Place of Origin: Miami
The beautiful Rachel Serrano was kind enough to sit down with Elite Daily and tell us a little more about herself. Check out the interview below:
Elite: What is the best city you’ve been to?
Rachel: I’d have to say La Romana, in the Dominican Republic. I stayed in a resort called Casa De Campo. It was AMAZING. The people were friendly, the food was great, and the place was beautiful. I can’t emphasize on how great it was.
Elite: How important is style when it comes to representing who you are? Why?
Rachel: It’s very important to me; it’s one of the first thing people see. I believe that style is about feeling good about yourself and at the same time being unique. I like to always have one statement piece on whether it’s a ring, or a patterned scarf; it shows off a bit of confidence and differentially.
Rachel: Bad hygiene! I’m a clean freak. I don’t even like cuddling with my boyfriend after a long day if he’s not fresh out of the shower. It’s annoying, but it’s worth it.
Elite: What types of styles should never be put together?
Rachel: I don’t believe there are any rules to styling; it’s all about what you like and what makes you happy. What I think may not look good together, can be completely different from what the next person thinks. If you feel comfortable in what you’re rocking, then that’s all that matters.
Rachel: A real gentleman that knows how to take control, it’s like the perfect package. Turn off? Cockiness, immaturity, and again, bad hygiene!
Elite: Who should pay on the first date?
Rachel: Definitely the guy. It probably wouldn’t feel like a first date if I had to pay. But remember, first dates don’t have to be pricey! I’d prefer homemade goodness on the beach than the most expensive restaurant in the city.
Elite: How would you describe your style in 3 words?
Rachel: Classy, bold, glamorous.
Rachel: I think I’d have to say CrossFit, I do it every day. CrossFit is an intense, demanding all-out physical exertion workout. I love the feeling after a great workout. And the feeling of knowing I finished faster than a guy.
Elite: If you could work with someone, (celebrity) who would it be?
Rachel: Ryan Gosling, or maybe Jake Gyllenhaal…or maybe both…together. My life would be complete if I got to be apart of that much sexiness in a day.
Elite: Who are your role models?
Rachel: In the modeling world, Gisele Bundchen…love her. She shows me that you can pretty much attain anything you desire. In real world, my mom. No explanation needed.
