Meet Claire Parker, 24 year old model and actor from Sydney, Australia. A rising star that has taken 2015 by the horns. She recently competed in the 2015 Antler Miss Universe Australia competition and has just been crowned Miss Grand Australia 2015. She is ambitious, savvy, fun and most importantly a down to earth – lover of life. We sat down and had a chat with Claire to get a snippet into her life, what motivates her and to get some advice on how to crack the modelling world!

1) How would your best friend describe you?

I’d say my best friends would describe me as a big goof ball haha! That I’m the kind of person who’s always up for an adventure, always smiling and though I work hard and have big dreams, I never take life or myself too seriously. I have a big heart and always look out for the people I love and I’m weirdly obsessed with cats! Hahaha!

2) When do you feel most confident?

When I’m looking and feeling my best and feel prepared for the situation I’m in. There’s nothing worse than being thrown in the deep end and feeling completely unprepared for what lies ahead!

3) You recently competed in the Antler Miss Universe Australia 2015 contest – what was the one thing you walked away from learning about yourself?

This was the second time I’d competed for the Miss Universe Australia crown (the first was in 2011), and I think the most important thing I learned was to just have fun with it and not take it too seriously. I know I can sometimes get so set on things it’s hard to step back and look at situations objectively, but just being realistic about the competition and knowing that while only one girl will win, there’s still so many amazing opportunities and experienced that can be gained from partaking made it a much more enjoyable experience for me!

4) How did you control your nerves in such a publicized event like that?

To be honest I’ve always loved being on stage and being in the spotlight haha I was apparently a very attention seeking child! So I really love getting on stage and performing! The thing is in competitions like that, you only really get one chance while you’re on the stage to show the audience and the judges who you are, so despite how nervous you may be, you’ve just got to push it aside and give it all you’ve got! Fake it til you make it!

5) You are in such great shape and have a beautiful glow about you. What’s your day to day routine with diet and exercise and what are some tips you can give the Naked Tan girls about how to maintain a healthy diet?

Thank you so much! I think it’s important to be realistic about what is and isn’t achievable in terms of diet and exercise and not try to be too strict on yourself or you won’t be able to maintain it! I am an ambassador for F45 training in Sydney so I train there 4-5 times a week which keeps me really fit and strong, plus the workouts are only 45 minutes long so you get in, smash it out, get out and continue with your day! I really thrive on sunshine and fresh air too, especially now that spring has begun! So I like to go for walks as often as I can, I find them very therapeutic and help keep my mind clear and focused! As far as diet, I try to keep it roughly 80/20 of good foods and ‘naughty’ foods. I am admittedly extremely in love with ice cream so it’s not unheard of for me to splurge on that from time to time! I figure all things in moderation, as long as you’re predominantly eating healthy and staying active there’s no harm in treating yourself sometimes, life is meant to be enjoyed after all!

6) To those wanting to break into the modelling world – what’s the one piece of advice you would give them?

Persevere, persevere, persevere. The Modelling industry is very ruthless and you will hear ‘no’ more times than you hear ‘yes’, I guarantee it. If you give up after your first ‘no’ you are guaranteed never to get anywhere, you just have to shrug it off and keep trying. I was modelling freelance for 5 years before I signed with my agency now and over the course of that time, had 3 separate interviews with them before they decided to sign me. The girls who get scouted on the street and become overnight sensations are one in a million and everyone else is grinding hard day in, day out to make it, so never give up because ultimately hard work is what pays off.

7) When do you wear fake tan and why do you wear it?

As often as I can get away with haha! I am vehemently against solariums and am very conscious of sun safety, but am unfortunately not blessed with naturally tanned skin so fake tanning suits me just fine!

8) What’s your favourite Naked Tan product?

I adore the Naked Tan Goddess Crème de la Crème. I use it even when I don’t have tan on! It’s so moisturizing and I feel it really absorbs into my skin.
