Interview: Model Lucy Alter (France)

Can you tell us a little about you?

All my friends would say that I've always been a very sunny person. They'd also laugh saying I'm an enigma even to my own mother, and I must admit, this is the truth ! My personality is very changing regarding my environment or the people I'm interacting with. I can seem rather reserved at first sight, but once I'm at ease, I become a real chatterbox. I'm also very energetic, addicted to challenges. My brain is in constant turmoil, I desperately need to create, innovate, surpass myself daily, or at least  try new things. I can't stand still! I'm still testing my limits, whether in art, sport or my professional life. As for my personal life, I come from a large family, and am in fact the eldest of 4 children. So I've always had a lot of responsibility on my shoulders, and no matter how difficult it is, I manage to overcome all my problems in an original and anecdotal way. Today, I'm witnessing an extraordinary turn in my own life, with a brand-new career in

modelling. I can't wait to see what the future holds for me.

 

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

If I could change something about me, I guess it would be my feet. Especially my toes. I have two large odd feet, with a very small scar on the left one. Even if no one can see them (even the photographers never notice my funny toes), it still makes me very uncomfortable). Now if I had the ability to change something about my personality, I would probably choose to stay the same. I am definitely not confident about myself, I struggle to feel pretty or cool enough in society, but my flaws define me. I’d rather be a nerd than being ordinary.

 

How did you start modelling?

I started out in modeling in a rather anecdotal way. I was on the terrace of a bar after work with my uncle. I was sipping my cocktail when suddenly a man I had never seen before shouted "Wow! I looove your hair!". We started chatting, as he was a photographer and loved my profile. I agreed to shoot for him, and today here I am! That photographer, Kevin, has since become one of my best friends.

 

What do you think of the work as a model?

According to me, being a model is first and foremost being an artist. It's a magnificent form of expression through the raw material that is the body, which we embellish through various techniques, styles and outfits. We create through the image we project. As I like to say, art isn't made to be beautiful. Being a model or an artist is much more than that. Art is about making us feel something. And that's what I try to do during my shoots.

 

What is your beauty regimen?

I don't really have strict instructions. I like to use organic, eco-responsible and local products. I'm very careful with my skin, I try to get rid of stress on a daily basis through meditation and gym, and I drink a lot of water, at least two bottles a day. I use a lot of essential oils, natural products that I make myself and homemade skincare products. I'm trying to learn to listen to my body, to understand its needs and warning signals.

 

What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?

I think the personality trait that sets me apart from the rest would be my ability to be far more human than the average person. I've learned to listen, to notice, and I'm often described as being particularly lucid.

 

What are your plans for the future?

In the future, I'd like to do fashion shoots for top designers. I'd also like to do more cinematographic content, maybe even commercials, for a cosmetics brand for example.

 

What are some of your favorite experiences so far?

My favorite shoot was the collaboration with Paloma Casile, a top-quality Parisian lingerie brand. The make-up artist who worked with me was extraordinary, the renderings are gorgeous, the outfits were really exquisite, I loved every part of it.

 

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

The best advice I could give would be "dare!". Quite simple. Don't think, don't put up barriers or preconceived ideas. You have to try, whatever your aspirations, your experiences in the fashion or art world, or your morphology. Modeling is for everyone, and it's a very rich environment. However, you have to be prepared and believe in yourself before taking the plunge.

 

What do you think of the magazine?

In my opinion, this magazine is a real goldmine for up-and-coming careers. It gives young artists the visibility and credit they need to succeed. It's been a great opportunity for me, and I'm very grateful. This magazine inspires and motivates, and I recommend it to everyone around me!
