See page 12 for your chance to win an
autographed copy of “Chooks in Stillettos”
that’s not the case, its an hilarious
industry to be in.
“ The way I see it, models have no
excuse to be uneducated because
seriously, most of your time is spent
sitting around waiting for lighting, hair,
make up, setting up equipment...you
have so much time on your hands its
With the furore over recent
photoshop controversies, how does
Carolyn feel about the magazine covers
that readers see as being ‘unreal’?
“No model looks like they do in real
life when a photo comes out, and I don’t
understand why people say it isn’t real.
People are fully aware that the burger
they buy at the fast food restaurant will
look nothing like the one on the menu
board. That is acceptable. But as soon
as someone is ‘photo-shopped’ there is
outrage. I don’t understand it.
“I don’t like it when people bag
the modelling industry as the sole
cause for eating disorders, when the
responsibility should sometimes be
dealt with by parents. As a mother,
we need to educate our kids to get a
healthy attitude and be comfortable
with who they are. Even my kids look at
my photos and say ‘that’s not my mum’,
because they know the photos have
been touched up.
“I’m actually proud to be a normal
mum....my favourite item of clothing is
my ‘tracky dacks’. I don’t live in a perfect
world. Nobody does.
“I know people who are incredibly
glamorous, but others I know live in
jeans and wear no make up because
that’s what makes them comfortable.
Just be yourself. It would be a boring
world if we all looked like Angelina Jolie
“I once brought a shirt home from
a show that looked fabulous on the
catwalk, and gave it to my husband.
He hated it, he said he looked like a
canary. It made me realise that if you
buy clothes that don’t suit you as an
individual, it’s never going to work.
Unless you look like a coat hanger it
ruins the concept of what the designers
have done with the clothes, they aren’t
always designed for real people to wear.
“Being a model keeps me busy, but
being an author is so addictive, I love it.
The new book took about a year, and
I really locked myself away, I drove my
family mad. The hardest part for me was
working out what bits to leave out!
“I hate seeing photos of myself, but I
love the ones when it doesn’t look like
me. The one with all the wrinkles taken
out, no sun spots, no blemishes...but
I don’t look like that. I’m ok with my
wrinkles, like most women. I’d rather
not have them but I’ve earned them, it’s
who I am.
“Lucky for me, I’m just a wife and
mum who has done this job their whole
life, and don’t ask me how, but I’m still
successful at it. The work is still pouring
in, and I’ve worked hard at retaining my
anonymity. I don’t go to the opening of
an envelope, which over time has given
me some credibility.
“For me, the longevity I’ve had has
been due to people knowing my face,
but not my name.”
