Local model student set to strut
MIRANDA Kerr is proof you can transform yourself from country girl to international supermodel.
If that’s what you want, of course.
She came from Gunnedah and Caitlin Jaeger, almost 17, comes from Lismore.
The Year 11 St John’s Woodlawn student will be among the contestants in the Woman’s Day Miss Country Girl Australia heat at Lismore Shopping Square on September 15.
If she makes the final, she’ll strut the stage with other girls from rural/regional areas across Australia in Sydney in December.
Caitlin, who is currently with Gilchrist models, says she’s not too nervous as she has already had plenty of practice on the catwalk.
“I’ve been modelling for four years,” she said, adding she is also watching videos of past competitions to prepare.
Caitlin is the face of Tripp Industries FMX (extreme sports clothing) and also models for brands including Donnie Bishop, My Designer Wardrobe and Clementine Designs.
This year she travelled to Brisbane’s Australia’s Next Top Model auditions, representing herself as well as Lismore.
In 2010, Karlee O’Donnell, of Bendigo, Victoria, was crowned Miss Country Girl Australia 2010 and was signed to line up on the catwalk alongside international models Miranda Kerr and Abby-lee at Chic.
Caitlin, whose favourite school subjects are textiles and visual arts, said she hoped to get an apprenticeship as a beautician when she leaves school this year and to eventually become a professional make-up artist.
