The Cannes Life

When you’re offered an all inclusive free holiday it’s pretty normal to think, hang on this can’t be real. But it is.

Probably once of the best perks of modelling is this incredible opportunity to travel around the world with promoters. Hands down the best in the Business are Matteo Garzia and Alessandro Brioschi. Thanks to them I have partied to my hearts content in Cannes, Paris and Milan.

The best parties I have ever been to in my life were at Gotha nightclub during the Cannes Film festival. Our glasses were constantly flowing with Cristal and Dom Perignon, whilst we danced to live performances from Tyga, Busta Rymes, Trey Songz, Akon, Calvin Harris, Bob Sinclar. The list goes on and on.
Just see for yourself…

Even though we were hardly around during the day, we were always awake for the most beautiful sunrises. Take me back!

Whilst I was still doing my A-levels, I sent some photos to a couple agencies just to see how far I could get and hopefully take it further once I left school. I sent one email to a very established agency in New York and within an hour a very camp american man rang me. I don’t remember the conversation word for word but it went something like this: Continue reading
