Robin Buss is a B&M Model currently on stay with Look Now in Milan.
So many adventures! This weekend was a roller coaster
of excitement; there was my first day at Ralph Lauren,
the shoot on Saturday, plus an amazing phone call from
one of my dearest friends. And I'm learning to love
this city I'm in. To be honest, I still wake up to
the surprising fact that I am in Milan. This may not
be a huge deal for some, but for me, it's just so
different than what I expected, and being here is such
a juicy opportunity! Each tiny situation seems so
significant. I can't tell you enough what an
incredibly valuable education I am getting from this
I am a part time showroom model for Ralph Lauren. This
suits me well because the work is fair, but not
overly exciting. There was a possibility that I would
work for them 20 days straight (weekends included) and
this scared me a little because I would have no time
to myself, plus I would miss so many important
castings! These are the things a model must consider,
the pros and cons of a time consuming job. I am very
pleased that I still have the opportunity to work the
Ralph Lauren showroom, especially since I can now have
my cake and eat it too! I've already been confirmed
for a job in Florence from a casting I would have
missed had I been unavailable!
I did a shoot last Saturday for Glasses and Fashion,
posing in 11 pairs of Emporio Armani, Dior, Versace,
and other illustrious brands of eye wear. It was my
first shoot in Milan, and fortunately, it was a great
day! The photographer was splendid, and everyone on
set was top notch (not to mention extremely nice).
That evening I came home and was surprised by a phone
call from one of my best friends, Laura! Visiting her
boyfriend and learning Spanish in Barcelona, we made
excited plans to visit each other while we are both in
Europe. Oh, how cool is that?!
This trip continues to yield exhilarating
opportunities and circumstances. Tonight I am going to
the very formal opening at a restaurant (Oh, I'll be
ready for the paparazzi! Teehee!) and then tomorrow I
head to Florence with four other girls from my agency
to represent at Look Now's grand opening of their
Florence agency. The first word that comes to mind is...
Good things do come to those who wait.
