Talk about girl crush! You’ve probably seen Kristina Mendonca flaunting her bronzed bod in an array of bikinis across Instagram this year. And who can blame her, she’s literally hot AF! We jumped at the chance to shoot thew new 9.0 SWIM collection with this babe, so we hopped on a plane to LA and headed straight to Venice Beach!
One thing we don’t know about Kristina Mendonca?
My middle name is Theadora and I have never had chicken pox!
Fave swim piece from the shoot?
Oooo fav swim piece is a hard one. I would have to say the white robbed and the cut out black one piece. Sorry it’s too hard to just say one!!! They are all so good. (My fav collection of 9.0 so far)
What you wanted to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a porn star! Hahahaha kidding! I always wanted to be an actress, just so I could meet Channing Tatum and Zac Efron 😂
What’s your favourite place in the world?
I haven’t explored many places yet! Australia will always be number one in my books. In Australia I️ would say definitely visit Newcastle (it’s my hometown) and Crescent Head (I’ve been there for a family holiday every year for the last 18 years)! However I do love the Maldives and how remote it is – one of the only places where I fully relax. I also feel like Bali is a place everyone has to go to at least once in their life! It is so beautiful there!
