There’s no doubt about it, Georgia Gibbs’ star is on the rise. After finishing in the top six of the 2014 Miss Universe WA competition, this Perth born and raised beauty (she hails from the suburb of Wanneroo) has travelled the country in pursuit of her dreams.
Today, she’s signed to SCOOP MGMT in Sydney – not to mention various other agencies around the world – where she’s fast making a name for herself. We caught up with her in between the busyness of Fashion Week Australia and took a quick peek into her glamorous world…
What does a typical day in the life of Georgia Gibbs look like?
It really isn't that exciting. I wake up, work out (I love working out in the morning), grab a coffee followed by breakfast, work all day, and then prep for the next day when I get home. I usually eat YouFoodz for dinner so I don't have to cook – the meals are quick and healthy and save me so much time.
What has been your favourite shoot so far?
It has to be a swim campaign I shot in Bali. We worked for one day and spent the rest on a mini holiday!
What do you love most about your job?
I love that it's a challenge every day, that every day is different and that I'm surrounded by new people all the time.
How long have you been an Elixr member?
For almost a year – since I moved to Sydney from Melbourne.
How many times a week do you work out?
I try and work out 4–5 times a week, depending on my work schedule. That said, I believe the key to a healthy body is 60% what you're feeding it.
Which class do you enjoy most and why?
Pilates Reformer – it's the reason I joined Elixr in the first place. Nothing works my core and glutes more, but I somehow leave the class feeling refreshed and relaxed, too.
How do you stay motivated during winter?
Regardless of season, I think letting your hair down over the weekend contributes to a healthy mindset during the week. And by letting your hair down, I mean eating whatever you want to, only working out if you feel like it, having a glass or two of wine and enjoying good company. Life's definitely too short to be strict all the time.
What's your favourite way to boost your mood?
Beyoncé workout playlist, always.
How do you spend your time when you’re not working?
Exploring! I love a new adventure, whether it's going for a drive out of the city or a weekend trip away.
Any exciting travel plans for 2016?
I'm off to NYC in a few weeks and then head to Europe for work for six weeks in July – I cannot wait!
Who is your greatest inspiration?
Definitely my dad. I know it's probably everyone's answer, but he's my biggest role model, cheer squad and confidence booster.
What’s the most important lesson life has taught you?
That small things like smiling at the person in the elevator, taking the time to say hello to someone sitting alone in a coffee shop, holding the door open for an elderly person or making your mum coffee can make a big difference. I know when I moved out of home, I really appreciated it when people made the effort to do those things for me.
What does the future hold for Georgia Gibbs?
I don't like to plan. I prefer to take every day in my stride and work towards being the best version of myself.
The last time I was in lockdown was in 1969, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, because racial riots broke out...
