When EKALA HUNTER spotted the WORLD SUPERMODEL AUSTRALIA competition on her friend’s Instagram, the novice model thought she’d give it a go. Little did she know, just a few months later she’d be jetting to SYDNEY for the finals with a chance of representing Australia in FIJI. It was the Byron Bay-born beauty’s first foray onto the catwalk so it’s no wonder she had a few butterflies to start with. “I was really nervous in the lead up to the competition” says the 23 year old, “but as soon as I got on the catwalk it was pure excitement”.

We caught up with this statuesque blonde for some style tips and get the inside scoop about her close encounter with a famous singer.
