Tamara turns model scout
Gigi, Bella, Cara, Kendall, Karlie… These girls define the statement ‘not just a pretty face’. They’re smart, confident, stylish and work seriously hard. In fact, when you think about it, supermodels are actually kickass role models.
In July, I toured the country with the Girlfriend Priceline Pharmacy Model
Search to help discover Australia’s next generation of modelling It-girls, and maybe even find our answer to Cara. The ~iconic~ Sam Harris got her start through the comp back when she was 13, and we were lucky enough to have her join us as a special guest at the roadshows. It was pretty great having a legit supermodel there to direct your questions to (coz let’s face it, modelling is not my strong suit), and I know Sam was genuinely touched by the amount of girls who named her as their biggest inspiration. Together, we met over 1500 of you and IT. WAS. AMAZING. You are amazing! Hands down the best part of the whole experience was getting to know so many incredible GF readers and hearing all your individual stories.
And little did you know, I was taking notes the whole time… Here are just a few of the interesting facts I gathered from you, about you:
• Your most favourite celebrity is the divine Emma Watson (same)
• You love yourselves some eyeshadow, but highlighter comes a close second • YouTube is life – you’re obsessed with Shani Grimmond and spend a LOT of time watching the Dolan Twins (obvs) • You’re crazy talented at sports, singing, acting, styling, makeup, dance… AND SO MANY OTHER THINGS – you’re going to conquer the world!
Naming only six national finalists wasn’t easy, but we’re so excited to introduce you to our 2017 Model
Search line-up: Madelaine, Sameerah, Taylor, Jodie, Tamara-Kate and Nevaya. Check out the girls’ first ever photoshoot on page 70.
And I can’t wait to meet even more fresh faces next year!
