Papierdoll: Describe your personal style.
Sarah: Hippie/chic/eclectic

How/when/why did you start modeling?
Sarah: I always wanted to be a model! I sent my pictures into an agency, they liked them and we went from there.

What is your favorite fashion moment and why?
Sarah: When Naomi Cambell fell off of the catwalk in front of hundreds and gracefully got back up, laughed it off and carried on.

What was your most cringeworthy model moment?
Sarah: I had to run up and down a beach with a huge blow up whale…. then i had to tango with the whale and kiss the whale…. so embarrassing!

Wild card….. anything you would like to add.
Sarah: My inspiration is my grandma, she’s 80 and takes such pride in her appearance she always looks amazing! She has had cancer 3 times…. she’s a survivor.
