StarCentral Magazine recently caught up with Paris to discuss her journey in the modelling industry and here’s what went down:
1. How did you get into the modelling industry?
I started modelling as a young teen, I did various photographic work and won a few pageant titles. I focused more so on business, entrepreneurship, and travelling in my later teens but the Universe was sending me way too many signs to ignore my ongoing passion and desire to have a long-lasting career in this industry! It pulled me straight back in and that’s how you know you’re on the right path, living your true life’s purpose when everything bay really unfolds for you.
2. What do you like most about being a model?
I love the freedom to explore and express myself through fashion and creative design. I love that it’s always different and never the same and of course I love the beautiful people you meet along the way. Collaborating and bringing to life a mutual vision is enormously fulfilling.
3. Downside to being a model?
I would say the downside within the modelling industry as a whole has been certain “restrictions” eg.. height, weight…I think it is a very outdated stereotype. If I could improve anything within the industry, it would be the abolishment of all restrictions. I think we have definitely made some progress in being more inclusive but I still feel we have a long way to go though.
4. What has been the most memorable experience of being in the modelling industry so far?
Sometimes I can’t tell the difference between what I’ve imagined and what’s actually happened… But being in New York for fashion week was definitely a highlight. That entire week was filled with amazing experiences whether it be meeting some iconic people, to doing 4 am NYC photoshoots… I would love to relive that week. I even stumbled my way into a photographic shoot for Milan Magazine! It was all so divinely guided.
5. Who have been the most interesting people you’ve met so far?
I am very grateful to have met a lot of interesting people that have made an impact on my life. An award-winning Hollywood producer who I am now great friends with! Bob Proctor who’s one of my mentors, Rob and Gary my spiritual advisors (Soul family) Miranda Kerr which was just so incredible. Simon Pelland has changed my life in such a priceless way. I’ve been blessed to be in the same room as Coco Rocha, Kevin Hart, Scooter Braun, Grant Cardone, John Travolta, and lastly, I was blessed with being on set in the presence of Nicole Kidman and also within an arm’s length of Brad Pitt for one of his movie premieres!
6.What has been the most valuable lesson you’ve learned while in the modelling industry. This can be about the industry or about yourself.
YOU ARE SO WORTHY. I think it’s very important for us to come to the realisation that we are the source of our own happiness and to never validate our self-worth on anything outside of ourselves. 2) You are 100% responsible for your life. No matter how many times I hear those words, I seem to gain a new level of understanding of what that really means and that is quite exciting; to embody the knowing that you have full power and direction over your life is the most liberating thing. Master your inner game and you’ll be unstoppable.
7. Is your family supportive of you being a model?
Absolutely! My mum has supported me in everything I have ever done. I am so truly grateful. Having a support team around you is vital for succeeding in anything in life. They carry you through the brief moments of hesitation or self-doubt.. it happens, it’s a natural thing and so having a team of people around you who are cheering for you and your success is everything.
8. If you could go back in a time machine to the time when you were just getting started, what would you do differently?
I wouldn’t do anything differently, I am a big believer of everything happens for a reason, the way it was supposed to, and if I was to do one thing differently then everything else might have ended up totally different. I’m very proud of myself and happy with where I am today. But I would definitely say to my younger self “Don’t give up, don’t stop, and don’t listen to anyone who says you don’t fit into a certain type or category. We were made to fit in, we were made to stand out!”
9. What is the best advice you have ever been given?
Who is the person you want to be 5 or even 10 years from now? Then, act and show up like her every day. You do that, and your whole world will change.
10. What are your future plans? Inside your career or out of it.
I have lots of plans… all of which I hold an image of in my mind. Some include more National and International modelling for leading designers. I also want to land lead roles in the film and television industry. And of course more travelling, I feel it nurtures my mind, body, and soul.
The ‘LIGHTNING FAST’ Round:
1. Last good movie I’ve seen: Peppermint.
2. What do you consider beautiful and why? BEING YOUR GENUINE AUTHENTIC SELF. That’s is the most beautiful thing you can ever be.
3. What haven’t you done yet that you wish you could? Travel Europe. And also spend a month on an island by myself reading books.
4. Complete this sentence: “If I had no fear, I’d ” This is a difficult one… I feel I am quite fearless.. or more so, I feel the fear and do it anyway. Everything you want is on the other side of fear. And I have no problems going after what I want.
5. What is the one “flaw” you wouldn’t change about yourself? My nondesire to prepare or cook food… because it means I get to eat Lisa’s (my mum’s) incredible food. She’s the best cook in the world.
