ELLY

Tell us about yourself.

I live in beautiful Devon with my husband, daughter, dog and two Guinea pigs! I am a lover of animals, hair and makeup, video games and musicals!

What inspired you to be involved in this campaign shoot?

I really wanted to be involved in this shoot to represent those who may look like me, as you cannot be what you don't see. Growing up I never saw many women in magazines or TV who looked like me, so I'm so glad to use this platform to celebrate diversity and embrace every woman for who they are. I'm curvy, neuro-divergant, mixed race and a mother.

What is your proudest achievement?

Not giving up, because let's face it, life can be hard - but there's so many beautiful moments to it, so don't forget to take them in.

Which women inspire you the most and why?

There are so many amazing women who inspire me, who stand up and speak out for what they believe in and use their platform to educate others. But closer to home would definitely be my grandmother and mother, for being incredibly resilient, and my daughter who makes me smile every day!

This year’s International Women’s Day 2024 theme is #InspireInclusion. What does this mean to you?

As I said above, representing those who may not always be seen. Every individual who identifies as a woman is wonderful!

I really enjoyed my day, everyone was so welcoming and professional. 

I loved chatting to my makeup artist and hair stylist who were definitely my hype girls for the photoshoot having never modelled before. 

I really appreciated all the little touches, and the amazing suppliers who were part of the shoot. 

It's a day I will never forget and will cherish, and made me realise how much I enjoy modelling.
