Name: Jordan Barrett
Place of birth: I was born on the Gold Coast, in Queensland
Star sign: Sagittarius
Where are you right now: It all depends on what shoot I am doing or how busy it is at the time, I have actually just arrived back home to the Gold Coast yesterday after being in Sydney for three weeks over Fashion week.
Social media: Yes you can always find me using Instagram and Twitter my username is @jordabarrett feel free to follow me.
Your start in modelling: I was scouted in my local grocery store on the Gold Coast by a man named Kirk Blake who has been in the industry for years. We organised to take some pictures and within days I was boarding a plane to sign!
Your best job so far: I loved shooting the Kevin Murphy campaign spaced over a couple of weeks throughout New Zealand and on Piha Beach, there are no other beaches like it and it was a great experience!
Do your friends pay you out for being a model: Even I got a laugh out of it at first, we all did. I mean some of the clothes you have to wear can be pretty out there but its great fun and they would all do it if they had the chance.
Most awkward thing you have had to do on the job: A lot of what you have to do can get awkward but you just need to go with it, its all fun in the end.
Does your mum collect photos of you: Yes she’s one of those mums, always constantly asking for magazine names or when she can get a copy! She’s happy for me I guess and it’s good because I can never keep track.
If you weren’t modelling, what would you be doing: oh, that’s a tricky one I’m not entirely sure probably spending a lot more time at the beach!
Coolest photographer you have worked with: That’s a hard one! I would have to say Christopher Ferguson or Georges Antoni their both amazing photographers and really great guys, its good I get to work with people I really like and can have a laugh with!
Most hilarious piece of clothing you have had to wear: Ah you have to wear some pretty crazy gear, I find most of the time it can be more hilarious what gets done to my hair, rather than then the clothes I am wearing.
The latest edition to your wardrobe: Hmm. I just finished doing some shopping in Sydney before I got back, latest edition would be just denim coat from American Apparel.
We will never see you wearing: I wear everything. If I had to say something it would be a pair of Crocs they make me laugh every time. Horrible..
The most treasured item in your wardrobe: ah, I have countless amounts of shoes, far to many pairs.
Signature scent: I can’t go without a spray of ‘Paco Rabannes’ One Million gold bar. I love how fresh and clean it smells! Try it
Signature drink: CoCo Water is a necessity!
Favourite film: Can’t beat the movie ‘Hostages’ I love thrillers and a film that can keep me on the edge of my seat!
Currently listening to: At the moment obsessed with a song called ‘Global Concepts’ by Robert Delong, really catchy!
Fav holiday destination: Anywhere is great if your on a holiday but defiantly Bora Bora, its seriously amazing I think everybody knows that!
Currently obsessed with: Girls, Moonshine and the GC’s beaches!
If you were invisible: I cant even think of what I would do, I would clean out James Packers house and live on his boat!
What actor would you choose to play yourself in a movie: Rebel Elizabeth Wilson would be great at the job..
Something people don’t know about you: A secret… I’m always snooping on peoples instagram I’m obsessed with insta!
