Feature Femme Gem, Model Eden
What’s your name? Eden Victoria
What five words best describe you? Head-strong, optimistic, driven, social, and very opinionated …That didn’t sound as pretty as I wanted it to, but at least I’m honest! Hahaha
What are you studying in school? I previously studied Film at York University, and I am now studying Advertising & Marketing Management. I will be finished in a year and a half, and then I will be onto my 3-month Internship.
When and how did you get into modeling? I got into modeling in 2008. I began by doing hair modeling and various small runway shows. In 2009, I did my first professional photoshoot and got into promo modeling. With lots of networking and making some great connections, I’ve had many amazing opportunities over the years. This year, I became an On-Site Model Manager for Femme Fatale, which was a lovely honour
What do you love most about Femme Fatale? The amazing models, hands down. I have worked for many promotional modeling companies and I have encountered all kinds of girls. Not only is Femme Fatale is a calibre all of its own aesthetically, but our roster is also composed of genuinely nice girls. There really are no dramatics, believe it or not. I believe that quality employees are what makes a company shine – after all, we are the official faces of the brand and the people that are responsible for delivering an amazing performance to meet the need of each individual client!
If you had any advice for a girl who wanted to become part of Femme Fatale what would you tell them? Be persistent! If at first you don’t succeed, try again! It is important to ensure that you stand out from the crowd for more than just your physical beauty. You need to show the world that you are unique. Identify what qualities differentiate you from everyone else and run with them. Being a part of Femme Fatale is not just about having a pretty face – it takes loads of personality and hard work in order to impress clients, so make sure you aren’t afraid to show off your inner beauty the same way you show your outer beauty!
What 3 characteristics do you think it takes to become a Femme Gem? Confidence, Edge and Class.
If you had to sum up Femme Fatale in 1 word what would it be?
You’ve worked quite a few events with us, which has been your favourite thus far? I had a great time at the Gelato Cup 2013. Can’t really go wrong with hot sun and hot babes!
Were there any models growing up who inspired you? Why? I was more inspired by the Power Rangers and the Ninja Turtles growing up, I can’t lie! *laughing*
What is one thing that can always make you laugh? My favourite Femme Models Amber Emery, Kirsten Visima and Stella Nicole
Finish the sentence…
If I could change one thing about myself I would change… My overly analytical nature. I seriously can’t help it. I’m sure it can be a positive quality for certain jobs, but for everyday life, it can tend to get in the way!
My favourite part about myself is…My eyes. It’s where I hold my emotion, my soul, and my passion – three of the most important things that are a part of me.
My favourite restaurant is… The Port. It’s right by the lake and they have an amazing seasonal menu, complete with some really fun cocktails!
The first thing I notice about a guy is his… Eyes and smile. I know that’s two things, but we’ll just say I notice them simultaneously
Lastly, where do you see yourself in five years? In 5 years (or even less) I plan on starting my own business. My personal success is extremely important to me… Plus, I like to be the boss!
