Its 8am and Rael has been up since 4am to catch an early morning flight from Auckland to Tauranga, yet she looks as fresh as a daisy and ready to concur todays photoshoot. Rael Wright is the latest beauty to showcase our latest ‘Uniquely You’ collection, so we thought we’d ask her a few questions while the lovely Desiree Osterman makes the finishing touches on her beautiful hair and make-up.
Tell us a little bit about life before modelling
I grew up in Whangarei, New Zealand and attended Whangarei Girls High School. From a young age, modelling was in my blood. At 3 years of age my mum put me forward into a casting call to be a toadstool, which I was selected for and have been hooked ever since. After High School I decided to move to Auckland and put all my focus and effort in modelling, which has been incredible.
What’s some of your goals for modelling in the future?
When I was 20 I entered a model search and have been picked up by an agency in Manly, Sydney which I am super excited about. My plan is to live there and put as much of my time and effort into modelling as I can. I’m lucky enough to have friends and family there, so hopefully the move isn’t too hard.
What’s your favourite piece of clothing at the moment?
I recently went to Cochella and was lucky enough to spend a couple of weeks in LA. I absolutely love vintage op shops and LA has heaps of them! I scored a Burberry jacket and scarf for a steal which is now my favourite item of clothing!
Lust by Lush (Fresh Handmade Cosmetics)
I have an amazing group of friends and family, that I love hanging out with! I’ll definitely miss them while I’m in Sydney.
