Interview: Model Francesca Elena Leto (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
Hi everyone! I am Francesca and I am an italian model from Turin.Before modeling I’ve been acting in thatre and cinema, so, when i started posing, for me it was pretty easy. During my time as an actress, I soon realized that I enjoyed more working on the other side of the camera, so I started making advertising spots and short films. Beside that, i love painting and reading about famous artists’ lives
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
I’d like to be more able to work in group, because sometimes I feel like I don’t give people enought space to express themselves
How did you start modelling?
My carreer started when I was 11 years old. In the beginning, shooting for me was a funny game, people took care of me: hairstylist, dressers and Make Up artist were focused on every shape of my aspect.
What do you think of the work as a model?
Working as a model is a good way to expres yourself still there are many dangerous aspects, due to ambiguous people working in the business, such as molesters, exploiters and pleople who spread bad rumours.
What is your beauty regimen?
I don’t like having a beauty routine and i prefer to adapt to the situation, for exemple, when I am seeing my friends, I prefer not to put on any make-up, ‘cause I find it unnecessary when i hang out with people. Also, I noticed that my skin is healthier when I use less make-up
6 What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
Over time, I learned how to listen to people becoming gradually more empathic and helping them with there lifes problems
What are your plans for the future?
My goal is to become economically independent and to build a solid study base for the career I intend to pursue. At the moment, I am working to enhance my posing tecniques and become a modeling teacher for future models.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
One of the best experience I had so far, was a model sharing I organized for the asotiation ONLUS “La Lega Italiana Per la Difesa Del Gatto”, during wich I had the chance to confront myself with other models and photographers.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
First of all, it is very important to be confident with yourself, to keep a solid moral ethic not to accept anything devaluating, being able to estimate jobs proposals, in order not to ruin your career.
What do you think of the magazine?
That magazine is a good way to know each other and keep connected. the magazine also offers many ideas for new sets.
