Do you miss home? Where is home?
I miss my mum, but I love traveling. Home is in New Zealand in my garden. Who is the last person you talked to? What did you talk about?
Who are you crushes?
I have a ‘crush’ on my boyfriend. I love dressing up and at home I always make flower crowns with flowers from my garden, but here in NY of course I cant. A few nights ago he came home with a rose crown for me. Now that the flowers have dried a bit it looks even cooler. He is pretty crush worthy (laughs).
What are your morning rituals?
Internationally I love Comme des Garson, Vivienne Westwood, Issey Miyake and Maison Martin Margiela a lot as designers. In New Zealand I would love to do a 27names campaign I love their clothes so much. Or a campaign for “The Caker’. Though I don’t even know if you can really do a ‘campaign’ for a cake shop? I really just want to get to try all her cakes in beautiful clothes being photographed. Its not technically fashion related but her cakes are all so beautiful (and delicious), I cant wait to get the cookbook she just published.
What magazine would you like to be in?
I would like to be in Dazed and Confused and I would like to be shot by Billy Kidd for Vogue. His work is beautiful.
What food to you miss most from home?
I miss my mums cooking, especially this desert she makes with stone fruit like plums, nectarines and peaches, red wine, cinnamon scrolls and star annis. Its so amazing and I miss sunday bunches with my friends at Dizengoff in Ponsonby. I have never had such amazing eggs in my life.
What do you think of America?
I love NY, its great, there is so much to do and the art galleries and museums are amazing. Its a very creative city I feel. Every day I check out this website called niftynyc to see whats going down.
Who is your best friend?
I have a few friends I am very, very close to, I couldn’t pick one.
What is the longest book you ever read?
I read excessively so I don’t know. I read a book called Shantaram in Tokyo that was huge. It’s a really good read. One of my favorite places to go in NY is the bookstore Barnes and Nobel in Union Square. I go there at least a few times a week to get a coffee, read and then wander round the markets they have in Union Square.
What do you like most about modeling?
I like that you can experience things a lot of people don’t get to experience. I have made a lot of wonderful friends and got to travel to some amazing places. That sounds like the typical model answer but basically getting paid to travel the world is pretty great most of the time.
