Bieber’s ex set to walk for NZ Fashion Week
A number of high-profile names will walk the runways of the rag trade extravaganza.
She’s no stranger to being on Justin Bieber’s arm — and now Australian model Bronte Blampied is set to strut her stuff on the New Zealand Fashion Week catwalk.
Blampied has been regularly snapped with Bieber since early last year.
She has been widely reported as his exgirlfriend, but the couple caught up in Sydney during Bieber’s tour Downunder in May.
Blampied arrives in New
Zealand on Tuesday and has been booked to model in six shows during Fashion Week, which starts tomorrow.
She won’t be the only international model on display.
Manon Buchalet, who is from France but based in
Sydney, has signed on.
Away from the catwalk she is dating Home and Away star George Mason.
A host of highly rated Kiwi models will be on the catwalk, including Boston Ridge, the son of Sally and Matthew Ridge.
Some of New Zealand’s top rugby talent will also be strutting their stuff.
Ardie Savea and Sam Cane are in a tense battle for the treasured No. 7 jersey in the All Blacks.
And the duo will also be battling for bragging rights when they take part in the Jockey fashion event on Friday night. A host of rugby players and their partners will be front row for that show.
Musician Anika Moa will make an appearance, singing at the Mum and Kids Show on Sunday.
It is understood highprofile Kiwis set to take front row seats include Toni Street, Jack Tame, Nikki Kaye, Jacinda Ardern, Antonia Prebble, Phil Goff and Mike Hosking.
