Spotlight on Giulia Theller, new face of Why Not Model

Do you remember your first photo shoot? What was the feeling?

My first shooting was super exciting. I had never done anything like this before, it was hard but very satisfying! It was a communication without saying a word, just speaking through my eyes.

Afterwards, when I was looking at some pictures I couldn’t even recognize myself!

What have you learned from modeling? 

I think that with this job I became wiser, I’ve got a chance to explore different things than my friends from high school. Sometimes at the beginning, it could be tough because you meet different people and not all are friendly and nice with you. However, I am thankful to be surrounded by beautiful people and share my experience with them.

What do you like the most and the least about modeling industry?

The thing I like the most is communication! When I am on the set and I can intimately communicate with the photographer though my eyes. At the moments like this, I realize how powerful the photographer could be.

The thing I like the least about this job is that you never know when is the next photo shoot. Sometimes you find out just a few hours before, it makes me feel powerless about time control.

 Where have you traveled with modeling? What has been your favorite city to visit?

I had a chance to work in New York and Paris. Both cities are amazing and so different. However, my heart belongs to Paris, this city is my favorite!

What have been the weirdest thing ever happened to you on the set?

So once I was biting a raw calf’s heart… Probably, it was the most disgusting and weirdest thing I’ve ever done on the set! Of course, I am laughing about this now, because it could only happen in this job!

Modeling is also about waiting… Waiting for your makeup, hair and etc. How do you spend this time?

 It happens a lot, we also have to wait for casting or at the backstage. So it depends, sometimes I like to stay alone and use my time for studying, reading a book or resting. Also, I like to chat with the girls and get to know new people. I find it amazing when you can see each other after months and it feels like you’ve been friends forever!

What is your relationship with fashion? Do you like to play with colors and different combinations? 

I like fashion so much! I believe that clothes you are wearing have to reflect your personality and your daily mood. I also like to change and try new, different things.

 What about the social media? Could you stay offline or it is necessary to be in the middle of everything?

I love Instagram! Actually, it is the only social network I really use. I like the idea of sharing interesting things and my thoughts. Also, I use it for work: sharing the fashion shows I attend, photo shoots and pictures of myself. It is my way to communicate with people from all around the world and I love it! Sometimes I would really love to forget about everything and just turn the world off.

What are you looking for in your next job? Do you have a dream job?

Modeling can be very fun and satisfying, but it is very “short-term” job. I always wanted to be a financial adviser (that is what I am studying for), and specialize in mergers and acquisitions.
