Modelizer

André do Val grills Daiane Conterato...

Ever since walking in Prada’s fall '06 show in Milan, Daiane Conterato has worked with Steven Meisel, Steven Klein, Juergen Teller, David Sims, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin for the best rags around—think Italian Vogue, French Vogue and Numero. She's known for her angular face and stick figure, but Daiane insists she's the queen of the barbecue. We guess that makes sense, considering she's from Porto Alegre, Brazil, land of bloody meat and gauchos...

Did you manage to have some days off before fashion season?
Thank goodness for that. It was lovely. I spent a month at home with my family. That was exactly what I needed. And I ate so much. That was before Rio and São Paulo fashion weeks in June, right before I go to New York for the castings and everything starts again.

So you have been eating a lot, huh?
I always do! I love barbecues. My father does it really well. I really stuff myself with meat and potato salad and all that mayo that goes with it.

Is there something you don’t eat?
Don’t ask me to eat tomato salad. I don't mind healthy food, it's just that I hate raw tomatoes.

Have you found any fancy foreigners to go out with in your travels?
I think I still prefer Brazilians. They are tender and careful. And I don’t have very much time to go out with boys anyway.

Who do you go out with then?
Mostly my friends are gay, so I normally go with them to gay clubs to dance. It's better because I can actually have fun and relax, and the boys don't stalk me.
