How did you get started in Modeling?
I started modeling because when I was 15 years old, one of my closest friends was a photographer and he asked me if I wanted to take a couple pictures for his portfolio and since then I never stopped taking photos and working for different brands.
Anything funny that happened during a casting?
Once I went to a casting with my daughter and when the director saw both of us, asked which of us was the mother and who was the daughter. It was a really funny situation because we both look really similar since I had my daughter when I was just 15.
What does fashion mean to you?
For me fashion goes further than just how you look, trends and clothes. I believe it’s something you have to feel inside, it’s a lifestyle.
Who is your biggest beauty inspiration?
One of my biggest inspirations is JLO because she’s a empowered women, really successful and always accomplishes everything she proposes, also she’s a gorgeous women.
What are your goals as a model?
I have many goals, and I always aim to be a better version of myself.
Who are some of your favorite models and designers, and why?
One of my favorite models is Ninoska Vazquez, she’s such a beautiful and talented model and she’s always on trend. Also my favorite designers are Philipp Plein, I’m in love with his designs, the skulls, the shinning touch he adds to all his apparel its incredible.
How did you stay fit?
I try to have a really healthy diet and of course doing my daily routine of exercise. It helps me getting rid of stress and staying in shape at my age.
How do you feel about the controversy of the size 0 in the industry?
We live in the 20 century and we shouldn’t use this type of sizes as examples. That’s unhealthy and it creates really bad habits in the young crowd and a lot of insecurities. They should promote healthy bodies to inspire the others.
What is fun and rewarding about modeling?
Every photoshoot it’s different and its really pleasant knowing new photographers, models, designers, etc. that can help me improving for becoming a better model and version of myself in the modeling world.
And what do you dislike?
Sadly, there is a lot of envy between models, also some directors forget that we are also humans and they treat people as objects, but leaving this to the side, in my opinion I have been blessed with more positive moments then negative.
What other modeling projects have you done?
I have done a variety of photoshoots for international brands and designers, also I was able to create my own lingerie brand “Adriana Pino Lingerie” which I’m the face of the brand, different movie roles in Mexico and Colombia and being honored with interviews in important magazines like Cosmopolitan, Vanidades, ELLE, etc.
Name one beauty product you can’t live without?
I cant live without my cream from “La prairie”. It’s a Swiss made brand.
What’s your advice for the newer models?
Always believe in yourself, aim for short term and long term goals and start working on them every day. That’s the key to accomplish them all with hard work and dedication. Some days you may feel like you want to give up but those are the days you have to double your effort and keep grinding.
What are guilty pleasures food wise?
Sometimes I treat myself with a delicious burger from ShakeShack haha. They’re delicious
