Carolina Thaler Reveals the Perils & Pitfalls of being a top model

Carolina Thaler was still removing glue from her face two days after Chanel stuck gems to her eyebrows for a show.

The Brazilian model described the procedure which she endured for a catwalk presentation earlier this year. The rising star said the beauty trend is one she will avoid trying out again.

“The bejewelled Chanel eyebrows from Fall/Winter 12 – they were really hard to take off after,” Carolina told NY Mag. “I mean, it wasn’t that hard, but I think two days later, I still had some glue on my face. “

The 20-year-old is still a relative newcomer to the modeling world, with the Fall/Winter 12 season catapulting her into the industry.

Despite her relatively short career, she has racked up an impressive number of appearances already. Last season Carolina walked 33 runways in Paris, New York and Milan for collections including Just Cavalli, Y-3 and See by Chloé. Although it sounds glamorous, shows can be harder than they look as they are often lengthy and painful affairs.

“At Prada Fall/Winter 12, it took four hours to do the whole thing, like two hours in hair and two hours in make-up,” she explained. “The hair, they had really, really straight and it had to be perfect and you couldn’t really move, and the make-up was really intense. Even the eyebrows – they were bleached, and after, colored orange.”
