Sierrah Hudson

Harper’s Bazaar: How many fashion shows have you walked so far, and do you have a favorite event?

Sierrah Hudson: I have participated in over 10 fashion shows worldwide and I would have to say my favorite is being in my backyard and hometown at LA Fashion Week.

Harper’s Bazaar: What do you find most challenging about modeling?

Sierrah Hudson: I find most challenging walking for certain designers that may have a uniqueness that you are not comfortable with. You have to just keep going and have fun with it.

Harper’s Bazaar: What advice would you give to other aspiring models?

Sierrah Hudson: Believe in yourself and never compare yourself to others. Remember, attitude determines your altitude.


Raynah Hudson

Harper’s Bazaar: What made you want to be a teen model? What do you like most about modeling?

Raynah Hudson: I have always loved being photographed. Growing up watching my older sister model, becoming one has always been a dream of mine. I enjoy getting the images back from the runway, it makes it all worth it. I also enjoy working with many different and unique designers.

Harper’s Bazaar: In addition to modeling, what are a few other things you are passionate about?

Raynah Hudson: Dyslexia Awareness. I was diagnosed with dyslexia when I was very young and I have worked very hard for just about everything that would come easy to a person without dyslexia. I also love being the founder of Rayn Cosmetics, my personal skincare line which helps teach fellow peers about the importance of skincare and provide them with clean vegan products.

Harper’s Bazaar: Do you have any special news about yourself you would like to share with us?

Raynah Hudson: I currently hold the title of Royal International Miss Italy Jr Teen and I am competing at Internationals in July of 2023.

Maddie Delbridge

Harper’s Bazaar: Why did you start modeling and acting?

Maddie Delbridge: I am deeply passionate about the performing arts, and celebrate every opportunity to leverage creativity and storytelling to bring people together from every background to find common ground. I’ve been privileged to have had the opportunity to perform and connect to diverse audiences across different media in different countries – as a vocalist, actress, musician, model, dancer, and speaker – and always aspire to find new ways to create human connection through the arts. I am committed to building community through shared experiences and storytelling, and especially love the way fashion and music transcend cultural differences to make us a more unified community across the globe. Creating art is a privilege, and I try to bring this mindset to each of my projects and performances.


Annie Delbridge

Harper’s Bazaar: What did you learn from your modeling/acting experience?

Annie Delbridge: I feel blessed to belong to a family that loves and supports the performing arts in all its forms – theatre, music, singing, dancing, modeling, acting, fashion, and more. I’ve been really fortunate to have the opportunity to perform as a vocalist, dancer, actor, and pianist on numerous stages in many venues across the country, from NYC to LA, and I’m always amazed to feel the powerful connection between performer and audience no matter where we are. I think the arts and fashion are one of the best ways to share a positive, inclusive message for all people from all walks of life, and I’m enjoying every minute of this journey!



Gioia Tabea Vogt

Model: Gioia Tabea Vogt @gioia.t_2005. Photographer: Luxx from LILY KOZ Studio @LilyKozStudio. Dress: JJ Chloé @jjchloe_official. Headpiece: CHRISANTHI COUTURE @chrisanthicouture_


Harper’s Bazaar: When and why you started modeling? What do you like most about modeling?

Gioia Tabea Vogt: I started modeling when I was 11 years old. I walked a runway show for Alora Safari at NYFW. It was a big opportunity and a great experience and I mostly did it so I could tell my grandkids about this adventure one day. What I like most about modeling, is that you can work all around the world and therefore discover new places. And you meet a lot of different people, with whom you can share a very unique experience and accordingly form a unique bond.


Harper’s Bazaar: How many fashion shows have you walked now? What do you find most challenging about modeling?

Gioia Tabea Vogt: I don’t know exactly how many shows I did so far. I was part of the NYFW in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2023. For me the most challenging thing about modeling is to handle criticism and to stay calm in stressful situations.


Harper’s Bazaar: In addition to modeling, what are a few other things you are passionate about?

Gioia Tabea Vogt: I also enjoy to read and I write my own stories. Besides that I like traveling, horse riding and to spend time with my family and my friends.


Harper’s Bazaar: Looking forward, what would you like to be doing in the next few years? When you grow up?

Gioia Tabea Vogt: I’d like to travel a lot and also write my first book at some point. Maybe I’ll also proceed with modeling as a hobby. But mostly I really want to get to know myself even better and grow as a person. Because I think that whatever you do with your life the most important thing is to be pleased with who you are.



Gabriella Diaz

Model: Gabriella Diaz @modelgabbi. Photographer: Luxx from LILY KOZ Studio @LilyKozStudio. Dress: JJ Chloé @jjchloe_official


Harper’s Bazaar: Tell us about yourself. When and why did you start modeling/acting?

Gabriella Diaz: My interest in modeling and acting was sparked by watching television shows, movies and fashion shows. It opened my eyes to the amazing world of entertainment. With time, that love led me to participate in New York Fashion Week and in background work for television shows.

At the age of six, I started modeling for highly talented designers and their production teams – they have included Cabriolle, Childrens Wonderland, La Belle Kidz, Marc Defang, Mila Hoffman, Rock n Mouse, and YS Clothier. In addition, I have appeared on two magazine covers, Dixie and Indi-Kids. At the same time, I also worked as a background actor for several television shows and movies. I am honored to be a part of this industry and look forward to continuing my journey for as long as I can.


Harper’s Bazaar: What did you learn from your modeling/acting experiences?

Gabriella Diaz: I have learned a great deal from modeling and acting. I have been able to work with like-minded people who share a similar passion and have received lots of helpful guidance from them. These professional relationships have taught me confidence and independence. This has also taught me to be appreciative of everything around me and thankful for every experience.


Harper’s Bazaar: Looking forward, what would you like to be doing in the next few years? When you grow up?

Gabriella Diaz: Although I am only 14, I have a lot of goals and aspirations. For as long as I can, I plan to be a part of the entertainment industry. In the near future, I hope to model around the world and to become the leading actor in a famous play or have my own television show. When I’m older, I hope to pursue a career as a medical doctor. The goal of my career is to give back to the community through partnerships with non-profit organizations that offer free medical care to those in need, and to represent or create an organization that opens the door for children interested in the arts.

Stephania: I was so nervous the first time I walked on a major runway. This experience has given me so much confidence.


Harper’s Bazaar: What did you learn from this experience?

Nicole: I leaned about designers and collections, it was definitely a big experience for me. I love it..and I’m very happy to be a part of it.

Stephania: I shouldn’t be nervous on the runway and I should be proud myself. I didn’t know what catwalk meant but I will definitely work on it for the next runway (laugh).


Harper’s Bazaar: Do you have any hobbies, play sports, dance, or play musical instruments?

Zina Chou

Model: Zina Chou, @zinalillian2013. Photographer: LILY KOZ @LilyKozStudio. Dress: GIÓ BESPOKE, Instagram: @gio_bespoke_


Harper’s Bazaar: What do you like most about modeling?

Zina Chou: I started out as a child model because I’ve always wanted to be seen. It feels grand knowing you are going to be on a magazine, or a commercial, or even a movie. But most importantly its very fun! My favorite part is that not only do you sit around taking pictures or filming scenes but that you also have a lot of fun in between. I enjoy making new friends, laughing about mistakes, and having snacks.


Harper’s Bazaar: How did you feel the first time you walked the big runway?

Zina Chou: The first time I walked the runway I felt nervous. But I realized it really isn’t that nerve wracking. When you make new friends everything gets better. At the beginning you might feel scared or nervous but at the end you’ll say you had the best time of your life!


Harper’s Bazaar: In addition to modeling, what are a few other things you are passionate about?

Zina Chou: I like modeling but I’m also very much into art and do sports too!

Harper’s Bazaar: What are a few other things you are passionate about?

Jazi K.: I am passionate about singing and playing piano! I dance twice a week. I love reading, and writing my own books, math, science, soccer and swim. I like to travel, try and learn new things too.
