Interview: Model Mendy Moss (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
I am Mendy Moss but my real name is Martina Meneghini . I live in Venice but I travel to the world.
I am an Italian professional model from 18 years old and now also an Influencer using my Instagram mendy__moss. I’m A Rider , my first passion and sport is horse riding . My horse is Brigitte a lady from Paris 11 years old and with her gallop and jumping .
I practice horse riding because it relaxes me I hate the gym and I prefer to spend time with myself, nature and the soul of a horse ❤️
I’m a founder of MOSS my new brand from 2021 and I have activated my e-commerce www.mendymoss.com with shipments throughout Italy if you want to spy and why not buy !
I am also a mother and proud of my little Miss Emma 9 years old who also started with photo shoots.
If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
in a society that aims for perfection and aesthetic surgery, I remain true as my mother made me. I wouldn't change anything, I'm lucky enough to love myself with my imperfections.
How did you start modelling?
I star at 15 years old , my parents always indulged me and accompanied me to casting and agencies. I was chosen for the facial features and at 18 I started working for the Italian channel but I realized that my world was posing and modeling and not television.
What do you think of the work as a model?
This job has helped me a lot to love myself and to give me self-esteem, character and awareness. I found myself in the spotlight from an early age and sometimes under pressure: perfect wo makeup poses and away immediately under the eyes of everyone! I was traveling alone air trains new people every day, the honor of meeting important professional VIP actors of the show! all great! I have always felt like a protagonist but it has not always been easy! at times I had a crisis but with the help of close people and selecting the jobs I found the joy of this job!
What is your beauty regimen?
Fortunately thanks to my work every week I am a guest as a model in beauty salons and I am always in order. I take care of the skin a lot with specific cleansing and creams. otherwise a healthy sport like horse riding keeps me slim and relaxed from tensions without specific diets or the need for a gym. let's say I'm also lucky. my mother is a beautiful woman even now and I look a lot like her.
What are your personal qualities which distinguish you from others?
When I pose I always express all of myself and communicate a lot with my eyes. I am very expressive and sensitive
What are your plans for the future?
First of all I want to have another child because I believe a lot in the family and after my modeling career my goal is to become a psychotherapist to help others. I will also continue my e-commerce with my Moss project, which I have registered the trademark exclusively.
What are some of your favorite experiences so far?
My best experiences have been photo shoots abroad. In London I worked with various important brands traveling around the city for street shots. my other best job was in Santorini where I posed on the island for brands of bikinis, sunglasses and clothing. a great satisfaction then was an advertising campaign with a giant poster with my photo hanging everywhere. actually I have many other beautiful experiences but these have remained in my heart.
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modelling?
Always believe in yourself: the first thing to achieve as a model is to love each other and have confidence in us! rely on serious agencies without ever spending money because if you are worthy as a model, others invest in you! for me it was like that! also do not fixate on perfection, I have worked a lot thanks to my particularities or defects and I have always tried to convey emotions and interpretation to every mood and type of work.
What do you think of the magazine?
I have always loved this magazine! fantastic covers of pure fashion
models always of great prestige and fantastic contents! I am honored to be published here and to be able to talk about myself.
