Effortlessly cool, Codie Young is one of fashion's main stars. From being the face of 'Dot' by Marc Jacobs to Valentino campaigns, this girl has entranced everyone with her Aussie charm and quirky personality.

 

Full name?
Codie Louise Young 

Where are you from?
Australia

When is your birthday?
1st November

How were you discovered?
At a shopping centre!

When did you move to London?
I moved to London about one and a half years ago

What’s the best thing about Australia?
The blessed lifestyle it offers you. The beach, incredible food, great people, adventure and things that seem like a fantasy. 

How does it feel to have been the face of Dot the Marc Jacobs fragrance?
Incredible; I'm so lucky to have been chosen to become the face of Dot. 

What’s your favourite smell?
Vanilla and red wine.

What has been your career highlight so far?
Being the face of Dot.

What would you be doing if you weren’t modelling?
I think I would be a artist/painter, maybe working at a quirky bookstore. Possibly studying; maybe marine biology something like that. 

What’s the most rebellious thing you’ve ever done?
Too many to name haha. 

What was the last text you received?
From my friend Tim who I sent a funny cartoon picture to. His reply was "This guy is the ultimate goof" haha. 

What was the last thing that made you laugh?
A conversation with some friends about childhood and imaginary friends and the crazy things we got up to as kids.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Honestly I really don't know. Maybe still living in London and still modelling. Maybe I will be back in Australia living on a beach and painting all day. Probably covered in tattoos. Who knows- the possibilities are endless!

"I think this is a really beautiful song about love and friendship. A good reminder that you need to work on all relationships and not give up no matter how hard it gets if you want things to work out."

"This song reminds me of my dad. We would take long drives as kids in the ute with the music blazing and sing so loudly (with not much skill)."

"I love this song because it reminds me of my mum. She use to play it all the time when I was a kid. A good song and a good reminder to cherish the life you have and how lovely it is."
