Question Time With Laura
What website could you not live without and why?
Many people can’t live without one of the most popular websites that is Facebook... and me too. I am in touch with my friends from all over the world and I can read about their latest news.
What is the best app you’ve used in the last year?
It may seem funny but for me it’s a flashlight. When I need more light in the evening or there is no lighting it’s great to have this app.
What is your favourite fashion website?
It’s a website and also a fashion magazine in Slovakia: EVA.CAS.SK There is the latest trends, articles about beauty, health and lifestyle.
What item of makeup could you not live without?
I can’t live without mascara because it makes my eyelashes longer.
What is your most famous/memorable encounter?
It was when I met Claudia Cardinale at the ceremony of a film festival. I was the one who had the pleasure to hand to her the Actor’s Mission Award. She is an elegant, charismatic lady with a smile on her face all the time. She has very, very positive energy and it was an unforgettable meeting in my life.
What annoys you most about the world you live in?
The thing which makes me sad is people’s attitude to the environment, people throw rubbish on the ground, pollute air, soil, water and they don’t care about it. They care only about themselves. That’s the reason why I became a member of the project eco-driving, we protect out air against exhausts.
