So how do I spend my day when I’m not on photo shoots, filming or at specific events? Mostly I go from meeting to meeting.
As well as reading and researching scripts for my production company BRAVEN Films, I have discussions about possible sources of financing, strategy, budgets etc.
I have to look put together and formal because these are serious occasions, often in the presence of third parties who are key to the success of our business.
That’s when I’ll throw on a blazer, smart trousers and a shirt, together chic heels or flats.
My charity work involves meetings to make sure every cause I support makes sense and that every penny raised goes where it’s supposed to. As you probably remember I give my time to the Fight against AIDS Foundation and I’m on a board working to preserve the heritage of the city of Toledo.
Then there’s the hidden side to the modelling world; castings and powwows with my agents. Castings are like job interviews, which we’ve all been to, right? You have to be yourself and feel comfortable because they want to see the real you. For me that’s curly hair, jeans, pumps.
Sometimes you’re what they’re looking for, others you aren’t. I never allow myself to get down because I’m very fortunate to have the career that I have.
As for my new projects, all I can tell you is that I put a lot of energy into meetings and go with thousands of ideas. The rest is a secret…. for now!
But I wanted to show you my look for a work day in NY and also the book I am reading The Sorrows of an American by Siri Hustvedt, wife of US novelist Paul Auster and a brilliant writer herself.
