Describe yourself in 3 words?

Humble, self motivated, determined.

Name one your strengths?

I would say that one of my biggest strengths are that I’m very self motivated when it comes down to my goals & dreams in life.

Best advice ever given?

Stay humble no matter what. No matter how known you get to the world, no matter what you own, no matter how many big things happen to you. Those things can be taken just as fast as you got it. So appreciate it and stay humble.

How and when did you start into modeling?

I was 15, without a clue what kind of career I wanted to pursue, when my mother mentioned modeling because people would tell me I was photogenic. At first, I was very hesitant just because I was afraid of being judged about my photos due to getting bullied bad in school. She pushed me to get over my fear and go to a open call in Lafayette,La. I was picked in the top 5 out of 150 women. That is when I got the opportunity to go through modeling training and also got the opportunity to walk on the run way. They put together my first modeling shoot and introduced me to a few agents. It was a amazing experience, however, it did not work out for me with this company.

The most important thing when you are shooting is?

The eyes are the main focal point I would say… you have to make sure they are opened up to capture a great image

What is your advice for newer models?

My advice would be to build yourself up first. Do as many photoshoots as you can with different photographers, with different styles. Make sure you have all the content you need to be represented. Create a website- create a one sheet- create a comp card – create a foundation so when you try to start your career it won’t be so difficult to get started. Some of things I did not know I needed until my manager told me recently when I met her. If I would have known these things 5 years ago. It would have helped me tremendously.

What’s next for Chelsie Deville in 2020?

Well I’m going to focus on just being better as a model in general. As far as poses, postures, diets, exercises. I’m going to do as many photoshoots as I can. I’m going to try to get my name and face more out there into the world.

Which magazine or project is still on your bucket list?

Vogue magazine is definitely on my bucket list but it’s a honor to be in any of them!

In five years from now, where do you see yourself and your career?

I see myself potentially working with a modeling agency, doing fashion shows, doing commercial/print work. I’m a very determined person. I put 100% effort into everything I do in life to try and achieve my goals.

Now talking about Instagram, can you share some tips for keeping your account interesting?

I post daily, I try to stick to a certain filter, I ask questions when I post, I respond to my followers! I always have new styles to bring to the table!

What is your own definition of happiness?

My definition of happiness is just creating a great life for my son, for my family. I don’t want to have to struggle. As long as my family is happy and healthy.. I’m happy.

Idea of a perfect Sunday?

Spending quality time with my family, rather it’s fishing or staying home and watching movies together. I couldn’t ask for better.

What book should every entrepreneur read?

Train your brain for success

What does fashion mean to you?

I believe fashion is important because you can tell someone’s personality just by the clothes they wear.. it speaks for itself.

What music do you like?

I like a lot of different kinds of music.. country, rock and hip hop

How would you explain your fashion style?

This one is tough for me because I have a few different styles. I love the edgy look for sure or kinda like punk rock look.
