Where did you grow up?
What was your high school mascot?
We didn’t have one.
What was your favorite class in school?
How long have you been modeling?
What has been your favorite job?
“The little black jacket” an homage to the Chanel classic was just one portrait but a memorable experience. I love runway and some of my favorite shows have been: Meadham Kirchoff, Issey Miyake, DVF, Vivienne Westwood.
Favorite places to shop:
Around Covent Garden in London, the Marais in Paris and I LOVE shopping in Cape Town.
Favorite places to eat:
I think the best food I’ve had, eating out, was in Sicily. I ate EVERything they offered at this fantastic place in Catania called Antica Marina.
Your favorite thing to cook yourself at home:
When it’s just me I don’t make anything special. Light salads and dips, I like to make hummus, soups. I like cooking for people more.
If you weren’t modeling, what would you be doing?
I think I’d still be in university… procrastinating.
Tell us a joke:
I’ve got a good one but it’s just too long.
