When did you start your career as a model?
My first job was when I was 15 for Elle in brazil. I started modelling full time with 17
Why did you want to be a model?
I love fashion, I always wanted to work with it as model or not
How do you spend your time when not working?
I swim and do yoga. I love to get my cameras and go out on the streets shooting ordinary scenarios of life. Also love reading in a nice coffee shop.
It’s hard to tell. There are two that really impressed me. A shooting I did in Brazil with Mario Testino and the editorial for Elle when I was 15, because that was the first time I saw myself as a woman and not a little naive girl.
I better not tell
Self service, Love, Dazed, Garage.
It’s hard to choose only one. I like some labels and concepts like Wang, Hermes, Celine, Acne
It’s Adam Custins, a dear friend that did teach me a lot about photography, every shoot he takes its a poesy of image.

Now and always, Green Day
What is your “guilty pleasure”-music?
