Letícia Santos: “I like to feel comfortable to express my atitutes and express myself in front of the camera!”
13 jun, 2012
Hi W.O.M, It´s a pleasure to be here, My name is Leticia Lacowictz, I was born in Joinville state of Santa Catarina, south of Brazil.
To be a model is not just a beautiful face, you must have attitude, professionalism, focus and patience! The most important for me is to be around the people that I love to be with, such as family boyfriend and friends
His dream became true!
I decided to be a model when I was 12 years old , a scouter went to my school looking for new faces and she invited me to join her agency, A few days later I went to her agency with my parents, because they wanted to know about the modeling market, After a long conversation, my parents and I decided to accept the invitation, and I had my first photo shooting at the same day!
I didn’t know how to pose, where I had to look, but I enjoyed a lot. Then, I started to learn more about modeling and I realized that it was what I really wanted for m y life.
Shooting, fashion shows, travel around the world, visit different places, learn new cultures, make new friends is amazing, and I am very proud of myself because my dream became true!
Working with photographers: freedom to express herself as a model
When I work with photographers, I like most when they give me freedom to pose, I like to feel comfortable to express my atitutes and express myself in front of the camera! I also love to learn new techniques with them, So every shooting I have got something new.
I don’t have special previous preparation, I just need a good night sleeping, to be full of energy for the shootings!
Pose naked is not a problem for me. It depends on the photographer´s professionalism and how will be the concept of the job!
The catwalks, the backstages funny moments
There’s always some funny experiences in the backstage or catwalks, but I will never forget when I was on a runway and my dress was falling down, so I really needed to push up the dress to not show more then I could!
I have walked for Calvin Klein ( Indonesia) Salvatore Ferragamo ( Thailand ) DKNY ( Malaysia ) Guess ( Milan ) Chanel ( Shanghai )
Female models still rule
In my opinion female models still rule this business, but the male models increased their exposure in this fashion world!
I am always making my style, but I am not a fashionista, It depends of the day. Sometimes I like to wear something different, make a new style.
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd
As a matter of fact, a similar situation has already happened to me. After a fashion show or photo shooting, they asked me to take picture together, and I always feel happy, It’s not a problem, But in a crowd I have no idea how I´d react.
Show biz, fame, success..
I think male and female can be successful, but it’s complicated at the same time cause show business can be cruel too. It depends how you deal with it.
Any fav model?
My fav female model is Gisele Bundchen, everytime I see her I think “She rocks!”.
Dating X Love
Only one love!
I Love to play voleyball
Atracting someone´s attention
Just being myself!
Having fun, enjoying life
I enjoy every single moment of my life, If a have free time I like to go for a walk, hanging out with my boyfriend, friends, watching a movie
Craziest thing in a summer time season
Summer season always have unforgettable moments, but I never did something crazy
Fav body part and why
My eyes and and my legs, cause I got it from my mother
In her Ipod
I prefer the old singers like, Roxxete, Bonnie Tyler, Rolling Stones, but I have all kinds of music in my IPOD.
Brazilian and Japanese food.
If you weren´t a model you´d be…
An actress, something related to the tv!
An unforgettable moment
when I started my international model career, and I remember when I came back to Brazil I couldn’t stop crying when I saw my parents at the airport. I have no words to describe how happy I was to see them again.
Never give up!
