L'HISTOIRE PAR LAYNA VAN CAUTEREN
"So I'm 20 years old and I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My mother is American en my father is Belgian. When I was 5 years old, we moved to Belgium and I've been living here ever since. I studied Art throughout my highschool years and after graduation I moved to Antwerp. That's when I started Modeling. It was very lucky in the way I started.. I had met a boy at the fashion academy who was actually Bruno Pieters' boyfriend. So this boy had introduced me to Bruno and I got to go to Paris for his Showroom. When in Paris, Bruno asked me the night before his show if I would like to walk in it. Obviously I said yes! During my time in Paris, a friend send me an email telling me I should go to the agency Dominique Models once I get back. And well, I did and here I am 2years later. :)"
LA VIE EST BELLE AVEC LAYNA!!!
I would like to consider myself as a Belgian Model. I do think that the Belgian models have quite a good name in the fashion world.
My best jobs would include working for some of the great Belgian designers like Bruno Pieters, Dries Van Noten, AF Vandevorst and lately I've started working for my favorite designer of all time; Maison Martin Margiela.
My favorite magazine cover was for a small Belgian magazine called The Word. I was transformed into Snow White. I really love the photographer aswell, Alex Salinas. I've worked with him for several things, including a photoshoot for belgian clothing brand The Fabuleux Marcel de Bruxelles. I've been modelling for them the last couple of seasons.
I also did a commercial for JBC with Naomi Campbell. I actually had a scene with her which was pretty surreal!

AVEC UNE TOUCHE DU BLANC.......
My dream Job would be working for Maison Martin Margiela, and I'm so lucky that I allready am. I would also love to act in some obscure french film.
And of course being on the cover of the Vogue would be pretty awesome too! :)
I've been kinda busy with photography here and there. I'm really a big music lover and I'm hoping to start a band with one of my best friends. I'm a big Moviefreak aswell. Preferably anything cult or Horror. My dream after modelling would be to open a 50s diner; with jukebox, curly fries & all! :)
