We Are Models
A Day in The Life of…
We chatted to boohoo babe and model Roxy Horner on her job, style and how to get into the industry…
Describe your typical working day in three words
Fun, creative, social.
My favourite thing about my job is that
There are loads of things! I love meeting new people on the shoots and all the travelling, but the best part is trying on loads of different clothes that you may never have tried before –that way I get to know what's coming out in in store before most people.
How did you get into modelling?
My parents took me to an agency before I left school, I went full time pretty much as soon as I'd finished.
“I secretly wanted to be in front of the camera”
If you weren’t modelling what would you want to be doing?
Probably film production or something in that line. I studied "moving image" at college which involved creating and writing movie ideas, filming and producing them. But I secretly wanted to be in front of the camera too! And look what happened!
My go-to outfit is…
A simple pair of tight high waisted jeans with a loose T shirt tucked in, normally with a shirt over the top undone or around my waist- always with heels or high heel trainers.
The one piece I couldn’t live without in my wardrobe is…
A plain black T shirt
“I like to explore!”
Favourite thing to do outside of modelling?
I like to explore! Going to new places I haven't been before; I try to do this every weekend if I can! I also love writing songs when I'm on long commutes/journeys.
What are your beauty essentials to keep looking fresh?
Before going to sleep (after cleansing) I slap on lots of moisturiser, a natural one without any perfumes or bad additives. I find it helps to ensure smooth fresh skin in the mornings.
Who are your modelling inspirations?
Kate Moss is always someone I've admired.
What’s the best advice you’ve been given?
Look into the camera and think of someone - that emotion comes out in pictures whether it's someone you don't like or someone you love. But most of all be confident in you, no matter what.
Any tips of getting into the modelling industry?
I would say if you are tall enough and look after your skin then go for it, walk into every agency with confidence and a bubbly personality until they say yes! Don't let rejection get you down because sometimes agencies just have someone else who looks similar to you on their books but that's not to say in a years time you may be just what they are looking for.
