Bushwalk with ELLE Netherlands

May 10, 2017

Back in January I booked a job with ELLE Netherlands which we shot just outside of Cape Town by an adorable little cabin down by a lake.

I love being part of the ELLE family, no matter where I go in the world I tend to book an ELLE editorial/cover – from ELLE Uk to ELLE Russia – and it feels a total honour. Plus the ladies who work for ELLE are always such sweethearts and an absolute dream to work with! (I swear it’s part of their job description to be such hunnies.)

If you feel like a peek here’s a little behind the scenes video shot by Laurens Hulshof.

The styling of the story focused on safari chic, roughed up headbands, dainty gold jewels and a collection of earthy hues and subtle prints. Sandra kept the hair and make-up on the natural side of things with no foundation and just a slight addition of bronzer and tasseled hair a.k.a Miss Kate Moss.

If there’s just one item I could keep from this shoot it would definitely go to the Celine dress below. The most incredible fit with beautiful cut-out back details.

Have a beautiful day my lovelies and remember to smile 🙂

Louis Vuitton x ELLE Finland

August 9, 2016

I’m not going to beat around the bush and pretend to be all coy and cool about the fact that I’m an ELLE cover girl… because it’s freaking awesome and I totally freaked out when I found out!

I’ve been modelling for just over seven years now (gosh how time flies) and I don’t think seeing yourself on a cover ever becomes normal. Or maybe I’m just a total nerd. Either way I’m so incredibly grateful to the team for making it possible.

On another note here’s me in the latest Finish ELLE acting all smooth and cool (well trying to…) in head-to-toe denim and a muscle car to die for.

Clean Slate with Marie Claire

September 15, 2015


I was chosen along with other local models, Alexa Corlett and Tana Boshoff, for Marie Claire’s September issue where they featured eleven new face’s of the season.

The editorial focuses on “embracing the modern movement of natural, effortless beauty” to the point that we weren’t even wearing base, all beautifully styled head-to-toe in white.

Below I’ve compiled a “get the look” with stoppable links. Lust over the Chanel and shop from Clinique 😉
