The Carousel talks to Model, Actor & Influencer Zoe Cross.
How would you describe your style?
If you take Ziggy Stardust, a vintage café racer with a tropical ocean breeze and blend that in a juicer you will get yourself a Zoe cocktail. (Consume at your own risk)
As a model, it must be important to maintain a beauty regime. What’s your best kept secret?
I’ve never been good at keeping secrets. If there is a band I love, a book I’m enjoying or a café that makes a great smoothie I will make sure everyone knows about it. As for beauty regimes I stand by the basic and simple pillars of skin maintenance: Cleanse/Exfoliate/Tone/Moisturize.
Besides that I make sure I eat healthy foods (with a healthy amount of cheat days) and drink plenty of water.
In addition to modelling, you are trying your hand at acting. What’s been the biggest learning experience so far?
My acting coach Grant, who is a brilliant teacher, has spent weeks helping me drop my guard and embrace my vulnerabilities. It can be daunting for a person who rarely lets emotion get the best of her even when faced with stressful situations.
What tips can you give to any avid bloggers?
Create a style you believe in. Post regularly. Maintain quality. Content is king and most importantly, HAVE FUN!
Originating from the Gold Coast, the Winter chill in Sydney must come as a shock. What’s your wardrobe essential to beat the cold?
That all depends where I am. There are few things in this world that make me happier than wearing some warm tracksuit pants, curling up on the couch with a steaming cup of tea and watching David Attenborough. (I have a bit of a crush) Although, when I’m out of the house there is nothing quite as practical as a warm scarf to beat the cold.
What’s next for you?
A mix of acting, blogging, shooting and travelling. There is a big world out there and I want to see all of it.
