Model - Simone Kerr
What inspires you?
Passion for anything. Honestly caring about a cause.
What are a few of your favourite things?
This morning it was my electric blanket. Generally I like ballet, vintage and antique shopping, cheesecake, live music and my cat (except when half his white fur coat is on my black Burberry coat).
What do you love most about modeling?
Travel and creativity.
What is one of the funniest/strangest things you have experienced whilst modeling?
Being stung by a deadly jellyfish while on location on the remote beach White Haven with Nicole Trunfio and the Grazia UK crew. Nicole made me a shelter out of sticks while we waited for the helicopter to take me to hospital and a photographer’s assistant pee’d on my foot. (Note: peeing on a jellyfish sting doesn’t work).At a L’Wren Scott fitting Mick Jagger teased me because of my tiny bum and L’Wren sewed chicken fillets (usually reserved for filling out bras) into some knickers for me to wear with a couture gown.
Both events strange and funny in equal measure.
What do you do when you’re not modeling?
I’m at UWA studying or working on my own dance wear label Balletto Body. I design all the pieces, personally package the orders and write every customer a hand written note inside the box. It’s time consuming, I can be up late into the night making sure everyone has a personalised note but it’s really important to me.
What would you consider your greatest achievement to date?
Having the courage to commit to starting my own business venture and stamp my name all over it.
What is something you would tell your younger self?
Stop exfoliating! And stop worrying.
