Mollie Miles

It wasn’t until modelĀ MOLLIE MILES decided to chop off her long, blonde locks that the jobs started rolling in. Since then, her career has taken flight. With her unique look, it’s no surprise she has been in demand from both designers and photographers, and you may have spotted her around town – she’s a favourite face for local brands CUPCAKE FASHION, PRINCESS POLLY and ANNA & RUTH.

We caught up with MOLLIE before she makes a move to the big smoke – she’s re-locating to Sydney next month to add to her already blossoming portfolio.

Mollie, tell me a bit about yourself.

I grew up on the Gold Coast, partly near the beach but also in the mountains. I also got to live on and off in the UK as my dad is English. I’m an only child but mum and dad regularly took in international students so there were always lots of people in the house. I’ve always had pets and been surrounded by animals and I remember counting 24 pets at one stage when I was living in the mountains.

How did you get into modelling?
Well I’ve always wanted to model, but last year I was lucky enough to be apart of Tyler Johnston’s runway show in Sydney at Hair Expo, and they asked me to cut all my hair off and dye it dark brown (at the time my hair was long and blonde). From there on in, the modelling took off.

Who have you modelled for?
I have worked with a range of designers, photographers and boutiques but one of my favourite jobs was last year when I modelled for the designer Gabriel Lee, at the “Wear your Heart” Charity Runway Show at Darling Harbour in Sydney . This was an opportunity to work with an amazing designer in an beautiful location and more importantly raised funds for charity.

What is the best part of modelling?
The best part would have to be meeting/working with all the inspiring, quirky and innovative individuals in the industry and working in a range of different locations. Also, being able to wear amazing and unique items of clothing that you dont get to wear every day (even though I would like to, hehe).

Are there any downsides?
If I’m going to be completely honest the downside would be the negative comments models get on their appearance eg. body shape and forgetting they are actually humans with a heart and feelings.

Where would you like your career to go?
I would one day love to be a recognised national and international model. Also I would like to develop into an successful business woman who can inspire other young models to achieve their goals with hard work and determination. Although you have to be a blank canvas for each client you work for, it is still most important to retain your individuality.

How would you describe a typical day in your life?
Managing my modelling, promoting myself, having a coffee, walking up Burleigh Hill with my dog, Princess Pookie.

How would you describe your style?
I have a colourful, quirky, unique style and like mismatching patterns, textures and accessories to make a comfy everyday outfit.

What should every woman have in their wardrobe?
Coat hangers

What would I find in your handbag?
Well I would always have strawberry field pink tic tacs, my phone, water and red lipstick.

What is your biggest fashion faux pas?
Wearing ugg boots in summer because my feet are always cold!

What is your favourite item in your wardrobe?
My red bowler hat, rainbow beanie and my vintage boots

What is the best style advice you have been given?
I seem to be given a lot of style advice, but to be honest, I find what works best is always dressing to your body shape and most of all being confident and comfortable

Finish these sentences:
I’m listening to…my cat meow

I’ve been told I look like…no one else.

When I’m not working I’m…watching cooking shows and cooking

In five years I hope to be…happy……and working my way up in the modelling industry.

In ten years I hope to be… an established successful model enjoying my life and career.
