4 foot 3 inches
Where were you born?
African-American/English (Dual citizenship U.S.A. and the United Kingdom)
Our iPhones, Ariana Grande Cat Headphones, Skywalkers (hoverboards) and being with each other.
What music are you listening to at the moment?
We love all the songs on Ariana Grande’s ‘Dangerous Woman’ album. We went to her concert a couple nights ago in Philly and we had the most amazing seats. We were so close to the stage we could almost touch her!
Favorite movie, TV show
Our favorite ‘White Chicks’. We saw it on vacation with our parents and it’s so funny. Our favorite television show is ‘Liv and Maddie’ on the Disney Channel because it’s a show about twins.
Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
Our favorite beauty product is Kyshadow by Kylie Jenner. Our favorite clothing designer is Tucker + Tate because the clothes are casual and cool.
If you weren’t modeling, we would…?
When we aren’t modeling, we’re acting. We’re always auditioning for roles in movies and new shows or commercials. We hope to have our own television show one day. When we aren’t modeling or acting we love social media and spending time on our Instagram page @anaismirabelle posting cool pics and responding to posts.
Something that might be uncool that you love?
Some people may think that school is uncool but we really love going to school. Our favorite subjects are Math and French. Our dream is to study drama at Oxford University.
Favorite modeling experience so far?
Our favorite modeling experience is walking in New York Fashion Week in the Rookie USA show for Nike, Converse and Levi’s. We have walked in the show for the past 2 ½ years. It’s so much fun. We get to choreograph new moves and dance down the runway. This year, we closed the show for Nike with a Beyonce-inspired dance.
The best thing about your hometown/country?
We are from Philadelphia and we love our city. There are a lot of fun things to do in Philadelphia but it’s low key and so close to New York City.
Which brand(s) would you love to model?
We’d love to model for Maddie Ziegler’s new line ‘Maddie’ or ‘Zella Girls’. We love these two lines because the clothes are comfortable and we can move and dance in them. We wear pieces from these lines to a lot of our auditions.
Place(s) you would love to visit?
We travel a lot and have been to Europe a few times and throughout the Caribbean. We are traveling to South America this year for our winter vacation. But the one ultimate place we would love to go is Bora Bora in the Polynesian Islands. It is so beautiful there. We could see ourselves filming musicals in an overwater bungalow! ■
