Style Voyeur caught up with the beautiful new face of Telstra Perth Fashion Festival Resort + Swim Series, Miquela Vos for our latest installment of #5minwith photographed by Stef King.
Name: Miquela Grace Vos
Age: 17 years old
Hometown: Perth, Western Australia
Style Voyeur: What’s it like being Miquela Vos? It’s very fun to be me at the moment. I’m entering the last year of my schooling and planning what I will be doing after school. Summer’s here now which is my favourite time of the year so I will be spending heaps of time at the beach, out boating and by the pool, as soon as school finishes.
How did you get into modeling? When I was about 13 years old, Caroline from Vivien’s chased me down the street at Claremont Quarter in to a shop to ask if I would be interested in modeling. I was extremely excited and wanted to start straight away but my parents wanted me to wait a year and get good marks at school, which would determine whether I would start modeling.
Where do you want to be in 5 years? I would love to be traveling the world, exploring places I have never seen before. It would be a dream to model for big designer labels and walking in shows around the world, especially Paris! I would also like to continue my studies if possible, doing something involved with sports science and nutrition.
Where do you see yourself in ten years? Hopefully overseas pursuing modeling as far as I can. I would love to have my own business, either in Sydney or overseas somewhere too, but to be honest I’m not looking too far ahead in my life. I love just going with the flow and when new opportunities arise, I love seeing where they take me and how I can grow as a person.
A day in your life is? Very fun but busy! A normal day would consist of going to school all day where I hang out with my friends and concentrate on my studies. When I get home I either go to the gym or go to Pilates to keep fit and toned. After that, I study for a while and then I have some time to just relax and watch TV with my family.
What are a few of your favourite things? Absolutely love the beach and going out on the boat with friends and family. I have the biggest soft spot for honey (I got a honey jar for my birthday) and mangoes!
Do you follow any blogs? I follow a few but one that does stand out is @beautifuldestinations on instagram. It’s incredible to see all these amazing places around the world, it keeps me determined to keep fit and healthy and motivated with study so that hopefully modeling can take me to these magnificent places one day!
Describe your personal style? My style consists of my fab round sunglasses, a casual plain T or singlet, denim skirt or shorts and Birkenstocks. I just love my Birkenstocks.
Do you remember the first time you noticed fashion? Yes I sure do. I was obsessed with Vogue magazines and just loved looking at all the high fashion inside. I have probably around 20 Vogue magazines on my desk right now.
Do you look up to any models? LOVE Izabel Goulart, so fit and healthy and just an inspiration. Josephine Skriver is also an absolute babe. She seems so loving and down to earth.
Do you play netball? How long have you been doing it? I used to play a lot of netball, started in year 2. I loved playing with my friends and always rocking up and having a laugh but also working hard to build a strong team. Unfortunately due to injury and sickness, I have decided to give it a break this year so my body can recover but I will definitely return for trial U19’s State team next year.
What other hobbies do you have other than modeling? I love to scuba dive and explore Western Australia. I always go to new places around Perth and I always go up and down the coast on road trips with my best friend.
What inspires you? My parents inspire me. They always push me as far as they can so I can open up new and exciting opportunities.
What makes you uncomfortable? Those really weird situations in movies, just makes me feel so uncomfortable.
What qualities do you look for in a friend or lover? The best quality is when someone can just be him or herself around you and not hold back.
What do you love most about modeling? I love working with the incredible teams I am assigned to. Love working with amazing designers and creative teams. Every job I have ever been on has been so much fun in a unique way.
What is one of the funniest/ strangest things you have experienced whilst modeling? The funniest thing that I have experienced whilst modeling was when I was getting my hair done for a show. They couldn’t hold the low pony tail to tie tightly so the lady had to stand in front of me and hold the hair still but accidentally put her boob in my face for about 5 minutes. Was hilarious!
What are a few of your favourite Perth haunts? Grill’d, love a good burger. Also love Bib & Tucker at Leighton Beach.
What are a few of your beauty tips you can share with us? Always look after your hair, it can get so unhealthy so quickly. Treat your skin well, always moisturise. Less is best when it comes to make-up too 🙂
What do you do to stay in shape? I do loads of pilates, go to the gym and swim heaps.
What do you eat for breakfast? Normally I have greek yoghurt with frozen berries and 1/2 a cup of mixed nuts – then I load it up with honey.
What would you consider your greatest achievement to date? Being invited to attend a huge training camp with other states at the AIS Netball WA.
What do you think is the most important thing in life? My family. I wouldn’t be where I am without them.
You are the face of Telstra Perth Fashion Festival’s Resort + Swim Series, is that exciting? I still cannot believe it! I was extremely excited when I found out that I would be the face! I feel so privileged to be representing TPFF. Something I wasn’t expecting, that’s for sure!
