JULIANA SCHURIG

She volunteers at a soup kitchen, has adopted a rescue dog and loves spending time cooking. Meet American beauty Juliana Schurig.

Steely features, blonde hair, blue eyes and long legs. Jersey girl Juliana Schurig has all the model attributes on point, and was still a kid when she was discovered and convinced to give modelling a chance. Although scouts and agents wanted her to start – and she did some editorial work back in 2008 – she chose to wait to start her modelling career till she had finished high school. In 2012, when she finally got her face in front of the camera and her feet on the runway, she did it in a big way. Her first season on the fashion circuit was for spring and summer 2012, and she ended up walking an incredible 48 shows.

Juliana Schurig has been keeping herself busy ever since, doing campaigns for big cosmetic labels, luxury brands, avant-gardist labels – and of course H&M. But it’s not just the campaigns you might recognise Juliana from. Her face has been spread over the pages of Vogue, WSJ, W, Paper Magazine and i-D, to name just five out of countless magazines. 

After a recent shoot for H&M, we asked the model to share her beauty secrets, post-modelling plans and much more with us. Here are her answers!

MY FAVOURITE PHOTOGRAPHER IS…
“That’s hard to answer. Photographers are so different and unique in their own way that I don’t think you can compare. In general, I am so blessed I’ve gotten to work with so many amazing people.“

IN MY CAREER, I AM MOST PROUD OVER…
“Honestly everything! I achieved so much at a young age and I have had so many amazing experiences that I can’t compare.”

MY MOST MEMORABLE SHOOT/SHOW WAS…
“My first time shooting W Magazine with Edward Enninful and Craig McDean. It was my first big shoot and the pictures are still some of my favourites!”

THE SONG/ARTIST WHO ALWAYS GETS ME GOING AT A SHOOT IS…
“Rihanna.”

When I have some free time I also try to volunteer at a soup kitchen in New York.
