CLICHÉ: How were you discovered?
Lauren Bocook: I wasn’t really “discovered,” I just always had people telling me that I should be a model, and I did a few shoots at a young age and loved it! So I contacted agencies and built up more [connections in the industry]!
If you weren’t modeling, what would you be doing?
LB: If I weren’t modeling, I would like to maybe do interior design, wedding planning, or something with helping people becoming more healthy!
What’s your favorite music to listen to during a shoot?
LB: I love to listen to something with a great beat, such as dance [or] techno. It also depends on the theme of the shoot; if it’s a really edgy shoot, something rock to help me get in the mood, and if it’s a lifestyle Smiley shoot I like to listen to something fun and bubbly!
What’s your favorite clothing brand or line?
LB: I’m super picky when it comes to clothes! If I had to pick, I would say Guess or Bebe.
What are your plans for the future in terms of modeling?
LB: I moved to Miami in August 2012, and the work seems to be dying down there, so I plan to move to LA to get more and better work. I would also like to get more into acting in LA.
