Hi Vanessa, thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. Please share with our readers a little about yourself and where you’re from?
My name is Vanessa Russo, and I am a 21-year-old freelance model from Toronto, Ontario. I am currently also a full-time psychology student at the University of Guelph-Humber. I started modelling about 2 years ago, and I am so grateful for all the incredibly opportunities that I have had because of it! Something that everyone should know about me is that regardless of the serious look that I portray in my photos, in person I am the girl that always has a smile on her face.
What is your fashion style like?
Oh jheeez that’s a tough one. I feel like my fashion style is subjective to the occasion. Most days I like to dress in tight-fit clothing because it shows off my body shape. On the other hand, I also have plenty of days where I’ll slap on my brother’s hoodie with a pair of leggings and call it a day.
Which are your favorite beauty brands and products?
Also such a hard question because I practically live at Sephora, and there are so many beauty products and brands to love! Some of my favourite products/brands for daily face makeup are: Anastasia Beverly Hills HD Forever Foundation, Urban Decay Naked Weightless Concealer, Laura Mercier Setting Powder, and Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. Buying a Kylie Lipkit is also the best lipstick investment you will ever make because the formula literally lasts all day. My favourite shades for my skin tone are Apricot, Maliboo, Exposed, Candy K, and Dolce.
What is the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?
The funniest thing that has ever happened to me is WAY too embarrassing to be published on the internet.. that’s a straight best friend type of secret.
How much of a foodie are you?
100% foodie! I literally never stop eating. I have been vegetarian for almost one year now, and I also have the biggest sweet tooth. If you ever hang out with me, you better bring your appetite!
What kind of movies do you enjoy watching?
Ok everyone is about to think I’m really weird, but I actually don’t watch movies, or even TV at all. I feel like I don’t have the time to watch someone else live a scripted life when I could be living my own life, you know? I guess if I was forced to watch a movie, it must at least be filled with suspense.
If you could learn anything in this world, what will it be?
I would love to learn how to speak every language in the world. This way, I could travel the entire world and never feel like an outsider.
How will you describe an ideal date?
To me, an ideal date is one that the man takes the time to plan out properly. I hate the, “So what do you wanna do?” kind of guys. Don’t get me wrong, I love putting on a dress and a pair of heels, but these are also not the necessities for a perfect date. My ideal date is one that involves good company, delicious food, and deep conversations at 2 am that lead to sunrise. It doesn’t get any better than that.
It is a pleasure to feature you Vanessa. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Why thank you, the pleasure was all mine! Personally, I think that there are no sexier qualities in a person than confidence and ambition. To me, “sexy” means being comfortable in your own skin, being open, yet mysterious, and being motivated to reach your highest possible potential.
