7 Things You Don’t Know About Australian Model Megan Irwin

Can someone please explain to us how Australia can produce so many incredible models? We’d love to get to the bottom of it. Fresh face Megan Irwin is set for big things. Her bee-stung lips, honey blonde hair and golden skin put her up there with her quintessential Australian look—but there’s also something else about her (maybe it’s the piercing blue eyes and husky voice), that take her to other-worldly status. If she isn’t walking a Victoria’s Secret runway in the next few years, we promise to pinch ourselves.

Last night, she hit the runway for the David Jones A/W 16 fashion launch, so we stole a few moments of her time to find out everything you need to know about this star on the rise. Keep scrolling to see why we’re falling more in love by the second.

“I feel most comfortable wearing jeans and a tee with sneakers. And I’ll never get sick of wearing double denim! I don’t care if it’s in or out, I’ll always wear it!”

But she knows what she doesn’t like...
