WARNING:  This website is not about kale and mung beans nor gluten, dairy, sugar and chocolate free brownies. Although when it comes to brownies I don't discriminate.… it’s just that this [MODEL] and many others in this blog, have a wider appetite than just “conventional model food”.

If you are obsessed with food and interested in fashion, you've probably come to the right place! As a model it's kind of tough having a passion for something that has the power to crumble my career (mmmm, crumble.....) But I believe that with a healthy mind, body and appetite, I can indulge my love for food and enjoy a fun and rewarding career as a model.

Here I will give you a taste of my favourite (and not so favourite) food spots. As well as a behind the scenes peek into my modelling world and dish up some spicy conversations with the big guns in the food and fashion industry.

DISCLAIMER: No models became too fat in the making of this website.

Clearly there's no mistaking that Maddy King is a babe, however, her good looks and stunning figure don't only come down to a very, very fortunate dip in the gene pool. This gut specialist (I know it sounds a bit gross) also known as a Chi Nei Tsang, is all about finding your body's beauty from the inside. And while it's difficult to imagine a beautiful gut, just look at Maddy and that's all the proof you need.

Call me crazy but we waited 1 hour and 45 minutes for…….wait for it……..a sandwich. Well, a panini to be precise. After a pretty lazy start to the day we headed on over for a late lunch. Little did we know exactly how late it would be. Before we saw the name of the restaurant we saw the queue. Wrapping out around the side of the restaurant and down the street we were pretty confident we were in the right place. But how long could it take really?

When two of your friends start up their own brand of scarves there’s not much you wouldn’t do to support them. That includes modelling for their launch campaign wearing the silk scarves……….wearing only the silk scarves. It felt like the modern day Jack and Rose as he sketched her wearing only a necklace. Thankfully no one drowned at the end of this version though.

"Food MANIA in Tasmania."

When people ask me to name my favourite movies, my favourite songs, my favourite foods, my favourite designer, I often find it impossible. The more I see and the more I experience the more my tastes and preferences change. But ask me to name my favourite places and I guarantee in years to come, no matter how many places I get to visit in my lifetime, Tasmania will always be sitting pretty in my top three. What an incredible place it is.

MINI MORSEL CABRAMATTA PORK


[MINI MORSEL] Cabramatta Pork
SYDNEY
August 27th 2017


As a fully fledged, unwavering foodie I am ashamed and sorry to say that I have never ventured out to the Asian capital of Cabramatta. Until now. And all it took was for Georges to shoot an eight page fashion story for Elle, my sister-in-law and nephew to be visiting from the Gold Coast and enough time in the afternoon to catch a bus and two trains. But better late than never I guess.

Winding our way through Cabramatta we found Georges and his crew nestled away inside an Asian minimart making magic. Sat on a pile of jasmine scented white rice the model was dressed head to foot in designer get up whilst pouring a bag of prawn crackers into her mouth. Not usually a sight to be seen in Cabramatta. A stark contrast to the slightly grubby mish mash of the Asian capital.

As the guys packed up and called it a day, mine was just about to begin. And it started with a helping (or two) of pork. Georges pointed down a side alley. “Get yourself a portion of char sui pork and BBQ pork belly.” Don’t mind if I do. It was only 5pm and there was already a queue 9 people deep. Usually a good sign in my books. When it got to our turn we ordered what we had been told. The lady popped our pork into plastic containers before weighing it and telling us the price. We fumbled about in our purses pulling together our change. “That’s fine, that’s fine, that’s enough, enough.” She charged us $10 but would only accept eight then she continued to load our containers up with extra meat. Now if that’s not great service.

Before joining the rest of the group we couldn’t help but have a sneaky bite. The sticky sauce was sweet and smoky and the pork was rich in flavour and soft to chew. Did we have to go back and share the rest with everyone else? Yes, but not before we had our fair share.

BEHIND THE SCENES PHOTOSHOOT DOUBLE STANDARD PART THREE


FLORENCE Part Three [CAMPAIGN]

BEHIND THE SCENES PHOTOSHOOT DOUBLE STANDARD PART THREE


FLORENCE Part Three [CAMPAIGN]


“Going to the chapel and we’re gona get married. Going to the chapel of love.” And who knew that three years later I would actually be getting married in Florence with the man who was taking my photo. Funny how the world works. Interestingly enough it rained during this photo shoot as it did our wedding day. Maybe the world was trying to tell us something?

Thankfully that was the only similarity to our wedding. We tracked down the location of our shoot by simply driving around the beautifully, deserted countryside, winding up through narrow roads lined with bushes, trees, flowers, stone walls, wrought iron gates and the occasional wandering cat. On our way towards……..where ever it was we were going, Georges spotted a rose farm and like any good photographer he grabbed the opportunity at hand.

We pulled over to shoot our first shot smack bang in the middle of a rose bush. Clearly not ready for the occasion I got dressed in the back of the van before diving head first into the leaves, thorns and petals. Turned out to be the best photo of the day and it smelt pretty blooming (get it?) good too.

"Rain, hail or SHINE."

We eventually stumbled across a little chapel, which made for the perfect backdrop to the very pretty and romantic dresses we were shooting. Now looking at the photos you would never tell that it was absolutely bloody freezing. I mean, it’s Florence!!! It shouldn’t be cold! Oh but it was and getting colder by the second; and then it began to rain.

The client was adamant that we keep shooting as they stood wrapped up in their cosy, waterproof jackets and jumpers seeking shelter inside the van. It was easy for them to say but seeing as Georges and I were the ones being paid we couldn’t very well say no. But then it got to breaking point. The rain was coming down hard, my lips were turning blue and my teeth were chattering like a wind up toy. “Ok, we need to wrap this up now, she’s freezing. I’m not going to shoot anymore.” My hero!

The client finally gave in and decided today was not the day to give a model pneumonia. And on that happy note that sums up my three-part Florence series. In all seriousness though it was an incredible adventure, I got to explore one of the most beautiful cities and surroundings in the world and I got to eat pasta. And pasta makes everything ok.

Meet Miss Meg. Not many people have the face to pull off something quite as severe as a shaved head, however this doe eyed, neat nosed, pout lipped woman cut off her locks in a bid to shed herself both figuratively and literally and low and behold, a model was born. She quickly caught the attention of the fashion elite both in Australia and overseas and now she is definitely one to watch.

"I do SOLEMNLY and sincerely declare that the TESTIMONY I shall GIVE shall be the truth, the WHOLE truth and nothing but the TRUTH."

This is not a short post. In fact it's pretty bloody long. Try condensing a six year story of mental illness into a couple of paragraphs, it's quite impossible. So grab a cuppa and a bikkie and I invite you to read, and hopefully learn, about a very poignant time in my life. From the age 18 to 23 I battled with anorexia. An illness that is slowly coming out of the woodwork and being talked about more and more. Now I know talking about it is not going to cure it but it will at least help lift the taboo. So this is my contribution to the wider conversation. The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
