:: Spotlight :: Model Profile - Georgia Gibbs

By: Carmine Pascuzzi

We were first introduced to the lovely Georgia Gibbs at the Miss Universe Australia finals in Melbourne in June 2014. Her bubbly and enthusiastic nature won us over despite not placing in the top few of the pageant. However, she is a star in our eyes. Georgia hails from Perth, Western Australia and she loves being involved in organisations, in particular The Cancer Council, which is a cause close to her heart.

A. My biggest beauty tips would have to be wearing sun screen and drinking water! As well as having a really good skin routine using as many natural products as possible, and having days of no make-up!

Q. Advice for young girls aspiring to be models?

A. My advice is you can do anything you put your mind to. Don't change because you feel like you should, and embrace what makes you different.

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

A. If the man drives a Ferrari and he spends much of his time ensuring it is well looked after, then he certainly should treat his lady like he does his car!

Q. Future ambitions?

A. I would love to finish my degree in Occupational Therapy, as well as see some more of the world, hopefully travel with modelling and discover what the industry is like outside Australia!

Achievements
I believe my two biggest achievements within the industry would have to be featuring on season 8 of Australia's Next Top Model and also being part of the Miss Universe Australia final in June 2014. These two experiences are significant because they aren't something everyone gets to experience, and they have certainly opened doors and opportunities for myself.
