Lauren Carter is a model at @rolemodelsmgmt and she is also a singer / songwriter. I hope you’ll enjoy the interview;
How did you fall in love with modeling?
I was out with my boyfriend after I graduated college and was scouted by Ford Models. I haven’t looked back since.
How were you discovered?
What’s one of the most interesting shoots that you’ve done?
A lingerie shoot that went viral and got published in the Daily Mail and in worldwide press because it was banned from Facebook for being too sexy!
How would you define your personal style?
I am half Audry Hepburn half Kate Moss.
Where did you grow up? How have your roots influenced your sense of style?
I grew up with a great emphasis on my education and ballet, piano, theatre, the arts. It shaped my career in entertainment and my ambition, definitely.
Who is your style icon and why?
Brigitte Bardot because she’s the ultimate sex symbol and I never get sick of the French Riviera in the ‘60s. Timeless and eternally chic.
Who is your favorite photographer and why?
Helmut Newton, for eroticism and a composed aesthetic. Ellen Von Unwerth for her distinctly feminine informed erotic and glamorous decadent shots. Cameron Hammond who i just discovered on instagram – he’s kind of a nouveau Slim Aarons.
What advice would you give to aspiring models out there?
Get out there and shoot! These days definitely use Instagram as it’s a great way to reach a global audience. Take the job seriously and do something for your career everyday.
Do you edit your own photos? If yes, which programs do you use?
Occasionally. I use facetune on casual photos but any major producer shoots I outsource editing as I prefer to leave it to a pro.
