Model Citizen: Grace Simmons

Fresh face alert!! I love hearing about new Australian talents getting out there into the worldwide fashion scene and today the news is all about 17-year old Queenslander Grace Simmons.

The willowy 5ft11in teenager breezed across the runway at Dior Haute Couture like she’d done it a thousand times before (I didn’t actually see the show of course, I’m not cool enough for that yet! But imagine so), in front of Hollywood icons like Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron and Marion Cotillard.  Grace was first discovered through the Girlfriend magazine Model Search for 2012, giving her a start in the modeling career. She told the Daily Mail Australia: “Walking in Dior Haute Couture show was an absolute dream come true. I’d come to Paris with the intention of merely experiencing Haute Couture Week and learning all I could, so to be cast in one of the biggest and most prestigious shows of the week is something I’ll never forget”. Simmons has signed onto Next Model Management in New York, Paris, London, and Milan, Bravo Models in Japan and Chic Model Management here in Australia.

Like all of us she too had issues with the way she looked, admitting in the article that she used to hate her red hair the most but admits to loving it now. Let’s hope we see so much more of Grace in the upcoming fashion weeks and maybe even the face of a campaign!

Congrats Grace!
