Why modelling?

I started modelling after my mother entered me into a model competition and won. Not long after winning, I went on to study Bachelor Of Fashion Design at RMIT University but only managed to complete a few months of the course before things started to take off with modeling.
I’d always loved the fashion industry and thought modelling was a great way to gain first hand experience.

What is the best thing about being a model?

The best thing about modeling is being able to travel the world and experience all kinds of cultures whilst meeting interesting people…

Obviously your modeling career has led you to some exciting new ventures in LA and the US. Tell me about them.

I’ve been so grateful to have experienced so many amazing adventures in the US.

Starting off with shooting a campaign for Oscar Del La Renta in Panama, also a Wella Hair Campaign and constant work for La Perla and Urban Outfitters… Most recently, being cast in the Dysney classic “The Muppets…Again” Movie and filming a part on “Wilfred” the US TV series. I’m also excited to say that I’m now represented by NEXT Management as an Actor, Model and Artist.

What demands does modelling place on you physically and mentally?

I’ve always had quite a positive attitude towards my physical appearance. As a model, you constantly get judged on your looks so it’s important to be confident and just believe in yourself? As with any career, I also think it’s important to have a strong family base for support.

Tell me some of your best achievements as a model.

Some of my career highlights thus far would have to include being the face of “iSelect Fashion Aid” in 2012, The Face of L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, Face of WestEnd at Crown and Elwood Clothing, being a finalist in Series 1 of Network Ten’s “Serach For A Supermodel” Competition, working for Luis Vuitton, Armani, D&G, Chanel, Versace, La Perla, Oscar De La Renta and recently getting a featured role in the new “The Muppets…Again” Movie.

Where do you see yourself in five years from now?

In five years from now…I see myself with a family of my own and painting all day long?

Do you prefer editorial or runway modelling? Why?

I love both equally.
I always get an amazing adrenaline rush from doing shows. There’s nothing quite like strutting down a runway to a great beat! ?
And I also love the creative process that happens behind the scenes of a photo shoot. It’s so inspiring…

Is there a particular model or fashion house you’d like to model with or for?

I’d love to work with my sister-Model/Actress Mena Lovin. We’d have so much fun!

Tell me one of the strangest shoots you’ve ever been apart of.

One of the strangest shoots I’ve ever been apart of was whilst working in HK just recently.
It was a shoot for Marie Claire and they airbrushed my skin to look pale.
It was quite a challenge trying to keep the make-up off all the designer clothes they had me wear in the shoot.
