Acting and modeling rule my heart and my eagerness to make an impression in these areas, is not simply a hobby or a leisure interest of mine, but the reason for my existence. I truly believe deep down this feeling of urgency is purely forcing me toward something I was born to do. I do not find this business as only a reason to get noticed or make lots of money. This is definitely more than a fascination or a young girl's dream. Acting and modeling are the perfect blend of performance, personality, art and fashion. This combination displays the qualities I care to present to the world... I don't want to merely blend into these industries, I want to attack them and alter them and begin molding the minds of designers.. becoming a part of the change that ultimately fuels show business...Change is my addiction and my champion, it is what makes me enjoy one day from the next and anxious to explore the future no matter what it holds. I will metamorphize the industry transforming from fitness to fashion. I want to attack the fashion world bringing shape to the catwalk and sculpted curves to the major clothing campaigns. I feel the industry is obsessed with that underpriviledged frail look and it has only created a bad example of the idolized body. I think fashion should wake up and begin to take a giant step toward reality. Reality is that everyone is capable of developing good muscle tone with the right nutrition and exercise.... but very few can starve themselves to that anorexic look that is so played out by the fashion icons of today. I hope to bring this concept of beauty to a new era in the movement of fashion. I feel assured that by this time I will have created a name for myself and have gained the exposure to make another final and lasting career move into the realm of television and film. Because this where my heart and soul resides, to bring smiles to faces all over the world. I know my life is forever changed because of my ability to accept the reality of knowing the secret. The secret is... being prepared, because you never know when the opportunity of a lifetime will come. I only know it is closer than it ever was before. I will obtain success through the recognition of my hard work and talent. I can prove that I am 500 times more motivated than the average individual. My fighting urge will not give up or give in for anyone! I will accomplish the goals I have planned for myself, through patience and perseverance, ANYTHING is possible in this world and nothing can stand in my way. I believe the obstacles that have paved the path to where I am standing now have only strengthen my character and proved that my dreams will never die. NO matter how long it takes or how hard I have to work, I know all I really need is my willingness to follow whatever path takes me there.I feel confident that in combination with my mind and heart, I can and WILL become the leading edge in the entertainment world.
MONIQUE CAPELTA, THE DESIGNER.THE MODEL
When boot couture moguldom was still only a flash in her eye, a young but sentient Monique Capelta mused, “being fashionable is following the trend set by the crowd, but a fashion icon is one who attracts a crowd which inspires the trend.” Such logic is what sparked the framework for a line of boots, which has soared to the pinnacle of the fashion spectrum.
The tale originated in Troy, North Carolina—a tiny town of two traffic lights where a young Capelta had a grand dream of becoming an actress. In 2002, she moved to Manhattan, putting into drive the pursuits she had since she was a child. It was then, while roaming the avenues of the nation’s fashion capital, that Capelta noticed her surroundings consisted of people wearing the same brands, same styles, and often times identical items—essentially creating a fashion monotony. Realizing her luxury boots were labeled as high-end, yet no different from those that paraded the Big City streets everyday, Capelta sought out a couple vintage coats and went to work with a pair of sheers and a glue gun. That evening, the first pair of boots by Capelta was born.
During her time in New York she focused her energies on fitness modeling, and Capelta’s passion for acting was still unfulfilled. She landed a role in a feature film and moved to Los Angeles, along with her personal collection of boots, which had now reached the double digits. Immediately the convivial Capelta was approached by socialites about her boots on numerous occasions and eventually became convinced that her creative gift was something she needed to share with others.
Capelta became inundated with varying offers from big-name designers and venture capitalists, and after months of contemplating, she realized that she would sale her boots only if she held complete autonomy over her line. Not only would she be the designer, but she became the principle model, and personally engineered her website, catalogs, and all other marketing materials. The only way Capelta was to be satisfied was for her to have complete oversight over all creative aspects of her company, which is as much a testament to her work ethic as it is to her passion for her line. Many of these acts went against the grain of what was typical for a designer of couture, but Capelta refused to abide by a set of norms she viewed as substandard at the expense of her creative drive—just as she did when she spawned the first set of Capelta boots years before.
