During the course of 2011, over many industry gossip sessions with my girlfriends, I was amazed by how many straight girls seemed to have a crush on Viviens face Olivia Thornton. She seems to be the thinking woman's beauty! That said though, I'm sure the same spell is cast over the various men who cross her path! I spotted her for the first time in the flesh working it at the Jaime Lee runway show at Sydney Fashion Week, then enjoyed reading her model diary for Pedestrian TV.
Both of us are originally from Queensland, so when we managed to escape our various families over the silly season, we got together to take some pictures which I'm very happy with. I'm surprised she hasn't shot for Vogue or Harpers yet, but not surprised to discover that she's recently signed with DNA models in New York. 2012 will be your year Olivia - you are one very cool lady! A special thanks to Lauren McCowan for providing sensational hair and makeup as usual, and the uber lovely Sarah Birchley for styling! Make sure you follow all these talented babes on twitter - and add me while you're at it!
