Our Roberta is everywhere & we’re LOVING it, just recently she shot the AJE November & December Campaigns. Being their muse, Aje sat down with Roberta to get to know her a little more… Be prepared to fall in love with her as you read the below….
Where were you scouted?
I was scouted 3 years ago at Fashion Weekend by Chic at their scouting booth they have there each year.
What exciting things are on the horizon?
This coming January my boyfriend and I have booked a little trip to Tokyo. I’m super excited about traveling to a country with such a culture difference. It’ll also be winter over there so I’ll finally get to see snow!
What do you like most about Australian style?
The best thing about Australian style is how easy and casual day to day outfits can be. I love how sneakers have become a huge part of today’s fashion.
Last band you saw?
I can’t remember the last band I saw but I did go see Chet faker at the opera house not long ago. He would have to be my favourite artist, hands down!
What five favourite pieces in your wardrobe?
Do you collect anything?
My boyfriend tends to surprise me with deliveries of roses, where he always writes a cute little message. I’ve kept every single message from when we first started dating.
Best weird and wonderful Summertime beauty tip?
Coconut oil! It can be used for so many different purposes. To moisturise your body, it’s a natural and healthy product you can put in your hair, I also wear it as lip balm sometimes. It smells amazing too, so you can’t really go wrong!
How would you describe your stye?
I feel like my style changes day by day, it all depends on what mood I’m in. However I do feel like the majority of the time my style is quite tomboy…. ‘girl meets boy’
Most aspirational person/people?
My older sister. She is such a hard worker and through that has been so successful. As we have become older she has become my best friend, I can always count on her to be there for me.
Most treasured item?
A necklace my nonna has passed down to me. My nonna means the world to me and I wear this necklace everyday.
Favourite travel destination past and future?
Paris!! The last time I was there I was with my sister and we spent 5 weeks there. What’s not to love about the food, the characteristic streets, the shopping and the people are so lovely!
Who would be your top three people to invite to a dinner party?
It would have to be my boyfriend, my sister and her fiancé! They’re all big foodies who love a good feast. Never a dull moment when we get together.
What are you reading now?
‘Hippies in the city’ – all about living a holistic lifestyle.
Films that have inspired you?
I fell in love with the documentary ‘Dior and I’ it allows you to understand all the work and creativity that is involved in the art of couture. I hope to one day get the chance to walk in a show like Dior!
