:: Spotlight :: Model Profile - Claudia Rose

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Claudia Rose is a beautiful 19-year-old model from Melbourne, Australia. She does mostly glamour and bikini modelling, and came to notice recently through her entry to the MAXIM Australian Swimwear Model of the Year contest, where she was very unlucky not to have progressed to the National Final. She recently undertook a Q&A for us.

Q. What is your family background?

A. Indonesian/Irish

Q. Did you grow up in your early teens wanting to be a model?

A. It was always something I wanted to pursue either professionally or as a hobby.

Q. What have you discovered / learnt from the modelling scene?

A. I've learnt that the modelling industry is really competitive and really tiring. It takes a lot out of you. People underestimate how hard it really is. Believe it or not there is a lot more to it than just looking pretty in front of a camera.

Q. Career highlights to date?

A. Shooting for American Apparel and Zoo magazine are definitely some of the best highlights of my career so far.

Q. Favourite hobbies?

A. I'm a pretty down-to-earth girl so I just enjoy doing what every other average 19 year girl old does. But I like playing video games and hanging out with my friends.

Q. Favourite music?

A. House and hip hop music.

Q. Favourite films?

A. Saw, Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle, Cruel Intentions, The Inbetweeners, Kill Bill, Fast 5, Euro Trip, The Hangover, Blow. The list goes on.

Q. What is your fashion sense?

A. I couldn‘t say that I have one particular fashion sense but right now I really like the 'boho’ type look.

Q. Beauty tips?

A. Never sleep with your make-up on! Plus, St Ives Green Tea Scrub is God's gift!

Q. Advice for young girls aspiring to be models?

A. A lot of young girls never know where to begin in this industry or they give up after rejection. It's hard to break through. But my advice is to never give up and take every opportunity that comes your way.

Q. Do you think a man should treat a woman like he does his car?

A. You're asking me to compare a woman to a car? Haha just kidding. Well it depends how he treats his car. All I can say is men need to treat their women right.

Q. Favourite place visited?

A. I haven't been to many places but Gunnamatta beach is definitely on the list.

Q. Do you have a role model/s?

A. I don't really have a role model.

Q. People you've admired generally?

A. I admire Angelina Jolie. She's beautiful, humble and has a kind soul.

Q. Are there any issues that you feel strongly about and would like to briefly discuss?

A. There are a lot of issues that I'd like to discuss but I'm afraid I might start a debate with myself!

Q. Future ambitions?

A. Finish my degree and go international with my modelling career.
