Interview: Introducing Diva Choice’s Ambassador Gi Gi and BTS Action
With the snow over I am here to warm you up with the heat from the melanated goddess, Gi Gi. I am excited to write this blog feature dedicated to the face of Diva Choice. I have been fortunate to work with this beauty and watch a beautiful relationship develop with Gi Gi and Diva Choice , which ultimately led to her becoming a brand ambassador for the luxury boutique. If you are familiar with Diva Choice’s events then you know that beautiful models are never far from being apart of speaking volumes for the brand with bringing the products to life. A close relationship with the award winning modelling agency Face 4 Music has always helped the brand, to find great models for different projects and witness them go on to grow. Gi Gi came to a casting for Diva Choice last year October, and the entire team were in awe at not only her undeniable beauty and chocolate glowing complexion but she had a humble nature about her that was so refreshing which has always remained.
I had a conversation with Gi Gi behind the scenes and had a quick interview to let you all get to know the glorious Gi Gi in her words. I asked her about the message she would give to all of the divas out there reading. She expressed with great passion.
” It’s OK to be un-apologetically you and act like the boss lady that you are! If you have a dream, go after it. Stay positive and be grateful for what you have. “
On Sunday 18th March, we curved through the snow to execute the official photo shoot for The Gi Gi collection which will be showcased exclusively at Diva Choice’s next event Cupcakes & Cocktails this SATURDAY. I saw a sneak peek of some of the untouched photos and they looked absolutely stunning. Check out Worl Mag behind the lens as Gi Gi gave us all kinds of vibes and vogue in front of the camera.
What inspired you to become a model? ” I fell into modelling by accident but I believe it was meant to be. I studied art, media and photography and I went to fashion school so I’ve always been around creative people in shoots, shows and events. One day, I was on set for a music video and I got scouted by an agent who took it from there and then the rest is history as they say. What I like about it is that it enables me to explore my creativity, whilst being the subject. I see myself as different characters depending on the set, so it also helps me to explore different sides of me.”
How has Diva Choice empowered you? ” My journey with Diva Choice included many workshops, rehearsals, shoots, a fashion show and now my own collection. This means I gained knowledge, skills, memories and a network. How much more can you empower someone? “
What has influenced the GI Gi collection? ” I’m a summer baby, I love to travel and people say I bring the sunshine with me everywhere I go so the Gigi Collection is a visual representation of that. It’s all about happiness and good vibes, with a touch of sexiness too. Just picture pool parties, festivals and beach holidays – I picked pieces which remind me of these things, even though I would still wear them in the UK. The readers can expect to SLAY HARD and have all eyes on them when they wear the pieces.”
Tell us something weird and interesting about yourself? ” I have two tattoos – I got them both done on the same day, one after the other and I got addicted straight away! One is a circle which has no meaning at all. I just got it done… (That’s for the weird part). The other one is a quote I got from a painting I used to look at when I was little – it was hanging in the house I grew up in so it reminds me of my family and my childhood. The tattoo is the exact same font as the painting. (So that’s the interesting part I guess). They’re only about six months old but I already want more!”
From Diva Choice’s swim wear to the body bling jewellery selection. Gi Gi posed for a number of looks she collaboratively put together with Diva Choice and NLPR, in a twist of summer loving looks you can wear.
Intimate events are the perfect way to network and build great relationships over fabulous cocktails. Come along and meet myself, the extended Diva Choice team, Worl Mag’s creative team and Gi Gi the amazing brand ambassador herself. The collection will launch that day and so much will be in store especially for you including deals. Follow @worlmag and @divachoice to be the first to know about more information.
