CARLA GEBHART: I was scouted by Picky Courtois, the director of Civiles, my mother agency.
I was just 14 years old, studying in second year of high school. He met me at modeling school in Cordoba, my hometown, where I used to do my first practices of modeling. It was in mid 2008.
CARLA GEBHART: The first thing I needed to learn was how to survive healthy, in front of such big stress, that means collections season. I also had to learn to stay away from home, far from my family and friends.

CARLA GEBHART: I feel that the most important thing is to feel that she's just doing a job, that it doesn't become YOU in a really special person just because you're thin and tall. So if you don't act that kind of a role, it could be easier to do it.
CARLA GEBHART: Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't. But anyway, it's a part of the show, so it's not my business to like it or not. Sometimes it helps to walk easily on the runway.
PONY RYDER: Which show had the best music?
CARLA GEBHART: I loved Chanel's show music. I'd also loved Yves Saint Laurent, Gareth Pugh and Prada.
PONY RYDER: What music do you like?
CARLA GEBHART: I love minimal music. I also love jazz, and classics from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. My favorite bands at the moment are Arto Lindsey, Beck & Radiohead.
PONY RYDER: You appeared on every important show this season! Who did you like wearing the most?
CARLA GEBHART: I liked most of the shows I did. Chloé, Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Prada, Jil Sander and Gucci were veeeery nice clothes. Also liked Gareth Pugh and Cerruti.
PONY RYDER: You also walked for Burberry Prorsum! Did you prefer over the knee boots or those ankle ones?
CARLA GEBHART: I loved the knee boots!
CARLA GEBHART: I feel that the shows I did don’t really describe my personal style, but as I mentioned before: I loved Chloé and Gucci.
PONY RYDER: Did you prefer black or white look at Gucci?
CARLA GEBHART: The black one.
PONY RYDER: And what is your personal style?
CARLA GEBHART: My personal style is very natural…
PONY RYDER: Where do you buy for your clothes?
CARLA GEBHART: I buy clothes in vintage stores… I love vintage.
PONY RYDER: Which store are your favorite jeans from?
CARLA GEBHART: Rapsodia (in Argentina), Levi’s, Miss Sixty. I also love Dior Homme jeans.
PONY RYDER: Models always carry big bags with them! Whats the brand of your travel bag?
CARLA GEBHART: I carry a big bag from home, to spend a few weeks in Europe. It's Samsonite, I think they are great, really strong and have nice designs.
PONY RYDER: What bag do you take for castings...and what's in it?
CARLA GEBHART: To the castings, I use Chloé's bag. I take the city map, my mobile phone, my passport, some money, compcards and book... I also have my bikini (just in case I need it for a job), and my high heels from Gucci.
PONY RYDER: You looked amazing at Chloe! Are those earthy beige colors something you would wear yourself? What are your favorite colors?
CARLA GEBHART: Blue is my favorite color. Chloé gave me a lot of clothes and bags… so beautiful…! I could wear every color from that collection, it’s great!.
CARLA GEBHART: I haven’t been to New York yet. I loved Paris, I think I could live there. It’s a beautiful city. I also loved London, but the food is not so good… : (
Milano was OK to my mother, she always travel with me, and she loved the food and the Italian people, because they reminded her of our family.
PONY RYDER: Your home town is Cordoba..? What do you love about it?
CARLA GEBHART: My home town is Cordoba. It is one of the most important cities in Argentina. I love the food and the weather, it`s always good.

PONY RYDER: And do you like chimichurri?
CARLA GEBHART: Chimichurry is the best for the “asado”, our version of barbecue.
PONY RYDER: What Argentinian dish is your favorite?
CARLA GEBHART: My favorite dish is the barbecue, also pasta and salads.
PONY RYDER: And there is this “special” kind of tea or … the way you make it… isn’t there?
CARLA GEBHART: Regarding the “tea”, the name is “mate”, it is an infusion, it’s very famous in our country. But I’m not a really big fan of it.
