Tell us a little bit of yourself (Where are you from ? What do you like ?)

Well, I’m a down home girl from Canada. On my spare time I study by correspondence with my university in Canada, listen to music, view films, party a bit, and my newly rekindled love…playing cards!

How did you get started into modeling ? (Do you have been discovered or was modeling something for you that you always wanted to do ?)

Well, I ended up doing it a bit when I was younger but soon enough forgot about it once I started university, but in the spring I finished my first year my mother agency told me I should give it a go.

How would you describe yourself ?

It’s always a bit difficult to describe yourself I find but.. I would say I’m a bit of a comedian, easy going, passionate, driven…

Did you ever made any bad experiences in your career ?

I have had some bad experiences, temperature, crazy clients…

What is your impression of the business ?

You need to be careful how it effects you.
How did you feel when you have walked your first fashion show ?
Full of energy and excited!

You walked in fashion shows like Rad Hourand, Meadham Kirchhoff & Maison Martin Margiela. How did you get these show – do you went to the castings or do were booked directly ?

All apart of the crazy fashion week castings.
What are your wearing for castings ? And what is for you the most important thing that a model have to present herself well in the castings ?

I wear whatever I feel like that day, in Paris its a compromise, black, always. I think that the most important thing for a model to present herself at a casting is PERSONALITY.
Well, you have a great skin. Do you have for our readers any beauty secret ? Or do you use any special product for your skin ?

Thank you! Beauty secret…litres of water! However, i use this Liz Earle cleanser that is incredible, and the Sisley Flower Gel Mask.
What do you would like to do after modeling ?

Finish university, originally I wanted to work for the  government but now I’m really not sure, I am more and more compelled by the industry. But either way, gotta finish school!
The “CHOOSE ONE” questions:
Editorial or catwalk ?

Can I choose both? editorial I suppose, thats when i get to be creative.
Steven Meisel or Mario Testino ?

Givenchy or Balenciaga ?

London or New York ?

iPhone or Blackbery ?

Blackberry, bbm.
