Model Profile: Rhianon Stanford
Name(s) Rhianon Stanford
Place Of Birth Auckland, New Zealand
Home West Auckland, New Zealand, lived there my whole life. At the moment I’m living in Swanson up in the ranges, I’ve been there for years and it’s so beautiful.
Family I live with my mum dad and younger sister
Pets We have a goat named Tina who I’ve had for years and years, chickens, 2 cats called Smokey and Jimmy, Jimmy’s a bit of a skitz, a couple of fish and a rabbit
Habit I zone out way too often, usually when something important is happening or I’m being told something I have to remember. And I’m a smoker, hopefully going to quit soon
Hobby At the moment I don’t really have a hobby, I suppose modeling is the closest thing I have to one
Modeling I was discovered when I was 14 at Girl’s Day Out by August Models, I signed with them when I was 15
Agency(s) In New Zealand I’m with KHM, in Melbourne in with GIANT, in New York I’m with TRUMP, at the moment we’re trying to get me signed to agencies in Europe and Sydney
Countries Visited I’ve been to Melbourne and New York for modeling, really hoping to move to New York one day it’s amazing. And on a family holiday I’ve been to Thailand which was also sick.
Beauty M.a.c everything, they’re so trusty
Hair I’m hopefully going white blonde in a few weeks, not sure how it’ll look, but I like change
Perfume DKNY delicious night, I’ve been using it for years, never gets old
Tattoo I have 3, I love getting them, once you start you cant stop, but its no good for this industry, I have a cross tattoo on my hip that I got when I was 16, a purpleish feather behind my ear and I got a pink jellyfish tattooed under my arm wile I was in New York
Fashion I like everything, I mix and match a lot depending on the day, I don’t usually wear the same style two days in a row. My main staple items are my black skinnies from Urban Outfitters and my trusty Chuck Taylors
Day Outfit Jeans, shirt, chucks, jumper, pretty basic but I get dressed up enough with my job that I don’t really feel the need to, I like comfy clothes
Night Outfit Same as the day! Haha, I don’t really bother dressing up too much unless it’s for a special occasion, just jeans shirt and MAYBE heels.
Food Anything and everything except beans, coriander and spice, I can not handle spice what so ever
Store Toys are us in New York, amazing! So many things to see and play with haha
Place The beach up north
Music I don’t have a band in particular, I like bassey music but I’m not fussy
Ideal Evening/Date This is a hard one, I’m a hopeless romantic haha, I think going on a road trip would be the idea date, some where far away with everything you would need then pitching a tent near a beach and chilling out
To Relax/De-stress I’m an emotional eater, so when I’m happy I reward myself with food, when I’m sad I comfort myself with food also, very bad habit. Or having a ciggy, lets you just sit back and focus on one thing.
Photo Shoots I like photo shoots, watching how make up can transform a look and I love seeing the final product once its printed, it’s a rewarding feeling, actually being able to see the work and knowing how much effort everyone put into it to make it look how it does, there’s a lot of pressure though, having to get It right and not letting anyone down
Embarrassing Moment Too many to write! But I always find myself in the situation of forgetting people’s names when it’s most important
Nerve Wracking Moment When I fell of a skate board going down a huge hill years ago, I was convinced I was going to die haha, I bailed pretty bad and still have scars to prove it
Person to Work With Caitlin Lomax, she’s a friend of mine and I’ve always wanted to do a shoot with her but never had a chance! She’s so lovely and I think it’d be a lot of fun
Inspiration Other models inspire me, I see how well they’re doing for themselves and I want to be where they are, doing big jobs that they do only better haha
