What legacy would you like to leave behind for yourself?

“People already call me a legend, icon style yet I don’t want to be remembered as only that. I want my work to be an everlasting inspiration, and that the influence I have as a socialite keeps being remembered as remarkable for what I did in the countless events I attended worldwide. I don’t want to be remembered by my looks but by my brain and my actions.”

“I like to try new things all the time such as fashion to music, sports, and a lot more. Lately, I’ve been working as a Sports journalist, focusing more in the World Rally Championship. I want to keep investing my time not only in fashion but in this specific field, motorsport. I never know where my Socialite influence will take me next.”
