Inside the world of top model, Rayan Ricci
France-born and bred Lebanese rapidly-rising model, Rayan Ricci Farhat is poised to rule the world of modeling and acting. While he hasn’t really got started as an actor, he has made some impressive progress in the competitive space of modeling, having had a few cameos with top brands in the world of fashion and style.
Growing up in the suburbs in the north of Paris, Ricci had a vision of the world he wanted and thus became obsessed in traveling, which was really his first passion. He would buy Vogue magazine to keep acquainted with the happenings in the entertainment and fashion world.
“About modeling, I remember myself buying Vogue every month even when I didn’t have enough money. I would ask my mom to buy them for me even though she didn’t understand what for? But for me it was like dreaming, and from that I always knew that I would love to represent a brand, an ideology, a movement or something that preaches my own style or convictions,” he once disclosed in an interview.
Knowing what he wanted out of life he developed some profound tastes and hobbies which have helped to put him on the right path.
“I have always had a passion for travelling. Since I was a kid, my dad (a Lebanese) always took me and my brother to Lebanon for the summer. I only saw Lebanon between when I was born till my 17th birthday. When I turned 17, I refused to go again, closed that way and decided to discover new countries, new cultures and new people. I think that choice created my passion for traveling and this yearning to discover what the world has to offer,” he said.
Concerning sport, he had always loved swimming.
“I’m really good at it. Other sports I love are tennis, boxing, horsing and athletics,” he once revealed.
According to him, he works out everyday.
“I can’t live without it. I think it is as a result of all these passions that I have been working with all the brands I work with today. I am careful about my diet; no smoking, no alcohol and no drugs. I don’t even eat candies,” he said.
He has a huge passion for art too.
“I do love art, especially concerning the history of the world. I love paintings, sculptures, texts and all artistic things such as modeling, photography or even cinema. For me, it represents a specific feeling or story and I love it. I usually describe my own feelings with songs or pictures.”
