The modeling scene

Julie Henderson’s illustrious life

 

Julie Henderson is a face to watch. The Texan, who has skimpily graced the pages of Sports Illustrated (she holds the record for the longest consecutive appearances in the mag), was in town for Swim Week showing off some swimsuit designs of her own for Basta Surf. We found out what makes the current New Yorker tick:

How did you begin your career?

I started locally in Houston until I was scouted at 16. Then I was back and forth to New York until I finished school and moved to Paris.

Do you have a favorite assignment?

After seven years with Sports Illustrated we have become a little family and get to see the coolest parts of the world.

Do you have anywhere you’d kill to travel to?

My bucket list of places to go is so long, but my top three would be India, Southeast Asia and a safari in Africa.

Did anything ever crazy happen while on assignment?

I once was shooting in Venice and a pigeon pooped on my head! They say it’s good luck, but it didn’t feel like good luck to me.

What advice would you give people getting into the industry?

Stay true to yourself and don’t let anyone get you down.

How do you stay trim?

I try to keep everything in proportion. I don’t deprive myself of foods I love, and I don’t do crazy fad diets. I mix up my exercise to keep me motivated, from yoga to running through Central Park or on the beach.

What is your favorite type of workout?

Is laying on the beach a workout?! Joking. I truly enjoy boxing. It’s fun, and if you’ve had a stressful day, it helps.

If you have a cheat day what do you eat?

Mexican, Mexican, Mexican. Who doesn’t love a good Mexican meal?

Connery greeted and shook hands with fans as he entered the room and was overheard chatting with restaurant owner Nino Pernetti about the World Cup, saying he regrets that his native country Scotland did not qualify and that England was eliminated in the first round. He did concede that Germany was the rightful winner. Connery also told Pernetti that what he enjoys most in life after making movies is ... soccer. The ex 007 left the restaurant, saying “Cheerio,” to the owner and his starstruck guests.
