Each week, we take the time to highlight one of our favorite emerging models. Previously, we profiled Noemi Kassa and this week we're turning our attention to Stella Bilanovic. We caught up with the budding beauty to talk about her career so far, her passion for modeling and her plans for the future.
Have you always wanted to be a model? If not, what did you want to be growing up?
I had plenty of visions and things I wanted to do when I grew up. Right now, some day I want to start study landscape architecture, but for me it depends on how my career as a mode will be.
How were you scouted?
I wasn't scouted. I had friends who where modeling and I always was interested in fashion so I applied by myself.
What is your favorite or most exciting aspect about being a model?
I'm an extrovert so I love meeting new people and also I just love how the vibe in this industry is.
Is there anyone that you admire as a role model and why?
I don't have an actual role mode but I adore Mica Arganaraz at the moment and the way she works.
What's been your biggest OMG moment to date?
I don't know I have them on the daily because my life is a movie somehow.
What is your dream shoot/campaign?
I want to be with Chanel, heliot Emil, gaultier, fendi and all of that one day.
Biggest lesson that modelling has taught you?
I definitely got more self consciousness since I started and it gave me lots of creativity again.
What's the best life advice you've ever received?
Just stay honest, especially to yourself and give positivity to your environment, because it also comes more back to you then. Your life will be wonderful.
How do you stay in shape?
I do workouts few times a week in combination with yoga and stretching. And I eat healthy.
What do you think about fashion? What does it mean to you?
It's just so much creativity in many different ways for me. I can't describe the feeling since I work in this industry. Everything is so individual.
If you had to be head to toe in one designer brand for the rest of your life, which would it be?
I think Chanel.
How would you describe your style?
I wear what makes me feel comfortable and pretty.
Denim or leather?
Heels or flats?
Vintage or contemporary fashion?
When you're not busy modeling, what are some of your favorite things to do?
I love to learn everything about my consciousness. I meet my friends, listen to good music. And I love being in nature!
What are you working on now and what do you dream of happening in the future?
I am working on myself to get 100% out of me.
Thank you, Stella, for taking the time to talk with us!
