Eva is as a free spirit and full time model, using her career to travel the globe. From Covent Garden and catwalks of London fashion week, to photo-shoots on the beaches of Mexico and South America, to partying in the nightclubs of Eastern Europe and Ibiza… her travel itinerary is never-ending. Here Eva shares her lust for life, travel and lingerie...
Hi Eva, tell me about yourself:
Well, I’m a model signed to Leni’s Models here in London. I’m currently living in Covent Garden with my friend who’s also a model. I’m originally from the Czech Republic and have only been in London for a couple of months. I usually only stay in a country for about 3months before moving on but I love London so much… I’m tempted to stay a little longer. There is so much to do here! I recently went to Madame Butterfly at the Royal Opera House, I thought it was going to be dull but I pushed myself to try it and it was actually very good. I’d recommend reading the program first though, they sing in Italian so, unless you can understand Italian, you’ll need to know what’s going on beforehand!
Casual and maybe a little boyish. I live out of my suitcase so I tend to wear a lot of black and neutral colours, I need select items that go together easily and colours just complicate things. I love All Saints in London, it’s simple essentials but innovative. If I could wear anything I’d love to own Balmain and Alexander McQueen. Alexander McQueen is my favourite designer. I’ve been to his Savage Beauty exhibition but I would love to go again.
Would you say your lingerie fits into that style?
Yes, I love simple but innovative bras, like ones with nice backs. I don’t usually wear push up bras or anything, just simple everyday bras with a difference. Obviously I have some sexier, lacier, black ‘bedroom lingerie’ but it’s not something I wear right now.
And how about your swimwear?
Yes, I love crochet bikinis - I have the same one in back and cream. Thats all I have, I don't like printed fabrics or the neon bikinis that seem to be in fashion at the moment.
Do you have a favourite set of lingerie?
Yes, at the moment it's a grey and black set from Oysho. Its a simple soft triangle bra and Brazilian knickers with a little bit of black lace around the edges. I actually wore it when I did my Polaroids with Lenis.
How do you feel about your body image?
I'm happy with my body. I do a lot of sport so it helps me to stay in shape and stay positive. I try everything - yoga, kickboxing, climbing .... I want to try new things in every country I visit and thats includes my workouts.
Intelligence of course! .... and a great smile.
Is there a quote or saying you like to live by?
