Q&A WITH EMMA WAHLBERG




Back in May when I was volunteering for MBFWA, I met the stunning Emma at the Aje show, Swedish model and one of the sweetest girls! When she was in town for Fashion Week she walked in most of the shows including Ellery (eep), Zimmermann, Lisa Ho, Manning Cartell, Johanna Johnson, Watson X Watson... the list goes on. Her babe status has also landed her in the pages of Wonderland, Under The Influence, CLEO, Sunday Magazine and an exclusive for Fashion Gone Rogue. She has the most gorgeous porcelain skin, striking eyes and lush dark brunette hair and is currently signed to Chic Management in Australia. Even though she's on the other side of the world, I'm fortunate enough to still be in contact with her and she was lovely enough to agree to answering some questions! Here's what she had to say...

Oh My Gilded: Where are you right now?
Emma Wahlberg: Right now I'm in the middle of nowhere alone with my two dogs in my parents' cottage, my favourite place in the whole world.

OMG: How did you get into modelling?
EW: I sent my picture to an agency in Stockholm.

OMG: Where is your favourite place in the world that you've visited?
EW: No matter where I go in the world there is no place like home, but I still love the shopping in London.

OMG: If you weren't modelling, what would you be doing?
EW: There is so much I want to do, I would love working for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, or at an orphanage somewhere in Africa, or with tourists back home in Lapland, and much more.
 




OMG: What's the best thing about modelling?
EW: The people I meet.

OMG: What is the best advice you have been given?
EW: To not care about what people say about you and not to listen when people tell you to be a certain way.

OMG: Have you met any famous people? If yes, were you starstruck?

WILDFOX SWIM 2013



Cintia Dicker is the ultimate Bond girl for the latest Wildfox Swim campaign. She looks absolutely insane and suits the 60s styling so well! Her hair is so lush and her body... bangin'. As always, the campaign is cheeky, fun and beautifully photographed by none other than Mr Cobrasnake.

The collection ranges from flirty florals and pretty pinks to sultry blacks and figure-hugging onepieces, emphasising the sex appeal of Cintia's spy character. It also features an array of gorgeous dresses and cover-ups in light fabrics.

Kimberly Gordon, designer of Wildfox Couture, had this to say about the latest collection: 

“The new collection is inspired by a totally American girl who lives for traveling. She dreams of England and hotel rooms, she loves flowers and diamonds, and she loves decadence!  She’s a Bond Girl, a 60’s bombshell who dyes her hair all shades of colors and meets beautiful men everywhere she goes.  She wakes up at six in the morning to catch the sunrise and does laps in her giant, turquoise pool. She is always ready to pack her bags and fly to another country, stay in another hotel, she travels lightly, packs bikinis, sparkly dresses and beach cover ups. This girl always has her swimsuit in her purse or her glove compartment, she's always ready for her next big adventure, and she's always ready to make new friends... wherever she goes.”
