Thanks to Why Not Models
Spotlight on Elisabeth Lucasse, new face of Why Not Models.
Do you remember your first photo shoot? What was the feeling?
I did shooting for a cosmetic brand, I felt so excited. I was really happy with the pictures and that the team was so nice to me!
What have you learned from modeling?
To be independent. You are alone and traveling to a lot of places. Nowadays it is easier to find the way because you can find it on your phone. But still you have to look where you are and ask random people the way. Also you have to do everything by yourself, you have to take care of yourself. Cooking, cleaning, planning etc. It made me more independent.
What do you like the most and the least about modeling industry?
I am lucky because I see the most beautiful places and meet a lot of people! Sometimes I have to work hard, wake-up at 5.00am and finish at 8.00pm. But in the end it is all worth it. The least is that I miss home! But I think I am lucky that I can use FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp etc. And see and talk to everyone. Because of that it is easier!
Where have you traveled with modeling? What has been your favorite city to visit?
I have seen a lot of nice places: Paris, Stockholm, Milan, Malta, London, Athens, Berlin, Antwerp, Zürich, Istanbul, Hamburg and more. November, I had a shoot in Lisbon and what’s a beautiful city! If you want to do a city trip, go there!
What have been the weirdest thing ever happened to you on the set?
I got an email from my agency that I had a shoot for Glamour NL close to my home town. The location was at a little airport so I was joking to my boyfriend that maybe the shoot was in the air. When I arrived they told me and the other model, Linde, that the first picture was in the airplane during a flight. I thought it was a joke but it wasnt. In the end it was one of the most fun things I did! Picture: https://instagram.com/p/BY3nFI5hEj8/
Modeling is also about waiting… Waiting for your makeup, hair and etc. How do you spend this time?
Most of the time I talk with the team, otherwise I am on my phone. Reading articles and looking on the social media.
What is your relationship with fashion? Do you like to play with colors and different combinations?
On set I always get nice make-up, hair and clothes so when I come home I love to wear easy clothes. The bathrobe is my best friend! But I also like shopping and dress nice.
What about the social media? Could you stay offline or it is necessary to be in the middle of everything?
I like social media to get inspired about food, clothes and beautiful places. And also to keep in touch with family, friends and all the people I met. Sometimes it is also good to be offline and don’t check everything and just enjoy the moment.
What are you looking for in your next job? Do you have a dream job?
I am so thankful for everything I already did! Of course I have dreams but I try to enjoy everything I do right now and work hard for it.
