Czech model Eva Herzigova has opened up on her extensive career as a model, commenting that she never had a model mentor to look to for advice as she worked her way up to the top. While many younger models may be close with older models who know the ins-and-outs of the industry and offer them guidance along the way, Eva says it wasn't an experience she had as she navigated the fashion world single-handedly.

She admits now that she would have loved to have had a mentor but never found one: "At the time I longed to meet a mentor, but I never found one. I built my career entirely by myself, ensuring I always did my best at everything I set my mind to. I learnt to know myself as a person and conquered my fears."

Speaking on her most memorable fashion shoot ever, Eva recalls the very famous 'The Butcher' shoot which was captured by photographer Mario Testino. She says the experience really stood out for her: "I've got very strong memories of photoshoots. Namely the Carine Roitfeld one shot by Mario Testino, 'The Butcher'. I had my hair dyed dark, a knife and blood. Everything was the opposite of the sensual blonde image I had at the time. I loved it."

On being a role model for other women, Eva says it's a role she proudly takes on but it comes with responsibility too: "I'm feel proud but its also a big responsibility to become a role model for women."
