How you can be the next top model

Montana Cox is a runway pro. She has walked for local and international designers, and is one of David Jones' fashion ambassadors. With her chameleon-like looks and ability to rock a pixie cut like no one else, this Australian beauty is everyone's girl crush.

Here we chat with Montana on her favourite model moments:

Tell us about your most surreal experience in the industry. 
You get put in surreal situations all the time where you have to pinch yourself, but being sandwiched between Michael Jordan and Quentin Tarantino at a show would be one of the most surreal moments.

Tell us who'd be on your dream team for a shoot.
I would have Pat McGrath on makeup, Karl Lagerfeld styling and Patrick Demarchelier shooting!

What's the craziest thing you've ever had to do to to get the shot?
Probably walking over a platform in a pool in a zorb ball might take the cake.

What do you think is the major misconception people have about modelling?
The glamorous life! There is a lot of behind the scenes that people don't see! And also the idea that models don't eat. 

How important do you think social media is to an aspiring model?
In this day and age, social media is everything. It is very important for aspiring models to be aware of the impact it can have on your career, and also the role it plays in being confirmed for a job. 

What's your favourite shot in your portfolio? Tell us the story behind it. 
My favourite shoot right now was the David Jones AW '15 campaign, it's really strong, edgy and very editorial.

What advice would you give to prospective entrants who want to Walk With DJs? 
A few tips: be confident but not cocky, try and bring a little personality and a smile always helps.

What do you think is the most important thing you've learned during your time as a working model? 
To not care what other people think! 

Where do you see yourself in ten years time? 
Hopefully still in the industry or maybe presenting or acting and still travelling the world.
