Damaged / Goods :What led you to originally pursue a career in modeling ?
Rebecca L'Amore: I have always considered myself an artist and a visual person, and loved dressing up and styling myself as a kid. I was never very good at painting or drawing, but excelled at sculpture and styling. Ever since the age of 13, I was often asked if I was a model prior to pursuing modeling professionally. My parents were not into the idea of me modeling. I was put on a career path to get a business degree and a normal day job. I never felt like I fit in at an office and got sick of saying 'no' to everyone who asked I was a model, so I moved to Los Angeles to seriously pursue it.
Damaged: Who would you say is your ultimate fashion inspiration ?
Rebecca: Vivienne Westwood, David Bowie, Gwen Stefani, & Debbie Harry.
Damaged: Favorite fashion brands ?
Rebecca: Vivienne Westwood, The End Is Near Clothing, Paranormal Brand.
Damaged: In terms of music, who are your top artists of the moment ?
Rebecca: I actually make my own music. I am a singer/songwriter and DJ and create internet music called 'cyberpop' with electronic music producer Stelio Marshall. My stage name is Princess Cyberspace.
Whats your damage ?
Rebecca: I have traveled a lot and have lived in Guam, Rhode Island, Boston, and Los Angeles. I have never felt like I belong in one place. I am also multi-racial (Filipino, German, Polish, Austrian, Irish) and can pass as any ethnicity. I do not understand today's racism because I have traveled so much and am so mixed. I feel very alone and alienated in today's digital world, which is why I created the Princess Cyberspace project. I hope to bring something real and memorable to both the fashion and music industries with my art.
