Interview: Cover Girl Chloé François (France)

Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Chloé, I’m 30. French actress and model, based in Paris. I worked as a model for ten years worldwide. Passionate by travelling , nature & animal. Matcha (*my small dog) is my partner in crime and follows me everywhere! Besides the shootings, I also love singing and dancing. My passions are everything that thrilled me : especially the cinema and theater ! My motto in life may be “Always look on the bright side of life”.

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

Good question! At the beginning of my career I would have answered that I would love to be taller. But after few years, I realized that my height could also be a strength. Today I wouldn’t change anything, except maybe being less impatient sometimes!

How did you start modeling?

First of all, I moved to Paris to study at “Court Florent” Drama School. Shortly after my arrival, I have been knocking on agencies’ doors for a living. I was lucky enough that an agency gave me a chance : my first agency was “Crystal Models”, ten years ago. My agent built me a Portfolio and I started castings very fast.

What do you think of the work as a model?

Modeling is a beautiful work! Travelling so much and meeting lots of people is such an enriching experience.

Not as easy as most of people imagine it, but a model life is always full of new challenges and no day is like another. I think that a model must be very rigorous, determined, patient, flexible, creative, balanced and enduring.

What are your plans for the future?

I am now an actress and I would love to work on Movies and Tv Shows. I am represented by Alexandra Schamis (AS Talents) in France and by Hamel Ziane (Artist International Group) in the United States. Recently, I played in a short movie directed by Arnaud Mizzon : “Dernière Ligne Droite” which is nominated in Alpes d’Huez Film Festival in January 2020. I am confident for the future!

What is your beauty regimen?

My beauty routine is quite simple. The routine is in 3 Steps (twice a day) :

- first, I wash my face and neckline with the milk « Hydrabio Bioderma » on a washable organic cotton pad.

- secondly, I rince the milk residual with some spays of spring water. My dermatologist advises me to stop washing my face with tap water (too agressive, irritant). I use a reusable spray “Brumessentielle Aromandise”, very easy to refill with pure water, and without propellant gas. This spray bottle perfectly imitate the disposable ones we all know (as Evian/Avènes/La Roche Posay), and it is good for the planet ! Then, carrefully dab it dry with a smooth towel

- Thirdly, as I have a very thin & sensitive skin, I try to protect it as much as I can. So I hydrate and nourish my face with the serum and rich cream « Hydrance » Avènes.

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I would say that I’m proactive! I like to suggest emotions and attitudes during a shooting.

For the rest, a casting remains a subjective choice. After doing your best when you meet the client for a job, it’s really important to let go.

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

My favorite experience as a model was the campaign Shooting for “Mademoiselle Azzaro” fragrance. I embodied a young lady dancing in a Castel full of pink roses. I was enjoying the sun and the beautiful view on the Tour Eiffel, such a refreshing mood!

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

Girls, be ca-re-ful at the beginning! You need to be sure about the people you decide to trust in. It includes the photographer you will choose for your first test, which agency to sign with, etc. Read carefully your contracts and If you’re too young always ask your parents to go with you. The most important thing is to work on a safe and respectful atmosphere. Above all, if you are able to fit in the models criteria it’s wonderful , if not, stay yourself! I’d be pleased to answer any questions on Instagram ;-)

What do you think of the magazine?

To me “Modellenland Magazine” is a beautiful support for Fashion with great Editorial content! It gives us the chance to share much more than pictures , through the interviews. Such an honor to be part of it this month.
