Meet Becca:

Not only is Becca Avill an international model, she is also a TV presenter (host) in the UK! I really admire her because she is actively pursuing her dream of becoming both a top model & a TV presenter.

She hopes to one day be able to model for Victoria’s Secret or Sports Illustrated. She said that they have the best models and it would be a privilege to model for them.

“Any work that takes me to sunny hot beaches is what I want to be doing!”

When she’s not dressed in high-end designer fashion, she loves wearing simple outfits with designer accessories. She’s all about the accessories – sunglasses, coats, bags, shoes & scarves.

Fun fact: Becca has a whole wardrobe just dedicated to coats!

Becca is always working. She splits her time between being on the runway, doing photo shoots and working on TV. She shared that as a TV presenter, she has already covered different stories like the elections, festivals and events. When she manages to have some free time, she likes to play the piano or go outdoors. If she has a free weekend, she’ll book a trip and do some traveling.

Out of all the celebrities, Becca looks most like Kalish from Game of Thrones. Did you know that she recently did an L’Oreal ad for an online campaign?! They dyed her hair and now she is platinum nude!

Fun fact: Before Becca had her hair dyed, she looked like supermodel Gigi Hadid!

Becca is really into fitness & nutrition. She goes to the gym every day and cooks her own food because she likes to live a healthy lifestyle. She is also vegetarian and watches her environmental footprint.

Her top interests are:

  • Politics
  • Speaking French
  • Fashion
  • Traveling

Between going to the gym and swimming, Becca is very athletic. Did you know that she loves water sports?! She used to kayak but due to her really busy schedule, she doesn’t have as much time anymore.

If she could be a fruit or vegetable, she would be a tomato because they are so diverse, just like her! You can make so many dishes out of tomatoes like delicious sauces and salads.

NYFW with Fashion Model Tommy Maksanty

Photographer: Jose Rodriguez

As New York Fashion Week comes to an end, I thought it would be the perfect time to publish my interview with 2016 Mr. NYFW Model of the Year, Tommy Maksanty.

Meet Tommy:

Jenny A. (Me):  Which celebrity do you think you look like the most? 

Tommy (TM): People say I look like Edge the Wrestler if I were to put on weight.

Me:  What is it like for you behind the scenes of a fashion show?

TM: I’m pretty much laid back. I just watch and take a lot of things in.

Me: Does it ever get hectic?

TM:  I live in Virginia but I travel up to New York  for fashion weeks. Some days I’ll overbook myself.  In September 2015 I had 9 fashion shows back to back. I would go to a fitting where I would hop on my longboard and travel to the next fashion show. Last February 2016 during the snowstorm I snuck backstage during Style Fashion Week and ended up walking for M the Movement and accidentally closing Style Fashion Week for Richie Rich @richirichworld.

Me: What’s your worst fashion experience?

TM: Back in April 2016 I had a fashion show up at the UN and my taxi cab drove off with my knapsack, longboard and all my stuff. It was a complete nightmare. I lost everything from February New York  Fashion Week.

Me:  If there was one designer you could model for, anyone in the world, who would it be?

TM: Tommy Hilfiger.

Me: How would you describe your style?

TM: I wear what fits and I make it work.

Me: What are your hobbies?

TM: Walking on the runway, longboarding, traveling and other outdoor activities.

Me: Where do you like to hangout?

TM: Anywhere by the water, somewhere on a mountain and sitting VIP at fashion events.

Photographer: Jose Rodriguez

Me: What are 3 things you always carry with you?

TM: When I’m in the city I always have my longboard since I don’t like to walk –it’s too congested. I’ll also have my Bluetooth headset and portable phone charger on me.

Me: What’s your dream job?

TM: Getting paid to work out and smile.

Me: Who inspires you?

TM: My father. He gets up around 5:00am for work every day and doesn’t come home till late. He taught me how to be a hard worker.

Photographer: Jose Rodriguez

Me: Who is your favorite demigod?

Hercules. I like the way people idolize him. He’s pretty cool.

Me: If you could be a fruit or vegetable, what would you be?

TM: A watermelon – because everyone loves watermelon and it’s my favorite fruit.

Me: How would your friends describe you?

Tommy actually had his friend Ben answer this question.

Ben:  Tommy is like Johnny Depp’s stunt double. He’s smart, good looking, and has a great body with cut muscles.  You can put him on any billboard and any product will sell– he’s the real deal.
