How did you get into modelling

When I was about 13 or 14 and going to school in Bali, a lot of girls my age modelled for friend’s parent’s clothing lines and stuff like that. I signed with Balistarz agency around that time and did jobs on weekends and school holidays. When I graduated, I came to Sydney and signed with The Agency Models, and it took off from there!

What did you want to be growing up

I always kind of wanted to be a model. My mum used to manage Dally’s in Brisbane and is best friends with JDW, and they were both huge influences in my life growing up, giving me advice on style and etiquette and being a lady! At one point I wanted to be like Grace Kelly and be a movie star/the princess of Monaco haha.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modelling

Modelling has been a constant part of my life for a long time, but it hasn’t really prevented me from doing other things I’m interested in. I finished my Bachelors in 2012, and I’m currently doing my Masters in Peace and Conflict Studies. I don’t have a plan yet, but I hope to keep balancing modelling with other passions.

What would be your ultimate modelling job

Working for any of the big European fashion houses would be a dream come true! Also it would be amazing to do a beauty campaign for any of the big make-up names. I especially loved Estee Lauder’s campaigns with Caroline Murphy. And of course, being a Victoria’s Secret Angel!

Describe your style in 3 words

Comfortable, earthy, ever-changing.

Style Icon

At the moment I’m a bit obsessed with Kendall Jenner’s style. I also love Abbey Lee’s style, and Kate Moss.

Favourite go-to outfit

It depends where I am. In Bali, a bikini and a sarong! In Sydney, high-waisted jeans and a nice shirt with comfortable shoes.

If you could live in any decade which one would you choose and why

Maybe the 60’s, so I could go to Woodstock! I love the movie Factory girl and the fashion/art scene that was happening in New York at the time. There were also huge social movements happening that would have been amazing to experience.

Best vintage score

I bought a pair of Italian brown leather boots for $20 at a vintage market a couple of years ago that I have worn a million times and have never failed me.

Most treasured vintage piece

A vintage Trinity de Cartier ring that my mum gave me, I love it so much.

Favourite place to shop for vintage

Surry hills, the South end of King Street in Newtown, markets, and Enmore for crazy costume pieces.

Which piece did you love wearing most from the shoot?

I absolutely love the Moonstruck 70’s silk dress and the white, long sleeved wedding dress. Wearing it made me feel like I was in a fairytale! I also loved all of the vintage t-shirts, so comfortable and easy to style with anything.

Guilty pleasure

Definitely chocolate!

Happy place

My house in Bali with my family, dog Charlie, 3 cats, and my best friends.
