I like to splurge on jewellery. I like things made in thick gold that will last forever.
Classic. You can always find me in loafers, or black patent boots. Through the summer I like to mix it up. Whenever I’m in Europe I manage to find an outrageous pair of Italian slides (covered in pearls), which make their way into the mix.
The Simon Miller, Bonsai 30 nubuck bucket bag in tan; it has summer vacation written all over it.
Don’t over-do it. I think cool-casual trumps American-prom-queen any day.

Ha! I was so nervous, I spent the whole morning trying to nail a ‘barely there’ face of makeup. (In actual fact, you would need a brush to scrape off the seven layers of concealer I had piled on). It was disappointing to discover that castings last a total of five minutes, and those four hours of getting ready didn’t quite equate.
The most fun (and acceptable story to be published) was the weekend I sailed around the tiny islands off the coast of Hvar in Croatia. We pulled up at what looked a secluded island only to discover it was a nudist movement. We had walked 20 minutes across the Island to the only restaurant and there was no turning back, so we embraced an afternoon of nude Croatians and outdoor bathrooms with no walls.
Flying over the South Island of New Zealand in a helicopter. No one bothers to tell you that there are no doors on the chopper. It’s just you and a tiny seatbelt preventing you from plummeting thousands of feet.
Without sounding like every single other model that has ever answered this question: Victoria’s Secret or Vogue US (or both, if someone was feeling generous).

I can speak Croatian fluently and take adult-ballet lessons.
My father. He is the coolest salsa-dancing Croatian I know. We have the same taste in documentaries, and the man never fails to bring me a bottle of vintage Shiraz when he’s visiting (take note future guests).
Finding the right light. Get a shady-spot near direct sunlight and you’re golden or just get someone else to take it. Selfies give me anxiety.
“You’re cute, it must be your Cro-Asian* heritage.” I don’t think the man had ever taken a geography lesson in his life. *NB Croatia is in Europe – not Asia.
Polished. Throw those rubber thongs far, far away. A relaxed after-work look gets me every time.
That my name is “Izi Mundic” – it’s Izi Simundic. I have absolutely no idea why every call-sheet I have ever read has created me a new last name.

I never really lose my temper, however, I am incredibly passionate when I speak, so probably always sound like I’m yelling. (Think Penelope Cruz, in Vicky Cristina Barcelona.)
Lather yourself in expensive face cream at the duty-free counter before your flight, and if you’re really hardcore (and want to scare your fellow passengers) BYO an SKII sheet mask. You will look like the crazy man from Silence of the Lambs, but when you disembark you will look about two years younger.
I get on social media to post and get straight off. You will find me deep in the Bloomberg world news first thing in the morning.
Something in finance. I have an economics degree.
The time I cheated on my eyebrow-lady and ended up with thinner brows than Kate Moss in the 90’s. That was a tough one to bounce back from.
