Larissa Hofmann was discovered three years ago, asked by the agency to go to Paris, and hasn’t lived in Germany since. The 23-year-old’s career definitely got a kick-start and during her years in the industry she’s become a Chanel favourite (she has walked five shows for the luxury label), and was handpicked by Armani to star in their fragrance commercial. Of course the model in-demand has worked with H&M too. 

Larissa lives in – or perhaps in-between – London and New York, but just got her first apartment in Manhattan. H&M Life caught up with her during a shoot, and of course asked her to answer our Top Model Secrets questionnaire. 

MY FAVOURITE PHOTOGRAPHER IS…
“I love Horst P Horst, Nan Goldin, Sølve Sundsbø, Bill Brandt, Steven Meisel and Lindbergh of the 90s.”

IN MY CAREER, I AM MOST PROUD OVER…
“How many wonderful people and friends I found during this unexpected journey.”

MY MOST MEMORABLE SHOOT/SHOW WAS…
“I will always remember doing the Armani Code TV commercial in LA, where I worked with geniuses and professional people. I loved the acting experience and want to learn more! My first Chanel show last January was a major thing for me. And also shooting with Greg Kadel for French Numéro – that was my first big shoot in New York. He and his team were really supportive.”

THE SONG THAT ALWAYS GETS ME GOING AT A SHOOT IS…
“A classic: Kiss by Prince.“ 

MY CREATIVE OUTLET IS…
“Escaping the city and going to the countryside or the ocean.”

MY MODEL ICON IS…
“Shalom Harlow and Malgosia Bela.”

MY BEAUTY SECRET IS…
“To smirk and not worry about every little mishap... It saves you a headache and wrinkles ;-)”

I KEEP IN SHAPE BY…
“Swimming and dancing in clubs in Berlin. Best music there.”

FOR A QUICK HAIR FIX, I…
“To be honest I'm not doing much to my hair as it is naturally straight. But I always use argan oil for a nice finish.”

MY DE-STRESS TRICK IS…
“Catching up with friends. Or in worst case I'll call my mama – moms are amazing!”

MY SECRET TALENT IS…
“I was at an art school before. I love everything from drawing and painting to art history.”

I SMELL LIKE…
“I love fresh and natural scents, like the smell of lemon and Sicilian cedar.”

MY FAVOURITE OFF-DUTY LOOK IS…
“A pair of tailored wide trousers (Céline or Prada), a simple shirt (Margiela), underneath a long coat or bomber jacket and some flat shoes (obsessed with my new Stella McCartney ones).”

RIGHT NOW, I AM OBSESSED WITH…
“I just got my first apartment in Manhattan, so I'm super excited about shopping furniture and designing this new place.”

THE BEST BEAUTY TIP I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS…
“Get the inside right – and the outside will fall into place.”

MY FAVOURITE HOTEL IS…
“Where I could bring my friends, order endless room service and have a good time :)”

MY FAVOURITE RESTAURANT IS…
“I love many place on the Lower East side. Especially Beauty & Essex and also Café Mogador.”

FOR BREAKFAST, I ALWAYS HAVE…
“Something different. With a coffee (it’s essential).”

FOR A LONG FLIGHT, I ALWAYS PACK…

WHEN I HAVE SOME FREE TIME, I…
“Don't want to plan anything and just do what I feel like.”

THE BEST ADVICE I’VE EVER RECEIVED IS…
“Remember to have fun, don't take everything too seriously, have fun and play!”

MY FAVOURITE THING TO SHOP WHEN I AM AWAY IS…
“Little funny gifts for my friends and sister – they'd probably always wonder what the hell they're supposed to do with all that. Ah and I like to try local beers. Always a good experience (mostly).”

BEING A MODEL, I’VE LEARNT…
“The world's a small place without limits – sounds visionary but it's so, so true.”

POST-MODELLING, I WOULD LIKE TO…
“Still work in fashion and the art scene because that's what I love. And never give up on travelling. So much to explore!”

MY FAVOURITE TV SHOW IS…
Tatort! Which is this long-running TV series about a detective that’s on every Sunday evening.”
