SA­MAN­THA HAR­RIS FOUND her way to fashion as a na­tional fi­nal­ist in a magazine model search in 2004, but it was a few years be­fore she felt com­fort­able in the role.

“Work­ing with dif­fer­ent pho­tog­ra­phers is not easy when you are in your mid-teens,” she says. “At 19, with sev­eral shoots un­der my belt, I started to think, ‘I’ve got this.’”

She now hopes to fol­low in the foot­steps of one of our big­gest ex­ports – Elle Macpherson.

“She’s had a long ca­reer and an un­con­ven­tional ap­proach to what a model can do. She’s de­vel­oped her own busi­ness and was one of the first mod­els to be ap­pointed a brand am­bas­sador – and she is still stun­ningly beau­ti­ful.”
