Angelina Kendall On Her Meteoric Rise to Top Model

Angelina Kendall’s life lately has been a bit of a rollercoaster. In just over a year, she packed her bags, circled the globe, celebrated her 18th birthday, and reached some of the highest echelons in the fashion industry. Spotted by mother agent Simone Hellicar from The Scouted in the background of a friend’s social media video, Kendall swiftly took to modeling like it was second nature. But what is it about Angelina that has made her stand out amongst all the noise and become one of the most sought-after models of the moment? Maybe it’s her upbringing spent between Sydney’s laid-back Northern Beaches region (known affectionately by locals as the ‘Insular Peninsula’) and her mother’s birthplace of Rio de Janeiro. Thanks to this, she possesses a unique fusion of laconic Aussie chill and tenacious Brazilian zest. And, despite her tender age, she has a magnetism that draws people in – a quality that, when combined with her killer work ethic and effortless beauty, draws comparisons to the iconic Gisele Bündchen. Amidst the scorching Australian summer heat, during her first trip home to Sydney since launching her international career, spent the day with the Top 50 Model where she shared the details of her rapid rise from obscurity to prominence with us.
