Wishing everyone a happy holidays & very Merry Christmas.
Thank you all for a fabulous 2015… here’s to the New Year!
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….
With her quintessential Italian beauty and laid back Aussie charm we take a moment with model muse, Roberta Pecoraro, and get to know the girl behind the face. Family orientated and music mad, the laid back beauty shares her most loved possessions, love of coconut oil and what exciting things are on the horizon.
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?
- Black vintage Versace high wasted jeans
- Stansmith x ADIDAS sneakers
- Celine over the should handbag
- Customised Levi’s denim jacket
- Crisp white shirt
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!

Our wonderful Elouise Morris shines in the latest Summer 15 ModelCo Campaign so much so that ModelCo recently sat down with here to talk all things summer beauty….
What are your tips for feeling comfortable in front of a camera?
I’ve always felt quite comfortable in front of the camera. I like to clown around on set which creates a good vibe with the crew and if everyone’s happy, then I’m happy which makes the shoot run smoothly and I get the job done!
What is your own go-to summer beauty regime?
Plenty of time at the beach – it’s good for the soul which comes out through your skin, tinted moisturiser, peachy blush, lip balm, sea salt spray for tousled hair.
ModelCo Tip: For the perfect peach cheek flush, try ModelCo CREME ROUGE Cheek & Lips which provides a sheer, buildable colour that can be used on both cheeks and lips.
Three beauty essentials you can’t leave home without?
Hydration spray! I can’t live without it because it refreshes your skin and leaves a luminous glow, A good lippy, which can brighten your face instantly and tinted moisturiser. I can top it up whenever and it looks as though I’m not wearing anything.
ModelCo Tip: Carry ModelCo REPLENISHING ROSE MIST facial mist in your beach/hand bag to keep skin hydration at the ready on these hot summer days.
What is your signature hairstyle?
I love texturised hair as mine is super straight, I usually spritz sea salt spray or dry shampoo to give it body and that sexy beach hair look!
When you’re not working, how do you like to unwind?
In summer, the beach, the ocean and sun are both so soothing, yoga/pilates, going for long walks beach or bush, cooking and hanging out with my pets.
Can you share any insider tips that you have picked up from makeup artists after all these hours spent sitting in the make up chair?
To prep and to prime the skin. I’m always learning new tricks and what products work best on my skin. Each makeup artist is totally different and I just take note of what they are doing so I can try to recreate my favourite looks.
What products are always in your makeup kit?
Hydration spray, primer, tinted moisturiser, concealer, blush/bronzer, mascara, earthy eye shadows, eyebrow gel and a good illuminator!
