Friday chats w/ Vivianne Tess

We chat to model & influencer Vivianne Tess.  

You have a beautiful portfolio, do you have a favourite shoot to date?

Yes, a few years ago I shot an editorial with Dutch photographer Carlijn Jacobs. We went hiking to find ‘Atlantis’ in Ibiza, a secret mythical cove. We found it and we shot a Helmut Newton inspired editorial. These are my favourite pictures!  

What would you say is inspiring you in life right now?

Paris. Living here makes me feel like I can grow unlimited as a person but also in my career. Coming from a small town in Holland, the city is full of opportunities and it is exciting to wake up here and see what the day brings.    

You’re based out of one of our favourite cities. How would spend your ideal day in Paris?

My perfect day would just be a day strolling around the city. I love Paris and there is always a new neighbourhood to explore. My favourite is Montmartre. I love to walk around the Sacré-Coeur and sit down in a little café for a coffee.    

Best piece of advice you’ve received? 

One of my friends told me to never use the words ‘I can’t’.    

If you could switch lives with someone for a day who would it be?

I would like to be a man for one day. Just to know how it is to think like a man and to workout in a men’s body. Experience the differences!    

A book that everyone should read?
