Something funny that happened during a casting?
They never imagine that I have such good hips. My face is very cute, but I have hips that they never think I will have, they are always surprised hahaha
What does fashion mean to you?
It is something that happens over time. While a style will live on forever, your personality never goes away. The fashions yes.
Who is your biggest beauty inspiration?
Definitely Hailey Baldwin.
What are your goals as a model?
I don’t have so many goals in this world. I’m a model because I’m a beautiful woman, but my dreams are related to television. I dream of working for Netflix.
Who are some of your favorite models and designers and why?
Hailey Baldwin. Her style is unique, her way of dressing and the couple she makes with Justin are definitely a hit.
Another model that I think is a super pretty person is Shannon from Lima. I had the opportunity to share a day with her here in my hometown by a mutual friend of James and Shannon.
Another model who is undoubtedly my favorite and is Colombian is Daniela Salazar. She is a charming woman. I know her, she is a friend of mine and I love what she transmits to us through her networks. Apart from everything she is a natural woman.
Designers: Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana who does not feel full wearing their clothes? Elegance class and security.
How did you stay in shape?
I train daily. My great passion is running. Live to run, run to live.
What do you think of the size 0 controversy in the industry?
Good topic. I suffered from anorexia and today I am 100 recovered. I think that what these models show us generates too negative an impact on women.
What is fun and rewarding in modeling?
When you are a model you feel beautiful, admired, you honor your beauty. I think the most beautiful thing is the security it gives us as women.
And what do you dislike?
All hahaha … I’m too explosive it costs me patience.
What is your advice for the newer models?
Never stop dreaming.
Today there are too many beautiful women, there is a lot of competition, so give your 100% in everything.
If you don’t go for everything, don’t go for nothing.
What are the guilty pleasures of food?
Ice cream without a doubt.
How often you go to the gym?
