Breaking the myth that models starve themselves is Anna Therese Pembroke. Straight from the land down under, the model shot with us during our second round of designer shoots and stunned us with her versatility in bohemian threads by Monica Dogra to sleek swimwear by Shivan & Narresh. Having left for Australia the day after the shoot, Anna couldn’t stop raving about her homeland and regaled us with stories throughout. Maybe it was her innate nature or her excitement over heading back home, but the model was full of energy! An absolute delight to work with, we got to know more about her through a quick chat. Here’s what she had to say:
