Model Latina South Beach: Victoria’s Secret Angel, Ines Rivero talks about her experience


Victoria’s Secret Angel, Ines Rivero has been in the spotlight on runways since she was 14, winning the ‘Elite Look of the Year’ contest in Argentina at age 17. This Córdoba-born supermodel has been featured on the cover of some of the best magazines, including Elle and Vogue.

Every week at “Model Latina South Beach,” the reality series from NUVO TV, Rivero has been displaying her acting skills as a judge as well as stealing the hearts of the viewers.

Lissette Rondon got an exclusive interview with the stunning Argentinian, where she spoke about the “Model Latina South Beach” series, her career as a model, fashion in Miami, and more. Check it out:

LR- How was your experience in “Model Latina South Beach?”
‘Model Latina South Beach” was the first time I worked on a TV show and it was an amazing experience. From the beginning, to growing into the show and the chemistry we had among all, and the work of Franco Lacosta made everything a unique experience. It was also within the expertise I have. Having the privilege of teaching the girls what I know, it was like validating what I have achieved by sharing with them,” said Ines.
LR-How was your experience acting with the handsome actor, Carlos Ponce?
“Working with Carlos Ponce was fun, it was the first time I met him in person, he is very professional and he is always in a good mood and very optimistic. Working with someone like him makes everything easier,” added Ines. “The hardest thing was to announce the model that had to leave the show. It was hard!

LR-Which of the models could be the next ‘Model Latina South Beach?’

 “I try to be practical when I vote. I am looking into a model that represents our Latin culture and also has what it takes to compete worldwide. The winner of this contest must be able to compete against hundreds of women from around the world,” added Ines. “It’s hard to choose just one because they were all beautiful and talented.”

LRHow did you feel filming in our Magic city?

“I love Miami; I have been living here for a couple of years. I moved from New York. I used to live in Tokyo, Paris, Buenos Aires, and I think Miami is amazing. On weekends when I have free time I go to the beach and it does not compare. This is America where we can maintain our culture. Where else can you find a place like this?” added Ines.

LR-What do you think about fashion in Miami?“Compared to cities that I have worked in such as New York, Milan, and Paris, Miami still has much to grow. In art and music Miami is growing so fast and, if God, wants it will be growing too in the world of fashion,” said Ines.

LR-What are your next projects?
“I have several projects on the table but none confirmed. I would love to be part of the “Model Latina Six.” I’m working on something that is going to be here in Miami, to promote fashion, added Ines.” My hobby is architecture and interior design. I have a project under my arm right now, I’m fixing up two buildings and decorating a house.”

LR-Can you define your work and yourself with just 3 words?

 “Personality, professionalism, spontaneity.

 “The most important thing for any woman is to follow her heart and be herself. Beauty is important but there are other things that prevail.”
