Interview: Model Ines Angelova (Netherlands)

Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Ines Angelova, I am a model but most people know me as a social media personality. Currently I travel the World together with my boyfriend who actually is a photographer and my work partner in crime. At such a young age (20) I already have seen more than half of the world and we still keep on traveling, which is also a must when you are a model. Languages are one of my biggest talent since I am from Bulgaria,but grew up in Holland and half of my family is in the US. Currently I can count more than 5 languages in my vocabulary and still counting haha as I love adapting new cultures. My soul food is gym,kickboxing and yoga. I love staying active, it really keeps me motivated.

If you could change anything about yourself what would it be?

Haha my looks or personality? Hmm... Iʼd love to be more patient sometimes and a bit less impulsive. I am really hot tempered person. But when it comes to my looks I am happy to

say I am more than satisfied with myself. As all women should be! However I really like experimenting with new looks on me and working hard in the gym.

How did you start modeling?

Itʼs actually really funny that I am a model now because I am named after a very famous Spanish model from the 90ʼs. Her name is Ines Sastre. Not many people know that about me but I think it really wasnʼt a coincidence!! And ever since I was very Young creating was always a passion of mine. I wanted to be an actress then designer and then suddenly modeling came into my life. I got asked by couple of friends to help them with some modeling and it started as a hobby at first but then I could really feel the connection with the job and the camera. Later on I started my instagram and thatʼs how I got bigger with modeling.

What do you think of the work as a model?

Modeling has really taught me a lot. Traveling all the time, meeting new people and experiencing new stuff is amazing! It also teaches you a lot about life... you get to see it from a whole different perspective. Itʼs one of the best creative jobs I couldʼve ask for, but is not for everyone. It comes with a lot of stress, attention and traveling. And some people really

cannot handle all the pressure. But for me is thrilling and T.U.


What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

Everyone can agree on the fact that I am extremely social! I am here and I am there...hahah

I just really love getting to know people and their stories, which makes people feel comfortable around me very fast. Itʼs good when you work in my industry. I am stubborn as well... I never give up no matter what. Last but not least I stay very true to myself. In the modeling industry thereʼs a lot of pressure to be someone else or do what others tell you. But I follow my rules and my true self. Staying true to myself is something my mom taught me. She always says: “strong personality really makes a person stand out from all the others”.

What is your beauty regimen?

As cliché as it sounds my number 1 beauty must is hydration. I drink lots of water. Stay hydrated!! A second must for me is enough sleep and gym, those are really my favorites. I use many products with spf in it, face serums aswell. Mario Badescuʼs products are my holy grail and lotʼs of oils. Hair oil, body oil, coconut oil... and of course vitamin D straight from the sun! I love spending my time somewhere warm and sunny it makes me feel fresh and alive.

What are your plans for the future?

I like to live in the moment. If I plan itʼs only for the upcoming few months. Of course success in the career and happiness is in the plan but I like to keep it mysterious haha

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

For me is still really exciting when I see myself in a magazine or a website. After a few years I still canʼt get used to it, but I love it. Also I have met so many interesting and (famous) people it really inspires me. And of course I still smile thinking of the amazing friends and memories I have with the friends I made along the way. Is priceless for me. But of course the most exciting is all the upcoming projects and experiences I have yet to experience.

Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?

My only advice for those who want to start modeling is to stay true to themselves and keep on

trying. Thereʼs no wrong way after all, only your way.Of course doing your best is a must in this business in order to stand out people appreciate hard work. But donʼt be too harsh with yourself if it doesnʼt work immediately. Just see what works for you and give the process some time.

What do you think of the magazine?

I love the whole concept of the magazine, I think is fantastic! A podium for all kinds of talents to show what they can. Love it!
