FASHION - INTERVIEW
by Beren Dere
Devon took the first steps to be a model in her mother's boutique when she was two years old. This interest continued throughout the youth years and in 2018, she became a professional model. I talked to Devon Christenson to learn more about her modeling career, lifestyle, and future plans. Enjoy the interview!
How did you decide to be a professional model? Who or what inspired you?
I modeled for my mom's kids clothing line/boutique from the age of 2 till I couldn't fit in kid's sizes any longer... Over the years, after all the photoshoots and fashion shows I had been in, I decided I wanted to continue modeling professionally because I had a ton of experience at such a young age and also enjoyed it, of course.
When did you sign with an agency?
I modeled independently until recently, when I signed with The Green Agency in Miami early on this year, 2018.
What was your first job? How did it feel?
My first job was for a lifestyle commercial for public television. It felt like it came natural to me though I had never modeled on film professionally. Overall had a fun time.
What is your dream modeling job?
My dream model job would for sure be to star in a music video for a big time artist.
What magazine would you like to be on the cover of?
Sports Illustrated. I've always loved the beachy&natural, yet sexy and flirty vibes they create.
What do you enjoy most of the modeling?
My favorite thing about modeling is playing the part, getting dolled up, and getting cool content. Also, the traveling involved excites me!
What are your hobbies?
I love the beach. I do everything from surfing to laying out in the sun to long beach walks/runs. I also love dancing, I've been dancing since I can remember. I also guess you could count being a passionate vegan as a hobby it takes up alot of my time.
What is your personal style?
I normally dress comfortably yet stylish. I like to keep it simple with a touch of beachy/boho.
How do you keep in shape?
Dancing is a fun way to workout without even knowing it! Other than that I love a good lagree, spin or yoga class a couple times a week. And being vegan helps fuel my body with fresh food for good energy and health.
What is in your purse or backpack?
Besides the basics like my wallet, phone & keys... I always keep a pair of sunglasses, a chapstick, and hairties in there. Keep it light n' simple.
Who are your favorite designers?
To be honest, I don't keep up with designers so I don't have a favorite!
Same goes for photographers... Don't have a fav.
Love oneteaspoon, they're the only jean shorts I wear! Also love Planet Blue.
Fruit and/or sourdough toast with avo on top :)
Love it all.
Blue Lagoon with Brooke Shields.
Favorite city to visit? To shop?
Fav city to visit & shop at would definitely be LA.
If you weren't a model, what would you do?
Aside from modeling, I'm also a business student in college & a clothing brand owner! Though modeling hasn't stopped me, if I weren't modeling I would probably spend 100% of my time focusing on these two things.
Favorite social media platform? IG info?
My favorite is Instagram. Find me at @devonchristenson
What advice would you give someone starting out?
Don't change for anyone. Be your confident self & the right people & jobs will come your way when you put yourself out there.
Thank you Devon.
