Name: Bridget Flint
Hometown: Perth, Western Australia
Style Voyeur: What’s it like being Bridget Flint? At the moment…It’s amazing. I feel like all the planets are lining up for me. I am presented with an incredible array of opportunities and I aim to make the most of all that is offered to me.
How did you get into modeling? My hairdresser asked me to be a hair model earlier this year, which is when I first thought maybe I could be a model… With all the support from my family and friends, I decided to send in some photos to Vivien’s Model Management. Since then it has been amazing!
Where do you want to be in 5 years? Traveling the world as either a dancer with a prestigious company or a supermodel on the cover of Vogue!
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Possibly at the peak of my career as a model or professional dancer. I see myself living overseas, maybe even designing my own label and creating beautiful things that express who I really am.
A Day in your life is? Busy! The usual day in my life…I wake up very early so I can mentally and physically prepare myself for a busy day ahead. I start off with half an hour of yoga, followed by a nutritious breakfast (breakfast is my favourite part of the day). I then set off for school where I combine study and ballet. Most ballet classes occur after the school day. I usually get home after 6pm, pretty tired and hungry. At night I regularly devote time to my skin and hair care for modeling – you never know when a casting or job may arise!
What do you eat for breakfast? My own homemade almond and hazelnut granola with my homemade macadamia milk, topped with whatever fruit I feel like, usually banana and pear.
What are a few of your favourite things? Downtime at home, cooking creative and nutritious meals for my friends and family, listening to music.
Do you follow any blogs, which ones? I personally follow very few blogs. However blogs that cover health and beauty, I love! livingprettynaturally.com is definitely one of my favourites.
Describe your personal style? My personal style is relaxed and understated with a touch of individuality. I love to dress myself to feel comfortable with how I feel and look.
Do you remember the very first time you noticed the world of fashion? When I was in primary school I adored Jennifer Hawkins. I remember searching through every newspaper and magazine to find her pictures and just admire them. I made collages of Jennifer wearing my favourite outfits. I guess that was the beginning of my intrigue with fashion and beauty. I also loved to create stylish outfits using paper fashions. It was an endless occupation for me to cut out beautiful pieces of miniature clothing using gorgeous patterned paper and coordinate them with meticulous attention to detail in my paper fashion journal. Art has always been a huge passion for me. Combining fashion design and make up was a wonderful creative outlet for me (growing up).
Do you look up to any models? My idol is Adriana Lima. She is everything I wish to be; confident, beautiful, fit and strong.
How long have you been doing ballet? My mother always says I could dance before I could walk. I have attended dance classes for 14 years, the last seven years have been ballet focused.
What inspires you? Performing, being on stage, having an audience and reaching my physical and mental potential is what most inspires me.
What makes you uncomfortable? Studying and exam pressure with its associated inactivity, really gets to me and I find it very stressful.
What qualities do you look for in a friend or lover? Humour, loyalty and laid back.
What do you love most about modeling? Feeling like a princess! I love getting my hair and make up done and meeting new people at every job/ photo shoot.
What is one of the funniest/ strangest things you have experienced so far whilst modeling? Going on location to the sand dunes, jumping on a trampoline all day with a 4:30am call time!
What are a few of your favourite Perth haunts? The Raw Kitchen in Fremantle, Solomons Cafe and Veggie Mama in Mt Lawley.
What are a few of your beauty tips you can share with us? Drink lots of water. Eat clean foods. Cleanse, tone and moisturise every day.
What do you do to stay in shape? Extensive training in contemporary and ballet keeps me very fit. I also like high-speed walks and runs in the great outdoors. I make sure I maintain my strength with pilates.
What would you consider to be your greatest achievement to date? Recently being accepted into the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts for ballet.
