You have a very distinct personal style – how do you adapt current trends to fit that style? What’s your advice to those trying to create a unique style?
Well, I actually love exploring. I feel like my style has evolved so much over the years, and especially being in the fashion industry now, my exploring is only getting better - so I'm more willing to try new things. I think for the most part I really like comfort and cool and laid back and an androgynous feel. That's sort of very general when I say that because there is so much you can do with that.
I think people need to create their own style. I would say explore and know our identities are created when we start creating them ourselves. I grew up in Long Island and saw the same kind of thing over and over again and then when I moved to the city and I branched out I got into the fashion industry and was like oh my gosh there's so much more to fashion and you can try all these different things. It's a form of expression so one day you might be feeling one way and the next another, and I would say have fun with that.
What are your fashion predictions for spring?
Do you have any Australian designers that you love?
I like Bassike clothes a lot because it's very much up my alley. And I love Toni Matičevski if you want to go even more elegant and chic - I love the structure! I wore this gorgeous dress for the David Jones campaign and it was just absolutely gorgeous.
You’ve recently taken a break from social media. What was the reason behind that decision?
The reason behind that was because I am doing so many things at the moment outside of modelling and it really needs my focus and my attention. I'm doing a forty-day yoga and meditation retreat, and I wanted to build back focus and get my mind right, and it helps a lot, I really enjoy it. I will say I'm very much out of the loop with things, I'll be back soon.
Would you recommend a social media detox to others?
I really would, yeah. I really would, because you start to be a little bit more present and not even a little bit, a lot more present.
Obviously, the Victoria’s Secret Show was a major part of your career journey. How does the news of the show’s reported cancellation feel?
It's not very surprising to me.
