A NEW ADVENTURE Even though I did a couple of runway shows at the time when I was in a modelling agency in Switzerland, I never considered myself as a model and surely never (evar evar eveer) wanted to become one. First of all, I really love food and I could never restrict myself from things I love. Second of all, to make it in the modelling business you have to be really tall, and my height is 1m73, which is already quite good but nothing compared to the usual 1m75-1m80. So I did some photoshootings for fun and to meet people in fashion. Of course when you’re in an agency you get to do some runways. I’ve done 5 or 6 but never would I have considered that I would one day open the show of such a great brand like Mango and especially in a city like Moscow. 

So here I was, tiny me, among all the 1m80 models standing by my side. Luckily, my inner voice pushed my confidence levels up (maybe the super dose of adrenaline pushed it higher too…and the 3 cups of coffee I had before, whoops) but anyway I was ready to rock that catwalk. I was quite nervous at first, but ready to enjoy every single second. Mango just launched their new sports collection, so as it is the big news I was wearing a Mango Sport outfit to open the show. Everything went absolutely great, and I even got the chance to dance with some lovely pumpkin heads who were presenting the Mango Kids line. Once the stress was down, we enjoyed the after-party and our last hours in Moscow. Enjoy the shots babes!

Congrats, keep up the good work :)

Absolutely amazing news!! The pics are awesome!! You look stunning;)

you looks so good in this sporty dress!
the advantage you habe over a normal model is that the brands want YOU because you are a own brand. When you are a model you are one of million. and your are in the positon to work withe brands and they want to know your opinions and don´t only want you to present their collection like a normal model. do you know what I mean? it´s hard to express it in words. (In english words ;))

You looked stunning! I love the dress you wear in the last 2 pictures

Kristina, it was so great seeing you again in Munich! I think even besides 1,80m models you’d always have the most breathtaking appereance, not only because you’re pretty but because you have personality!

So great.Right dresses are some can flaunt your inner beauty and even make you more standout in the crowd. But, when you choose the dresses, you must take your own skin tone into considerate.

You are so lucky! I am not interested in modeling in general but walking the runway is my biggest dream. So fun!

what fun! its so great to get your hair and makeup done for the day a bit relaxing perhaps. love all of the looks here! congrats this is very exciting I am sure. xx. gigi.
