Honourary Kiwi model Stella Maxwell has just shown up on models.com as their latest Model of the Week. That’s a pretty big deal. Basically every famous model that you can think of began their career with a Model of the Week nod from models.com. And as far as I’m aware, the only other New Zealander to ever make it on there was Nick Bryant back in 2003. But I’m still holding out hope for Michael Whittaker.
Check out her Model of the Week Q&A below (she gives shout outs to her mother agent Ali McD, Dunedin and her Wellington based designer friend Sophie Burrowes), and make sure you grab a copy of the new Pilot Magazine when it comes out to read the interview I did with her.
