Model Profile: Emily Smith
Name(s) Emily Rebecca Smith
Place Of Birth Auckland! North Shore Hospital.
Home Devonport. I lived in Seattle when I was younger but came back to Devo when I was five. I love it here, its very safe and can be a bit boring at times but I'm near all my friends! Summer is perfect.
Family There's four of us, me, mum, dad and my little brother! He's 10 so there's a bit of a big age difference between us, I"m kind of like his second mum.
Pets A cat called Tessy Tiger who hates me and everyone around her. She's depressed its quite sad, and I have a bearded dragon called Phoenix. He's the love of my life.
Habit Biting my nails, and taking ages to get out of the car.
Hobby I like to do kickboxing, and playing with Pheeny (Phoenix)
Modeling I was scouted when I was 13 at the supermarket! I was a bit freaked out in the beginning because I didn't think the guy was for real, but thankfully he was!
Agency(s) Clyne Model Management
Countries Visited With modeling none yet :( New York is on the cards! But just with traveling, Japan, Hawaii, Australia, Fiji, and I used to live in Seattle when I was young.
Beauty Products I can't remember the name, but it's mascara from Mecca and it's AMAZING. I wear it religiously everyday. And MAC strobe cream, it makes you literally glow.
Hair Moroccan Oil
Perfume Flower Bomb by Viktor&Rolf. It's soo good.
Fashion I love lots of the clothes from nastygal.com! They use awesome models. I spend all my money on that website.
Day Outfit If its cold I love my high waisted jeans and a singlet or blouse. Or in summer I like summery dresses and high waisted shorts!
Night Outfit I like to dress up at night so maybe just a fitted dress and some little ankle boots.
Tattoos. Me and my five best friends got smiley faces on the bottom of our big toes, they were so cute. They're gone now though!
Breakfast Bacon and maple syrup.
Food All things seafood, cockles and muscles are my life.
Store The Candyman in Devonport. So many goodies.
Place Waiheke at my bach, or Wanaka on the lake!
Music Fleetwood Mac
Ideal Evening/Date A yum dinner some where fun like Daikoku where they cook the food in front of you.
To Relax/De-stress A swim or spa is the best, also a good talk with my friends is always a nice way to de-stress.
Photo Shoots My first photo shoot I think was for this small magazine called Stella, I had to dress up as like a princess or something and hold a ginger bread man? It was quite strange and I had no idea what to do! I prefer shoots over runway I think, theres less pressure, I like how you get to be a different person on shoots. It's fun.
Runway I like runway, you get a bit of a rush its cool! My favourite show would probably by Stolen Girlfriends Club, they always do the coolest stuff. We did one in a supermarket it was awesome.
Embarrassing Moment I was casting for a horse riding job and we had to pretend to be calling a horse or something, I ended up pretending to ride an invisible horse and went a bit crazy.. I didn't get that job.
Nerve Wracking Moment Before a big show, especially if your shoes don't fit or your outfit is hard to walk in! You just have to grin and bear it.
Person to Work With I got to work with my good friend Kendall the other day, it was so much fun we were shooting at Piha and we just talked and hung out pretty much! She's a lot of fun to work with. Also Steve Tilley the photographer! Our shoots together definitely got me more noticed and he's a lot of fun!
Inspiration I love reading Vogue magazines and seeing all the famous models and amazing photographers, I would love to do that. Those magazines definitely inspire me to try more! Also my mum is a big inspiration, she always pushes me to go forward! Emily Baker and Jessica Clarke are also super inspirational, they're two young Kiwi girls taking over the modeling world, its awesome.
