I am so pleased to present to you one Fantabulous Top Model: Leandra Breen

Q: Please tell us about yourself and what you consider your defining characteristics as a model that makes you unique and recognizable from the rest.

LB: Well it’s not easy to be unique when the whole grid runs to the same newest skins and shapes ;-).
I think the key is the whole package. When you feel all good and ‘found yourself’ in your appearance, then you found your look. I searched a long time, but now I found my style. I would describe myself as a classic model. I value precision, perfect poses and focused work on the catwalk.

Q: What is your view of SL Fashion and how did you venture into the modelling industry?

LB: I started with some contests in the Summer 2009 (woooo that was exciting) but no modelling at all. Some weeks later, I had the pleasure to meet Rena Mascot. She taught me the basics of modeling, the lessons have accompanied me ever since. I was looking for good agencies for training classes and graduated in February 2010. Learning should be ongoing for a model because there is something new to learn every day.

The SL Fashion Industry is in my opinion the biggest market in SL. There are so many high talented Designers and I admire them very much. Each designer has his/her own style and each different styles are beautiful like a rainbow. I know from Nando how much work has to be done for one new dress. It is a lot of work. My advice for new models is show your respect for the designers and their clothes with your best work.

Q:  What are some of your accomplishments within the modelling industry and describe what would be one of the most defining moments of your modelling career?

LB: My biggest accomplishment is that I am now a well known model. No matter which tag is over my head, I know that I am sure in my work on the catwalk. Nevertheless, my greatest success is of course to be chosen as a finalist ‘Miss Germany 2011’ for Miss Virtual World 2011 competition.

Q:  You have certainly established yourself well within the modelling industry. Please tell us what you believe are the essential elements to being a successful model. Do you have any advice for aspiring models?

LB: There are hundreds of beautiful models in SL that want to take part in shows and want to be famous. But to be honest, modelling is more than walking in clothes, it is for me a kind of art too.

Also there are different kind of models. Photo models, contest models and runway models.

As a runway model you present the dresses of talented designers. Follow their instructions if required and ‘sell’ the dress on the stage with your appearance. Therefore, you should try to get the best education and styling skills.

Learn to deal with the lag, ask experienced models for help or suggestions and – very important – stay away from gossip and be always kind and charming. Your Attitude is your biggest point to make yourself unique. If you lose a contest, okay, cheer for the winners and share their happiness.
That is what makes you known in a good way.

Q:  What do you like and dislike about modelling?

LB: I like the variety of clothes and shows, each show is something special and exciting. And I like styling the dresses for a show. Sometimes it takes me hours finding exactly the accessories I am looking for a special dress.

I absolutely dislike Jealousy, Envy and bad attitude. Having a good attitude, being punctual and reliable shows your respect and respect is at least a thing we should have for each other, if in SL or RL.

Q:  What motivates you to be a model? Who inspires you the most and what is your inspiration?

LB: The inspiration comes for me from the wonderful designers in SL and RL. I watch the RL trends carefully and find it again in SL Styles. Often I see a dress in a SL shop and think over the styling I would do for it, or I see an amazing RL dress and discuss with Nando if it would be a dress for SL too. Here I named one of my biggest inspirations, my partner Nando Korobase.

Q: What are your plans for the future? Any future shows or projects we can look forward to?

LB: Yes of course. I have plans for directing a new fabulous Show with BeStyle. I look forward for the Modavia Fashion Week and I go on with my daily work for Angel Dessous. In October, the MVW finals start and I will give my best in the contest. Wanna know a secret? I am very seldom excited before a contest, but MVW is a special thing and yes wow, I am excited :-)).

Q:  Is there anything else that you would like to add?

LB: I would like to add a thank you for Nando, for always being here for me and to my friends in SL for making this ‘second life’ to the wonderful place as it is for me.
Love you <3.

And thank you CSLTM team for the honor of being in the model spotlight :-))).
