Elbio Bonsaglio and his fav underwear: “For my daily activities I would say whatever. In my sexy moments I don´t need an underwear”
24 fev, 2013
Hi Eddie, the pleasure is all mine. I was born in Milan 28 years ago but my mother is argentinean so I grew up between Buenos Aires and Italy.
I love to travel, read, drink wine, party with my friends, go to Ibiza, dance, listen to music, tattoos, sex and most of all I love boxing.
Modeling: how did all begin
I actually started pretty late (I was 24 or something). I never really thought on becoming a model, I finished uni at that time and I was working in an advertising company. I understood very soon that staying all day behind a laptop wasnt really my story and during a fashion week in Milan I was asked 3 times in a couple of days if I wanted to become a model. At the third time I said yes!
My first test shooting was a GQ editorial Í think. The best thing of being a model is to travel constantly and to meet interesting people from all around the world.
Posing to the lens of a photographer
I love shooting! When I arrive to the location I just ask the photographer which is the story and while I m doing the hair and the make up I start to become the character. Nothing more than this.
Posing naked? It depends for what but basically yes I´m absolutely comfortable naked in front of a camera.
The amazing editorial never published!
I was at the beginning of my career, in Paris, and I took this very important editorial with a very well known photographer. The call time was at 3 pm, when I arrived at the studio I discovered that I was going to shoot with a very big female top model. I was super excited, she was stunning! We wait 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours… all the staff was there but the photographer was apparently late. 4 hours, 5 hours, 6 hours… the photographer arrived at 3 am!
Everybody was pretty tired (and pretty pissed off also I would say) but ok let s shoot and go to bed! The pics were unbelievable! At 7 am we were done. Three months later I run at the newsagent, I bought the magazine and… no trace of our pics, our fab editorial had been cut off!! ahhahahahahhahahahaha. It was my first lesson as a model: you dont celebrate after the shooting, you celebrate after you see the pics in the magazine or on the walls of the city! ;-)))))
The catwalks experiences
Walking in a big show is really good fun. In my career I feel I´m a lucky guy cause I´ve walked for great designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Armani, Ralph Lauren, Dsquared, Ermanno Scervino, Valentino, Corneliani, just to name a few
The guys X the girls: who rule the fashion industry?
Women still rule the business that´s for sure, but with social networks also male models are starting to become more popular
Hahahahahhaha, I´m not really a fashionista, but yes I love to shopping and to dress well. I don´t have a particular style, I just love to mix and to change look when I´m in different cities and moods
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd. How u´d handle that situation?
Running very fast!!!!!!
Any role model as as inspiration for your modeling career?
I couldn´t say who are my fav male models but for the women I love Gisele, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio. Not really regarding my career but for sure they inspired me a lot hahahahhaha
Dating X Loving
Train very hard
Atracting someone´s attention
Trying to pretend that I´m not a model lol
Having fun, enjoying life
Chilling out with my friends, dancing. We love parties in Ibiza. It is our core business lol
Craziest (nastiest?) thing in a summer time season
I´ve done so much that I really don´t know which one I could choose without being too rude ;-))))
Fav body part and why
In another recent interview I said that part, which is pretty useful to enjoy life, but I was asked to change it. So. this time I will be more “politically correct” I would say: my back because of my tattoos
Fav underwear for daily activities and for those coooool sexy moments :)
For my daily activities I would say whatever. In my sexy moments I don´t need an underwear
Fav singer and which music in his Ipod
My fav singer is italian and his name is Vasco Rossi. In my ipod there is literally every kind of music so that I always have good company
Sex in the elevator. In the daytime of course ( at nightime it wouldn t be that guilty)
If you weren´t a model you´d be
An astronaut ;-)))
An unforgettable moment
First catwalk ever for D&G
Just relax… and ask for another beer.
And when you´ll come to my world?
I´ve been already to Brasil and it s unbelievable but for next time I will be back again for sure
And thank you for having me Eddie!!!!! My actual project is a secret but you ll know it soon. Meanwhile I invite u guys to join my fb fan page
