How did you get into modelling and how long have you been doing it for?
I started when I was 15, so five years I’ve been doing this. I intially entered a competition in St Lukes Mall with a friend. The woman who ran it suggested I send some photos to Amanda at Red 11 – it snowballed from there.
What has been your favourite job so far?
My most recent highlight was going to Bali to shoot for a Japanese mag. That was pretty cool.
Favourite place to model so far?
London and Tokyo.
Dream modelling job?
A Balenciaga campaign shot by Steven Meisel.
What do you love about modelling, and what do you hate about it?
I love it all. The travel is a bonus, especially coming from New Zealand. It’s stressful and you never know what’s happening with your life but I love it all.
And the money?
Realistically, aside from commercial work and unless you hit the top, there’s not too much money to be made at all.
What about Fashion Weeks?
They’re exciting and fun, but hard work. There’s something about Fashion Weeks that separate the physically strong from the mentally weak.
What about staying in shape? Dieting and exercise and all of that? How do you find it?
My dad’s side of the family is super petite and I’ve always been like this. I love savoury food, I’m not so much a treats person. I go to the gym a couple of times a week. I’m pretty lucky with my genetics, you see some horrible things in model apartments…
If you weren’t modelling, what would you be doing?Right now I’m modelling full time and studying via correspondance. If I weren’t modelling I’d probably move to Sydney and study. At the moment I am studying Marketing and Statistics but I think I’d quite like to do something in Journalism…
What’s the last thing you bought?
A blue Kate Sylvester shirt. I actually treated myself to a couple!
Roasted sweet potatoes and Okonomayaki – it’s a kind of savoury Japanese pancake.
Karlie Kloss and Daria Werbowy.
Home with family and friends.
What’s something people wouldn’t necessarily know about you?
I really want to do Hip Hop lessons in New York and go sky diving at the end of the year. Also, I’m tone-deaf.
