Can you tell us about how you got scouted?

When I was 14 I did a campaign for a brand in Argentina – my mother agent now, saw it and contacted my parents to ask for their permission for me to join his agency. At first I didn’t want to do it but a year later I said yes!

What have you been up to since you got scouted?

I was mainly working in Argentina until I finished high school but this year I’ve started travelling a lot more which I love! I’ve been to New York and I’m currently in London. It has been an amazing opportunity for me to see different cities that I’ve never visited before.

What’s your favourite thing that you’ve worn on a shoot or in a show that you wish was yours?

When I did the Elle Mexico cover shoot I was wearing a Dolce and Gabbana dress – I still wish I had that in my closet.

Who would be your dream photographer to work with? Or your dream designer to walk for?

It would be a dream come true to work with Mario Testino because I have always admired him AND, we both come from the same continent! Also Glen Luchford because he is unique at what he does. I would love to walk for Louis Vuitton and Chanel.

What do you do when you’re not modelling?

I like to explore and enjoy nature, I’m a foodie so I love trying different cuisines. I also love watching movies. Since I’ve been traveling a lot lately I really enjoy Skyping with my friends and family too of course.

What’s been your favourite moment as a model so far?

I’ve worked with so many great teams and my favourite moments are when I’m shooting with teams that make it feel like fun and not work!

Which city would you love to live in?

I really love my hometown Cordoba, Argentina but if I have to pick a place away from home I would choose Rome because it’s really dreamy and historic.

Do you prefer shoots or shows?

Shoots because you get really show your personally and get to really meet the team that you do shoots with

Who’s your favourite female model and who’s your favourite male model?

My favourite female model is Kate Moss, I always admire her because she is strong and we have the same height so that inspires me to follow my dreams. And my favourite male model is Xavier Serrano.

What do you do with your time off?

I do Pilates and yoga, but I also love horse-riding.

What song always gets you dancing?

Hahah that’s a funny question! I really love to dance to music in Spanish, but a song that also gets me dancing is “Work” by Rihanna.
