And your guilty pleasure?
You’re a brand ambassador for the Cosmediclinic. What treatments are you a fan of?
I love the hair removal because it’s permanent. I have also started working on some sun-damaged skin on my shoulders and am beginning to see results. I really trust Dr Bui and his objective medical opinion. He guides me on how to fix what’s wrong, as well as enhance my natural attributes.
You’re always striving for something new in your career. Who’s your career idol?
Two female idols – Ita Buttrose and Helen Gurley Brown. Both are amazing editors and great role models for woman. They flew the flag for the modern woman, sexual freedom and beauty.
