Juliana Gomez is one of the new faces we're coming to know. Born into the limelight as Richard Gomez and Lucy Torres-Gomez's only daughter, this 17-year-old is someone you ought to watch out for. She may seem reserved at first glance, but this It girl on the rise has a free spirit destined to roam the world.

Below, we talk to Juliana about her love for fashion and traveling.
