The modeling world is a difficult job to crack, with the top models spending years working their way to the catwalks of Paris and Milan. Arina Bernardini has been working hard to achieve her dream of becoming one of the top models in the world.

Turning Her
Dreams Into
the Catwalk
of Reality

Arina Bernardini is a career woman who believes it is possible to have it all as a wife and model. Her private life remains closely guarded, but she does explain her love of living a simple life helps her become driven at work. When asked about her hobbies, Arina Bernardini begins with her love of reading. She goes on to explain she loves taking part in the daily activities of family life. Married life has been a steadying influence on the model's life, with the everyday activities of cleaning and cooking keeping the successful model humble.

What Arina Bernardini believes we should all know is that events like International Women's Day are designed to empower. Empowerment is an important word, with society accepting all participating members regardless of gender. Arina has taken control of her life and hopes her story has the power to inspire women at all stages of life. Inspiring other women has become a driving force behind Arina's own career.

Arina Bernardini explains marriage and happy family life have not dulled her desire to achieve success. In fact, Bernardini remains driven to achieve her dreams of modeling and acting success. Alongside her coming appearances at Europe's leading fashion weeks, Arina is set to appear in a high-profile TV campaign in Italy. The move to TV is of particular interest for a woman who believes there is much more to come in her life and career. Arina dreams of appearing in a Steven Spielberg movie as the next step in a career that looks to be improving every year.

Where are you right now?

Right now I am in my house in Tuscany with my family. We are on vacation and I’m enjoying every moment.

Tell us a bit about yourself, your dreams, and aspirations before you started on your journey to fame.

Before I began my modeling career at 17, my dreams were to successfully pass my exams and go to university. I then fell in love with modeling and created a new dream for myself. I am happy to say that I successfully made this dream into reality! Since signing a contract with my first modeling agency, I now dream of achieving success in this industry.

You’ve got over 606K Followers on Instagram. Do you remember when you had just 1 follower? How did you get from here to there? What were some of the daily secrets that helped you grow such a following?

Honestly, I don’t remember a period of time with a small number of followers. In the last 9 or 10 years they have grown gradually and I am grateful for each and every one of my followers for their interest in me, especially since I run this page all on my own with no assistants!

It was international women's day last month. What does women empowerment mean to you?

Women empowerment means an equal opportunity for us to participate in society. The process in which women can have power and control over their own lives is important to me.

How does it feel to be influential to other people?

I feel a huge responsibility but it is very inspiring and rewarding at the same time. Everytime I receive gratitude or I know that I have done something to benefit another person, it makes me so happy! It just inspires me to go further and do better!

What are some of your hobbies?

I love to read.

Hobbies that you normally wouldn’t tell anyone about?

I like ironing and cleaning. It's true! I like when everything is in order.

What makes you feel sexy?

Compliments from my husband.

Outfits you may have worn on the job - Times when you’ve felt at your best.

I adore suits in a “men style” for women. In my everyday life I usually lean towards more chic casual or sporty casual styles.

What are some things a guy can do to get someone of your caliber? Especially when there are so many men competing for your attention.

Back in the old days, since I'm married now, I would say someone who takes pride in their appearance, is a decent man with good manners and someone with a good sense of humor. “Bad boys” have never been my type, I love someone who’s a gentleman.

What was the most romantic gift you have ever gotten?

When my husband gifted me our dog. It was a very touching surprise.

What is something you’ve learned since becoming famous that you wish someone had told you?

In this world, there are so many good people, but in addition to that there are also negative and upsetting people. You gotta learn to just ignore them.

Where haven’t you been that you would like to go?

USA and Great Britain!

If Steven Spielberg were to film a biography film on your life, who would you want to play you in the movie?

Wow! Great question! I would love for it to be Keira Knightley! She is such a talented and beautiful actress.

Where can fans/followers expect to see you next?

There will be a big advertising spot on Italian TV soon, but I can't name the product yet!
