GET TO KNOW MELBOURNE BASED MODEL JAYLEE HUGHES

Jaylee really is as sweet as she looks! Get to know how this Melbourne beauty got into modelling and how she stays in shape. 

HOME TOWN?

Born and raised in Melbourne!

FAVOURITE TRAVEL DESTINATION?

I recently travelled to India and was blown away! The culture is so rich and the scenery like no place I've ever been, one day I was soaking up the sun on the beach and the next watching the sun rise over the snow-capped Himalayan mountains. Absolutely heavenly. 

BEST PIECE OF ADVICE FOR SOMEONE TRYING TO GET INTO THE MODELLING INDUSTRY?

Like any industry, determination is key! You’ve got to be willing to put yourself out there and step outside your comfort zone to stand out and connect with other people in the industry. But don’t forget, you’re unique in your own way and can’t be compared to anyone else!

HOW DID YOU GET INTO MODELLING?

An agent approached me at st. Kilda festival a few years ago, at the time I was very hesitant and quite young but I went for it and never looked back!

FAVOURITE WAY TO STAY IN SHAPE?

I can’t have a productive day without some form of physical activity in the morning, but I’m all about variety to avoid losing interest. Some days it’s Pilates, other days it’s a HIIT class or even a run along the beach on a cool morning. That always seems to revitalise my mind for the day ahead.

FAVOURITE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS TO FOLLOW?

@yasmin_suteja and @endlesslyloveclub give me major style envy, and @_so.very provides for all my vintage needs. But, there’s honestly too many to choose from!

GO TO OUTFIT?

Personally, I always opt for an oversized blazer paired with denim and some chunky sneakers for a comfortable and classic everyday look!

FAVOURITE NAKEDVICE PIECE?

The Christy side bag is the perfect accessory for that effortless, yet well put-together look that I love. It goes well with everything, whilst adding an extra bit of pizzazz!
