Discovered I was discovered by a woman that used to model for Velocci. I went to see Mario with short black and blonde hair and lots of make-up on (short but sweet phase), but he saw something behind all that!Elite (Hong Kong)
Best Modelling Moment Filming Project Runway Canada, I learned a lot from that show.
Awkward Modelling Moment My very first fashion week. The first second I walked out onto the runway I hit my hip off the wall as I was coming out. Luckily most people were still looking at the other girl that came out before me!
Favourite Market Well I haven't travelled yet but I plan to very soon. First stop - Asia.
Favourite Model Milla Jovovich (so beautiful and diverse) Daria Werbowy (an inspiration) and Jessica Stam (just love her look!)
Most embarrassing song on your iPod? Haha, my iPod is so eclectic. Here's the top 3;The Right Stuff by New Kids On The Block, Shoes from the YouTube video (yes it's on my iPod) and Saturday Night Dance by Whigfield.
