Modeling Agency: Elite Manila
two + seven: What sorts of projects have you been involved in in the past? What was your favorite?
Thistle Guevara: I did ramp modelling, magazine editorials and print ads. Of course, my favorite would be print ads and magazine editorials simply because you see the outcome of your work in tangible form, say, in pictures. It’s always a challenge to be able to show your creativity in how you’ll be able to make a masterpiece out of that picture and how you’ll be able to sell or make that product look good .
2+7: How did you end up in modeling?
TG: Someone approached me while I was at the mall. Years ago. I didn’t take modeling seriously up until 2010. It took a while before I got used to the demands of modeling.
2+7: How would you describe your sense of style?
TG: My philosophy is—to look like a woman you have to look like a queen. I like looking regal, say, I pair a plain shirt with an artsy and big piece of jewelry, and my hair is just pulled back. I like Grecian dress designs. I love gold accessories, I like the color black. And I am not afraid to go against the norm. I wear what looks good on my body rather than wear current trends even if they don’t suit me.
2+7: What do you think about Manila’s growing fashion scene?
TG: I am impressed that Manila is starting to love their own. I love that more people are able to express their individual style through clothing.
2+7: What’s your idea of beauty?
TG: Ideally, beauty is symmetry. Realistically, beauty is knowing how to work with your best assets.
2+7: Where do you see yourself 3 years from now?
TG: Being a household name in my field of profession. Striving to be my best while wearing different hats, I hope my hardwork will soon pay off.
2+7: Last 5 songs, played on your iPod?
Ellie Goulding-Under the Sheets
Fugees-Ready or Not
Drake-Still got it
Rihanna and Jay-z-Talk that talk
2+7: If you weren’t modeling, what would you be doing?
TG: I’d be a lawyer. Or a Banker.
