Camilla Christensen is a fairly new face, but is already booking great editorial and commercial work. She sat down to chat with WWD to talk about her career so far. When asked if she ever thought she could model, she said, “No, not really. Everybody’s kinda pretty in Denmark.”
Here are our highlights:
WWD: You’ve shot with some of fashion’s top photographers. What was it like shooting with Mario Sorrenti for 032c?
C.C.: It was amazing. We shot for two days [this past winter] in a studio with a snake and a goose. The goose was really cool. It was like, food porn kind of — I was covered in whipped cream, milk and all kinds of weird things. Mario was good to work with. You’ll see it when it comes out….I was covered in dirt and cherries, and then I had a snake — a snake in my mouth. It was crazy. I took, like, four showers that day.
WWD: How about Ellen von Unwerth? She shot you for German Glamour and Vs magazine.
C.C.: She’s always super fun. She’s like, this crazy, beautiful lady. I don’t know — she’s so happy and she gets all this excitement. When I work with her, it’s not really about modeling — at least that’s how I feel. It’s about acting or getting into character. You have to do something and be something.
WWD: You also walked Jeremy Scott’s recent fall show.
C.C.: Yeah, it was my first show. [My agency] wanted to wait, and I’m new. But it was great. I’m very naked in it. I don’t mind walking in high heels, though. I was on my tippy-toes a lot in ballet.
WWD: What are some of your goals, in modeling or otherwise?
C.C.: I want a decent life. I like to work hard to have a good life and to make money. I want to be able to give my [future] kids whatever they want. I wanna travel a lot, too. That’s why I love this work. I’ve been to Mexico and, of course, L.A., all the European cities….I just went to Israel. I just started modeling and I love it. I’ll do it as long as possible, and I want to go as far as I can go. You have to be lucky, and it has to be the right time. People have to like you.
