Model Aube Jolicoeur made the cover of Cosmopolitan South Africa last year. She’s been featured in Esquire, and Vogue. “The Project Runway” alumnus is one of the most popular models on the scene. She’s modeled for some of the world’s biggest fashion luxury brands: Altuzarra, Versace, Marc Jacobs, Emilio Pucci, and others. But beyond all her stunning beauty, is a woman who’s a deep thinker, and soul with maverick tendencies.
Kreyolicious: Who was the most stylish person you knew growing up?
Aube Jolicoeur: My mama. I never really grew up with her but I’ve seen photos of her and I’m just like “Wow mama, you had swag”.
Kreyolicious: When you’re on the runway…you don’t play. You exude confidence. Were you always this confident?
To be honest, I don’t know where my confidence comes from on the runway. It’s like I become this other fearless being. Growing up I struggled with insecurity, brought on mainly by bullies in school, and it just kind of stuck with me. I am just now learning to be confident in myself and not let my past define my future.

Kreyolicious: Is Haiti a place you travel to often?
I try my best to visit at least once a year. After being in the USA for twelve years straight, I returned to Haiti a few years back to surprise my mom and family. Ever since, I made a promise to myself not to let more than a year go between visits.
Kreyolicious: Where do you see yourself five years from today’s date?
Aube Jolicoeur: The difference between where I am now and where I was one year ago is extreme, so it’s difficult to imagine where I will be five years from now. I hope my career will continue to grow, and I also hope to get married and start a family in the next five years.
