Fibre2Fashion: How would you define yourself and your journey in glam world?

Throughout my life, my style has remained very consistent: minimal, elegant with a touch of sexy irreverence.

Fibre2Fashion: Since you served as a host for MTV and as a model for renowned luxury brands, what attracted you to pursue acting?

My career has actually been built on acting. Modelling and hosting came through that, which I love because it allows me to explore different talents.

Fibre2Fashion: How would you describe the emotion of your new role as brand ambassador of Pam & Gela?

Maria Camila Giraldo:

OMG! It’s been a dream come true. I’ve been coming to Los Angeles for the last five years and I’d always see the cool women wearing Pam & Gela looking so empowered and having all the eyes on them. Now to be the face of it, it’s pretty amazing, I’ve manifested it!

Fibre2Fashion: What are your favourite aspects of the brand?

Maria Camila Giraldo:

Its combination of chic and cool.

Fibre2Fashion: As a celebrity, how important is it to maintain social media presence and engage with the audience?

Today, it has a lot of benefits because you’re in control of the story you tell about yourself and can have some fans who support you along the ups and downs of the life of an artist!

I know every song in the movie La La Land!

Fibre2Fashion: Can you share some style tips to slay basic day and some essentials that every woman should have in their wardrobe?

I guess it depends on everyone’s style. I really like silky clothes that are comfy and flowy, a pair of cool sweatpants and a matching hoodie. I also love to throw on some cool prints to mix and match with all of the above. Why not!

Fibre2Fashion: What advice would you like to share with young aspirants trying to break into the world of glamour?
