Chic Management meet up with the Brazilian beauty Natalia Machado Medeiros.
1. Where were you discovered?
It’s a long story… but to sum it up I was discovered in Brazil, in Minas Gerais, on the farm that I lived on with my parents.
2. Your ultimate escape anywhere in the world?
For me, nature sets me free and makes me forget the problems. Anything with nature is my ultimate escape.
3. You secret weapon?
My secret weapon I think is the mix of determination, focus, positive thinking and faith.
4. What is your star sign and how do you feel it reflects your personality?
I am a Virgo, kkkk, difficult sign. It reflects in my personality the connection I have with myself. I am quite a perfectionist, I want everything to be right and always strive to achieve my goals.

Where are you from?
Hi my name is Kseniya, I am from Belarus and I live there with my family.
What is your favourite character?
My favourite character is Spiderman, but the older one.
What would you be doing if you were not modelling ?
Before modelling I wanted to become a dentist.
What do you love about the world?
I like travelling, good music, spent time with my friends and family and I like to watch people draw somethings. So far I just want to see a kangaroo, because I like them aha. In this world I love that everything can be so different and everyone can find something new.
What has been your favourite work you have done?
I have a lot of favourite shoots. One of my favourite ones was in Barcelona for L’Official. We worked on the seaside and the team was very good. There was a nice atmosphere and everything was very warm. Another great shoot was one in Korea for a Korean brand, that was a campaign and we worked on the ‘Museum on Sun.’ It was amazing because I saw beautiful landscapes, with mountains and the weather was raining but it a romantic way. Haha I loved it a lot.
A Chic Exclusive
Jet setting around the world the last month, the beauty Brooke Durrant catches up with Chic recapping some of her favourite moments from the fashion week circuit.
Read full catch up below.
Brooke Durrant –
Where have you been travelling to over the last Fashion Month circuit?
New York, Milan & Paris!
What was one of your favorite shows?
Definitely Comme des Garcons! It was such a dream to walk this seasons show!
The most hectic backstage moment?
The most hectic moment happened backstage in Milan at Francesco Scognamiglio! Ellen von Unwerth introduced herself to me and took a boomerang which she later posted to her insta! She is someone I really admire and look up to in the industry and having the opportunity to chat with her was definitely something I’ll never forget!
With a whirl of street style photographers everyday what’s your favourite outfit you put together running two and from shows?
You’ll almost always catch me in an oversized hoody or T-shirt and docs! I’m big on comfort, especially when running around for castings, fittings and shows!
Your favourite look of the season?
I loved that there was a clear texture and layer play this season! Y Project had so many killer pieces as did Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent and Rick Owens! But I think it would be hard to deny Comme des Garcons and that epic show! It took texture and layering to a whole new level! Wearing art pieces! It was definitely my favourite look I wore and my favourite show!
When you are not at castings or shows what is your ideal situation while on the circuit?
Hanging out with my friends and trying to immerse myself in whichever city I’m in! I like to steer clear of the typical tourist way of experiencing a city and op for a more authentic experience (which can be difficult with English as my only language, but the challenge is fun and comedic at times!)

What’s your background?
I am from Argentina, I have been in the industry for a few years now…
So far I have lived in NY, Paris, London, Milan, Hamburg, Tokyo. I like that it gives me the possibility to race to know different cultures, languages and people!! I reconsider myself to be a curious and sensitive person and I really enjoy the details that each place I travel to offers me.
Favourite spot in Australia you have come across so far?
It’s my first time in Australia. I am really still exploring.
I really like this city!!!! The people!!! The form to work!! The energy. I’m very grateful!!
What’s your signature style when you are not off to castings?
When I’m not working I like to enjoy the new sites, to know the city and all that it offers, to see friends, to skate. I also have a great passion for cooking and art.
What do you love about the industry?
In Argentina, I was doing various projects, creating material for the modelling industry with friends, videos and production. I find it a very interesting industry.
What I like about it is to see the particular artworks process. You see the creation come together. In all the cities these all change and are different from one another. This seems very interesting to me.
