Interview: Model Ana Stepanov (Serbia)

Can you tell us a little about you?

Hi.. my name is Ana. I was born in Serbia, and I’m a model.

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

If I could change anything about myself (which I consider I should), that would already be changed. J ..But, I’m constantly trying to improve myself, my skills, my work and to learn new things that I think are important.

How did you start modelling?

I never thought I would be a model, it happened spontaneously. I went to the local Miss Summer competition and won the crown. I really enjoyed walking on runway while following the rhythm of a music, it made me happy. After finishing my university, I realized that people should do what they like, not what they’ve been told it is good for them. So I went to one modelling agency and started modelling, a bit late, but I was lucky that, on my first trip, I’ve met Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima who encouraged me with wise words: “It is never too late.” That really gave me will to continue modelling.

What do you think of the work as a model?

Modelling, as any other job, has both sides, the beautiful one and the difficult one. If you really enjoy camera, posing, walking and constant traveling then it is worth all the effort.

What is your beauty regimen?

My beauty regimen is to rest and eat. If person is fresh and rested, it has power to get through the day and accomplish what’s on her mind. Sleeping is really important.

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I believe everyone has some sort of qualities which make them different, for me is feeling the rhythm and having the right energy for every fashion show. I’m able to walk in many ways, making good expression for each show, so It usually happens that I’m the one opening or closing it. Photographers also think that I’m creative it happens that they suggest me to do whatever I feel like doing at the moment, to manipulate with things and objects around me, I’m adapting really easily in every environment no matter if the shooting is indoors or somewhere outside on the street, or in nature. I’m able to improvise as long as they don’t make a perfect shot, and I’m having much fun doing it. Being creative with poses and feeling the rhythm of environment are things that make me different in this job.

What are your plans for the future?

My plan for the future is to travel as much as I can and do modelling until 60, then retire. Haha.

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

My favorite experiences are those 2 minutes spent on the runway for each show.

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

My advice would be: Appreciate yourself, always give your best at work and respect your needs. Also be careful with who you sign contracts. Enjoy the process of learning and experiencing.

What do you think of the magazine?

I am pleasantly surprised that you contacted me for an interview, that was very nice gesture. I like how it is assembled and I wish much luck to all the editors. Thank You very much. (Ana Stepanov)
