Our little backstage chat with top model Cindy Bruna
Besides attending the spectacle (calling it just a show would be an understatement) itself, we got the chance to have a chat with top model Cindy Bruna. She isn’t only insanely beautiful (even in real life), the 23-year-old model also seems to be very sweet and she’s interesting on top. Some women do have it all…
You’ve gone a long way in the modeling industry. How did you know that this was your calling?
I actually didn’t really know… I was always thin and tall, compared to my friends at school but I didn’t know that modeling was an actual job. They actually just found me in the South of France when I was 15. A woman came to talk to me and asked whether I was interested in coming to Paris to pursue a modeling career. I talked about it with my mother, maybe even begged her, and so I started during my school holidays. When I turned 18, I moved to Paris and then everything became pretty crazy.
After all you’ve reached in your career, do you still have any milestones to reach as a top model?
Of course! I’m still super young and I have so much to achieve. Also, a career isn’t just about what I’m doing right now, it’s also about what will happen after I stop modeling.
What would you do if you weren’t a model?
I actually wanted to be an accountant for a little while or a math teacher. A sexy accountant of course.
Diversity in the modeling industry is slowly getting better. How did you experience the industry as a model of Congolese descent?
I’ve always seen my mixed background as a major strength. My dad is Italian, my mom Congolese and I grew up in France. The fact that I grew up with all of these cultures and influences has only been an asset in my career.
