Every time I see this cover I smile in disbelief because it still doesn’t feel real. Growing up I always admired the women on the covers of magazines and never thought that one day I was going to see myself up there too. To me, these faces were, and still are, the epitome of beauty, intelligence, and sophistication, so I feel very grateful for this opportunity. For me, this was a very exciting personal victory that I can hold close to my heart and be proud of for a long time. Again, it’s just proof that your passion can become your work!
There is never a dull moment working with the Grazia team and I always look forward to our time spent together. From the hair and make-up chair to the set, there is so much that goes into conducting a successful photo shoot and it all comes down to teamwork. A great team means great results! Getting to play dress-up all day is definitely one of the best parts of my job, so you can imagine how much fun I had doing an 8 page spread. I felt like a kid again getting to jump around in so many different pieces. I had a lot of fun getting to experiment with a number of looks that brought out different sides of my personality. It was a blast and I was in such a playful mood all day. My smile never faded! When the shoot was over and we wrapped for the day I was a little sad, but I guess that means we’ll just have to do it again!
