Leading Lady: Eva Marcille Covers ‘Kontrol Magazine’

The effortlessly gorgeous Eva Marcille, who catwalked her way into our hearts in the 3rd cycle of America’s Next Top Model, graces the Fall/Winter issue of Kontrol Magazine. In the spread Eva rocks menswear, one of this season’s most sought out trends, in ensembles by BCBG, Jad Ghandour, Baby Phat and of course Christian Louboutin. Tapping her inner glam goddesses she shows the men that she’s just as good as they are. Who says a woman can’t join the boys in the barbershop?

Take a look at an excerpt from the interview she had with the mag below:

On advice she has for any individual looking to go on ANTM and any other reality television show

“I think before you walk into it. know what you’re getting yourself into. So many people just see the glitz and the glamour. and don’t really realize the work that is put into this. and with anything you do. you have to be bigger and better the next time.”

On the advantage of being the only ANTM winner to have Tyra Banks as a manager

“Well, I was lucky Tyra was my manager. I was the only girl who she managed from the show, and she taught me that even though this might be fun and I might like it, that it’s my bread and butter and that this is a business. She’s a businesswoman and she was the best teacher. Because of her, I’ve been able to stay beyond afloat in this business and make money for myself doing what I love to do.”

On fashion and her favorite designer

“I love the story of Coco Chanel. She’s done so much for fashion. She’s an outside of the box type of woman and has been since the early 1900s which was unheard of. She was an extreme innovator and I love her. I love Tom Ford. He came from doing stuff for Pelle Pelle and Nautica to his stuff now. I love his journey and I love the way he tailors for women. As far as leather goods. Louis Vutton and Gucci. They just don’t wear. I’ve had bags from college that look just as good as the ones I got last year.”
