With razor-sharp cheekbones, full lips and a very strong eyebrow game, Elodia Prieto has all the right external features to make it big in modelling. And she’s well on her way.

Since her 2013 start, the young Parisienne has been seen in editorials in coveted publications like The Love Magazine, AnOther Magazine and Carine Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book, and Elodia also has extensive runway experience. During fashion month for A/W 2014 she walked over 30 shows, including most of the big names in high-end fashion; Maison Martin Margiela, Valentino, Dior and Prada, to name a few.

Elodia Prieto has been modelling for two years and is based in Paris. During a shoot with H&M, we asked her to fill out our Top Model Secrets questionnaire!

MY FAVOURITE PHOTOGRAPHER IS...
“I love a lot of photographers, and there are many I would like to work with. I think that each photographer has his or her own style and vision. I would have loved to work with Helmut Newton.”

IN MY CAREER, I AM MOST PROUD OVER...
“I just started so I have a lot of things to prove before I can be proud.”

MY MOST MEMORABLE SHOOT/SHOW WAS...
“My first shoot with Patrick Demarchelier for Love Magazine.”

THE SONG/ARTIST WHO ALWAYS GETS ME GOING AT A SHOOT IS...
“Some old rock like The Rolling Stones or The Beatles. Or a song that makes me smile.”

MY MODEL ICON IS...
“All the 90's supermodels because they were very different – elegant and with incredible personalities. I think it's very rare today, except for the new generation of supermodels like Daria Werbowy, Natasha Poly, Natalia Vodianova, etc. We new models seem less magical.”

MY BEAUTY SECRET IS...
“No makeup to keep a very good skin. I wash [my face] with mineral water.”

I KEEP IN SHAPE BY...
“Eating healthy and working out.”

FOR A QUICK HAIR FIX, I...
“Use a hair straightener very quickly to win over my little wild waves.”

MY DE-STRESS TRICK IS...
“A good run.”

I SMELL LIKE...
“Black Orchid by Tom Ford. It's patchouli, dark and sensual, but also wild.”

MY FAVORITE OFF-DUTY LOOK IS...
“Jeans with a cashmere top.”

RIGHT NOW, I AM OBSESSED WITH...
“Decorating my apartment.”

THE BEST BEAUTY TIP I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS...
“Less is more! The first beauty tip I received and the one I always try to implement comes from my mother. When I started wearing makeup she told me ‘never wear too much makeup and try to keep it natural.’”

MY FAVOURITE HOTEL IS...
“A lot of hotels are very beautiful. Park Hyatt in Paris and the new Trump Hotel in New York are very beautiful, but I would like to go to Naoshima in Japan. It's an island with many museums and its hotels are really incredible.”

MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS...
“Paul Bocuse restaurant [L'Auberge du Pont de Collonges] in Lyon.”

FOR BREAKFAST, I ALWAYS HAVE...
“Fruits and cereal.”

FOR A LONG FLIGHT, I ALWAYS PACK...
“A good book, Advanced Night Repair by Estée Lauder to keep my skin hydrated and rejuvenated, and a warm and comfy sweater.”

WHEN I HAVE SOME FREE TIME, I...
“Like to go the cinema and art exhibitions as much as I can.”

THE BEST ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS...
“Be humble and stay cool.”

MY FAVOURITE THING TO SHOP WHEN I AM AWAY IS...
“It really depends from where I go. Sometimes I like to buy wine from different countries to taste.”

BEING A MODEL, I’VE LEARNT...
“To be patient.”

POST-MODELLING, I WOULD LIKE TO...
“I don't know for the moment. I have a lot of ideas in my head and a lot of things excite me.”

MY FAVOURITE TV SHOW IS...
Game of Thrones.”

RIGHT NOW, I AM READING...
“A lot of biographies.”

MY GOAL IN LIFE IS...
“To be successful in my professional life first, and then in my personal life.”
