IS: Talk us through your beauty regimen ahead of a major runway event?
KG: "I don’t do anything different right before a show, I try to stay consistent and do the same thing everyday, which is taking care of myself, drinking a lot of water. I don’t wear make-up when I’m not working so as soon as I’m off-duty I use a gentle cleanser and just put a face balm on."
IS: Talk us through your typical ‘day on a plate’
KG: "My main foods that I eat are vegetables and salads. I also incorporate a lot of lean protein, mainly seafood."
IS: Do you have cheat meals?
KG: "I look to have raw vegan chocolate and I love peanut butter, so I eat a little of these things everyday."
IS: Do you have a favourite look or trend from the new Kookai collection?
KG: "I love all the looks but my favourite is a gorgeous summer dress (Liliana Dress, $240; at kookai.com.au) paired with a fur coat. I'm obsessed with the dress it's really pretty."
IS: The theme of the new campaign is Le Parisienne, what’s your favourite spot when visiting the French city?
KG: "The first place that comes to mind is an amazing restaurant that I've only been to once but it's probably the best restaurant that I've ever been to, I don't remember the name but we went there after the 2016 Victoria's Secret show."
IS: Do you have any tips for taking the perfect selfie?
KG: "I don’t really have a tip I just stick up my phone and sometimes it works and other times it doesn’t but I think the most important thing is finding good lighting. "
IS: How do you keep fit?
KG: "I workout six days a week, even when I'm travelling I make it work. I do a lot of pilates, jump-rope, running and walking. I try to walk between twenty and thirty kilometres per day which is really far!"
