Few know that this Brazilian model name that misleads is married, has a soul for rock and crochet in her spare time. Raquel Zimmermann manages a race of myocardial proof fashion, so it is the face of My Dior, the latest collection of jewelry maison, inspired by a classic: the cannage (or grid) of the chairs of the Haute Couture.
Is 29 and the agenda for a new face of twenty living its first boom. Also the resistance. Getting an appointment with her in full Week Mode de Paris is a challenge that finally the destination with hundreds of calls to your booker makes possible: between planes, Raquel Zimmermann serves TELVA. So still on the tip of the iceberg after nearly fifteen year career. All either absolute discretion despite perhaps the biggest scandal of his career is that announcement in dancing reggaeton for the fashion photographer Steven Meisel, nor wanders big galas and red carpets. She only works, but the best: a decade after signing his first contract with Dior cosmetics division, this Scandinavian features Brazilian maison returns to the New Look and timeless elegance to make My face to Dior, the new jewelry collection designed by Victoire de Castellane. “Back to work with them means a lot to me because it was one of my biggest supporters at the start of my career,” he says.
This idyll is not surprising, since a beauty as multifaceted as Rachel tuned to perfection with dialing codes that Dior has since its beginning in pure femininity. No matter if we talk about pride or naive woman, a woman of sophistication and natural, as well as interpreted by the top facing the goal, of course, Meisel, My spot for Dior. “This is the real me? I do not know,” asks Rachel to one another, in what looks like an impromptu performance. “Imagine talking to your jewelry”, concludes the model in the video. And she would talk to her? “I love the huge gold bracelet not stones, but I also lost the pink gold,” he says.
THE DREAM OF THE CATWALK
To achieve a more than enviable maturity in his career, Raquel Zimmermann had to start very young: thus, has reached 29 with the job well done. He left his native Rio Grande do Sul, in Brazil, where he keeps “great memories surrounded by nature and playing all the time with my brothers,” to succeed. His is not the story of nothing surprising surprise signing in burger or airport: Raquel from Nina knew I wanted to get on the catwalks. At age 14 and went to a modeling school in which he taught to march with the resounding steps now mimic the apprentices. From Brazil flew to Japan and thence to Paris, where they crossed in his life mobres as Chanel and Valentino, and then everyone else.
In 2000, with distressed 17 years, exceeded forty shows per season, a pace that kept seven years. In 2005 and charged up to $ 10,000 per show and, last but not least, I get Victoria’s Secret. Her long legs had nothing to envy of his compatriot Gisele Bundchen. But except for tanned skin, his features sharp and distant beauty, almost gelida, let intuit their German ancestry. A dichotomy, heat and cold, which rauel, Latin name and surname of Central, has seized on to perfection: in 2007 unseated Gemma Ward as the number one web portal specializing in models, and today its ranking Models.com Industry Icons is called, where only those who are entering an authority on fashion. Yes, she is.
CROCHET AND ROCK & ROLL
Ensure that Rachel still is not working because he wants to venture. But for now, do not lose watches the runways. Installed for years in New York, likes especially because is a great starting point for travel, is the center of the world, and there is his little world, he shares with her husband, Chilean photographer Ruy Sanchez Blanco. They both enjoy going to concerts – she is nicknamed the rock model, and that is a crack with the electric guitar – and at home always sounds Patti Smith. Maybe one day follow in the footsteps of her friend Karen Elson, who has worked with repeatedly and that two years ago released their first album. Meanwhile, the music for Raquel is a hobby “like surfing or crochet … I love it!” He says. It all sounds very boho but eye to the data: the versatility of the top has been sharing the flat with the very Lady Gaga in her video Born this way.
The latest creative side has broken into his staff zeitgeist (German intellectual and cultural state of an era) is Victoire de Castellane. “It was a real pleasure to meet during the shoot of My Dior New York,” said Rachel, as politically correct as serious as his seductive voice almost choked. Meanwhile, Victoire, the creative director of Dior Joaillerie concludes: “He wanted a top model with a very powerful image of fashion, but as versatile as to convey the different styles of women who are leading the collection. She’s Perfect!”
