– Elegance and style?
Elegance and style are two concepts that go together. I don’t understand one without the other. We can say that it goes almost together, but there isn’t that associate elegance always to be dress in white tip, but knowing wear clothes and live with them in any situation.
-You have lived in different cities: New York, Miami, Paris … What is the city you find most inspiring?
I like them all, because each one of them got the better. Many times I escape to one of these cities for inspiration or just to lost there.
I love New York. It’s a city full of energy. I go every September and Februarys. These two months are sacred and always when I back to Europe after these trips i bring the fully renewed energy. Paris is my teen …… my first step toward family independence and Miami where I studied at the University of Miami. I think Miami as home. As a second home. It is certainly a very important part of my life.
– What does a supermodel?
For me a supermodel it is mostly a superwoman. Someone able to know to thank and not to forget who gave her the first decisive chance.
– Can you tell a story of supermodel stage?
I could tell a thousand and probably end up with some myths. I have very good memories and many stories of which I remember often as I am of those who have very good memory.
Supermodel was a program made with love. With great professionals we hope to return this in the future.
It was a fantastic stage and certainly a professional and personal enrichment.
– You’ve launch a book in which you tell us about the lifes of girls in the highest spheres of society. It’s called Wacu Girls : World , ambitious , cool & Unique , which has been a successful , which is now in the second part ( Wacu girls when the time is ticking ) How did the book ? and what features have to have woman to be a Wacu Girl?
Planet The publisher asked me to write a fiction book with a profile similar to Sex in New York City or Gossip Girl. I got to thinking and from there came the concept Wacu that you want to convey is that there are a NO before a YES, it does not matter where you come from or who you are if you fight you can achieve your goal.
The stories take place in Paris , Madrid , New York , Miami , Mexico , London and Colombia . In the second part the girls have grown up and the love joined with the sex theme and the subject ot taking decisive decisions .
Everyone can be a Wacu if she always go ahead with the truth , be willing to fight for a dream and don’t make the sofa her refuge. It’s time to move, take on the world without eating anyone and grow professionally and personally .
– I have to say that personally I loved your book and I wonder.. When we can watch Wacu girls on TV?
I wish! I said it from the start. Hope it’s a dream come true someday.

I have a business and a lot of responsibility and I can not lower the guard but often is what most want.
-Over the years you’ve been working as image consultant What is the most common mistake when it comes to clothing?
Wanting to be something you’re not really.
-You come from a family belonging to the world of fashion. Your mother was a famous model in the 70s and your father President of the Pasarela Gaudí among other charges.What do they broadcast you on how to fashion?
That you can’t live of a photo or that a suit doesn’t have any use if you don’t know how to sale the product.We have to fight for things and never be believed more than anyone.
– What is the key to good host?
Be natural. Make the guest feel comfortable and at home and treat everyone equally.
– Can we confess a sublime moment lived in the world of fashion?
My baptism in the first parade in Paris that I went with my father to see Claude Montana. It marked me. I remember we were sitting next to Sonya Rykel and then went with my father to the backstage. Much champagne and Supermodels were all 90. All a real movie …..
