We ascribe beauty to that which is simple; which has no superfluous parts; which exactly answers its end; which stands related to all things; which is the mean of many extremes. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
PIM: Anesca.You are truely Poetry in Motion. . How did the journey begin. Where have your exploits taken you..... Tell Tell? What are some of your major achievements?
I started modelling when I was 14 and at that time it was only to do something extra curricular. I really liked it and started doing pageants. Although I've never won a title, I was always placed among the top three at least. Haha! Anyway, after a while I joined an agency and
Voila!Some of my biggest achievements include being a finalist in the Face of Paco Rabanne XS competition which is an international fashion brand and the competition was nation wide. Also, I've worked on two local films namely Wild At Heart and Bakgat 2. I'm also a cheerleader for the university I'm studying at. I've done a few fashion shows, but nothing major yet. I'm still waiting for my big break! Haha!
Speaking of which. What’s a typical day in the life of Anesca Swart?
A typical day in my life is actually very boring. I'm currently doing my Honour's degree in Economics, so other than that, there's not much time for anything else! Haha! But I do make time for loved ones of
course. And then there's castings for modelling jobs from time to time.
When I do go out to party, I make it worthwhile though. Haha!
If you could cook PIM any meal and desert to blow us away...What would that be?
I'm really not a good cook at all. My staple food is currently two minute noodles! Haha! But if I were to really put effort into a meal, it would be something traditional (I'm from a very small town, where restaurants is almost non-existing!), so it would be the traditional Sunday type of meal with lamb, vegetables and lots of carbs with a sweet red wine! For dessert, of course Malva pudding with a nice choclate sauce and cocktails later.
If you had to have KIDNAP any sportsman/celeb, who would that be ha ha?
If I could kidnap a sportsman or celebrity, it would be Quentin Chong. He's the South African, and World Champion of Muay-Thai, a type of martial arts. I'd kidnap him (or at least try to), so he can teach me
this art. I can't get enough of this sport! But I still have to gain enough courage to actually try it myself. I love my face too much.Haha!
Your dream shoot…Pick a location, a theme ?
As for my dream shoot, it would be in a bikini on the beaches of Phuket in Thailand. The water is an amazing bright blue colour and it's so serene. I think it'd make an amazing shoot!
Oh and what would you regard as the sexiest part of your body and a guys? :)
The sexiest part of my body is definitely my buttocks. I've received a lot of compliments for them! But I think I'm overall quite nicely in shape and everything is in relation. As for guys, definitely shapely legs and a strong jawbone! Can't go wrong with that!
What are some of the competions or events we can find you in ?What exciting stuff have you done or are planning on doing regarding your modelling?
Modelling has definitely sent me on some weird journeys, like when I was doing a haute couture fashion show, the designer didn't want the models to potentially damage the dresses, so he dressed us himself! And
we were standing there in nothing but a g-string! Definitely felt uncomfortable that day!
What was the most bizarre and funny come on line that a guy has used on You?
A guy once used a really really bad pick-up line on me. He said: " You are the second most beautiful woman in the world." I asked him who the most beautiful was then? He said: " That woman will still have to be born." Now it sounds okay at first I guess. But then you start thinking that it may have been an insult, because then obviously more beautiful women were to come and you would be replaceable? Plus, I didn't know how to react to that. I just said okay and walked off. It's not the kind of line that really makes a girl feel special you know? I like pick-up lines, they're so cute. Like:"Did it hurt when you fell out of heaven?"
and things like that. Cheesy is still awesome! It'll work on me. Haha!
2010...in SA...UR THOUGHTS..How do you think we will handle it, Are you optimistic about SA and the future in retrospect to the economy, change of presidency, latest political issues etc? Let me put it this way. If you were president of this country. What would you change NOW!
I don't really like talking about politics. But 2010 is an amazing honour for our country. I was really surprised with how wonderful the stadiums look! I'm really positive about it. I am concerned about crime
though. That is what's tearing our country apart. Racism will always be an issue, but I just wish that people could realise that we do need each other. If I was president, I would concentrate on the infrastructure of the country and the public hospitals. Potholes will definitely have to be fixed and the state of the hospitals is just a scary thought! I would look into other emerging countries' policies and make some adjustments like lowering tax!
Tell us about one talent that you have that we never able to guess?
I have a talent for the game Need for Speed! I'm really good and I will challenge anyone!
What’s your favourite fashion brand: Sissy Boy and Guess. I love Sissy Boy jeans! They always fit perfectly!
If you had a million rand, What would be your first purchase? I would definitely do the safe thing and
invest. I could always play around with shares, but it's very risky. I would spend some too! Unfortunately a million rand is not enough for me to import a Ford Shelby GT 500 car. So I'll give a portion to the SPCA,
as animals lie very close to my heart and with the rest I'll take my mom on a mad shopping spree!
Favorite Food and Drink: Pizza & I love drinking Coke:I'm really a down to earth, girl-next-door type of person!
Favorite perfume on you As for perfume, anything by Guess makes me smell nice!
One wish you would like to come through? I have lost of wishes! The biggest right now is that I can become a famous SA model! Only you guys can make that happen for me!
A quote that you always live by: The quote that I live by is that there will always be someone worse off
than you, no matter how hard you may have it right now, so be thankful for the things you do have!
If we snuck into your bedroom, what could we find you sleeping in? I sleep in a tank top and hotpants! It's really the most comfortable
What type of music have you been listening too lately: I love house and hip hop music. Something I can dance to. I dance all the time by myself when no one's watching! Even if people is watching, I won't mind!
Last movie you watched? The latest movie I saw was such an inspiration. Avatar. It was a crazy long movie, but very worthwhile! And the graphics was awesome! I really recommend it!
What do you do to feel sexy?I'll dance around in little clothing or just go to a club where I can dance and have a lot of attention! Getting attention from the opposite sex in general is really a compliment. I've even had a lesbian girl trying to make a move on me! It was a really big compliment for me!
Would you say a woman can learn how to be a model, or modeling is something in the genes? You have it or you don't have it at all? Why do you think so?
Modelling can definitely be learnt. Most of the international models you see on Ftv was accidentally discovered somewhere and a lot of them are nothing like you would expect from a model. All models have come where they are today by learning. Talent and looks does play a role, but it's definitely not rocket science!
If you could be anyone famous in the World today, who would you want to be and Why?
it would have to be Hugh Hefner! I mean, look at all the assets the man has! And he's sweet too. He saved the Hollywood sign in LA by donating $900 000! So I think it'll be great if on your old age day you can still get to host amazing parties, have beautiful women all around you and be soooo rich! Haha!
Are you single? Whilst we on the topic, How important is a guy’s dress sense to you? So PIM can spruce up and impress someone like you. What’s your ideal man?
Unfortunately for you guys, I'm not single. I've been in a looong relationship for the past seven years. He's my first love from my school days, so yes, true love does still exist! Dress sense is extremely important! A guy in jeans and a cool t-shirt or collared shirt is really attractive! It doesn't have to be too much trouble. Simplicity with style is always appreciated! My ideal man is tall and shapely with a great sense of humour and style. I'm interested in a manly man. I'm a damsel in distress and need someone to open bottle caps and be a handyman. Also a gentleman who will open the car door for me for example.
If PIM had to take U on a date. What would we have to do to blow your socks off lol?
The ideal date for me would be a picnic somewhere outdoors. We would eat pizza of course and drink cocktails while chatting about everyday issues and our future aspirations. Then we'd go to the amusement park and have a blast on all the rides until our heads hurt! It would be sooo much fun. Something I'd look really forward to
Good luck Anesca A pleasure to have you on PIM. Best of luck with the Modelling and FHM Models 2010. We’ll get the votes coming your way..
Thanks again for the oppurtunity! All of the best to you and your users!
