Best-selling author: Riccardo’s book is available

Since early childhood Riccardos was very keen to bring his own book on the market. “My right to sparkle” is the title of Riccardo Simonetti’s biography, which is finally available since September 2018. For more than a year, the blogger has been working full of energy together with the publishing house Community Editions on his biography, because he wanted to make his first book a very special one.  Influencer Riccardo shares with his readers all the details of his story from an outsider to a successful social media star.

The numbers of pre-orders speak for themselves. Many of his fans have already pre-ordered his book, which made sure that the blogger could already call himself a “bestselling author” before the start of sales.

Interview: Love, alcohol and drugs

Most interviewers ask the same questions over and over again and stars always answer the same questions with the same answers. To bring a breath of fresh air into his interviews, Riccardo takes the matter into his own hands and asks himself questions that nobody dares to ask out loud.

Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook

As one of the most successful influencers in Germany, Bayer-born Riccardo Simonetti is of course represented on the most popular social media platforms to give his fans new insights into his life day after day. Of course, this lifestyle doesn’t leave much privacy, but the 25 year old has no problem with that, after all, that’s exactly his job and this job is his biggest dream.


The free instant messaging service gains new users every day. They love the new kind of communication because all sent photos or messages are only visible to the recipient for a few seconds, depending on the setting, but only for a maximum of 24 hours.

Snapchat has become for Riccardo like the air to breathe. There he is known under the name “Fabulousricci”. The Infuencer takes his fans everywhere almost every minute. No matter if it is a hairdresser appointment, a meeting with his friends or a Red Carpet performance. Ricardo films and posts what the stuff holds. So every hour he gets sometimes hundreds of reactions from his fans.

The microblogging service enables Riccardo Simonetti to disseminate telegram-like short messages worldwide. The blogger reaches over 2,800 thousand followers daily via Twitter. He posts amusing contributions, congratulations or simply lets his fans know his personal opinion. Because the 25 year old loves to discuss socially critical topics in public and this is particularly well received because Ricardo speaks with his special personality for the most different characters.


The perfect blend of microblog and audio-visual online platform makes Instagram so popular. The posting of photos and videos, which can even be distributed on other platforms, finds new growth every day and Riccardo thus new fans. Riccardo also posts daily updated photos of himself on Instagram and fills his Instagram Story hourly, similar to Snapchat, with posts. In addition, he communicates openly with his 159 thousand subscribers and his fans have the feeling to be even closer to the Social Media Star.

styled, sweaty or no make-up

The influencer does not disguise itself and has been himself since day one. He doesn’t need good film roles because the best role he ever got was his personality. Riccardo enjoys and loves his life, which his fans may accompany permanently. So he shows himself top styled on the red carpet or sweaty after the sport in front of the camera. This unvarnished truth and Ricci’s diversity inspire.


14.725 thousand Facebook users like the crazy bird of paradise Riccardo Simonetti, because he doesn’t neglect his Facebook page either. Every day, Ricci’s Facebook fans receive updates from his everyday life. From funny videos to serious statements about current topics that are discussed worldwide.

Beauty tips and tricks on the subject of models are presented with Hair Stylist & MUA Maria!

Nowadays, many girls and boys want to become a professional dream model. But this is not easy! We have for you a number of little tricks or important tips from make-up artist Maria (Marie Instagram). Here you can learn what is helpful for models, whether at the beginning, already professional or what you can pay attention to, should you want to become the dream model, come closer.

Beauty Tips for expectant models!

Maria is a professional make-up artist from Cologne and Senior Artist of the Pro Academy (Cologne / Düsseldorf), who has been working in the fashion industry for almost 20 years. She herself always had an artistic streak and started her job as a hairstylist and make-up artist (MUA) with a make-up artist education.  Stylist and Make-Up Artist have the first contact with the models at the shooting, because they prepare them. The models get the first reception at the make-up and are therefore also a big aspect if the model feels comfortable during the shooting. She told us something about her area, gave us tips and explains which points are important for a model, so that a shooting can be successful.

General for women and men Models

For New Faces it can be quite exciting when you go to the first shooting. So that you know how much you have to pay attention to, what you shouldn’t do and what points Male and Female Models all have to pay attention to, Maria has given us some General Things for you to consider. As a New Face it is important to always have good communication. It starts with the model informing herself well at his agency. What will the model expect at the shooting? What should it bring with it or how should it appear? The make-up point is also incredibly important. If a model has allergies or very sensitive skin, this should be communicated so that the styling can adjust to it. When the model comes to the shooting, it is professional to introduce yourself, ask who the people are and what they are responsible for, to greet the whole team and create a good pleasant atmosphere for a successful shooting. Apart from general hygiene and care that a model should always maintain, Maria has again listed important points for explicitly men and women who make it easier and possible for styling to do good work.

Here are the important points:

  • No Go: Come to the set with make-up
  • Availing tattoos / piercings or etc. like extensions communicate
  • Polas should be current
  • No drastic look changes without agreement
  • All avoidance that additional time costs (make-up removal, wet hair etc.)
  • Always slept in / come to the set relaxed
  • Fresh hair (wash the evening before)
  • face peeling (evening before)
  • Coloured models must bring their own products, depending on skin tone

Tips for women

Apart from the fact that models should always come to the set without make-up, female models must also make sure that their nails are not lacquered or gel nails. Lacquering nails off, or blow-drying wet hair dry, always costs make-up and hairstylists time that should be used for the shoot. Nails and general appearance should be maintained, however, the model should never come painted to the set, unless it is expressly required otherwise. The model should be well shaved, girls with greasy hair must make sure that they appear with fresh hair to the set and generally inform their own agency always up to date, should there be problems with the look or change.

Tips for Men Models

Men should still pay attention to the care of the shave for their face care. If a model is to be seen in all pictures with beard and has been booked with beard by the customer, it should appear in such a way, or always current pictures should come. A professional model has a fresh haircut (depending on the haircut, the hair should end just above the ears, for example, otherwise they disturb) and a fresh shave. Male models always have to bring their own shavers because of hygiene, since shaving can cause burn and irritated skin if you have to shave directly on the set after. Men models should also make sure that all nails are well groomed and not too long.

points why a shooting can’t take place?

There are requirements that a model must meet in order for everything to work. Here are a few examples that Maria came up with of the fast one, so a shooting didn’t work or a model couldn’t be shot.

  • bad skin (pay attention, what can be a trigger: food, make-up etc.)
  • Party before the job (Sleepless: dark circles, skin and model cannot do the job)
  • skin inflammation / rash (avoidance of hands on face due to everyday bacteria)

How to make a shooting successful for Model & Team:

It’s simple! If a model feels comfortable in the industry, is open and friendly, when introducing and getting to know the team, half is already done. Every model who works professionally or wants to work professionally should have a skin analysis done. So you have direct information about problem zones, and which are most optimal for products for your own skin. Every skin is different and if you should use oils, moisturizing or oily creams, you can easily find out. Mary’s Tip: Skin Analysis at Dermalogica! For everything else it is important to maintain good communication between the model and the agency, as well as the photographer and the rest of the team.

    Curvy Supermodel by Angelina Kirsch: Jury, Candidates and Final 2018

    On July 26, 2018 the 3rd season Curvy Supermodel started on RTL 2. For 7 weeks the show runs on TV on Thursdays at 8.15 pm. In the 7 episodes the girls have to master different tasks, develop themselves constantly and in the end convince the jury of their talent – this season will be more exciting than ever, promises RTL 2.

    + AD + Do you know?

    The jury has two new faces and two familiar faces

    This year again, the girls will be supported and promoted by a professional and experienced jury. The four-man jury accompanies all participants on their way and will do everything to get the best out of their protégés. At the end of each episode they decide who was convincing and for whom the dream of the title “Curvy Supermodel 2018” is unfortunately over.

    Curvy Model Angelina Kirsch

    Already for the third time the German Curvy model Angelina Kirsch sits in the jury. It is highly successful in Germany and internationally and represents brands such as Zalando and H&M. She knows exactly how the business works and what is expected of the girls. At the same time Angelina can put herself in the shoes of the young candidates and support them personally.

    Jan Kralichka: The Men Model

    Yan Kralichka will be there for the first time in 2018. He became famous through the TV show ” der Bachelor” in 2013, but even before that he was already in front of the camera, because he is a professional model.  Through his experience he has the best tips for the girls in front of the camera.

    Jana Ina Zarella for Power!

    The second woman on the jury is Jana Ina Zarella. She is a model, TV presenter and designer, a real multi-talent. The participants can judge her through her versatile career from different points of view but also help to try themselves out. She was already with Curvy Supermodels last year and was so enthusiastic about the development of the girls that she definitely wanted to be part of the jury again in 2018.

    Oliver Tienken is coach, choreographer and dancer

    Oliver Tienken completes the jury this year. As a successful coach, choreographer and dancer he will rehearse great performances with the girls. From him they learn how to move as a successful model and present themselves on the catwalk to be successful. Oliver knows how to do it! He ran across the runway ready with Naomi Campbell.

    What must the Curvy supermodel 2018 bring?

    charisma and self-confidence! A very important topic, because a Curvy model must be able to inspire people and get them on their way. She must be able to present herself and her body self-confidently and above all with pride. Discipline and ambition are also part of it. It’s often a tough job and you really have to want it to be on top. It is important to fight for one’s dreams and to keep working on oneself and improving. It is a job where you should always be in top form to satisfy the customers, you have to be able to deal with precipitation and sometimes stamina. One of the most important things about a Curvy model is of course the curves. A beautiful hourglass silhouette and no hunger hook is sought. There is no minimum size and no exactly specified dimensions. You can take part from 16 years upwards there is no limit. 2016 was the oldest participant 32.

    The last episodes decided about the big chance

    More than 5,000 girls applied for the show this year. On the basis of the application photos, the jury made a pre-selection and invited the more than 50 girls selected to the casting in Düsseldorf. The girls were allowed to put together their outfits themselves without any specifications and so some walked down the catwalk in evening wear and others in bikinis. As a surprise, the girls received professional make-up and hairstyling before their performance. Then we went onto the catwalk for each one separately. To go one round further, the girls had to convince at least three jurors. For the girls who did it, it went directly to round 2, where they had to present themselves in a group walk, the difficulty was that it was a photo shoot at the same time. In the end Ines, Victoria, Tessa, Larissa, Tessa and Yolanda made it to the next round.

    In the second casting there was the same principle and the same Prerequisites as a model. Before the Canadians came onto the catwalk, a voice message recorded by them was played on which they introduced themselves and tell what influenced them and thus made them a strong, self-confident woman. They also completed a rehearsed group catwalk in round 2.

    In the next episode the last potential models will be selected! It’s the last casting of this season and then it really starts! In the last casting, touching stories of models who talk about the negative experiences with their bodies await us once again.

    Here you can find more videos about the Curvys:

    These candidates have already made it to the next round

    • Viktoria (24) – business administration student from Bremen
    • Tessa (22) – graduate financial economist in training, Koblenz (dimensions: 107-90-117)

    The last winners of Curvy Supermodels

    The first season 2016 was won by 23-year-old Celine Denefleh. She was present throughout the season and delivered. All in all, she had the greatest development of the participants and gave the jury goose bumps. The 23-year-old was delighted with a great model contract with Ted Linows Model Agency and became the face of a winter campaign for a well-known plus-size fashion label.

    In 2017 Hanna Wilperath surprisingly won the title. She wasn’t one of the favourites but that only strengthened her fighting spirit. The 24-year-old convinces with her naturalness and her motto “The curve with the most sex appeal is your smile”.

    This year the winner is expecting a cover and a model contract

    This year the winners of the show will be on the cover of the German fashion magazine “Joy”. In addition, she is awarded a model contract by Peyman Amin’s renowned agency Pars Management.

    Growing up, living as street kid

    Fiv: Hi Zombie Boy, could you tell us who invented your name?

    Growing up, living as street kid, my comrades aliased me as ‘Zombie’. This was due to my couple of tattoos & macabre t-shirts/apparel I’d be fashioning, as well as the music and movies I’d be into. I had also previously survived a brain tumor operation; hence, the shoe fit like chocolate & peanut butter. Down the line, it was Bizarre Magazine that dubbed me as the Zombie Boy.

    Fiv: When asked what your profession is, what do you answer?

    In a nutshell, my profession is Zombie Boy.
    I started entertainment performance in freak-show as “the boy who ate worms” . I have since worked as a model and have done some acting. I am currently striving to make my way into music as the front man (lyricist/vocalist) of our currently under-construction band ‘Zombie Boy’.

    Fiv: How did your present day career begin? What were you doing before that?

    As a teen, I was a squeegee-kid and doing odd jobs before getting into freak-show performing. Some people would want pictures, and so it was a modeling gig that interested Nicola Formichetti to scoop me up. It was shooting with Mugler and hand-in-glove shooting of Lady Gaga’s ‘Born this Way’ that trumped everything else I had previously done.

    Fiv: What do you particularly like about your job?

    Sometime a photographer will use a snap that shows the obscure Zombie Boy character that I manifested for myself. Also, once in a blue moon, I get a gothic/horror gig alongside other misfit strangers in the strangest places.

    My favourite tattoo is the one on my skin

    Fiv: It looks like there is no free space on your body for any other more tattoos but is there a part of your body that is not yet tattooed?

    Yeah there’s a little space left, but that’s after-dark real-estate territory.

    Fiv: What would you say is your favorite tattoo?

    My favourite tattoo is the one on my skin.

    + AD + Do you know?

    Fiv: When and why did you start getting inked? Would you tell us something about your first tattoo and the story behind it?

    I was 16 when I got my “Skull & crossbones” tattoo on my left shoulder. It represents “no rules & no master”.

    human flesh, and brains are a cultural delicacy

    Fiv: How do you picture your life in 20 years from now?

    Logical reasoning leads me to believe that I will by then in-turn be the worm food.

    Fiv: Our special question: what does a zombie eat? What is your favorite food?

    Zombies generally vice on human flesh, and brains are a cultural delicacy. Though if you ask me, worms are great for snacking and candy-corn everyday keeps the doctor away.

    Fiv: You lived on the streets of Montreal for a while. What would you say was the hardest part of this?

    Trying to squat the harsh and unforgiving winter, with a dash of Police.

    Fiv: You have traveled a lot over the last few years. Many other people leave their hometown when they work in your business. What is so special about Montreal for you that you want to stay?

    This is my home. The people and grew-up with and love are here. I know where my resources are, and familiarity is my comfort zone.

    Thank you Zombie Boy for the great Interview.

    The biggest German supermodels of all times!

    Most of the really big top models in the world come from Brazil, America or Australia. However, there are one or the other supermodels in the world who come from Germany. The first name that comes to mind is of course Heidi Klum, but there are many more who have also made a name for themselves in the scene. We have put together a list with the best and biggest top models from Germany for you!

    Caro Daur

    The German model and influencer is one of the new generation models who are also booked on social media because of their reach. She is very successful and designs, among others, for brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel and Calzedonia.

    Stefanie Giesinger

    At the age of 17, the 1.77-meter former high school student took part in the ninth season of the casting show Germany’s Next Top Model, which aired on ProSieben from February 2014. On May 8, 2014, she won the final. In June 2014 she was on the cover of German Cosmopolitan. Like other participants of the season, she received from Günther Klums model agency ONEeins a two-year contract, which she did not renew. Since then, she is very active on social media and as a model, and is often booked as an influencer.

    Anna Ewers

    In 2013 she came into business and ran at 42 fashion shows in Paris and New York. A call from designer Alexander Wang promoted her career. The German-language edition March 2015 of fashion magazine Vogue brought with her for the first time ever five different cover pictures of the same model by star photographers like Patrick Demarchelier or Peter Lindbergh. She lives in Brooklyn, New York and is, according to Stern, “currently the internationally most booked German model”.

    Toni Garrn

    As a model she was discovered in Hamburg at a Fanfest for the Football World Cup 2006. The international breakthrough came in the following year, when she was booked exclusively for Calvin Klein. After graduating from high school Ohlstedt in Hamburg, she also moved to New York City to work as a model professional. She also starred in campaigns for Burberry, Chloé, Dior, Emporio Armani, Fendi, Hugo Boss, Jil Sander, Prada and Versace.

    Setup for Model Newbies – Agencies, Test Shootings and Co.

    Become a model. Many young women dream of floating like Victoria’s Secret Angel on a glittering catwalk, or how to model GiGi Hadid for big brands like Tommy Hilfiger and Co. But not everyone has what it takes and in the real world of modeling, there is far more to it than the things that show us formats, such as GNTM. In order to bring a little clarity into the conditions and the true model life, I summarized here the most important facts.

    Fact # 1 Requirements for Models

    Of course, the cliché is already a bit that all models must be thin, because except for the Curvy Models, you should be in shape as a model. But what is important, the so-called hunger models no longer wants to have an agency these days. It is much more about living healthy, sporty and balanced. Of course you need certain dimensions as a model. 90-60-90 is not so outdated in the modelbussiness. For the German market models can also be ‘curvy’ means a 94 he hips or a 65 waist are here in sufficient. The reason why these measurements exist is simply the fact that designers usually tailor their shoots or catwalks to a certain size, which the models must then fit into. The problem with the dimensions is usually that many of the bones and physique are not designed to reach these dimensions. Therefore, one should not be too strict with the dimensions, because even the size is sometimes made by a beautiful face in the shade. Of course, the size is very important, but there are also many professional models that are actually too small, but have such an expressive face that they still work well. In summary, it means that it comes down to the mixture when modeling. The measurements should be correct in a certain range, the size should not be less than 1.71m in women and the face must convince. It is also important – Model does not mean pretty. There are many models with an androgynous or special face, which we would not classify as beautiful at first glance, but still work great as a model!

    Fact # 2 Modeling agencies and how do they actually earn their money?

    Model agencies are the nuts and bolts of aspiring models. They help a photographer find his first test shootings, teach jobs and organize everything around modeling. But which agencies are good and professional and which ones should you avoid? There are some key facts to make a good agency. For example, a professional agency will never take money from you. Even if this is made so firm in the contract, this is not right. A good modeling agency also does not tell you that you have to go hungry or force yourself into things you do not want, such as a haircut, self-tanner or anything else. A good agency does not let you sign a contract that specifies a minimum term, or states that you are not allowed in any other agencies. As a professional model it is normal to be represented by several agencies from different countries. So-called ‘exclusivity contracts’ are not legal, because you are independent and can be represented in as many agencies as you want. Important, if you apply, you do not need a big portfolio of you. Simple polaroids are enough. You can just make these in front of a simple wall at home. But how do agencies actually earn their money? It’s easy, because modeling agencies give you jobs and get 20% agency commission from your customers, as a commission. If you earn 400.00 Eur netto on a job, your agency will get 80.00 Eur from the customer. Important, you will not be deducted from the fee, but the customer pays the commission, not you!

    Fact # 3 Build Book as New Face

    As NewFace, it is important to build a large, comprehensive book. Most of the test shoots are done with photographers. In the so-called TfP shootings, all involved (photographer, visa, model) use the images for their book, but no one has to pay the other. Here it is important that the quality of the pictures is correct. So just look for good photographers or discuss the shootings with your agency. Best suited for your book shoots with a natural setting, not too much make-up, not too fancy clothes or accessories, it should go around you and show you from a good side. Depending on how professional the photographers are, it may also be that they want to have money from you for a test. This is worthwhile only for the best, but then it is a good investment in yourself. Watch out, you have to organize with photographers who want to make lewd photos of you, or the shoot without your agency. If it’s a professional photographer, he has no problem communicating with your agency in advance. Since you’re on a shoot and the photographer is expecting something you do not want, say no, because you do not have to go along with everything and beautiful pictures will only be created if you feel comfortable in your own skin anyway.
