Bon Goût: Mila Victoria

Mila Victoria loves watching chick flicks and traveling. If it wasn’t for make-up and photography she would’ve been an Olympic gold medal figure skater by now.

1. How important is style/appearance to you?
As long as it represents you and you’re not fighting it, let it be! An extension of your self expression.

2. How would you describe your style?
Present. I don’t have a style. It’s whatever I’m feeling that day, what I envision myself to me in the future. Always evolving. I like change, a lot.

3. What’s your favourite item?
My combat boots. Brings me back to when I was in army cadets, haha.

4. What’s your favourite cosmetic product?
Lipstick, obviously. I don’t even know how many I own, just for myself and not including my makeup kit!

5. How would you describe your ideal partner?
The one I’m with right now – supportive, understanding, hardworking, confident, always full of surprises, open-minded, funny… and handsome! Not in that particular order, of course.

6. Does he/she have to be stylish?
Not really. Just don’t be a try hard. We all know style starts with self-confidence. As far as his style, according to him, he’s on his “Runway shit.”

7. How much time do you spend in the morning to get ready?
If I don’t have much time (which is most of the time), I throw on my riding pants, combat boots, some loose shirt and a statement jacket (my taupe, leather studdded motorcycle jacket, army tunic, etc)

8. Who is a style inspiration to you?
I have many style inspirations. Not one more than the other though. I admire people who can keep evolving with their style, or have a staple classic look and are able to maintain and carry themselves throughout all trends. I’m inspired by colours, textures, nature, animals, editorials, thinking outside the box, minimalism.. I can keep going. I follow my intuition. Anyone who is confident, is my inspiration. It is so important. Surround yourself with good people, friends. Really feel YOU. That will radiate through all material things.

Mila is a make-up artist and beauty photographer represented by Plutino Group in Canada. She was born and raised in downtown Toronto. I suspect she does stand up comedy on the side. Her blog.
