During her first season she opened and closed for Prada in Milan and became one of the most talked about newcomers of 2009. Since then, the 22-year-old Estonian has thrived in the industry and risen steadily on international model rankings. For good reason. 

Katlin Aas is a hard worker and has been on the cover of 10 Magazine, Numéro Russia and two editions of Vogue. She has also been featured in campaigns for luxury labels like Alexander Wang, Dior, Lanvin and Missoni. Of course she’s popular with H&M too!

Besides travelling around the world for photo shoots and fashion shows, Katlin spends much of her free time drawing and occasionally listening to old Britney Spears songs. During a shoot in Stockholm (we hope she got to listen to Britney!) the experienced model filled out our top model secrets questionnaire. Keep reading to get in on her beauty routine, life goals – and get some free life advice.

MY FAVOURITE PHOTOGRAPHER IS…
“It’s hard to answer because every photographer that I have worked with has his or her own vision.  So for me it’s more about mutual understanding of how everyone works and making adjustments according to that. Finding common ground for me is quite important. I would like to think that I’m good enough to do that and give all the team that I’m working with what they are looking for.”

IN MY CAREER, I AM MOST PROUD OVER…
“Everything that I have achieved so far and the amazing people who I’ve met along the way.”

MY MOST MEMORABLE SHOOT/SHOW WAS…
“I would have to say that there has been a lot of great shoots but the one that I can’t get past is the Missoni campaign that we shot in Venice. It felt like a vacation with friends. It was great!”

THE ARTIST WHO ALWAYS GETS ME GOING AT A SHOOT IS…
“It depends on the shoot and the mood of the shoot, but Britney Spears back in the day was pretty fierce.”

MY CREATIVE OUTLET IS…
“I guess it all depends on my mood. I went to an art school so painting and creating something myself has always been very important to me.”

MY BEAUTY SECRET IS…
“Keeping my skin very well moisturised.”

I KEEP IN SHAPE BY…
“Listening to my body and its needs.”

FOR A QUICK HAIR FIX, I…
“Put it up in a bun.”

MY DE-STRESS TRICK IS…
“I haven’t really figured it out yet. But I guess spending quality time with myself and having time to unwind from work is important to me.”

MY SECRET TALENT IS…
“I wish I had one, haha.”

I SMELL LIKE…
Womanity by Thierry Mugler.” 

MY FAVOURITE OFF-DUTY LOOK IS…
“I always find myself wearing the same stuff. Mainly because all my clothes look very similar to one another, haha!”

THE BEST BEAUTY TIP I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS…
“It’s all about the quality of the skin.”

FOR BREAKFAST, I ALWAYS HAVE…
“Eggs and avocado.”

FOR A LONG FLIGHT, I ALWAYS PACK…
“Everything! I’m one of those people that needs to have everything with me to feel comfortable when staying away from home.”

WHEN I HAVE SOME FREE TIME, I…
“Do whatever pleases me on that day.”

THE BEST ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS…
“To not let anyone get to you. Whether it’s something that they said or did, it’s not worth your energy.”

BEING A MODEL, I’VE LEARNT…
“That there are so many different people in the world and yet you find common ground and similarities with almost anyone.”

POST-MODELLING, I WOULD LIKE TO…
“I haven’t figured it out yet. Hopefully I will have an epiphany one day. Preferably soon!”

MY FAVOURITE TV SHOW IS…
“It’s definitely Supernatural and Bates Motel.”

RIGHT NOW, I AM READING…
Subliminal: How Your Unconscious Mind Rules Your Behaviour by Leonard Mlodinow.”

MY GOAL IN LIFE IS…
“To be free from myself. To free my own mind from limits that I have created for myself and others.”
