Be sure what you want and be sure about yourself. Fashion is not just beauty, it’s about good attitude. You have to believe in yourself and be strong.
Here in the big city people spend their time thinking about work and about money; they don’t give some value to friendships and it can be depressing.
I just think they’re really insecure about themselves sometimes. I know all the girls, but we all work a lot and don’t have time to hang out together. They’re all really nice; I’ve never had a problem with any model.
I like to go to the movies or read.
I missed out on everything. Sometimes on the street I see teenagers hanging out and going to the movies, going to concerts, and I get so jealous.
I used to be very shy. When I first started, I had to go to a casting, and I had to go in a bikini. I thought I was too skinny. But I went in and got the job! And that’s how I started.
I was in a fashion show and I had on a strapless top. When I got to the end the top was down.
I was so embarrassed about mispronouncing words. I just knew how to smile.
I would like just one time to be on the cover of Italian Vogue.
I’m a teenager, but I’m independent – I have my own apartment, I have my own life. And I think I have learned more than any of those teenagers have in school. I learned to be responsible, leaving my family and coming here alone.
I’ve never been to the gym. I do nothing.
If one day I have a daughter and my daughter wants to be a model, I would never let her!
If you look around Brazil you see pregnant women everywhere. Here you don’t see that as much. There the only thing they do is babies, babies, babies! Especially the poor families.
My favorite designer is Christian Lacroix, not just because his clothes are amazing and I love them, but because he’s so nice. When I did his fashion show, he was the first one to arrive there and he helped everyone.
When I get older, I don’t think I’ll like to have wrinkles, or a big jelly belly. I cannot have it.
You don’t have to have an attitude if you’re famous.
Younger guys are just too jealous.
Anger and hatred lead to fear; compassion and concern for others allow us to develop self-confidence, which breeds trust and friendship.Dalai Lama
