PR: Julia HI! Is Julia „the model“ different person from everyday „Julia“?

PR: How fast did the Prada campaign come? What booked the campaign - beauty or personality?
JULIA ZIMMER: It came pretty fast...discovered November, first shows during Berlin FW in January that is how NY recognized me and then in April my first Job was the Prada Campaign...

It was ridiculous...It was the day when Easter Holidyas started and my agent called me...
He was freaking out and asking me where I would love to travel if I could choose...I answered with NY and then he told me get your stuff together your flying to NY tonight, pick up is in 3hours...

3hours later my agents picked me up at home and me + family thought it was a joke,the funny thing is that I didnt even knew what I was going to do in NY,they weren't allowed to I knew about the Campaign when I saw the set...
