Herald on Sunday - - ON THE TRAIL - By Ri­cardo Simich

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.
