Interview: Model Estelle Roger (Czech Republic)

Can you tell us a little about you?

Well, My name is Estelle Roger. I am half Czech half French and was born and raised in the United States. I am a freelance model and a full-time business student. I have lived in five different countries before my 25th birthday. I guess you can say kind of go where the wind blows me.

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

We are all constantly changing, I believe that is the meaning of life, to be better than you were yesterday. I intend to further challenge myself and find the best in me, wherever that might be. Perhaps I aim to gain more trust in myself and more emotional independence. I feel that we all need to build ourselves up, with whatever tools we have at our disposal.No matter what you are going through, self-love can conquer it all.

How did you start modeling?

When I about 18 years old an Austrian photographer scouted me for a fashion photoshoot, it truly sparked an interest in me. After this photoshoot, other photographers reached out to me, which led to more photoshoots. Then my more professional modeling career began when I was 19 and I was a finalist of a national beauty competition in the Czech Republic (Maturantka roku). I represented my region (which was Prague and its surrounding areas). With this competition, I have signed which a nationwide known agency and things started to become more serious, and here I am, 5 years later.

What do you think of the work as a model?

Working as a model has truly changed my life, already from my first photo shoot. In my early adolescence, I had gone through some turbulent times, I was teased for the way I looked and for being a foreigner. Modeling gave me back control of how I perceive myself and empowered me to display my one true self to the world, and to not allow anyone to suppress my true essence.

What is your beauty regimen?

I like to start off with cleaning my face with mild face soap, or facial scrub. I then apply organic rose oil to my face, to hydrate my skin, reduce signs of aging, and minimize the appearance of scars. I then continued with a light water-based eye cream and a mattifying day cream. Recently I have been trying to wear less makeup, as I am trying to even further embrace my natural beauty, and showcase my freckled face to the world. I therefore only concentrate on neutral-toned eye makeup and a light contour.

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

On the surface, I believe my fiery red hair and freckles are definitely unique. Everywhere I go I am usually the only redhead, this feature has definitely helped me stand out in the modeling world. As for my character, I consider myself to portray quite the intense spirit, I am edgy, funny, and I am not afraid to show my weirder side.

What are your plans for the future?

I recently graduated from a University here in Amsterdam. My final thesis was centered around crowd management and how municipalities can expand their zones of interest, for a more sustainable flow of people. I will soon be moving to the United Kingdom where I will be pursuing my master’s degree in International business management and entrepreneurship at Oxford Brookes University.

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

Well, recently I have been accepted as a contestant for the Miss Czech Republic. This has been such an honor and a dream come true for me. Over the years I also have the chance to work with an array of brands, designers, MUAs, and photographers who had inspiring visions. All of these experiences were special to me in their own way. However, one of my favorite ‘’jobs’’ so to say was the runway work that I did for L’Oreal, or the photoshoot I did for selmark lingerie.

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

Before, you take any big steps in your modeling career, ensure that you are emotionally stable, and can be resilient to feedback that professionals will give you. People in the industry can be cruel and with a lot of praise can come to a lot of criticism. Modeling truly is a double-edged sword, and anyone who enters it must have a thick enough skin to be able to deal with anything the industry can strike at you.

What do you think of the magazine?

I think it’s an amazing platform that shines a light on an array of interesting models and photographers. The pictures are also very dynamic, vibrant, and distinctive. I feel grateful to be featured in such an interesting magazine.
