Tamara turns model scout

Girlfriend - - FRONT PAGE - Tamara

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!
