Model Moment: Wild Child Marcela Vivan

Meet Brazilian model Marcela Vivan, a skater wild child from São Paulo with a charming accent and piercing green eyes. We were fortunate enough to catch up with her in between tropical set changes in our Los Angeles photo studio. Wearing a white bodycon, crunching on Takis and sporting a bright pink pout, she gave us the lowdown on all things Marcela.

STYLUST: When did you start modeling?
MARCELA: I never actually wanted to start modeling, but everyone kept trying to push me into it. One day my dad, who knows everyone, called to tell me he met someone at a bar in São Paulo. He was like, “I met this guy who got married to Gisele’s manager and I told him you were really pretty.” They didn’t believe him so he asked me to send him a photo with my phone so I sent him a photo like this… (she pretends to take a selfie)

STYLUST: Where have you traveled so far?
MARCELA: My first trip was to Argentina, Japan and then Milan. My mom traveled with me for a year or two because my dad would never allow me to go by myself. When I turned 17, I made my first trip to Europe alone and then New York City and then landed in LA.

STYLUST: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live?
MARCELA: Brazil! It’s my home.

STYLUST: What’s your fave place in LA?
MARCELA: My boyfriend lives in the OC so the OC. I love going to the beach!

STYLUST: How would you describe your style?
MARCELA: I’m not sure. Every time I come to work at bebe I’m wearing something baggy. So maybe rocker? But sometimes I dress up like a little boy. So maybe somewhere between rocker and grunge.

STYLUST: What’s the perfect weekend outfit?
MARCELA: Anything comfortable that I can put a bikini under.

STYLUST: What do you love most about modeling?
MARCELA: Traveling to London and Tokyo. You get amused by everything!

STYLUST: What is something most people don’t know about you?
MARCELA: I’m into videogames and skateboarding. I’m obsessed with Zelda to the point that I’m thinking about getting a Zelda tattoo.

STYLUST: Any advice for girls who want to go into modeling?
MARCELA: Don’t think it’s that easy because it’s not. I gave up my home in Brazil, I lost my friends and I never see my family. Yes, traveling is amazing but modeling is definitely not glamorous.
