Constance’s own personal photograph of herself.
I’m very excited to announce today that my first Q&A of 2014 is with top model Constance Jablonski !!
The one and only model I’ve dyed my eyebrows with and for!! ( Constance didn’t want to bleach her eyebrows for a shoot as she had done it so may times she was fed-up of doing it- and rightly so!! So to help the situation I agreed to bleach mine too as I’d never done it before). We had a lot of fun doing it and you can see the shots of myself and Constance below.
Meanwhile this fun loving, lovely young lady’s rise to fame has been stratospheric.
Born in Lille, france in 1991, Constance had plans to be a tennis player, playing competitively for 9 years but In 2006, she entered the French Elite Model Look Contest. The rest is mere history as they say.
In 2008 she made her catwalk debut and has gone on to appear in every Vogue magazine plus as well as all the campaigns she works on. In 2010 she became one of the new faces of Estee Lauder along with Asian model Liu Wen and American model Joan Smalls.
So without further ado, here are Constance’s answers to my Q&A:
WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE GROWING UP?
Growing up i first wanted to be an actress when i was 7… then i wanted to be a pro tennis player when i was 11..and then a plastic surgeon when i turned 15! yea… i went through a lot of crisis!
HOW DID YOU END UP DOING WHAT YOU’RE DOING NOW?
I have a brother who i am really close to and we would always do everything together, every crazy idea/project… He has always been into fashion since a very young age and he decided to try modelling. So He sent pictures of us to a small local model agency in the north of France The agency called back interested to see us both! He begged me to come with him to the meeting! i was first very upset he hadn’t consulted me, but i decided to help and support him and meet with those people… and now i am just very thankful :P !
IS THERE ANYBODY YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE IF YOU WEREN’T YOU?
Yes, I would be the heart of my grandmother, the voice of Alicia Keys (I wish I would be able to sing!) and the brain and power of Sheryl Sandberg !!
WHERE DO YOU LIVE?
YOU ARE FRENCH BUT WHERE DOES THE NAME JABLONSKI COME FROM?
It is from Poland on my father’s side, my grand parents are Polish, I wish I could speak the language but unfortunately I have never learned.

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ONE THING IN YOUR CITY WHAT WOULD IT BE?
i wouldn’t change anything in the place where I grew up until I was 18. A very small village, no pollution no traffic, only fresh air and nature. Well yes, when you grow up in the country side you are definitely much more naive and softer than city kids but I think there is nothing bad about growing up in a fairytale 🙂
YOU ARE A HUGE SUCCESSFUL MODEL, WHAT DO YOU THINK IS NEXT FOR YOU?
Future will tell me 😉 … Hopefully even more amazing things more discoveries and a lot of happiness
