Our exclusive interview with gorgeous Italian model and Influencer Claudia Romani.
Claudia has appeared on covers such as GQ and Maxim, and in 2006 was voted one of the 100 Sexiest Women in the World by FHM Denmark.
Hi Claudia, please you tell us a little about you?
I am an Italian girl… studied languages, traveled the world.. I have always been a go getter and I am very ambitious. I lived in Denmark, England and now Miami. I started modeling in Denmark in 2004 and never stopped since.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Ambitious, perfectionist, determined
Name one your strengths?
I am stubborn… can be good and bad though
Do you have a role model?
Not in the public eye. Just my parents.. their hard work and always doing the right thing… So hard in this society.
Who has been the biggest influence on your life?
My parents and grandparents. Italian families are the best
When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to rescue cats… and somehow I do that 🙂 I got into modeling to become influential and be a voice for those who don’t have it
How and when did you start into modeling?
In Denmark on the beach, when an FHM talent scout asked me to be in their contest.
What advice would you give to women trying to become models?
Just do it if your true passion, if you can take rejection… and if you are ready to work hard without always having rewards. I wouldn’t do anything else though
What did you learn from your biggest failure?
That things always turn and you have to support people at their good and at their worst. It happens to everyone.
Also sometimes getting up and starting again without giving up is the key to success.
Best advice you have followed?
To believe in myself
What is your own definition of happiness?
Being with the person I love , helping cats in need… traveling the world.. doing the job I love…
But most of all feeling inner peace, that makes you feel ok in every situation.
Do you support any charities?
I always donate to the Pets on Death Row. I sell items used for shoots and merchandise to donate for the cause.
Can you describe a typical day in your life?
I don’t have a typical day.. every shoot is different and challenging. When not working I workout , spend lots of time working on my social media and answering email… spend lots of time with my love… going for walks, nice vegetarian dinners and movies.
What’s the advice you live by?
Be yourself. It always pays off long term.

With my boyfriend Chris… on an helicopter ride or traveling and discovering.
