There seems to being something in the water here in Adelaide, which is crafting immaculately beautiful and long limbed specimens; something local Adelaide modelling agency Azalea Models is taking full advantage of it.
Last week we discovered that Kate Cameron-Smith from Azalea had been signed with powerhouse IMG Models, only to discover another Adelaide beauty from Azalea Models has just joined the modelling elite.
Standing gracefully at 172cm, with deep fudge brown eyes and pure milky skin, Beck Hume is the picture of youthful beauty. Discovered only weeks ago at the Adelaide Fashion Festival by Azalea Models co-founder Stacey Hendrickson, theres no doubt this local beauty is destined for great success. RADL caught up with Beck Humes for her first ever interview to discuss her exciting catapult into the world of modelling.
You’re the newest Adelaide beauty to be signed with IMG Models. What was your reaction when you found out you were signed with the biggest and most successful modelling agency in the world?
It was really surprising at first. Walking into a room and people knowing you, and you haven't meet them before. But the people at IMG are so amazing and really nice so you get used to it.
How were you discovered by Azalea models?
I was at the Adelaide Fashion week parade with my friend and we were just leaving and I feel this tap on my shoulder, I turn around and I see Stacey standing there and she says to me, 'Have you ever modelled before?' And I said 'no'. She gave me a card and told me to email her and it all went from there.
What is your favourite thing about modelling?
That you get to be yourself and show what you have to offer.
Have you always wanted to be a model?
My friends always told me that I should be a model, but I didn't really believe them. But when Stacey came to me I believed them.
You are such a striking beauty! Tell us a bit about your background?
I remember people asking me if I had some Greek or Brazilian in me but surprisingly I'm English, Irish and Scottish.
Who are some of your favourite models and why?
I really like Naomi Campbell. She is amazing and such an inspiration. She is really smart as well and was a judge on The Face. I watched her on that and watching her help the future models into the business was just amazing.
Where do you hope to take your modelling career?
I hope for the future that I just have fun with everything and make sure that I'm comfortable in what I am doing, but of course there has to a business side of things.
What is your favourite thing about being represented by Azalea models?
Azalea is one of the best and most amazing modelling agencies in Adelaide so it is just awesome. They are all so nice and welcoming it feels like a second home.
