"I grew up at the beach so it feels like home"
You appear to be a absolute natural water babe when scrolling through your Insty! What makes you feel totally relaxed & confident when shooting swimwear?
I grew up at the beach so it feels like home.
Looking through your portfolio, beach babe YES but you also have this hint of the 80s and 90s! When you're shopping/dressing yourself - what is your style?
Mostly vintage, some stolen boyfriends clothes.
Represented in London, Sydney and LA - when you travel OS for work for an extended period of time - what do you do to get settled & feel home-sweet-home?
Surround yourself with the right people.
What or who first introduced you to modeling? Where you scouted?
I was scouted and signed when I was 14.
Your skin and those brows! Both are utterly unreal. How do you keep them in such good condition whilst living such a busy life? Hints please!
Leave brows alone! I think less is more when it comes to skincare - find the products that work for you but don’t mess with your skin too much.
What would be your favourite part of your body? Has it always been this way - or has it come with age?
You're physique is insane! What's your perfect workout? What do you feel as though gives you the best results?
I like yoga, walking, running. Not too often though. Listen to your body and don’t overwork yourself.
The new FELLA range looks as if it was designed for you! Elegantly sweet & playful. What other swimwear on It's Now Cool is grabbing your eye? Any summer trends you're loving?
Fella are so classic. The Seafolly daydreamer wrap one piece is also absolutely bomb.
In the lead up to a swimwear shoot - what does your schedule look like in terms of nutrition, workouts and sleep?
I eat pretty well so nothing changes really - I make more of an effort to work out if I know I’m shooting swim haha but schedule stays the same. + drink lots of water.
Tell us one thing about yourself that surprises people when you first meet them?
I used to eat pure butter as a child.
Best 3 products in your makeup kit right now?
Embryolisse moisturiser, benefit lip stain, eyebrow gel.
You have a few days in LA to yourself - which 3 spots are you're visiting before you leave?
Tiki Ti, Tuna Canyon and my best friends house to see her and her dog.
Same question, but this time you're in London?
Stay home and cry cos I never want to leave.
Your absolute guilty pleasure?
I don’t think I have one - if you like something, own it.
You could have dinner with anyone in the world - who is the lucky individual?
Who was the last person to make you feel starstruck?
The guy who voices Joe Swanson on Family Guy.
You must be a seasoned traveller by now. Tips to pass the time at an airport?
