Interview: Model Izabella Ciapa (Poland)(Cover Girl Lookbook 43)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Izabella Ciapa, born in Wrocław, in Poland and still live here. I’m a student on Wrocław University and I’m working as a Accountant – Vendor Master Data Specialist.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
For now…I think I’m too happy to change anything. But sometimes I think I’m too productive. I do a lot of things at once, forgetting that I’m only a human not a machine. Some of my friends tell me “Iza, stop it. You need to chill and do something for yourself to just relax”. I never listen to them.
How did you start modeling?
My first photoshoot was about 7 years ago with my friend. She always wanted to be a photographer and she took me as a model for her first shots. At that moment I realized that I’m really photogenic and I felt that is what I want to do in my life as a passion. So I really want to thank her that she gave me a oppurnity to find myself in modeling.
What do you think of the work as a model?
It’s really exacting. I don’t like when people said “Why are you tired? You just need to stand there and looks perfect”. No! It’s hard, to stand properly. You need to know how your body looks in different ways. You need to know how to stand to look good.
You need to always be focused.
It’s all about details.
What is your beauty regimen?
Once a week I need to done my nails. That’s all.
I do nothing with my face, no cosmetics, no maskara…only if I have a bad day and need to feel better. I prefer natural look, no make up - just smile.
And I need to have some lipstick in my pocket specially when it’s cold outside.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
I’m really talkative. Don’t like to be such a professional at sessions. I prefer to smile, make fun of everything and take some good shots. I have really great mimcry. I can express myself on photos. I always try to make friends with people that I worked with.
I think I’m unique because of my authenticity.
What are your plans for the future?
I just want to be happy, finish my studdies, get promotions and of course always do some awesome projects in modeling, bigger and bigger!
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
Favorites and the biggest experiences are my photoshoots for ELLE and Glamour Magazine.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
You need to be confident about your skills. Remember that we’re all unique. Never, ever compare yourself to other models. Focus on your passion, do many sessions and do it for fun!
What do you think of the magazine?
I have seen a lot of photos on Modellenland site that are perfect, professional and breathtaking. I’m glad that I can be a part of this magazine. Thank you so much!
