At 15 she won the Swiss Elite Model Look, she ran for star designers like Chanel, Dior and Cucci. Since then, the Aargau model Manuela Frey (24) has made headlines. For example, when she recently made the relationship with FC Sion center forward Guillaume Hoarau (37) official. Since Wednesday she has been hosting the casting show “Switzerland’s next top model” on ProSieben Switzerland, where she explains the world to young girls. She explains hers to us.
My favorite people
My family. Without her I wouldn’t be where I am today. They always supported me and were there for me. When I moved to New York at the age of 16 to live my dream of modeling, it was very difficult for me to be alone at first. Back then, she strengthened and built me up through daily video calls. Due to the time difference, it was sometimes two in the morning for her, which never bothered her. I am very grateful for that.
My friend Guillaume Hoarau
He makes me laugh, is my haven of calm and strengthens my back in everything I do. Knowing that the man I love is fully behind me makes me the happiest woman. Our families, who we cook for on a regular basis, like each other and are happy with us in our harmonious, often singing get-together.
my favorite food
This is definitely Pizza Margherita. I love them. I used to avoid fatty foods. Today I want to have fun and live. When I feel like doing something, I eat it. For that, I do a little more exercise the next day.
My favorite book
“The Secret”. I believe in the universe and I give it many orders that come true every time. When I’m late and need the best parking space, desperately want a job, a certain bag, I order it there, and that’s exactly how it turns out.
My best vacation
I was in Croatia this summer with my best friend Alisa. We met seven years ago in Hong Kong at the Dior show and spent a lot of time together in New York. We didn’t see each other for a year and a half due to Corona, so we had a lot to talk about.
Play soccer. Between 10 and 14 I was the only girl in the junior team at FC Brugg. I love this sport and even today I often play football in my free time.
My favorite tattoo
Faith – in German trust – is written on my wrist. Have confidence is my motto. Sometimes it just takes longer to achieve something, but giving up shouldn’t be an option. I got this tattoo done during Fashion Weeks. The weeks have been exhausting and I was often at the limit. But hard work pays off, thanks in part to trust in what you are doing.
My favorite jewelry
A diamond ring with a sapphire. It is from my grandma Ida, with whom I am very closely connected and who often drink tea. She already received it from her mother – and one day I want to pass it on to my daughter.
