ZAZOE VAN LIESHOUT: "I’M DUTCH AND AM CURRENTLY LIVING AND LOVING NEW YORK. I SEE MYSELF AS A DAYDREAMER FOR A LIVING."
2nd June 2014
Who is Zazoe van Lieshout?
You might know Zazoe as the bird from the Lion King, however I was not named after it, but, accordingly to my parents, after some French song. This story keeps changing though so I’m not sure myself. I’m Dutch and am currently living and loving New York. I see myself as a daydreamer for a living.
What did you do before modeling?
I finished my high school degree in Holland and started traveling at the age of 16.
Your personal passion or hidden talents?
I am passionate about many things! The things that make me most happy are cooking, drawing, reading, dancing and acting. I love to travel, meet new people and hear about their life stories and learn about different cultures. This is one of the reasons I like modeling.
Ten years from now (you will be…)?
I believe that to be able to be happy I should always try to live in the moment. This is the reason why I have a hard time answering this question, as I’m trying not to think that far ahead. Of course I keep an eye on where I’m heading and direct it where necessary, but I don’t know where I will end up. As long as I’m happy, surprise me!
Bisou, because I like the madman song Zou Bisou Bisou so much. My friend made it in to Zazoe Bisou Bisou and it cracks me up every time.
What’s no fun?
When the train just departs before I can get in.
Japan. Unfortunately I’ve only been there once so far, but I can totally see myself living there.
Current 'eye candy'?
Seeing people smile on the street because the summer is here.
My handmade ring with an onyx stone. I’ve got it made when I was living in Istanbul for some time. How dorky it might sounds, it gives me confidence and comfort whenever I wear it.
