They always say that mothers know best and thanks to her mother’s advice, Sorina Brumariu finds herself being named as StarCentral Magazine’s Sexiest Woman of the Month for May 2013! Sorina’s modeling career began when she was 13 years old and she joined a local agency. At first, she considered modeling being more of a hobby and so, concentrated on her schooling. As time went on and her portfolio grew more impressive, this Romanian-born beauty soon found herself drawn into the modeling industry.

“I love the energy that the runway gives you and I also love being in front of the camera of course…” In addition to that, she enjoys the surprises that come with being a model. For example, after completing a recent photo shoot, she was contacted by the photographer the next day to tell her that her one of her pictures was just featured on Vogue Italia online! Vogue is not the only high profile magazine that Sorina has been featured on. Last year, she entered a contest for FHM Magazine in Romania and despite the hundred or so girls that entered with her, Sorina found herself counted among the final 3! “…we had a special photo shoot at a really nice hotel in the mountains, followed by a spread in the magazine…”

But as many models know, the glamour of the final shots effectively hides the hard work and stress that went into creating them. Long hours, variable weather, creative demands, frequent costume changes and still, the model is required to look as fresh as she did the moment she arrived for the shoot! “…but if you’re passionate about it, the accomplishment makes you forget about all these little inconveniences, and be proud of the final result…” The final result where, according to Sorina, she has learned that personality is key – “…it’s not about what you’ve got, it’s about what you make of what you’ve got, always…there are so many pretty faces out there but it’s the personality that makes the difference. You have to be aware of the fact that people will see what you want them to see, and how you present yourself, that’s really important…”

Having been in the modeling industry for over 10 years now, Sorina has met many interesting individuals along the way – from photographers to designers to her fellow models. But her favourite has been the make-up artists who have “…opened a whole new world…” for her. So inspired has she been by them that Sorina is now attending the London Makeup Academy in the UK – “…I’m aware of the fact I’m not getting younger and at one point I’ll need a plan B…” Being supported and encouraged by her close family, there is little stopping Sorina from following her dreams.
