New faces rock, the series. Episode 46: Leonardo Meloni
20 Apr, 2012
Hi everyone, I’m very happy to be part of the World of Models family!
I’m Leonardo Meloni, 20 years old, from Italy and I was born in Bassano del Grappa, a small city near Vicenza.
When I was 7 years old I went to Milan with my family, and now my life is here. I love play (soccer , go to movies, go out with my friends, and also stay home with my family.
I didn’t decide to become a model, but a few months ago I had this opportunity and I have decided to follow this career.
I got signed to Independentmen, a great agency in Milan That´s my mother agency now. I like the modeling world cause you can meet a lot of people of different religions and cultures.
My first shooting was with Stefano Roncato (italian fashion editor) and Michele de Andreis (italian fashion photographer). It was a very exciting experience; I remember I didn’t know what to do, but with their help all became easy.
I don’t have any preparation before posing. I think that is better to be natural, unstudied. Improvising is one of aspect that I love most in this work.
I like working with photographers cause when I get in contact with their ideas I can feel myself as an actor, I can interpret their Ideas.
The catwalks experiences
I have done only one Fashion Week, and I walked for Dolce&Gabbana this season, it was a very great and cool experience. I met 2 fashion world stars: Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
I love fashion, but I love to create my own style, When I’m not working as a model, I use to wear everything, from jeans and jacket to gym clothes, I always love to be comfortable
Imagine u a famous model surrounded by a huge crowd
I don’t know how I´d handle with that cause I´ve never experienced this moment before. When this situation happens I will let you know
Show biz, fame, success and the most important things for his life
I think nowadays is a great opportunity to represent myself , and for this reason I have to say thank you to show business and fashion world.
Fame and success are important if u want to become important in this world; its not very good to say, but its the truth; its the only way we can say to the world who we are and what we are thinking about.
In these last years I understood that in our life the important things are: Love ( I love my family, friends and girlfriend )
Passion ( be happy for what we are doing ) , Luck ( its very important ) , Health (without it, all is nothing) , Strenght (strenght to go on, ever)
Loving x Dating
I’m a romantic guy ,and I love joking with a girl, have fun
Without sports my life would be boring, i need to do sport every week
Atracting someone´s attention
Look into the eyes and start a conversation
Having fun, enjoying life
Playing sports, chilling out with my buddies, staying with my family, and in the end, occasionally, staying with myself, to think what i want and what i have to do to reach the goal.
Craziest thing in a summer time season
Last summer I jumped off a rock 10 meters high
Fav body part and why
To other people´s eyes, I can understand what they think , what they say, what they feel into.
On me, my eyes and hair (I love my hair and I need them haha.)
Fav underwear for daily activities and for those coooool sexy moments (lol!)
Boxer briefs all the way

I love rock and pop, and also soundtracks
A lot of fav singers, Lil Wayne, Rihanna, Sean Paul, David Guetta. I love Katy Perry, she’s more than a singer for me, I hope one day I will meet her.

If u weren´t a model, u´d be..
My dream was to become a soccer player, I love soccer, and I have two fav teams : in Italy AC Milan and in Spain Real Madrid.

An unforgettable moment
When Italy won he Soccer International Cup in 2006, when Cannavaro moved up the cup and all people in italy was screaming,
