I’ve been working on a new segment for a while, and its finally here:Stalking Models.
Stalking Models is as it says, I’ll be bring you interviews and photos, all the news from the horse’s mouth, that is straight from the models, oh they look nothing like horses; its an expression!
Why? Because we all love a PRETTY face, No?
Without further ado, I bring to you, lostintalent’s first model feature,Nicole Zaira Miller, aspiring UK based model.
What three words best describe you? Eccentric. Down to Earth. Caring.
Well I got scouted at first, into an agency, I worked with a lot of people, and then my contract ended with the modelling agency, and then they wanted me to sign another but I refused because the ratio of the money they were getting from mine was far too much. So I decided to do individual work with a lot of photographers that I had already met.
What are the best and worst bits about being a model? Best is the clothes, getting your hair, and make up done. The worst is the stress of being places on time, dealing with people you don’t like, and trying to stay professional at all times.
How do you deal with all the trials: tough times? Yeah they are nerve wrecking but you learn to cope with them and how to deal with them the more you go to them.
What are your aspirations? To get big!
Who is your all time favourite model? Adriana Lima, she is my inspiration! Why? Her beauty is unbearable and through her work you can tell she has that model quality naturally. She is also Brazilian which links to me; I’m part Brazilian.
What do you usually wear off duty? I usually wear anything I like. I don’t have a specific style, I follow what I like, I could go into one shop and like something from there and buy it, then go into a complete opposite shop that I’d just been in and buy something I like from there. My taste varies.
What pieces have you just wanted to steal from shoots/shows?Nearly all of them.
Favourite label? Vivienne Westwood
Favourite country to work in: England
What is the funniest or most exciting or embarrassing thing that has happened in your career so far? I had to wrap a sheet around me for a shoot, and it accidentally fell off and I didnt have anything underneath, but I quickly pulled it up again, we all laughed and there was other models watching too. But it was no biggy.
How do you stay trim? I don’t really exercise I just have a lot of fruit which I enjoy eating and I love salads too. But I also eat a lot of junk food, I have a fast metabolism.
If you’re trying to reach whatever you want to reach, it’s possible.Hard work pays off. Always.
