IN CONVERSATION: MILO SPIJKERS
Name|Milo Spijkers

Age|20

Hometown|Antwerp, Belgium


How did you get discovered?

I was at a party in Antwerp when a scout from New Models (no longer in business) approached me, I never thought I was model material!


What were you doing prior to modeling?

I was in high school


People would be surprised to know that I...

used to play the saxophone and I still sometimes do

What's your latest obsession?

Hip Hop from the 90's—I find it so much more interesting than the current stuff. The rappers then were really going through rough times, now they just pretend they are!


Your most prize possession?

That would definitely be my iPod! I use it every single day, music is really important to me!


Growing up, who did you look up to as your hero?

I used to really look up to Leonardo DiCaprio. I love this one particular movie of his called Basketball Diaries. Although it is not really a movie for kids!


When is the last time you said "I Love You" to someone?

My mom just before I got on the plane to New York (Editor's note: Milo is back in Europe now)


Your favorite place you have travel to

I went to Colombia with my brother, my uncle has a farm in the jungle there. I have some amazing memories from that summer!


Your favorite scene from a film

The Party—favorite scene: The intercom scene with Peter Sellers, it was just brilliant!


Describe your personal style

Casual and comfortable


Your favorite sport or sports figure

Sport: Soccer—Belgium team are fun to watch because they are so bad!

Team: Belgium soccer team, Den Beerschen


If there's a destination or item you would recommend us to check out or visit about your native country/city or town, what would you recommend?

PlaceAntwerp! Everyone should come and visit!

Food—Belgian waffles—The waffles taste so much better if you eat them in Belgian!


Your favorite song/artist

Juicy by Biggie Smalls—This changes all the time though


Your greatest moment in modeling so far...for you

I enjoyed almost every shoot I have done to date but the Topman campaign was definitely a highlight. It was my first campaign so it was all very exciting. Everyone treated me so well!


What is your new year wish for 2011?

I wish I can keep on traveling and working with amazing people!
