What is your daily go-to fashion uniform?
I don’t have any uniform—it depends on the day and my mood.

How do you conceive of the term “model off-duty,” and how does that translate to your daily look?
Fashion is a profession. But this term is not translated into my life much. To me it’s a hashtag next to pictures of the girls in social networks.

What is your skin care regimen?
I visit my skin care specialist Julie Lindh a couple of times a month. She has created an amazing line of products that I use when I’m traveling.

What was the last book you read and loved?
“The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” by Robin Sharma.

Most prized possession?
The people that I love in my life.

Young designer you are most excited about?
There’s a new generation of Russian designers that are really good. And I also think young Scandinavian designers are doing very cool stuff.

Your best vintage find?
In Paris I found a Christian Dior dress from the Summer 1964 collection.

Who has most influenced you in the fashion world?
There are many people who have influenced me. Steven Meisel, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Emmanuelle Alt, Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang, Karl Templer… and many others.

Most memorable photo shoot?
Oh, there’s one shoot I will never be able to forget. It was an haute-couture editorial in February 2012. For some reason, the magazine decided to shoot on location in a field outside of Paris. The temperature outside was -16 Celsius (3 degrees Fahrenheit). I stayed professional until the end, modeling Spring clothes in the cold while the crew was wearing snow parkas. I will never forget that.

Three things you can’t live without?
Faith. Music. And, of course, beauty-care products!

What non-fashion magazines do you read on a monthly basis?
I prefer books; but sometimes I read the articles in Esquire and a cool Russian magazine called Russian Reporter.

Favorite juice spot?
Moon Juice in L.A., JugoFresh in Miami and Juice Press in NYC.
