Juliet Soane

Storm Management (London)




Place of Origin:
Surrey, England

Ethnic Origin:
Fully English


How discovered:
I was rooting around in a £1 nail polish bin at the Birmingham Clothes Show when I felt a tap on the shoulder.

What was your first modeling job?
I got a single page in a beauty story for Wonderland magazine, I was practically unrecognisable but that was the day I discovered catering on fashion shoots is always amazing and that’s the day I decided I wanted to be a model. (Absolutely buzzing when they say they’re ordering in Leon, that’s my favourite) (That wasn’t a product placement thing by the way)

What are you listening to at the moment?
I am BIG in to country music, right now my favourite banger ever is John Denver – Take me home country road. There’s nothing like a long drive on the M4, windows down, Dolly Parton blasting.

Favorite movie, tv show:
Without a DOUBT, Notting Hill!!!! Hugh Grant’s big floppy fringe, it looks like an animated cartoon- I could watch it all day long.

Favorite designer, fragrance or beauty product:
I honestly don’t own one designer product. Primark is quite major though (again, not a product placement thing). One day when I’m earning enough money I’d love to start shopping at Monki.

What were you doing before modeling?
I was sleeping through Maths class, but you know the way you do it when you put your head down so it looks like you’re writing, but you’re actually snoozing.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modeling?
I’d be in the firearm police force, and I’d want to work in Hackney because I love a challenge.

What’s something uncool that you love anyway?
I’m sorry, people can think what they want, but colouring books are AMAZING. So therapeutic, I love to get lost in a good colour by numbers.

Favorite modeling experience so far?
I shot the cover of Indie Mag in Croatia a few months back. I had the biggest crush on the producer, he gave me his jumper in between shots to keep warm- career highlight.

What’s the best thing about your hometown/country?
I’m from Staines-Upon-Thames in Surrey, hometown of Ali-G. We’ve got a Lidl on the way, soon to overtake Ali-G as the best thing about my hometown.

Which brand would you really love to model for?
I am so excited about my first ecomm shoot- I heard you’re allowed to be smiley!!?!

Place you would love to visit:
I really really really like Staines-Upon-Thames… honestly people should give it a chance.

Currently you’re obsessed with/about:
– Picking blackberries in the common
– My dog (Skittles, Tibetan Terrier)
– Youtube videos
– Hanging from my door frame (literally the best stretch ever)
– Colouring pens
– Making lists
– Crime documentaries
– People names (obsessed with my baby name book)
– Running

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
Don’t worry about something that hasn’t even happened!
