What’s more is that he’s very down-to-earth and I have a feeling that we will be seeing a lot of him this year. You can check out the full interview below!
01 – Cesar, can you tell us how you were discovered?
I was discovered walking in the streets of my home city Gent/Belgium when i just tured 18 years young.
02 – Do you enjoy modeling?
I love modeling. It’s a great way to learn and to know new people, to see the world and if you like fashion, like I do, it’s almost a dream job.
03 – Can you describe your style?
My personal style is a mix of secondhand and high fashion brands.
I love Givenchy/YSL and Dries van Noten. I also like COS, AMERCIAN OUTFITTERS and TOPSHOP for cheaper stuff and basics.
I always wear black skinny jeans and some boots. I think that’s my signature.
04 – Who is your style icon?
I don’t really have any style Icon, I think it’s difficult for a guy to have a male style icon but I do like Tom Ford – his style, also Yves Saint Laurent is very chic i think.
05 – Tell us something that people don’t know about you
-My friends call me Ceesie.

-I’m obsessed with good and healthy food.
-I love to go to the movies by myself.
-I have a weakness for sweets and candy.
-I know every Hip Hop/ rap or R&B song. I just know every lyric. My friends call me the walking jukebox.
And the rest you have to discover! 😉
06 – What is a typical day in your life like?
If I don’t have to work or I don’t have any castings to do…
I start my day with a healthy breakfast (Yoghurt, papaya, pomegranate, kiwi,… mixed with muesli). Then I go to the Gym for about an hour. I answer my mails or work on my blog. Maybe I’ll go to the movies, go to a museum or I read in my book.
Meet up with some friends, go for dinner,…
I think my life is not very different then other people’s lives, except for my job then.
07 – How do you stay in shape? Do you go to the gym a lot?
I do! I think going to the gym is something a model is required to. I try to go to the gym 5 times a week. I also enjoy swimming a lot so i mix the 2.
08 – If you could turn back time would you choose a different job?
Funny, I was thinking that 2 days ago. NO! I would not. I learn everyday and everyday is a new adventure in my life. That’s what I love about being a model, everyday is never the same.
09 – Do you enjoy doing editorials more than modeling?
I enjoy doing editorials more cause you have a result of what you’ve done during the day. For the rest of your life you can show the pictures to your children or grandchildren. I think it’s cooler then just walking down the runway.
10 – Do you have any signature look/pose?
I don’t think I have. I do have dark eyebrows so that gives me a strong look.
11 – What’s currently playing on your iPod at the moment?
– Mya ft Jay-z – Best of Me
– Prince – Controversy
– Tupac – Wonder Why They Call You Bitch
– Nas & Damian Marley – Patience
– Lauren Hill – Doo Wop (that thing)
– Eric Benét Georgy Porgy
– FOX TO FOX – Precious Little Diamond
12 – If you could collaborate with any artists, who would it be?
I would love to do a shoot with Daria Werbowy on a hot sexy beach in Zanzibar pictures taken by Steven Meisel.
I would also like to work with Tom ford in the future.
And I wanna record a song with Madonna, Lauren Hill or Dr Dre.
13 – Do you have any big plans for 2011?
I wanna go to Tel Aviv and Buenos Aires.
And I’m planning on making 2011 an AMAZING and unforgettable year! 😉
