Interview: Model Gaëlle Lavy (France)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Gaëlle Lavy, I'm 19 years old, I’m French and I live in the South of France, in Toulouse. I am a student in psychology and I am a model. It's been around 2 years that I work as a model. Apart from that I am passionate about dance and scuba diving
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
For my personality, I am someone very stressed and anxious. I would like to change this gradually, take things less to heart. If not at the level of the physical, I consider that it is necessary to be well in his skin and refusing to do plastic surgery, I learn to like my body. What I like least physically about me, it would be my nose, but I do not want to change it so far.
How did you start modeling?
I do not know if I could say that they distinguish me from others, but I would say that my main qualities are my seriousness, my artistic sense, my ambition and my motivation. It is thanks to them that I arrive at my ends, and particularly in this environment (fashion), which made that I was able to advance
What do you think of the work as a model?
I started two years ago, I started with a photo contest and then I started making shoots from time to time. In the end I went back to the agency quite quickly and I was able to work as a fashion model.
What is your beauty regimen?
I will say that my best experiences were the Mondial de la coiffure in September 2018 and a creative shooting series in Switzerland this summer 2018. It was really a pleasure and really rewarding for me. agency quite quickly and I was able to work as a fashion model
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
For my part I make a big difference between my personal life and my life as a model. This is not something that I want to do as a main work, and I find it important to put things into perspective, to think that it is only an image and that it does not define me. I put a priority on my studies, but of course I like to blossom in this work of model, at the artistic level but also at the level of the experiences, travels ..
What are your plans for the future?
For me beauty is totally subjective. It is inside, and outside. Someone smiling for me will be much more handsome than someone cold and unfriendly. After of course, there is our society that claims to integrate models and canons of beauty, which I find are very far from reality.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
I am still young, but I would like that in the future, I work in the environment that fascinates me which is scuba diving. But I would also like not to lose this link that Ihave in the middle of fashion and also photography.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
The main advice that I will have to give to people who are new to this field would be to surround themselves well, and also to get acquainted with experienced people, to find a good competent agency to be supported and followed. I was alone in this environment and I met people who helped me, but also people I would have liked not to meet, harmful people, that can be avoided by learning.
