How did you first get into blogging & modeling?
I started modeling at the age of 15, spotted by a model scout in Milan.. traveling around the world for some years was probably the best time of my life so far. Only one year ago I started posting regularly on Instagram, beginning to enjoy stage-managing my own styles and sharing them with others.  

What inspired you to start your blog?
Friends of mine encouraged me to push it a little further and surprisingly soon my account began to prosper.

Who was your first style icon?
Oh that’s so difficult to say.. to be quite honest my very first style icon was probably posh spice, for I was a big fan of the spice girls as a child.

What or who is your current obsession?
I’m obviously totally obsessed with CHANEL, especially the vintage styles.. I just love to combine classy bouclé blazers (many of those inherited from my granny) with modern styles such as leather leggings and fancy boots for example.

How would you describe your personal style?
#vintage #chaneladdict #russianprincess #glamgrunge #preppy

What music track or album do you currently have on repeat?
Janis Joplin (over and over..)

What would you say that is the biggest challenge about fashion blogging (modeling)?
Just do it and don't let other people's opinion make you question what you're going to do.

If you could only wear one fashion line for the rest of your life - who would it be?
CHANEL <3 <3 <3

What would you say that is the greatest satisfaction of being a fashion blogger (model)?
I just LOVE fashion so much, that I’ll always enjoy everything associated to it. The power of fashion has always inspired me, so i’m always very glad and honored if people are interested or even inspired by my styles.

What advice to you have for other fashionistas looking to start their own blog or grow their Instagram accounts?
Always try to develop your very own style, that makes you feel comfortable.. mix and match old and new, casual and glam, casual and luxury according to your current state of mind. For me a great outfit, that makes me feel happy self-confident is the best precondition for a great and successful day.
