Can you tell us a little bit about what you do and when you got into it?
I am a brazilian fashion stylist and blogger. I've always loved fashion since a I was a child. I always wanted to work in this industry. As a fashion stylist I like to create beautiful and inspiring images. I started in this business six years ago.
How’s your year been so far? Any major highlights?
I am working in some fashion stylist projects that will be published in next few months.
What song have you got on repeat at the moment?
“Hello” by Adele. I love her voice. She has a powerfull voice. She touches me.
What fashion advice do you have for a man?
Like Rosita Missoni said once: “Believe in your jackets”. Be yourself. Trust in yourself. You are the fashion. And, please, you can wear your jackets, literally, when you want. It’s always a good idea.
If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?
I learned one thing from my muse Diane Von Furstenberg: “The most important relationship in your life is the relationship you have with yourself. Because no matter what happens, you will always be with yourself.” And more: “Fear is not an option”. Be patient. We have to understand: people will say bad things about you.
1 tip to grow your Instagram account?
Be interesting. You have to publish what you really enjoy. Be yourself, don’t try to be another person. On the web I find a lot of clones, you know?
What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?
If the guy has personality, he can wear everything, even white pants. But, be careful with white pants.
Any major plans for 2016?
I just want to do more fashion shoots.
What is your one guilty pleasure?
I love to eat chocolate while I'm looking for references on web. But, nowadays, I'm just looking for references because I'm on a diet.
Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?
Cauã Reymond. He is a brazilian actor and Giorgio Armani loves him. By the way, Cauã looks like George Clooney, another good example for me. You know, he is charming, handsome and he always well dressed.
