Her name might seem unfamiliar, but if you're a fan of vampire tales, her face would surely strike an impression.
Widely touted to be the next Elizabeth Taylor, it wasn't until recently that Argentine actress Mia Maestro had the entertainment industry take notice of her, after starring as Carmen the vampire in "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -Part 1".
The 33-year-old is also the voice behind "Llovera", a song that was featured on the soundtrack of the film.
Recently in town for the unveiling of Lux Body Foam's "Bewitch" campaign, which Mia is spokesperson for, xinmsn sat down for a tête-à-tête session with the actress where she dished out advice on how to be attractive.
"I think that a woman looks beautiful when she's confident," she said pensively, "People become bewitching when they feel strong, confident, and sure of themselves."
For Mia, the key to attaining confidence is learning how to be focused on oneself.
"When you are able to be at peace and in tune with yourself, then other people will also become in tune with you," she added.
So sure of herself is Mia that she readily scrapped a self-composed campaign song when she felt that it did not complement the visuals of the commercial.
