Carina Kresic is the 24yr old face of the Dolorous FW17 Campaign. We had a great time getting to know her on set and thought you might like to learn a bit about her too!
Tell us a bit about yourself: Hi! My name is Carina & I'm 24 years old. I'm born and raised in Toronto, and graduated from radio and television arts program at Ryerson in 2016. In my spare time I love to bake, go for walks with my dog & indulge in some reality TV.
How did you get into modelling?: In my last year at Ryerson, I was scouted at Mass Exodus - a student run fashion show that takes place at Ryerson. I was a bit hesitant to enter the modelling at first but now that I'm in, I don't regret one second of it! It came at a perfect time in my life. I'm very thankful I was able to finish my university degree and enjoy that experience fully. And now that I'm older, I have a better head on my shoulders and ready to experience the adventure of the modelling industry.
Describe your personal style in 5 words: I have a hard time really describing my style, but it's pretty relaxed and I love wearing anything super comfortable while still making it cool. If you combined Topshop and Urban Outfitters, that would pretty much be my exact look!
What is your favourite thing about your job: I love that each day is totally different. I know I'm definitely not the type of person to have a regular 9-5 job, and being a model your day to day is far from it! It's also tons of fun being able to meet amazing people, and to try out new clothing, hair and makeup styles!
What was your favourite piece of jewelry from your Dolorous shoot and why?I absolutely loved the Sona large hoop earrings! I also loved wearing all the different types of necklaces.
What’s your favourite snack food: Blueberries, popcorn, chips, banana ice cream (everyone needs to try it. It's SO good!)
What’s your favourite movie: I'm not the biggest movie watcher.. but I did absolutely love the latest Wonder Woman. But as for TV shows, my all time favourite is Grey's Anatomy. It never gets old... even after 14 seasons!
Describe your ideal Weekend: My ideal weekend would probably consist of sleeping in a bit, going for a run with my dog and then hanging out with friends and my boyfriend! I also love to bake & always looking to try something different in the kitchen.
What items are always in your purse? I make sure to always keep some lip balm, concealer and mints!
If you were an emoji which one would you be? Most definitely one of the monkey emojis!
If we asked 10yr old you what you would be when you grew up what would you have told us?Growing up, my ultimate dream was to become part of Sailor Moon's crew. But once I realized that was not a possibility, I changed my mind and had my mind set on becoming a veterinarian. That career clearly didn't come true. My 10 year old self would never believe you if you told her I was a model now!
