Interview: Liz Braithwaite


Liz Braithwaite, Model  @lizbraithwaite_

BB recently had the chance to chat with the adorable Liz, star of our Autumn Lookbook.

BB: Thanks so much for taking the time to chat to us! How’s things?
L: No problem at all! Things are going great at the moment!

BB: So, you’re really well know for coming in the top three for Australia’s Next Top Model Cycle  7, but what’s something many people don’t know about you?

L: That’s a hard question haha. I’m pretty much exactly how I was on the show. I’m a big softy I will cry at the drop of a hat. Either good or bad haha. But one thing I think most people don’t know about me is that I have the worlds worst grammar, spelling and reading. I just never got it at school and when I talk I get my words jumbled up haha it’s kind of embarrassing but oh well haha.

BB: Did life change a lot for you following the running of ANTM?

L: It sure did. People knew who I was,  I was so quiet and kept to myself before the show and now people I don’t even know come up to me saying hey. It is seriously the weirdest thing ever. But not just the popularity was the change, it also helped alot with work. Like I wouldn’t be shooting for you guys if it wasn’t for the show 🙂 haha.

BB: You were proclaimed as Alex Perry’s favourite model from the Cycle 7 season. Can you tell us, does he actually ever wear those sunglasses?

L: Hahaha everyone asks me that. But no I never saw him wear them once. I admire him for doing that, he sticks to his look and doesn’t get peer pressured to change. That’s what I love about him.

BB: So, what’s your favourite T.V. show?

L: That’s a tough one. I’m one if those people that will never sit down and watch a show from beginning to end because I get carried away but the one show I absolutely love and record every week is Geordie shore! And no doubt when ANTM starts back up again I’ll be right into it!

BB: Have you seen the “Just waiting for a mate” Youtube video?

L: HAHAHA yes I love it! But don’t drink and drive! I’m so against it, because it’s not just your life in danger.

BB: What’s your thoughts on the 90s revival that’s taking charge of trends at the moment?

L: I love it, it’s so much fun and plus I can wear my mum’s awesome vintage clothes!

BB: Are you a cat or dog person?

L: Dogs all the way! Cats are cute but they kind of scare me haha and plus I’m allergic to them.

BB: What makes you laugh so much your tummy hurts?

L: Watching the YouTube videos of models falling on runways, fingers crossed i never appear on it haha.

BB: What is your fav snack?

L: Chia seeds soaked in water and lemon juice! I’m obsessed I love the texture and they are so filling and good for you at the same time.

BB: Do you have a theme song or motivational saying that peps you up before a big show, day or workout?

L: Not really I just like to think about my grandfather and how hard he tried to fight cancer and that gives me the inspiration and motivation to try my hardest, because I know how hard he tried.

BB: If you could meet any famous person, who would it be?

L: I would love to meet Oprah. She would be the best person to have a chat with haha.

BB: Ok, so hypothetical. You’re in a room with Joseph Gordon Levitt and Leonardo Di Caprio. You have to kiss one and punch the other (have to!!!)… go..

L: I’m going to go with kissing Joseph and punching Leo even tho I love them both sooooo much I wouldn’t be able to do that to poor little Joseph he has those puppy dog eyes haha.

BB: What’s your lazy Sunday afternoon activity?

L: Sitting in the sun reading a weeks worth of trashy mags haha nothing beats it.
