Clara Más is a model. Actually, a Top model! At once a modest woman and above all, very natural.

As well as being fun (always with a smile on her face), Clara is a great lover of nature and animals (her pup Piga would definitely confirm this!).

For all this and so much more, we love her! So today, we want to reveal a little more about this fabulous woman.

What inspires you in life? I'm inspired by nature: the sea, the full moon when it rises and it's blood red. And I'm inspired by my kids having fun.

When did you know you wanted to be a model? I started when I was 10, so it just seemed natural to me. It started as a bit of fun and became my job. I think it's a profession that creates a lot of opportunities but, at the same time, you need to have your feet on the ground and be aware that, like a professional athlete, it is time limited.

Is it easy being a woman in your world? Well the truth is, women in fashion are better paid than the men. So I'm not complaining! I don't think there are many industries where we enjoy better conditions than men. There's still a lot of work to do to achieve real gender equality.

What is your favourite place on the planet? Well, Cap de Creus, Cadaqués and Collsecabra are places where I could stay for days on end. I've travelled a lot, I've been to many places, but there's nothing quite like our coasts (the Costa Brava and the Balearic Islands), nothing! I'm a fan of the MEDITERRANEAN, the culture, the people, the cuisine and the traditions...

You do a lot of sport. What's your favourite? Well, I love running, hiking, swimming and doing yoga and Pilates. I really couldn't say which is my favourite. I think I'd describe myself as multidisciplinary. I think it's best to do different sports that complement each other.

Are you more of a mountains or city type? Mountains. We've been living in Cabrils, in Maresme, for a year now, trying out life away from the city. But, I do love Barcelona. I lived in el Raval for 12 years and I'm really fond of that neighbourhood and la Barceloneta (I used to go running and swimming there; there are a couple of great clubs right on the beach!).

Your favourite artist? Picasso and Matisse.

What are your wardrobe must-haves? Comfortable clothes, especially since becoming a mum. As well as a good pair of jeans and some heels for special occasions. And a fitted black jacket.

A book and a song
Book: "Man's Search for Meaning", by Victor Frankl.
Song: ‘Desfado’ by Ana Moura.

Something in your bag you can’t live without? Lip balm and tissues for the kids. Oh! And some nuts for when we get hungry.

And in your fridge? There are always free range eggs from round the corner, butter and nice home-made jam. There's also plenty of yoghurt and lots and lots of cheese.

Your favourite food? Hmmmmmm. A good ‘pa amb tomàquet’ with a good Manchego cheese, Jabugo ham and avocado. And good wine of course!
Or a crepe on a Sunday, made with love.
Or a home-grown tomato with oil and salt.
Or Italian mozzarella with oil, salt and basil from the garden.

An eco-friendly tip for saving the planet? Don't waste food. There are lots of people going hungry. In the West, we throw away 30% of what we buy.
I volunteered at the Barcelona Food Bank for a couple of years. I worked in the Communications Department, helping to raise awareness among people and in companies and organisations, to try to prevent food waste. There's a lot of work to be done still, but there are a lot more companies on board now.

A dream you’d like to come true. I think we need to work harder to persuade people to buy responsibly, at all levels, in terms of food, but other things as well, clothes, cars, technology and so on.
Lately, it's like our DNA has been programmed to make us consume more and more without thinking about the consequences. Less is more!

What are you going to do after this interview? It's 9.30 am. My youngest got up 3 hours ago. The eldest 2 hours ago. They're at nursery and school and I'm in Barcelona about to go to a casting for a face cream. Hopefully they'll pick me! Bye!
