Model Yasmin Geurts has a thoroughly modern discovery story. Rather than getting buttonholed at the mall or spotted on Instagram, she submitted photos to agencies herself. The powers that be at Muse Model Management took note of her gap tooth and strong brows, and she soon signed with the agency’s curve division.

Since then, she’s appeared in shoots for Jalouse and Dazed & Confused, and modeled for Diane von Furstenberg. Geurts has also built up quite a following on Instagram, where you can see her hanging out with fellow models Barbie Ferreira and Paloma Elsesser and posting throwback images of Anjelica Huston and Rose McGowan. Read on for her lightning-round answers to our interview questions.
