I just did a small interview with her.
How many shows are you doing?
What are you doing after SPFW?
I'm flying to Madrid to do the week there.
Where do you live?
I live in Paris.
Are you fluent on french yet?
Not like I'm fluent in english, but I'm getting there!
What's in your iPod?
A bit of everything but it has all Ben Harper's cds because I went to his concert and fell in love! There's a lot of MPB, bossa nova like Elis Regina, Joćo Gilberto... My parents are huge music fans so I grew up listening mostly to brazilian music.
What's you favorite film?
That's a hard one, I love movies! But Babel I absolutely loved, Stranger Than Fiction, Lost In Translation is amazing. I don't like terror a lot, neither those veeeery dramatic ones.
What's the coolest place you've ever been to?
The coolest one I think it's Paris mas the most impressive was Jordania.
What about the weight controversy?
I think that maybe we can have a part, a really small one, of fault. But the greatest part of it all is the press' sensacionalism. They are making this a gigantic drama, blaming us. Yesterday I had dinner with my parents, they went to the toilet and a guy came to talk to me. It was late, I was very tired, that stranger talking to me... and I decided to be cold so he would leave. Then he said: "I dispense anorexia and I don't like anorexics". And, with that big plate of rice and beans in front of me, I just stared at him...
Anorexia won't go away like that. It's not by complaining with us that the girls will stop being anorexics. At least the subject is on the table but if before models were dumb, now models are dumb and anorexics. I think people are using the matter for a kind of hurt pride they have because we're young, we work very hard, we pay taxes (I pay taxes since I was 15 years old) for others to desfruit and many of us help their families and how no one has anything bad to say about us they are using it to speak ill.
Do you have any consumption dreams?
A farm, in Brazil, with lots of horses, cows, chickens, ducks... [laughs] I want to do business administration and have a lot of different businesses. I can't imagine myself not having a day different from the next, being in a rut.
