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… Kate Cameron-Smith I’m… 17 years old

I have been modelling for… two years 

I was scouted/discovered by… photogropher and family friend Kat Schultz took some photos of me and showed them to Stacey at Azalea [Kate's modelling agency] 

My go-to outfit when I’m off duty is… a baggy jumper and jeans 

My favourite snack before a show is… a smoothie 

If I weren’t a model, I would be… a graphic designer 

My favourite TV show at the moment is… Scream Queens 

My hidden talent is… tennis

My guilty pleasure is… pizza 

My style icon is… Rihanna 

My fave thing about Adelaide is… that it's a super small place in comparison to other cities so it's good in the sense that I can walk to the city from my house. The people are super lovely as well! 

The best place to shop in Adelaide is… Rundle Mall 

My fave cafe/restaurant is… Cafe Bello

A beauty product I can’t live without… Nude by Nature BB 5-in-1 Miracle Cream 

The wardrobe staples I can’t go without are… denim skirt and oversized jumpers 

The best advice anyone has ever given me is… find good in all things!

My most embarrassing model moment is… getting heat stroke and fainting on my first Azalea test shoot because it was a 40+ degree day

If I could have any superpower it would be… teleportation 

Gigi Hadid or Kendall Jenner… Gigi Hadid

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