We’re back with the fifth installment of our increasingly popular series Meet the Muse. This time around we’ve called upon the talents of Parisian photographer Mathieu Vilasco to capture some friendly intimate moments with Carla Grelier. Seen in a number of urban settings, Carla sports pieces from Yasmine Eslami, ACNE Studios, KENZO, Nike, the POOL aoyama, Supreme x Champion and A Bathing Ape.

To give you an even deeper insight into Carla’s life, we asked her both relevant and offbeat questions. Check out her answers below and see the last installment featuring Melrose here.

Your first modeling gig?

In London for Perfect Wedding magazine. I was 18 years old and I was wearing a beautiful wedding dress. It was a wonderful first experience!

Your ideal Saturday night?

It depends on my mood – either in a place with good music or chilling with friends and a great cocktail.

Your greatest hidden talent?

Hmm… it might be better if it stays hidden.

Your first thought each morning?

Where are my sneakers? Let’s go for a run! My favorite way to wake up is a sunny run along the banks of the Seine listening to music. Love it!

Your favorite wardrobe item?

I don’t go out without either my boots or my Perfecto. Seriously, my wardrobe is all black and I’m a fan of leather pants.

Your go-to designer?

Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane.

Your top holiday destination?

Thailand and Bali. Actually, it’s been such a long time since I’ve been on holiday that even a snowboard trip would make me happy.

Your best piece of advice?

To be honest and be yourself.

Your most embarrassing memory?

If only there was just one…

Your favorite meal?

A platter of seafood.

Your own personal motto?

Always remember to fall asleep with a dream and wake up with a purpose.

Your life ambition?

Travel as much as possible and live every day as if it would be the last. I’m already worried about getting old too fast, so at the end of the year, once I finish my studies, I’m planning to go abroad.

Yourself in one sentence?

(laughs) There are so many people in my head that it’s impossible to describe me in one sentence.
