I know ive told this story before but just sitting back reminiscing about my awkward run in with model daga ziober in manhattan about a year ago. She caught me staring while we were waiting to cross the street. When she looked back down at her phone I walked over and asked if she was a model (no clue why I asked that since I already knew exactly who she was) before I even finished the sentence she said no without even looking up from her phone. I said something like "oh well you should be" and she said thanks. No emotion at all she actually seemed annoyed by me. Which I dont blame her cause I seriously need to stop randomly starting conversations with these models I run into on the streets of nyc. Its fun though! You get to find out the personalities behind these inspiring pictures you see in magazines. If youre lucky youll run into a model like hailey clauson who will carry out a full conversation with you like shes known you for years. If youre not so lucky you run into joan smalls

^ lol, I feel like I would have said the exact same thing, just like "are you a model?" it would be the first thing to come out of my mouth even if I know exactly who they are, for some reason I could never bring myself to be like "omg i'm such a huge fans of yours" if i ever ran into a model I loved. I would want to like introduce myself or something in a cool/interesting manner, but that's me just over thinking it.

Haha I know what you mean, I'd hate to be fangirling all over the place but that's probably what would happen

reminds me of when i ran into Behati back in 2009 and i asked if she modeled (already knowing the answer) she answered yes like i was stupid for asking while eating a carrot and it being all in her teeth I think over the years once youve ran into them enough that initial nervousness goes aways and youre able to talk to them like normal human beings

Yah but to me its hard to talk to them like normal human beings because most of them dont look like normal human beings. Plus some of them have an aura and unexplainable energy surrounding them that you can literally feel. Sounds far fetched but it's very true. Sometimes an intimidating aura sometimes an inviting energy. Depends on the model. For instance standing in line next to jaquelyn jablonski in starbucks she gave off a relaxing vibe and energy that instantly put me in a good mood. Didnt talk to her though.

I don't know, I'm comfortable talking to people and I've never had a moment where I felt uncomfortable or nervous around any models. Put off from some, maybe, but never really nervous. I totally get what you're saying about the vibes people give off, though!

Im a shy person so its not even just models its people in general. Same thing with the energy people give off. Just working in the industry has given me a heightened sense of the vibes people give off

I met Ruby Aldridge today at Heathrow Airport and she was so sweet, funny and amazing! I told her I was a fan and she said that was really cool and sweet. Then she asked me my name and shook my hands saying it was nice to meet me. I said the dumbest thing after by saying she was a better model than Lily and she raised her fist and laughed. Then said they're both really different. Then she added "but it's true" and laughed even more which really made me laugh!

I always got good vibes from Ruby! Good to know my assumptions were correct.

A few more encounters I had this summer! Feel free to follow my instagram for more model encounters!

I met Fabiana Semprebom at an Argentinean bar (Novecento) in Soho! She was very nice to me, asked for my name. We didn't walk much because she was sitting with a large group of friends (who among them was also Bruna Tenorio, Viviane Orth, and a few other rando models). She took a picture nonetheless and then commented on my Instagram of the picture with many hearts hahahaha

I also met Julia Stegner on Broadway and Prince St. It was so pathetic; she walked right by me in a hurry and ran across the street. I ran after her (LOL) and stopped her. She was very sweet and took a picture with me. She was SO tall, definitely did not expect it haha (even though I'm well aware that she's over 6 foot). She was not as conversational as other Brazilian models I have met, but Julia was smiley and I assume she was in a hurry.

I am not sure if I already posted that story of not, if I did I am sorry.

I did not meet models personally but my dad used to be a bodyguard during the film festival in Cannes and have been escorting quite a few actresses and models. And he usually don't talk to them or get attached to them but there is one lady he really liked. And his big crush seem to have been Bianca Balti.

He had to spend almost 1 week with her (he was actually guarding her jewelry more than her haha) and she seemed to be a blast and extremely friendly even if my dad actually don't speak much English. She even kissed him on the cheek because he got her a pack of cigarette when she run out. I think he went to heaven on that day

One night she wanted to go to a club with her friend and my dad told her she could not because they had to bring the jewelry back. They agreed that he take all the jewelry with him while she go have fun. haha

So, I have not met her but through his story I can say she seem to be great (even if she likes to break a rules or two)
