A look behind the glamour and the Instagram filters.

We’ve all had those moments where we take a selfie and have that 30-second daydream that mayyybe we look good enough to be a model. Sadly, reality comes crashing down pretty quickly and we realise that just ain’t going to happen anytime soon. It never hurt anyone to dream though, right?

Keen to get a slice of the action, we thought we’d tap the minds of some up-and-coming models. Here's a look behind the glamour and the Instagram filters to see what life as a young model is really like.

My name is… Angel Allan I’m… 15 years old

I have been modelling for… Just over a year

I was discovered by… social media

My go-to outfit when I’m off duty is… boyfriend jeans/ripped shorts and loose tops

My favourite snack before a show is… almonds and fruit

If I weren’t a model, I would be… I'm still pretty indecisive on my future, I don't mind just going for the ride and seeing what happens! Although I have always had a bond with animals, so perhaps a career in wildlife 

My favourite TV show at the moment is… I find the crime shows like Criminal Minds and Law & Order pretty interesting 

My hidden talent is… I enjoy playing netball and keeping fit! It's not so much a talent, it's a lifestyle

My guilty pleasure is… food. Just in general! I love food way too much it's hard to control. But I do have a soft spot for puddings and pies 

My style icon is… I'm in love with Mimi Elashiry's chill, bohemian look and clothing. She has the most unique taste 

My fave thing about Adelaide is… cute little cafes. And the beaches!

The best place to shop in Adelaide is… I don't get to shop much in Adelaide as I live a few hours drive away, so I find that Rundle Mall is the hot spot

My fave cafe/restaurant is… I don't have a favourite cafe, but I love discovering new places

A beauty product I can’t live without… toner and moisturiser

The wardrobe staples I can’t go without are… jeans, crops and sweatpants

The best advice anyone has ever given me is… never stop being you

My most embarrassing model moment is… on one of my first shoots I had taken off my bra to wear a certain dress. When it came to change outfits, I forgot I wasn't wearing a bra

If I could have any superpower it would be… I think it would be pretty special to have the ability to heal people. It's really sad to see so much suffering in our world, especially when there's little that can be done

Gigi Hadid or Kendall Jenner… Gigi Hadid. She is my ultimate role model!

You can catch Angel on the runway at Adelaide Fashion Festival, October 22-25. Tickets are on sale now.
