“If you wanna be a power in the world then be yourself.” This is the mantra Australian actor and model Natasha Liu Bordizzo wants to share. Since Bordizzo landed the part of Snow Vase in 2016’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny after her very first audition, that world has been spinning fast.
“Since you’re constantly pushed out of your comfort zone, you never stop growing, learning and exploring. I’d be a different person if I hadn’t been pushed in the ways I have.”
Bordizzo’s spark has caught the eye of fashion heavyweights including Louis Vuitton creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, who secured her attendance at the house’s AW 16 show at the Fondation Louis Vuitton along with the likes of Alicia Vikander and Léa Seydoux.
“In being close with people from completely different worlds, I’m able to determine where I stand and know who I am.”
Among other firsts, the Louis Vuitton show marked Bordizzo’s virgin trip to Paris – yet another stop on her unending travel circuit, with Los Angeles as her current base. We captured her on Parisian streets, in the moment and on the move.
“I kind of let wherever I am swallow me whole. And enjoy it.”
