01

WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL MOST CONFIDENT FOR THE CAMERA?

Feeling my excitement for a shoot. Nothing can go wrong if you enjoy what you do and share it with your team. 

02

WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL MOST CONFIDENT IN EVERYDAY LIFE?

It depends. A look often gives me support and can enhance or change a current mood. I love the purity and silent beauty of no makeup and the loud celebration of life when wearing a dramatic look.  

03

THE LAST THING YOU DO BEFORE GOING ON SET?

I always do yoga in the morning and walk to work, if possible. Fresh air and movement get me prepared for anything! 

04

YOUR SIGNATURE BEAUTY LOOK?

Nothing better than a big moment of eyeliner and perfect lashes. And I’m really into a blowout as it enhances my original haircut inspiration — Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface. 

05

YOUR BEAUTY ICONS?

My grandmother. She is an elegant woman and always uses the most wonderful creams, oils, and masks. I’m into strong women who understand beauty as an enhancer for personality and not a tool to hide it. 

I’m really into a blowout as it ENHANCES my original haircut INSPIRATION — Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface.

06

FAVORITE ON-SCREEN TRANSFORMATION?

Cinderella.

07

BEST WAY TO START THE DAY?

With a cold shower. It wakes me up and makes me feel energetic and alive.  

08

TYPICAL SKIN CARE REGIMEN?

I have a wonderful Dr. Hauschka toner I’ve been using for years. Then I’m into True Botanicals Repair Serum, the Vitamin C Booster, and Pure Radiance Face Oil. It helps me balance my skin and keep the texture beautiful. I use Weleda Rose Oil on my body. And on the go, I use Woods Copenhagen products for dry hands and lips.

09

AN EXPENSIVE-BUT-WORTH-IT PRODUCT OR TREATMENT?

Kjaer Weis The Cleanser

10

THE MOST TRANSFORMATIVE WORKOUT YOU'VE FOUND?

Going everywhere on my racing bike. When at home, I ride it for hours and love going for long distances. It’s so good for the body (and very sustainable!). 

11

FAVORITE GETTING-READY SOUNDTRACK?

At the moment, Frank Ocean anything. 

12

GO-TO BREAKFAST AND A.M. BEVERAGE?

A turmeric soy latte. Soy yogurt with muesli, nuts, and fruits. And I love adding cocoa, matcha, or maca powder.

13

FOOLPROOF SELF-CARE MOVE?

I always burn a scented candle in my bathroom.

14

ON YOUR NIGHTSTAND?

Books, a scented candle, water, and a jewelry box.

15

BEST JOB?

I always love being shot together with my brother Nils. He is my best friend, and experiencing modeling together and being captured together is a great gift that’s fun!

16

BACKUP CAREER?

Taking care of the planet. Spreading sustainability will always be a mission and driving force!
