We managed to grab the gorgeous Pat
Boguslawski for a quick chat in between he’s packed out schedule of shoots and
castings, here’s what he had to say…
How were you scouted?
A photographer saw me in the street
and wanted to shoot me and then it all kind of took off from there really
quickly, my first show in London was Alexander McQueen and then I went on to
shoot the McQ lookbook styled by Joe McKenna. It’s been pretty inspiring.
Do you have a dream person who you’d
love to work with?
Well… photography wise it would be
Tim Walker, Glen Luchford and Jurgen Teller just because I think their
photography is so artistic, I’d love to experience being in one of their
Why did you want to model?
I think I became interested in
modelling through my passion for acting. I studied drama and acting in Poland
and I find that with modelling it’s so similar, you can play so many different
characters in front of the camera, it’s like playing a part.I always want the
pictures to look great and for them to tell a story.
What’s been the best thing you’ve
done so far?
Definitely shooting the McQueen
lookbook and of course walking the show. It was such a great experience to work
with the whole Alexander McQueen team. When you work with a great team it makes
the job so much better, I found Joe McKenna so interesting, we spoke for ages
about Roman Polanski and his films, he was fascinating!
Which actor/director would you most
love to work with?
Tilda Swinton! ‘I Am Love’ directed
by Luca Guadagnino is one of my favourite movies. I’d also love to work with
director Pedro Almodovar, I like to make people laugh, I think I’m a comedic
person and his films have an amazing sense of humour.
Do you have any advice for models
Don’t ever think you’re too cool!
Always have fun and be nice to people! You need to be yourself!
Do you have any hobbies?
I used to be a dancer for seven
years so that used to be a hobby for quite a long time! I studied at Debbie
Reynolds in LA.
Why did you stop?
I became a professional dancer and
was quite successful, I made good money but it became too serious for me, the
dancing community is such a small one and all I did was dance, I wanted more. I
want to grow as a person, I love travelling and meeting new people so I decided
to make a change.
What’s your favourite type of music?
I can’t answer that, there’s so
much! To me music is so important, I can’t leave my house without my Ipod, it’s
like therapy. I love Air, Chet Baker and Depeche Mode.
