Are you ok working with animals?
We asked as we put a loudly bleating baby goat on Vi’s lap, a rabbit double kicks her stomach and we watch the lead rope trail away in the grass as Geoffrey walked firmly AWAY from his best lighting...
We asked Vi about her career highlights, how she unwinds and her future goals, on the blog today.
Where are you from and where have you lived?
I was born in New Delhi and moved to Australia when I was 7 years old. Before my move to Australia, I lived in Mauritius and London. Since then I have always lived in Adelaide.
How did you start your modelling career?
I applied to a model search event that was hosted by my mother agency.
What was your highlight from our shoot day?
It would definitely be playing with the beautiful farm animals, especially the ducklings.
How do you take car of yourself while living the busy life of a model?
In the age of the Coronavirus Pandemic, it is crucial that I carry hand sanitiser with me everywhere. With frequent air travel interstate, I also keep sets of sanitising wipes to wipe down surfaces. For physical health, I have recently been loving reformer Pilates.
If I was a tourist coming to Adelaide, what spots would you recommend I visit?
I would say the food scene is amazing in Adelaide, I would highly recommend trying out Africola and Golden Boy. The newly opened Sol Bar and Restaurant has some amazing views and great drinks. For day trips I would recommend going to the beautiful wineries of Barossa. A picnic in the Mount Lofty Botanical Gardens is also a must.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I was recently gifted a ‘Paint by Numbers’ set, which is really therapeutic for me. I also just love to binge watch Netflix shows and read a nice book.
If the world was covid-free, where would you travel?
Pre-Covid, my plan was to travel to Europe for work, so I would most likely jet-off to Paris.
What has been your career highlight so far?
My first Vogue Editorial will always be special for me.
Your favourite thing about modelling?
I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. I think there should be a novel made about experiences and conversations on set.
