Rio 40º. the series: model Diana Bouchardet
24 fev, 2015
Hello everybody and I m glad to share my history with you guys! Well, my name is Diana, I m 24. I was born in a little town, up in the mountains close to Rio, named Teresópolis, whose waterfalls and forests are as a post card.
So I´ m somebody who loves to spend time in the middle of the nature, feeling the energy and contemplating what the earth gives to us.
I started my career 8 years ago, and since then I have travelled to work in a different countries: Italy, USA, Germany, France… It’s realy a great job! Haha
Actually, i didn’t decide to become a model just by myself: it started when I was a little girl, somewhere between 12 and 14, when everybody started to poke me: “you shall become a model!”, or something like that, maybe but I never listened. Until one night: I was in a bar, hanging out with my friends, in the bohemian neighborhood Lapa – Rio de Janeiro, when a photographer stopped me and gave me a biz-card from Elite Models.
After some days I decided to give it a shot and take my first testshooting, so I went to the agency with my mom. This path led me to participate to my first Contest Elite Model Look 2008. I was 17 when actually the thing really started to get real.
There are so many good things about being a model, but for sure the best is traveling!
Posing to photographers: concentration and meditation
As my preparation starts at the time I sit on the chair for the make up, i use to have a plenty of time before things get started; that is the sacred moment u concentrate and meditate about all the photo shoot.
And once posing to them, it´s really cool when there is that “sync” that turns working a very easy and natural moment.
Concerning posing naked, it depends on the project, If it’s something nice, no vulgarity involved, I have no problem at all.
The runway shows
I really love them! The energy and the huge adrenaline involved excite me to get in scene.
I´ve already walked for Ricardo Cerrapa Couture in Milan, True Religion in the Mercedes Benz (Miami); Salinas, NK Store and others.
When I´m walking down the catwalk, I feel like there is nobody there, but me, the music, the flashes, as long as my nervousness and excitement. It’s very rewarding!
Male models x Female models: who rule this business?
Well, I have some friends male models who constantly work and make maybe more than many girls in the fashion world. The model I admire the most is Isabelli Fontana, I love her simplicity and natural beauty.
Diana, a fashionista?
If fashionista means getting crazy in the shops and buying everything, I m not. During all my life I always preferred going to look for something with some real value. My favorite shops those ones known as thrifts. I wear what I feel comfy in the moment both inside and outside.
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd!
Selfie time! Haha

Super power and Super heroes
For sure to fly! It Is my dream, feel the sensation the birds feel and just “Fly away from here”
My brother, mom and dad. For sure, my best inspiration comes from somebody who fought all life to prove me that is not necessary super power, but a heart full of love and humility to get where we dream of.
Atracting someone´s attention
Having fun and enjoying life
I love life! All the ways to enjoy it’s ok for me: partying with the people I love, meditating In my hometown, waterfalls, just chilling at home and traveling around..
Craziest (nastiest?) thing you´ve ever done in a summer time season
Every summer in Ibiza is a crazy time
Music and Food

Vegetarian and Vegan food
Fav body part and why
I like my nose, don’t know why.
Earliest childhood memory
I remember when I was around 3 or 4 and I saw my parents kissing each other, so I decided to try with my little-boyfriend, behind a tree in the kindergarten. I remember that the teacher told us that we could grab a “thrush”. I was terrified.
Nickname in school
I don’t recall if I ever had one. Just
Yourself in 10 years
I hope I’ll be living with my partner in a front-beach house in Hawaii or Maldives!
If you weren´t a model you´d be…
A dancer? Haha no, actually I don’t know
