Place of Origin:

Birthsign:
Pisces

How discovered:
My older sister posted a photo of me on her Instagram and some of her friends commented that she should take me in to see the ladies at Viviens. She sent in some photos and organised a meeting and that’s that :)

Favorite things:
Some of my favourite things are painting, watching movies and swimming down at Scarborough Beach… If I could do all these things simultaneously that would be the ultimate dream.

What are you listening to at the moment?
I’m currently obsessed with The Sex Pistols, Grimes, FKA Twigs, King Krule and a little bit of Blondie.

Favorite movie, tv show:
I’m a hopeless romantic so I love Pride and Prejudice (Both the book and movie) I also love Australian classics like Mad Max and Priscilla Queen of the Desert. My favourite TV show would definitely have to be RuPauls Drag Race! It’s so good that I don’t even need an explanation :)

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
My favourite designer at the moment would have to be Aussie label, Discount Universe. Swimming in the ocean is one of my major beauty hacks, the salt water softly cleanses and exfoliates…

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
To be honest I’d be sitting in a tiny apartment that doubled as my painting studio, surrounded by all my paints and canvases with soft music playing in the background, drinking chocolate milk and creating pieces of art that people would cherish and love forever.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I love wearing odd socks… Back at home I don’t think a pair of matching socks exist, I always lose one so now it’s become force of habit and I kind of prefer it.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
Do you know what? I seriously can’t pick just one… I’ve done so many cool shoots with wicked concepts that I just can’t choose. Not too long ago I did this night shoot with an amazing team, I shot all around Brooklyn until 3am… it was freezing but the photos turned out so cool that all of that was easily forgiven.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I love the beach culture and how it seems that on a hot day, the whole of Perth is down by the water swimming, playing beach cricket/soccer and eating fish n chips. I miss my dog (Barney) who has been my best friend for 16 years.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I’d love to work for Alexander McQueen! Ever since I first understood the concept of fashion I have loved Alexander McQueen and how his label pushed and still pushes the envelope. Sarah Burton has done such an amazing job to carry on his legacy.

Place you would love to visit:
I would love to visit Austria to see what place created and inspired my favourite artist (Gustav Klimt) to create such beautiful masterpieces. Also two of my roommates from NYC are Austrian, and the stories/photos they showed me were amazing.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
I’m currently obsessed with scary movies, it’s weird because ever since I was young I absolutely hated them and couldn’t sleep for a week after watching one But I have grown to respect and actually enjoy them ( Definitely not alone at night time though hehehe).

    One of the most interesting new faces at this moment, reminiscent of the beauty of the eighties, I want to see her in the editorials.

    Looks like a conventionally beautiful version of Lara Stone!
