Sunniva was a model whose individual path was apparent. She was unlike most of the models I saw back stage and worked with on set. She always had a book out that she was studying. She didn’t carry on small chat, she developed a relationship with whomever she spoke with.
Although she and I didn’t have many opportunities to work together, I’ve always made it a point to let her know how much I respect her and the work she’s done modeling. I’m glad to have the opportunity now to share a little bit more about her with all of you.
Thanks to Craig Palmer of The Cultural Omnivore for making this interview happen! And thank you Sunniva for your honesty.

I adore Donald Simrock. He and I first met backstage at Dolce & Gabbana’s runway show. Donald not only had me in stitches, laughing the entire hour we worked together, my tired and dull skin, after weeks of long hours working the runways combined with poor nutrition, came back to life and radiated. He was gifted, kind and insightful, honest and hilarious. He didn’t just apply makeup, he transformed me.
You better believe I paid attention to him after that experience. It was obvious to me that Donald was not only talented, he was gifted.
When Donald moved to Los Angeles, I stayed in contact and we developed a friendship. One that I hold dear.
I’ve always wanted to interview Donald and find out more about his process. I’ve never met another makeup artist who works harder than Donald works off set. He and I have gone on countless trips to the 99 cent store and other odd markets to purchase makeup and research materials. I sit in his house and go through every book on file to see what he’s marked up and what he’s currently drawing from for inspiration. Donald simply doesn’t stop creating and coming up with concepts to execute. And, like most artists of substance, he has a generosity of spirit that is palatable when you enter the room.
Craig Palmer, The Cultural Omnivore, and I sent our questions and Donald answered…
Kristen Kotik has experience that few scouts do. She used to model. Not only does she know the challenges models face, because she’s faced them too, she’s learned how to navigate and impart that knowledge to other girls moving up the ranks.
Currently the director of scouting for Stars Model Management and starring on E!’s newest reality tv show, Scouted, Kristen took the time to answer Craig Palmer and my questions every new model getting started needs to know.

We all have that person in our lives that steps up to the plate and advocates when no one else does. If we’re lucky, we have more than one. Trudi Tapscott has taken advocating to a whole new level.
I first met Trudi walking into Vogue’s offices. I was meant to meet directly with Anna but when I showed up the office told me to go to Trudi’s office first.
