Today we had the opportunity to speak exclusively with the British bombshell…
Thank you for speaking with us today! Our readers would like to know, how did you get into modelling?
I lived near London and every time I went into the city, I was approached by a model scout from one of the leading agencies who gave me their business card and suggested I should consider modeling. I was 14 at the time and as it happened a lot my Mum and I decided it might be worth following up with one of them. So we went to see Storm Models and I was signed on the spot.
Do you recall the moment you first found out you were going to be working for GUESS?
My agent called me and told me the news that GUESS wanted to book me for one of their major campaigns and I was beyond excited. It was a real ‘pinch me’ moment! I was so excited to have the opportunity to work with this iconic brand!
Over the course of your modelling career, what has been your most memorable shoot to
I have been so lucky to work in amazing locations all over the world and each one has had something so special about it. One standout fun one was a photoshoot at the Le Mans 24 Hours race in France for GUESS, I absolutely loved the energy from the crowd who were watching, and the atmosphere was incredible.
Who is your greatest inspiration and why?
My mum. She is my best friend and biggest supporter and one of the strongest people I know, she brought me, my sister and brother up for a while as a single mum and she has shown me what you can achieve if you have drive and determination.
What is your favorite item in your wardrobe?
My favorite item in my wardrobe is my backpack because it travels the world with me!
What is your greatest strength?
I think one of my greatest strengths is being unapologetically myself.
What advice would you give to someone looking to get into the modelling industry?
Don’t compare yourself to others: everyone has their own unique look and personality so don’t feel like you need to be the same as everyone else to succeed. My favorite quote is admire someone else’s beauty without questioning your own.
