Celebrity interview: Eva Herzigova is NET-A-PORTER.COM's latest cover star

This week's edition of NET-A-PORTER's digital magazine under Editor-in-Chief Lucy Yeomans features fashion icon Eva Herzigova in after-dark glamour looks by Balmain, Jason Wu, Maison Martin Margiela, Capitol Couture by Trish Summerville, Rag & Bone, Chloé and more. 

In an exclusive interview, the supermodel discusses the longevity of her career which has spanned more than 24 years."I've always worked hard and picked the right work." She continues, "In this society, where people sell their souls on Facebook and Twitter, I don't go out there selling myself - I am very private." 

When asked about her most recent work - Marc Jacob's final show for Louis Vuitton - she gushed about the show where she sat center of the runway on a revolving black carousel, dressed as a somber yet fabulous showgirl. "I saw Katie [Grand, editor and Marc Jacobs' stylist and friend] on the Eurostar recently, and I told her I was still dazed from the beauty of the show," Herzigova says. "She told me, ‘Of course you had to be there - it was for the Louis Vuitton girls.' I have done four campaigns for them, so it was really touching." 

She reflects on her career turning point when she was featured in a Mario Testino and Carine Roitfeld editorial for The Face  saying, "For me, that shoot was a slap in the face to those who put me in the pin-up box. That was my jump from commercial to editorial." She continues, "I could hear people gasp as they realized it was me." 

More than 15 years ago, the fashion world almost lost Herzigova to Hollywood, she explains, "After doing a few films, I went to LA looking for an agent - and it was just pathetic," she remembers. "I met people who said, ‘Yes, we can talk about the movie over dinner.' I was like, ‘What dinner? I can just read the script here.'" After a very short time she gave up because, understandably, she didn't want to go through what sounds like the sleazy side of Hollywood. 

In regards to her personal life, now a mother of three, Herzigova never thought children were for her. "I never saw myself as a mum. There are girls who grow up thinking of marriage and babies, but I never wanted that. But now it is everything to me. When I had the first [baby], I wondered why I waited so long, but it was timing - I never had the right man before."
