How did you start modeling?
I was discovered by three biggest model agencies in Lithuania. But after talking to my mom I decided to go with the agency which called first” Baltic models management”.
What does your career do for you?
I think modelling is one of the most interesting jobs that you can do. You can travel a lot. Visit new places, meet many different people. It helps to grow as a person and to open your mind. To see the world from every angle. To enjoy every moment, learn so many things:). It’s amazing!!
What’s your most memorable shoot?
I think it’s the first one. It’s funny, but from that moment I can see how much I have grown up and how much I have learnt. Everything was so new, unknown, undiscovered. I still remember the stylist explaining me that she or photographer might come and touch my body all the time. Since it was my first shoot I was so afraid. I didn’t know how to move or communicate with my eyes to camera. It was really difficult for me. I remember I was looking beautiful, had my long hair done and make up was so nice. After all day shooting I only got a few good pictures. If I think about how much effort it cost me at that time…Now it goes much easier! And I still have those pictures. 🙂
Of course during the years I did some nice shootings. Such as Harper’s Bazaar, L’Officiel, Madame Figaro, Vogue and lots of others.
What do you think MODELLIST-ID can do for the model community?
Modellist is the place to get some good tips advices for models. Many questions that girls have but don’t know whom to ask, this can be a help.
Who do you admire and would you like to meet?
I would like to meet Morgan Freeman, he is my favorite actor. And if I had a time machine, I would like to go back to Socrates times and to listen to the lessons that he gave.
What’s your favorite book/film/music?
I don’t really have one favorite book. I love everything about philosophy. So to choose I really can’t.
Music: All kinds of music that makes me feel good. One day can be pop, another day can be hip-hop and another day can be Beethoven.
What’s your beauty regime?
My beauty regime is not so difficult. Trying to sleep at least 8 hours, drinking water, eating healthy. Do sports; yoga and swimming. Using good quality creams, taking masks mostly from natural products.
And what is the one beauty product you can’t live without?
I guess is my toning and firming body oil from Collistar.
What are your favorite hang out spots in the city you live in(current location)?
Center of Milan Duomo, Deus restaurant for dinners and any bar in Milan. They all are cute, inviting warm nice places to have a good espresso or cappuccino. 🙂
What is your favorite city and where do you like to hang out there?
I’ve been traveling around the world. It’s not so easy to pick one.. But I think I found my city or country. It’s Italy. It’s an amazing place. It has from mountains to the sea. You can find everything what you need here. Good food, nice people, good weather!
Do you have any advice for those who want to start modeling?
For the beginners or the once who want to become a model. Do it! Why not!? Just never lose yourself. You don’t need to change who you are to succeed in this business. Actually “who you are” makes things happen.! Enjoy it! And of course the help of your agent or agency.
What are your plans for the future?
Future plans… I don’t want to plan. I live and enjoy the moment. For now fashion is my future. And when time comes to start something else, then I will start thinking. I am open for everything!
