What’s your best selfie tip? Play with the light. Turn towards the light and try different angles on your face. Play around, have fun and find what works best for you.

What’s the most fun modelling job you’ve ever done? I have so much fun on all my shoots it’s hard to pick just one. I’ve been lucky to work with so many amazing people, dancing and goofing around on set while still getting the job done. Modelling is definitely the most fun job I’ve ever had.

What’s the most terrifying job you’ve ever done? I once did a shoot with two lions, a cheetah and a zebra in South Africa, which was an amazing experience I’ll never forget. I also shot a TV commercial in South Africa where I had to do the ‘Tequila worm’, which means that they put a live worm in a glass, pour tequila on it and you have to do the shot before the worm dies. That was… interesting.

Do you have a dream designer handbag right now? Honestly, I am desperately looking for it as we speak. I’m very picky with bags. Have you got any suggestions Grazia?

WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST EXTRAVAGANCE? That’s easy: food and beauty products.

Can you tell us something that would surprise us about you? Where do I start? I love video games. I was a big “gamer” when I was younger. I used to practice Karate, as my dad is a Karate champion. I speak three languages fluently and for six years I went to music school. I can play the flute and sing.

Who or what’s your type? Hehe… I like someone humorous, charming, honest, adventurous and kind. Dark hair, eyes that tell a story and a smile that makes you melt. I am such a hopeless romantic.

What is top of your fashion wish-list this winter? The perfect leather jacket and boots. I’m obsessed with boots. I wore them on the beach in Thailand with my bikini.

Who is your best friend? Anna and Ellen are my best friends. It literally doesn’t matter how much time passes, we can just pick up where we left off and it’s like no time has passed. They are both extremely strong and beautiful, they inspire me a lot.

What would you be doing now if you weren’t a model? I would probably be in university studying some form of psychology.

Who do you miss the most when travelling for work? I wish I could put all my close ones in my pocket while I travel. I miss my friends a lot, and they are spread all over the world. And when travelling alone, I really miss my boyfriend.

What’s your best long-haul travel tip? Pack snacks like fruits or nuts, prep with a good book and good music, drink water and take the time to reflect and meditate. I love taking the time on my flight to disconnect and unwind a little bit from social media and constant connection.

Best pick up line you’ve ever heard? Oh dear, I love classic cheesy pick up lines like “You look like my future wife” and “Are you an angel?”.

When’s the last time you lost your temper? I was in Bali and a biker was carrying piglets in a bag and then dropped them! Broke my heart.

Is there anything you couldn’t live without? Exercise! I workout every day. Not just to look good, but to feel good.

What’s been your biggest life lesson so far? To love myself first. I spent a long time seeking love from others, trying to please those around me, instead of just cherishing the person who matters the most, the person inside.
