If there’s any way to describe Sera Mann
, the words silly and humble might be a great way to start. “I can’t choose just one moment,” she responded in 2016 when Popular TV asked what was her proudest career moment, “but I would say when I conquered the metro system in Paris, London, Milan and New York. That to me was kind of a difficult thing and then I was like ‘Okay, this isn’t as hard as it looks.’” An unlikely answer from a beauty who’s become famous for tearing down runways, modeling for the likes of Christian Dior and Valentino.
But, of course, Mann would also stun the world when she’d appear in the May/June 2017 issue of Playboy
, her spread shot by famed photographer Christopher von Steinbach. The Texas-raised lovely is the picture of self-confidence and inner freedom. Her style? “I would say my style is whatever I’m feeling,” she’d confess in an interview. Something comfortable. It varies from being girly and having colorful pieces or just jeans and a tank top.” Her face has graced the cover of Elle Beauty
. And her life mantra is: things turn out the way you think about them. “Being positive and thinking positively,” Mann confessed. “I believe it changes your whole outlook.”
