I believe modeling is a combination of natural talent, the ability to adapt to different situations, hard work, and most importantly, luck.
My job involves a lot of sitting on aeroplanes and a lot of walking in high heels! I find yoga helps with both.
I also wanted the magazine to be about very ambitious, very strong women and so I started looking at people in my field — especially the photographers who are so incredible — but I started thinking that there are so few female photographers; so I worked with many female photographers.
The best models in the industry are the ones who feel comfortable on the set. If she doesn't feel comfortable, the images won't be beautiful.
Modeling is an incredible job for a girl if she approaches it with her head on her shoulders. You travel, you speak to people, and it opens your mind to different things.
