Here are the pictures and interview from OK Magazine UK
I love how she has always sounded very grounded and humble about her success. She seems super sweet
Thanks so much to Vanessa at Bellazon for typing up the interview
Emanuela de Paula, 20 and Amy Hixson 21, are two of the world's most-on-demand models. Between them they have clocked up Victoria's Secret campaigns and countless magazine covers as well as being the faces for the High Street fashion favourite NEXT. The girls were whisked away to Palm Springs to shoot the new NEXT Tv campaign. Photographed by celebrity photographer Ben Watts.
Interviewer: Emanuela & Amy, you did the previous NEXT Tv campaign together- how do you get along?
Emanuela- Just great actually! we have become friends and we really enjoy working together. Amy is very open and friendly and extremly down to earth. In this buisness it is hard to find someone who is this nice! This shoot for Next really brings out both our interests as the theme is "road trips" - and i love taking pictures and Amy loves driving!
Interviewer: Your both sucessful models- how do you balance your work with your private life?
Emanuela- I work a lot and feel very happy about being so busy. But i try and live as normal as life as i can and i always try to be the same girl i was back in Brazil. The opportunities that i have now- traveling the world, learning about different cultures- the job is making me a better person and i am enjoying every moment of that. Im living my dream,my life is amazing, and i always tell my friends and family that i can never complain. I have everything- I have my health, my work, my friends and family. Thank god for that; I would like to have a boyfriend though!
The NEXT tv campaign launces on our screens , April 23.
