wrote a song about me)
Place of Origin:
Swedish, German, Irish & Polish
My New York agency scouted me this summer
What was your first modeling job?
My first job was debuting as a worldwide exclusive for the Celine SS19 show in Paris! Hedi Slimane was so humble to work with on his first collection for Celine. Couldn’t have dreamed of a better first job, and big thanks to Ben Grimes for making it happen.
I am not the “typical” model when it comes to off-duty activities, haha.. I love camping, fishing and playing video games.
What are you listening to at the moment?
I’m mostly into 80’s style music.. my favorite artists include Aerosmith, Michael, Bon Jovi, and Van Halen.
Favorite movie, tv show:
STRANGER THINGS.. I’m addicted to that show. Riverdale and Gotham make close seconds.
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
My favorite beauty product is “Face Atelier” foundation. My skin is very fair and Face Atelier is the only foundation I have found that has shades to match my skin.
What were you doing before modeling?
I was in college getting my associate degree in Science
What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
If I weren’t modeling, I would be going to school to get my degree in Marine Science. I have wanted to be a Marine Biologist ever since I was young… Shark Week was my favorite week of the year, haha.
What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
MARVEL/DC COMICS. I’m into all those nerdy comic book superheroes.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
Walking in the Miu Miu SS19 show in Paris. It was a dream walking for an icon like Miuccia Prada, and I couldn’t have been more grateful to Anita Bitton and Katie Grand for that opportunity.
What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
Living in the Midwest has lots of nature, so I love the peacefulness it brings after being busy in the city.
Which brand would you really love to model for?
Gucci, Alexander Wang, Saint Laurent and Marc Jacobs (just can’t choose between these 4!)
Place you would love to visit:
Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
POKÉMON. I have been playing ever since I was young. I have every single game starting with the Gameboy Pokémon Red Version to Pokémon Ultra Moon.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Everything happens for a reason and that timing is everything (especially in the fashion industry!)
