Full-time or part-time model?
I model full time and I am taking acting classes.
You recently appeared in the ING TV ad with Isla Fischer – tell us about that experience?
Being involved in the ING Direct commercials was an amazing whirlwind! We filmed in London with a great crew and we were very well looked after. Isla is just a genuine, down to earth, professional Aussie girl who happens to be a vibrant ball of energy, oozing with creativity. Her commitment and improvisation skills were great for me to work off, as an actor. I feel very lucky to be part of it - and thanks genetics for letting me resemble Isla!
How do you keep fit and healthy?
I've eaten gluten free for 5 ish years, so I can say no to fun things like pasta, cake and biscuits. But mostly I eat clean, because I like plain food! Give me chicken or eggs with roast veg and I'm happy. I'm not too strict though, if I feel like a little chocolate.. you've gotta live right? I don't like the gym, but I love pilates reformer. I also like to walk for hours listening to music, because good health includes the mind and soul as well!
What are your beauty must-haves?
Clear skin is a must! I use Clarins eyecream & moisturiser and remove make up gently with Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser. I also use an Aveeno brightening scrub every couple of days. And wearing sunscreen is vital!
I'm simple with make up too - I don't wear foundation unless I am at work, so just a little concealer under the eyes and some Nude by Nature translucent powder. Clarins Beauty Flash Balm is a great little 'wake-up' too. Cannot live without mascara! Preferably MAC. And some light pink blush. I have curly, often dry hair so I can't live without Schwarzkopf Leave-In Treatment after conditioner.
What was the best job / modelling experience you have ever had?
I think I would have to refer back to the ING Direct ad. Great experience, great client and my lucky friends and family are now forced to see my face on their television everyday - haha!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I like to walk, especially with friends. I spend a lot of time decorating my house and then rearranging it again. Netflix. And I love to draw actually, its very therapeutic.
How would you describe your personal style?
I'm a bit of a mixed bag. My standard look is a white tee + jeans + converse (or boots) and then I'll add an on trend coat or bomber jacket etc. On the other hand I love anything with a 60's or 70's vibe - give me bell sleeves, wide leg pants, long boots, LACE anyday. I will often throw in something random too like floral jeans, just because I like to be different.
What do you like to splash out on?
I have always splashed out on shoes, because they are an investment right? Right. Always on travel. And now at this stage of life its furniture and homewares!
What’s something most people wouldn’t know about you?
My parents are English and Czech. I don't like cheese. I have extremely bendy feet like a ballerina. Most people don't know that I draw, I like to copy from photographic portraits.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what would be your dream gig?
In 5 years I'd like to be working in TV and film, here or overseas. Like most, my dream modelling gig would have to be walking in the Victoria's Secret show, but more realistically, probably the face of an international high fashion brand.
