Natalia Galea is one of the hot names in the local modelling industry. She is beautiful, young, bold, incredibly photogenic and with that sense of chic and glamour very few possess. It is by no coincidence that she has recently been crowned Miss World Malta. Oh, and she is a lawyer and also finds time to fit in charity work in-between. Natalia spills her beauty rules, tells us what it takes to be a successful model and how she juggles her busy agenda and her personal life.
How did you start modelling?
From a very young age, I was always inclined to the media and the arts. So much so that as a child I used to play pretend as an actor and newscaster. Then, in 2015 I took a step toward this dream of mine and I enrolled in a local pageant. However, it was in 2018 when I achieved the honour to represent my country in an international grand slam pageant. This experience then launched my career as a fashion and commercial model.
What is your beauty regimen?
I strongly believe that drinking lots of water and having healthy and balanced eating habits while also exercising regularly alongside a basic skincare routine is the way to go.
What is your favourite season?
I personally don’t have one season I prefer, as all of them have different treasures to enjoy. Even so, I do think that in Summer the island life here in Malta is truly at its peak.
Tell us about your personal style.
My personal style is very broad in my opinion. I enjoy being casual and natural on my days off. Still, I also relish the glam and artistic side of me when going out.
Who are your favourite designers?
My favourite duo locally are Charles & Ron. Internationally,
I admire the work of Alessandro Michele.
What advice would you give someone starting out?
Never stop working hard for your dreams. Always keep moving forward especially when you are struggling and facing setbacks. Remember that only you can hold yourself back from doing something that you set your mind to do. The industry is tough, but with perseverance, determination and hard work, there are no limitations to what can be accomplished.
What’s next for Natalia Galea?
After several months of preparations, I will be proudly representing Malta at the 71st edition of Miss World. Nevertheless, in the meantime, I will also continue to pursue my dream of working as a model and an actress while carrying out my Miss World Malta duties.
