The Modeling Industry’s Next Brazilian Star, Paula Weckerle on Her Career Path




Paula Weckerle, who is with the prestigious The Industry agency in New York, is a true all-around model on the rise. From her diversified portfolio to her natural appeal, she stands out against a largely filter-and-filler saturated fashion world. The Brazilian beauty took some time to chat with us about her career goals and path.

Q: What do you love most about modeling and the fashion industry?

A: I like that I am able to make new connections, that so often become friends, and of course the traveling! I also love that I get to be versatile and creative; I do more fashion work and runway in the beginning of the year, and then in the second half I switch to more commercial projects, and even fitness modeling. I love being a chameleon. 

Q: Who are some of your role models? Whose career do you admire in the industry, and who inspires you?

A: Cindy Crawford—I think she had an amazing career. And she was also a chameleon, doing everything from fashion to hosting. I think she’s the full package and I really admire her. I also love that she was authentic and a natural real woman, which is how models used to be, with curves and no plastic surgery, which I resonate with and find empowering for younger girls. 

Q: What do you see as your highest achievement so far in your modeling career?

A: Honestly, I’ve had so many incredible clients and jobs that it’s hard to choose one. But in the beginning of my career, I got to work with a huge Brazilian designer, Arthur Caliman and it was my first big job that I still cherish because I learned so much from it. Also, being in New York Fashion Week has been incredible because it was a dream of mine when I first got into modeling. 

Q: Landing which job or client would make you feel like you ‘made it’ in the industry?

A: Working with high-end fashion designers like Dior, D&G. Haute Couture brands like Zuhair Murad would be a dream come true, and for beauty, a campaign with Chanel is like the ‘top.’ And of course, being in the pages of Vogue would feel like I’ve made it. 

Q: What is the main thing you want to achieve either in the business or through it, later? Is there a post-modeling goal?

A: I like to stay focused on the present; that’s my way of living. I want to do as much as I can and work as much as I can in the industry today. Instead of looking too much into the future I work on improving myself now and being fully present on my current clients and shoots. But as far as post-modeling, it would be incredible to eventually work with one the top designers I mentioned in a communications capacity or writing, as I really enjoy that.

Q: How are you responding to the pause in the industry due to the pandemic? How are you responding to the situation, and do you have any coping advice for others?

A: It’s been hard because I do not have my usual routine of working out, going to castings, and working on shoots and jobs. But I am hopeful that things will turn around soon. I’ve shifted my workout to at-home fitness, and I am finding that it is healthier to spend less time on my phone and on news outlets during this time. Instead I focus on reading, baking and working out to keep calm. I am focusing on what I can control, and that’s my advice for others too.

Crafting Excellence: Vidyut Xavier’s Journey from Assistant Choreographer to Dynamic Actor




A fresh new face has arisen in Hindi cinema, where extravagant performances frequently take center stage, mesmerizing viewers with his genuineness and adaptability. The definition of brilliance in the acting industry has been redefined by rising star Vidyut Xavier, who has had a remarkable career. From his humble beginnings as a choreographer’s assistant to his acting work, Xavier’s journey is inspiring.

The journey of Xavier began at the center of the Hindi film industry. He was already a part of the film industry because he was the son of renowned cameraman Thomas A. Xavier and had a mother named Swati Xavier, a well-known costume designer. He strongly connected to the filmmaking tradition, which fueled his desire to leave a lasting impression.

His ascent began with a role many wouldn’t consider glamorous: background dancer and assistant choreographer. Under the guidance of Rekha Prakash, Xavier has learned the art of movement and rhythm, setting the stage for his future success as an actor. This early exposure to performance nuances laid a strong foundation for the authenticity that would later become his hallmark.

His commitment to constant growth was a defining characteristic of Xavier’s development. He pursued a mass media degree to add intellectual rigor to his creative endeavors. His combination of intellect and creativity gave him a distinctive viewpoint that he would later apply to his acting roles.

Xavier’s entry into the television industry was made possible by the show “Dhadkan Zindaggi Kii.” He received praise for his natural acting technique in a field that is sometimes noted for its theatricality because his portrayal of Dr. Abhay Sathe struck a deep chord with the audience. The program allowed Xavier to emerge as an aspiring actor by displaying his aptitude for giving characters nuance and authenticity.

Xavier served as an assistant director in “Dabbang,” a seamless transition from television to movies from which he learned different aspects of what goes behind the screen. His ability to approach his profession in various ways demonstrated his commitment to participating in all facets of his endeavors.

With parts in shows like “Mahabharat” (TV) and “Pavitra Bhagya,” where he continually demonstrated his range as an actor, Xavier’s career continued to flourish. Notably, his music video “Jeene De” gave his artistic resume a new depth and demonstrated his adaptability outside the boundaries of conventional acting.

Vidyut Xavier stands out as a welcome example of an emerging talent who can change the way in a field dominated by well-known actors. His transformation from a dynamic performer to a choreographer’s assistant inspires struggling or upcoming artists by highlighting the value of sincerity, hard effort, and humility. He solidifies his reputation as a young actor who is skilled in acting, dancing, and performing his own stunts and brings a genuine charm to every job.

Xavier’s journey has begun, and he is gradually rising towards being extremely successful. He carries all the skills and talents it takes to be a star. He is ready to leave a lasting legacy based on excellence, authenticity, and the unrelenting pursuit of his dreams, thanks to his perseverance, passion, and dedication to his trade.
