WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST FASHION EXTRAVAGANCE? It seems to be a never-ending issue at the moment (haha). When I was admitted to Law [school] I did buy myself a Chanel bag. That was a moment.

WHAT’S THE MOST TERRIFYING THING YOU’VE EVER DONE? I would definitely say it was going on a national television show to risk it all to find love.

WHICH SHOE STYLE BEST SUMS YOU UP? Black, strappy, comfy (if there is such a thing) heels. Perfect for all occasions, reliable, fun, chic and hopefully timeless.

WHO IS YOUR FAVOURITE PERSON AND WHY? I don’t have a favourite but at the top of my list would be my crazy yet loving family and of course Tim. I would not be me without them.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE FASHION LOOK ON A GUY? A fresh crisp white linen shirt and chinos. Fitted to perfection.

WHAT’S THE MOST FUN THING YOUVE EVER DONE? The all-girls trips we had back in the day, from partying our way through the Greek Islands to dressing up for carnival in Trinidad and Tobago. Oh, the memories. #goodtimes

CAN YOU TELL US SOMETHING THAT WOULD SURPRISE US ABOUT YOU? I was a massive tomboy for a couple of years when I was younger. I’m pretty sure I’ve grown out of that phase.

WHAT’S YOUR BEST SELFIE ADVICE? Good lighting and a smile work every time. Say ‘cheese’.

WHAT STANDS OUT AS YOUR BIGGEST EVER FASHION FAIL MOMENT? Anything I wore from Hound Dog. I was killing it at the time…

WHAT’S TOP OF YOUR FASHION WISH-LIST FOR SUMMER? I am loving a jumpsuit that you can wear for any occasion, day or night. In summer I gravitate towards anything linen, floral or pastel. I am loving the Stevie Culotte Jumpsuit from Forever New at the moment and the Jemma Linen Stripe Jumpsuit. Such an easy, yet put-together outfit.


Heinrich’s jumpsuit picks: the Stevie Culotte Jumpsuit, now $90 and Jemma Linen Stripe Jumpsuit, $130

WHAT’S THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION ABOUT YOU? That I don’t work. You really can’t believe everything you read, or how some media sites depict my life. I work, believe me, and I work hard.

WHAT RELATED TO YOURSELF WOULD YOU LOVE TO DELETE FROM THE INTERNET? Articles about me that are completely and utterly false (see above – I’d start there).

WHAT TV-APPEARANCE TIP DO YOU WISH SOMEONE HAD TOLD YOU? Not to get lipstick on your teeth.

ANY FASHION ADVICE FOR SOMEONE ATTENDING THE POLO FOR THE FIRST TIME? It’s about a complete head-to-toe look, being on trend whilst being polo appropriate; so stick to the dress code. Oh, and remember no stilettos and no fascinators. A Polo look is quite different to a Races look.

CAN YOU REMEMBER THE LAST TIME YOU LOST YOUR TEMPER? When Tim didn’t listen to my fashion advice. He never does. Arghhh.

CAN YOU TELL US SOMETHING YOU COULDN’T LIVE WITHOUT? My family… they are life.

WHAT’S BEEN YOUR BIGGEST LIFE LESSON SO FAR? You are continually creating your reality, so don’t underestimate the power of thought.

WHAT’S YOUR SIGNATURE POLO LOOK THIS YEAR? Comfort is key, so I usually opt for block heels, light colours and a wide-brim hat to protect from the sun. I am not going to give too much away on what I will be wearing from Forever New for the Portsea Polo 2018. You will just have to stay tuned for the main event on January 13.
