I took a late night stroll with Emporio Armani showgirl and IMG super model in the making Thea Costache! With just less than a year under her belt, Thea is relatively new to the world of modelling but quickly becoming a pro and carving out a name for herself.
Stunningly confident and just sixteen years old I'm sure this won't be the only time we see her pretty little face! Here's her wonderfully honest account of her time in the job so far.
'I've been modelling for eight months. I think modelling is a great thing to do but its not so easy like everyone is thinking that it is.
There are hard parts of modelling but also fun parts. The hard parts are waiting for the castings, going there, and then the client is telling you that they need blonde models or whatever and you're not the type that they are searching for.
I think there's a lot of rejection, I think you have to be strong for this, I mean for modelling, and not listen to the other girls and their opinions. You have to know what you can do and be sure that you can do it.
Model apartments are not like everyone thinks, I mean, people think you have a driver and your staying in a hotel and whatever else but actually you have your room in your apartment with five or six other models, probably one bathroom, small kitchen, small rooms, small bed!
If you have the chance to stay with a really nice girl it's really good because you can go together to castings and it's fun and you can spend time together but if not, it's horrible!!'
Not put off by ridiculously long casting ques and miniature model apartments, Thea's career has only just begun.
'I wanna try my best at modelling, I want to see how far I can go and what I can do.'
