She’s smart, suc­cess­ful and in de­mand. Meet model and fit­flu­encer Bree War­ren

YYou know those piv­otal mo­ments that could take your life in a to­tally dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion? For Queens­lan­der Bree War­ren, that came when she turned her back on a promis­ing bas­ket­ball ca­reer to be­come a model. “The life of a pro­fes­sional ath­lete wasn’t for me,” Bree says of her de­ci­sion to swap col­lege in the US – where she could se­ri­ously pur­sue the sport – for a Euro­pean ad­ven­ture. It’s a de­ci­sion she doesn’t re­gret. She even­tu­ally moved to New York to work at 25, and has since landed jobs with ASOS, Revlon, Ralph Lau­ren and Garnier, as well as Aussie brands Lorna Jane and Tigerlily. But it was her sporty start that gave the in-de­mand model an edge and a 196K In­sta­gram fol­low­ing who love her glo­be­trot­ting surfer life­style. “There’s a mis­con­cep­tion that thin equals fit and that’s not en­tirely true. Fit bod­ies come in all builds, shapes and sizes,” says the 30-year-old. “It’s about em­brac­ing the body you have got, rather than wish­ing for some­thing you don’t have.” Here, she talks about go­ing against the grain, why pi­lates is her new bas­ket­ball and how she’s cre­ated her dream life.
